She graduated from Mansfield Business College and recently graduated from South University at age sixty-three. She also attended Midlands Technical College in the Registered Nursing Program. Mrs. Evans believes she always wanted to be a nurse when she was younger, because when someone would get a splinter in their hand or fall on their knee, she was always the one they called on.
