My family has been members of Highland since 1974. All four of my children were baptized at Highland by Reverend John M. Cline and Jonathan, Scott and Wendy were married in our sanctuary. Chrissie is attending law school in Charleston, SC.
I attended Peace College and received a Secretarial Certificate. (I’m not telling what year!) In 1980, I began working 15-20 hours per week as the Staff Secretary and served as the Associate Pastor’s and Youth Director’s secretary. Early 1984, I took a full time position with the NC Methodist Conference only to discover we would be having a fourth child in October. I returned to Highland part time in 1985 as Staff Secretary. Upon the retirement of the Church Secretary in November 1986, I was blessed to be asked to serve full time in that position. With the hiring of a full time Staff Secretary, my position’s title was changed to Pastors’ Assistant. This year this position was changed to Church Office Administrator and I began working 17 ½ hours per week as Congregation Care Coordinator.
I have and continue to be blessed by the members of this wonderful congregation and thank you for the opportunity to serve God by my presence at this great church.
