BCSD Employee of the Week - Donna Epps
The Baldwin County School District's Employee of the Week Recognition program returns where we highlight the outstanding employees here at the Board of Education.
This week's BOE Employee of the Week is our Finance Administrative Assistant Donna Epps. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Mrs. Epps moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1969 and moved to Milledgeville in 1980. After graduating from Sequoyah High School in Doraville, Ga. she attended Georgia Military College for a year, where she met her husband, Ray Epps. Mr. Epps is a registered nurse who works at the Washington County Regional Hospital in Sandersville, Ga. She has been married for almost 40 years and is the mother of 6 children: Tim, Scott, Kimberly Ryan, Justin, Brandon and Cassidy Ann. All of her children graduated from Baldwin High School. She is also the grandmother to 18 grandchildren - the oldest being 22 years old and the youngest being 10 months old!
One of her favorite things to do outside of work is to spend time with her children and grandchildren. She and her husband enjoy traveling but prefer to make road trips over flying.
In November, Mrs. Epps will enter her 24th year of service at the school district. She began working for the Board of Education in 1996. As part of the district's finance team, she works primarily on federal and state grants as well as the school budget. Mrs. Epps thoroughly enjoys her work and working alongside her colleagues at the central office and the office staff at each school. Beyond finance, Mrs. Epps has other talents as well. She taught ballet for approximately 15 years at the School of Dance here in Milledgeville.
Thank you Mrs. Epps for all that you do for our school district. You are greatly appreciated.
