Keep Statesboro-Bulloch County Beautiful recently welcomed another new advisory board member!
KSBB has a volunteer advisory board that is appointed by City Council every two years. There are currently six advisory board members for KSBB.
Eddie Lott, who has been a Bulloch County resident for 30 years, was recently appointed to serve. Georgia Southern brought Eddie to Statesboro in 1991 where he earned a B.S. in Psychology in 1995 and later an M.S. in Coaching. Eddie owned and operated a martial arts school for over two decades in Statesboro, selling it in 2016. He currently owns a small syrup manufacturing company.
Eddie and his family have been recycling for years. They are always looking for ways to reduce and reuse.
As a board member, Eddie looks forward to learning about and sharing ideas on how to promote recycling and to create a more sustainable environment.
