Human Resources Sergeant, Hinesville Police Department

What did you love most about Armstrong and why? 
The Staff. If it wasn’t for the folks behind the scenes in financial aid and student services, the opportunity to obtain a degree would have been almost inconceivable.

How did Armstrong help you succeed in your field? 
It’s not about what Armstrong has done to help me succeed but what Armstrong is doing for my continued success.  My degree helped me become qualified for future job opportunities that I, otherwise, wouldn’t have been.

Why did you decide to attend Armstrong? 
Armstrong’s location and satellite campus at the Liberty Center created a convenient opportunity.

What is your favorite memory of your time at Armstrong? 
Graduation. It’s not because I was leaving but because I had received accommodation for where I have been and a compass to guide me on the next adventure.

What is your best advice to current Armstrong students?
Strive hard to gain the most solid foundation utilizing the tools Armstrong provides to build a solid future.

Why are you proud to be an Armstrong alum? 
Because we are PIRATES   = Prideful Intellects Radiating Aptitudes That Exceed Standards
