¶ 8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 Terry Randolph is someone who finds interest in history. So much of what has happened in the past has shaped the present, and continues to shape the future. One of the things he fondly remembers most is having history conversations with his father, who always taught him there was more to history than just events, that context weaves itself into the timeline. Other things that Terry enjoys are creative writing (currently working on writing a book series), playing guitar, acting, eating, hanging out with friends and getting to meet new people. Terry is part of the Business Design Group and is in charge of Human Resources.
