Rambling Man

Terry Redmon
Terry Redman ('70) in 1970.

I just read my fall 2023 UNT publication -- it brings back a lot of memories! Joe Greene and I were friends back in the late '60s. Oh my, I just realized that was over 53 years ago! After UNT, I received two master's degrees from Central Michigan. I worked in their intramural department like I did at UNT. I retired as a school administrator very young because while working for the UNT and CMU intramurals, both colleges were paying for my retirement, which I did not realize at the time. While being a community education director, I volunteered to build many of the parks in Niles, Michigan. Then I moved to Florida to do the same there. In 2003, the Florida Parks and Recreation Association honored me with the State of Florida Volunteer of the Year award. Twenty years later, I am still volunteering and living in Sarasota County. Last year, I again went to Orlando to receive the FPRA Volunteer of the Year award. One more story -- I met Joe Greene during the intramural weightlifting competition. We realized his apartment was next to the house I was renting. I purchased football coach Rod Rust's old sailboat. We used to play handball when it was just a new sport. Enough rambling.
