What other positions have you held at SIC?

What does SIC means to you?
SIC is a staple in our community. Local students have access to a good affordable education. Not every H.S. graduate is ready for a University setting, SIC can transition them from H.S. to college with help and encouragement from the faculty and staff. Also, not every student is a baccalaureate student, SIC offers vocational programs that allow them to enter right into the workforce with skills for them to be successful in life.

What is your favorite memory at SIC?
I was having a very bad day and ran into Russ Lane, he could tell something was going on. He told me “if they pay you to stack greased BB’s then stack greased BB’s.” I busted out laughing and thought this too shall pass!

What do you do in your spare time?
I love to camp and visit with my grandbabies.

Where’s your favorite vacation spot?
Camping right on the beach or up in the mountains.

In the movie based on your life, who plays you?
Lucille Ball, she was sassy, pretty and you knew where you stood with her.

Do you have a dream?
My dream right now would be to retire now (not going to happen) and travel in my motorhome where ever I wanted and stay extended amount of time with my grandbabies. My son-in-law says only a week of me and my daughter together at a time!

What is the best piece of advice you have ever heard? 
I have two: Suck it up Buttercup! ..and.. Be true to yourself, people come and they go, but you have to live with yourself!
