“The Clemmie” Award Winner for 2012:
  Dr. Patricia A. Hatton

Dr. Patricia A. Hatton, noted Board Certified Physician and Surgeon, specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology, has served our community for over 30 years. She has served as president of the San Joaquin Medical Society, and currently is on staff with Gill Obstetrics & Gynecology Medical Group, Inc. Her entire career has been devoted to the care of women and children. Although her professional credentials are impressive, her dedication to the community is unsurpassed.

An advocate for issues related to education, health, the youth and civil rights, she can be counted on to donate her intellect, time and finances. Her passion is supporting activities and programs dedicated to elevating the educational status of persons of African descent.

She purchased and refurbished an old Stockton restaurant in 2000. Through partnering with the Ebenezer Economic Development Corporation (EEDC) and collaborating with other organizations and individuals “The Rock” has become a center for important community activities and celebrations. The signature program, The Stockton African American Saturday School (SASS) was created to facilitate academic excellence, improve SAT scores, promote computer literacy and increase the number of African American students who graduate from college.

As Executive Director, Dr. Hatton recruited community volunteers and members of the Black Employees Association of Stockton Unified School District to serve as tutors and mentors. The Saturday School, with its computer lab, serves at least 30 students weekly.

Because of Dr. Hatton, The Rock provides a place for the community to meet, hold fundraisers, conduct workshops and recitals. If it is about the youth, The Rock will host it! Annual SAT Prep Workshops, poetry slams, crab feeds, Kwanzaa, and The Clemmie and Harry Owens Music Recitals are other activities hosted there.

This quiet professional serves on many community boards including St. Joseph’s Medical Center Foundation Board and makes presentations throughout the country. Her greatest liability is her inability to say, “No,” when called upon by the community she loves and serves. Recently widowed, she is a devoted mother, friend and serves as Superintendent of Sunday School at Ebenezer AME Church as well.

Affectionately known as “Dr. Pat” by some, she also conducts a free, walk-in GYN clinic for females needing services, irrespective of age and ability to pay. The Stockton Chapter, The Links, Incorporated proudly proclaims, Dr. Patricia A. Hatton, Recipient of the 2012 “The Clemmie” Services to Youth Award!
