 MONEY MAKING SENSE FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
 EVENT: Grand opening of Special Education Bank South
 Branch of Learning
 WHEN: Thursday, April 23, 10 a.m.
 WHERE: Cobb County Public School System
 East Cobb Middle School Theater
 380 Holt Road, Marietta, GA 30068
 404-509-6023
 WHO: Hon. Newt Gingrich will cut the opening ribbon.
 Sen. Wyche Fowler, Cobb commissioners, legislative
 delegation and officials from the school board will
 also participate.
 Students with special needs at East Cobb Middle School will soon get a chance to learn first-hand about banking and money in a project co-sponsored by East Cobb Middle School and Bank South.
 Gail Heyman, Citizen Advisory Council Member, stated that this is the second in a series of projects collaborating with community businesses to give students in special education classes hands-on learning in the classroom. Kevin Isgette of Bank South at Powers Ferry Road is the banker behind this transaction and he and his staff have built a scaled-down bank in the classroom. The bank is fully equipped and is in complete operation with teller drawers stashed with real cash. During banking hours, calculators will be ringing while money is jingling as children learn all the details of a real bank.
 Cutting the ribbon for the East Cobb Middle School's Bank South Branch of Learning will be Congressman Newt Gingrich. The ceremony will take place at the East Cobb Middle School Theater on Thursday morning, April 23, at 10 a.m. Sen. Wyche Fowler and other officials will also participate. The public is invited to attend.
 According to Jerrie Paschal, executive director of the Cobb Association for Retarded Citizens, this is another triumph in an increasing trend toward school and business partnerships. The first event, which modeled a mini-Kroger store at Sope Creek Elementary School, was a national success and was covered by the New York Times, CNN and other media and has been duplicated in other areas.
