I graduated from Madison High School in January 1956. At that time the Madison school district was located in Royal Oak Township.

After graduating from Michigan State University in 1961 I returned to the Madison School District as a teacher and coach for the next 25 years. Royal Oak Township had become Madison Heights while I was working my Bachelor of Science degree.

I received my Masters degree from Central Michigan University in 1976.

I was blessed by GOD before accepted JESUS CHRIST as my personal savior.
