Meet the Library Staff!
Ms. Bervoets is a lifelong Bobcat, graduating from JOHS in 1983. She also graduated from UT Knoxville (Go Big Orange!) and has a collection of graduate degrees, including a J.D. from Nashville School of Law -- because she’s a nerd. She worked as an elementary librarian for almost 15 years before transitioning to high school. She loves reading (especially romantic comedy and non-fiction), listening to music (especially live and outdoors!), laughing (all the time!), and using exclamation points!!!!

Mrs. Winningham grew up in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia, graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelors' degree in education, and a Masters' degree in Library Science from Trevecca Nazarene University. She taught elementary school for nine years and then spent three years in a middle school library before making the move to high school. She's married to an Overton alumnus, and all four of her children will graduate from Overton as well. Some of her favorite things include the mountains, the beach, Star Wars, Labrador retrievers, sewing, laughing, and being outdoors in the sun. Her favorite genres to read are historical fiction and fantasy, and she knows that the greatest magic in the world is kindness!
