I attended Freed Hardeman-College where I met Pamelia Edwards from Bells, Tennessee. We married in August of 1976. In December of 1976 I graduated from Freed-Hardeman College with a B.S. degree in secondary Education with an endorsement in History. After graduation, I worked in construction in the Jackson area until August of 1980 when I began teaching at Jackson Christian School. I taught at JCS from 1980 through the 1988 school year. I spent the next 5 years in the construction business in Crockett County and re-entered the teaching profession in 1993 teaching construction classes at Crockett County High School. During my tenure here I have taught construction classes, History classes and drive a school bus route as well as many sports teams.
Pamelia and I make our home in Crockett County and have four children and five grandchildren.
