I retired from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice/Parole Division in August 2015 after 26 years. Since that time, I’ve enjoyed reading, going to the gym, playing golf, getting further involved in my church and the Republican party. I was just elected to the Republican Precinct Chair in my particular precinct. I do plan on traveling more and will plan to travel to Minnesota to take part in more alumni events. I enjoyed my time at Mankato, it opened my mind and heart to many ideas and friends.
