Kerry Wolf of PA, Returns To New Hampshire
“Work hard, do your best and then let God do the rest, is the
philosophy of life attitude of Selinsgrove, PA musician, Kerry Wolf.
He is living proof that it works!
As Wolf strolls the halls of local nursing homes playing his guitar
and singing songs at churches, for other groups, including the
Veterans of Foreign Wars, singing everything from “Jesus Loves Me,”
to Broadway tunes, (no rock) it’s hard to believe that he was so
gravely injured back in 2002, and that some doubted Wolf’s ability
to resume being a musician.
Back in 2002, Wolf was involved in a horrific car accident along
Route 204. He said to protect his face and head, when he knew he
couldn’t avoid the impact, he put his left arm over his forehead.
The impact threw him against the windshield, and out the passenger
side of the car, landing about 10 feet from the accident scene.
What Wolf does and wants to continue to do is bring his
inspirational music and message to people in all walks of life.
Especially in nursing homes. Wolf claims that most people in
nursing homes see the same faces, (nurses, doctors, technicians),
day in and day out, so he figures they should see some new faces
from time to time.
One day, as Wolf was heading home from a gathering at a nursing
home, Wolf thought of the elderly and others who couldn’t come to
activities, as their infirmities didn’t allow them to participate.
Wolf got a list of those individuals, and their room numbers, and
began visiting them… One room at a time. Wolf is still doing that
today and continues doing so.
Wolf began his musician career, at the age of 15. He focuses on
gospel music, since he became a Christian at 27. He has been in the
music business for about 45 years now. Wolf has 2 CDs he recorded.
On his second CD entitled “Candle of the Lord” Wolf wrote half the
songs. “95% of the time the lyrics come first, then the music just
flows from them,” he said.
The Selinsgrove native taught himself to play the guitar, but had 4
years of formal voice training. He wants the sound and the music to
be just right, and says that he is pretty hard on himself.
Anyone who wants to hear a smooth baritone voice singing gospel/folk
singer (no rock), can visit the New Rye Church, in Epsom, New
Hampshire on October 13th and October 20th. Wolf also does weddings,
anniversaries, special occasions, dinners.
What you will get is a nice man, with a twinkle in his eye, love in
his heart, great singing voice, and his 12 string guitar… You will
not be disappointed!
One more thing, as Keith Mohr at Broken Records Studios said, “Kerry
has been an overcomer most of his life, one of the things he had to
overcome is epilepsy.” Very rarely does someone overcome such a
thing. Wolf had been afflicted with this since he was 18 months old.
In October of 2002, Wolf went through an operation, and it was
successful! As Wolf put it, “It was once a major problem. But now
is a minor one. If at all possible, he wants to make it a “no

Mrs. Tami Preve, Special Ed Coordinator.

they may experience. She also follows Epsom students into high
school to attend meetings and support the students. Tami has a
Bachelor of Education and Special Education Degree. Four case
managers support Tami in the special education department. Tami
says, “Her case managers are a great team and they extend themselves
to kids outside the community.” This refers to children who may not
need a case manager’s support but who do need a little encouragement
Tami has worked at ECS for 16 years, four of them as a case manager.
She coached soccer prior to the arrival of her own children, and
plans to chaperone on the 8th grade Washington, DC trip this year.
She also chaperones the mini-courses offered in January and
February. Tami particularly enjoys watching kids grow from pre-K
through high school, and finds the children’s progress very
gratifying. She says the staff at ECS is phenomenal and truly cares
about the kids. She appreciates the dedication to work and the
children shown by her team. Tami realizes how busy parents are and
wants to remind them how important day-to-day conversations are with
their kids as it naturally lends itself to life long lessons.
Tami and Jeff, her husband of 16 years, live in Chichester and have
two sons, ages nine and thirteen. The family enjoys racing dirt
bikes. Any other spare time Tami may have is spent outside, at the
beach, snowmobiling and pursuing her favorite hobby, photography.
