    My name is Carla Russell; I am originally from Dothan, AL. I came to Tuscaloosa by way of a Basketball Scholarship to the University of Alabama. I played there from 1991-1995. I am a member of the ONLY women's basketball team, in the University's history, to ever play in the Final Four, in 1994. I am married to Levy Russell Jr, and we have two children, Olivia  and Levy III.  We attend Cornerstone Full Gospel Baptist Church, where we are all actively involved (Ministry of Music,  Security Ministry, Intercessory Prayer Ministry, and The Transportation Ministry).We enjoy all sports, movies, and just being together as a family.

    My intentions with our students are to plant seeds and water and nurture them throughout the school year. My prayer is that an environment is created, so they may Learn, Grow, and Achieve in all areas of their lives. 

     I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

    No weapon formed against me will be able to prosper. - Isaiah 57:17
