The Newnan Utilities logo on the Bullsboro Drive water tower was replaced with Newnan High School’s logo earlier this week. 


The Newnan Utilities Bullsboro Drive water tower has a new paint job, one which honors Newnan High School and shows everyone that Newnan is “Cougar Country.”

“Newnan High was the only Coweta County high school not to have its school logo and colors on a water tank,” said Dennis McEntire, general manager of Newnan Utilities. “They are our down-the-street neighbors, and we are excited about this opportunity to give the students, staff and administrators at Newnan High this well-deserved recognition. We have always been huge supporters of our local schools, and this is just another way to show it.”

The Newnan Utilities logo was replaced by a large letter “N” painted in navy blue and outlined in gold, Newnan’s colors. Its mascot is the cougar.

“This water tower, painted with the Newnan High School logo, will stand as a prominent marker within our community, reflecting the pride and the traditions of excellence that have been represented by Newnan Utilities and by Newnan High School for many years,” said Dr. Steve Barker, superintendent of the schools in Coweta County.

“Newnan Utilities has a longstanding relationship with the Coweta County School System as a partner and a friend,” he added. “The Newnan Cougar family appreciates this meaningful investment by Newnan Utilities.”

For McEntire, this paint job reflects Newnan Utilities’ commitment to its community as well as its customers.

“Our people work hard every day to provide top quality power and water services to Newnan Utilities customers,” he said, “but we never stop looking for ways to make life better for everyone in the community we serve. We are thankful for this opportunity.”

He also said it levels the local water tank playing field, as both East Coweta High School and Northgate High School have water towers in the county showcasing their school colors and logos.

The Bullsboro water tower is repainted every eight years on a maintenance schedule.
