Mrs Hess joined the Edge Board in September of 2017 as the Parent Liason member. She has lived in Putnam County for 57 years. Born and raised in Palatka, she was in the first graduating class of the newly built Palatka High in 1978. Married right out of High School and has been married for 39 years, and has two children and five grandchildren.
Working cleaning houses while her children were in school, went to work in 2000 with Rotech Oxygen and Medical until 2005 and went to work with Family Medical in Palatka, now known as Azalea Health. In 2005 was given custody of my two Grandchildren and resigned from Family Medical in 2006 to commit my time to raising them.
A stay at home Grandmother, she home schooled them for four years through Middle and High School up until 2016 when they attended Putnam EDGE High School. Nalana was a Senior and Trace in tenth grade, and that was when I became interested in Putnam EDGE.
Working in Childrens Ministry's, now serving at First Assembly of God in Palatka, Deborah is currently the Nursery Assistant and Foster Care Support Coordinator. She has always been interested in how to serve to make our Community/County better.
With a Servant's heart that is the reason for my interest in the request to consider
serving on Putnam EDGE's School Board as Parent Liaison/Board Member for this coming school year. Deborah wants to make a difference in this County to improve the reputation and statistics. Helping educate students so they can achieve their goals and also make a difference as they move forth in becoming productive citizens. Giving them the opportunity to learn in an unconventional way and building motivational skills in life lessons as they pass down those high expectations to their children, She believes that will make the difference here in
