What is your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

I enjoy working with dynamic and bright young adults, and with faculty who love learning as much as I do. My top five Gallup Strengths include Learner, Input, Connectedness, Arranger, and Relator. Many of my colleagues have Learner and/or Input in their top five Strengths, so we all have a lot in common. We love academia and sharing what we have learned with others who need to hear what we can offer. However, I personally feel rewarded to learn as much from my students as they may learn from me.

What attracted you to the Communication Department?

I was attracted to Communication when I took my first public speaking course. With each course, I was more enamored with the discipline. Communication is versatile and includes interpersonal, gender, listening, small group, nonverbal, verbal, perception, values, ethics, theory, self-concept, speaking in public, and so much more. It is impossible to exist without communication. Most every occupation requires effective communication skills. On a personal level, I deliver motivational presentations, chair committees, write books, and I have conducted hundreds of professional workshops and personal growth sessions. I serve as a guest lecturer in other faculty members' classes, as well as a peer evaluator for communication departments at other institutions.

My wife Tonya and I enjoy traveling. Together we have visited the Dominican Republic and Paraguay. Tonya has also traveled to Russia and to Mozambique. We also enjoy visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters who live near Nashville, Tennessee.

I am an active member of the Greenville Kiwanis club and of the American Farm Heritage Museum. While I do dabble in collecting early editions of important books, my main hobby is amateur radio. As of late September 2009 I have made contacts with other amateurs in 44 countries (working toward 100).
