A weekly feature highlighting the best of Brookhaven's Kids!
While twins often share only a birthdate and similar looks, Sammy and Kelly Fisher share much more than that! These 8 year old red heads are both part of the Discovery (gifted) Program at Ashford Park, as well as award winning students. Their strong sense of empathy and compassion not only come across in the way they listen, learn and respect people around them, but has earned them a spot on the front page of the Brookhaven Reporter highlighting a lemonade stand they created with their friends, raising $45 to help with a new playground for their school.

Stressing that a plan to redistrict county schools isn’t a done deal, more than 150 middle DeKalb parents and residents turned out Thursday night to develop a plan that, as one leader said, “stops the bleeding.” “Our hope is to work as a community and create a plan that minimizes the disruption in our neighborhoods, but still meets the county’s goals,” said Katie Bell, one of the organizers of the meeting held at the Leafmore Creek Park Clubhouse.
