My life since graduation:
In 1961, I married my junior/high school
sweetheart, Herschell C. Hicks. We have been married
for over 48 years. When we married, Herschell was a
commerical printer, but four years into our marriage he
accepted the call of God on his life and became a
minister of the gospel. He served as interim pastor for
three churches before becoming a full time pastor. We
have been at our present church for over 25 years. All
those years of standing and talking around the rotunda
were not in vain; they taught me how to talk with
The ministry has brought changes in our lives. I always
had a love for music but never thought much about it,
but the Lord 'fine-tuned' my voice and gave me a talent
to use for Him along side Herschell. Then 25 years ago,
the Lord began to open doors for me to speak at ladies
banquets, conferences, and seminars. I truly enjoy this
area of my life.
Herschell and I have no children, but in reality we have
many children through the ministry.
We have traveled to several foreign countries on mission
trips and have some hair-rising stories to share.
Looking forward to seeing FRIENDS again at the reunion.
