The coordinator for Dawson County Treatment Court was recently appointed to serve on the state's Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapists.

Gov. Nathan Deal appointed Robert "Bob" C. King to the 10-member regulatory practice board in November.

Charged with protecting the health, safety and welfare of the people of Georgia, the board enforces education and training requirements established by law for licensure in each profession.

"It's quite an honor and validation to be asked by the governor to serve on this important board," King said.

A licensed clinical social worker in Florida and Georgia, King is active in the counseling profession at the state and national level, continuously presenting at the Georgia Drug, Driving Under the Influence and Mental Health Court Conference, as well as the National Association of Drug Court Professionals.

He's also passionate about his work with the treatment court, which has had 47 graduates in the drug court division and 70 participates complete the DUI track since its creation in 2006.

Northeastern Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Jason Deal presides over the hybrid court.

"Bob is the backbone of the Dawson County Treatment Court. He is passionate about the drug court model and I'm excited that he will bring that vision, experience, and passion to the board," Judge Deal said.

King attended the State University of New York where he received a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in social work from Barry University.

He and his wife, Lauren, have one daughter, Grace. The family lives in Dahlonega.

The board meets monthly in Macon.
