Golliver likes Madison’s uniqueness and diversity

MADISON – Jamie Golliver loves Madison because he has worked here as an educator for 22 years.

“Madison has a unique quality … a combination of small-town characteristics mixed with rapid growth and development,” he said. “Madison’s diversity sets it apart and a definite reflection of the national motto, ‘E pluribus unum’ (Out of many, one).”

After growing up in Greenhill and Florence, Golliver enrolled at the University of North Alabama for a bachelor’s degree in secondary education. He received a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

In September 1996, he started teaching psychology and U.S. history at Bob Jones High School. He then taught civics, geography and world history at Liberty for 12 years until accepting the assistant principal slot at Liberty in 2012.

His wife Diana Golliver teaches pre-kindergarten at Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School in Huntsville.

“I have two daughters, Jocelyn Pettus (married to Seth Pettus) and Anna Belle Golliver. Jocelyn is finishing her medical assistant degree at Northwest-Shoals Community College. Anna Belle is preparing to enter UNA to major in secondary education and social science as I did,” he said.

“Jocelyn and Seth are expecting our first grandchild in August,” Jamie Golliver said.

“Diana and I both work with donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as well as donations for underprivileged children at Christmas,” he said. “It’s always important to help others.”

The Gollivers own Chihuahuas, Buffy and Ellie.

When he is listening to music, Golliver enjoys a wide array of music across various decades and genres.

“We enjoy eating and playing trivia at Casa Blanca and taking part in ‘Questionnary’ competitions at Bison’s,” he said.
