Judge Glenda Hatchett

Guest Author - Jackie OŽNeal

Judge Glenda Hatchett



My students at Atlantic Cape Community College developed a list of questions for Judge Hatchett once I advised them she would my featured guest on “Giving Hearts Live” Internet Voices Radio: http://www.internetvoicesradio.com. Naturally, students wanted to know how Judge Hatchett finds the time and energy to complete her meritorious work in the community.

Although she is best known for her participation in the nationally syndicated television series, “Judge Hatchett”, she also serves as the national spokesperson for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a non-profit volunteer organization whose mission it is to train volunteers to assist abused and neglected children in the court system.

Judge Hatchett enjoys being resourceful and directing others to serve in the community by suggesting some of her favorite organizations. I asked her about recommending an organization that serves the poor, and she mentioned, The United Way. As I continued my research, I discovered The United Way operates in many local communities and by visiting their extensive website, a visitor may key in their zip code to find their local United Office.


Judge Hatchett concerns herself with troubled youth and finds innovative ways to sentence youth once they end up in the system. She worked in conjunction with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club to help youth connect with executives and community leaders to derive inspiration and direction for their lives.

Asked where she finds the time and energy to accomplish so much, Judge Hatchett explains how self- care has played a role. After contracting pneumonia, Judge Hatchett became aware the illness proved to be a wake up call for her to slow down and nurture herself, in order to guard her health and well- being.

Those that care for others, often forget to care for themselves and end up terribly ill and unable to function. Although, a hard lesson to grasp, many giving souls soon realize the importance of self-care to conserve energy and continue in charitable endeavors.

Among her accomplishments, Judge Hatchett also authored a book, Say What you mean and mean what you say, a national best seller (Harper Collins 2003) describing her extensive work as a jurist and also a mother of two boys.
