“I fell into some kind of bad habits so when I came to the faculty in ‘91 I decided I was going to renew the emphasis on taking care of myself,” he said.
Since coming to the faculty in 1991, Hughey said he has found his niche.
“I really like what I do,” he said. He enjoys “the constant renewal” of watching his students get their master’s degree, find a job and then report back that they were well prepared for the real world.
“I do a lot of consulting and training in the private sector and I haven’t run across a company yet that caused me to want to leave higher education. You don’t get rich quick, but you get a tremendous amount of flexibility and have better conversations than you do in some of the companies I’ve been to.”
The conversations and the people are what led him to his next unaccredited profession – the selfie king.
