Did you know that a prominent/notable hair care products entrepreneur and businessman is from Byromville, Ga originally? In Honor of Black History Month, Dooly County School System will feature each Wednesday a little known fact about the extraordinary accomplishments of African Americans. This is information that often leaves one saying or thinking, "oh, wow", and the phrase is then mostly followed by "I didn't know that." That was exactly what many Dooly County School System leaders said Monday during a meeting when our Superintendent, Dr. Sherrod Willaford, told us about Mr. Therman McKenzie, Sr. Enjoy reading about him in today's Black History Month Wow Wednesday.
