About the Nominee: Christi Jones was nominated by Casey Davis. Mrs. Jones is a dynamic person at every level of her professional and personal life! In addition to her work as a counselor, she is also the mother of a college freshman and is working on her doctorate. She, along with the help of several local churches and clubs, started a backpack program at her school to provide meals for students who might not have regular meals over the holidays or weekends.
A few years ago, Mrs. Jones was awarded the Alabama Counselor of the Year for her accomplishments and represented Alabama and the United States at the National Counseling Conference as a presenter in 2016. Mrs. Jones never forgets the reason that she does what she does every day. That reason is her students, along with her teachers. She has a servant's heart, and she is always going above and beyond the call of duty to be the counselor her school needs.
