Funeral director qualifies for recertification

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Jeffrey Scott Wages, a funeral director with Wages & Sons in Lawrenceville, recently qualified for recertification of the designation of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice.

A number of professions grant special recognition to members upon completion of specified academic and professional programs, and the Certified Funeral Service Practitioner is the funeral service's national individual recognition.

According to a news release from the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, "a select few have distinguished themselves among peers within the funeral service profession as they continue their education to exceed the highest standards of care."

"This achievement is especially notable because Jeffrey has voluntarily elected to participate in quality educational and service opportunities that far surpass what the funeral service licensing board in Georgia requires."

For more information about the organization, visit www.apfsp.org.

Wages & Sons Funeral Homes and Crematories is located at 1031 Lawrenceville Highway.
