School begins today, and after three weeks back at the office, I finally get to see students for real today!

Here are shots of some of our new music majors, and new musical theatre majors:

In honor of the first day of the 2016-17 school year, I thought I might join the #Firstsevenjobs bandwagon.

  • piano teacher, from my sophomore year of high school
  • stock boy and soda jerk at Zarda Dairy in Lee’s Summit
  • jack-of-all-trades at Hardee’s in Lee’s Summit
  • youth ministry intern at my home church in Lee’s Summit
  • residence hall desk attendant and later a resident assistant at Southwest Baptist University (SBU)
  • summer clerical help in the SBU admission office
  • summer missionary at First Baptist Church, Tarkio

What did I learn?  That’s a longer story for a later post . . . .
