Budding Author

She's Maggie Plauche, Business Analyst on the Student Admin. Business Analyst Team (AIS) by day, but in her free time she tends a vineyard, a greenhouse, guinea hens, a pond full of fish, and writes books. She has written and self-published two children’s books (so far) that depict her grandchildren as well as grand-nieces and grand-nephews as baby guineas. The name of the book series is ‘Guinea Run Vineyard’, The Adventures of Eli and His Friends. They're not for sale to the general public, yet, but Maggie has been approached to market them on a children’s book website. A third book is in the works and should be completed in July. You can say you knew her when!

You don't want to mess with her!  

Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Assistant Director - Academic Computing and User Services, won first place in creative empty-hand kata, first place in traditional weapons kata, and third place in sparring in her competition age/rank divisions at the 2011 Lone Star Open (North American Sport Karate Association) on February 11.
