President Myrna Ballard

President Myrna Ballard thank you for asking me the question that changed me and my family life for ever June 2009.

    "John what do You do?"

You then spent almost one hour that day helping me determine what I did / offered the business community. You had me meet Ms Suzanne Barnett, Director of the UGA SBDC at Valdosta State University and a member of the faculty at Valdosta State University the month of July 2009. We meet for 4 Mondays an at the end of the process I was informed the answer to your question.

  1. June 2015- Dr. Ballard helped me see the light about a bad decision and made me take a second look at my life’s destiny.
  2. July 2015- After resting, I remembered my true destiny/assignment (see

  7. Dr. Ballard gave me my after-college goal: “You have learned a lot, and your challenge with your sociology degree is to go out and be a ‘do-gooder.’ If you can create a one-size-fits-all product, you will be able to help solve problems around the world.”
  8. Dr. Ballard always challenged me to exceed the standard by doing my best every day.
  9. Dr. Ballard taught me to think critically about applying my sociology degree.
  10. Dr. Ballard was and is straightforward with me concerning how I perform tasks assigned, providing both good and bad feedback. From day one, I always knew where I stood in his classroom.
I am excited about being on task again. Thanks again, Dr. Chet Ballard and President Myrna Ballard! I will let Valdosta, America, and the world know about people working together for the greater good.
