Stanley closing in on four decades teaching Sunday School


In 1972 Don Stanley began teaching Sunday School and 39 years later is still doing so for the Truthseekers, a class of 80 senior adults at Cleveland First Baptist Church. Currently Cleveland’s mayor, Stanley previously served for 21 years as senior vice president at Truett-McConnell College, where he was also professor of accounting, economics, and business law for 12 years. His wife, Rusty, is the Truthseekers’ class president and heads up the Red Cross blood drive for the church.
