Mrs. Julia Saunders-Graves is the Classified Golden Achievement Award winner for October 2022. Principal Dr. Shawn Benefield shared the following upon presenting the award:

“Julia Saunders-Graves began her career as a paraprofessional at Ware County Middle School over 14 years ago. After serving as a paraprofessional for many years, she transitioned into the special education secretary position. In this role, Mrs. Graves performs many duties such as scheduling parent meetings, completing special education paperwork, covering classes when needed, conducting hearing and vision screenings, as well as countless other secretarial responsibilities. 

“Although she has a multitude of tasks to keep her busy throughout the workday, Mrs. Graves is always willing to assist in the front office, lend a helping hand to other staff members, and offer an encouraging word to anyone who enters her office. Mrs. Graves goes above and beyond her job title, and is truly deserving of this award. We are very grateful to have her as part of the Ware Middle Family.”

Congratulations, Mrs. Graves! You are a wonderful asset to Ware County Middle School.
