Billy and Donna Beard have much to celebrate. Their daughter Ana-Lee Murphy has received her master’s degree in social work from the University of Alabama. Her husband, Roman Murphy, received a B.S. degree in management of information systems from the College of Business at the University. Their son, Matthew Beard, will graduate soon from DAR High School.
Talen Gurley, who will be a sophomore at DAR next year, has been accepted for dual enrollment at Northeast Alabama College. This means that will be taking college classes at the same time that he attends high school.
