Welcome from the Chairman

​When I think of Lee County, I think of Growing.  Everyday on my way to work, I see rows of cotton, peanuts and corn all growing in our fertile soil. On the radio and television, I hear “Home Grown” talent singing, playing baseball, and much, much more.  While I love boiled peanuts, country music, and sports I’m happy to say that Lee County is also good for growing Business.
The Lee County School System continues to rank in the top 5 in the state of Georgia year after year.  This means that approximately 400+ graduate each year better prepared to attend college or enter the work place as well trained, productive employees.  With upgraded facilities, after school clubs, and exciting sports teams, the school system is also a deciding factor for future employees looking to relocate to our area.
Lee County is also quickly becoming known for its beautiful waterways.  The Kinchafoonee Creek, Muckalee Creek, and Flint River are seeing increasing numbers of kayakers and canoers.  Folks from all over South Georgia and North Florida travel to enjoy a trip down our scenic waterways.  I can’t think of a much better way to spend a day than traveling down the slow moving water of a creek or taking a refreshing swim in an inviting blue hole! 
Another of the great resources of this county is its people.  Passion, Pride, and Enthusiasm are a few of the common threads shared between this community’s partners and are what is vital to making “life work well here!”  So whether you are looking to start a business, enjoy recreational activities, attend award winning schools, or find a place to call home, you should come and experience Lee County!
I am excited to be your Chairman in the coming year and look forward to working alongside the Chamber Staff, County Leaders, and our Community Partners to do our part in seeing Lee County grow and prosper!
 
Kyle Carter, 2018 Chairman
