Selena Jackson-Guines’ passion for children led to spending 30+ hours a week volunteering to help foster the children of Paulding County as a leader, mentor, coach, transporter, and friend.
Selena serves on the Paulding County Superintendent Advisory Board and as Chair of the Boys and Girls Club of Paulding County. She insists on a safe, healthy learning environment for the kids, building the board for ongoing outreach, encouraging community participation, and keeping the community engaged.
As a board member for the Local School Council, she helped create the STEAM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) and Coding Club, offering scholarships to inspired students. She pushed to enroll five Paulding County schools to apply state-certified standards for diversity and inclusion of minorities and girls.
Selena is a passionate leader on the Advisory Board for CTAE (Career Technical & Agricultural Education). Students are partnered with Fortune 100 companies to advance their careers—a bold step to educate a Georgia workforce with or without a college degree.
She founded and chairs Healing Je’ Ryan, a 501 (c)(3) for children who have experienced sexual trauma from assault or molestation. This non-profit offers emotional support groups, partners with child welfare services, and provides anxiety disorder therapy through field trips.
