My dad has always been my biggest fan and, as I often say, the originator of the No Barriers mindset. He’s also a fanatical Princeton Tiger, having been the captain of the football team and a graduate in 1962.

1962: My dad looking studly in his Princeton Football uniform

A couple weeks ago, I had the chance to visit his Alma Mater for the second time to speak at the Jake McCandless speaker series.

It is always fun to cruise around campus and visit my dad’s old collegiate haunts like the Tiger Inn where his picture is still hanging on the wall!

Glad I had the chance to revisit my dad’s old haunts and be welcomed by such a wonderful community.
