Favorite WSU experience
Every class was a gift: a new instructor and new knowledge to gain. I was always excited at the possibility of what would come next!
I made so many new friends of all ages and walks of life. The support of my current office made graduation attainable while also allowing me to have a life outside of work and school. The best gift I received was from former President Elson Floyd. He looked at me and said, “Sometimes we must change our situation to ensure our own success.” His encouragement gave me the opportunity to expand my view and find my own way to success.
I will continue to assist students in finding their way to reach their goals. I feel all of us have a duty to turn around and lift the next person up.
On a personal level, I look forward to spending more time with my husband and my dogs. I will celebrate my graduation with a cruise with my daughters this summer from Vienna to Croatia, Montenegro, and the Greek Islands!
