Classic City High School

Athens-Clarke County is a consolidated city-county situated in the State of Georgia. Athens is located in the northeastern section of the state. It comprises the former City of Athens proper, which is the county seat and Clarke County as well.

The University of Georgia is within this college town and truly responsible for the first growth of Athens. During nineteen ninety one, after a successful vote the year prior, the original city abandoned its charter and decided to form a unified government together with nearby Clarke County. The new region was referred to collectively as Athens-Clarke County. Based on the 2010 Census, the consolidated city county had a complete population of approximately 115,452. This combined population consisted of all of Athens-Clarke County minus a part of Winterville and Bogart.

Initially, Athens was no more than a trading settlement on the banks of Oconee River. In the latter part of the 1700s the region was called Cedar Shoals. On the 27th of January, the year 1875, the Georgia General Assembly chartered the University of Georgia as the very first chartered state-supported university. Abraham Baldwin drafted the charter which existed solely on paper for 16 years.

A delegation of men including Hugh Lawson, John Twiggs, John Milledge, Baldwin and George Walton traveled in the summer of 1801, to the region called Jackson County. Their objective was to pick the future location for their university and to secure a construction contract for the university. Unanimously, the delegation agreed on the site of the property on the hill above the Oconee River and Cedar Shoals. On the 25th of July, 1801, Daniel Easley sold 633 acres to Milledge and afterward donated it to the university. The land was named Athens to honor the Greek city that was the center of culture and learning during ancient times.

Roughly 125 square miles make up the Athens-Clarke County. Amongst Georgia's 159 counties, this one has the smallest land area. One of the highest points within Athens is designated by City Hall within the downtown core. It is situated approximately 761 feet above sea level. Athens-Clarke County was the 25th county established in the state. It is about sixty five miles northeast of Atlanta.

There is a diverse economy within the area that is built up of many sectors including poultry processing, healthcare, timber, education and tourism. Other major factors for the economy consist of the production of items like for instance electrical components, textiles, transportation equipment, apparel, and industrial machinery. Also, Athens is considered to be the major center for trade in the Northeast Georgia region.

Within Athens, there are certain occupations which are much more common than in other areas of the US. Like for instance, coil winders, bio-technology technicians, machine feeders and off-beaters, tapers, finishers, surgical technologists, metal fabricators as well as veterinary technologists and technicians are amongst the most popular professions.

The top sectors for employment within the area comprise: Government, Healthcare, Management, Education, Administrative Sales and Support, Manufacturing as well as Business and Finance.
