Sturdivant was born to Earlene Hatcher and George Clark 37 years ago in Selma at The Baptist Hospital.

She’s spent the past six months working as a teller at Wachovia Bank. The bank was SouthTrust when she began.

“I love working at Wachovia,” Sturdivant said. “It’s making a great impact on the community.”

Sturdivant has raised – and is raising – four children with her husband, Arthur, a supervisor at Globe Metallurgical. Their children include Cedric, 18, Summer, 9, Arthur Jr., 5, and Autumn, 1.

She’s also persistently garnered education.

The Selma High School graduate went on to earn an associate degree in business from Troy University.

Currently, she’s a student, working towards a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

“I’m going to go on and get my master’s in psychology from Troy,” Sturdivant said. “I’d like to have a practice in Selma. I like the familiarity of the town. The coziness of it and the simplicity.”
