Judge Schrader is one of only 10 individuals in the State of Georgia to be presented the JUSTICE ROBERT BENHAM AWARD for Community Service. In 2018, this recognition was bestowed upon Judge Schrader for her continuing efforts to build awareness in our community of the substance abuse and mental health crisis in we are facing in Gwinnett County.
“Since 1998, these awards have been presented to honor judges and lawyers in Georgia who have made significant contributions to their communities and demonstrate the positive contributions of members of the Bar beyond their official or legal work.”
Judge Schrader was first elected in 2012, then re-elected in 2016. She is continuously expanding her judicial expertise and is a regular participant in National Judicial College courses.
Judge Schrader was selected to serve as a Group Facilitator at the specialized training course at the National Judicial College focused on Fourth Amendment Search and Seizure. She has served the Gwinnett County community as a lawyer for over three decades and as a Superior Court Judge for nearly eight years. Many who have appeared before her have expressed their appreciation for her thoughtfulness and fairness as a judge.
Since being elected, Judge Schrader has been invited to speak at a number of legal and leadership conferences, including with community groups such as Rotary and Kiwanis, as well as in schools and churches. Presentations include: "Building Awareness of Treatment Courts," "How the Faith Community can Respond to the Opioid Crisis," and "The Opioid Crisis and Mental Health Issues in the Courts."
Judge Schrader volunteers through her church, and encourages volunteers to support others in learning how to vote during the COVID-19 crisis, so that everyone may obtain and send in absentee ballots.
