About Tammy Jones WestI grew up at Ascension Lutheran, Shelby and graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne College in 1991. I married Eric 24 years ago and we have one son, Robert 20 yrs who is a sophomore at UNC-Chapel Hill, and a cat named Pounce. In my leisure time I enjoy cooking (these guys can EAT!) and reading, anything but cleaning. I am a member at St. Luke's, Taylorsville. Fun fact - we have "Family Dinners" at our home each week for local young adults (mostly LR students but not always.) SO, if you have a student at LR, let me know and I'll include them in the invitation. I was commissioned as an Associate in Ministry in June of 2008 and graduated from Luther Seminary in May 2009 with a Masters of Arts in Religion - Children, Youth and Family. My passion is leadership development for all ages.
