  • Welcome to Upson County! Welcome to Upson County!

    On behalf of the Thomaston-Upson Chamber of Commerce, it is our pleasure to introduce you to our community and to some of our Annual Traditions that run deep in Upson County!

    From frying up Chitterlings at the Annual Chitlin’ Hoedown in October, to celebrating the opening of Christmas Lane in December, we believe in our history and heritage and enjoy passing it down to future generations.

    A great location offering recreation, affordable housing options, impressive educational options, and various career opportunities, help to make Upson County an attractive choice for visitors thinking of relocating.

    Our community offers the best in small-town living, something more and more people consider imperative in their residency requirements.

    The Youth Leadership Upson Program is sanctioned by the Chamber and sponsored by Upson EMC, TenCate Protective Fabrics and Upson-Lee High School. Students must fill out an application form and have two references/recommendations submitted before they are considered for the program.

    The mission of YOUTH LEADERSHIP UPSON is to expose selected high school students exhibiting leadership traits to the business, political and civic working of our community.

    This group is made up of seniors, juniors and sophomores that are residents of Upson County and who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills in their school, church and community.  Each student is selected for a one-year school term and to successfully complete the program, a student must attend each scheduled class.

    The Thomaston-Upson Chamber of Commerce and Upson EMC are pleased that the following students are involved in Youth Leadership Upson Class for the 2017-2018 school year: Averi Caldwell, Eli Eubanks, Savannah Gregg, Macy Huckaby, Caroline Irvin, Cace Kilby, Cade Kilby, Hayden Marks, Hayden Mullins, McKenzie Smith, Micah Smith, Bickley Reeves and Lillie Waters.
