Post Date:01/09/2020 9:35 AM

Keep Roswell Beautiful (KRB) received the Governor’s Circle Recognition Award and the 2019 Bring One for the Chipper Award from the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation last month at the annual awards ceremony held at the Marriot Century Center in Atlanta. Each year, the foundation celebrates individuals, schools, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies striving to improve Georgia’s environment.

The Governor’s Circle Recognition Award recognizes organizations that conduct an annual litter index, calculate cost/benefit ratio, and engage volunteers to take greater responsibility for their communities. The Bring One for the Chipper Award is presented to the organization that collects the most trees per capita.

“I think I can speak for Keep Roswell Beautiful’s Board of Directors and volunteers when I say that we are proud to be making a tangible difference for the environment here in Roswell,” said Vicki Culbreth, Keep Roswell Beautiful Executive Director. “Our residents definitely show that they love and appreciate our green spaces and our river, and are willing to take ownership to protect them.”

The annual awards ceremony recognizes outstanding efforts in the areas of litter prevention, waste reduction and recycling, community beautification, and overall community improvement. Honorees include law enforcement officers, elected officials, students, volunteers, and two executive directors. The program also honors Georgia’s Keep America Beautiful affiliates for their comprehensive environmental impact on local communities. Since its founding in 1978, the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation’s network of affiliates has grown to encompass over 70 local programs serving 80% of the state’s population.
