Great Snyder Story

Dana Snyder spoke to SCS retirees at their 40th annul spring banquet in Lincoln's Cotner Center last Thursday evening. Dana used Dr. Gary Chapman's “5 Love Languages” and his personal experiences to enlighten the crowd. Dr. Chapman's 5 love languages include: affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. Dana gave examples of each of the 5 in his relationship with his wife Cindy. But Dana himself is an interesting story. He is a professional engineer having had a successful career with the USDA Soil Conservation Service/NRCS. Since childhood he had a stuttering problem. He tried the “Mel Tillis” system of singing, reading children's books aloud, and sought help from speech pathologist. He also joined the “Toastmasters Club” which he gives considerable credit for his ability to be part of a “motivational speaking” organization that books him to speak throughout the country. What may have been a handicap to some people, he has turned into an exceptional ability.
