Always a straight A student, Mary Ellen attended all grades through high school in Moultrie, Georgia, graduated from the University of Georgia in 1957, and then became a French teacher at the highly accredited Glynn Academy in Brunswick, Georgia – the town Mary Ellen would call home for the rest of her life. In Brunswick, Mary Ellen met James A. (Jake) Christian.
