National statistics show that one out of every three public high school students will not graduate. These dropouts create tremendous burdens on our economy. Cobb residents will have the opportunity to support at-risk students in our community Monday-Thursday, Aug. 20-23, during Communities in Schools Marietta/Cobb County’s Dine Out For Kids. Participating restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds to the nonprofit organization. Money raised will allow Communities in Schools to continue providing after-school, youth leadership, parent education and other important programs. This will help prevent drop-outs and prepare students to succeed in school and plan for college and careers.
