Carol Moore, who has served as executive director of The Newnan Centre since, well, there was a Newnan Centre, is exiting stage left after 11 years at the helm. She said she plans to “hang around” Newnan. We want to thank her for making the Centre one of the crown jewels for the city of Newnan. Taking her place, whom Carol calls her “mini me,” is Newnan native Peyton Shelnutt, who has worked with Carol for several years. We wish Peyton continued success.
