I have had two articles published in the Pentecostal Evangel, and recently helped edit the book, "Unfounded Loyalty: the Love Affair Between American Blacks and the Democratic Party" by Rev. Wayne Perryman.


I have been involved in Northwest’s Athletic program in various ways ever since 1967, as athletics are a hobby of mine. Marilyn and I have been married over 42 years and are still in love and best friends. All three of our sons attended Northwest and two are ministers and one is a high school history teacher. We have four granddaughters and two grandsons.
