Thornton Kennedy is a longtime local journalist, public relations professional and small business owner. He got his start in journalism while attending Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C., where he worked on the copy desk of the Gaston Gazette. When he got back to Atlanta after earning a degree in English literature, he took a job with the Marietta Daily Journal before jumping to the Northside Neighbor, where he was the editor for five years. Most recently he served as an editor with the Atlanta Business Chronicle. For more than a decade now, he has been writing a weekly column in the Northside Neighbor. In 2009, he launched PR South, a boutique public relations firm focused on real estate, financial & professional services and non-profits.

He is a sixth generation Atlantan on both his mother’s and his father’s sides of his family. He was born and raised in Buckhead, and he and his wife Lori raised their family there. Their daughter is a Freshman at the College of Charleston and their son is a Junior at the University of Maryland. Most weekends you can find him hiking along the bank of the Chattahoochee River on land that had been in his family for several generations before becoming a core piece of the national recreation area. 

He is civically active, having served on the executive committee of the Atlanta Humane Society and on the boards of the Atlanta Preservation Center and the Georgia board of the Trust for Public Land. He is a past-president of the Snake Nation Social Club, a young members guild of the Atlanta History Center, and still volunteers there. He currently serves on the boards of the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta, Buckhead Heritage, the Atlanta Music Festival Association and the Easterling-Hallman Foundation, which supports the University of South Carolina library.

KCA Weekly Meeting Registration due on Thursdays at Noon
The deadline to submit your reservation to attend the weekly meeting is now Thursday at Noon.  The Loudermilk Center caterers need to order our food on Fridays for delivery early the next week.  So we don't have the ability to get additional food at the last minute.  If you don't have a reservation, you are welcome to attend the meeting, but must wait until after the meeting starts to see if there is food remaining.  Thanks for your help with this.
KCA Lunch Cancellation Policy
The KCA Weekly Luncheon meetings are the best place to come, hear our fabulous speakers, enjoy fellowship and a fabulous lunch.  Starting in November, our food service will again be provided by the Loudermilk Center catering department, so no more bringing in bags of meals, plates, etc.!  However, with this change we must have a firm reservation count by the Friday noon prior to the meeting.  So last minute add ons will be more difficult.  This also means that when you do make a reservation and do not attend, we have left over food that we must pay for.
Cancellation Policy: The board of directors approved a policy to begin charging all members that have a reservation, but do not attend, the cost of their meal.  Please be sure that you both make your reservation to attend, or cancel one that you may have, by Noon on the Friday prior to the luncheon!  If you currently are on the auto registration list, but are not attending regularly, please email me so that I can remove your name and you can sign up for the meetings you can attend.  And if you are attending regularly, consider adding your name to the auto registration list so that you don't have to worry about it!
Thanks for your attention to this!
Automatic In Person Attendance Registration Available!
Are you attending the KCA weekly meetings in person all the time and want to skip the registration process?  Just email Karen at and have your name added to the automatic attendance list.  Easy Peasy.  All we ask is that you let us know when you ARE NOT going to be there so we don't have extra food ordered.  Add your name to the list today and we will see you on Tuesday, Jan 4th!
