PINEVILLE, La. (LBM) – Adrienne Hetherwick has been selected as the new day school director for First Baptist Church in Pineville beginning in June.
In a unanimous committee vote, Hetherwick, a 2016 graduate of Northwester State University in Natchitoches, was chosen to serve as the school’s director. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and is presently working on a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in reading from Northwestern.
Since January 2017, Hetherwick has taught at Cherokee Elementary in Alexandria. She was voted as Cherokee Elementary Teacher of the Year for the school year 2018-2019.
“We are happy to have Adrienne join the ministry of First Baptist Day School as our next director,” said Stewart Holloway, pastor of First Baptist Pineville. “She possesses all the qualities to help us move our program forward and to continue the vital ministry of our Day School.”
First Baptist Church Day School began in 1968 and serves families with children six-weeks-old through Pre-K.
“Our faith-based program prepares children for a lifetime of learning. Our teachers lay an educational foundation ensuring children are ready to build on that foundation in elementary school,” continued Holloway. “First Baptist Day School also lays a Biblical foundation to help parents and local churches shape a new generation of followers of Christ.”
She is married to Thomas Hetherwick and the couple has a one-year-old son, Adler, with another baby due in November.
