He really enjoy seeing that light bulb turn on in the eyes of each and every student that he comes in contact with. he tries to keep the following statement in the forefront of everything that he does. "Always remember one thing, everyone that you come in contact with becomes a part of you and most importantly you become a part of them." If we all would live by that simple rule, life would be much more enjoyable. He loves coaching football and softball at Kennedy.
