2022 Governor's Environmental Address Rescheduled to August 12 in Georgia
Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful to Welcome Governor Brian Kemp Back to the Environmental Address Podium at Gas South District Convention Center After Two-Year Hiatus

"COVID1-19 derailed many of our plans over the last two years, so we are thrilled, honored and hopeful to welcome Governor Kemp back to our podium," said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful. "During his first Environmental Address appearance in 2019, he had a very optimistic outlook for the state – both economically and environmentally. Governor Kemp holds a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Georgia and was raised to believe that nature and everything in it are gifts from God. During his first speech, he made clear that the environment is an important matter to him, and he's proving that fact with measures like his proposed program to connect farmers with families in need to battle food insecurity and reduce food waste. It's a little like our own in-school Food Waste Warrior program on a state-wide scale. Governor Kemp was a big hit with our crowd two and a half years ago, so – barring any emergencies – we look forward to learning what he has to say about Georgia and the state of our environment when he joins us in August."
The 2022 Governor's Environmental Address will include the presentation of scholarships to Georgia Gwinnett College students, as well as Environmental Consciousness and Stewardship (ECoS) Awards to five worthy individuals, companies and organizations.
