A Career of Serving: From the Navy to the Classroom
Alfredo and Molly Pargas each pursued their master's in teaching degrees in different ways, but arrived at the same result. Molly took a mixture of courses at the main ODU campus, online, and at a nearby navy base, while Alfredo earned his degree entirely online, progressing through coursework on deployments to Africa and South America with his Navy Special Warfare Group.
