Hello My Name Is...

Helen McKnight

I was born October 20, 1969 to William and Bessie Black.  I was the tenth of eleven children, three boys and eight girls.  I attended Bellwood Elementary, Central Middle, and Oakland High School.  I also attended TSU before returning home to finish at MTSU.  I married my high school sweetheart, Greg McKnight.  We have one son, Gregory Allen Jr.  He is affectionately known as A.J.

     My faith and my family are the most important things to me.  I attend Olive Branch Church.  Working on spiritual growth helps me to be a better wife, mother, sister, friend, and teacher.

     I enjoy reading and anything that has to do with photography.  I like to  create and decorate.  I love to cook.  Most of my free time is spent supporting my son in his many endeavors.  He recently graduated from UT Martin.  He will begin mortuary school this fall at Gupton College.  He's moving back in!  Pray for us!

     My favorite colors are red and purple.  I love sports. College football is my favorite.  I do, however love my TITANS!  ESPN, MSNBC, and CBS are my favorite channels.  I can’t live without my CSI(s). I also like to travel.  My goal is to visit all fifty states.  I have about thirty down and about twenty more to go.  That’s why I need longer summers off!
