Watkins said that in one of the areas they served, their stake presidency consisted of a beef rancher, a cherry orchard farmer and a government agriculture worker. Watkins said her husband’s truck driving experience came in handy on the snowy, icy roads. Watkins said she and her husband spent 30 months serving in Canada.

“In the 30 months that we were up there, we drove on roads where there were animals, and we never hit an animal, ever,” Watkins said. “They ran into us. Well, only three times, but that’s a whole other story.”

Watkins said now that she had completed three out of four of her goals, all that was left was to get a college education.

On Oct. 12, BYU-Idaho introduced Watkins as a new freshman at BYU-I, according to the BYU-Idaho Admissions Office Facebook page.

“We couldn’t be more proud of her and her decision to start working on a college degree,” according to the BYU-Idaho Admissions Office Facebook page.

Watkins said there were a couple things that she was not used to and she had to get ready for in order to go back to school.

“When I graduated from high school, there was no such thing as an ACT,” Watkins said. “You just applied, and if your grades were good enough, they gave you a scholarship, and you went to school. Now, you gotta’ go take the ACT.”

Watkins said that when she came back to school, she discovered the scientific calculator.

“I had to get a scientific calculator, which I’m learning how to use,” Watkins said. “They’re wonderful. You just push all these little buttons, get the answer and write it down.”

Watkins said one of her favorite things at BYU-I is the spirit she feels here.

“This is a special place, and I get to drive by the temple every morning and every night and feel the spirit there,” Watkins said. “It’s special to be here.”

David Magleby, one of Watkins’ professors and a faculty member in the Department of Teacher Education, said the students and faculty enjoy having Watkins in class and that she brings a light to the class.

“We love to invite her to share life lessons from her position of experience,” Magleby said.  “I smile whenever I see Marcia. She has a true desire to learn. I have felt blessed to have her with us since the first day.”

    This article is a big inspiration. We to can attain our dreams if we really live the gospel faithfully. If the students apply what this wonderful woman has done, we would be happier people and better disciples of Jesus Christ
