My name is Shannon Pardue. My wife, Susan, and I have been married for 26 years and met at Lipscomb University with special assistance from Larson and Ruth Hudson. We have three daughters, Madison, Alex, and Ellen. Madison got married to Derek Dyer in November of 2021. She is attending PA school at The University of Kentucky and also served as a GP youth intern in 2021. Alex is a junior at Lipscomb University and is a member of the GP praise team. Ellen is a senior at South Warren High School and also a member of the praise team. I was previously a middle school educator for 5 years before joining the Bowling Green Fire Department in 2003. In 2016, I was promoted to Captain and joined the Training Staff; I now serve as Chief of the Training Division. I grew up here at Greenwood Park and returned with Susan and the girls in 2002. I became an elder in 2022.
