Ceci grew up in Little Rock, Ark., and Macon, Ga., and graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in accountancy. After spending two years teaching at a local preschool, Ceci joined the FPDS staff in 2018. She and her husband, Bryan, have two children, Christy and Ric, who attend FPDS, and two children who are FPDS alums, Maggie and Rachel. “I am so grateful for the Biblical foundations my children receive at FPDS. The Christian influence and worldview are invaluable. I’m excited to be a part of this Christian environment where our children are raised ‘in the nurture and admonition of the Lord,’” she says. The Rutledges attend First Presbyterian Church, and Ceci enjoys tennis, organizing, traveling, and spending time with family.
