"Judson’s ESS Department helped inspire me to become the PE and health teacher I am today. If it weren't for Dr. Ensign personally meeting with me during my first year of teaching, I wouldn't have been able to get through the difficult year and possibly ended my career that I am still so passionate about. The professors nurtured me while I was part of the ESS Department and are some of my most loved mentors today."
