The Rockdale Coalition for Children & Families (RCCF) is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation. RCCF was established in August 1996 by a resolution from the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners as part of the State of Georgia’s Family Connection initiative under then Governor Zell Miller. Randy Poynter was the Chairman of Rockdale County Board of Commissioners, and John K. Morgan, CEO of Acuity Brands, served as the first Chairman of the Rockdale Coalition Board of Directors. John was instrumental in helping to establish the Coalition, and due to his generosity, the Coalition awards the annual John K. Morgan Community Service Scholarship to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding community service. From 1999 to 2009, Bill Hughey served as the Executive Director of the Coalition. Under Bill’s leadership, the Coalition became a well established and respected Rockdale entity, funneling millions of dollars for the benefit of families & children in the Rockdale community. In his honor, each year the Coalition awards the F. William Hughey Community Service Award to a worthy recipient who has demonstrated collaborative community service in the Rockdale community.
