Comments:

My journey since high school has certainly been circuitous, as I know for many of you as well. Right after high school I was a foreign exchange student in the summer in Guatemala, then went to Illinois for my BS and MS degrees. I continued in graduate school, receiving a PhD from Florida State, and then was hired as the men's tennis coach and a professor at the University of Illinois. I resigned from Illinois in 1987, moved to Florida, and worked as a resort tennis director, until I started a business in 1992, which became the Human Performance Institute. We sold the business and now I work in the Wellness & Prevention business for Johnson & Johnson. Still having a lot of fun, especially with our little guy, whom we adopted from China. Love reading about all of you on this website!!

I’m so sorry to read this about David. He was one of the first people I met when we moved to Alton, when I was 9. He was truly one of the really great guys I knew. My deepest sympathies to Georgia and the entire family.

Sorry to hear that John (Koz) has passed. We spent many nights camping/hiking in Scouts. What a tremendous person! RIP, my friend.
