Martha Sales

I was born and raised in Franklin, Kentucky, a small town about 21 miles south of Bowling Green. I am married to Shawn Sales and we have a son Seth, age thirteen, and an eight-year-old daughter, Kiah. I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work with a Minor in African American Studies from Western Kentucky University. I also earned a Master of Arts in Counseling in Marriage and Family, an Educational Specialist Degree in Student Affairs, and a Women Studies Graduate Certificate.

I currently serve as Director of Western Kentucky University’s Educational Talent Search Program; this pre-college program assists middle and high school first-generation students in areas such as post-secondary choices, career choices, self-esteem, ACT preparation, financial aid and multi-cultural awareness. Not only do I teach Women Studies here at WKU, I also teach for the African American Studies Program. In addition, I serve as a consultant for several Bowling Green-Warren County community and educational agencies. I am an active member of the community—at the Loving Springs Baptist Church I serve as a musician, youth and young adult advisor, Sunday School teacher, and THE PASTOR’S WIFE!!! I am also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
