Thoughts on Ball State: "Ball State is the source of most of my deepest friendships through Sigma Chi fraternity and gave my family the joy of seeing our son graduate from the Miller College in 2008. The university has given me pride of seeing the university grow into a distinguished center for higher education and the chance to work with outstanding Ball State graduates in every job I have ever held."
