Dansby Swanson, shortstop for the Atlanta Braves, visited Green Acres Elementary School near Smyrna on Friday morning to celebrate the school’s improvement on Georgia Milestones testing. Georgia’s Own Credit Union teamed up with Swanson and Papa John’s to surprise more than 200 students and provide pizza as part of the credit union’s “85 Acts of Kindness” campaign. Georgia’s Own Credit Union also presented Swanson, who grew up in Marietta, with an $8,500 contribution to All Things Loyal, Swanson’s organization that sells Atlanta apparel and donated portions of the proceeds to charity.
