Thomaston-Upson Board of Education

L-R: Board Members Scott Roberts, Angeline McGill, Stephen Sadler, Chair Jaqueline Hollis, Vice Chair Jaye Eubanks, Sheila Hall, and Brian Salter.

The Thomaston-Upson Board of Education approved McGriff Insurance of Thomaston to continue as the board’s insurance carrier for another year during the Jan. 20 special called meeting.

McGriff Representative Scott Boatright remotely attended the meeting, providing the board with a breakdown of the premium summary, which includes an increase of 8.1 percent year over year, or $50,000.

Most of the increase comes from a 50 percent hike in automobile coverage, stemming from two bus-related claims. The other portion comes from an increase in property value, which has risen 22 percent year over year, according to Boatright, who attributed the increase to inflation.
