She was also the recipient of the "Humanitarian Award" of the Nathanial Abney Chapter of the American Revolution as an outstanding Author - Educator - Humanitarian.
Dr. Pugh was chosen by Eunice Kennedy Shriver to serve on the International Special Olympics Task Force to improve athletic training for handicapped athletes in the world. As a certified coach, Joye trained mentally and physically handicapped athletes for State, Regional, USA and International competitions in a variety of individual and team sports for over 12 years. She served two terms on the Georgia Special Olympics Board of Directors in Atlanta and received their "Award of Excellence". She was grant writer, founder and past president of two HUD projects in Irwin County which she served as Registered Agent for: Irwin County Resources Complex and Camelot Court, Inc. These million dollar projects, as well as, and her highly praised and respected Special Olympic Programs were funded under her leadership of annual non-profit fundraising events for over 12 years.
"Dr. Joye," as she prefers to be called, was the name given to her by some of her outstanding athletes. Besides being an outstanding athlete herself, she also, began her musical career playing the drums and tambourine at age 6. When she turned 9, she started piano lessons. At age 10, Joye began playing the guitar. Many years later, at 38 years of age, she added the bass guitar and a little saxophone to her musical capabilities. She added the 6 string Banjo to her talents in December 2008. Dr. Pugh plays Conga drums and percussion in her local church's Praise and Worship band, Satilla. She, also, plays piano and organ for Satilla Baptist Church in Irwin County during their weekly Sunday AM, PM, and Wednesday night services. Dr. Joye writes and composes her own songs, as well as, rearranges and performs the music of others.
Joye began singing with her younger sister, Gaye, as a duet for church specials and holiday events, as well as, at various local pageants when they were children. She was a member of the Irwin Academy Youth Choir which competed on a yearly basis. At 12, Joye joined the Satilla Adult Church Choir. She and a musical friend, Steve Gibbons, traveled her senior year to various churches in South Georgia where they performed services of contemporary music and oral interpretations of which she developed from the sermons of James Weldon Johnson.
Dr. Pugh received Christ and was baptized when she was 11 years old. Her love for prophecy began at 6 years of age after having an unusual and prophetic dream about the End of Time. Her gifts of interpreting prophetic events increased even more after reading the Book of Revelation and Hal Lindsey's Great Late Planet Earth at age 13. From there she continued writing speeches for college involving Biblical and Scientific issues affecting this generation. Her Masters thesis was entitled, "Light: A Theory Of Alpha And Omega - From The Beginning Until The End." Joye continued her research and received accolades from her Curriculum Professor during her doctorial studies for her final paper, "A Theory of Alpha And Omega - From Beginning Until The End."
Dr. Pugh's dissertation, "A Program to Decrease Obesity in the Mentally Retarded Adult Population" was a major applied research project encompassing 18 months of training and data collection which allowed her to scientifically prove her theory that mentally retarded adults could achieve the same physical level as that found within the normal population. The subjects, some both mentally and physically handicapped within the clinical trial she developed, all achieved and were presented Presidential Sports Fitness Awards; something no other mentally retarded group had ever achieved. Many of her adult subjects went on to compete in athletic events against non-handicapped individuals thus proving mentally retarded individuals do not have to remain on the sidelines of life but can successfully engage in strenuous and advanced levels of competitive sports without adverse effects. Dr. Pugh is keenly interested in how the spirit within human beings allows subjects with limited mental and physical capabilities to transcend established expectation. Her theories prove that if the normal population could somehow transcend expectation then there would be no limit to capability; as capability is harnessed by what one believes one can achieve.
Most importantly, for over 30 years, now, Dr. Pugh has been involved in researching Biblical prophecy. Joye consults with people from around the world on various issues and current events involving science and religion. She also serves as a consultant in education with MUFON regarding the spiritual and religious aspects of paranormal and UFO experiences.
