Lynn Lovett is one of those rare people who upon being given a responsibility, runs with it to the maximum and beyond. Her Area Manager role with Georgia Power has afforded her the ability to be active in her community in many ways. We are so grateful that she chose RCPCH years ago. RCPCH would not be in the strong position we are in today if not for her leadership and hard work.
The first role Lynn had with RCPCH was as a board member. Then followed 12 years of leadership, including becoming President less than 2 years after she joined the board. She then went on to serve as President for 4 years and then remained on the board as Past President. During her 12 years of service, Lynn also contributed as Chair of the Champions of Hope Sporting Clays Tournament for 7 events. In her role as a board member, Lynn saw the agency through some of its most challenging times, personally seeing the organization through issues such as low cash flow, serious employee issues, and physical problems at the shelter. She was a hands-on fighter, advocate, and contributor for and to this organization.
Lynn’s most recent gifts to RCPCH were her time and efforts as Chair of the Capital Campaign for the RCPCH Administrative and Adult Victims’ Services Building. The 11K square foot building built in 2019 and completed in early 2020 would probably not be here if not for her. Lynn worked a lot of hours to pursue funding for this new facility and was on the site as much as possible to oversee the finishing touches required. She bargained for funds, she made deals for furnishings, she swept the floors. She made it happen. To honor her for this contribution, the Lynn Lovett Conference Room of the building will forever recognize her efforts.
Another way to honor Lynn is by giving a gift in her name and support our July 2021 Annual Campaign. You can donate in Lynn’s honor through Venmo (our username is @ruthscottagethepatticakehouse), online (https://stopthehurtga.org/donations/), or mail a check to PO Box 2727, Tifton, GA 31793.
