Name?Presentations: ?.

This was a brief bio submitted for our "Here's My UU 4 U" series.

Gayle Wood says, "UU is 4 Me". Gayle's first introduction to a Unitarian Church was in Oklahoma City where she and Bruce were attending services before being married there in 1979.

After moving to Jasper in 2010, Gayle discovered Mountain Light from a tiny ad in the Ellijay newspaper. Since joining MLUUC in 2012, she has served as Membership Lead, Sunday Services Lead, Director-At-Large, and now as President since 2015.

Gayle loves retirement so much she has retired 3 times. She has an undergraduate degree from Oklahoma State University and a masters from University of Central Oklahoma. She has taught every grade from 1st to 8th for 34 years, both regular education and special education in both Oklahoma and Cobb County, GA. The most rewarding (and fun) teaching Gayle did was as a Direct Instruction Consultant, training and coaching teachers for 8 years.

Bruce and Gayle have two grown sons: Jacob who lives in New York City and Jordan who lives in Austin, Texas.

Gayle will talk to us today about a pioneering Unitarian Universalist, Olympia Brown.
