Dawson County Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Henson turned in her resignation on Friday, signaling an end to a more than 25-year career with the county. Henson has been the director for 11 years. Prior to that she worked as athletic director and assistant parks director, coming from the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office. She had a 15-year career in law enforcement, working at the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office for 10 years before moving to Dawson. She worked as patrol supervisor and jail commander for five years, until she was married, and decided that two people in law enforcement wasn’t the best thing for raising a family.
