PNH Volunteer Spotlight – Rusty Knorr


Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 16-22, and Piedmont Newnan Hospital would like to spotlight a few of its hospital volunteers.

PNH thanks all of its volunteers for all they do to make a positive difference in every life they touch, especially the lives of our employees, physicians, patients and visitors. The first volunteer spotlight will be Rusty Knorr.

RUSTY KNORR – Hospital Front Desk

Rusty Knorr has been a volunteer at the main hospital front desk at Piedmont Newnan for nine years starting in 2014. He assists patients, visitors, and staff.

Prior to retiring, he served as a teacher, principal, Director of Operations, Central Office Administrator and Assistant Superintendent in public K-12 education for 43 years (33 in Alabama and 10 in Georgia). He grew up in Montgomery, Alabama, and has lived in Troy, Ala., Opelika, Ala., Eufaula, Ala., and Newnan.

His latest obsession is pickleball.

“My favorite part about being a hospital volunteer is meeting people and giving back to the community and our hospital,” said Knorr.
