Bibb Schools Superintendent Jones to Speak, Answer Questions at Event Friday Evening

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021

After a turbulent school year due to COVID-19 and the recent announcement of $100 million new funding to Bibb County School District, Superintendent Curtis Jones will speak and take questions at The Grand Opera House on Friday at 7:30 PM. Jones has significantly raised graduation rates during his time as Bibb superintendent and was named National Superintendent of the Year in 2019. This event is free to attend with social distancing measures in place.

Macon Masters is a brand-new flagship series of speakers at The Grand featuring bold leaders in Central Georgia with the vision to tackle today’s most vital questions. The Grand will bring people together both locally and virtually, with in-person social distanced seating and digital access experiences available, making the series accessible to all audiences in this vulnerable climate. Through our livestream and Facebook page, audiences everywhere will be able to join in.

Let your voice be heard: Macon Masters puts audience members in the driver’s seat of listening and learning. The evening begins with a master talk. Then, the audience will submit their most pressing thoughts to be answered live onstage in a Q&A. There will be an opportunity for a post-event chat online much the way one might discuss with a neighbor as walking out of the theatre or at a local bar after the show. This is an opportunity to bridge connections to Central Georgians from different backgrounds after experiencing the event.
