“To know that even one
life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
||Thank you for visiting my
personal web site. In addition to sharing my philosophy and interests, I
hope we are simpatico. Hopefully, you will enjoy and benefit from some
of the writing and fund-raising tips. Because I love to cook, I posted a
special recipe, too.
My philosophy is to be thankful for every day and to
make a positive difference. My strengths are writing, public speaking,
and photography. My passions are promoting aviation, humane education,
heritage preservation and cooking.
||Because I write every day, my daily “editorial
prayer” is: “God, please grant me the serenity to accept the people I
cannot change: The courage to change the person who can be changed; The
wisdom to know that person is me; And, enough English expertise to know
‘me’ is the incorrect pronoun!”
In addition to earned academic credentials and
University teaching experience, my past newspaper, radio and live
television broadcast background, are skills which are important to
accomplishing my many projects.
||One of my radio station
managers over my ten+ years of on-air programs said, “Penny is extremely
organized. She works well with our staff, community leaders and
volunteers. She ascertains the needs of our community. Dr. Penny
produces and hosts our weekly public affairs programming. She sees that
our federal broadcast requirements are met. She is involved in our
community both as an outstanding volunteers and business leader.” Nice
words and radio offered great experience at that time of pre-digital and
black and white photographs!
Recently, the Greater Granby Area Chamber of Commerce honored me
with their rare Lifetime Achievement Award.
In addition to being listed to many Who’s Who
(WW of American Women, Business and Professional Achievers, In
the World, International Professional & Business Women, American
Education, Empowering Executives and Professionals, In America,
In the West, Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs),
earning a US Small Business Administration Media Advocate award
prompted then Governor, Kay Orr, the first Republican woman to
be elected Governor in the United States, to send me a personal
letter of congratulations. She wrote, “Your support of business
through your writing expertise, your business enterprise and
volunteer service to the community is an example for others to
follow.” I am blessed to continue to use my energy and special
skills to publish photographs, magazine articles and books.
