She graduated from Abilene Christian University with Honors and received the Dean Adams Achievement Award in May 2001. Her degree is in Multi-Disciplinary Studies.
Heather’s health issues never kept her from accomplishing things in her life. Heather is known as a WARRIOR and ENCOURAGER to her many friends and especially to her family. She was strong in her faith, always giving God praise, even in the hardest times. Her greatest accomplishment was raising her son Jevon Powers. She encouraged family and friends with loving, sometimes harsh truths, and in the midst of all she endured, she clung to the fact “GOD IS FAITHFUL”. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Heather was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents.
