Everett Stubbs makes the news as tour host of White House
Mr. and Mrs. Ira Shipp attended the marriage of Charles Shipp Jr., last weekend in Atlanta, Ga. The marriage was held in the downtown Episcopal Church with the reception at the Georgian Hotel.
Michael Garner left Friday, May 1, for Camp Shelby. His wife, Amanda, and their children, Mackenzie and Tyler, along with Betty Scott, Sandra Garner and Tina Fleming went to Pontotoc to see him off. How proud we all should be of him leaving behind his family to go and fight for all of ours! Good luck and come home safely.
If any of you watch “The View” (weekdays at 10 a.m. on ABC), you may have heard a familiar name or seen a familiar face during last Tuesday’s show. Holly Springs’ own Everette Stubbs, who has worked at the White House since 2006, gave a tour of the President’s home to co-host, Joy Behar. During Tuesday’s segment, Ms. Behar discussed the tour with co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. She passed out “goodies” she received while at the White House from Everette, and aired a video tape of her tour which included footage of Everette, her wonderful host!
In his position of deputy director of the Visitors Office of the White House, Everette has rubbed elbows with some of Hollywood’s most famous stars, including: Leonardo DiCaprio (most famous for his role in The Titanic), pop singer Fergie, Academy Award™ winner Forest Whitaker, PGA golfer Tiger Woods, Alan Alda (aka “Hawkeye” from M*A*S*H), actors Daniel Stern and Natalie Portman, and many others.
When you are fortunate to be raised in a small town such as ours, it is fun to watch as one of our own blazes a path of glory in the big city, as Everette has done. While remaining true to his Southern roots, Everette has found his own niche in the faced-paced metropolis of Washington, DC. He has always welcomed people from Holly Springs with open arms, and it is nice to know that one of our own is just a phone call away if needed.
We should all be proud of Everette and all he has accomplished - especially when, I am sure, he mentions to those who tour the White House that he is from “a small town in Mississippi called Holly Springs.”
