The first group of apprentices in Georgia’s German-style apprenticeship program – piloted in Coweta County – graduated last spring, and the students and businesses involved in the initial effort were honored by the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern United States, Inc. (GACC South) at the Wunderbar Together PopUp Tour in Midtown Atlanta Wednesday.
