She graduated third in her class at Winterboro High School in Alpine in May 1979. Mrs. Stinson completed a two-year business and office education program at J. R. Pittard Area Vocational School and completed the executive secretarial program at New World College of Business in Anniston in 1981.
Mrs. Stinson's family has attended Cornerstone Worship Center (CWC) for the past 17 years. Her husband of 24 years, Sam, is a member of the CWC praise team and owner/operator of Stinson Howard Fine Jewelry. The Stinsons have two daughters, Leslie and Kristen, both of whom are JSU students and work on campus.
