Director of Operations for Mine Creek Strategies in Tupelo, MS

The Croft Institue provided me so much more than an education. It provided me a way of thought, an opportunity to see the world, and an appreciation of other cultures. I went on to get an MBA, and I work in fields outside of international studies and Spanish; however, the classes I took as a Croft student taught me invaluable skill sets that supersede any single field. I learned to read intentionally, analyze and form opinions on foreign material, and most importantly, write academically. I also learned how to speak in a professional setting. It is shocking how many people in the work force do not have this ability! Thank you Croft for preparing me for the real world!
