C. Robert Jones has mentored Miss America finalists, singers, actors and dancers in his education career of more than 50 years. And he says if he could mandate it, he would require all teachers, preachers and lawyers to take courses in his specialty subject – theatre. Jones, a former Gardner-Webb University faculty member who started the theatre arts degree program in 1966, chronicles his lifetime experiences surrounding the stage in his book, titled “I Like It Here! Adventures in the Wild and Wonderful World of Theatre.”
