My family has been in Kennesaw since the 1830s. I have been here all my life except when I was away at school. I received my education from Kennesaw Elementary School, Georgia Military Academy, and North Georgia College. I presently serve on the Kennesaw Cemetery Committee, am a member of the Kennesaw Historical Society, and serve on The Kennesaw Museum Foundation. I am committed to preserving and telling the history of Kennesaw and the surrounding area. I am also a coauthor of the book "Images of America, Kennesaw".
