A Jones County educator is set to leave Friday on an adventure that will take her around the world in the span of Thanksgiving holidays.

Christy Prosser has worked for the Jones County School System for seven years and has a passion for traveling as well as education. It took her 15 years to bring her dream of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to fruition but the adventure is chronicled in the Fall 2013 edition of the Jones Living magazine, which is anticipated to be released next week.

Prosser is originally from Covington and after graduating from Piedmont Academy, she earned her teaching degree from Georgia College & State University. She went to work in New Hampshire and eventually made her way to Jones County as the director of student information and school safety.

“I knew people here and I got a good offer,” she said.

Prosser said she likes the Middle Georgia area because she wanted to stay in public education and close to her family.

The educator takes care of the data management of Jones County students, registration and scheduling. One of her tasks is keeping up with state reports. She said a year ago the requirement was 387 data elements for each student. This year that has increased to 684 elements.
