How are our public schools doing? Chamber hosts Lunch & Learn

How are our public schools doing? How did students fare through Covid? Where should Wharton ISD go from here?

Public education is foremost on the minds of many people — Wharton is no exception.

Toward that end, Wharton Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture has invited Dr. Michael O’Guin, Wharton ISD school superintendent, to be the speaker at out next Lunch and Learn.


It will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, at Wharton Civic Center. It comes with lunch, and you can get your tickets now.

Because of Covid, 2020 has become the year we would like to forget but will remember forever. And many challenges lie ahead. Dr. O’Guin will tell us where we are and the road to get to where we need to go.

The Lunch and Learn will be at the Wharton Civic Center. Tickets are $10. You will get a covid-safe box lunch.

Get your tickets at the chamber office; email helpdesk@whartonchamber.com for more information.

Successful towns have successful schools. Please attend.

Thanks to those who came to the chamber ribbon cutting at Dominque Gordon’s DesignerISH held Thursday evening at Eastgate Plaza. Her clothing store and boutique helps fill a great need, women’s apparel, and Dominque was born to do it.

The next chamber ribbon cutting is Thursday, July 22, at Nedra Johnson’s Simply Divine Event Center. The ribbon cutting is at 5 p.m., and an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Her new location, 300 W. Milam St., is out of this world beautiful. Nedra helps bring life to Wharton. And we thank her for it.
