This week, we're featuring faculty member Darrell Huckaby.
He'll be teaching Columns
Born and raised in the North Georgia mill village of Porterdale, Darrell Huckaby now lives in Conyers with his wife, Lisa, and their three children, Jamie, Jackson, and Jenna.
He teaches AP US History and Current issues at Heritage High School and his syndicated newspaper columns appear in a number of papers across the state. The What the Huck? Commentary can be heard on the Moby in the Morning radio show every Wednesday morning at 7:50.
A proud graduate of the University of Georgia, Huck is the author of ten books and travels extensively across the South, speaking to church and civic organizations as well as corporate functions.
His down home humor and unique reflections on life in the South “the way it was, the way it used to be, and the way it ought to be” make him a favorite with his readers and on the banquet circuit.

One of my novels, SPACE, published two years ago, that just went to #3 on the Barnes and Noble National Best Seller list. Two others are National best sellers as well, HOMEFIRES and UNTO THESE HILLS, all published by Story Plant. And just this month, I had another novel release entitled TWILIGHT TIME. This is my eighth Story Plant title. All these can be ordered from Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble and actually through any online or local bookstore.
