Walter "Red" Barber

Professional Sports Broadcaster

"DeMolay meant a great deal to me in my late adolescent years in Sanford, Florida. My high school principal, G.E. McKay, guided us in our DeMolay work. Those influences taught me about character, about holding your faith, about truth, and keeping your word. I shall always be grateful to Professor McKay and to DeMolay. I was blessed to have such guidance at such a period in my life. I pray such good influences may come to more and more teenagers today in these troublesome times."
