Fifty years is a long time to reminisce. The teachers and coaches that left an impression on me were Julia Lesser in Mathematics and Coach Charles Turner. Having played footbal in junior and senior high, you never forget your teammates or the coaches. Julia Lesser made mathematics both interesting and intriguing. Coach Charles Turner was a strict disciplinarian and very demanding. The above characteristics helped me develop the accountability, dependability, and resiliency that was useful in my college days, work force and business world.
