About Dr. Sonny Proctor

Dr. Proctor has served on the Jasper City Council since 2017, now in his second full term.

A native of East Point, Georgia, he and his wife Karen have lived in Jasper since 1995. They have meticulously restored their historic 100-year-old home in Jasper, and have a son, Folsom, who is a graduate of Pickens High and Berry College. Well known in the community, Dr. Proctor and his family believe in practicing traditional Christian morals and values, and they try to pay it forward in their community.

Dr. Proctor received his B.A. in Biology from Wake Forest University. Prior to attending medical school at Medical College of Georgia he helped run a family-owned business called Proctor Forest Products, an office broker of lumber, moldings and millwork. This small private company was one of the largest suppliers east of the Mississippi River of west coast specialty woods, including Redwood, White Pine and Douglas Fir.

Having done his Internship and Residency at Georgia Baptist Medical Center, where he was born, he is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and practiced at Mountainside Medical Center, later named Piedmont Mountainside, until his retirement from practice in 2010. During that time, he was one of the team physicians for the Pickens County Dragons, and for 15 years conducted a bump and bruise clinic for injured players every Saturday during football season. He served thousands of patients from Jasper, Pickens County and other surrounding counties including veterans, uninsured and other patients who otherwise struggled to receive treatment. During his tenure at Mountainside, he served in many leadership roles, including the Chief of Surgery and as President of the Medical Staff. After his health-related retirement, he served as both Vice President of Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at Piedmont Mountainside Hospital for Piedmont Healthcare until retiring in 2014. He is still licensed in Georgia and Board Certified.

Locally, Dr. Proctor has given back to his community, serving on many volunteer boards, including Good Samaritan, and the Chamber of Commerce, where he was the Chairman of the Board in 2018. He currently serves on the Board of Public Health and he is a charter ex officio member of the Board of Directors of the Pickens County Veteran’s Memorial. He has also served on several Advisory

Councils, including at Chattahoochee Technical College and Reinhardt University.

His areas of special interest include economic development, strategic planning, historical preservation, and downtown revitalization. He served as the Co-Chairman of the combined city and county Economic Development Hiring Committee and currently serves on the Enterprise Committee (water, sewer, and sanitation) and the Building and Development Committees for Jasper. His love of history, his education, training, experience and results in strategic planning, and his passion for Pickens County all contribute to his dedication to assure the future success of our community. .
