SPECIAL INTERESTS:   I enjoy hunting and fishing, so besides chasing whitetail, turkey & pheasant around the midwest, I try to plan a nice hunting/fishing trip each year to some far off exotic place. We’ve been to Canada, Colorado and even South Africa for everything from Black Bear, Elk & African plains game. Throw in a few fishing excursions for Ocean Stripper, Northern Pike, Walleye, Rainbow Trout and that just about sums it up.
 
HONORS OR RECOGNITION:    It has always been an honor serving as TKE President 1980-81. I also was a member of Cardinal Key, Blue Key, Tri-Beta Biology Fraternity, Student Senate. I graduated 2nd in my class at UMKC School of Dentistry for which I am forever grateful to those science professors that pushed me so hard in undergraduate school at NWMSU.
