Having attended Northwood University Florida along with his wife Monica and his daughter Alexandria, James Thompkins recently graduated with a dual degree in Business Management, and Accounting and is thankful for the opportunity which he believes is the answer to a prayer.

After the passing of his mother in 2009, Thompkins moved from Winder, Georgia to West Palm Beach, Florida along with his family, while also relocating their family-owned commercial cleaning business.

After praying to God about the direction he should take in his new South Florida life, he said that God directed him to pursue a business degree and led him to Northwood University Florida.

Upon being very close to achievement of the degree, he again received direction from The Lord to pursue his accounting degree.

Soon joined at Northwood by his wife Monica who is now pursuing a business management degree through Northwood's adult degree program and his daughter Alexandria, a Royal Palm Beach High School graduate who is pursuing an international business degree, Thompkins is on track to fulfill what he believes to be his calling in life - the management of his own accounting firm.

Thompkins was awarded a dual business management and accounting degree at Northwood Florida's commencement ceremony on Tuesday, May 7th.
