Frances Arthur settled in Middle Tennessee with her family in 1976. She had been in almost every other state prior to that since her parents were in the military. She well remembers watching Jimmy Carter being selected as the Democrat nominee for president that year since her family and she were very excited about a southerner being elected to the presidency! (Don't worry, this really changes direction before we're done) Frances graduated from Smyrna High School and went on to Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville to major in music education. In 1989 she married Dale Arthur. They have 2 sons, Benjamin, 23 and David, 19.
Once Mrs. Arthur had studied the issues and candidates, she saw that many of the people she had previously voted for did not have the same values that she had. Since 2000, Frances has been very conservative and followed issues concerning her family.
In 1998, Mrs. Arthur began homeschooling her son, Ben, in first grade. After 16 years as a home educator, their younger son graduated in May of 2015. Their older son, Ben, is currently a sergeant in the Army National Guard in the field of communications. David is in Parris Island, SC for Marine Corps boot camp. Her husband, Dale is a car hauler and works out of Bowling Green, KY. She works as a church outreach associate with TN Right to Life. In her spare time, she's a wedding and event planner
Frances is the Tennessee Eagle Forum Teen Eagle Leader.
