Why I Give or Why it is important to stay connected to WJU:

It is obvious that my affection runs deep or I might not have returned to my alma mater.   I am currently in my 25th year of teaching here at the University.   So much has changed physically since I was a student, new buildings and lots of changes in upper administration, but the one thing that has not changed is the dedication and care given to our students by our faculty and staff.    Many who taught me have retired in the last few years, but those faculties who came with me and the following 5 years are still here, following the examples set by our mentors.    The faculty remains committed to giving WJU students an excellent, well-rounded education.


Favorite Memory at WJU:

There are so many, but my favorite remains being in Gambol- especially my sophomore year and “West Side Story”     What hard work but what fun!
