FORT BENNING, Ga. (Aug.1, 2012) -- As students prepare for their return to the classroom, Fort Benning is giving parents a forum to discuss concerns and get answers. The installation's third virtual town hall through Facebook is set for Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Garrison Commander Col. Jeffrey Fletcher and nearly 70 representatives will gather inside the Maneuver Center of Excellence headquarters to field questions from hundreds of Families via Facebook during the 90-minute event.
In keeping with previous virtual town halls, experts will also be on hand to answer questions about a variety of topics, including safety, housing, youth programs and training in addition to Fort Benning schools.
"We are able to supply a lot of great information about various issues and provide avenues for people to get solutions to challenges they may be having," said Tiffani Migliore, the garrison planner organizing the event.
With the focus on schools, Col. Jeffrey Fletcher said he hopes Families will walk away feeling more knowledgeable and engaged with their children's education and the school administration.
"I think we would all agree that our children's education is a priority," he said.
Ground rules will be posted prior to the start of the town hall. Questions will be answered in the order they are received. Look for a roll-up of questions and answers in next week's Bayonet.
The event is open to the public and all are invited to participate by logging onto Fort Benning's official Facebook at www.facebook.com/fortbenningfans.
