Person of Interest
It is SSC's honor to introduce to you Leslie R. Owle who works with us in ETS [Education Technology Services] as our Person of Interest for the month for February. Leslie notes, "...My role in the college is to provide support for Staff and Faculty who have Audio/Video needs or are working with the classroom technology (i.e. Projectors, Speakers, AMX etc.) My goal is to make the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible for those viewing and using the technology that Pellissippi State offers."
Q. What sound do you love?
A. I love to hear the sound of a flowing creek and katydids in the middle of summer.
Q. What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
A. Guardians of the Galaxy. Anytime there is an act of such loyalty, devotion and selflessness, I can’t help but have an emotional response and a renewed faith in humanity.
Q. What would you name the autobiography of your life?
A. High Heels to Karate Belts: A lesson in not ASSUMING.
Q. When you daydream of going somewhere, where is that place?
A. Disney World. It’s my happy place that I can escape to when I am stressed. No matter how many times I go, it never loses it’s magic.
Q. What do you still have that you saved from your childhood?
A. Rolf Puppet. He is a dog that used to have a barker in his mouth. He’s 23 but still resilient as ever and joins me on all my travels.
Q. What is your favorite food and why?
A. My Aunt Kat’s Chicken and Drop Dumplings. She would make them when I stayed with her and they bring back good memories (and taste AMAZING).
Q. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
A. Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She got a phenomenal library and a sweet guy who could dance.
Q. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
A. Crazy is objective. In my opinion, I have always acted logically. But to my friends and family, not so much. But to pick one incident I would say making an instantaneous choice to change my college major from Organic Chemistry to Technical Theatre Studies. Those two fields don’t have a lot of common ground. But it works for me.
