“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” This quote from Gandhi has been the guiding principle of my professional and public careers. After graduation from UK, I taught English and U. S. History in Atlanta, Memphis, and Louisville. Upon retirement, I came home to Hyden to work with others to make a difference in the lives of children. In addition to the city commission, I serve on the board of directors for the Frontier Nursing Service and COLLY, an organization dedicated to the betterment of children in our county. I want our young people to grow up in a nurturing environment, prepare themselves for a life’s profession, and return home to make Hyden a better place.
