Meet Mrs. Heather Drusky
Heather Drusky is from Paducah, Kentucky. She attended college at Murray State University where she was active in gymnastics for all four years and was a member of multiple campus associations. Her fondest memory was performing at Disneyworld with her team. After graduating with a Marketing degree she moved to Gallatin Tennessee and began working in the newspaper industry where she ultimately became Publisher and President of a group of Newspapers across Sumner County.
While working full time, Mrs. Drusky started her own gymnastics business (Hudson Cheernastics) where she taught gymnasts for schools across Sumner County. After joining Highland Seventh-day Adventist church, she closed Hudson Cheernastics to start a gymnastics program for Highland Elementary. Her first “Tumble Crew” team had 12 students; now 12 years later the average team size is 30 students.
Mrs. Drusky’s professional experience lies in marketing. She has managed the marketing accounts of banks, automotive dealerships, restaurants, and most recently Highland Elementary. Since chairing the Marketing Department for Highland Elementary her team has updated our school logo, started our annual Winter Carnival Event, created and maintaining the H.E.S. Facebook page, produced a promotional video, placed multiple advertisements, and she said she is "just getting started."
Mrs. Drusky taught Art concepts and Art History at Highland Elementary last year and will be returning to teach Art again this year. Pulling from her newspaper and marketing experience, she offered a Newspaper Layout and Design course last year. She and her class enjoyed publishing a quarterly newspaper that illustrated how art can translate into professional careers.
Mrs. Drusky enjoys spending time with her husband, Tad and their two dogs. They enjoy traveling together and have explored such places as Tahiti, Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, and Europe!
Mrs. Drusky has earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and is looking forward to teaching seventh and eighth grade.
