What does being one of Franklin’s 50 for 50 honorees mean to you?

I am humbled by this honor when I think of the many talented students I encountered while at Franklin and the many more I have gotten to know vicariously from Franklin's wonderful alumni publications. I am happy in any way to be part of the Franklin University story.

How does Franklin play into your success?

I credit my time at Franklin for making of me a citizen of the world. Without the scholarship opportunity Franklin provided for me to study abroad, my life would be less rich.

Who inspires you and why?

I am inspired by my students. When I hear others whine and complain about the younger generation, I push back. My students care about the future of the world and I know that we are in good hands as I yield and they ascend to leadership roles.

What is one of your hobbies?

As a sociologist, I am fascinated by our world. I enjoy international travel and have recently taken up Tai Chi.
