"Education has always been an integral part of my life. Working with students, parents, faculty, and communities has energized me to contribute more to help learners achieve their academic goals and life pursuits. Many thanks to the talented men and women who continue to serve the United States of America. In closing, I would like to leave you with a nugget of knowledge I have come to realize throughout my life experiences and education:"Education is a unique resource. No matter how many times you share it, its value is not diminished, but increased."
