Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Born about 1957, the black female Fort Lauderdale, FL native is
a graduate of Dillard High and received her BA Degree in English/Literature from Florida
State. She has been officiating football for over 10 years and last year (2001), she made her
collegiate debut on the Division III level. She lives in Margate, Fla.
She has survived left breast cancer in 1990, right
breast cancer in 1993, and a grapefruit-sized tumor in 1995. Her blood pressure got so low
during the first surgery that she almost died. She's had at least 30 surgeries. At the
suggestion of her godfather, Tyson Jones (then football commissioner of Broward Co.,
Fla.), she started officiating in 1990 at the youth level. She especially ran into gender
prejudice as a woman (and, being myself white, I'm confident that she ran into a layer of
racial prejudice). She became the first female official to work an NCAA Division I football
game 31 August 2002. "When I was out there on the field, I started thinking about it; and I
thanked The Lord for being here."
CONTEXT: As we contemplate race and gender prejudice, I would note that she broke this barrier in the deep South! She officiated in Columbia, S. C. 7 September 2002. See
