A 1974 Crater High graduate, Debbie was an involved and energetic rally squad member each of her four years at Crater. This involvement and energy has continued for the past 40 years as she is arguably Central Point’s most active and productive citizens in her unwavering support of the community and Central Point businesses.
She has been labeled with the title of Community Advocate, but that is just an inkling of all she has done to promote Central Point. Some of those support activities include: organizing the first Central Point 4th of July fireworks program, starting the very popular “Adopt a Street” program, initiating the Blue Light program to honor the Central Point Police department and officers, starting and running two Facebook pages to promote and assist the community, and promoting the “Community Cash Jobs” where the community is asked to patronize a chosen business that needs the community support to just keep their business going.
Debbie has been honored as Central Point Citizen of the Year, Central Point 4th of July Grand Marshal and the Mail Tribune honored her as a recipient of the “Hero’s of our Valley” award.
Debbie has worked in the furniture business most of her adult life, starting with the family business, Saxbury Furniture, for many years a Central Point fixture. She is currently working for Ashley Furniture.
