Mr. Temple enjoys cooking and fishing. He is always interested in sharing recipes and learning new dishes. He organized numerous cultural potlucks on his undergrad campus, where was chapter president of Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society. He led explosive chapter growth. His college soon recruited him to bring the same level of growth to their Honor’s program. In his time in these two positions, he helped motivate hundreds of students to take action which allowed them to receive scholarships ranging from $1500.00 to Full Tuition scholarships. In his first year in this position, he achieved participation of a five-year high. He understands the value of choices must be made clear before the sacrifices which are needed to achieve them. He hopes to inspire your child to go beyond the easy and strive for achievement.
