Liz Corbett - Liz moved to the High Point area in 1988.  She and her husband Peter raised three sons in the neighborhood and, because of the wonderful people and environment they found here, are now living in their third High Point house.  Liz is a former software developer and, as a runner and tennis player, values the natural beauty and recreational opportunities available in and around High Point.  She joined the board in the winter of 2017 believing that strong, active communities can alleviate many of the problems we face in these times.
Immediate Past President

Brittany Charron - Brittany and her husband, John, have lived in the neighborhood since 2000.  Both of their daughters loved High Point Elementary (as did their parents).  Brittany is enjoying the next stage of her daughters' educational careers by volunteering at Ridgeview Charter Middle School and Riverwood High School.  Since she is a former middle school teacher with Fulton County Schools, Brittany enjoys discussing all things education and appreciates the opportunity to be involved with our neighborhood schools and civic organization.  Brittany brings a high level of enthusiasm for our public schools and a great positive attitude to our board and, therefore, to our neighborhood.
