On April 8, 2017, Dr. Mac Adkins celebrated being half a century old! Yep, that’s right…Mac is the BIG 5-0! To “celebrate” we thought we greet him in all black at the office! We love and appreciate our leader. He is a self-admitted conservative-educational-entrepreneur which we are pretty sure is an oxymoron! An educator at heart, he’s been involved with distance learning back in the days of the “correspondence courses” and “snail mail videos”. Mac was in distance learning long before it was cool (as he likes to say). In fact, even the descriptor has evolved from distance learning to online learning to most recently elearning. Through the years, Mac has stood firm on two beliefs that have served him well in life and business. He is a lifelong learner himself and strongly believes it is the best way to improve one’s situation in life. Secondly, he is a man of great integrity. He treats all people fairly and while not perfect, Mac continues to lead by example of “doing the right thing”. So…Mac…thanks for being a good sport about our dressing in black. We appreciate you and are thankful you are our leader.
