Newnan Continental Societies Inc. wins national award
The Newnan chapter of Continental Societies Inc. has received national recognition for a recent service project.

The project was a collaborative effort with Coweta County Middle Schools, Newnan Housing Authority, area churches and parents. Approximately 60 girls convened for a day of workshops focusing on preparing young ladies to become productive and successful adults.
Members of the Newnan chapter traveled to Houston, Texas, for the organization’s National Conclave in June. Representing were Toni White, president, and Melvinor Kendrick, Southeastern regional director. Competing against 48 chapters from around the country, Newnan placed third for its “Girls in the Middle” leadership academy in the area of employment development.
