For some reason my sister and I were talking about our days at Hazelwood High in Hazelwood Mo and I mentioned to her about you teaching there. I decided to check out what you were doing and found this page. I have so much respect and appreciation for the Profs in your department. Warren Messman, Lindau, Shiefield, HInes, Miller, Norma and more. Thanks for being the mentor you were and Happy Retirement. You and your department left an impression on me that words can’t begin to describe! Those were the good ole days! (1977-81) I’ve been retired now for 10 years and now live in southern Mo. Take care, Jim

I am so happy to read this wonderful story about you and your wife! I don’t know if you will remember me but I attended TCU in ‘80-‘84 and you were my advisor as they were called back then. You were VERY good and checked on me to be sure all was going OK. My mother thought the world of what you did for me and so did I.

Comment on Black Student Association provides sense of belonging for Samiya Alexander, others at UNK by Micah Wing http://unknews.unk.edu/2018/09/28/black-student-association-provides-sense-of-belonging-for-samiya-alexander-others-at-unk/#comment-14436 Sat, 28 Sep 2019 19:51:38 +0000 http://unknews.unk.edu/?p=39302#comment-14436 It is awesome to see my friend helping make a difference! Her dedication should be an inspiration for many. As a fellow American it is sad that we even need a group like this, because we are all humans. We shouldn’t judge someone by race or religion. But it is absolutely amazing that she is doing amazing thing and re-igniting this group so she can help others. Keep up the good work Samiya!

Comment on Can social media cause depression? One of many UNK projects unveiled at Student Research Day by James Wickersham http://unknews.unk.edu/2018/03/29/can-social-media-cause-depression-one-of-many-unk-projects-unveiled-at-student-research-day/#comment-9878 Wed, 17 Apr 2019 01:52:18 +0000 http://unknews.unk.edu/?p=34787#comment-9878 I think the correlation between social media and depression presented by this article is interesting. It seems to me that social media presents and environment where people compare them selves to one another. It’s a young person for example already has a somewhat low self-esteem, they may see The successes of others as meaning their accomplishments are of a lesser value.
