Don Allison, Senior Editor of The Bryan Times, shared some of his experiences with the Stryker Rotary at their regular meeting on Tuesday evening. Don told the Rotarians that he knew from an early age that he wanted to write; in fact one of the Rotarians in attendance gave him inspiration while in high school. William Brenner wrote a comedy column for the Stryker High School Paper that Don always enjoyed. Don also enjoys history but didn’t want to become a teacher, and ruled out history as a vocation. His first writing job was for the Advance Reporter. He had planned to take a job with an Atlanta paper when he saw and advertized opening at The Bryan Times and he has been with them for his remaining carrier. Don won an award for the best special section in 2012 for his work on The Great Locomotive Chase, and feels this is some of his best work. He enjoys Civil War History including participation in enactments. Don on the left spoke as a guest of Stryker Rotarian Ken Culler.
