In elementary school, I made my first appearance in the local newspaper… twice! Both were class field trips. In one class, we had built birdhouses that were placed in local farms and nature preserves.
I was the Vice-President of the S.A.D.D. (Students Against Drunk Driving) chapter of my high school for two years.
I was on Safety Patrol in the 5th grade. At the end of the school year, the students who participated were rewarded with a field trip to the Detroit Tigers game. I don’t remember who they played or which team won. And, I burned from the sun that day.
