No; I attended Humboldt Institute in Minneapolis MN. for one year Oct.1966-June 1967. It was a business school specializing in training for a business career in aviation; railroads; or trucking; none of which I ever got into.

If you get a chance, say hi to Dr Kim Vandiver. Last I heard he was Dean for Undergraduate Research. He's one of my glider buddies from days gone by. He took me up in a rickety 2-33 trainer on a day that almost no one else would dare fly. I told him I wasn't his student that day, I was his ballast! It's pretty impressive to be screaming along at cloud base in such a rickety ship while looking down at lakes and seeing waves being formed by the wind, and to see fields of grass laying down and trees bending also due to the wind. If you're interested, check out www.gbsc.org - Kim's a member, last time I checked.

Graduated in 1999 with a B.S. in Travel Industry Management with an emphasis in Transportation from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Almost had a double emphasis in Tourism Policy, but was short 1 elective. I took three or four of my transportation courses from Michelle Wie's father and he would occasionally talk about her playing golf. She was between 8 and 10 years old at the time.

The TIM program was what made it possible for me to get a job working for the airline industry in Hawaii. 2 internships are required to graduated and got my second internship at HA. Since it was a paid internship, I was considered an employee and could bid for open positions. I bid for and got a full-time position after graduating. I no longer work at HA, but have been able to get jobs at other airlines at HNL. Currently, I am a Cargo Supervisor at my airline.

I also have a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from Midlands Technical College (gained in 2005 so that I'd have at least one marketable skill to fall back on) and a Masters in International Studies with an emphasis in European politics from North Carolina State University. Ideally I'd like to pay down some of my student loan debt now and then go to law school to expand on the international law background.
