  1. A career and contributions of huge positive impact on kids for decades! The wrestlers, the students (teacher) and the Boy Scouts (leader) were made SO much more effective due to Skip’s contributions. My son was fortunate and privileged to benefit from all three! Skip and his family continue to be the pride of this community and the communities they serve. (And don’t forget the wife/mom (Diane) who backed up all of this as well!) Thank you Skip and family!!
