Community volunteer leaves lasting impact

Ever present with a winning smile and can-do attitude, Judy Patterson of the Archer Cluster of schools located in Lawrenceville was one of those super moms able to look beyond her own children to the welfare of all children in the community. Whether raising funds for Cooper Elementary, serving on the PTA board, participating on the Archer Schools Council, or stepping in weekly if not daily to assist teachers and students in the classroom, the word no simply was not in Judy’s vocabulary.
