Career: Gary retired twelve years ago after teaching English, Speech, and Drama for thirty-two years at North Polk HS where he directed over fifty plays and musicals.
This is a Golden Anniversary for Gary since he began enjoying acting in 1965 while he was a student at Ankeny HS, and realizing what an important role theater has played in his enjoyment of life for the last fifty years as an actor, director, teacher, and eager audience member. He enjoys every day of his retirement including being a Tour Guide at Terrace Hill and planning a winter trip to a warm climate near a sunny beach.
