There’s no denying the world was a different place in 1989.
It was more than a generation ago and we no doubt have forgotten just how much has changed in that time. On a hot, early summer night in 1989 I graduated from high school. That event is supposed to help steer the path you will take and it couldn’t have been more true for me.
My class had the honor of hearing Furman Bisher speak that night, something which I had a hand in. My small class was tossing around names for a possible guest speaker a couple of months before our big event and while I don’t remember any of the suggestions from anyone else, I do remember the name I threw out: Furman Bisher.
