When I joined Desk and Derrick over 50 years ago, I had no idea I would end my “career” in the energy field speaking to audiences on how energy affects our lives every day. Desk and Derrick programs opened the door for me to become more knowledgeable about the industry as a whole. I learned from our speakers, programs, field trips and other people in the energy industry. It was the best all-around education I could get. I still go to the meetings, still keep in touch with D&D friends across the country, and still learning about world-wide energy discoveries. D&D gives us a golden opportunity to look, learn, listen and offer hope for future generations.
