Bartholomew named Executive Director of Decatur County CASA

Pamela Bartholomew was recently hired as the new Executive Director of Decatur County CASA. Pamela is originally from Decaturville and has a degree in Agriculture Education from the University of Tennessee at Martin. Her past experiences from being the Director of Marketing of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture and as an educator in urban and rural high schools have prepared her for this new role. “When I taught in Robertson County it was a sad realization that over half my students had been abused and/or going through situations that no child should have to be faced. I worked with several local groups to help children of that county and when this position became available, I knew it was a way to give back and help Decatur County.” Currently, Pamela is active in the community as a small business owner of Larry’s and farmer, plus involved with Decaturville Main Street Association, Concord FCE Club, 4-H volunteer, and Decatur County Chamber of Commerce.

Decatur County CASA supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every child who has experienced abuse or neglect can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive. 

Bartholomew states, “One of my top priorities in this new position is recruitment of CASA volunteer advocates. There is a desperate need of advocates to be the voice of children in Decatur County. CASA advocates make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.”
