Waxhaw Club Vice President and Tail Twister
Upon graduation from WVU with a forestry degree in 1971 I became Superintendent of Chief Logan state park in Logan WV. Second busiest state park in WV at the time. 3,305 acres. In the mid 70s I joined the Logan Lions Club. Elected president twice and other positions.
In the mid 1980s I started taking night classes at Marshall University and achieved a Masters degree in Occupational Health and Safety Administration with a 4.0 average 1n 1990.
In 1990 I became the safety officer for the City Of Roanoke Virginia. I joined the Cave Spring Lions Club where I became president twice and loads of other jobs. In 1993 I became the Public Risk Manager for the City of Roanoke. Not long after that I moved my club affiliation to the Roanoke Valley Breakfast Lions Club where I was president twice and many other jobs.. In 2001 the 5500 member PRIMA (public risk management association) asked me to represent the United States and Canada at the ALARM (Association of Local Area Risk Managers) conference in Manchester England. It was a wonderful 12 day trip with 4 days in London, then 4 in Manchester, and finally 4 in Watford.
About this time Berkley Risk invited me to be on the Board of Directors of the States Self-insured Risk Retention Group and The Board of trustees.
I retired in 2009 and moved to Indian Land in 2017. Then I joined the Waxhaw Lions Club.
I have had an interesting life.
Waxhaw Lions Club members meet at 6:30 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at various Waxhaw locations.
