Post-Lycoming Experiences Family time, playing tenor sax in my band, and living life to the fullest Greatest Accomplishment I worked in sales until this year, making commissions in my sales job which put me in a good position to retire comfortably and have plenty left over for my kids when I croak. I did not admire guys who retired early and had their wife continue working. I am glad that after my wife had our children, she stopped full-time sales, and she did part-time jobs around bringing them up. It made a difference. Both kids have a strong work ethic — one was a soloist at ABT and did ballet around the world, and the youngest is making big bucks saving people as a nurse anesthetist. Reunion?

Lunch time always had multiple tables of Pinochle, Hearts, and Bridge Lycoming Escapades Being the son of Dr. Loring Priest, I did not identify myself, as such, to others. I was actually incognito playing cards in the Student Union. I was just Bob. Apparently, many knew I was on campus, but didn’t know it was me. I would love getting others to talk about their courses, and especially sought more comments from the history students. Two months on, I was playing bridge with Kip Buckingham (a person I played some with at the Williamsport Bridge Club). Kip blurted out my full name. Sandy Goodyear ‘71 (history) was on my left and went white as a sheet, “What’s your name?” she asked. “Bob,” I replied. “Bob what?” came the reply. After a few moments, the shock turned to laughter and nothing in the relationships changed. Lyco Friends Bobbie Goodyear, Bernie Lansberry, and a crew of too many others whose names I have long since forgotten. Actually, I reconnected with Bobbie Goodyear in 2018 as she gave up social bridge (having lost too many partners) and joined the Harrisburg Bridge Club. Stay in Touch I maintained no real contacts. Other than the alumni office, most of my contact has been with Roger Crebs and the wrestling program, having been an avid fan (and contributor) since I graduated. I never actually wrestled, but always loved the individual, win or lose, no excuses, aspect of the sport. Interests Politics and numbers. Worked two years for the PA Democratic State Committee before moving the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee. In 1990, I moved over to the Office of Demographic Analysis. In the census cycles (1990-1991 and 2000-2001), I was one of just three or four people drawing new Legislative and Congressional districts for our caucus. In 1991, I was the lone analysist drawing Congressional Districts for consideration by the Master appointed by the PA Supreme Court. My map was chosen by the Master and became the districts for the decade. Difference Lycoming Made I was aimless coming in and while there. During my senior year, there was a Special Election for State Senator in Lycoming County. An individual named Don Paul, Democratic Chair from York County, was running the democratic candidate’s campaign. I loved politics, but I hated face-to-face contacts. I learned there were multiple people behind every politician, and I found my niche. Post-Lycoming Experiences Following Lycoming athletics. Most importantly wrestling, but also soccer. Believing sports is an integral part of a well-rounded, small college experience, I have given close to half my contributions to the Warrior Club funds. Obviously, the majority of my contributions go to the Loring B. Priest Research Fund, the fund established by former Professor Thomas Barnes upon my father’s death in 1984.
