Fun fact: In college Maxine was voted 1st Runner up, Ms. Concordia College (Selma, AL) and 'Most likely to marry a Preacher". Although she didn't go that route, her role model was and continues to be the (philanthropic, family-oriented, entrepreneurial, trust-worthy, generous, foreword-thinking, hardworking) Proverbs 31 Woman. Maxine is a proud and doting mother of 2 young adults and in her spare time (whenever that is) she enjoys, traveling, working out, watching movies and shopping (any shoe-lovers out there?).
