(Carrollton, Ga. – January 7, 2016) Georgia Public Service Commissioner Mr. Tim Echols recently
addressed Central High School class officers and student council members. Mr. Echols detailed how he
was inspired by Chick-Fil-A founder Mr. Truett Cathy, while attending North Clayton High School. Mr.
Echols stressed setting goals and then striving to reach those goals. Students were able to ask questions
about the Public Service Commission, energy plans for Georgia, and how federal laws affect not only
business but the individual consumer.
“Mr. Echols challenged our student leaders to go beyond what is expected, both in the classroom and in
community service,” said Principal Mr. Jared Griffis. He continued, “Our students commented on how
his enthusiasm was contagious and thanked him for taking time from his busy day to meet with them.”
