The state Board of Public Safety will gather Thursday morning at Effingham County High School for one of its regularly-scheduled meetings.

The Board of Public Safety is mandated to meet at least eight times a year and at least once a year changes the meeting to an information-sharing session at a high school with presentations that are relative to the students, according to vice-chairman Ellis Wood of Statesboro.

“We share information we hope will have a positive impact on their lives and their futures,” he said. “We will make presentations that we hope will help them later in life.”

Scheduled to make presentations to the ECHS students are the state Department of Public Safety, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Georgia Public Safety Training Center, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Corrections.

The board also will conduct is usual business, with reports from the directors of the Department of Public Safety, GBI and GPSTC.

Longtime board member Murray Kight of Springfield also will be honored for years of his service.
