Where in the World is Smokey?

Staring Up at the Eiffel Tower

UT Knoxville alumna and staff member Reggie Curran recently took Smokey to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

"I am one of those 'non-traditional students' who returned to school after her kids grew up," Curran said. "It took me 29 years after high school graduation in 1966, taking a class at a time, to finally earn an associate's degree from Brevard Community College in Cocoa, Fla., in 1995. We came to Knoxville in 1995 when our son began attending UT, and I began attending UT Knoxville in 1996. I earned a bachelor's degree in family studies in December 2000, and was the top grad in the College of Human Ecology. I got my master's degree in adult education in May 2002, and doctorate in education in December 2006.

"I currently work at UT’s Center for Literacy Studies, conducting workshops for parents and teachers about the importance of family involvement in children’s education, and I also teach classes in Human Development across the Lifespan for UT/CEHHS/CFS. I currently live in Knoxville, am married to my high school sweetheart, have four children, and four grandchildren.
