Mary Elam

Mary Elam is a graduate of Blackman High School and is attending Middle Tennessee State University majoring in Child Development and Family Studies.  Mary has worked as an after school teacher, a Pre-K teacher and was also a nanny for twin boys. Mary says, “That each child is a unique, individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.” Mary attends Fellowship United Methodist and her favorite Bible verse is Colossians 3:12-14, “Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.  Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.  Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.”
