What is your fondest memory of your time spent in the college?

My fondest memories at UGA in FACS are the wonderful times I spent in all the extra opportunities offered - UGA SHEA/Phi U/Student- Faculty Committee.  I made some wonderful friends and gained some great leadership skills.  

How did FACS prepare you for your career?

FACS prepared me by having wonderful staff teaching classes that I used in teaching middle school FACS for 30 years.  

Why do you give to FACS/UGA?

I give because FACS gave me so many opportunities to thrive in the profession.  I owe the college everything.  

What is the best advice you can share with current FACS students?

Enjoy everything!  They are attending the best university - and the best college anywhere.  Get involved - volunteer - be active in as many things as possible!
