    Going through the West Linn schools in my younger life was a really good experience in my life, though I did not realize it at the time.

    77Leese   Kenneth Leese    Beijing, China    kenndl@frontier.com
    Economics & Business Faculty, UIBE-School of International Studies
    Lots of degrees: UG- neuropsychology (UO), actuarial mathematics (OSU); GR- MBA (PSU), PhD program, risk management, economics (Georgia State); Denied employment; diagnosed autism, subsequently taught overseas at Nagoya Management College (Japan), teach now at Beijing University of International (economics, int'l trade & finance, business ethics). Acting ability helps with autism, but is very taxing; such kind of life is very isolating, very lonely; feel suicidal, but prefer suffering to honor the Giver of Life. Been to France, planning a trip to Greece. 
    Favorite Memory:   Dean Pierce and I witnessing Doug Koellermeier getting a hole-in-one on Lake Oswego Muni #17; watching my younger brother, Mark, play a maître d' in the spring play my senior year; "Putting on the Ritz" - partying with LOHS listening to the Grateful Dead; meeting athletic celebrities at Oswego Lake CC; playing golf with Rick Schoneley and other Oswegans with a beer keg on the OLCC golf course; Ron Becker's classes were always top-notch, Marjorie Logsdon and her radiant smile; Dallas Johnson's sense of fair play; Wally Pond, "Good day, you beautiful people"; An A+ in Welty Drama class, but I've always had to be an actor. Watching the beauty and charm in the young women develop was also a favorite memory.
     Guidance counseling is a very important position at a high school and, for me, we had two that weren't worth their salt. Ray Swanstrom recommended I "go work in the mill."  Autism is on the rise in America. A European article I read quoted psychogenic reasons, not things like vaccines and genetics. This means that excessive parental cruelty, born of self-centeredness, is at cause. Some have even detected cruelty to infants! America is known to Europeans as the land of cruelty to children and, I ought to know, as our family was one of the cruelest. Sweet natural affection. Mamas, love your babies. In so far as faith is concerned, I've never found a church that actually does what is in the Bible and, if they do somewhat, they pick and choose. I have been amazed at the faithfulness of the Orthodox Christian Church throughout its inception from the day of Pentecost to the present time. It is apostolic and has remained so since its inception.
