Volume 16, Issue 2 – Spring 2023

Hello, all. It’s already our spring season here in Foley. I hope everyone is enjoying the weather. The winter guests and spring break season have come and gone. Both are an important part of our economy.
Our Foley schools continue to achieve honors and awards. Two of our teachers received the Baldwin County Teacher of the Year at last month’s event.
Ursula Thompson, from Foley High School, is the Baldwin County Board of Education Secondary Teacher of the Year. Amy Barker, from Foley Elementary School, is BCBOE Elementary Teacher of the Year. Congratulations to them both. This shows the quality of the teachers in our Foley system. All of our teachers, administrators and support staff work hard to create a tremendous environment for our students to achieve success.
I attended a recent Reach and Teach event at Foley High School. The statewide program was the foundation for a collaborative effort between FHS, The Velcro Pygmies and OWA. The event included a concert that featured both the FHS Noise Band and The Velcro Pygmies. The students handled all aspects of the performance as a learning event—from playing music to handling sound and lighting to creating stage props. Kudos to them.
I am pleased to report that the John B. Foley Park Fountain Project is complete and last month brought the opening of the new section of North Pecan Street. We will finish the final phase of the Wilbourne Antique Rose Trail shortly. Progress continues on the Juniper Street extension and we have started the connection that will open South Pecan from Highway 98 south beyond County Road 10.
