As a little girl, Robin Pendleton was fidgety sitting inside when it rained. She wanted to get outside on the softball diamond or the tennis courts.
So she wasn’t always happy with Habersham County recreation officials when they determined it was too wet to play.
“I was one of those kids that whenever they canceled ballgames, my friend Patty and I, we’d get on our bikes and ride to the ball field, and we’d say, ‘We could have played ball,’” said Pendleton.
As Pendleton got older, she stayed close to the recreation department, serving as a lifeguard and a scorekeeper. She graduated from Habersham Central and went to Young Harris, spending time outside of class with the intramural leagues. She then got a bachelor of science degree in recreation at Georgia Southern in 1984.
