(Isaiah 45:2 NIV)

God has already prepared a way for you.  HE has lain a path that will be easier than what you have perceived or what others have had to endure.  All you have to do is follow HIM.  HE has removed those things that hold you captive.  The only thing that binds you is yourself.  So let go, let GOD and realize it has already been done. LuvYa&BeBlessed.

Make it a Great day in Jesus!

Sammye E. Coan Middle School was constructed in 1965 and dedicated in 1967 as the first middle school in the state of Georgia. The school was named after Sammye E. Coan, a graduate of Spelman College, who was a renowned educator and community activist in the City of Atlanta . She taught for several years at Bell Street Elementary School and served as a principal of E.P. Johnson and Wesley Avenue elementary schools.

In 2011, Coan Middle School was added to a closure list for approximately 13 schools that was scheduled to close in 2012.  nelson_mandela_education_quoteBecause of determination, peaceful rallying and local business like Emory University, reaching out to the Atlanta Public School Board, Coan Middle School has not closed, instead has continue to show growth with the students academics.
