Prof who immigrated from Lebanon speaks on experiences, family, faith

George Meghabghab talked about his life as an immigrant American during the March 2 kickoff of a series of presentations sponsored by Roane State’s International Education and Arts and Lectures committees.

George Meghabghab, computer science professor at Roane State Community College was born in Lebanon and lived in France and Georgia before coming to teach at Roane State Community College.

“I rode on many people’s waves. Many people opened the door for me, and many people wanted to shut the door. Sometimes I say whatever happened happened,” he told a crowd at Roane State Community College’s Oak Ridge branch campus as part of a lecture he gave about his life.

“I’m a believer. Allow me to say that. I hope you don’t feel offended that I’m sharing my faith. So, I believe the voice that spoke to me was God’s voice in my life,” he said.

Meghabghab said he was raised Roman Catholic but was “born again” and currently attends Knoxville Praise Tabernacle Church. During his talk he credited a “voice” with leading to specific career decisions.
