After 37 years as a high school teacher, Wayne Pelts has graduated to college.
A graduate of Bluefield High School and Bluefield State College, he taught subjects that he was passionate about – World History, American Literature, and Speech. This was at Oakvale High School (15 years), PikeView High School (five years), and Bluefield High School (17 years).
His master’s degree was earned at the Graduate School of Education, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi (a degree program now offered at Covenant College).
He and his beautiful bride have four grown children, three are graduates of Covenant College, and one is a graduate of Marshall University.
Actively involved in Westminster Presbyterian Church, he serves as an elder, and his wife, Beverly, is Director of Children’s Ministries. A strong supporter of the Mercer County Bible in the Schools program, he serves that organization as chairman of the board of directors.
Wayne loves capturing moments of celebration and emotion with his camera, and has photographed weddings since 1989.
Twice a week, he tries not to pass out or die, as the “senior member” (polite, politically correct way of saying oldest member) of the Bluefield (Virginia) Cross Fit box.
