Amanda Griffin–Vice President for Advancement at Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, Georgia–joined me in “The Communication Corner,” the interview program I host at 9:00 a.m. every Tuesday on WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” Brenau rebroadcasts the program at 6:00 a.m. Thursday for those who missed it the first time.
