|HENRY COUNTY, GA- June 17, 2021—District IV Commissioner Vivian Thomas and her GAME On youth engagement program held a groundbreaking ceremony for Mickie D. Cochran Park renovations on Wednesday, June 16.|
During the ceremony, Thomas introduced her GAME On students and shared with the crowd her excitement and appreciation for their hard work on the project.
“They have been trained in leadership and decision-making skills and have taken the time to do the research. They did a virtual survey and put it on Facebook and got community input. They’ve done comparative studies of other parks in the area and in other counties to determine what is needed for this particular park,” said Thomas. “They have done the work.”
The GAME On youth group said that the Mickie D. Cochran Park renovations will include a new football field and accompanying facilities, a new parking lot, two full basketball courts to replace the four outdated half courts, a tennis court, an expanded walking trail, two community pavilions, two playgrounds, a restroom facility and an outdoor gym.
