What is your favorite thing about Boiling Springs?
Like most people, I really do enjoy the small town atmosphere. But it is actually the people that make it so great. And the best of those are right here at GWU!
 
Who has been your role model for you and why?
Without question, my role model is my father. Dad did not inspire me by enduring traumatic circumstances or by waxing poetic about the great questions of life. Instead, he provided me with a consistent, admirable example of how to live life with character and integrity. For that example, I am sincerely grateful.  
 
What motivates or energizes you?
I am energized by the fact that each day represents an opportunity to better understand today's changing world. Coffee helps from time to time as well. 

My favorite portion of Scripture is:
Lamentations 3:19-27
 
My hobbies and interests are:  
Cars, table tennis, and games with friends

What activities were you involved in while at GWU?
While at GWU, I served in the Student Government Association as both a class senator and student body vice president. Additionally, I worked as a student recruiter associate for undergraduate admissions, tutored in the Learning Assistance Program, and Dee-Jayed for WGWG

What were your three favorite things as a student at Gardner-Webb?
Memorable conversations with friends, The camaraderie enjoyed in the Social Sciences department by both faculty and students, and great times at the Broad River Coffee Shop.
