What are you doing now?
I'm a physician, retired last August. I specialized in physical medicine and rehabilitation, so I managed the care of disabled patients.
How did you experience and time at SC shape you?
I had a wonderful experience at Sterling. It's a small college, lots of attention, I got to do things I wouldn't be able to do at bigger colleges. I had the opportunity to be involved in both clubs and sports. I got to know many students and instructors. I knew almost everybody on campus.
What did you enjoy or appreciate most about SC?
I appreciated the fact that I could communicate quite easily with the professors - the opportunity was always there and they were top notch at teaching, and willing to help. I learned a great deal, and they were helpful in getting me into medical school.
Do you have any children or relatives who attended SC?
My brother, Neil '62, went there before I did, and his wife, Jeanette (Eastwood) '63, went there, too - that's where they met.
How are you remaining involved on the campus?
Well, I make visits now and then, from Arizona to Kansas. I have my 50th reunion coming up in a few years, so I'll be returning then. I've been to homecoming a few times and I've kept in touch with Don Reed '68, a former SC employee. I read the literature that comes through the mail and what is on the website. I enjoy the Sterling get-togethers in the Phoenix area from time to time, communications with Amy Thompson '96, director of alumni and parent relations, and the visits with Marvin Dewey, associate vice president for leadership giving and special projects. There are a number of Sterling alumni in the Phoenix metro area.
Do you mind if we include an email address so that people can get a hold of you?
