Working on his Ph.D. in higher education leadership from Dallas Baptist University, Mr. Poole has residence life management in his background. His current position entails working with the operations of intramurals, health services, residence life, food service, Greek advising, and cheerleading.

Mr. Poole is on the national board of directors for the Railroad and Locomotive Historical Society, a group of 2,400 dedicated to preserving railroad-related history and technology. “I have my fourth railroad-related book being evaluated by a publisher now, and have signed a contract for a fifth book. The fifth book is a corporate history. It is also railroad-related, but it is unique because it chronicles the three generations of a family who have run a very successful group of railroads since 1937.”
