40 under 40 - Christopher Babcock '01
How has having a Springfield College degree impacted you professionally?
Being able to think through a lens of Spirit, Mind, and Body has allowed me to be a better leader since I'm able to learn more about my Cast Members as individuals, which then allows me to find their motivation, allowing them to grow.
Who influenced you when you were a student at Springfield College and explain the role they played in your life?
Craig Poisson always showed patience, whether it was in class or around the athletic office. I learned to always take a beat before jumping into a situation in order to think of all possible outcomes.
If you could share one piece of advice with today's current Springfield College student, what would it be?
Wear something SC related when you're traveling. You'll be amazed the places that I've seen those maroon letters on a hat or a sweatshirt!
Who do you want to thank personally for the role they have played in your success?
My wife, Rose.
