In 2014, Dr. Ware was named a Redmond Frist Humanitarian Award winner for his humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work. He was recognized as a physician known throughout Redmond for his outstanding clinical skills as well as for his compassionate, kind, and humble ways. The award also recognized his humanitarian efforts that extend beyond his patients. Dr. Ware is a conservationist of land and wildlife, and he gives generously to those who are in need of help.
Jason Winters is a graduate of Chattooga High School. He attended Berry College where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. After graduating from Berry, he worked at his family’s business, Bankson Oil Company, in Summerville. Winters has been Chattooga County’s sole Commissioner since 2008.

Winters holds many leadership positions in the northwest Georgia area. He is a member and former president of the Summerville-Trion Rotary Club, a member and former chairman of the Chattooga County Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Summerville-Trion Optimist Club.
