MARIETA 'MO' OGLESBY

MARIETA 'MO' OGLESBYGrowing up in a small town with older parents, I heard about values and having a good name almost every day.  Being a person of action, I always felt there should be “actions” to back up your values and good name.  I feel there should be a special project where you can leave a part of yourself forever. Paul Quinn College is that special project for me!  Throughout my career, I have experienced the many cycles of real estate. With each cycle, I always felt I was growing and receiving strength and knowledge for the next project.  As I look back, I see that every experience was preparing me to take good care of Paul Quinn College.  I love to wake up in the morning and know I am on my way to campus.  Interacting with the students is the best part of my day! 

I have always been blessed to have a career that is full of challenges and excitement.  I have been employed in the safety, security, risk assessment, crime prevention, and     commercial property management throughout my career life.  I have provided the security and property management for shopping centers, industrial parks, office buildings, multi-family communities, and now Paul Quinn College. 
These different venues have given me the opportunity to write procedure and training manuals, emergency procedures, and develop long-term relationships with the police, fire, and city officials in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  I have developed skills in operational budget forecasting, finance, human resources, problem resolution, construction, and staff training.  Every experience prepared me for overseeing our beautiful campus. 
I am married to my soul mate, Don, and we have one son, Wesley.  Wesley and his wife, Erin, live in the Dallas area.  Don and I also have two very spoiled dogs, Precious and Gracie.
It is a challenge and an honor to be a part of the Paul Quinn College history and the Quinnite Nation.  Go Tigers!
