LITHONIA, Georgia — Minister of Education Jerome Fitzgerald, accompanied by Bahamas consul general to Atlanta Randy Rolle and deputy consul general Monique Vanderpool, recently paid a courtesy call on Lecester Allen, owner of the Allen Entrepreneurial International Institute, at his Lithonia, Georgia, facility.
