Recounting his experience as a student missionary in Peru, a junior at Union  College was quoted in the Central Union Reaper in October 1971 saying, “You must win them over with your love.

It was the first day of his summer internship at Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South. Spencer Way was walking down the pristine halls of the giant hospital with Kent Tucker who was then Vice President for Ancillary Services. To Way’s surprise, Tucker knew every single person they passed. He would ask, how was your trip last weekend? Or, how is your sister doing? During that two-hour tour, Tucker taught Way the most important thing about leadership that he would ever learn.

“People matter first and last,” Way said of what he learned from Tucker.
