“I met Justice Marsha Ternus when sitting in a Drake Board of Trustees meeting- I was paired with a new board member and about five students. She was warm, engaging, nonjudgmental and friendly with us all. Later, I found out she was the first woman to become a Supreme Court Chief Justice in the State of Iowa. She could have bragged endlessly about herself, but she didn't. This caught my attention, and I used her as an example in a chapter on "humility" in my first book, Ingredients of Outliers. We’ve remained friends and I have never been let down by my initial impression of her, ” said author, entrepreneur, and emergency medicine physician, John Shufeldt.
