“To know that even one
life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.”

||Thank you for visiting
my personal web site. In addition to allowing me to share my
philosophy and interests, hopefully, you will enjoy and benefit
from some of the writing and fund-raising tips. Because I love
to cook, I posted award-winning recipes, too.
My philosophy is to be thankful for each day and to make a
positive difference. My strengths are writing, public speaking,
and photography. My passions are promoting aviation, humane
education, heritage preservation and women’s history.
||Because I write every day, my daily
“editorial prayer” is: “God, please grant me the serenity to
accept the people I cannot change: The courage to change the
person who can be changed; The wisdom to know that person is me;
And, enough English expertise to know ‘me’ is the incorrect
In addition to earned academic credentials and University
teaching experience, my past newspaper, radio and live
television broadcast background, are skills which are important
to accomplishing my many projects.
||One of my radio station managers over my
ten+ years of on-air programs said, “Penny is extremely
organized. She works well with our staff, community leaders and
volunteers. She ascertains the needs of our community. Dr. Penny
produces and hosts our weekly public affairs programming. She
sees that our federal broadcast requirements are met. She is
involved in our community both as an outstanding volunteers and
business leader.” Nice words and radio offered great experience
at that time of pre-digital and black and white photographs!
Recent honors: Greater Granby Area

In addition to being listed in many Who’s Who (WW of American
Women, Business and Professional Achievers; International
Professional & Business Women; American Education; Empowering
Executives and Professionals In America & In the West;
Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs), earning a US Small
Business Administration Media Advocate award prompted Nebraska’s
Kay Orr, the first Republican woman to be elected Governor in
the United States, to send me a personal letter of
congratulations. She wrote, “Your support of business through
your writing expertise, your business enterprise and volunteer
service to the community is an example for others to follow.” I
am blessed to continue to use my energy and special skills to
publish photographs, magazine articles and books.
