Denise DeBoer’s life reflects the things she loves. One is her love of people. She has been the Student Tutor Coordinator for the Corinth-Alcorn County Literacy Council since July 2012. She was led to her current career path after helping a man who approached her in the grocery store to help him read food labels. In her native Michigan, DeBoer worked as an EMT Specialist for many years and in Maintenance at General Motors for 29 years. Another thing DeBoer loves is animals. She recently moved to Falkner where she has chickens and guinea hens on six acres. “I am a farm girl at heart,” she said with a smile. DeBoer is the mother of two adult children - Peter, a Michigan resident, is a CPA student, and daughter, Jacquelyn, a local resident, is a nursing student at NEMCC.
