     I have been married to Mark Young for almost 28 years! (We got married 2 weeks after my college graduation.) We have lived in Forrest City; Miami, Ok; and Rockingham, NC. But I was born and raised in Jonesboro so when Mark was offered a job working for the ASU College of Business, we jumped at the chance to come back “home”.
