Martha Huskins, Administrative Assistant

This is Martha’s third opportunity to serve as Ministry Assistant to the First Baptist congregation!  She worked at First Baptist initially in the early 90s and then again in 2002.  Martha has now retired from the State of North Carolina and has returned to First Baptist to conclude her career.  It has been said, “You can’t go home again,” but Martha feels like that is exactly what she has done by returning to First Baptist Church.  She has enjoyed renewing old acquaintances and making new friends.  

Martha is a graduate of Mars Hill University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management.  She worked for ten years as a teacher assistant with the Exceptional Children’s Program of Yancey County Schools and for another ten years as a financial aid advisor with Mayland Community College.

Martha is married to Roger Huskins and they live in the Newdale Community of Yancey County.  They have two daughters who are both married, and they have two grandchildren.  Roger and Martha enjoy camping, “junk hunting,” and river tubing, and are both avid antique tractor enthusiasts.  But the thing that Roger and Martha enjoy the most is spoiling their grandchildren, Lyla and Gabe!
