Cheryl Richardson, Marietta’s first black female judge, teaches Estate Planning & Probate Law for KSU’s College of Continuing and Professional Education’s Paralegal Certificate program. Richardson made history when she was appointed by Marietta Mayor Steve Tumlin in January. She was sworn in on Feb. 26.
Barbara Calhoun, dean, said, “Judge Richardson adds a significant level of excellence and expertise to our paralegal program, and we are so honored to have her. Her impact to KSU and Cobb County are unmatched.”
The Paralegal Certificate program has a long-standing history with KSU’s continuing education program, dating back to 1985. This year marked the introduction of daytime classes, which are offered from 9 a.m. to noon at KSU Center (3333 Busbee Drive in Kennesaw).
“We are also proud to announce the introduction of an on-site law library – a first for our program,” said Jennifer Henderson, Paralegal program manager. “With more than 2,000 reference books of important cases, this type of access is unprecedented for this program. The library, coupled with the benefit of Judge Richardson’s expertise, makes our program elite and unique.”
