Two new members have been appointed to the board of the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.
Commissioner Avery Niles Friday confirmed the appointments of Fred E. Stephens and Dick Yarbrough to the Georgia Board of Juvenile Justice.
Juvenile Justice Department spokesman Jim Shuler says Yarbrough is a newspaper columnist and a retired vice president of BellSouth Corp. He also served as managing director of the 1996 Olympic Games.
Fred Stephens currently serves as assistant chief of police field operations for the Athens-Clarke County Police Department and is a former GBI agent.
Both were appointed to the 15-member board by Gov. Nathan Deal. The board's member's represent each of the state's Congressional districts.
