NOVICE CORNER
NOVICE CORNER

Meet Debbie Minyard who was born on October 8, 1958.  She grew up in Winona, MS.   Debbie earned a degree in Nuclear Engineering from Mississippi State University.  She then went to work for Georgia Power which then became Southern Nuclear.  Debbie used to enjoy sewing and gaming, mostly Dungeons and Dragons.  She also loved attending The Pennsic War which is an annual medieval re-enactment event organized by the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). She estimates attending about 30 times.  She was a support member with the American contingent for International Sword Fighting in France. After suffering her 2nd stroke, Debbie was left with limited capabilities on her right side.  She then looked to bridge to have something that was challenging and fun.  She had played bridge in college with her parents and her Mother played duplicate.  Debbie now lives with her brother who is 18 years her senior.  Stop and say hi to Debbie next time you see her at the club!
