The Extension Welcomes Three New Board Members

Three new Board members, Daniel Johnson, Peter Tennis and Tracy Lawhorn were elected at the July Board of Directors meeting to three year terms. We’re excited to have Daniel, Peter and Tracy join the Board, as they strive to help raise funds, provide program and financial oversight and fulfill the important duties of the Board of Directors.

Daniel Johnson is a husband and father of one beautiful girl and five amazing young men.  He is a full time employee at Kennestone Regional Medical center working in Health Information Management.  He is also a full time student at Kennesaw State University where he will graduate with his B.S. in Political Science and a minor in legal studies in 2016.  He recently graduated as the top political science major at Georgia Highlands College where he was also named to the All-State Academic team, finalist for the All-USA Academic Team, as well as a member of Phi Theta Kappa.  He plans on attending Georgia State University College of Law to earn his Juris Doctorate in law immediately after graduation from Kennesaw State University.  He enjoys spending time with his family as well as playing golf and weight lifting.  He loves to spend time at the Extension as well, helping out wherever he can be used.

Peter Tennis is an advocate for tenants and business owners alike. He is the go-to man whenever a renewal or relocation of your business lease is necessary, as well as when you’re dealing with developers for facilities to be built and subsequently leased. Peter has substantial experience in the commercial real estate business and considerable knowledge of the Atlanta market.

Tracy Lawhorn was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia.  She has been a volunteer at The Extension for two years and also worked as a volunteer at the Hartmann Center—a mandated treatment program for adolescents. She completed training with the Georgia Counsel on Substance Abuse (GCSA) and is a certified CARES.  She was previously employed at Mary Hall Freedom House, a residential treatment for women and children, and is currently a Clinical Assistant at Ridgeview Institute for the Older Adult Program. Tracy is in the process of becoming a Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC).

We are excited to have Daniel, Peter and Tracy as Board members, as the organization continues to grow and prosper.
