Person in history you’d most like to meet and why: Lord Baden-Powell, the father of the scouting organization. I would like to inspire and lead like him.

Why Payson? Climate is mild. Small hometown for my kids who were dragged across the world.

Favorite teacher: Doug Fullerton was the “dummies” math teacher. He taught me that I wasn’t dumb.

Favorite subject: I always looked forward to choir. There were no tests and there were plenty of pretty girls.

Favorite year in school: My senior year. Easy classes, I knew how to have good, clean fun, and I ditched school to go fly.
