She taught in the secretarial science program for 20 years and helped to develop the computer applications class that is still taught today. Peg left  teaching and worked in the PEAKS program here at Cowley for six years. She retired in 2007, but worked part-time in the business office. Peg has been so fortunate over the years to be involved in the foster parent program, and she has had over 80 foster kids. They have been wonderful, but once retired she still missed the one-on-one relationship with the students so was so excited to get this opportunity to become a dorm manager. She loves being around this population and hopes they continue to keep her feeling young!
