USATF Georgia mourns the loss of Art Carrington

With great sadness we share this information of one of our own of the USATF/GA officials community.
Arthur Carrington, known to most as Art, passed away early Friday morning, October 11, 2019 at home surrounded by family.
Art moved to North Carolina in 2015, but for years officiated as a member of the Georgia Association. He was a past member of the USATF/GA Officials Committee. Although he moved away, he would occasionally work the GA Tech meets to see and visit with his Georgia friends. Art for years was a driving force teaching, training, and mentoring officials and even some of our present starters.  He could work various other track & field events but decided in the 2000 season that the role of Starter was his calling. He was also a consultant and worked meets ranging from association to national levels of competition for years. He was a friend to so many and always had a smile and a kind word for all he met. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
