Why I Chose Midway: As a two sport athlete I was not prepared to specialize in college and Midway gave me the opportunity to play both basketball and softball while continuing my education.

Favorite Midway Experience or Memory: When Midway’s day program was all girls often you could find only the athletes on campus on the weekend. At the time, our small college was like being a part of a sorority, but no one had to pledge. We could be found on rainy days practicing our slides on the softball field, walking back to the dorm a muddy mess. We were trusted to “house sit” at the President’s House and staged several funny pictures. Our time together on the Bridge of Opportunity, at the water tower, train tracks, and just hanging in the dorm together built friendships that have stood the test of time.

What Midway Means to Me: Midway to me means opportunity. Midway opened doors for me in Education and Athletics that laid a foundation for a successful career.

Advise for Future Eagles: Be safe, have fun, and enjoy your time making memories with friends. When one door opens, walk through it.

Where Are You Now: I am currently the principal at Bondurant Middle School in Frankfort, KY.

Interesting Fact About You: I received the Margaret Ware Parish Award in 2000.

Other Information (family, etc.): I have been married for 17 years and have 4 daughters, ages 15, 14, 7, and 4.

Favorite Quote: “To laugh often and much: To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
