“Everyday, he taught me something new; from technical expertise, to career advice, to insight on life, his lessons quickly became who I was. From him I learned to value volunteerism, compassion, and dedication. For three years of my high school career he was my biggest role model. Dr. Wood was a selfless man and possessed a true passion for engineering. His memory will always live on through the valuable lessons he has taught me and his countless cadets and students. Having known him, I am a better person, and because of him, I know that engineering is my passion too.
