Dail truly loves his job; he states, “I can honestly say there is no better place to be employed than BRTC. I personally enjoy being part of the BRTC family and touching the lives of so many students over the years as well as some of the friends I have gained here over the years are irreplaceable. I truly find it so rewarding to be able to help someone who is willing to help themselves. I have found that teaching is a calling, not just a job. I will say that being here each day is something I truly look forward to.”
