Alpha Kappa Alpha held two drives at the school in September.
While youth and minorities are typically associated with low voter turnout, the UGA chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, a historically African American sorority, set up voter registration tables in the crowded food court of the Clarke Central High School. “Both times they contacted me, but I didn’t hesitate to tell them yes, come in,” said Reginald Thomas, an Assistant Principal at Clarke Central. The sorority held two drives in back to back weeks in late September. “If they were 18, I think they registered,” said Thomas, who believes the events were successful. Although many students weren’t eligible to vote at the time of the drives, Thomas believes it was still helpful in getting students to talk about the issues and voting in general. “You…

Get your northeast Georgia high school football preview here.
In the GHSA 8-A, the #1 in the region Athens Academy Spartans welcome the skidding Commerce Tigers. Once upon a time and not so long ago, the Tigers were ranked #10 in the state, but have taken a nosedive out of the rankings ever since. They were 4-0 but hadn't faced an 8-A opponent until being dismantled by George Walton Academy three weeks ago. Since then they have played only 8-A opponents and haven't won a single game. The Spartans, by contrast, are 6-0, 0-4 in region after beating Pinecrest last week by a score of 27-7. Commerce was blanked by Prince Ave last week, 30-0. Next week, Athens Academy faces George Walton Academy's Bulldogs. Prince Avenue Christian School's Wolverines host Hebron Academy tonight. PACS has had a playoff-…
