            1978-1980, Bachelor's Degree

            CSU has an excellent business curriculum

            Columbus, Georgia was my hometown for nine years and I decided to complete by bachelor's degree at Columbus State University after marriage. I have accomplished much since my days at CSU. This school gave me a strong foundation to continue my education and to plant roots in Waycross, Ga where I am the CEO of an outstanding health care organization (McKinney Medical Center). I participate in the school travels and this year I will be touring East Canada.
