First thing I remember wanting to be “when I grow up” as a kid:
I wanted to be a teacher until I learned in the 3rd grade that teachers had to get a TB shot every year, then I wanted to be a truck driver.
First “grown up” job (for professional staff):
My first job after graduate school was being a Residence Hall Director at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minnesota
I grew up in South Dakota, but I’ve lived in 9 other states since I was 18. (Connecticut, New York, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Arizona and now Missouri)
Advice to Students:
No matter how you feel; Get up, Dress up, Show up and Never Give up!
