Give Our Schools A Hand (GOSH)

  • The Cobb Chamber of Commerce is proud to be celebrating 25 years of Give Our Schools a Hand.

    Originated in 1988, the purpose of GOSH is not only to show appreciation for teachers in the community, but also to encourage area businesses, parents, and civic groups to take an active role in enhancing the quality of education. Held annually, GOSH is a celebration that honors more than 130 Teachers of the Year from Cobb County, Marietta City and post-secondary education systems. This salute to public education is one of the largest in the nation.
