Melinda McDowell – K5

Mrs. McDowell graduated from Appalachian State University with a BA degree in Elementary Education. She has been teaching since 1998, serving the Lord the last 10 years at Vandalia. She coaches the JV Cheerleading Squad and assists her husband with their youth group at church. They have three children.
Mrs. McDowell’s life’s verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
She feels God’s call on her life is to minister to young people, kindergarten through teens, to equip them with the tools to live a Christ-like life. Her desire is to be a living example before them to further the Kingdom of God.
