Dr. Sims’ thoughts on her students at TCNJ:

“During my 27 years at TCNJ my fondest memories are of the relationships I have developed with my students and often their parents. It touches my heart to know that I have made a difference in some of their lives. I have always tried to empower students and help them to be, and do, their best.”
