Warren Hanchey was born in Troy, Alabama. His ancestors date all the way back to the town’s conception in the early 1800s. His grandfather is recorded to have donated part of the land where Troy University is now located. Warren Hanchey takes great pride in his family’s involvement in the city of Troy, so much so that he named his only son after the city.
When Warren was only a child, his mother and father owned and operated a very modest sandwich shop near the city post office. His mother and father, and eventually him, would arrive at the shop in the early morning hours and leave at sun down. He worked at the shop all throughout his childhood and into high school, scrubbing dishes and washing tables before he got to his homework. The family never made more than $5,000 per year running the shop, but Warren was still able to find a way to play sports while growing up. His parents made just enough that he was able to enroll in golf programs starting at the age of 5.
Throughout his middle school years, he spent most of his time at the Troy Country Club Golf Course. His passion for golf continued as he pursued his education, earning a varsity letter in golf and basketball each year he attended Charles Henderson High School. Although scholarships were almost unheard of when Warren was applying to universities, he was able to achieve a rare scholarship with the Troy University golf team to help pay for his education. He enrolled in the Accounting and Finance program and found out one day after graduation that he had been drafted for the Vietnam War.
After his time in the air force ended, he got married to his wife, Michelle, and had his two children, Meredith and Troy. He is currently a Private Researcher. To learn more about his education here: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/warren-hanchey/7/382/2…
