University of Kentucky alumni make names for themselves all across the world. Loretta Williams is now employed at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, which has been consistently ranked the number one cancer care hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Dr. Williams believes in making the most of the opportunities presented to you, and credits taking a chance on an experimental psych course at UK with teaching her this lesson. In this podcast, Dr. Williams discusses her time in Lexington before and during her study at UK, the psych course that put her on the path to where she is now, and the importance of taking advantage of those opportunities.
University of Kentucky alumni Don Puckett and Paul Skiermont are not engineers and don't have science backgrounds (unless their Political Science degrees count). That, however, has not stopped them from joining together as lawyers specializing in highly technical patent litigation.
According to Puckett and Skiermont, the secret to their success was a liberal arts education from UK's College of Arts & Sciences.
In this podcast, Puckett and Skiermont discuss their time at UK, their work together as lawyers, and how their time on the competitive debate team prepared them for future fights.
