My name is Dr. Ronnie Fullwood and I graduated from Pickwick Southside High School in 1973. At that time, Pickwick South Side included grades 1 – 12, and I attended all 12 years in that wonderful rural school. What great memories! Since the school was quite small, we all were just like one big family and the very caring teachers there would often work with students one on one. I even remember some of my classmates in elementary school that would fall behind academically and they would go to the teachers’ home during the summer to “catch up” with their school work.
I recall a very dedicated science and math teacher in high school: Mrs. Lewell Lee, and how well she prepared me for my pre-med degree in college. Mrs. Lee could teach biology, chemistry, and trigonometry as well as any college professor anywhere in the country. I received a double BS Degree in biology and chemistry from Lambuth College in 1977. With my academic background from Pickwick Southside and Lambuth College, I was able to continue my studies and ultimately receive a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Tennessee in 1981.
I currently practice dentistry in Selmer, Tennessee, raise black angus cattle on our family farm in Shiloh Tennessee, and after many years, continue to enjoy re-enacting Civil War history as a hobby.
