Carrollopoly Comes to Town
The Carroll County constitutional officers are now accepting orders for the new board game Carrollopoly.
Based on Carroll County, the familiar and popular family board game style features landmarks, businesses and other recognizable aspect of the community.
“The constitutional officers of Carroll County are looking forward to promoting education in our county,” said Carroll County Tax Commissioner Vickie Bearden. “We feel there is a strong need to fund GED testing, and we want to give high school students a head start on their college education.”
Proceeds from the game will be used to help fund a brand new scholarship fund throughout Carroll County for students and adults. The goal is to help remove obstacles for local residents to gain their GED and open up new and attractive employment opportunities. The proceeds will also provide high school students with scholarship funds.
