The Pickens County Retired Educators Association (PCREA) held their March meeting on Wednesday, March 10th via Zoom, and the winner of the 36th Golden Deed Award was announced as Max Caylor.
Max Caylor with his big-hearted personality along with his love for people and his community made him the perfect candidate for the 36th Golden Deed Award. He is a Georgia native and earned degrees at Reinhardt University, Lagrange College and Emory University.
In 1972 he was ordained as a minister and served at Jasper United Methodist Church from 1984-1991. While pastoring at JUMC, he founded the Rotary Club of Jasper and served as chaplain for the Pickens High School football team and videographer for Pickens High School graduations.
In 2012 he retired after 39 years in the ministry. He lives in Pickens County with his family and currently serves as president of the Rotary Club and acts as chaplain for the fire department. Congratulations to Max Caylor. He will be honored and given a plaque at the May meeting of PCREA.
The next PCREA meeting via Zoom will be April 14th at 11:30 a.m. Our speakers will be Donnie Craig, Pickens County sheriff and D.J. Barker from Henssler Financial.
