You’ll find her on the ground floor of Ingalls Hall with the other members of our competent staff in Student Financial Services. Patty’s job is challenging, interacting with students and parents each day, pursuing solutions to their problems. Last week as I dashed to the library to buy a cup of coffee, the mom of one of our students stopped me to ask, “Do you have time for some praise?” She told me how, during her association with Samford through the enrollment of two daughters, Patty has offered consistent, caring service. The person who told me this story is of great influence in her own community, but my guess is that Patty has no idea of that fact. She respects each person, regardless of personal circumstances, offering kind and helpful attention.
The world is better because of Patty Roark and our staff in Student Financial Services.
