Exceptional father

Jamie Graves was recognized with The ‘Exceptional Father’ Award at the Cheer For Children Holiday Gala on Saturday, Dec. 8. He was recognized because of his dedication as a young father to his 1-year-old son. 

Jamie works two jobs to support his family and is involved in every aspect of his young son’s life. He has studied and monitors his child’s developmental progress. “Somehow, even with all of the demands of his time, Jamie has chosen to give back to The Parenting Place, Prevent Child Abuse Pickens County by spending countless hours helping to establish our website,” said Gloria Morris, Executive Director of The Parenting Place. 

The Parenting Place staff is proud of the accomplishments of young parents that have recognized there is hope for a brighter future. It takes believing in yourself, determination and taking one step at a time for a better tomorrow.
