    I grew up in Selmer, TN and graduated from McNairy Central High School in 2001.  I realized during my senior year that attending college right after high school was not the best next step for me.  I attended a lineman training program that was co-taught by Southwest Tennessee Community College and Memphis Light Gas and Water.  I moved to Gibson County in 2003 when I became employed by Gibson Electric Membership Corporation and I have been proud to call this area my home ever since.  I decided to continue my education in 2012 and I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree as a part time student at the University of Tennessee at Martin.

    I married Kelly (Williford) in 2006.  Kelly is a pharmacist/owner of Duncan’s Pharmacy with stores located in Trenton and Dyer.  She is a 1997 graduate of Peabody High School, so it was important to us that our children, Bennett c/o 2028 and Ansleigh c/o 2031, attend Trenton Special School District.  Our family attends First Presbyterian Church in Trenton where we are actively involved.  I have served as a deacon, elder, and as a volunteer youth leader.  I have also been involved with many youth activities in Trenton including YMCA sports, Cal Ripken Baseball, Babe Ruth Softball, Peabody flag football, and Cub Scouts Pack 47. 

    I believe as a district our job is to make sure every child is as prepared as possible for the next opportunity, whether their next step is a four-year university, community college, trade school, military, or straight into the workforce holding a certificate.  There are also many extracurricular opportunities through the arts, athletics, clubs and S.T.E.M. for the students of the district to grow into adults.   The citizens in and around Trenton take great pride in their school system and are always there to support it at every level.
