About Carol Waymire
After working as an elementary school counselor in Texas, I started teaching at FHU in 1978. I counseled, worked with freshmen and taught classes for 21 years and then I took off eight years while doing mission work in Aruba with my family. I was the school counselor at the International School of Aruba and I also taught and was the counselor for the University of Aruba, Hospitality Faculty. In 2007, I returned to FHU as a freshmen advisor, director of retention, and an associate professor in education, teaching in the graduate school counseling program. I now direct the graduate school counseling program.
I have two grown sons that live in Nashville and I have three grandsons, and two granddaughters. I also have a daughter that is a teacher and in a Spanish missions group in Florida. My husband is the Missions and Involvement Minister at the Broad St. Church of Christ in Lexington, TN. He was the missionary in residence and has taught adjunct Bible/Missions class here at FHU. For several years, he has taken trips to Haiti and has started a preacher training school there.
I enjoy traveling, going on mission trips, laughing, reading, gardening, and hunting for bargains. I love being with my family.
I am a certified SCUBA diver and I have visited 46 out of 50 states and various countries. I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean, working with the church. I was even blessed to be able to visit Cuba when the Caribbean Lectureship was held there. I drove on the left side of the road in rush hour traffic in London, England and I visited Table Mountain in South Africa.
