And, as mentioned in a previous post, I know that God has placed angels along my path to help guide me along the way. Two of those angels at Butler were two professors – Dick Fetter & Dan McQuiston.
McQ – I am so thankful for you! When I was switching majors into Business from Pharmacy, you were my advisor. And, the semester prior to coming into the College of Business was not one of my proudest times. I was caught up in the trying to get the “full college experience” and since I was switching majors – I think I gave up on my sensibilities. You helped get me back on track both personally & academically. You helped me to see what I needed to do to get a great business education and graduate only needing one additional semester. And, you stayed in touch to ensure I was keeping on track. Knowing that, I didn’t want to let you down. I focused on my classes and my grades. I graduated with a 3.6 (almost Cum Laude) and with a job offer from Pfizer. And, I truly wouldn’t have had that job offer without your endorsement to my first manager. Truly, I wouldn’t be here without you! I am so very thankful for all you did back then, and for your continued friendship, guidance & support!
Fetter – I am so thankful for you! When I switched majors, you were one of the first professors I had for a business class. You opened my eyes to the world of business. What I loved about you & your class was that you were speaking from that experience. You would teach us the textbook information, and then use your personal experience (or share an experience of another) to make those concepts come to life. After being in your class, I knew I was in the right place! But, I am thankful for so much more than that! As mentioned, I wasn’t in a great place personally back then. You noticed and you cared. You were there to listen when I needed someone to listen –and you were there to push me when I needed someone to push me. And, when it came time to graduate, you also gave your endorsement to my first manager. Truly, I wouldn’t be here without you! I am so very thankful for all you did back then, and for your continued friendship, guidance & support!
