What’s your passion here? What motivates you to do what you do? I've always been a "hands on" person. Being able to keep the campus running, not always like clockwork ;), keeps me going. I guess I've always had a servant's heart. To be able to do repairs and upgrades around campus is rewarding.
What was your favorite book you read in school? I wasn't an avid reader during school. In later years, I borrowed some Louis L'Amour novels from a friend. Then, I started reading Colt (Chief of Scouts series) by Don Bendell. I loved the Old West and his detailed eye to the imagery and landscape of the heart of America. Probably my favorite from Bendell would have to be Eagle.
What's your favorite North Cross tradition? Senior Buddy. The connection of the exiting students and incoming students is very profound. I worked with Ray Clark over the last two summers. If he was around when the kids were here, he'd always go and try to find his Buddy. Even came by at Christmas time with a present for him.
If you didn't do what you do here, what else would you be doing? Not really sure, but I'm sure it would be something with my hands.
