Larry Green Class of 1967
To say the least, life has been very
interesting since SW 1967. To keep this simple I'll use bullet points
versus paragraphs of text.
Bachelors/Masters degrees from Asbury College (a small college
outside of Lexington, KY)
Served as an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church for 5
1/2 years (3 years of that in Brandon, FL - just outside of Tampa) 1st marriage
lasted 13 years - one child - Laura Green, she stayed with me after the divorce,
she and I are still extremely close - I either fly her home once a month, or go
to Chicago once a month 2nd marriage going strong +14 years now (I married my
best friend the second time around) - one child - Taylor Green
Laura is now 24, lives in Chicago, and works for an e-business
consulting firm Taylor is now 12, plays football, good looking (got that from
his Italian mother), and wants to be a doctor (my knees need him now)
I left the ministry in 1977 and joined the Procter & Gamble
Company (Tide, Crest, Pampers, Charmin, etc.) - I started in Sales and moved to
Jacksonville, FL, Charlotte, NC, and then Cincinnati as I moved up in sales In
1985 switched from Sales to Human Resources - (Training & Development) -
series of positions in HR (Mgr.US Sales Training, Mgr.Global Training for
F&A, Mgr.Sales Restructure/Reorganization Training) Current role is
Assoc.Director of P&G's Global Learning Center in Cincinnati (our world
headquarters location) with global responsibilities for T&D. I travel
a fair amount to P&G's +80 offices around the globe, and in the U.S.
(mostly representing P&G at various and sundry functions) My wife Jacqueline
is originally from Philadelphia, but lived in South Florida for most of her life
(Hallandale). She works for P&G as well and is responsible for New
Business Development in the Sales organization. We travel to South Florida
(Boca Raton) several times a year as she still has family living there.
We are currently working with a broker on some property in North
Boca/South Delray on the intercoastal for the purpose of retiring.
Unfortunately with stock price drops in 2000, retirement is probably still 5-6
years off, but we want to lock in the land now if we can identify the right
To the request for poems - sorry not my field of expertise - I enjoy
reading some that have been posted, but will not embarrass myself by even
To the request for a philosophy - one that has worked is "Lead,
Follow, or Get out of the Way" - a bit blunt and direct, but I find it
works personally, and it helps in managing a large organization if all
associates do the same.
Concerning Reunions - I haven't made one yet (after John Fortner's
death in Vietnam - best friend in high school - I avoided it at first) - later
just never connected with the details or mailings, etc. - but would be
interested in 2002.
