Barbara was educated in the Pittsylvania County Schools System. After graduation, Barbara found employment with Durham Hosiery Mills Inc. as an Inspector of Hosiery Products and was quickly promoted to Quality Control Inspector. With 15 years of experience and the impromptu closure of the mill, Barbara decided it was time to further her education. She obtained her Associate in Applied Science Degree in Administration Support Technology from Danville Community College.
She then went on to work for Dollar General Distribution Plant located in South Boston in the DOT (Distribution, Ordering, and Transportation) Department for eight years. Wanting to be closer to home, Barbara decided to join the Hargrave community as the Operations Clerk/ Transportation Coordinator. Barbara received Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year in 2012. She was also honored by the Yearbook Staff in the dedication of the 2016 Cadence. An even greater honor was given when she received The 2019 Spirit Of Hargrave Award. Barbara has since been the Operations Clerk/ Transportation Coordinator, here at Hargrave, since June 2006.
Barbara continues to wish everyone knew how great Hargrave is for the young men and the community.
