About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Law and Political Studies and the program coordinator for FHU's Law and Politics major. I have been teaching full-time at Freed-Hardeman since 2002.

I was born and raised in Amory, Mississippi, where my father, Holace, was the school superintendent, and my mother, Mary Jo, was a teacher/librarian. I grew up with two younger brothers, Jake and Chuck. I earned my undergraduate and law degrees from Ole Miss, and while there I met my wonderful wife, Joyce. We have two fantastic children at FHU  – Mary Beth Wallace, who works in Admissions, and Ben, a junior finance major. My family and I are members of the Henderson church of Christ, where I serve as an Elder, song leader and Bible class teacher.

While practicing law for 12 years in Tupelo, Mississippi, I also taught courses in paralegal studies as an adjunct for Ole Miss. I began teaching as an adjunct for FHU in 2001 and knew I had found my ministry.  I enjoy teaching a wide variety of courses, and I am excited to be coordinating FHU’s (relatively) new major in Law and Politics. I sponsor the FHU College Republicans and the FHU Law Society, and I’ve been Chairman of the Chester County Election Commission since 2009. I have also served as the University's part-time, in-house legal counsel.

In addition to history, politics and law, I enjoy coffee, books, music, classic movies, cooking, and visiting new places. I am also a fan of science fiction, fantasy, and comic books (for the thinly veiled political commentary, of course). I am unapologetically conservative, and I am not quite as old as I apparently look...
