She is a great teacher. She always puts her kids first and treats them as her own. She has a heart of gold and makes an impact on every child she comes in contact with. She is very deserving. She puts others before herself and lights up every room she is in. She has a heart of gold and is truly a gift from God.

She is my pastors wife and has become one of my best friends. She does so much. With 8 children of her own and now 2 grandchildren she not only teaches but spends every other second of her free time being a pastors wife which means visiting the sick. Attending every single event and funeral. She’s never missed a thing. We love her dearly.

CANDY IS THE BEST LADY I KNOW I COACHED 10U Soccer and she was always leaning a helping hand...She has also been a foster parent to over 10 children and a wonderful loving per-k teacher my kids love her ...

Tammy McSwain Posted over a year ago

I have known Candy for over 12 years. Her husband served as my pastor, and she became my best friend in no time. Candy has more faith than anyone I know, and she truly has the gift of hospitality. She welcomes everyone into her home, and once there, they are a part of her family. I will never forget the day I was sitting in a workshop in Rome when I got the text, "You're going to think I'm crazy, but God told me I was supposed to have Tim". Thus began her true foster and adoption journey. She and her husband have adopted 2 family members and 5 young men who are not related to her. They also have 2 children of their own. They have had several children as temporary placements, and she would keep them all if she could. (She also has 4 cats and 3 dogs, so she welcomes all strays!) Candy has always made me feel like one of her family, and there are many others who feel that way. She handles a room full of 4 year olds daily, and many of those are special needs. If she cannot reach the child, the child probably cannot be beaten. No one deserves this honor more than my best friend, and I am blessed to have her as my best friend!

Candy McAdams has to be the most selfless individual I know. She always has others best interest at heart, especially children.the kids that other people give up on, she embraces. She goes above and beyond and never leaves her job at the school house, but brings the thought of every child home with her. If anyone deserves this it's candy McAdams.

Ashley Padgett Posted over a year ago

All three of my boys have had Mrs. McAdams as their teacher! I also know her children and she definitely deserves this more than any teacher that I know!

Karen Stephens Posted over a year ago

My child was in Mrs. Mcadams room 7 years ago. She is an awesome Teacher, she will go above and beyond for anyone. I have also worked as her parapro for 4 years. She has a heart bigger than anyone I know. She is awesome with the kids and they each have a special place in her heart. After she leaves work, she goes home to 8 children, most of them has been adopted.
