Keep Newnan Beautiful Receives Governor’s Circle Recognition

Keep Newnan Beautiful recently received a 2023 Governor’s Circle Award for its outstanding achievements in community beautification and environmental sustainability. The Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation (KGBF) presented the award to Keep Newnan Beautiful Director Page Beckwith in recognition of exemplary performance in litter reduction, waste minimization, and community greening. To qualify for the Governor’s Circle Award, affiliates must be certified and in good standing with Keep America Beautiful (KAB), the national nonprofit that oversees state and local programming. Additionally, the affiliate must be an active member of the KGBF network. Certified KAB affiliates are required to effect meaningful, positive, and lasting change by directly addressing community needs in the areas of litter prevention, recycling, waste reduction, and beautification.

Mayor Brady shared, “We are proud of the excellent services Page provides our community as she leads the Keep Newnan Beautiful program. The work she does greatly impacts the quality of life we enjoy here in the city and will help keep our community a wonderful place for generations to come. From litter clean up in local streams, to hosting paper shredding and electronic recycling events, Keep Newnan Beautiful is leading the way in caring for our local environment.” Keep Newnan Beautiful’s mission is to educate, motivate and empower the citizens of Newnan to take responsibility for improving the local community environment through litter prevention, beautification and waste reduction. Ms. Beckwith’s work includes speaking to many community groups including elementary school students, Scouts, neighborhood HOA’s, church groups and local realtors.

“We believe everyone deserves to live in a clean, green, and beautiful environment,” said Natalie Johnston-Russell, executive director of the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation. “The recipients of this award have made a tremendous effort to achieve that vision, and we’re thrilled to recognize their achievements.”
