“Redefining Ready was not intended as an institutional mission. Rather, it was something of a personal mantra for chapter one. It crystallized my work, when, just after the College’s 100th anniversary, the Board of Trustees voted to appoint me, an accountant and business school dean, as the school’s 16th president. In the three years since, the members of our community, united and determined, have asked for help, built connections and remained true to our Southern appreciation for balancing pride with humility.

As the momentum of positive change rippled across campus, Redefining Ready came to represent something larger: a zealous belief that Coker College can, and will, take a leading role in redefining American Education. Today, with the most enlightening, engaging and rewarding three years of my career behind me, I am ready to begin chapter two: Redefining Excellence.”
