Long-term Substitute 


I was born at MCCS Camp Pendleton in California. After my father discharged from the US Navy, we moved to Savannah, Georgia to be closer to family. When I was about twelve, my mother, sister, and I moved to Americus to be closer to my maternal grandparents. I have been a resident of Sumter County for over 30 years. 

I have been married to Rudy Dowdey for 25 years. Between us we have six children and numerous grandchildren. My son is a current student at Americus Sumter High School. My youngest daughter attends SGTC. She has a earned degree in Business Management. She is completing the Medical Assisting Program and plans to enter the Practical Nursing Program at SGTC. My oldest daughter graduated May 2015 from Auburn University with a BS in Animal Science. She recently earned a 2nd Bachelor's degree in Biology at GSW and currently works for the GA Department of Health and Human Services. WAR EAGLE!!!!
