Teacher/Faculty Spotlight
"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."  From her high school days at Christian County High School, Mrs. Julie Gilliam could be found in the Ag Greenhouse so it's no surprise that you'll often find her in the TCCHS greenhouse.  Mrs. Gilliam is married with three beautiful girls, and a son.  She enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, when she's not having wild parties with FFA and watermelon eating contests.  We are blessed to have Mrs. Gilliam as part of our faculty at Todd Central.
