Dr. Chris Yandle – Showing His Love Through Lunch Notes
Dr. Chris Yandle is a former college athletics public relations professional who has fully transitioned to a career in academia. He has dedicated his professional career to education and being a bright example for his kids. A previously published college textbook author, he is an adjunct college instructor. Chris and his wife, Ashleigh, live in Mandeville, Louisiana with their two children, Addison and Jackson. Every morning, he wrote his daughter a note about life, school, or growing up. He would put those notes into her book bag or her lunch box to find later in the day. Yandle shared the notes on Twitter and Facebook using #DadLunchNotes. Before he knew it, the notes became something others were seeking each day, including Addison’s teacher and principal. Check out his book here.
