After graduation from Ashley, I graduated from Gaston College, where I became involved in the Gamma Beta Phi Society, was a member of the school newspaper, and worked a few hours at Belk's. Then I went to Mars Hill College and graduated with a degree in English and secondary education. My first teaching job was a Hunter Huss. While teaching there, I met my husband, Steve Greene, who was in the Air Force and we were married in 1972. After he got out of the Air Force, he went to Belmont Abbey and then obtained a teaching certificate. We then moved to Lexington, North Carolina, where he worked as a teacher and coach for many years. I taught at West Davidson High School in all levels until I retired in 2001. My husband became a principal of all levels in his career after giving up his coaching career. Along the way, I had two beautiful girls, Stefanie, a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and Ashley, a graduate of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. Ashley is getting ready to get married in Tortola in the British Isles on December 1. We are very excited about a winter vacation and a wedding! I do some volunteering with my church when I am in Lexington. I stay every other week in Gastonia with my mom since my dad passed away in 2011. When I have an opportunity, I try to go see my children or head to Myrtle Beach, one of my favorite places in the world.

School Story

In recollection, Ashley made a tremendous difference in my life. I made many friends who meant/mean a great deal to me. I think that my going to most of the athletic events helped prepare me for being a cheerleader sponsor at school and for staying married to a coach and principal. Also, my being a part of the Keyette Club helped prepare me to be more civic minded and to work within a group of wonderful young ladies. I know that I would not give anything for that experience. Moreover, I enjoyed being on the school literary magazine and being a member of the Pep Club. I truly believe that these organizations helped to mold me for my career and some of my life's choices.

In addition, I had great teachers who taught me a work ethic and instilled in me a love of learning that I have tried to pass on to my children and my students. There were many great mentors; however, Mrs. Culp and Mrs. Marvin made a major difference in my life. Mrs. Culp prepared me for the challenges of being an English major and Mrs. Marvin inspired me and made me want to question the status quo!

I will always remember the football game when we went to Winston Salem, and we lost by yardage! Also, I will remember breaking my ankle at a bonfire, which I think helped me get to know more people my sophomore year.
I also remember a teacher with a very unique name, which I would try not to say under any circumstance. I would actually turn red if I had to say it!

I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your husband. May you find comfort in knowing that he no longer has pain and that one day you will meet again. May God wrap his arms around you and give you strength in the days ahead.

Sincerely,

Debbie was a good friend of mine from Arlington through Gaston College.  She was a very nice person who always smiled and who had a really unique laugh!  I hope we can find out more from a family member.  Her sister was Susan Smith and her cousin was Keith Fulghum.  I can always remember her love for Gayle Storm and her collection of magazines of this movie star!

I always remember Bill with his smile and his John Wayne voice.  He grew up on the street where I lived when he was a little boy.  We were always in homeroom since I was an Alexander.  I think I harbored a secret crush on him and actually went out with him a few times after his return from Vietnam.  He was a really nice person and everyone liked him.  It is so sad that he and other classmates left us way too early!

I remember her beautiful smile and kind ways.  She was always cheerful and very smart.  Debbie was liked by all!
