My grandfather, L.B. “Tex” Williams, worked for Auburn for 53 years in various roles. Both of my parents are alums. But, when it came time to choose a school, I didn’t want to attend Auburn. It was too big, too public, and too much a part of my family. Then the scholarship money came in, as did an acceptance into the Honors College. After a visit to a homecoming game my senior year of high school, I sealed my decision and decided Auburn was the place for me. I never regretted that decision.

My years at Auburn University were some of the best of my life. My education at Auburn was the most valuable I could have received.

Since graduating in 2012 with a BA in English, that degree has opened doors to opportunities in my chosen field of writing and publishing. People recognize the name and prestige of the University and its programs.

I am now the Managing Editor for HomeCare Magazine, a business management magazine in the home health and HME industries, based in Homewood, Ala. Auburn helped me develop the skills I need to tackle interviewing business owners and communicating with authors, as well as researching industry issues. I would not trade the experiences I have each day in this industry for the world.
