On Friday at 7 a.m., Marietta Work Matters had its Eight to Five speaker series at the corporate offices of Traton Homes on Kennesaw Avenue. Work Matters is a group of businesspeople who are working to strengthen their commitment to God from Monday to Friday by integrating faith into their working life.

Jack Hall, head of the Walker School in Marietta, an independent day school, delivered an inspirational speech about his faith. In June 2011, Hall succeeded former Headmaster Don Robertson who retired after 26 years. From 1999 to 2011, Hall served as head of school for the Augusta Preparatory Day School. He also taught at the Westminster School in Atlanta.

In 2013, Walker was chosen a Top Atlanta WorkPlace by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Among the attendees were Hall’s wife, Cathy, along with Ford Bohannon, Deanna Brown, Tom Clarke, Spain and Scott Gregory, Chris Harrison, Alex Koutouzis, Dana Poor, Chris Poston, Brian Robinson, Jaydee Smith and John Wills.


On March 14, the Metro Atlanta Fire Officers Association presented a check in the amount of $5,497.23 to the American Cancer Society Pink Ribbon Classic. MAFOA chose the Pink Ribbon Classic as their charity last year and sold T-shirts.
