“Jackie Boron is finishing up an MBA, teaching full-time at Sandhills Community College and preparing for a 12-mile stand-up paddleboard race, all while raising two kids single-handedly. She also, apparently, has time to play piano, practice her aim, and help co-workers reach fitness goals in the school’s CrossFit gym. Oh, did we mention that she spent years designing her own elaborate back tattoo? Cause there’s that, too.
“When you’re passionate about something, you just have that energy for it,” she says. “Is accounting my passion? Do I live for accounting? No — but It’s not really about the subject matter. It’s about the students and teaching them new skills so they can succeed. Most of the time you’ve got people who have overcome serious obstacles to be here, and we’re all passionate about helping them.”
