Civil Miller-Watkins, 50, is a Hardeman County native who attended Bolivar city schools. Upon graduation from Bolivar Central High School, she attended the University of Tennessee at Martin where she received a B.S. in Sociology and a B.S. of Social Work.
Mrs. Watkins was involved in many job opportunities, including being a licensed real estate agent, when she elected to focus her career in Human Resources. After years in the workforce and being a Human Resource Director she realized that her family would be better served by being a stay at home mom and schooling her five children through the Tennessee Virtual Academy Home Schooling program. Her husband, Charles Watkins, Sr., supported this decision with pride and during Civil’s years schooling her children she has become an educational advocate for all children. Civil has also been elected by the Wolf River District of the Boy Scouts of America as their Vice-Chairman for the last three years.
Civil has entered the contest to become the State Representative of District 94 to continue her fight for a better educational system for the children of the District. As your State Representative, she is also committed to be a representative for all citizens of District 94 and bring the voice of the district to Nashville.
Civil will work with everyone in the district and Nashville to ensure that the issues of the area are addressed. Mrs. Watkins will focus on: solid education for our children; making college more affordable and vocational training available; creating jobs that attract our young adults to remain in the County; being sure our seniors are being treated fairly and equally, and having an effective government.
Civil has been married to Charles for 26 years. They live in Rossville and have eight children, Diondria, Adarian, Charles Jr., Solomon, Justice, Emeth, Chayil and Michlal. As well as four wonderful grandchildren. Charles’ mother also lives with them.
