Weathersby

After being gone from the local area for a few years, Gina Weathersby is returning to Coweta County to lead the Communities in Schools of Coweta program.

“Gina worked in several capacities over the years in Coweta County and had a positive impact on her employers and this community,” said Dennis McEntire, board chairman of the local Communities In Schools program and general manager for Newnan Utilities. “We are fortunate she was planning to move back as we began our search for a new leader for CIS.”

Weathersby lived in Coweta County for 18 years before relocating to serve as the executive director of the Institute for Family-Owned Business of Maine. While in Coweta, she held several executive positions with several local businesses and non-profit organizations.

While in Coweta previously, she helped organize and served as the executive director of the Keith Brooking Children’s Foundation, working with the NFL player who grew up in Senoia.

“To say that I am elated about my return to Coweta County doesn’t even begin to capture my excitement,” Weathersby said. “Communities In Schools of Coweta has a track record of helping at-risk youth achieve success, and I am proud to be working with such an outstanding organization.”

Her work as head of Communities in Schools of Coweta begins on May 5.
