With a Masters Degree (MA) in School Psychology and Counseling, a Bachelor of Science (BS) and 6th Year Degree in Special Education, and Degree in Administration, she has used her experiences and education to develop a positive ministry through her community programs.
From education to gospel, she is without limitation. Pamela is hysterical about history. She is the family historian and author of several books about her family's history. PAMELA MONK has written several volumes for the ALL ROADS LEAD TO NEWTON GROVE, the History of the Monk Family series. The books are about the story of the amazing Monk Family from Newton Grove, N.C., but should be used as a tool to ignite a family centered dialogue about origin and pride.
