Recognizing Our MCS Angels

MCS Angel Award Presentation to


Ed Voyles Automotive Group


Marietta City Schools is fortunate to have community organizations and individuals who continuously go above and beyond what is 

expected for our schools. They are the MCS Angels amongst the Blue Devils who show great support for the students we serve each school day.  It is with honor that we celebrate our angels by launching the MCS Angels Award – presented to community organizations, individuals, and businesses who have donated the time, talents, and funds to benefit MCS.  It is our way of saying “Thank You.”


The Ed Voyles Automotive Group was recently recognized by the Board of Education and given the MCS Angel Award for their continued partnership with MCS that began over nine years ago. Cumulatively, Ed Voyles has donated $45,000 as the Title Sponsor for the MCS Teacher of the Year and Employee Awards Banquet.  For nearly a decade they have generously given the MCS System Teacher of the Year a free one year lease for the car of their choice. Along with cars for our System TOTY, an MCS employee may enjoy free oil changes and a 15% discount on service and parts at Ed Voyles for an Acura, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Honda, Hyundai, or KIA.


In addition, MCS participates in the Marietta City July 4th Freedom Parade, and each year board members have driven in convertibles on loan from Ed Voyles. Their dedication and commitment to education and our community is unparalleled. Their generosity goes into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and is unsurpassed.

School Bus Safety Matters

As students return to school, the Georgia Department of Education and State School Superintendent Richard Woods are urging motorists to use caution when approaching a school bus and to brush up on the law regarding passing a bus.  

According to Georgia law, vehicles traveling in BOTH directions must stop when a school bus activates its stop-arm on a two-lane road or a multi-lane road with no median or barrier. Vehicles traveling in the same direction as a school bus must always stop, but motorists traveling in the opposite direction can proceed (with caution) when there is an unpaved median or concrete barrier separating the opposing lanes. More>>

 responsibility to Graduate Marietta.
