He put that degree to work in a wholesale paper, plastic and janitorial products distribution business. His products were sold to clients for use in their business, including food packaging and preparation, and food service equipment and supplies; janitorial products, including cleaning chemicals, equipment, and supplies; and retail packaging, including custom printed packaging and supplies.

“Away for 25 years, I returned to Lancaster and read several news articles written by SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon mentors. I was acquainted with a member who encouraged me to apply to be a mentor. I have been involved in many organizations and SCORE stands out where everyone I have met is enthusiastically dedicated to the mission of SCORE Chapter 16. I look forward to helping others be successful.”
