Bettie taught at Central Piedmont from 1975-1979 and returned in 1994 as the Substance Abuse Program’s chair, a position she held until she died unexpectedly in 2008. Bettie trained countless substance abuse counselors currently practicing in the area and she left an indelible mark on all whom she touched.
