Dacula Mayor Trey King’s day job is teaching chemistry at Collins Hill High

Dacula Mayor Trey King was like a celebrity to members of Fort Daniels Elementary School’s LEGO League Club when he visited the students in the elementary school’s media center after school.

Students — mostly fourth and fifth graders — said he was the most famous person they’d met. King seemed humbled at the thought. It’s perhaps something he’s still getting used to roughly six month into his role as the east Gwinnett County city’s mayor. King came to Fort Daniel Elementary School from his day job as a chemistry teacher at Collins Hill High School.
