She taught many composition, literature, and rhetoric classes during her tenure at ECCS.
Before coming to ECCS, Beth earned her Master Degree at the University of Montevallo, Ala. and served as an adjunct teacher there. Her undergraduate degree in English is from Mississippi College.
Beth was an active member of Hunter Street Baptist Church in Hoover, Ala., where she was a teacher for Mission Friends, toddlers and preschool Sunday school, and adult Sunday school. Her favorite pastimes included reading, gardening, and traveling outside the United States.

Mitchell of Helena; one son, Ross A. Mitchell of Helena; brother, Kenneth A. Hall, Jr.; along with aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives. Beth was predeceased by her brother, Stephen Chad Hall.
