Mark Melton Sworn in as Sheriff of Appling County
Kinda like passing the torch. Just as Lweis Parker did to Benny Deloach, Benny Deloach did for Mark Melton. A crowd of over a hundred people attended the ceremony including his family, many friends. After several speakers including his pastor, and former employers Superior Court Judge Stephen Kelley swore in Mark Melton as Sheriff of Appling County. It was quite an emotional moment for him an his family. Sheriff Melton will officially take office on January 1st.
