Born: Baltimore, Maryland, 1940
Residence: 135 Green Street, Locust Grove, VA 22508.
Moved to Lake of the Woods in 1994 from Alexandria, VA.
Family: Married to Jean, no children
Education: Masters degree in Education from the University of Maryland with an
additional thirty hours of post graduate credits in mathematics and computer
Occupation: High School Music and Mathematics Teacher (1964 - 1994). While
teaching, I served as facility representative to the teacher's association and
chairman of the high school’s Faculty Advisory Council. Before retirement I
began a second career as a computer programmer with a series of contracts with
the Army Research Institute in Alexandria, VA. When my wife and I moved to
Lake of the Woods, I continued fulfilling computer programming contracts and
began providing professional computer assistance to organizations and
individuals within our community.
Civic Activities: Member of the Lake of the Woods Church and the Orange
County Chamber of Commerce. I served the community as a member of the
Lake of the Woods Planning Committee, a group leader of the Fredericksburg
Personal Computer Users Group, and Vice President of Stage Alive Community
Concert Association. In addition I have been an officer of the Civic Club of Lake
of the Woods for ten years and served as President for three years. Working with
the Civic Club provided me with insight as to what Orange County taxpayers
expect from their leaders.
Objectives: I believe in the value of a public school system that is
dedicated to serving and teaching all children. A large portion of our Orange
County taxes go to support the public schools. The School Board is responsible
for seeing that these funds are spent prudently and in line with the interests of
the community. It is a privilege to serve on the Orange County School
Board and I will work with the other school board members to improve our school
system. This includes encouraging and supporting the administration and
teachers to provide a quality education for all students.
