When someone we know, admire, or who has had significant effect on our lives passes, there is a natural compulsion to reflect on what they meant to us and on the meaning of our own lives as well. I have been very fortunate. My career in technology began right before the Big-Bang of personal computing, in the much calmer but still exciting height of the mainframe era.

The Web is an additional medium used by major TV cable news networks to expand and complement the dissemination of international, national, local, or other news that help users improve their knowledge and make informed professional and personal decisions. News websites provides an excellent way to present news to users who are willing to accept this technology and perceive that it is useful and easy to use. News websites allow professors to bring current events to the classroom and to e-family leaders to bring current events to their e-family members in real time.

I remember my mom taking me to my very first cheerleading class. She dressed me in my favorite play shorts (they were pink, my favorite color at the time) and a white tank top that had a pink megaphone on it, which she had bought when she registered me for the class. White ribbons streamed through my lopsided pig tails. I was excited and nervous at the same time and with every step my new sneakers lit up.

At the age of 7, my uncle gave me my first baseball card. It was a ‘Gary Ward 1989 Score’ card. From that moment on, I wanted to play baseball in the major leagues. I started playing in Little League games every summer. I even remember making a ball out of tinfoil and playing Homerun Derby with my brother in the living room. I knew I was going to make my dream come true and play 3rd base for the Atlanta Braves!

This is my first ever blog and it may be appropriate for me to introduce myself and explain my role at the College. While my title is Vice President for Government Relations, my job is the lobbyist for the College.
