Kathi Wales, Jefferson State Child Development Program Coordinator, said “Prior to UA creating this educational avenue, our students were 'dead in the water' when they completed their associate degree with us and some of them really wanted to continue their education. So we approached several universities about the critical need and UA came through thanks to Carroll’s efforts and the faculty at the time who agreed to do it."
"There are really no words of gratitude adequate to thank her and UA. Now other colleges and universities have followed but UA opened the door first. Carroll has been an advocate for our program not only in opening the door but she faithfully attended our advisory meetings, answered a ton of my questions, offered assistance when we went through our first accreditation and our re-accreditation. She spoke with peer reviewers about our program each time.”
Congratulations Dr. Tingle on this well-deserved honor!
