ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

History was made in Warwick Tuesday night. Juanita Kinchen was sworn in as mayor.      She's the first woman and first African American to hold the office after defeating incumbent Alan Peacock in November.     

Folks who attended tonight's ceremony say they're proud of how far their city has come.

"In all my life probably never thought we would have a black female mayor but it's good to see her, and I think she will do a good job," said Frances Williams, event attendee.   

Kinchen's day job is a bookkeeper for Dooly County High School. Chris Wheeler was also sworn in as city councilman Tuesday night.
