July 28—Teachers and other employees of the Bibb County school district gave each other mini-massages in a interesting start to Tuesday’s convocation.

“I do not know what you’re expecting out of your keynote this morning, but whatever you’re expecting, I am not it,” said the featured speaker, Dave Weber.

He had everyone in the Macon Coliseum stand shoulder to shoulder, then turn slightly toward the right (and then to the left) so each person could massage the back in front of them.

Some folks, he said, gave him the “stink eye” because he ended the massage session too soon. The arena erupted with laughter.

The convocation theme for the school district was “leadership you can believe in.”

Before introducing Weber, school Superintendent Curtis Jones told school employees the gathering was about coming together to make this year the best year the school system has ever had.

“I feel very, very refreshed by the common sense that he’s bringing to Bibb County schools,” said Chris Kirby, an assistant principal at Porter Elementary.

Brenda Hickey, a physical education teacher at Porter and Skyview Elementary, echoed Kirby’s sentiment.

“I think that there’s going to be some changes, and I’m up to changes,” she said. “I think changes are good. I’m looking forward for an exciting year.”
