Haywood County's REDI team is ready and able!
The team in Haywood County consists of two very capable individuals... Cedric Deadmon and Abby Nichols.
Cedric Deadmon, SWTDD's REDI College Access Coordinator, is a graduate of Bolivar Central High School and Lane College. He's been a part of West Tennessee for a very long time AND he is very passionate about the need for post secondary education for rural West Tennessee's youth. Willing to go to exceptional lengths to help a child succeed in the college/technical school enrollment process, Cedric is a determined asset to all the youth in this region -- but especially the in the counties of Crockett, Decatur, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, and Tipton where he is the "official" coordinator for the REDI program.
Abby Nichols has been working as a volunteer graduation coach in Haywood County Schools for three years. She’ll continue her work in Haywood County and also will be working with the high school seniors in Crockett County to help them complete the application/enrollment process for college or technical school. Abby is a graduate of Ole Miss, was a pharmaceutical representative for eight years, is an identical twin, and has a six-year-old daughter and four-year-old son.
The local REDI coordinator for Haywood County is:
