CUMMING, Ga. — At their July 3 meeting, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners recognized the retiring director of the Parks and Recreation Department for his years of service for Forsyth County. After 29 years with Forsyth County Parks and Recreation, Jerry Kinsey retired from his position as director.
Kinsey's contributions include the Miracle League Field and universal playground, the Big Creek Greenway, a skate park and three recreation centers. The Georgia Recreation and Parks Association twice recognized Kinsey as the Distinguished Professional Administrator of the Year.
