Meet RandyI have been an AAPT member for close to 30 years. I was inspired by Leonard Jossem and Lillian McDermott and other early PER researchers – all avid AAPT members – to shift my career focus toward education and teaching, and AAPT was a community of like-minded individuals. I owe an immense debt of gratitude to the meetings, the journals, and the many friends and acquaintances I’ve made through AAPT.
