Comments:

Following graduation at Permian, I attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock. At Tech I majored in Marketing in Business and graduated in 1979. I enjoyed Tech a great deal and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. During college I interned with Texas Instruments and went to work with the company full time following graduation in Atlanta, Georgia.

After changing companies, I was promoted to Sales Manager for the Western United States and Canada for a division of Dennison Avery Corporation and moved to Southern California in 1982.

I met Andrea Sobol there soon after, and we married in 1983. We founded Foster Assessment Center & Testing Service, Inc. (FACTS) the next year, and the company has been in continuous operation for the last 30+ years.

We have close to 40 employees that provide vocational assessment, work evaluation, learning disability evaluations, career guidance, and expert witness services thru our seven work evaluation centers in Southern California. Clients we serve include disabled veterans, injured workers, individuals qualifying for state vocational rehabilitation, displaced workers, and at-risk youth.

Our company also provides services in an additional 50+ cities in California via their career centers funded thru TANF, the Workforce Investment Act, and the U.S. Dept of Labor. We specialize in assessment and career planning for laid off or displaced aerospace and defense workers.

In 2010 I was fortunate to be named a "Distinguished Former Odessan" by the Heritage of Odessa Foundation. I was honored to have our football coach, John Wilkins, be one of my invited guests at the foundation's banquet.

My wife and I have been lucky to live for the last 26 years in beautiful Thousand Oaks, California, which is about fifty miles north of Los Angeles. I get to enjoy the Dallas Cowboys when they have their summer camp in the area.

My non-work time is occupied by shuttling my daughters to their activities and playing with our three Dachshunds. My hobbies include ancestry research and trying to keep fit by working out at the local 24 Hour Fitness gym.
My father, Zaro Foster, remains a resident of Odessa. Many of you probably remember my mother, Barbara, taught Senior English at Permian for about 30 years. Unfortunately she passed in early 2015. My younger sister, Dale Ann Foster-Arnold, and her children are living in Odessa.

I remain in close contact with Mike Covert, my best friend, and member of our graduating class in 1975. Mike now lives with his wife, Grace, in Plano, TX and is Preident of the computer software company he founded.

School Story:

I recall the pranks and tricks that we pulled on each other during football practice or in the locker room. Road trips to away football games (especially when we stayed overnight) were always exciting and memorable and an opportunity to bond with teamates.
I will always remember the football games and of course the best memories are the good times when we won.
