Ms. Duggin brings a unique perspective to her professional, community and charitable endeavors. Ms. Duggin was born and raised on Mon Luis Island on the Gulf Coast, a small, rural community 26 miles south of Mobile, Alabama. The islanders lived a subsistence existence. The island had a single paved road and boasted a one-room schoolhouse, which Ms. Duggin attended through sixth grade. Her world expanded in high school, when the Island's Catholic parish arranged transportation to an all-black Catholic school in Mobile, and expanded even further when she won a scholarship to Edgewood College – her first venture out of the South, and her first experience in a predominantly white school. This courage and determination to succeed have motivated Ms. Duggin throughout her life, and have made her an inspiring and empathic leader to those around her.more » « less
