College & Graduate School


Roberto attended college while he was still in the military.  He attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.  During college, he took a lot of psychology, sociology, and history classes.  He earned his associates degree in 1979 from the University of South Carolina.  

Dr. Stein, Roberto’s history teacher at the University of South Carolina, was the greatest teacher he had in his life:  Listen to the link below to hear more.

Roberto finished his bachelor’s degree in social studies through the University of the State of New York school system in 1980.

In 1981, he finished his master’s degree in human resources management from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California after 13 months.  Roberto was working and taking care of his family while he was earning this degree.

Roberto says that since he has been working with people all of his life, he needed to understand psychology and how to deal with them.  He wanted to try to get the best out of the people that he was working with.  Roberto wanted to learn how people tick. He loved psychology just like history.  

One of the lessons that he learned in college and graduate school was:

“No matter what you do, you can’t please everyone.” – Roberto Molinary

Roberto learned how to help people to the best of his ability because it brought him immense joy.
