Accounting, 1972

Accountant for Susquehanna Health, Williamsport

I served two terms as a board member and treasurer of Lycoming's Alumni Association Executive Board (AAEB). I assumed the responsibilities for the annual homecoming golf tournament, which was re-named the Thomas Croyle Memorial Golf Tournament, in memory of my Theta Chi brother who died tragically in 2007.

I have served as a statistician for athletic events, as a commencement usher and greeter, and was a valuable member of the committee charged with choosing a new athletics logo for the College. I have organized multiple events and reunions for his Theta Chi fraternity and am a steadfast supporter of alumni social events.

I encourage other alumni to become more involved with the College, and I continually recruit AAEB members, volunteers for committees and participants for alumni events. In 2012, I also was recognized with the Dale V. Bower Service Award, which is given to an individual for outstanding service rendered to Lycoming.

My wife, Karen, and I reside in Williamsport and have a daughter, Jenni, and a son, Brian, who graduated from Lycoming in 2002.
