I am originally from Marion, South Carolina. I graduated from Pee Dee Academy  in 1985. My parents, Nancy and Jerry Poston, live in Lexington. I have one son, who attends RBHS and is involved in basketball and soccer.  Sammi, is our long haired dachshund pup.  My hobbies include reading, biking, walking the dam, and following my son’s athletic adventures.
