Where I Grew Up:

I am originally from Mohawk, TN, which is in rural Western Greene County. Tennessee. However, due to my father’s job I spent several years, including high school and college in Mullins and Marion, South Carolina. I returned to Tennessee in 1983 to work on my Master’s Degree and begin work as an educator. While doing so, I became reacquainted with childhood friends, one of which became my wife.


High School Diploma – Pee Dee Academy (1977)

Bachelor of Science Degree – Francis Marion College (1981)

Master’s of Arts in Teaching – East Tennessee State University (1984)

Doctor of Education – East Tennessee State University (1996)

I was looking for something to do after retiring from a wonderful career as an educator. Many of the responsibilities I have are similar to those I had as a school, district, or state administrator. My hope is that my experience is a positive for the church. My father, Rev. Glenn Ailshie, was a bi-vocational minister for almost 50 years and I know he would be pleased that I am doing more to advance Christ’s Kingdom.
