Polly grew up in Alma, Arkansas, came to Jonesboro to attend ASU in 1990, and was very active in the Church of Christ Campus Ministry where she met her husband.  Polly is married to Allen and they have two daughters, Lura Beth and Amie Jonette.  Because of the great experiences that she experienced at the campus ministry, she and Allen have always had a great passion for this ministry and see the huge importance to work very closely with them.  They have welcomed many students to their home and participated in their “Adopt a Student” program, where we have become “Mom and Dad” to many that still keep in touch.  Some of her greatest loves are greeting people and making sure they feel welcome.  She also has a great love for our little ones and mentoring young families and doing life alongside them.  She enjoys old movies (John Wayne movies are my favorite), coffee, hosting people in her home, family trips, learning the meaning behind a person’s name, making connections, cooking, and appreciates the small things such as a pretty package, good lipstick and a good pair of hoop earrings.
