Biographical Sketch: Barbara Pitts Everett is a southeast Alabama businesswoman, educator, and participant in many civic organizations.

Barbara Pitts was born in August 1946 in Webb, Alabama, grew up in Headland and Dothan, and graduated from Rehobeth High School. Before pursuing higher education, she partnered with her husband in the newspaper business, owning several weeklies beginning with Down Home Today and ending with Gulf Coast Media, Inc., from 1966 to 1988.
