KTSCB Hires New Director, Rivers Alive Saturday

Keep Toccoa-Stephens County Beautiful has a new Executive Director.

According to KTSCB Board Member Tim Hale, Jeremiah Laird had to step down due to other obligations, though he remains on the board.

Hale said the new Executive Director is Linda Scofield.

He said she will do an excellent job.

“She brings a wonderful skill set to the table and I think she is on fire for this cause and it can be nothing but good for this community,” said Hale.

Scofield said she is excited to take on the task.

In particular, she said she is excited to get started with this week’s Rivers Alive cleanup in Stephens County.

Rivers Alive will take place on Saturday at 9 a.m. at Yonah Dam Park, on Yonah Dam Road near Yonah Dam in Stephens County.

Scofield said a lot will be going on during Saturday’s event.

“We will have tents with information, free breakfast, free lunch, activities, and I think everyone is going to have a great time,” said Scofield.

Rivers Alive is a joint effort between the Environmental Protection Division Outreach Programs and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Program.

Saturday’s Rivers Alive cleanup is expected to last through about 2 p.m.
