What are your favorite activities when you are not working?
My favorite activities are boating, fishing and stopping on the sandy beaches in Orange Beach, AL (OBA) and North West FL. I also like to deep sea fish.
What is your favorite thing about SoPA?
Online SoPA allows students of varied backgrounds to meet, learn and grow in a very accessible, convenient educational setting. A well-taught online SoPA class provides opportunities that would not be affordable to some without the costs of relocation or be accessible to as many potential students without the online capability.
What is your favorite app and why?
My favorite app is called CEOExpress, The Executives’ Internet. Students may want to use CEOExpress as their homepage as they progress through their career. "CEOExpress" is a Business portal created by and for CEOs. This site contains links to numerous web sites, such as Daily News & Info, Business Research, Office Tools, Travel info, Break time, Execudiva, Search engines, and the list goes on. It provides major headings and related sublinks.
The web site is www.ceoexpress.com. I encourage students to follow the link or cut and paste it to their browser if it meets their needs for use as a personal homepage.
