Middle School Gym Teacher Latest Educator to be Arrested for Tryst With Student


BLAIRSVILLE, Ga. – A former Union County middle school gym teacher was arrested Monday for a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Sadly, this has become an all too common storyline.

Shawnetta D. Reece, 40, of Blairsville, was sexually involved with the student in 2013, GBI said in a news release Monday.

Reece was arrested after the Union County Sheriff’s Office received information on the purported relationship, and asked the GBI to assist with the investigation.

“The student was moving from the 8th grade into the 9th grade during this time,” the news release stated. “As a result of the investigation, Reece has been arrested for child molestation and sexual assault by persons with supervisory or disciplinary authority.”


Officials said once the investigation is completed, the case will be presented to the Enotah Judicial Circuit District Attorney for prosecution.
