What's New

  • Robbie Sue Bennett July 5, 1932 - March 4, 2014
    It with sadness that we announce the death of Robbie Bennett, longtime National Office Manager of the American Polygraph Association. Robbie passed peacefully from this life on March 4, 2014 after a gradual decline in health. She was cared for by her sisters June and Faye during the last days of her life. Robbie worked closely with many members of the AAPP and we will have fond memories of her.

    Robbie was born in Decatur, TN but has been living in Chattanooga since 1978 after traveling the world with her husband Bill while serving in the Air Force. She served the APA for 29 years, a position that she took very seriously and helped everyone she could. She was highly regarded by everyone who met her. She was a longtime member of First Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga.
