“After being a Quality Control Chemist with DSM Chemicals, Anne passed on Purdue’s graduate school offer to raise our three children — Allison, Jeffrey and Marissa,” Tuggle said.
Major Tuggle completed a master’s degree in computer engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. “I’m all but dissertation (ABD) on a doctorate,” he said. Currently, he works as Senior Technical Fellow with PeopleTec, Inc.
