In this address, I will illustrate how my 4-year study for a Bachelor of Science at Drake University affected my life in the way a pebble in a pond creates ever-widening ripples. Those ripples then reach others and impact them in combined and expanding ways. Along the way in my Life after Drake, important influences would amplify what Drake started. Two key persons to play that part resulted directly from a vital relationship I developed as an undergraduate with Dr. Scott Wood. So while this is a look at my life after Drake, I wish to acknowledge the specific influences I encountered at Drake that helped establish crucial driving forces for all that would unfold. In particular, I wish to dedicate a portion of my time to Dr. Wood’s important presence at Drake University. He is no longer with us, but his influence continues, in my life after Drake and in the broader discipline and practice that he helped to shape on a massive scale.
