What year you graduated from KSU: I graduated in the year 2000.

What have you been up to since graduation: I have been working at the Aquaculture Research Center trying to keep up with technology, working on our online classes and our social media presence. KSU Aquaculture’s YouTube channel has over 1,300,000 views and has reached almost every country possible. Our online classes have also been taken from several different countries and the majority of the United States.

Best memory or memories at Kentucky State: When I graduated from KSU with my parents, siblings, wife and kids present.  I was the first person in my family to earn a college degree.

Most important thing you learned here: The most important thing I learned while at KSU is how to be happy.  It’s really easy to spot the bad things happening in our lives and overlook the good things, family, friends, health and faith.
