I grew up in Fayette County, AL.  My father, Radford Hester, is the principal at Fayette County High School.  My mother, Connie Hester, is a 7th grade science teacher at Fayette County Middle School.  My sister, Leigh Hester, teaches high school science and biology at Clements.  My brother, Gabe Hester, is currently in his last year of medical school at UAB.  I grew up playing baseball and football.  I went to college at UNA, graduated and taught school at Aliceville for a year.  I then got married to my lovely wife Amy.  After marriage Amy, myself, and my two step-children, Dylan and Abby, lived in Shelby County for a year.  In 2006 I took the job at East Limestone and my family and I have been here since.  We love East and hope to stay forever.
