He was awarded "Teacher of the Year" for the Gordon County School System in Georgia. He currently holds teaching certifications in Georgia and Tennessee. 

"His shows implement state science objectives and are absolutely amazing."

All proceeds from this learning extravaganza will finance the FLY high school National Youth Gathering, which will take place July 1-5, in San Antonio, Texas. Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) youth and adult leaders will visit the city under the theme Live Love(d) based on I John 4:9"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him." (NIV 1984).

FLY will join over 30,000 other high school Lutheran youth from around the world. Held every three years, LCMS Youth Gatherings provide young people an opportunity to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the five days of the Gathering youth spend time together in worship, God’s Word, prayer, song and service.
