"I welcome the opportunity to support students who are obtaining the necessary quality training which assists their path towards reaching full potential. The choice of Babson, as provider of the tools for future success, is both logical and, for me, an obvious conclusion. Babson students shall include some of our future captains of industry, government, and the influence leaders for our future. My personal (Babson) experience, strongly, and positively, affected my approach to resolving issues, solving problems, and analysis. It created an environment where I learned to be concerned but not fearful of the unknown, to approach obstacles more effectively and, readily respect others as valuable resources from whom I always could learn. I credit Babson with aiding my entry into one of the most successful corporations in the world. While valued there for what I knew and could personally accomplish, I became more successful through leveraging my talents: aiding others to reach and obtain the solutions to their crucial business issues; as well as personally take pride, credit and ownership of the means and solutions; not just relying on my contribution. I also expect that Babson students, as I did, will learn that effective application of knowledge is the real power. I am pleased to have modified an existing annuity investment, naming Babson as the beneficiary, in order to provide support to future Babson students."
