Annual Hubbard Celebration Banquet

April 14, 2023 at 7:00pm
Location: William Hubbard Complex, 500 GA 83 Forsyth, GA 31029
Speaker Michael L. Thurmond, CEO of DeKalb County, GA
Description: HAA is asking other Hubbard classes to host future banquets.
The ticket cost is $40 per person.
Please make checks payable to Hubbard Alumni Association.

Michael L. Thurmond won a 2016 landslide victory to become chief executive officer of Dekalb County, one of the most diverse counties in the Southeast. Since his Jan. 1, 2017 swearing-in, Thurmond’s primary mission is restoring trust in county government. His other priorities include adopting a balanced budget, ensuring accurate water bills, removing blight, offering summer youth employment, improving employee compensation, and fulfilling the federal/state sewer consent agreement.

Thurmond, a former member of the Georgia General Assembly and the first African-American elected to a statewide office without prior appointment, is widely regarded as a “turnaround expert” after fundamentally transforming the culture and enhancing operations of complex organizations such as the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, the Georgia Department of Labor, and the DeKalb County School District.

Thurmond was raised as a sharecropper’s son in Clarke County, Georgia. He graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and religion from Paine College and later earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina’s School of Law. He also completed the Political Executives program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
