  1. Great interview. I love how Dr. Marshall understands how not every student is ready to go, go, go. That was me 16 years ago. I do appreciate Crafton and all that is available for us students to succeed and continue to move forward rather than feeling like a failure and fustrated.

  2. I really enjoyed listening to this interview. Dr. Marshall is doing a great job as Crafton Hills College President and I am enjoying our work together.

  3. Jimmy, not only did you have a great guest in Cheryl Marshall, but I think you did a fantastic job as the interviewer. Great questions, great interview!

    • Thank you Robert. I like the podcast format because it can be treated much more as a conversation rather than an interview. In a formal interview it would be inappropriate (perhaps) for me to discuss my experiences and thoughts on things though it is entirely acceptable in the form of a podcast conversation. She is such a delight and great person…my students commented to me how unexpectedly humble and “real” she is.

  4. Gotta say that I agree with Robert, Jimmy — it was a fantastic interview and I really marveled not only at Cheryl’s candor, but you have a gift as an interviewer… can’t wait to hear your next podcast!

    This interview gave me a great feeling, that so much is going right at Crafton Hills College and what a benefit to be part of this movement forward. Also — we GOTTA see Cheryl spin some Dough for us someday!
