Brown was appointed to complete a one-year unexpired term as the 6th District Director on the GSBA Board. As such, Brown will represent 12 counties and 14 school districts within the West Georgia region on the state-wide GSBA board.

“We are extremely pleased to have Mrs. Brown join our Board of Directors,” said GSBA Executive Director Sis Henry. “This is an important role and one that demands a high level of leadership.”

Brown’s appointment was announced at the Coweta County Board of Education meeting on Tuesday.

Brown has served on the Coweta County school board since 2005, representing Coweta’s 2nd district. She also served as chairman of the Coweta County Board of Education from 2011 to 2012.

Before her service on the Coweta school board, Brown taught music education for 26 years in the Coweta County School System, following two years of teaching in Floyd County schools. Brown also served in the Coweta school system’s central office during her career, and taught music for 16 years at Elm Street Elementary School, before retiring in 2004.

The mission of the Georgia School Boards Association is to ensure excellence in the governance of local school systems by providing leadership, advocacy and services, and by representing the collective resolve of Georgia’s 180 elected boards of education. GSBA has been serving local boards of education for more than 55 years.
