Tammie’s earliest memories involve Clyde.  Best were trips to the grocery with Grandma McIntosh who did not drive, so Oak Street was a well-traveled footpath.  Much time has passed since those preschool days, including graduation from Hamlin High School, attendance at West Texas State University, marriage, and birth of 3 children.  1992 brought the family home to Clyde to occupy the McIntosh homestead.  Completion of baccalaureate studies in nursing occurred at McMurry University once all the children were in various Clyde schools.  The following years included much caring for cancer patients, parenting of teenagers, single life and eventually marriage to Terry Coffman.  How two people with three generations of Clyde roots did not intersect prior to 2004 is a mystery!  Graduate study at Hardin Simmons University resulted in master’s degree in nursing (2012) and Doctorate in Education in Leadership in Higher Education (2017).  Tammie is currently teaching the next generation of nurses at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Abilene.  Giving back to the community and coming generations is high priority and great joy for both Tammie and husband, Terry.
