I am a Sumter County native and have lived in the county most of my life. I graduated from Plains High School, attended Norman Junior College and then graduated from Florida State University with a B.S. in Education. I served in the military during the Vietnam War and after returning from Germany, I completed my Master's Degree in Education from Georgia Southwestern.  I was employed as a counselor with the State of Georgia for 34 years. During that time I worked with people with disabilities.

I have been a part of Southland for the last fourteen years, working primarily in athletics.  My precious wife Nancy is presently the librarian at the school. We have two children who are Southland graduates. We also have two granddaughters who are presently attending Southland.
