Doctor Mom

By Mort Crim  
 Life got off to a rocky start for Shirley. She was expected to be valedictorian at her rural Tennessee high school, but then her parents divorced and Shirley dropped out of school. She waited

tables, worked the desk at a local motel, sold some insurance. Eventually, Shirley married a man named Clell . A fter he returned from Vietnam they had two children. Life might have settled into a humdrum routine, but Shirley would have none of it.

She’d never given up her dream of completing school, but not just high school. Now, thirty years later, Shirley has a new title in front of her name: Doctor. How did this high school dropout manage to earn a medical degree? With courage, determination, and wonderful support from her husband.

Clell says that when Shirley made the decision to enter medicine it was like somebody turned on the light. She passed a G.E.D. test, then took two years of community college, four years of pre-med and, finally, medical school—all the while fulfilling her role as both wife and mother. After three years of residency, Dr. Shirley Trentham plans to set-up a family practice in her hometown of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Great works are performed not by strength, But by perseverance.
