“Brian was over there and ended up being the one that figured it out before even learning my name,” she says. “After that we studied together and hung out together with our group of friends before starting to date.” 

St. Pat’s, an event that was already special for the couple, was made even better for them the year that Brian was a St. Patrick’s Knight and Tabitha was on the Queen’s Court for the Trap and Skeet Club. 

In 2014, Brian earned a bachelor’s degree in information science and technology and Tabitha earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. The pair married in August 2015.

Their relationship advice?

“Just have fun and it will work out if it is meant to,” she says. “Being at Rolla we got to experience so many things that are great memories. We have grown up together over the last 10 years. From studying, random Friday nights, and spring break we have gotten to do so much together because of meeting at Missouri S&T.”
