LEESBURG — Men like Jim Wright, who quietly but steadfastly do their work behind the scenes, typically toil in anonymity. It was especially gratifying, then, that the Lee County Code Enforcement Officer and Lee County Rivers Alive Coordinator was announced Tuesday as one the honorees of the Georgia Water Coalition’s annual “Clean 13.”

Each year the GWC honors 13 groups or individuals that have a positive impact on the protections and preservation of Georgia’s water resources. Wright was recognized for his long-time work on the Kinchafoonee and Muckalee creeks in Lee County.
