Project Chimps

Kennesaw Mountain High School is proud to announce our partnership with Project Chimps.

Project Chimps

“After almost 100 years of using chimpanzees for invasive biomedical research in the United States, scientists, politicians, policy-makers and the public all agree: it’s no longer necessary, and chimpanzees deserve retirement in accredited sanctuaries…a “super group” of chimpanzee, nonprofit, philanthropic, and legal experts joined together, and founded Project Chimps in 2014 to provide sanctuary for a majority of the last remaining chimpanzees in private research facilities…(this) 36-acre sanctuary is nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, and will eventually provide sanctuary for up to 300 chimpanzees.”

Due to our unique partnership, Project Chimps has graciously granted Kennesaw Mountain students unprecedented access to the facility and the wonderful work they do. Students will see firsthand the ethical consequences of biomedical research and the implications and importance of environmental stewardship. We could not be more excited for this unique, real-world learning opportunity. To learn more about Project Chimps please access the following link:


We continue to actively fundraise in support of this worthy cause. If you are interested in donating, please contact either

Teacher of the Year

TOTY Jeremy WhitakerThis year’s TOTY is a vital part of the Mustang family. Mr. Whitaker can be seen helping students and programs all over the campus including homecoming building, Skills USA, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He helps his students earn certifications in different vocational avenues, which provides them opportunities to gain employment in well-paying careers straight out of high school. His construction program was recently selected by Governor Deal to advertise and represent the new Skilled Trades Awareness Program for the state of Georgia. Mr. Whitaker is committed to ensuring that his students have the knowledge and skills to be leaders in the workforce.


Certified Employee of the Year

CEOTY Tedra EmersonMs. T (Mrs. Tedra Emerson) is the first person students see as they enter the building in the morning and is a friendly face around the cafeteria. She goes out of her way to build relationships with students, encouraging them to be better, work harder, and do their best! Ms. T leads by example. No job is too big or too small. She tackles every task with a smile and quiet enthusiasm. Above all, this year’s CEOTY can be described as a ray of sunshine to everyone she comes in contact with.
