Meet Your 校友 Board Members 是一个持续的系列,鸿博体育APP突出校友会董事会成员. 这个月鸿博体育APP将邀请董事会成员乔治·李85年和娜奥米·珊蒂·李85年夫妇.  The Lees run a family 业务 in Penang, 马来西亚, with their two sons where they develop electronic greeting cards, software and apps, children’s educational titles and ecommerce. 他们最小的儿子吉奥山(geishan)最近于2020年从欧扎克毕业.

Tell us about your time at Ozarks. What did it mean to you? How did that time change or impact your future?

娜奥米: 上世纪80年代,乔治和我从马来西亚的一个大城市来到当时的欧扎克学院,这对我和乔治来说是一种文化冲击. It was quite an adjustment for me, especially when I had just spent a year studying in London, 英格兰, before coming over. It took me a little while getting use to the place. 促成这种转变的是紧密联系的校园社区和平易近人的大学教授,他们为学生提供的个人关注是大城市里更大的学习机构所没有的. 鸿博体育APP经常开玩笑说,虽然乔治和我在同一个城市长大,在马来西亚参加同一个教堂, we didn’t meet until we arrived in Clarksville. 因为鸿博体育APP学的是同一个专业,所以鸿博体育APP一起上了很多相同的课, and took part in similar activities on campus. Before we knew it, we were college sweethearts. 欧扎克的文科教育让鸿博体育APP在创新的同时发掘和最大化鸿博体育APP的潜力和能力. In addition to our majors in 业务 administration, 我辅修管理和艺术,乔治辅修市场营销,并选择了另一个艺术专业.

乔治: 鸿博体育APP参加各种校园活动,如Phi Beta Lambda, International Club, Host Family program, 艺术俱乐部, Freshmen Singers/Chorale, student life activities, 校报为鸿博体育APP提供了学习的机会和经验, 工作 and collaborate with people from across departments, divisions and groups, both horizontally and vertically. 鸿博体育APP在欧扎克培养的另一项技能是在为班级或组织工作时在时间限制下很好地交付的能力. Throughout our studies in Ozarks, 鸿博体育APP制作了几份视听报告,这让鸿博体育APP在大学期间被雇佣为美国大学优等学生协会(Phi Beta Lambda,简称PBL)和美国未来商业领袖协会(Future Business Leaders of America,简称FBLA)的州会议制作类似的报告. That continued even after we graduated. 这些技能是鸿博体育APP自豪地从大学时代带走的,并应用到日常生活中, 在家也可以, 工作, 业务, 或教堂. 在这里,鸿博体育APP也从学生中结识了许多终身的朋友, 教师, 工作人员, and people in 约翰逊县.  他们中的一些人来参加鸿博体育APP在马来西亚的婚礼,这些年来还来过鸿博体育APP家. 这些年来,有些人已经去世了,但鸿博体育APP仍然和他们的家人保持着密切的联系. Ozarks will always have a special place in our hearts, and more so now with our son, Geoshan, 他在2020年从欧扎克毕业时继承了鸿博体育APP的家族遗产.

为什么毕业后加入欧扎克对你很重要? Why have you chosen to give back to the University?

娜奥米: 这是鸿博体育APP回馈母校的方式, developed interpersonal skills, gained experience, and where we made lifelong friends.  这也是一切开始的地方也是我和乔治相遇的地方. It is and always will be a special place for us.

乔治:  鸿博体育APP喜欢向所有愿意听鸿博体育APP故事的人吹嘘欧扎克.  在过去的十多年里,鸿博体育APP在槟城教会的一些孩子听了鸿博体育APP的故事后,参加了欧扎克的教会,并从那里毕业.

What is your favorite Ozarks memory?

娜奥米:1983年5月,我和阿肯色州州长比尔·克林顿合影. 直到近十年后,我才意识到这张照片在当时的重要性.  When he was elected president, upon the recommendation of a friend in Clarksville, 鸿博体育APP把照片放大后,连同一封祝贺他获胜的信一起寄给了他. 他很有风度地签了字,寄回给鸿博体育APP在马来西亚的人. 

乔治:对我来说,那是在1985年的校友周期间. 海伦·沃尔顿看上了我在餐厅里展出的一件艺术品. 我很荣幸能将Raku的作品送给她,以感谢她对美术中心大楼的贡献. She wrote me a lovely note, 但不幸的是,这么多年来到处搬家,把它放错了地方.

Who was your favorite/most impactful professor at Ozarks and why?

娜奥米: If I must choose one, it would have to be Dr. 兰迪·希尔顿. He knew his stuff and taught it well. He was creative, respected and understood his students, 给了他们努力工作的信心和动力,并激励他们追求卓越. 

乔治: That’s a tough question. For me, there is no one favorite professor. During my four years in Ozarks, 除此之外,我还能向商业和艺术部门的教授学习, 我也有幸向其他部门的教授学习, who were incidentally not my class instructors. 他们每一个人都以某种方式向我灌输了一种品质或教会了我一种我可以使用或交易的技能.  An example was learning how to operate a movie projector from Dr. 鲁比·雷诺兹,虽然我从没上过她的科学课,还有. George Schellenberger, 是谁心甘情愿地和我分享他关于视听设备的知识, dubbing techniques, and darkroom techniques. 这些经历间接地让我有机会在大学里教授应用摄影课程. I will always be grateful to all who invested in me back then.

你为什么选择继续为欧扎克服务,成为校友理事会成员?

两个: 这是鸿博体育APP回馈这个地方的方式,因为鸿博体育APP在那里的时间让鸿博体育APP受益匪浅. It shaped us in many ways and has made us who we are today. 

What is your favorite Clarksville or 约翰逊县 activity?

娜奥米: 约翰逊县 fairs, 我男朋友在嘉年华游戏中获胜后会给我带很多毛绒玩具回来.

乔治: Camping and photographing nature and the outdoors in Clarksville, 约翰逊县, and the surrounding areas. 有一天能出版一本书仍然是我的白日梦, or a digital equivalent, on the natural beauty of Arkansas.
