"I feel I should confess that I wasn't really the most attentive or industrious student to have graced the hallowed halls of Denfeld; so it feels great to have finally made a Denfeld honor roll."
And it did feel great to stand on stage in a school I love with a most distinguished group of Denfeld Hall of Fame inductees... the first woman chief of police in Minneapolis, a revered local public defender, a highly decorated air force major general in the Air National Guard, two accomplished professors, a talented and beloved teacher, three acclaimed athletes, a prominent area artist, and a skilled and loved secretary. I felt very humbled and indeed honored.
And to paraphrase Fred Friedman in his acceptance remarks... Basically we are those who seem to get the attention; but there are so many others out there who live a life unnoticed and who are as much or more deserving. Well said, Fred!

Congratulations Jim and all the other inductees from a graduate of Duluth Central!!
Oh the rivalry we had with Central back in the day! But I now have good friends from Central and found they're pretty darn nice too :-)
It's been 35 years since I walked the halls of Denfeld! What a beautiful school we have there - especiall the auditorium! Congratulations to you and all the inductees (my brother is married to Wayne Gatlin's daughter)!
Chris Stepan, class of '79
Thanks Chris! It was a great group of inductees. Really enjoy knowing Wayne. Quite a guy.
