  • Penny Alligood - Administrative Assistant

    Penny Alligood graduated from Forest Park High School -- just south of Atlanta -- in 1993. After introductory positions at Jim Wood & Assoc. PR firm, the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce and The Colonnade newspaper at Georgia College in Milledgeville, she moved to Athens and pursued a BA in English Literature.
    The religion and philosophy courses were too tempting to resist, but Penny finally followed motherly advice and applied for and was offered a position at a statewide economic development magazine called Georgia Trend. So she was not, after all, destined for a career as a full time student. And she finally graduated from the University of Georgia summa cum laude in 1998.
    Working her way up from Editorial Assistant, Penny spent the majority of her 23-year-career in publishing as Georgia Trend magazine’s Creative Director. That role afforded her the opportunity to meet businesspeople, politicians and rising stars throughout Georgia. Penny managed the magazine design and production process, as well as, the freelance photographers and designers. She finally left the magazine business behind in December 2019 and moved from Atlanta to Moultrie.
    Penny’s family has deep roots in Colquitt County but this is her first opportunity to settle in Moultrie. With lots of family nearby and an ever-growing love for the community and the congregation of Moultrie First Presbyterian, Penny has found a new home in more ways than one.




  • Faye Brock - Church Hostess

    Faye has lived in Moultrie most of her life. She graduated from Moultrie High School and received a Masters of Education from Valdosta State College. She taught school in the Colquitt County School system for 30 years. After retiring she taught half days at Cox Elementary School for 7 years. Faye is married to Brady Brock, retired school administrator. They have two sons, Matthew and Jason. Faye believes that God allowed her to get the job at First Presbyterian Church because she feels that she has found a place where she can use God's gifts to her. She says that this is not a job, but a pleasure, because of the love and warmth from the staff and the congregation. Her responsibilities here are to plan the WATCH menus, oversee the preparation of the meals, and supervise the kitchen staff, nursery staff, and the housekeeping staff.
