In the fall of 1960, (my senior year) Wallace transferred as a junior from UNC. One of my former boyfriends had told him to avoid me, as I was bad news. This only made him more curious to know me. We had our first date at a missions conference in February 1961 and were married exactly one year later. I knew that I was marrying a ministerial student and hoped that in this partnership I could follow through on my calling to music ministry. God made this possible as we went on to pastor 4 churches in 3 states as well as other opportunities for ministry. We have now returned to our alma mater, which we love and appreciate, to help her in any way we can.
