Tina Savant Gibson ’82 has always loved words. She spent twenty-something fabulous years in financial services marketing as a marketing director and a marketing vice president. She even had her own biz as a marketing consultant. But these days, her love for Jesus is taking her words in a different direction. Her heart is overflowing with life stories. She has launched a blog and is writing and speaking for Him. Tina and her husband, Gibby (aka “Frank” ’80) have been on a great adventure together for almost a quarter of a century!

Tina’s story: I didn’t choose Malone. God did. My family had just moved to Ohio from Illinois due to my Dad’s cancer. As a junior transfer student, I visited Malone only because it was a 45 minute drive to my folks. But instantly, I felt at home. I had some awesome professors (Burley Smith and Alvin Anderson to name just 2), participated in Dr. Lair’s magnificent NYC trip during December break, and was even crowned Homecoming Queen while Russ Taft (look him up!) sang at my coronation.
The best thing? God used my Malone experience to lead me closer to Him! He put wonderful people along my path. After graduation, I worked a year in the Malone Admissions Office. My Dad died during that time and the love and support I felt from my Malone family is as fresh in my heart as yesterday.Today, that heart is yearning to share my faith with others through writing, speaking, and blogging. And, I know that my Malone experience has prepared me for this new venture because I didn’t choose it. God did!
