Furthermore, she was selected for inclusion in the fifth and sixth editions of Who's Who in American Education. Now in retirement, Ms. Newton resides in Arkansas with her loving husband of five decades, Albert Lee Newton, with whom she has raised two wonderful children, Penelope and Hunter. She is also a doting grandmother to two beloved grandchildren, Madalyn and Fischer.
