Person of Interest

It is SSC's pleasure to say our co-worker Patti Rodgers has graciously agreed to be our Person Of Interest this November and December.  Patti is Dean Tillman's secretary at our Magnolia Campus.  Patti states, "So . . .  my first job at PSCC was quite a long time ago, as the Costume Designer for several plays.  In fact, I was an approved vendor for Pellissippi State before I started working at Magnolia.  My first job for Dean Tillman was as a Temp Systems temp for Project GRAD’s three weeks in the Summer of 2008 – and I’ve been at Magnolia ever since!"

Thank you Patti for agreeing to be our Person of Interest. We appreciate you!!!! 

Patti Rodgers November December POI

Q.   Have you ever dressed up for Halloween and what was your favorite custom!

A.  I’ve worked in too many costume shops to like Halloween much!  I prefer to put costumes on other people.

Q.   What would you sing at Karaoke night?

A.   I just say “NO” to karaoke.

Q.   If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

A.   If I could, I’d hire someone to clean my house.

Q.   Your favorite memory or childhood object you still have?

A.   I’m a collector (pack rat!) so I still have all kinds of stuff – record albums, concert tickets, postcards, love letters, clothes  . . . 

Q.  If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?

A.   I’m fascinated by the Commedia dell’arte period of Italian theatre, so, I’d go back to 16th century Italy!

Q.   Who is the most intelligent person you know?

A.   My son, Max.  I’m constantly awed by the depth of his knowledge about the world and his understanding of people.

Q. What is your favorite season and why?

A. My favorite seasons are Fall and Spring - not too hot – not too cold, plus I love the leaves turning colors in the Fall and then green again in the Spring.

Q.  What is the one thing you’ll never do again?

A. Never say never!
