on-campus talent

I've been compiling the media resource list for our local newspapers and television stations. FVSU professors have been remarkably forthcoming with their information - thanks! I have areas of research and past activities for more than 30 professors now. And you won't believe some of the neat things our talented faculty have done.
For example:

Do you know who among you performed with both the Temptations Reunion Tour and the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus bands? (That one should be easy)

Which professor served as a Georgia Army National Guard Preventive Medicine Officer? (Not who you think!)

Do you remember who presented “Exotic Animal Evacuation” at the Georgia Department of Agriculture “Animals in Disaster” training here in Fort Valley in October of 2006? (Again, a surprise.)

Who attended The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK and has taught in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and the United States?

Who has served as an instructor, instructor trainer, and volunteer safety specialist with the American Red Cross?

And this one might be a gimme, but who is a Retired Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army; Intelligence Officer and Aviator and has more than 8 years of law enforcement experience as Chief of Police/Director of Safety and Security on college campus and is Certified in Homeland Security, Level V, under the American College of Forensic Examiners International?

An impressive group of educators, indeed.
