The Women of HART: Zemmie Jones

In celebration of March as Women's History Month, we're shining the light on the fantastic women that make up HART! First up is Zemmie Jones.

Ms. Jones has worked at HART for almost 18 years as a Maintenance Attendant.

Growing up in Waynesboro, GA, Ms. Jones says she always found inspiration from her grandmother.

"My grandmother taught me that if I worked hard, I could be anything that I wanted to be. She always told me to keep a good heart."

And in Ms. Jones, that heart shines through at HART.

Volunteering with HART co-workers for Paint Your Heart Out, the HART Wellness program, Annual Regional Roadeo, etc., she is a busy woman.

In addition to her community and HART participation, Ms. Jones is a mother to one son, 2 granddaughters and 3 grandsons.

One of her granddaughters is graduating in the spring.

"It's important to go to school and get your education. Young woman especially, have to fight for respect, and need an education to make something of themselves. Once you get your education, the sky is the limit." says Ms. Jones.

Something tells us that just like her grandmother before her, Zemmie is the inspiration to the younger generation of women in her family.
