When you first meet Ricky Fernandez, he comes across as a soft-spoken, respectful Southern gentleman. But, that gentle first impression hides a few secrets.
Fernandez spends his days teaching elementary students in Cherokee County and his evenings as a licensed funeral director and embalmer.
While in high school, Fernandez had an interest in funeral service. Upon graduating from Jonesville High School, he researched programs and, at that time, the only option available to him was to attend Gupton-Jones in Atlanta.
