I want to offer my congratulations to Mayor Ford Gravitt, Councilmen Quincy Holton, Lewis Ledbetter, Ralph Perry, John D. Pugh and Rupert Sexton along with the staff of the city of Cumming for the vision, perseverance and ultimate success in bringing North Georgia College & State University and Gainesville State College to Cumming/Forsyth County.

This is truly a “community changing” event that is just the start of Mayor Gravitt’s long-standing vision to bring higher education to Cumming and Forsyth County.  Just think for a moment — our children will now have the opportunity to go to college right here at home and those striving for graduate degrees will be close to home as they try, in many cases, to balance full-time jobs, family and advanced degrees.

Mayor Gravitt has again shown leadership that benefits each and every resident of the county and deserves our thanks, our children’s thanks and thanks for generations to come.
