Why are you "forever green"?

"My experience at Northwest Missouri State University as a student and later as a vice president of college and community relations shaped the trajectory of my personal life and career. Northwest gave my education, unparalleled leadership experiences, mentors and lifelong friendships. Dr. Hubbard remains a close personal friend, mentor and trusted advisor. Without him steering me back to the University as a professional in 1999, I would not have found my home in higher education and in teaching. This has become my life's work and without Northwest, I would be somewhere else living another life."
