Q. Sid, how did you end up at Arkansas Tech University? You're not a native Arkansan; at the time you were hired, you had no relatives or close friends in Arkansas.

A. Astute question. In the 1970s, when I was finishing degrees and gaining selected public school experiences, I was preparing for what I thought would be a college teaching career in one of the IHEs associated with the churches of Christ such as Abilene Christian University, Oklahoma Christian, or Harding University. Though I would eventually interview with two of those, those universities and I were never able to coincide. When I was looking, they did not have openings for people with my credentials. When they were hiring, I was in tenure-track positions at Southeastern Oklahoma State University or Arkansas Tech University and it didn't seem the better part of wisdom to rock the boat.

I still think, though, that I was placed where I was supposed to be. Twenty-nine years of university students have been able to go to class with me without ever hearing the Lord's name taken in vain. None have ever been subjected to an off-color joke. No student of mine has ever had to endure a rant about evolution. I have had an active role in the preparation of about 6,000 teachers--enough teachers to teach over a million children, using conservative multipliers.

There's an old saying about blooming where you're planted. I have enjoyed living in Arkansas and plan to retire here.
