Friday Feature: Ashley McCallister

We are high school sweethearts, and both graduated from Texas Tech. This is year 10 for us. We started at Coahoma (4 years), Idalou (4 years), and Abernathy (2 years). We have two children: Nolan (8), Annie (4). Ryan accepted an AD position last year, but ultimately withdrew after a couple of weeks because we didn’t have the best feeling about it. We ended up right where we needed to be but he is having to start over it feels like. We have seen the good, bad, and ugly of this lifestyle, but I can’t see us doing anything else.
