Q: Dr. Bush, what is your favorite memory of the program?
A: “Do I have to pick just one?! I think overall, my favorite memory has been the students over the past 35 years. There are so many amazing people that I get to work with. It’s very interesting because I have been able to watch students grow up and become very successful professionals. I can still remember the first day I met some of my students that have left indelible impressions on me, and I know where they are now, 20-30 years later!”
Q: What you are most Excited about for the 35th Anniversary Gala on May 1?
A: “For the 35th Gala, I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of our great alumni and student leaders come back – it’s the HRD Homecoming! I feel like I have a bunch of kids who have done great stuff and I’m very proud of them, so I’m excited to see them and hear about their lives. In addition, it’s a small group of people we have pulling off this amazing event, so it really is a testimony to how capabe these people are and the wonderful people we have attached to the program!”
Q: What has been your proudest moment for the program?
A: “There have been a lot! It’s hard to pick just one. I think one thing that I always am very proud of is when our HRD students win competitive scholarships. The ceremonies are always very proud moments because other entitles are recognizing the caliber of people that we’ve had come through Villanova HRD. In addition to the scholarships, it’s always great to learn about all of the internships that students receive, I’m very proud of them as well!”
