I started teaching in 1987 at WES and have been here ever since, so this is home. I've coached sports on both the Jr. High and High School level. I also drive a bus and have had my Bus Licence since 1988. I received my BS degree in 1987 and my Masters in 1992, both from The University of Montevallo. Our Physical Education program was the State Champion in Physical Fitness in 2014-2016. I'm married to Christi Sherbett Lightsey and we have two daughters, Erica and Caitlyn. I'm also the President of the Board of Directors for Green Pond Fire Department and have been since 2005.
