Sha' Vonne was selected for our March 2007 "Employee of the Month" award due to the outstanding quality of a recent Juvenile Court Investigative Report she presented in a Juvenile Court Disposition Hearing. Her report was so thorough and complete that on February 7, 2007, it was cited as being of exceptional quality on review by the Waco Court of Appeals.
The Waco Court of Appeals cited her outstanding report as a significant influencing factor causing the Court to uphold a lower court ruling in this particular juvenile case that was under appeal. Therefore, Sha' Vonne was instrumental in actually influencing the course of juvenile law in the State of Texas. This is quite a rare occurrence, and something to be very proud of. Great job Sha' Vonne for a job very well done. We are all so proud of you.
