After graduating Chilhowee High School, I earned a B.S.E. in English and Secondary Health/Physical Education at CMSU. I began teaching junior high English and coaching junior high basketball and track in March of 1975 in the Ferguson-Florissant School District in St. Louis County. Three years later I moved closer to home and taught English and coached varsity basketball and track at Nevada High School. While at Nevada I completed my masters degree in guidance and counseling through CMSU. Five years later I moved to Clinton where I taught two years of middle school English, seven years of high school English and five years of yearbook, before moving into the special education department as a psychological examiner for the remainder of my career. Along the way I coached middle school football, boys jv basketball, and varsity girls basketball two different stints. After enjoying half a year of retirement, I finished the year teaching English and coaching basketball at Montrose. The following fall God and Gene Reid led me to teach middle school English at CCA, and that winter I coached the first CCA girls’ basketball team.
My wife, Patty, and I enjoy our five children and ten grandchildren (all under the age of six). I like to hunt and fish at every opportunity, and I serve the Lord through FBC of Clinton and CCA.
