Carolyn B. Prescott, Retired Educator at Blevins Elementary School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in elementary education.
Ms. Prescott had always loved to work with children in various mediums and upon choosing her career path, she decided to enter the realm of education. Backed by a Bachelor of Science from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas from 1979, she went on to become a certified special education teacher in the state of Arkansas. Ms. Prescott commenced her career as a high school special education teacher in Blevins, Arkansas for six years before transferring to Blevins Elementary School. There, she had taught second grade for four years, sixth grade for three years, and fourth grade for 13 years up until her notable retirement. Looking back, Mr. Prescott most enjoyed conducting spelling bees and helping each child learn something new.
In addition to her primary teaching roles, Ms. Prescott had also served as a Sunday school and ladies adult class teacher at her local church for 10 years, where she doubled as a choir singer. A renowned singer, she recorded her own album in the 1980s, featuring the songs, “Going Back to Arkansas,” “Nobody Wanted Granny,” “My God is Greater” and “Happiness.” When she is not singing, Ms. Prescott also enjoys her crafts, yard work, and occasionally scrolling through Facebook. Despite already being settled into her retirement, she remains a member of the Retired Teachers of Arkansas and is a lifetime member of the Miller County Master Gardeners, located in Texarkana, Texas, with 15 years of service. To attest to her legacy, Ms. Prescott can also be found in the fifth edition of Who’s Who in American Education.
