Cordele, Ga is a small town with big dreams. Growing up in Cordele wasn't anything spectacular, but it was and still is home. Nothing huge ever happened in Cordele, but still to this day something draws me back every so often. It's not the new Chick fil a or Japanese restaurants, and it's not raging parties because like I said, it's a small town and nothing huge happens here. The things that stand out in Cordele that keeps drawing me back home is the community. Every time I come home, I get off the exit and the high school is right there. I always think about my favorite memories of playing sports and missing all of my teammates. Then a mile down the road is where I worked throughout high school, and where I fell in love with the idea and dream of becoming a physical therapist. As I pass through town and make my way home, I realize I love Cordele because of the people I put myself around. Cordele has amazing people that are determined to help anyone they can.

Cordele is a nice place for family and friends but has many problems attached. Seeing growth in job opportunities would be great along with future development in housing and expanding cordele.crime rate has went down and it helps for showing others a safe community. School system is great for other communities surrounding cordele.
Even though Cordele is a small town in Georgia, it is home. We may not have a lot of new restaurants or places to shop that you find in big cities. But in the past years Cordele has been through a lot of developments.
