Who Is Larry Vandeventer?
Larry Vandeventer, the old Rambler, grew up on a farm two miles north of Calvertville, Highland Township, Greene County, Indiana. He started to school in a two-room brick, not log, schoolhouse at Calvertville and came to Worthington, Indiana Schools in the seventh grade and graduated in the middle of the last century. That sounds so long ago and it was.
He married Wanda Cooksey, his high school sweetheart, and they have lived happily ever after. Two daughters, two sons-in-law and now two precious granddaughters complete their crew on the Stalwart Ship that they sail through the seas of life.
He served in the U.S. Navy and was a full-time minister. Then he served public education as a teacher, assistant high school principal, high school principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent in Indiana schools and is now semi-retired.
Today he serves as a graduate professor of education for Indiana Wesleyan University, writes a column that appears in four newspapers in Indiana and on this website and has published five books.
BW and I continue to be involved in our church, we like to travel and enjoy the theater. Of course we enjoy visiting our granddaughters and reminiscing about Rambler Town. BW is very active in the Home Extension of Hendricks County, sings in the chorus, and has served in many offices. We also enjoy other varied amusement activities.
At this stage in life we do rather what we want to and don't get started on that until we want to.
