"For nearly a century DeMolay has played a major role in shaping the character of young men.  The values taught by DeMolay are timeless - as relevant today as they were 60 years ago when I became a member.  I was excited to become a member and I treasure the values I learned. These values remain as guiding principles by which I have governed my life. I am honored to be inducted in the DeMolay Hall of Fame."
