Cindy graduated from LaGrange High School in 1976, attended Shorter College, and then graduated from the University of West Georgia with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Music Education. She was an elementary music teacher at LaGrange Academy for 10 years, and later in the Troup County School System from which she retired in 2018.

Her love for music was evident throughout her life. This heavenly gift gave her opportunities to impact so many lives through teaching, serving and performing.
