The North Florida District becomes the Gulf Atlantic District on June 29 to more accurately describe its territory which merged with the South Georgia District two years ago.
The district encompasses a large portion of northern Florida, south and central Georgia, and a small portion of western South Carolina. The Florida portion of the district has been known as the North Florida District for more than 20 years, but the name did not accurately reflect the district’s expanded geographical area. North Florida District Manager Charley Miller recently issued a challenge for district employees to offer suggestions as an opportunity to embrace the district from the Atlantic to the Gulf, from beaches to peaches and from the Carolina Wren to the Mockingbird. Employees responded with many creative names and they explained in detail why their suggestions would resonate throughout the district.
The many thoughtful selections showed the pride employees have in this district. More than 200 submissions were received, and the winning suggestion was to change the name from North Florida (NFL) to the Gulf Atlantic District (GFA). This name fits the territory as the Gulf Coastal plain encompasses portions of Georgia and Florida while the Atlantic Coastal name covers portions of South Carolina, southeastern Georgia and northeastern Florida.
The district includes these major cities: in Florida—Gainesville, Jacksonville, Panama City, Pensacola and Tallahassee; and in Georgia—Albany, Augusta, Columbus, Macon and Savannah. The district includes ZIP Codes beginning with the following first three digits: Florida--320, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326 and 344; Georgia—304, 308, 309, 310, 312, 313, 314, 315, 316, 317, 318, 319 and 398; and 298 in South Carolina.
