Partnership 2000 joins local business and the Catoosa County Schools System to provide needs that were not readily available before the program began. Businesses provide mentors, programs, and financial assistance to the schools they partner with to enhance students education. Former Sheriff Phil Summers was a beginning figure with Partnership 2000 and has served on the Executive Board for the past 14 years. Last year alone the Sheriff provided more than 11,234 hours of services and $261,930 in financial support to make our schools safe and drug free. Sheriff Sisk will continue to support Partnership 2000 in the same spirit as his predecessor.
