I graduated from Mississippi State in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science.


After college I worked for BellSouth Services for 6 years.  I have also worked for two different universities, Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA and Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, AR.  At both of these universities I worked in the Computer Services Departments.  At Henderson I also worked in the Institutional Research Department.  I began my job here at Centerhill Elementary in the Fall of 2011.




My name is Rice' Swede.  I am a Columbus, MS native and I attended Mississippi State University.  After college I married my husband, Greg, and we moved to Alabama.  We have lived in Olive Branch for 11 years, the longest we have lived anywhere!  He works for International Paper so we have lived in 6 different towns and 5 states over the past 25 years. 

We have 3 children, Bradley and Shelby who are twins, and Jimmy.  We also have a precious Havanese dog named Lucy. Bradley and Shelby will be seniors in college this fall and Jimmy is in the 10th grade at Olive Branch High School.  All 3 of my children are involved in sports: baseball, football and cheerleading.  We spend LOTS of time at the ballparks and football fields!

This is my fifth school year at CHES and I am excited to be here!  I love having each one of your children in my lab every week.  I hope that each student will learn something new during their time in the Computer lab.
