French Camp, MS
I started building telescopes in the 8th grade more than 50 years ago when inspired by a teacher who showed me Saturn's rings. I've been teaching and directing the Rainwater Observatory and Planetarium for 47 years. Along the way I've acquired a wife of 47 years, 4 children, grandchildren, a degree from Davidson College, and two masters degrees. Of many honors, being a part of SSEP is among the highest.

Quote: "Any professional science educator needs to 'have their battery charged' regularly in order to keep their enthusiasm and motivation high. Participation in SSEP workshops and teleconferences has renewed my excitement in working with students and teachers by allowing me to meet and interact with leading scientists in the field of solar system exploration. In short, it's been GREAT!!!"
