Crystal Hutchens Fain, a 2004 graduate of Ferrum College with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science and a minor in Religion.  After working in the field for several years, I found my true passion in teaching at which point in time I went back to school and completed my Master’s of Science in Education with a specialization in Earth Science.

I now teach 9th grade Earth Science and upper level Forensic Science at Patrick County High School, my alma mater.  I am also the Scholastic Bowl Science team coach.


I was married in 2007 to Douglas Lee Fain, Jr and we have two sons, Mason who was born in April of 2009 and Elijah who was born in December of 2012. I cherished my time spent at Ferrum and feel lucky to still live within 30 minutes of the campus to visit when I can.
