I'm Jason. I was a scout in Troop 8 for seven years, and now am what passes for an adult volunteer around here. As a scout, I held many leadership positions, including : Not-even-APL, Assistant Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, (All four of those in the span of one year!) Senior Patrol Leader (for like 1.75 years) and finally, Elder Patrol Z Scout who Does Nothing. (For the remaining .25 years.) Right now I'm between freshman and sophomore year at the University of Michigan, and I'm planning on doing pre-med. Much to the surprise of all of my friends, however, I want to be an English major. Simply shocking. Apart from Scouts and school, I like to do theatre, and have acted in a couple shows, including As You Like It, The Crucible, Parade, The Addams Family, and Macbeth. I hope to continue acting in college, even though I'm not a theatre student. My initial efforts have been largely unsuccessful, but if I keep auditioning, they have to let me in, right? If my theatre ambitions prove unsuccessful, I may embrace my writing and write for the University's premier newspaper, the Every Three Weekly.
The photo at left is me with a statue of Dr. John Pemberton in Atlanta. (I'm the one on the right.) Dr. Pemberton was a pharmacist, who happened to invent a medical concoction now known as Coca-Cola. He was a true American Hero. Or, depending on your point of view, a naive harbinger of obesity and cardiac problems. In any case, I consider him a stand-up guy.
And for those of you who say my shirt is spelled incorrectly, you're absolutely right! It should be Koka-Koly, but I suppose brand awareness is more important than technical grammar in this context.
