Rosanna Hightower


My philosophy in life is the same as it was when I was a new born Christian at 17 years of age.
“We’ve only one life, t’will soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

I enjoy my work with Western Christian Academy. I am happily married to my best friend and a wonderful Christian man. I have two grown sons, two step daughters, plus thirteen grandchildren. I have a bilateral deafness of 90%. By utilizing hearing aids, an FM system and SKYPE, I can remain a productive member of Western Christian Academy. My husband is legally blind. He serves as my ears and I serve as his eyes. A disability does not define us; it expands us.

I graduated from Stuttgart American High School in Germany, where my father was stationed in the military. I attended Calhoun Community College, Faulkner Junior College, Cuesta College, and the University of Vienna with a major in Business Management. During my time overseas, I served as a missionary to Eastern Europe and Austria for 7 ½ years, smuggling Bibles and ministering to children and women in these countries through teaching Sunday school and leading Bible Studies.

I have had the awesome responsibility and privilege to serve as the school registrar at Western Christian Academy for the past ten years. Additionally, I am the editor of the Facebook page and monthly newsletter. In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, quilting, crocheting and embroidery. I love to cook and enjoy experimenting with new recipes.
