First Lady Tarasha Williams
Tarasha Williams was born on July 16 in Clanton, Alabama. She was born to a wonderful young woman named Margie Nelson. Being that her mother was a senior in high school at the time of her birth, she had two great grandparents that legally adopted her to allow her mother to go to college; the late Elijah Goodwin and Marzell Goodwin. Tarasha accepted God into her life at an early age and was a member of the Oak Grove Baptist Church in Plantersville, Alabama, where her grandfather served as the chairman of the Deacon board, and she served as Sunday School Teacher and piano player for several years. Tarasha attended elementary and high school at Maplesville High School. After graduating, she attended The University of Alabama where she received a degree in Special Education and later obtained two Masters Degrees; Health Studies and School Counseling. She has a love for children and and has taught/counseled in school systems for the past fourteen years in Alabama, Georgia and currently Louisiana. Tarasha has two biological children, Makayla & Chloe, a set of adopted twins that currently reside with their mother in Georgia, Jaylon & Jazlyn, and
Tarasha attributes her determination and skills as a committed Godly woman, to her role models: the only father-figure in her childhood life, her Grandfather, the late Elijah Goodwin; her wonderful mother, Margie Nelson; and her sweet, God-fearing Grandmother, Marzell Goodwin. She has gone through many trials and heartaches in order for God to allow her to finally live her "fairytale" life. In October 2012, she was united in marriage to her God-sent husband, Kevin M.A. Williams, Sr., and through this union, she not only obtained a wonderful husband, but she was also blessed with four more beautiful children.
