Earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting with Nora Tucker a College of Business Administrative Assistant. Mrs. Tucker is really kind and welcoming. She is soft spoken and laid back and seems to really care for the students and their education. Here is my interview with Mrs. Tucker.
What do you do?
I am an Administrative Associate; I work with the MIS, and Marketing and Supply Chain Management departments.
Where are you from?
I was a marine brat growing up. My Dad and Brothers moved around a lot, but I was born in Jacksonville, NC and moved to Greenville when I was 5 years old, so I call Greenville home.
Where did you go to school?
I went to Rose High when I was younger, and went to ECU for my BSBE.
What are you hobbies?
I like to crochet, I also like movies. I used to go ice skating, but there’s not many places to go around here, so I don’t do that much anymore.
Do you have any family or kids?
I have a boy and a girl who are both in high school. I also have a husband who I’ve been married to for 23 years.
What is your favorite band or artist?
I really like Tina Turner, and Rod Stewart. I’m also a fan of Pink, and Kenny Chesney.
What is something about you that people would be surprised to know?
I got married in Vegas
What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Honestly, my husband and kids. You can go without a car, you could just walk places. And I can definitely live without my cell phone, so, my husband and kids.
What is the quality you look for most in a leader?
Comradery. Someone that will have your back and support you with everything that happens. You want to know that someone has your back and is there for you.
What is your favorite thing about ECU?
I love Pirate Sports. I know that sounds cliché to say for the blog, but I really do. I love going to all of the games and seeing all of the students go crazy, that’s so much fun. My favorite color is purple too, so there’s never too much purple and gold for me.
If you could give one word of advice to a student, what would it be?
Study and ask questions. Don’t be afraid to talk to a teacher, and get the help and support you need. If you need guidance, you really need to go out and get the support you need. Collaborate with other students, talk to your teacher, or another teacher. Teachers are there to help you, so if you need help, ask for it.
