No Stranger to Stern Discipline

In Uncategorized on September 28, 2009 at 8:59 am

As the 8th of 12 children, seemingly Command Sergeant Major Teresa King was groomed to be where she is today. As the daughter of sharecroppers, “stern discipline” is a friend of King. As a child, she learned to “give a hard day’s work for whatever I earned and take no short cuts.” This lesson, and many more, is passed along to others through King’s new job–the first female to head the school of drill sergeants at the largest Army installation. Lt. Colonel Dave Wood, King’s battalion commander, said of King: “She’s got this unique way of dealing with soldiers where she can be correcting them, but it’s in a manner that they’re wanting to please her and wanting to do the right thing. It’s not degrading to them.”
