Deborah was raised in Parkin, Arkansas where her parents farmed. She graduated from Parkin High School and holds a B.A. in interior design from the University of Mississippi. Dr. Ferguson graduated from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center Dental School and worked as a dentist in West Memphis for twenty-five years. 'I have been a working mother and small business owner. I recognized the need for quality child care, affordable higher education, and safe neighborhoods.' Deborah and her husband, Dr. Scott Ferguson, met on a blind date in college. They have been married for 32 years and have three children, Catherine, 29, Scott, 26, and Caroline, 20. They moved to West Memphis, Scott's home town, when they finished school and started medical and dental practices. 'I am enthusiastic about the future of Crittenden County. Scott and I have worked here and raised our family here. Now that my children are grown and I am retired from my dental practice, I am in a position to give back to the community that has given so much to us.
