Inside Look ~ WRA Alumni Author

"Tom Jones, a Pullet Surprise-winning author, was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Initially educated in the nearby Mentor school systems, he finished out his high school years at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson.  Throughout his life, Tom has combined upper education with travel, while earning an above average collection of degrees, certificates and professional licenses. - about which nobody much cares.

These stories of Tom's journeys reflect what kinds of adventures await the curious."  
     Tom is expecting to visit campus sometime this week!
