MILLEDGEVILLE — The Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce, educators, students and area supporters celebrated the opening of the Baldwin High School GIVES Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday. 

Located in the Baldwin College & Career Academy, Baldwin GIVES is the second satellite center of the Georgia College GIVES (Georgia College Involved in Volunteer Efforts).
