Bullock County Probate Judge James E. Tatum

Probate Judge James E. Tatum is investing in the future of Bullock County, Alabama by helping students there succeed. He has given each third grade student at Union Springs Elementary School and Conecuh Springs Christian School a new dictionary and two other books that encourage character traits needed for a successful life. Judge Tatum believes that communication is the key to learning and that a dictionary is an essential tool for a quality education. Whether talking with others or giving a speech, an abundant vocabulary is necessary to convey one’s thoughts. According to Judge Tatum, “Today, more than ever, young people need this kind of commitment from adults in the community to help offset the negative influences to which they are regularly exposed.”
