Misty Bettey begins her second full year as the Activities Secretary. Misty has called Greene County home since 1996. She is a 1995 graduate of Adair-Casey and has a degree from DMACC (2012) and Buena Vista (2014). She brings the unique perspective of being a non traditional student to her work and is able to share that perspective with students.
Her favorite quote is a quote by Anita Septimus that says "You don't choose the day you enter the world and you don't choose the day you leave. It's what you do in between that makes all the difference." Misty adds that "every day I make an effort to make a difference, even if it is something as small as sharing a smile or a laugh - which often can lead to a big difference."
Misty has three adult children, Kyle, Kelli and Emily who are all GCGS alumni and she enjoys spending time with them and traveling.
