Holiday Ornament with Love

Throughout the year, GA State Superintendent Richard Woods loves to fill his office with student artwork from across the state. This year, he extended the opportunity for schools to contribute a student-created ornament to fill the office's Christmas tree. Congratulations to Auburn Elementary student Chole Mathis. As you can see, she put her heart in it.
