Couple #9: Lynn Hayes and Pat McCallen
Lynn is one of our returning dancers from both 2016 and 2017. She was born in Atlanta, but grew up in New Orleans. She always loved the music and dancing so prevalent in the city. After attending college, she received an MAT from Emory University and taught history and English for five and a half years.
After raising two children, she returned to the school setting and registrar at Marietta Middle School until she retired in 2014. Dancing was a big part of her life and she participated in the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society and later took ballroom dance lessons for a few years. She’s looking forward to participating in Dancing with North Georgia Stars again in 2018.
Pat grew up in the small town of Latrobe Pa. After school and the military, he went to work for a company that transferred him to Georgia in 1981. He started coming to the North Georgia Mountains in 1999 and fell in love with the area. After moving to the area, Pat started ServiceMaster in 2004. ServiceMaster specializes in residential and commercial disaster restoration. He then started the local Glass Doctor franchise in 2013 which handles just about all of your glass needs from auto to commercial to residential: “We Can Fix Your Panes.”
