"MCS has changed my life. When I first set foot on campus, I knew I wanted to go to school here. The opportunities are immense at MCS, providing avenues for everyone to succeed."
Lacey Talbot Heath Class of 2000
After graduating from MCS in 2000, I attended Auburn University where I graduated cum laude in 2004 with a Bachelors of Science in Accounting. In 2005, I completed my Masters of Accountancy graduating suma cum laude from Auburn University. I sat for the Certified Public Accountant exam during the last semester of graduate school and passed the exam on my first attempt. After graduation in 2005, I moved to Birmingham and began working for Mauldin & Jenkins, CPAs. I have been at the firm for nine years and have served as Manager the past four years. I am looking forward to a promotion to Director this coming June. As a CPA, I specialize in performing audit and tax work for financial institutions. A close friend introduced me to Matthew Heath in May 2012, and we were recently married on October 26, 2013.
Since the founding of Mobile Christian School in part by my grandfather Paul Talbot, a strong education in a Christian environment has been a priority for my family. My own parents worked hard and sacrificed so that I and my two brothers could attend. MCS provided the required education and skills needed to allow me to transition easily into college and thrive. Several teachers and coaches were very influential in helping me to develop into the person I am today. If it wasn’t for Miss Liz Burris holding my hand in K-4, I would probably still be shy beyond measure. While attending MCS I learned the dedication and commitment needed to be successful in my life, and for that I will forever be grateful.
