The high school recently welcomed a new substitute, Dr. Terry Holden. To get to know him better, the LCM Bear Facts staff asked him a few questions.

Q. What was your profession when you started subbing?

A. I was a pastor of a church when I first began substituting.

Q. Why did you start subbing?

A. Subbing helped put food on the table.

Q. Where did you grow up?

A. I grew up in a small town in NE Oklahoma called Dewey. 

Q. Where did you go to college?

A.  I went to a community college for two years and finished a Bachelor of Business at the University of Oklahoma.

Q. What did you major in?

A.  I studied Music Education for Four years, before a throat injury ended my hopes of a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Education.

Q. Where have you traveled?

A. I am not all that well-traveled. The only country I have visited is Mexico. I HAVE visited or lived in Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington DC.  

Q. What have been the most difficult trials in your life?

A. When I retired from the Louisiana Association of Educators (NEA), I waited a year before seeking any jobs in education. It took me nearly two months to gain approval to do that, but I am sure it was worth the wait.

Q. Why did you choose to sub at LCM?

A.  I was moved by the kindness and helpful nature of the students, no less than four, who stopped to help me find my way around.  I said to myself, “I want to substitute on this campus!”
