Izmir American (Dept of Defense Overseas School)

Sang Tenor in Choir (Solo: Oh, Shenandoah!); while only a sophomore, I served as The Number One Man on the trampoline on the Gymnastics Team. Also, while yet a sophomore, I placed 9th at the Regional Gymnastics Meet in Columbus, Ohio. Father was transferred to Izmir, Türkiye (ancient, biblical Smyrna). Considered living with the family of the #2 man on the trampoline, but opted instead to stay with my family, which yet had a younger brother & sister! It was a tough decision, but with hindsight, I am so glad I did.
