Newnan welcomes new Main Street manager
by Clay Neely
Main Street Newnan has a new program manager, Courtney Collins.
Collins comes to Newnan with a background in historic preservation and a love for the “heart and soul” of downtown.
She finished her Master’s of Heritage Preservation in Historic Preservation from Georgia State University in May 2013, and her focus was in historic preservation planning. While in graduate school, she worked for the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation as a member of the Rhodes Hall event staff, and as an intern for the Development department.
Collins is a graduate of Georgia Southern University, where she earned a B.A in history. She is originally from Columbus, Ga. and a graduate of Harris County High School.
The enthusiasm that Collins has expressed towards Newnan’s Main Street program is something she hopes to share with the community. A “meet and greet” event with Collins will be held on Thursday, Aug. 29, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Newnan Carnegie Library. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
The event is open to the public and all are invited to attend. Members of the community are invited to stop by and welcome Collins. For more information about Main Street Newnan, its activities and initiatives, visit www.mainstreetnewnan.com .
