John Comings (Ed.D. 1979)

Before I came to CIE, I worked in Nepal for six years.

I decided to try the snowbird life—I bought a house in Florida and am next door neighbors to Bob Miltz and Linda Abrams. We dream of having a CIE neighbourhood. We have had visitors but no buyers: Mike and Jan Basile and Ash and Trish Hartwell.
