1. This should be addressed to Abigail Evans
My name is Abigail Evans and I am 26 years old. I am the proud mother of two precious little girls and I am currently expecting my third child. To me, I am very shy and laid back. To others, I am very outgoing and confident. All in all, I am a great person and fairly easy to get along with. I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and we later moved to Jackson, Tennessee where my dad retired from the military. I got married to my best friend in 2014 and we are still going strong. I absolutely love my life and I love the Lord. I am interested in singing and dancing. Within the church, I use both my singing and dancing gifts to minister to others. Ultimately, I just want to please God in everything that I do.
I am currently seeking to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Health Care Management/Business. I have my Associate’s degree in Medical Assisting, so I have a lot of experience within the medical field. However, with getting my Bachelor’s in Health Care Management I would be able to be more on the business side of things.
English 101 was not hard but, it also was not easy. I learned that there are many ways that I can improve my writing. I believe that digging deeper within a topic can assist me when it comes to getting readers to understand my topic even more. However, I did not receive the grade I wanted but, I am looking to do much better this time around.
2. This should be addressed to Jimmy Bivens
My name is Jimmy Bivens. I have worked for the State of Tennessee (TRICOR) for almost 24 years. At TRICOR, we provide training to incarcerated individuals for future success in returning to society. My wife Debbie and I have been married for 30 years. We have two children, Tiffany 29 and Ryne 25. My hobbies comprise: Coaching baseball, playing golf, and spending time with my granddaughters. I love to assist people achieve things they thought were impossible.
I started my educational journey back in 1984 and as life transpires things changed. In 2012, I decided to take an online course, in History, to see if I could keep up with work, family and school. I did well in the course, but I made excuses why this was not going to work for me. Then in 2016, I made the commitment to myself that I would finish what I had begun in 1984. If everything goes as planned, I will receive my B.S. in Organizational Leadership in August 2018. The main purpose for me completing my degree is eventually I would like to be TRICOR’s CEO and without a degree this opportunity would not be available.
My skills in writing a paper were far from the level needed to be in my current position as Chief Operations Officer. Writing a research paper had me apprehensive, because I was fearful I would not complete the paper in the correct format. However, after going through the five weeks of English 101, I gained confidence in my writing abilities and with my professor and cohorts feedback, I was able to create a good evidence based research paper.
