U.S. Army Soldiers with the Waynesboro-based Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, Georgia Army National Guard, were stationed at the Waynesboro Armory to prepare for their October 17, 2021 deployment. On two occasions, Burke County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Angela Williams, allowed the Soldiers to use the Burke County Teaching and Learning Facility in preparation for their deployment. As a token of their gratitude, the Soldiers presented Dr. Williams with a 202nd EOD coin. They have been overwhelmed by the support given by Burke County Schools and the Burke County Community.
