She was honored with a State Student Council Advisor of the Year plaque. Mrs. Byers also worked for thirteen years as a School Counselor at Statesville High School, as well as the following SAT and ACT College Entrance Testing Coordinator, Teaching Fellows Coordinator and a 504 School Representative. Margie retired on June 30, 2003, after thirty-five years in the education field.
Mrs. Byers grew up a Presbyterian in Charlotte, but became a Baptist after meeting her best friend and love, Jonathan. With their union, she became a member of St. James First Baptist Church in Mooresville. At St. James, Margie poured her heart into several roles.

She also served as the Recording Secretary of the Association.
Margie also conducted sex education, Aids, Parent-to-Parent and College-Prep workshops at church and community groups. Her hobbies were sewing, holiday decorations, reading and cooking special desserts and casseroles. She loved her family, she loved to laugh, she loved to hold babies and she was a very kind-hearted lady.

I met Margie Carrouthers in the fall of 1963 when we both were freshmen at Barber Scotia College in Concord. We were classmates and friends. We became reunited when we graduated and I returned home and she came to Statesville to teach and married my high school classmate, Jonathan Byers. We remained friends and colleagues. She was a kind gentle lady and will be greatly missed! My sympathy goes to Jonathan, Children and Grandchildren!
