FAVORITE VACATION SPOT: Charleston, South Carolina
PERSON I ADMIRE: My father was a great life example. And my mother-in-law. She graduated from Penn State with a bachelor of science in home economics, the only degree offered to her. She went on to work for Hershey and used her chemistry studies to develop recipes still in use today. She was a hard worker and a great role model for my wife, daughters and grandchildren.
