Margaret A. Staton’s goal was to improve the availability of all-inclusive services for people with disabilities. Ms. Staton was a great advocate for all people with disabilities. She believed only through education may we lessen inequality among individuals with disabilities in Georgia and in America. Though Ms. Staton used a wheelchair since the age of two, she never let her physical handicap slow her pace. Her ideals of perseverance and self-determination were reflected in her life and in the belief that no one should have to live through the prejudicial discrimination and exclusion that she and her peers had to endure in the past.
