People sometimes ask, What are Carl Perrin’s qualifications for high office? The answer is, all kinds of stuff. Like he has done some really impressive stuff in his lifetime. He has shown leadership from the time he was a senior patrol leader in his Boy Scout troop. He graduated as valedictorian of his six-member graduating class. His leadership skills are still in evidence today where he serves as president of the Computer Club at his retirement village.
He has military and administrative experience from his service during the Korean War as a personnel clerk. The army sent him to clerk-typist school at Fort Jackson, SC, where he was named the “Outstanding Graduate” of his class. You can see that this is a man who is always going to the head of the class.
Perrin did all kinds of important stuff, but one of his most important accomplishments is that he spent a half a century teaching English. If you want to know the answer to a grammar question, Perrin is the man to ask.
