Just a Little Deja “View”

Hello there! Hoping some of you reading this remember me. If not, I’ll introduce myself; I’m Mary (Turner) McDole ’79, Nursing major from the very first nursing class offered at Kentucky Wesleyan.  After receiving my diploma I ventured out from the swaddle of student life on campus to the challenges of adulthood. For those of you who might not know, I married my college sweetheart, Bob McDole ’78 (Business Administration) and he’s the one who has literally swept me across the country for these past 38 years. We enjoyed some exciting places and survived some not so exciting spots. But we didn’t just survive. We thrived, we prospered. Kentucky Wesleyan certainly prepared us for the challenges. Somehow it’s easier to really see the impact of that when looking back.
