Liz is active in teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School.  She loves the Lord Jesus and her faith is evident in her interactions with others.

Carol graduated from Marshall University, in West Virginia in 1970 with a B.A. Degree in Library Science and Art.  I began my career in Virginia then worked in Schweinfurt, Germany for the Dept. of Defense as a Counselor for American servicemen in 1974.  After that returned to Huntington, W.Va. to receive a Master’s Degree in Educational Media from Marshall University.  I taught for 34 years in North Carolina, Ohio, and Florida. I am married to Gary Fisher and have one loving son, Scott, 39, who lives in Portland, Oregon and one beautiful daughter, Melissa Swim, who is married to Greg Swim and three wonderful granddaughters Olivia, Harper, and Kinsley. In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, swimming, and photography. I feel blessed every day to be a Teacher at Victory VPK with such an inspirational, energetic team full of love for our VPK children and sisters in Christ.  The children bring such joy to our lives.  There’s such an excitement each day at Victory VPK.  This is our calling.
