What was the wildest thing you did at Priory?

Hard to choose from ... perhaps the day I skipped school and went down to Trafalgar Square and got busted by the strictest teacher at Priory.  While playing a slot machine, drinking a beer, and smoking, I hit the 7-7-7 jackpot ... and just when the bells and whistles were going off and the money was pouring out, I heard a stern, loud, angry voice behind me yell, "Carroll, I'll see you back at school!!!"  It was my rugby coach Mr. Brinn, the last person I would have wanted to face at that moment.  Needless to say, it spoiled a great moment for me.


Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Besides myself, I would have to say a tie between Dave Elrod, Simon Blake, and Randy Cargill.


Where do you live and what do you do now?

After serving as a pastor and social worker in Singapore for 20 years, I now find myself in Istanbul, Turkey teaching English, writing annual reports for major Turkish corporations, plus counselling.


Tell us about any significant others

I am happily married to Nursel, a beautiful Turkish lady I met and worked with when I was leading a disaster relief effort for the victims of the devastating 1999 earthquakes here.  I have two children from my first marriage: My daughter Kim, 24, teaches 2nd grade at a school in Waco located in the neighborhood with the highest crime rate in Texas.  My son, Chris, is a senior at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas where he plays soccer and was recently named Academic All-American.


What do you think of the think of site?

In the words of the man who originally set up this website, "Stephen Smith is a genius!  What more can I say?!"  I agree 100%!!  Thanks, Stephen, for getting us all back together again, something I dreamed about for many years but never thought possible.
