Diana Preston honored by Lilburn City Council

Former Mayor Preston honored

The City of Lilburn honored one of its finest public servants on Monday. Diana Preston has devoted herself to the betterment of the Lilburn community, serving as the city's first female mayor from 2008-2011, a city council member for 22 years, and currently as executive director of the Lilburn Community Partnership nonprofit. 

Council presented Preston with a proclamation and a glass "Lilburn Lily" with the following inscription: "Thank you for your dedication to creating a safe, vibrant, and prosperous community." The glass sculpture was created by world-renowned artist Hung Nguyen, whose studio, MC Glass Art, is located on Rockbridge Road in Lilburn.
