I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. Joined the military about 22-23 out of college and served 21 years. Retired here in Columbia, South Carolina.
Coming out of the service I worked for auto dealership part-time. Really didn’t want to get into anything full-time. Decided to go back to school and came to Fortis here in Columbia.
As far as changing my personal life, I finally got a certificate, completion of something. I’ve got probably over 200 hours of college. I’m master of a lot and graduated from none. But I actually finished the program, got to walk the stage and got a certificate. So it’s actually something that I actually completed.
