KPB Board of Directors

Jud Sewell- President



Jud Sewell, Board President.

Director of Operations: Transportation and Logistics.

I made Paulding County my home after moving from California 20 years ago.  I feel it is important to be actively involved in the community in which you live.  I have been on the Keep Paulding Beautiful Board since 2011.  

Our Board is a small but dedicated group of citizens that help educate our community on the importance of keeping Paulding clean from all forms of litter and other types of contamination that may threaten our quality of life here in Paulding County. 

By working together with our citizens, local businesses, our cities and county government, Keeping Paulding Beautiful will help keep the area where we live something we can all be proud of.

Nancy Hightower- Vice President

I am interested in "being kind to Mother Earth" and helping to keep the environment I live in as clean and healthy as possible. Keep Paulding Beautiful is a great organization to help me be involved in activities and efforts to meet that goal.
