What do you do for a living now?
I am a regional sales manager for a technology company, NanoLumens, based in Norcross, Georgia.
Do you think your time at Mount Pisgah Christian School helped you to pursue this?
I don’t know that it played a direct role in my current career. However, Mount Pisgah taught me many of the life principles that have helped with my career and life. Mainly the mentors placed in my life at an early age taught me the keys to success through their example and Mount Pisgah was the direct connection to those individuals.
Did you enjoy your time at Mount Pisgah Christian School?
Had you asked me the day I left the answer might have been different publicly, but privately Mount Pisgah was and still is one of the best experiences of my life. The friendships I made are more than friends, they are family. The experiences I had with that family helped forge who I am today and continue to be a constant in my life that are always there when I need them. It truly was a special place to be.
What was your most memorable moment as a student?
Senior year, our final football game with thirty of my closest friends. We didn’t win but we had accomplished another year together and for many of us it was the last time we would touch a field. It was a moment that I still remember and the emotions of that night still feel as real now as they did then.
Would you send your children to Mount Pisgah Christian School?
Both of my children currently attend the Preschool program. Mount Pisgah has made such an impact on my life that my wife and I wanted nothing more than our children to go there. In fact, the impression has been so profound that my wife elected to leave her career to give back and become an Assistant Director at the Preschool. Her interaction with my “family” and their adoption of her led her to want that for our children and even more so led her to wanting to give back to a place that has defined our family.
Describe Mount Pisgah in 3 words?
Family, community, faith
What is your lasting impression of Mount Pisgah Christian School?
Mount Pisgah will always hold a special place in my heart. Looking back on my life and where I am now, it is evident to me that Mount Pisgah helped mold me into who I am today. The relationships forged and the memories made will always hold a special place in my heart and are what compel me to give back to the school that played such an important role in my early life. I find that my greatest connection is not to a university, fraternity or a career, but to a place that shaped me well before the other establishments left their mark. Mount Pisgah at my core is where I became the man I am today and I am grateful for the faculty, coaches and institution that invested so much in me.
