Why are you "forever green"?

"Growing up in Maryville gave me an understanding of the value the University brings to the area and afforded me the opportunity to earn a degree.  Northwest provided me with experiences I could apply to my future, including the formation of life-long business and personal relationships. As I have been fortunate to be able to build my career in community banking, I have developed an even deeper appreciation for the University’s mission to focus on student success."
