Madison Chamber inaugurates ‘Back-to-School Breakfast’

MADISON – Madison Chamber of Commerce is presenting the premiere of a timely community event, the inaugural “Back-to-School Breakfast.”

Madison City Schools is co-hosting the event on Aug. 9 from 7 to 9:30 a.m. The event’s venue will be CrossPointe Church, 78 Hughes Road in Madison.

The Back-to-School Breakfast celebrates the 25th anniversary of the founding of Madison City Schools.

This event will feature a keynote speech by MCS Superintendent Dr. Ed Nichols. Nichols will give recognition of the school district’s grassroots formation, accomplishments and the ways in which the district is progressing.

“The Madison Chamber of Commerce is excited to co-host this celebration event in partnership with Madison City Schools, celebrating 25 years of our great school district,” Michelle Epling said. Epling is Executive Director of Madison Chamber of Commerce.

“We have so many blessings in our community and our school system is one of the shining spotlights of what makes our community great and our future workforce so very strong and bright,” Epling said.

From 7:30 to 8 a.m., guests can enjoy scanning the breakfast buffet and using the time for networking with colleagues. A program for legacy celebration will start at 8 a.m.

“Being a fairly new community, with many new residents, it is important for them to know more about the district as a whole, how we were formed (by local residents) and how community involvement and support help the district and the community’s impact on MCS,” Epling said. Guests at the breakfast will “learn about MCS and all the outstanding accomplishments, see highlights of the district and understand where we are going.”

Sponsorships are available at the silver, bronze and table levels. For more information about supporting the event as a sponsor, email Epling at

As of July 21, the event sponsors are Nola VanPeursem Architects P.C., Volkert Inc. and Alabama A&M University.
