Attended Anderson College and Ball State University after H.S. Upon returning to Ashland in 1973, I began work with the City of Ashland in the Water Pollution Control Division( Maintenance and Operations until 1984, then became Chief Operator and Superintendent until retirement in 2003 after 30 years of service. )

I was introduced to Ashland Men through conversations about a vision to reach Men in our City and County to take major strides in becoming better Men, Husbands and Fathers. The emphasis on men taking a greater role in praying for themselves... and for others struck a chord with me.
