Donna Matthews




Donna grew up on the south side of Chicago and upon completing high school, she attended and participated on the varsity volleyball team at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. She left West Point before finishing her degree and attended the University of Illinois at Chicago. Shortly thereafter, she married a military officer and “joined” the Army. She spent over 20 years providing philanthropic assistance to many military and educational organizations as she lived all over the country and the world.

Donna received her bachelor of science degree in mathematics from Methodist (College) University in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 1990. She immediately began her professional career as a high school mathematics teacher and a volleyball and soccer coach. In 1997, Donna received her master of education in mathematics degree from Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina. Since then she has taught at several community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and universities across the south. Donna recently completed her doctorate in higher education administration and policy at the University of Florida and is proud to be a member of the Gator Nation.

When not teaching and/or tutoring, Donna enjoys going to the beach, riding her bike, and playing the acoustic guitar. She also likes to swim and play tennis and racquetball. Donna is the proud mother of two children, Daniel and Danis, and a granddaughter, Taytem.
