Favorite thing about working at Carthage
“Our team in the Office of Continuing Studies. We are truly a team of professionals working to assist adults who are returning to school and make sure they have a positive experience as they matriculate through their undergraduate and graduate degrees from Carthage.”
“I have been the radio ‘Voice of the Red Men and Lady Reds’ athletics for the past 16 years. I handle the play-by-play of Carthage football along with men’s and women’s basketball on WLIP radio in Kenosha. My nickname on campus is ‘Voice.’
I also bowl twice a week and have carried a 200+ average for almost 30 years. I have rolled one perfect game and have a pair of 299 games in league competition.
