Edward Green - Giving Others the Opportunity of a Lifetime
Edward Crocker Green, PDS ’02, admits he was a rebellious kid. He learned to ride horses and bicycles while a youngster living in Sweden, read books under the covers after “lights out” in boarding school, and hung out with the most independent-minded (and most badly behaved) kids in his high school class in Seoul, Korea.
