I am a proud Russellville High School Alumni… “Class of 1985.” Upon graduating from RHS I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics Education from the University of North Alabama and a Master’s Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education from Alabama A & M. I am now in my 29th year of teaching at Russellville High School.
I was born and raised in Franklin County and have lived for 29 years in the Tharptown community. I am blessed with two daughters Kara and Maggie. Kara is a 2009 graduate of Russellville High School and a 2013 graduate of the University of North Alabama with a B.S. degree in Business Management. Kara is employed by G&G Steele as the Human Resources Manager. She is married to Seth Pendergrass. My 2nd daughter Maggie is a more recent graduate of RHS with the class of 2013. She followed Kara and I to the University of North Alabama were she received a degree in Political Science/Pre Law in 2017. Maggie graduated from Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham and is an Associate Attorney at Chenault Hammond in Decatur. I am a "Sugar" to my grandson James Dean Pendergrass "JD". I consider my family my greatest accomplishment.
I consider myself truly blessed to work in such a great school and community. Thank you for letting me be just a small part of your child’s life. It’s GREAT to be a Golden Tiger!
