I was just thinking today about some people who were friends during my High School years, people who were influential in the way I lived during those years. During high school I was active in three Christian organizations, two were with other kids from school and the other was with kids from other schools. The two at South Eugene were Campus Life and Young Life, which were non denominational Christian groups, which were about using fun activities to introduce us to the Christian Message. The Campus Life leaders that I really remember are Bart Brewer and Diane Hoisington. Bart was a very funny man who was a good comedic actor, who often would do skits as Herkymeyer, the something. He cared a lot about the kids that he was befriended and would often attend events that we were participating in. I remember once when he loaded four of us in his 240 Z to go to a track meet. A guy and a gal in the passenger seat and Tim Losaco and I laying in the back with our legs hanging out and holding onto the hatchback. Diane Hoisington was striking and very, very nice. The thing I remember about her other than her concern for us was the white patch she had in the front of her hair. She told us that when she was very young, her black hair started to turn white and someone prayed for her and it stopped. The Young Life leaders who influenced my later decision to work with Young Life were Mickey Elfers and Charlie Marshall. They were only at SEHS for one year, my senior year, I didn’t get to know them very well. Thank you all for your influence.
