Becky Duffield

Board Chair

My name is Becky Duffield and I have been married to Rich since 2003. We are deeply committed to our local church fellowship called Simple Church. We have a 6th grader and 4th grader at Lakeside. Lakeside has been our choice for educating our children since 2015 and we appreciate the family environment and dedication to a Christian worldview perspective. I am honored to be able to serve the school in various ways, including being a board member since November 2020.  I am on staff with Athletes in Action and have a passion to share Jesus with athletes, coaches, and support staff at Morehead State University and to empower them to have a ministry of their own.

David White

Board Member

Married to Mary “Suzi” (Newsome) White since June 3rd 1995. We have been blessed with 2 girls and a boy. Their ages range from 7, 27, and 43 and are all adopted. I have had multiple jobs in multiple fields, and lots of college hours in multiple fields but eventually I became a CNA. Later, I became a CLA III Clinical Lab Assistant which is basically a phlebotomist with extra qualifications LoL! I worked in various labs for nearly 20 years and spent lots of that time working in ER’s. I am currently retired (due to forced disability) and being a husband, father, and part time gardener (in our yard). My religious background can best be described as New Testament Baptist. We currently attend Elliottville Baptist Church. I have made many mistakes since being Saved at 5 years old but found, through prayer and studying the Bible, that God’s Grace is sufficient regardless of the situation. (John 3: 16-17 & 2 Corinthians 12:9)
