Dear Dooly Community, Basketball season is here, and while we are looking forward to a winning season for our Bobcats and Lady Bobcats, safety for all is the top priority this year. Due to the gym’s aging ventilation system and per Department of Public Health guidance, we are currently limiting the number of spectators who can enter our gymnasium at this time. We continue to monitor COVID spread with the hope of increasing capacity, so we ask that you please remain patient. We appreciate our loyal fan presence, and we want you to know that we will protect our students and families as best as possible. We will livestream games through the official Dooly County High School Facebook page. Please follow the Bobcat teams on livestream until we are able to allow more spectators in the gymnasium. We ask for your continued support as we gear up for a great basketball season. GO BOBCATS!

The Georgia Department of Education released its 2019-20 high school graduation rates on November 10, 2020. Dooly County High School has earned a graduation rate of 90.24%, the highest rating DCHS has received since calculations began in 2012. This means that the 2016-2017 freshman class had 90.24% of its students to complete high school in a four-year period. The Dooly County High school graduation rate surpasses the state of Georgia 2019-20 four-year graduation rate of 83.8 %, meaning that Dooly County once again beat the state average. “This is only the beginning of what is to come as we continue to ‘Head to the Top,’ Dooly County High School Principal Jerry Sanders states. I would like to congratulate the teachers and students for a job well done. I would also like to thank the administrative team for their support. As principal, I would like all stakeholders to know the best is yet to come.” Superintendent Dr. Craig Lockhart adds, “Graduating high school on time is a feat accomplished by the combined efforts of families, students, and all teachers, leaders, faculty and staff from birth up to the senior year. While we are very pleased with these results, we will not stop until we reach 100% of our students earning a high school diploma. I wholeheartedly congratulate the Class of 2020 who are living up to their fullest potential by completing high school. This is Dooly, and we are indeed Headed to the TOP!” Respectfully, Dr. Craig Lockhart Superintendent,
The Dooly County Young Farmers attended the Central Region Young Farmer Caucus on Monday, November 9, 2020, in Wrightsville, GA. The Dooly County Young Farmer Chapter was recognized as the Central Region Chapter of the Year and in contention for the State Chapter of the Year. This award will be given at the Young Farmer State Convention in January 2021. Also, the voting delegates at the caucus elected Abby Green, Dooly County Young Farmer Member, as the Junior Director for the Georgia Young Farmer Board. This also automatically places her as Senior Director for the 2022 year. She will be taking her place on the board in January at the convention also. Having a member of our chapter on the board is an outstanding accomplishment that represents Dooly County and our Young Farmer Program well. Thank you for your continued support of the Young Farmer Program in Dooly County. David West, Ed.D. Dooly County Young Farmer Advisor Dooly County High School
