Ward seeks re-election to Coweta school board

by Celia Shortt

Newnan attorney Graylin Ward is running for re-election to the post for District 4 of the Coweta County Board of Education.

Ward grew up in Coweta County and has been on the school board for six years. He and his four children attended school in the county. He and his wife, Lynette, have been married for more than 20 years.

“I believe in the district, in the community,” he said. “Since I’ve been involved, it’s been an exciting adventure and rewarding process.”

Ward said his “greatest enjoyment is serving the community,” and one way he gives back to the community is by serving on the school board.

On the school board, he said he works for the “common good for the people in the community.”

Ward is a longtime local attorney with an office on East Broad Street in Newnan. In addition to school board, he is involved in various church and community activities, as well as being a member of Newnan’s Downtown Development Authority.
