2012 Alumni,Wayne McCullough, Excels in NBLC

 

Wayne Mccullough, RCS class of 2012, and his team, the Moncton Magic, are one win shy of the Canadian Basketball League championship! The NBLC said of McCullough, "Wayne McCullough has done it all for the Moncton Magic this season. The wing has started and come off the bench playing several different roles. He has gone from being a defensive first player in the starting unit to being the go-to scorer off the bench and knocking down shots.  How McCullough has been able to switch his entire game on the dime is very impressive. But for him, it more about just doing whatever it takes to help his team win."  Wayne has continued to excel and enjoy the game ever since he graduated from RCS.

Teacher Spotlight: Wendy Potter

1.Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I was born in Tomball, TX, and grew up in Cypress, TX.


2.Tell us about your family.

My grandfather sold the first milking machines in this area and started a dairy on Jarvis Road to prove how well the machines worked.  He married my grandmother, a teacher, in Oklahoma before settling in this area. My parents were CyFair graduates, as was I, and my two girls. Both girls are now married, and I have two son-in-laws and five grandchildren.


3.When did you realize you wanted to become a teacher?

Late high school was when I realized teaching was my calling, much to my dismay at the time.  I really thought being an airline stewardess was the glamorous life I would lead until I found out there was a height requirement in the 1970’s.  I did have an inkling sooner though since several of my aunts and grandmother are teachers. It seemed to come naturally when I volunteered for summer Bible school. And I’ve always loved kids.


4.If you could have any other job, what would it be?

I can’t imagine a better job!


5.Who is your primary role model?

My mother when I was younger.  My daughter now that I am older.


6.What are your hobbies?

Reading, working puzzles, hanging out with my people


7.What is most rewarding about your job?

The little “aha” moments that turn into the “I get it now - this is easy” moments.  I get to spark a flame that someone else will help grow. Amazing!


8.If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?

Texas Hill Country


9.What is your all time favorite movie?

Mary Poppins  (Forrest Gump pulls a close 2nd)


10. What food is like a guilty pleasure to you?

Dark Chocolate


11.What is your favorite Bible verse/Bible character and why?

Colossians 3:23  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as to the Lord and not unto men.  

I love this verse since it reminds me that it is God who I should be trying to please at all times and that when I am working late hours it is for His glory.


12.What is the last book you read?

I read my Bible everyday as I enjoy the publications Our Daily Bread, The Upper Room and the devotional book Jesus Calling.  I am, also, reading The Dogs of Christmas that was left on my desk by a student with a note telling me I would love the book and it would make me cry.  So sweet!


13.What do you remember most about elementary, middle, or high school?

Elementary- I remember how much I thought my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Lawson, loved me because she wanted me to walk with her and hold her hand every time we transitioned.  Looking back, I realize she was just helping me to stay in line and not be silly. I love how she made me feel.

Middle School- In sixth grade, my girlfriends and I all decided we would change our names to boy names.  I was George all through junior high. I, also, remember, in eighth grade, dropping a nice ballpoint pen that belonged to a boy with whom I was flirting down the science sink by accident.  Needless to say, I didn’t bother flirting with him anymore.

High School- Besides excelling in math and finding it was a gift from God, I loved drafting and being a part of the Industrial Arts Club.  My senior year, I was voted president of the club.


14.What is a super power you think you have or would like to have?

A photographic memory would be awesome!  Actually, any improvement in memory would be great.


15.What is your biggest pet peeve?

Nameless papers!


16.Describe yourself in 3 words.

Loving, Fun, Accepting


17.What is your worst fear?

Crawly things . . . and mice


18. How long have you been teaching?

37 years.


19.Any advice for RCS students?

Remember God hears all and sees all.  But take comfort He loves you anyway.

Make every moment count.

Make a habit of reading the Bible each morning . Set a timer for ten minutes everyday for a week (Saturday and Sunday, too).  Then move the timer to 15 min. Before long, you won’t want the timer to go off. The peace it gives you will start your days off with a blessing.


20. Memorable Quote?

It’s not what you know, but who you know.

Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark.
