About Richard—

“From the Maine Senator Angus King & columnist Charlie Pierce; this is a story about People, Not Ideology. I am a retired public school teacher (30 years) at Easley Junior High, Walhalla High, & Pendleton High School. I coached football, basketball, track, and started cross country programs at WHS & PHS. My last four women’s track teams were county & conference champions and had not lost a meet in 3 years. I also was a certified SC High School League basketball official for 9 years. Other school duties over the years included prom, science fair, and School Improvement Council. Perhaps my most important extracurricular activity occurred at PHS with involvement in the World Class Partnership Exchange Program with the Nicolson Institute in Stornoway, Scotland which paved the way for my first trip abroad. My father, a Korean War Vet died in 1998 and a few years after that, my Mom began her battle with colon cancer that eventually took her life in 2013. This led to my experiences with tonight’s topic that certainly is not unique for those of us who have or will have aging parents.”
