Up Close With ... Dr. Robert Pearigen Title: President, Millsaps College Favorite Books: I enjoy the classics such as William Shakespeare, John Milton, Leo Tolstoy, and Eudora Welty. If I could only choose one book it would be the Bible. First Job: My father was an independent pharmacist in Memphis. From the time I could reach the counter, I was there helping him. Proudest Moment as a Leader: My wife Phoebe and I were able to take a two-week vacation last summer. I learned upon my return that when the team was confronted with challenging situations they would not say “What would Rob do? Instead, they would say “What questions would Rob ask?” I was encouraged that my team was focused on asking important questions to solve challenging problems.
