Comments:

I played 4 years of football at Duke University and graduated in 1975. After graduation I became an assistant football coach at Duke and at the University of Virginia. I received my Masters of Education during this period.
In 1981 I joined American Hospital Supply as a sales representative and began a career in Healthcare which has lasted 34 years - American Hospital Supply, Baxter Healthcare, Allegiance Healthcare and Cardinal Health. Really, because of mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs, the same company.
I work today with Salter Labs, a small medical device manufacturer owned by Roundtable Healthcare Partners, a private equity firm. This is the 3rd Roundtable owned company that I have worked for since leaving Cardinal in 2001.
Kim and I have moved to Dallas, Texas after 19 years in Scottsdale.
We are looking forward to a final retirement in about 3 to 4 years and plan to split time between Scottsdale, Dallas and Wilmington, NC.

School Story:

High School was a great time for me. I developed some wonderful friendships and started to learn a little about what life has in store for you. I parlayed high school athletic and academic success into a great college experience at Duke University. The Duke environment helped me to forge myself into the successful business person and family man that I am today.
Success is always built upon preparation, hard work and perseverance-- WJ provided a laboratory for me to hone those skills. For that opportunity I will always be grateful.
One regret that I have always had is not having had the opportunity to spend significant time in the DC/Maryland area. I have had to work to stay connected to my WJ experience and my good high school friends. Life, though as they say, goes on.

Scott was a teammate of mine on the Walter Johnson basketball team. He was not the best player, nor was he the most talented, not by a long shot. However he always worked very hard and did a lot of what you would call, the "grunt work" - taking charges, diving for loose balls, etc. He was also a very personable guy and very likeable.

One always wonders why some people have their lives cut so short. Some would say it it is part of a "plan" but I am not sure that the planning filters down to that low a level. Sometimes people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time in a world of random events.

Bruce - nice to see the card and it provides a nice opportunity to remember Scott. These things help to keep memories alive and consequently those who have left us in our collective minds. Thank you for taking the time to share this with everyone.

Now Annual Dinner with my oldest friend, George Pratt, class of 1972. We look just about the same as we did in 3rd grade at Larchmont Elementary.
George, along with my other team mates, opened the holes that made me a star tailback. Thanks guys. You deserve the credit i just ran through the openings.

Great reunion this past weekend. Met several folks that I really did not know from my time at WJ and that was very nice. Julie and Liz; I wish I had known you in 1971.
Also got to hang out with my old football teammates, the senior core attached. We had a small team with regard to numbers (less than 25) but we made up for it with heart and athletic ability. Perhaps one of the best of all time at WJ and we get better every year that passes. HaHa!!
Thanks to everyone who attended. It means a lot to me.

Sorry to hear about Walter's passing. He was a nice guy and a good teammate. 

When he finally got a chance to join the varsity basketball team he became an offensive star. He was a great shooter. I could not shut him down and I was a decent defender. It was also great to have him on your pick up game team because the opposition could not stop him scoring either. Sometimes you could play all afternoon. 

I don't believe I have seen Walter since the early 70's but he was always nice to me. I am very sorry to learn of his passing and I offer my most sincere condolences to his family.
