Angel Tuggle & Taylor Zuercher


Angel Tuggle

Angel Tuggle has always wanted to dance, just ask her parents. So when asked to participate in DWTS to raise money for the Harold S. Swindle Public Library and the Jackson County Arts Council, she couldn’t refuse.

A Gwinnet native, Angel made Jackson County her home 5 years ago. She earned the prestigious title of UGA Alumni in 2003 and a Masters of Library & Information Science in 2013. After managing libraries in both Barrow and Walton County, she found a home at the Nicholson Library in November of 2013. Since then, she has worked hard to fulfill the library’s mission to create young readers and foster lifelong learning by “providing services and materials which will empower people…and the quality of life in the community.” Your vote will help support the library’s 2015 Family Vacation Reading Program, which serves hundreds in the community.

When she’s not at the library, she spends her spare time cookin’ good food and sittin’ by the campfire with her Marine and four legged babies.
