Two of the highlights of my career are being named the 1992 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Teacher of the Year and receiving the 1989 Governor's Award for Excellence in Teaching Social Studies.
I am married and the father of two children. My wife works for BB&T. Both of my children currently live in Raleigh. My daughter was a teacher in Nashville but is now a stay-at-home mom with my eight year old granddaughter and my five year old grandson. My son and his wife also have a five year old son and a daughter who will be 3 years old in September. Both of my grandsons are beginning kindergarten this year. He is a physical education specialist in the Wake County Schools and also serves as the state director of men's gymnastics.
