HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, DEC. 20, 2001 Page S-A Holidays heckin aroun r anott he pacl I Classroom Named for Nookie Meadows The Roosevelt Warm Springs Development Fund hon- ored its chairman emeritus, Leonard R. "Nookie" Meadows of nearby Manchester, on Friday, December 14, naming the classroom in Georgia Hall in his honor - Meadows Classroom. A commissioned, full-color portrait of Meadows. 75, who founded and chaired the Development Fund Board of Directors from 1986-1992, now adorns the multi-pur- pose classroom. James Joseph Woods of Atlanta was the artist. With his family, invited friends, Georgia Hall Society donors, RWSIR personnel and other board members in attendance, Meadows' portrait was unveiled at a noon reception. It honors a man who has a lifetime invested in his com- munity. The president of Meadows Companies, which encom- passes five different Manchester businesses, Meadows was a state representative from 1987 92, an 18-year mem- ber of the Manchester School Board (1962-80) and a char- ter member of the Manchester Certified City Task Force (1976). In addition, he chaired fund-raising efforts for the Pine Mountain Regional Library, Meriwether County Health Center and Manchester Senior Citizens Bus. A former member of the Columbus Bank and Trust Advisory Board, he was also treasurer of the Manchester Industrial Board and a longtime member of both the Meriwether Chamber of Commerce and Manchester Development authority. The 1979 recipient of the Manchester Community Service Award and 2001 James T. Evans Rotary Award, he is a past president of both the Manchester Kiwanis Club (twice) and Manchester Jaycees. He is a member of the Georgia State University Foundation Fund, a highly decorated member of the National Automobile Dealers Association, an Honorary Georgia State Trooper and a Delta Airlines Flying Colonel. A native of Manchester and a 1944 graduate of Manchester High School, Meadows is married to the for- mer Alexa Corley of Manchester and he has four daugh- ters, Penny Hale, Piper Gresham and Robin McInvale, all of Manchester, and Ginger Stribling of Macon. In announcing the honor, RWSIR Executive Director Frank Ruzycki said, "When I took this job, I quickly learned that the first and foremost person I needed to go to in this community was Leonard Meadows. Nookie responded to me the way he always responded whenever there was a need in the Manchester/Warm Springs area." At the same time, the man who followed Meadows as RWS Development Fund Board Chairman, Bruce W'flliams, added, "You have no idea what it's like to follow someone like Nookie Meadows. Without his dedication, we (the Institute) wouldn't have any of this (what it is today)." State Representative Carl Von Epps also read a procla- mation from the Georgia House of Representatives rec- ognizing the 14th as Leonard "Nookie" Meadows Day in Georgia.
