ATLANTA – Grayson Mayor Allison Wilkerson received the prestigious Certificate of Recognition from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute at the Georgia Municipal Association’s (GMA) Annual Mayors’ Day Conference in Atlanta on January 25.

To receive a Certificate of Recognition, a city official must complete a minimum of 42 units of credit, including at least 18 hours from the required list. The training program consists of a series of more than 50 courses.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” said GMA Executive Director Lamar Norton. “We commend Mayor Wilkerson for this accomplishment and for the dedication she’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”
