He discovered that he loved the college campus and wanted to help others earn their degrees and become successful members of the workforce so he continued his education, earning a Master’s Degree in Higher Education in 1976 from The George Washington University and a Doctorate of Higher Education from the University of Houston in 1997.

After a faithful career in education, he retired in 2011 from Tarrant County College where he served as Vice President for Continuing Education Services. Mike loved the beach, especially walking the boardwalk in Ocean City. He and his wife moved back to the East Coast in 2016 to be near the beach, family and friends. Mike had a kind heart and deeply cared about his family and friends. He was an only child but had many cousins and friends that he considered his sisters and brothers.
