Ambassadors, Citizens of Georgia Power and
Georgia Power active employees recently teamed up
with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity to
work on a project at Tara Oaks Senior Living
Community in Riverdale. The sponsorship of five
single story, 2-bedroom attached homes gave an
opportunity to make a real difference in the
community and have a lasting impact on families
through our service. The build was a five week
effort that utilized fifty volunteers each day
including the families that will purchase the
homes. Shown below are pictures of the build and
members of the Metro South Ambassadors that
provided workers the entire five weeks.

Service is the rent that you pay for room on this
earth. Shirley Chisholm

First FFA director honored as he nears 100
T. D. (Dick) Brown, Metro East Ambassador, was
recently honored by Gov. Nathan Deal and the
Georgia Senate for his service in the field of
agriculture education. Brown helped build the
FFA Center, a six year project beginning in 1939,
and was director of the facility. In 1945, he
became the first state executive secretary of the
Future Farmers of America, a position he held
until 1960. From 1960 to 1974 he was assistant
state supervisor of agricultural education for
District IV. He is a member of the Georgia
Agriculture Education Hall of Fame. Deals
commendations states that Brown has played a
vital role in our states agricultural industry,
has been a perennial leader in the field, has
long held a deep, personal commitment to those in
agricultural education. The Georgia Senate also
recently passed a resolution in honor of Brown,
recognizing his effective, efficient, unselfish
and dedicated service to the state of Georgia
along with his significant organizational and
leadership talents, remarkable patience and
diplomacy, his keen sensitivity to the needs of
the citizens of this state. Brown will turn 100
on November 11. His secret to longevity?
Trying to live right, trying to live by the
Bible and trying to treat everybody right, he
said. His wife, Margaret, was a company employee
from 1966 until 1988.
Ultimately, the only way to experince the
richness of life is to live in an attitude of
gratitude to appreciate what you have and what
you can give. The best way to ensure your
happiness is to assist others in experiencing
their own. Anthony Robbins

Batton was leader in basketball
William Moe Batton was inducted as a member of
the ABAC Athletics Hall of Fame on March 3 at the
fifth annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony in
the Grand Lobby of ABAC Lakeside. He averaged 24
points per game at ABAC where he was a freshman
starter on the state and regional championship
team in 1949. The Montezuma native was captain
of the 1950 ABAC team and a unanimous all-state
selection. While at ABAC, Batton was also
selected Most Athletic, Friendliest, and Best
All-Around by the student body. He was also
named Mr. Baldwin. In 1950 Coach Bruce Gressett
wrote, Batton was one of the best athletes to
ever play at our college. He is a clean
Christian gentleman. In two seasons of
basketball, I never saw him pull a dirty trick.
I remember the closeness of that team, Batton
said of the 1949 ABAC squad. We all got along
really good. Coach Gressett was one of the best
men I have ever known. He was a fantastic
coach. Batton wound up working for the Georgia
Power Company for 33 years before his retirement.
He and his wife of 60 years, Betty Grace, have
lived in Columbus for the past 30 years.

Somewhere out there is a unique place for you to
help others a unique life role for you to fill

that lifts another person.
