The Cobb County School District (CCSD) Social Worker of the Year, Jacqueline Fross, has served as a school social worker for more than 20 years. She is a member of the CCSD Crisis Response Team, and serves as a field supervisor for social work interns.
In addition to having served on the boards of the National Association of Social Work and the state School Social Work Association, Fross is also a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress and is certified in crisis response and critical incident debriefing.
Contributing to the professional growth of her colleagues, Cobb’s Social Worker of the Year has supervised and mentored other service professionals in preparation of professional licensure.
“I have had the privilege of a very diverse and rich work history to include many years as a school social worker, medical social worker, mental health professional, supervisor, crisis response counselor, consultant, and advocate,” says Fross. “Active involvement in my community and professional organizations is important to me.”
Fross currently supports students at Lassiter High School, Mabry Middle School, Davis Elementary, Garrison Mill Elementary, and Rocky Mount Elementary.
As part of her service to Cobb students, Fross has organized community service projects, sponsored a student club promoting volunteerism and service, and assisted in the creation of the Lassiter community pantry and other community resources.
