Danny is originally from Oglethorpe County. He has lived in Elbert County since April, 1978. Danny has over thirty years of experience working as a Park Manager. His longest term has been at Bobby Brown State Park where he served for nineteen years. He retired from DNR-Parks after six years of working at Richard B. Russell State Park. When Elbert County decided to lease the park from the state they contacted Danny and he agreed to help us with the operation of the park. During his leisure time he loves spending time with his family and friends. Danny said he would work with us for a couple of years. Well, that time was up July, 2017. He is still here and we hope (fingers crossed) that he stays with us for a few more years.
Judy Vaughn Office Assistant
Judy is a lifelong residents of Elbert County. She retired as County Clerk for Elbert County in March, 2015, after twenty-two years. Before working for the Elbert County Government, Judy worked for the Elbert County Board of Education for sixteen years as Secretary/Bookkeeper at Falling Creek School (now Elbert County Primary). When Elbert County took over the operations of Bobby Brown Park in July, 2015, Judy began working here part-time two days a week. She thought she would only be in this position for a year, but she, too, like Danny Burt, is still here. She really enjoys coming to the park, and the work she does. She has found that meeting people from other towns and states is really interesting. Bobby Brown has so many "repeat" campers that you get to know most of them by name. She is married to Bobby Vaughn, who is the maintenance assistant at Elbert Parks and Rec. They have two children, Lee Vaughn(Hope) and Lindsay Johnson (Clay), and six grandchildren - Lily, Levi, and Lucy and Thomas Johnson, Elizabeth, and Charlie Vaughn. Judy is an avid reader and love to walk. But for the most part, her family is her hobbies, her pastime, her everything!
Jack Bell Assistant Manager
Jack Bell is a lifelong resident of Elbert County. Jack began working with the Elbert County EMS in 1979, and went to school taking courses until he became a Paramedic. He continued as a paramedic until 1999. From 2000 to 2017, he was the Assistant Director of the Elbert County EMS and E-911. He retired in 2017, and began working part-time at Bobby Brown Park, where he does "any and everything". Jack is truly a "Jack of all Trades". We consider it a great benefit to be able to say that we have certified paramedic at Bobby Brown Park. Jack loves golf, hunting, and fishing. The fishing is a benefit for Jack on the park, as he is surrounded by water and plenty of fish. That is, if he can find the time to go! Jack is married to Lisa, and they reside on the park.
