Why I came to Taylor:
I first visited Taylor with my high school age son when I was living and working in Zambia as a missionary. The students, staff, and faculty were high-quality individuals who impressed me with how they lived out their faith. I decided that when I repatriated to the United States I would like to become a part of the Taylor family.
Now that I am at Taylor, I enjoy working with the students, helping them with classwork and life issues. I also enjoy the faculty and staff and the wide variety of projects I work on.
Advice to incoming students:
Always keep God first in your life and try to stay in the center of His will. Set your life priorities and do your best to stick to them.
