The one thing no one knows about me is ... that will remain a secret ;).

My dream job is ... the one I have now: WKU’s 10th president.

My first job was ... selling computer and video games at Babbages Software in the mall.

The best advice I ever got was ... read more and think more.

My hero (and why) is ... my grandfather, who went from sweeping floors at Southern Paper Co. to owning the business.

If I could do it all over again I’d … change nothing.

The part of my job I could do without is ... there really is not anything I don’t enjoy!

The one thing I always carry with me is ... my cellphone.

Best meal I ever had was ... at Chaunterelle in New York (SoHo), but it unfortunately is closed now.

At the top of my bucket list is … (I really don’t have a bucket list) to spend time on each of the seven continents??
