I came to Mountain Pine School District in the 5th grade and attended through the 11th grade getting my GED my senior year in 1977.
I have been married to Curtis Ward since 1976.

We have 4 grand daughters: Emily Grace Ward, Kalenda Leigh Ward (Mtn. Pine School District), Kaylee Marie Ward (Mtn. Pine School District), and Kayla Leigh Hull.
I attend New Salem United Methodist Church where I wear many hats: I sing in the choir, lead the congregational singing, am the liturgist, recording secretary, UMW secretary, teach 7-12 Sunday School, and am the voting delegate to Annual Conference.
I was the school’s yearbook adviser for 8 years.
