Quitman - As CEO of Presbyterian Homes of Georgia and a lifetime resident of Quitman, Dr. Frank McElroy is an integral part of the Brooks County community.

"I love Brooks County," said I think its a wonderful place to live and grow and that's why I've lived and worked here for all my life."

Concern for the well being of the home's residents, as well as the future of his hometown, are just a few of the many qualities that make Dr. McElroy an ideal selection for Brooks County's Gold Star lifetime achievement award.

"We don't necessarily give this award every year, just when we think someone's truly done something to deserve it and that's definitely what's happened in this case," said Janie Jones, Chamber of Commerce Director.

Many of the Presbyterian Home's residents have known Dr. McElroy since his father started the facility and he was just the lawn boy. They say they couldn't be prouder of his accomplishments.

"He is a wonderful man and deserves all the recognition that comes with this award," said Virginia Upson, Presbyterian Home Resident.

Although the Gold Star Award is one of Dr. McElroy's greatest honors, he says the true achievement is making a difference in the lives of the Presbyterian Home residents.
