Skip Proctor of Latham is well known around Central Illinois for his half-century of volunteer work. Skip is President of the Decatur Shriners and has been a tireless volunteer for the Ansar Shrine Unit. Recently, Skip was honored for his volunteer work for Decatur and Macon County athletics. For the past few years, Skip has been a part of the Team Soy Capital Decatur Thanksgiving basketball tournament, getting volunteers from his Lions Club to take tickets and assist with the tournament during the tournament's Saturday afternoon and evening sessions. Skip was "shocked" this year when the Team Soy Capi- tal Decatur Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament com- mittee selected him as this year's Volunteer-of-the- Year. Skip said, "It was unbelievable," One tournament committee member said, "Skip can give folks an extensive history on Warrensburg-Latham basketball. He can also share many Turkey Tourney and Millikin bas- ketball memories as a volunteer for the Decatur basketball classic and bus driver for the 'Big Blue"'. Skip began his athletics career as a student manager at Cerro Gordo in 1956. He didn't know at that time how those experiences as Cerro Gordo's sports manager would lead to greater things for the man, who literally eats, sleeps and drinks athletics from all levels.., high school or college. At one time or another, he has served as Warrensburg-Latham's timer and scorekeeper and on the football chain crew. Folks say that he has done a lot to benefit Cardinals and Big Blue athletics and the Team Soy Capital Thanksgiv- ing Classic. Skip was inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association's Hall of Fame in 1986. He was in Warrensburg-Latham High School when he observed faculty and staff being asked to leave any reminisces and recollections they had about him. No one would tell him what was going on. Said Skip, "They were stonewalling me, especially Phil Shelton." THE IBCA Committee didn't have to take a vote. Everyone knew what Skip had been doing with. high school athletics around central Illinois. He had been a part of the Warrensburg-Latham school system since 1959 when he started out as a timer at the Warrensburg junior high school. Five years later, in 1964, he started driving buses for the W -L school district and in 1976 be began serving as timer and scorekeeper for the basketball program. In 1994 he started out as a timer at Mt. Pulaski and drove many a Mt. Pulaski team all over the state for games. About four to five years ago, the Team Soy Capital Decatur Thanksgiving basketball tournament called and asked if the Lions Club for help with the 3aturday after- noon sessions taking tickets. Skip agreed to the call for help. Later, he and his club picked up the Saturday night duties as well. Skip is rightly proud of his community service as well. In addition to the Decatur Lions Club, Proctor also is deeply involved with the Decatur Shrine Club where he is instrumental in a number of projects, including the recently successful Shrine 50 race at the Macon Speed- way which raised money for the Shriners Hospitals. Skip was once a basketball and football official, includ- ing calling a football game with the late Jerry Menz, who died last month. "Jerry and I were calling a football game in Assumption when it started raining and before the game ended the rain had turned to snow and Jerry went over to the coaches and told them there wouldn't be any timeouts and we were ending the game in five minutes." No one argued with Jerry," Skip said. .............................. 1~I~' '|r+';l The U.S. is changing the way it measures the long term unemployment rate.
