Before coming to Sandhills almost 10 years ago, Richmond Senior High School graduate Teresa Taylor worked for 24 years as a cost accountant at Sara Lee Hosiery in Rockingham. She began as a financial aid assistant and, after one year, became the college’s VA certifying official. Each day she assists veterans, their dependents, and active duty spouses and dependents by helping them determine how to best use their VA benefits. Teresa also guides them to other means of financial aid, which can include applying for scholarships or becoming a college work study student.
“The people who work here at Sandhills really do care about the students and do everything possible to help them succeed,” said Teresa. “It makes me happy to be able to help our students to work toward their future.”
Teresa has been married to recently retired Hamlet Police Department Patrol Captain Steven Taylor for 41 years. They have two daughters and four grandchildren.
