Marietta, Georgia, July 26, 2021 – Life University (Life U) Board of Trustees member Fitz Johnson was appointed on Wednesday to a newly-vacant seat on the Georgia Public Service Commission by Governor Brian Kemp. According to the AJC, Kemp said he was drawn to Johnson because of his “remarkable record of service to our nation, experience as a private sector business leader, and dedication to his community.”

“Fitz, who was elected to the Board in October 2020, has a wealth of experience in various fields and with that brings invaluable knowledge and insight to the Board,” noted Life U President Dr. Rob Scott.

“We are proud to have Mr. Johnson as a Trustee, as his experience and skill set brings balance to the Board,” remarked Life U Board Chairman Dr. Kevin Fogarty. “I am confident he will serve the State of Georgia well in his new appointment.”
