Out of the hundreds of people that I have met, these are the top five that are the most influential. In order of influence, each page of this site will go through my life experiences with these people and how/why they influence me. But first, a small bio:
Skip Freeman was the Assistant Scoutmaster, or ASM, of troop 635 of the Boy Scouts of America. Before that, he was the Scoutmaster, or SM, of our troop. But even more than that, I consider him a mentor, or even a teacher.
Mort & Karen Petersen
The Petersen's were most likely the most influential people in my life. This is because they took me in for two almost three years while my family was securing a place to live. Even now they still offer to shelter me. To repay their kindness, I have helped them our in numerous ways, such as cleaning the house, helping with their bi-yearly yard sale, and even simple things like carrying their boxes and bags.
Mr. Weaver is most likely one of the most very influential people in my life. This is not due to the fact that he was a good teacher, but that he is such a great teacher in both my sophmore and senior year of highschool.
Wally Payne is also a very influential person in my life. Not only does he have a very high ranking position in the Boy Scouts of America, as the District Commissioner, but I have a few personal ties to him from my Cub Scouting years.
