“Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God's ideal for His children" (ED pg. 18). This is just one of the many amazing words of inspiration that brought Tammy as a 13-year-old to become a first-generation Seventh-day Adventist.
Her first experience at a Christian school was U.C.A. After graduation in 1975, she attended WWC and graduated with a double major in Home Economics and Elementary Education. After teaching, she saw a need for further education and received her MA at Central Washington University. Her thesis title "Why Teachers quit teaching in Adventist Schools", (which was simply derived from her leaving teaching to get married), made her realize Christian Education must be doing something right if the devil was trying so hard to destroy it.
Her three children attended U.C.A. and now she is delighted her first granddaughter is a student there. Tammy and her husband Bill are now semi-retired from the family real estate business, and she is happy to support the foundation.
