Your loss is shared by many. Dr. Garrison was the department chair when I earned my BS and MS in Business Education and Administrative Services. He demonstrated a true love for education and always supported his students with encouragement. He had a fantastic smile and a laugh that made his eyes sparkle. He encouraged me to reach beyond my introversion into leadership positions. I will always remember him fondly.
