FOCUSED ON HELPING OTHERS LEARN: AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. PEGGY SWIGART

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Jun 30, 2017 11:30:00 AM

Educators have the ability to influence students in a variety of different ways. Some are trusted mentors, others can be a stand-in for a parent, while some become that one person a student can talk to about anything.

Dr. Peggy Swigart, Department Chair in Trident’s Glenn R. Jones College of Business, knows this all too well. Educators were there for her when she needed them the most. While in high school, Dr. Swigart lost both of her parents, putting her in a position to grow up a little faster than she had planned.

Educators were a stabilizing influence for her, including a high school guidance counselor, an undergraduate history professor, and a dean during graduate school. They were people who knew her well, understood her journey, and helped to mold her into the educator that she is today.
