CUMMING — Besides Kevin Smith’s recognition from the Adopt-A-Stream program, all staff and board members of the Keep Forsyth County Beautiful program were recently honored by Gov. Nathan Deal.
Since becoming an affiliate of Keep American Beautiful 20 years ago, the local organization that promotes environmental awareness and action among Forsyth residents has consistently earned recognition in the KAB President’s Circle.
“There is a certain list of requirements that have to be met every year to be in the President’s Circle,” Smith said. “We’ve met those requirements every year for the past 20 years.”
In addition to the President’ Circle recognition, the program also received the Governor’s Circle Award this year for being among the top affiliates in the state.
Pete Amos, chairman of the Forsyth County commission, praised the organization during a meeting June 19 in which it was formally honored.
“Each year, KFCB continues to enhance the health, safety and economic viability of Forsyth County by empowering hundreds of local volunteers to take greater responsibility for litter prevention and cleanup, recycling, water quality and other forms of beautification,” Amos said.
