I worked at Gary Methodist Hospital for a couple of years, then moved to Michigan City and taught for 8 years. My parents moved back to Tennessee so I wanted to get closer and took a job as Director of the RT program at a community college in Mississippi for the next 25 years. I retired from that job and started drawing my state retirement and took the job I am at now as director of the RT program for a private college.
Along the way I was the president of the Indiana and Tennessee Societies of Radiologic Technologists, president of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, elevated as a Fellow of the ASRT, served on the national accreditation board for Radiography and Radiation Therapy for 9 years. I was awarded the teacher of the year by the Mississippi State Legislature in 1991.
I have been with my partner Tommy for the past 12 years. We bought our dream home on top of one of the Cumberland Mountains and are planning on retireing and traveling in abut 4 more years.
I had a great time in school. The principal then, I don't remember his name, but he just knew all of us were members of the SDS. I had a Blast in school.
