My husband James and I have been married over 40 years. Our three children all graduated from DSHS with honors, and all are successfully employed professionals. We deeply appreciate the excellent academic base they received here in DSISD.

We are members at Austin Oaks Church, where I teach in the children’s department. We have been leaders in the Boy Scouts program. When our children were in school, we were proud DS band supporters as well.
