My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

On Tuesday July 18 I had the awesome experience of becoming a grandfather for the first time. As I sat in the waiting room for my granddaughter to be born I heard lots of positive comments about the RN doing the delivery and her midwife skills.
I began to wonder how someone could become a midwife without being a MD. The answer is yes it happens and a great place to earn that certification and MSN degree is at Emory University.
Ranked as one of the top midwifery programs in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, the Nurse-Midwifery specialty at Emory is designed to provide nurses with practitioner skills in antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, family planning, and selected aspects of well-women’s healthcare.
Upon completion of this program, graduates are eligible to take the certification examination of the American Midwifery Certification Board.
The Methodist Episcopal Church founded Emory College in 1836 in the small Georgia town of Oxford. The school suffered for many decades until the Methodist Church in 1914 was looking to create a university in the South, and Emory College was looking to expand. Combine that with a generous donation from Asa Candler, the founder of The Coca-Cola Company and Emory relocated to DeKalb County GA in 1915.
