Helping young people and their families is a daily occurrence for Whitfield County Juvenile Court Deputy Clerk Christina Curtis.

But her positive attitude and compassion for others are what really make a difference in her efforts working with local families as they try to make it through what can often be trying times.

For her efforts at Juvenile Court, Curtis has been named Whitfield County Employee of the Month for December.

“Tina is an amazing employee,” says Jennifer Richardson, who nominated Curtis for the honor. “She will go way above and beyond to do whatever is needed. She will stay late when court is running over. She will do any work that is asked and volunteer for any additional work. She will help in other departments as needed.”

During her two years on the job, Curtis has attended classes, seminars and extracurricular activities of the court.

“She is ALWAYS positive, compassionate and always goes the extra step for all her co-workers and her community,” Richardson says.

Curtis has volunteered for community activities, including a basketball camp for children and Teen Maze.

“Tina constantly wants to learn about her job and any areas that affect her job,” Richardson says, noting that Curtis attended the clerk’s conference last year and received educational hours not required of her.

Curtis attended the Darkness to Light training and also cross trained with Probation to get a better understanding of their job.

“She always lifts the spirits of her co-workers,” Richardson says. “She truly cares for them and their well-being. She is an amazing person and an awesome employee.”

To help local residents learn more about her, Curtis filled out the following fun questionnaire.
