At the first Annual Golden Gordon Awards, a Gordon County Schools community partner was honored for his many decades of service and support to Gordon County Schools and the Gordon County community.

Sam Thomas, owner and general manager of WJTH radio, has been seen on the sidelines of the Gordon Central High football field since the school’s inaugural season. For over thirty years, Sam has spent every Friday night at GCHS, actively captivating and reporting the events of each game.

Mr. Thomas also partners with Gordon County Schools to help promote transparent communication to the community at large, allowing GCS to share updates, information, and stories that are shared daily on the local radio station. Throughout the year, you may also hear Gordon County Schools staff and Superintendent sharing stories, highlights, and upcoming events live on the radio with D.J. Larry Gibson.

In recognition of his commitment to maintaining a local radio station with a positive platform focused on sharing the good news of Gordon County, his countless hours of service to Gordon County Schools, and the promotion of the community at large, we are honored to name Sam Thomas our 2022-2023 Community Partner of the Year.
