Introducing New Georgia WAND Community Organizer Staff Members!

Natalie HerringtonGeorgia WAND is excited and proud to welcome Natalie Q. Herrington and Janie Hill Scott onto the staff. Natalie and Janie started on Monday, May 8 in twin roles as community organizers in Shell Bluff, Burke County, Georgia. They will unite forces with Georgia WAND working to educate and mobilize local residents around opportunities to advance environmental justice and water protection, nuclear harm reduction, sustainable/green jobs, civic engagement, and the revitalization of the Shell Bluff community.

Natalie is a native of Burke County.  As a youth, she has been involved in political campaigns, grassroots efforts & community outreach.  As a result of these experiences, Natalie attained a B.S. in Public Relations and a Master of Science in Public Administration from Georgia Southern University.  Whether it’s providing resume writing assistance, assistance applying for employment, assistance locating resources, etc., she can be found serving her community in a number of ways on any given day.  Some of the annual community outreach events she’s involved with included: The Last Day of School Block Party, The Back to School Block Party and a Thanksgiving Outreach.  She believes she has been created to serve as a voice for those who feel they don’t have a voice.

She received a Bachelor’s of Business Administration with an emphasis on Marketing from Augusta State University in Augusta, Georgia.
