AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SUPERINTENDENT L. ANDERSON
Superintendent Larry Anderson was born June 23, 1953 to the parents of William and Jennie Anderson. His mother told him that he was not breathing when he was born. She prayed to God and asked him to spare her son's life. God answered her prayer and put breath into his body. His father taught him that if you wanted something in life, work hard for it. He always told him, "you don't know what you can do until you try it." Superintendent Anderson's mother taught him and all of her children to live for Christ. These teachings of his parents stayed with him through the years, and are very important guidelines for him today.
