Meet Chris Goplin, supervisor of respiratory care at CHI St. Francis in Grand Island. He’s been working in respiratory care for more than a decade, a job he “sort of fell into” straight out of high school.
“I’m so glad I did,” he says. “I’ve been an asthmatic my entire life, and then learned how to help people who struggle with breathing and lung disease. That was my way to get into it.”
Paige Hild (nee Benner) ‘17, Central City, originally came to Doane to become a registered dietician. She fell in love with the campus, its beauty, its rural setting, the people, the community. When she was told she would have to transfer after her sophomore year to continue her dietician studies, she didn’t want to leave the place or the people behind.
“I enjoyed the small town feel where I knew almost everyone,” Paige says. “I liked the small class sizes where I felt comfortable enough to ask questions and the professors knew me.”
