A native of Atlanta, Lovette Russell  is committed to community service. Passionate about children’s causes, she currently serves on the boards of Zoo Atlanta, GEEARS (Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students), and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. 

Having chaired or co-chaired many of the city’s leading events, including the Mayor’s Masked Ball, the Atlanta History Center’s Swan House Ball, Zoo Atlanta’s The Beastly Feast, Park Pride’s 25th Anniversary Gala and the inaugural Grady Hospital Gala, she was named the 2012 Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. That same year, she received the 11Alive Boisfeuillet Jones Community Service Award and was named the Mary Caan Volunteer of the Year by the Lupus Foundation. Previously, both the YWCA of Greater Atlanta and Atlanta Woman Magazine recognized her as a Woman of Achievement. Lovette received the Trailblazer Award from the NAACP in 2013. Most recently, Lovette was honored by the naming of the emergency department at Hughes Spalding Hospital as the Lovette Twyman Russell Emergency Department.

A graduate of Spelman College, Lovette is an active alumna and currently serves on the College’s Board of Trustees. In addition, she chairs the Hughes Spalding Hospital Community Foundation and is a member of Buckhead Cascade City Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

An experienced triathlete, Lovette has completed a number of triathlon events, in addition to the Honolulu Marathon, and has trained groups of women and inner-city children to compete in triathlons.

Lovette is a senior consultant with Coxe Curry & Associates. In this role, she provides strategic consultation to nonprofits to strengthen their capacity in the critical areas of board development, volunteer engagement, and fundraising. Lovette and her husband, Michael Russell, CEO of H. J. Russell & Company, are the proud parents of two children—Michael, coordinator, Global Partnerships at National Basketball Association (NBA), and Benjamin, who completed his master’s at the University of South Carolina and is now a field engineer at H.

Maynard Smith Society
In 1953, Kiwanian and Past President Maynard Smith formed the Kiwanis Foundation of Atlanta Inc.  Since the Foundation gave its first grants in 1954, we have distributed $6.47 million to local non-profit organizations.  More than half of this, $3.8 million, has been distributed since 2006.  We honor Maynard Smith's legacy each year by honoring those members who distribute at least $1,000 to the Foundation's annual campaign as part of our Maynard Smith Society!  Thanks to those members who are part of the 2020 Maynard Smith Society ... and it is not too late to add your name to this list!  Make or increase your contribution to the Foundation today!

Are you having trouble receiving the KCA Bulletins and other email communications?  It appears that computer systems/servers who use Symantec are having trouble getting communications from our ClubRunner system delivered to their inboxes.  While we work on this issue with ClubRunner, I have an email list serve set up through Outlook to send the bulletins out each week to those who need it.  And if you are  having trouble receiving your quarterly bills, I can send them to you through QuickBooks.  Just email me at and I will add you to the list!
