Show Notes

The Gwinnett Stripers have added new seafood dishes to the menus at CoolRay Field, as well as other menu items, to reflect its fish-themed name and logo. The change was initiated by Coolray Field Chef Jamerius "Chef Jay" Sims, who noticed a lack of seafood items in the stadium’s eateries. The three new seafood dishes include catfish baskets, fish tacos, and crab cake sandwiches. Other new items on the menu include Cuban sandwiches, home-brewed sweet tea, buffalo chicken philly, walking taco, blooming onion petals, and more.

More than 130 students recently attended the Olifer Math Competition held at Georgia Gwinnett College in honor of the late Dr. Andrei Olifer, a mathematics professor who founded and organized the competition. Olifer's daughter, Maria, said her father wanted to inspire an interest in math, education, and learning, and the competition serves as a fun and engaging way to accomplish those goals. The Olifer Competition is open to students from first through 10th grade and continues to grow in popularity.

Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent Calvin Watts will remain in charge of Georgia's largest school system through at least the end of June 2025, the county's school board decided Tuesday night.

The school board voted 4-1 to give Watts a two-year extension on his contract, which had previously been set to expire this summer. Board Chairwoman Tarece Johnson cast the lone vote against extending Watts' contract.

After the called meeting, Watts told reporters that he is "ready to continue to stay laser-focused on the academic, the behavioral, and the social well-being of each and every student" in the district. He sent an abridged version of his comments to parents and GCPS employees on Tuesday evening.
