Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) established its Employee of the Month Program in 2021 to recognize hard working employees, especially as we navigate uncharted times in legal education during COVID-19. AJMLS appreciates the efforts of its employees who strive to achieve goals and fulfill the vision of Atlanta’s John Marshall. Outstanding employees deserve to be recognized both as a reward for exceptional performance and as a model to others. The program seeks to recognize hard work and achievement in the workplace and is a peer-to-peer recognition program.
The October 2021 Employee of the Month recipient is AJ Doucett, Director of Alumni Relations.
AJ is a proud alumnus of AJMLS, who began his journey as a student in 2004. After successful completion of the Georgia bar exam, he worked as the Law School’s Reference Librarian and got to know so many students who came in to print or study. Now, he says, the best part of his job as the Alumni Director is reconnecting with all those students who are now alumni.
When asked of his work, his coworkers commented, “He has embraced his new position and continues to jump into more involvement, above and beyond what he is required” and “AJ is such a kind and outgoing team player who is genuinely invested in the success of his alma mater!”
AJ enjoys hiking, reading, and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs. His passion for volunteering with youth began when he was in college. He has volunteered with the Buckhead Church High School ministry since 2009 and with kids at the Atlanta Mission since 2014. One of his favorite quotes that drives him to volunteer with kids is “Be the person you needed when you were young.”
AJ is well-known and liked by faculty, staff, students, and alumni, and we are thankful to have him on our team.
