Tonight I attended the third graduation this week. As most of you know when I changed jobs I was required to travel between two schools. Wadley High School is where I finished up my day. amie Langley, a native of Wadley.....and former Miss Alabama was the Keynote speaker. She is amazing. Each one of my seniors touched me in a different way. Some made me laugh, some made me sad, some made me smile, some amazed me, and some were just special. No matter how they touched me my seniors there all left their footprints on my heart in a big way. I met all of them the first day of school and by Labor Day they were mine. I will miss them madly next year and I hope they know how much I love them all. I wish them the very best as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
