Special Projects Coordinator
Approaching her 50th birthday, Erica Speed realized it was a good time to get back involved in preservation. Her earliest volunteer work was on the “Save this Hunk of Junk” campaign for Atlanta Preservation. Her desire is to not have the same campaign launched for her but for any other of the many worthy historic properties in the state of Mississippi. Erica is focusing her considerable talents on the restoration and reuse of the Lowry House in Jackson.
