On 1/16/19 Barbara and I went to the new Hard Rock in Atlantic City to celebrate our anniversary. We met Barbara’s cousin there and we all went to the Comedy Club around 7:45PM. Half way up the escalator and the hand rail stopped but the escalator kept going up. Barbara’s Cousin lost his balance and fell back towards me. I grabbed him and turned towards the side and he regained his balance but I now couldn’t regain mine. Down I went and I turned so I wouldn’t hurt my back but the head hit the escalator stair so hard it knocked the step out of alignment. I lost 2 units of blood and was rushed to the Trauma Center at Atlantic Care Hospital. I spent over 4 hours with a plastic surgeon and received over 300 stitches while I was awake. Do I have a lot to be thankful for on birthday number 72. The one picture was taken exactly 60 days after the accident. Nothing broken only bruised and for all the students I had in 30 years who called me hard headed when it came to the rules I guess you were right

31 years ago I was Principal at Kent County High School on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. I also served as Chairman of the National Association of Secondary School Principals. I can’t help but reflect on my days at RRHS and our Principal Mr Bennett. He would not have believed any of this.

Hi Steve. My sister Terri is in charge of the RRHS 50th reunion and she's trying to get in touch with your sister Connie. Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Hope all is well with you Steve.
