Ms. Raymonia Mathis
FVMS Teacher of the Year

Ms. Mathis received her BS Degree in Accounting from Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia and her Master of Public Administration Degree from Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. 

After working for the Office of Secretary of State for five years, she transitioned into the education field as a high school Mathematics teacher in the Bibb County School System.  A native of Fort Valley and a product of Peach County Schools, Ms. Mathis was ecstatic when she received the offer to come home to teach at Fort Valley Middle School. 

Now in her tenth year of teaching, she finds her accomplishments in not what she has done, but in what her students are able to do.  It is her belief that in addition to teaching, it’s her responsibility to encourage her students to believe in themselves and always strive for excellence so they may become productive members of society.

CONGRATULATIONS, MS. MATHIS!!

Georgia Power Executives Speak to FVMS 8th Grade Science Students

Students in Mrs. Banter's and Mrs. Phelps' 8th grade science classes were given a lesson about the various forms of energy and transformation of energy.  Mr. Norrie McKenzie and Mr. Bert Pierce of Georgia Power literally gave a "powerful" presentation about the history of Georgia Power and all of the various sources of energy used in Georgia.  Mr. McKenzie and Mr. Pierce work specifically with renewable energy and brought a solar panel to show the students.  Each student was presented with a 13 watt compact light bulb.  Two students won a solar energy kit.  

Mr. McKenzie is from Fort Valley and graduated from Peach County High School and Georgia Tech. He is the brother of Mrs. Mary Jean Banter, FVMS 8th grade teacher. He was recently selected as Vice-President of Renewable Development for Georgia Power.  

Mr. Pierce is a native of Atlanta and graduated from Northside High School , University of Georgia, and Mercer University. He is the Senior Renewable Development Lead for Georgia Power.
