Many will recognize Katie as the project leader of the "They Were Here" Macedonia Cemetery student documentaries, a collaboration of Mercer University, Student Leadership Johns Creek, and the Johns Creek Historical Society. We welcome Katie's experience, energy, connections to experts in history and preservation, and Millennial's perspective she brings to the board.

At present, Nicole is focusing her skills to make a difference in the City with membership and leadership positions in a variety of organizations including the Johns Creek-North Rotary, Leadership Johns Creek, her HOA, Johns Creek Cricket Association, the Legacy Cultural Arts Center Task Force, Impact Johns Creek, among others. We welcome Nicole's business and nonprofit leadership experience and ability to create connections between the historical society and activities of other community groups.
