Charles Strub '61

I matriculated from a one-room grade school to Plymouth High School and chose Lakeland because it was 3 miles from my home. I initially thought that I would study for the ministry. That changed after exposure to Dr. Rath and Dr. Welti who taught chemistry and biology, respectively. After graduation, I attended Baylor College of Medicine and graduated with an MD degree in 1965. Internship, military service and residency then ensued and I have practiced in Monroe, WA for almost 30 years now. My best Lakeland moments revolve around other students I met while I was there and around my participation in track, cross country and basketball. Since I was a commuter, I probably missed out on many campus activities, but I was rather nerdy at that time. Singing in a barbershop quartet got me hooked on a capella singing, which I continue to this day. We were summer Camp Rokilio scoutmasters and sang weekly for the campers. For the past 8 years, I have volunteered as the camp doctor for Harmony Explosion, a 3 day camp for young people between 12 and 21 who wish to become immersed in a capella singing. Retirement is looming in the next year or two!
