Terry More, RN, MS, Class of 1970

Forty years ago, I was the (first male) to graduate from the associate degree nursing program.  SC gave me the confidence to work in many areas of nursing. I have had the opportunity to work at some of the leading hospitals in the country. In addition, I have held nursing administration positions. Since my graduation, I have been an advocate for men, encouraging them to enter nursing. I continue to work in nursing education, and have no plans to retire.

I just LOVED being a student at Schoolcraft College in the early years of its development.  Every time I drive by the college wonderful memories come to my mind of the days I was a student there.  Now, my granddaughter is a student at Schoolcraft.  I feel blessed. Best regards and much success in your endeavors of managing the Alumni Relations Department.  I look forward to your e-mails and publications.

I graduated in ‘72 with an AA in Art. At the time, I was thirty-four years old with a husband and four small children I was so proud to be part of Schoolcraft, it was just a good "fit".  In 75’ I earned my BA in Fine Arts/Interior Design from Eastern Michigan.  I worked for a design studio in Birmingham and then for Ethan Allen in Livonia.  I moved to St. Louis and I continued my career with Ethan Allen until I retired 15 years ago.

In 1972, I entered Schoolcraft College with little academic confidence. The support I received helped me achieve my future success. I eventually went on to earn a Master’s degree and have enjoyed a successful career in social work for 25 years. Thank you SC for changing my life.

Since the age of 12, I wanted to be a nurse. Schoolcraft College helped me realize my dream. Over the last 50 years, Schoolcraft has made dreams come true for many students. Thank you SC.

Schoolcraft College has always been a place providing academic excellence and service to the community.  The education and foundation skills I received at Schoolcraft College have enabled me to have a long and rewarding thirty-six year career as a nurse.
