“My grandmother, great grandmother, and my great Grandfather taught here in Evans County, so it was like teaching chose me, I didn’t choose teacher.”

“It’s doesn’t matter what they choose to do in life, whether it’s to go to school again or straight to work. I just want them to be productive citizens in life.”
