The team behind BCLC

Debbie Black


My name is Debbie Black and I have been the Director of BCLC for 19 years. Before I became the Director I taught Pre-K for 4 years, was the head teacher for 1 year at BCLC and taught 4 years at another Preschool. I have 4 children and 10 grandchildren. All of my children have worked at BCLC and 1 is still a teacher here. One of my grandchildren graduated Kindergarten at BCLC and there are 2 attending now one getting ready to start. BCLC has been my mission field to bring Christ to the children and their families. I have been so blessed working for the Lord at BCLC seeing so many children and families coming and going. Then seeing former students grow up and wanting to work here.

Ashley Liston

Assistant Director

Hello! My name is Ashley Liston and I am the Assistant Director at this wonderful center. I’ve been in this position for 2.5 years, but have been blessed to be a part of the BCLC family for about 12 years in total. While teaching at BCLC, I worked primarily with the Pre-K and School-Age children. In 2005, I graduated from Wright State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband, Cody and I have been married for a little over 5 years and have one incredibly awesome son, Cohen (3) and an adorable Pitbul puppy, Roxie (1). I have a passion for children and am beyond thankful for all of the opportunities I’ve been given. GOD IS GOOD! 

Theresa Clyburn

Administrative Assistant

BCLC has been my home-away-from-home for 13 years.  I have worked as a morning teacher, an afternoon supervisor, an assistant cook and finally, the enrollment specialist.  I open the building every day and enjoy seeing groggy parents dropping off their excited children for a day of learning.
