Meet Don Neuner

When years did you attend Gordon?

1965-1970

Why did you choose to attend Gordon?

Well I went to the high school, but my senior year I took a couple classes at the college to get a head start before going to Georgia Tech.

What was your favorite class?

I enjoyed all my classes, the exception would be chemistry. If I had to pick one subject it would be the history courses I had to take since I enjoy learning about the past.

What is your favorite memory that you have had at Gordon?

Playing football on the high school team was one of my favorite memories. I played guard, tackle, linebacker, defensive end, and punter. Positions moved around a lot back in the day and it was a small team.

Were here any clubs, organizations or sports you participated in while a student here?

I was on the golf team and beta club. I believe I was in the math club as well 

Where do you currently reside?

Fayetteville, GA

Tell me a little bit about your immediate family

My wife is a retired elementary music specialist, we have a son who is a senior at The George Washington University in Washington D.C.

Tell me a little bit about what you do for work?

I am semi-retired, I’ve been in the consulting business for about 30 years. No full-time work for me right now. The field of work I do is a lot of retail department stores and retail operations.

With my masters in industrial management I started out with the JC Penney Catalog distribution center in Atlanta as a manager, then I switched fields into industrial engineering which is how I got into to consulting area and did a lot of work with retail distribution. After that I went on my own with a group of other engineers and we’ve been doing our own thing ever since.
