Mr. Wood's first job was sailing on ocean-going ships in the merchant marine. "My dad used to say 'shape up or ship out', so I am not sure what it means that my first job was sailing."

From delivering jet fuel to NATO bases in the Arctic Circle to taking food to the starving millions in Sudan, Mr. Wood has a broad range of experience in the world to draw from.

This court allows more individual attention for each child. The court system was credited with cutting the amount of fights in schools by one-half.
Mr. Wood served almost 10 years as Scoutmaster for local troops. Mr. Wood continues his involvement in the community teaching essential life skills to the young men who will be tomorrows leaders.
