Both Jim and Anne graduated from Tennessee Tech in 1969, Jim with a degree in Industrial Technology and Anne with a degree in Home Economics.

Their business, Phoenix USA, has grown into an international company and they employ many Tennessee Tech graduates. They want Tennessee Tech to do better than just survive as a university; they want Tech to achieve excellence in providing quality education.
Jim and Anne have two children, Matt and Ginger, who both work in the business. They have two grandchildren, Tyler and Spencer. They recognize the value of a strong university of excellent quality and its impact on this region's future.
