            1982-1984, Master's Degree, Counseling

            The University for LeadersLiberty is for Leaders. It was when I attended over 30 years ago, and even more so today. When I drove on campus in 1982 with a career dream and nothing else an amazing group of professors, mentors, coaches and leaders invested. The result? Their influence saved me a decade of time in being ready as a community leader. If you want to make a difference in the world - follow the path to Liberty where Leaders are developed body/soul/spirit into who they were called to be.
