East Athens Development Corporation Launches "Project Inspire"

State and local leaders will gather in Athens as the “East Athens Development Corporation launches "Project Inspire." The new initiative is designed to use media, including digital and social media platforms, to encourage improved academic achievement among Clarke County students.

District 118 Representative Spencer Frye is attending that launch.

Frye says there are still too many households without reliable access to high-speed internet.

The launch is made possible by a $5,000 donation from Spectrum. It takes place at the East Athens Development Corporation from 4 to 5 pm Tuesday.
