Meet Marcy Sanders, Work Based Learning Coordinator at Mary Persons High School in Monroe County. Marcy recently brought her GPP students to Atlanta for GPP Leadership Day at the Capitol. She also coordinates the students in their employment at the Georgia Department of Corrections in Forsyth. Thank you Marcy for your passion and all you do for your students!
On January 25, 2021 Marcy Sanders was in a fatal automobile accident and is survived by her three daughters. While she was WBL Coordinator for Monroe County Schools, Marcy worked with GPP students employed at the Georgia Department of Corrections in Forsyth. The love she had for her students was evident when you witnessed her mentoring and encouraging them. As stated in the obituary, "Marcy was a surrogate mother to many and was always willing to share her bright smile, sparkling eyes and full heart. Most of all, she was a devoted mother to her three girls who were the light of her life and a constant joy."
Rest In Peace.
