In October of 2016 Clayton County Parks and Recreation was recognized at the National Parks & Recreation Conference as being a Nationally Accredited Agency. Great job to everyone for their hard work in making this a great place to live, work and play. Your dedication to your job makes a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for all that you do throughout the year.

EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR Bruce Tilly This individual’s desire to serve his community is something special. Not a soul in this facility does not know him. Over the years he has developed a relationship with constituents that is genuine. He treats the recreation center as his own, and has made it home. The integrity of our facility would be nothing without his assistance. His work performance never diminishes despite any circumstance. Nor has he complained about the lack of help or assistance. His work is impeccable and never needs validation. He has made a difference in this facility, this department, and in the lives of others.

Javier Woods

Program Coordinator Virginia Burton Gray Recreation Center

Mr. Woods started as a Program Coordinator at Virginia Burton Gray in February of 2016, after working as a Gym Coordinator for two years at Carl Rhodenizer Recreation Center. Javier, who goes by “Jay”, is originally from East Point where he played basketball and frequented his local Recreation Center. As a kid Jay fell in love with Recreation and went on to pursue a degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation. One interesting fact about Jay is has had dreadlocks for nine years and hasn’t had a haircut in over ten years. Jay lives by the quote “Everything happens for a reason” and that reason has lead him to Clayton County Parks and Recreation.
