Tell us a bit about your work here at OHB. What’s a typical day like for you?

There’s rarely anything typical about any day. It’s the whole “box of chocolates” idea.

Of what are you most proud during your time at OHB?

I’m always grateful when a former youth stops by to let us know how well he is doing, to tell us he appreciates the time spent working with us, or just because.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

The pond or really most areas outside are my favorite. We work hard to make the campus look good.

Convincing my wife that I was worth marrying almost 33 years ago
