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.

She works with other agencies and businesses to provide outreach to address environmental literacy and soil and water conservation by providing gardening education for youth, Master Gardener Extension Volunteers, and homeowners as well as professional education for urban agriculture and farmers. She serves with Keep Paulding Beautiful as an intersection of their goals and the goals of Paulding County Extension to address environmental literacy.

The Paulding community has been my home since 2000 when I moved from Marietta. I have been an active Master Gardener for twelve years and retired from teaching after 37 years, with the last seven at Hiram High School. I have worked with the board at KPB for the last year and a half and have thoroughly enjoyed their company and efforts to improve our county.

Paulding Chamber of Commerce
I have been with the Paulding Chamber of Commerce for over 12 years. I enjoy my job and am grateful for the opportunities it gives me to serve the community that I love; I take great pleasure in helping others. Paulding is a wonderful place to live and play. I was raised to make where you are better than the way you found it, respect the earth and all she gives. Keep Paulding Beautiful helps me fulfill this mission so dear to my heart. Paulding County is where I raised my family and where I am raising my granddaughter. My hopes are that the next generation will enjoy what we have and repeat what we do by giving back and keeping their community beautiful.
