Let’s page back to 1973. I was pondering high school graduation here in Lancaster and my focus was what is next with my life. My options were college, technical school, full time employment or the military.
The military was the least desirable – with the Vietnam War on the wane and the draft by lottery halted. Regardless of my choice, I had to have an income.
Both my parents worked for Springs and gave me every opportunity to succeed but with an older brother already in college they could not afford to pay my way to school.
