The Atlanta Journal-Constitution introduces readers to a member of the city’s thriving 55+ community. In November, it profiles Judge Wenona Clark Belton.
Raised in suburban Washington, D.C., Judge Belton relocated to Atlanta about 30 years ago. After working in fashion merchandising and attending paralegal school, Belton enrolled in law school twenty years after getting her undergraduate degree. Today, Belton serves as a judge for the juvenile court system in Fulton County and as a board member of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. Additionally, Belton is a cabinet member for Get Georgia Reading, where she aims to improve children’s futures by promoting reading proficiency.
