DAWSONVILLE – Dawson County Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Henson has announced that she is resigning after many years of service to the community.
“I’m going to help my husband with his real estate business and just see what the Lord has in store for me,” Henson said Wednesday.
“I’m going to miss everyone I worked with. We have all been like family. That is the hardest part of my decision, but I’m still going to be in Dawson County and they will too so we will stay in touch,” Henson added.
Henson has been in public service for a quarter of a century, first as a deputy in Forsyth County then as patrol supervisor with the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office. She also worked as Forsyth County Athletic Director before becoming Parks and Recreation Director.
Henson submitted her letter of resignation last week but said she would be willing to stay on until a replacement is found.
