Unity in the Community: Henry Students Best Public Safety Officers in Basketball Game


Try as they might, Henry County public safety officers just couldn’t match the speed, agility and skill of the county’s most talented senior basketball players Friday night.

The two teams went head-to-head in an exhibition basketball game at Stockbridge High School Friday as part of Stockbridge’s Georgia Cities Week celebration. The officers trailed the seniors from Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy and Stockbridge, Eagle’s Landing, Union Grove and Dutchtown high schools for most of the game.

Stockbridge City Councilwoman Neat Robinson put on the event as a way to “bridge the gap” between law enforcement and the community’s youth.
