County commissioner Tim Stamey is still learning after all these years and now he has a certificate to show for it. The ACCG which is Georgia’s County Association, recently awarded Stamey for successfully completing the core requirements in the Lifelong Learning Academy. Stamey tells WCHM he took a dozen classes ranging from finance to appraisal and taxation over a 13 month period. The press release announcing the award says every county official has a tailor-made learning experience that allows them to excel in specific areas of expertise.
