Larry Stallings Background

I had the distinct fortune of talking with Larry Stallings last night before SAAPAC’s screening of Wal-Mart the movie.

Stallings has already started meeting with local groups, statewide groups, and begun the process of filing and creating the infrastructure that is needed for every campaign. For a first time candidate he has a sharp mind and his wife Diane is equally focused and intelligent.

After our conversation the Stallings sent me this background on Larry.

Larry is a 58 year old father and grandfather. He was born and raised in Amarillo and graduated from Tascosa High School in 1966. Larry joined the Marine Corps immediately after graduation and served a total of 30 years in various military components, 20 of them as an Army Medical Service Corps officer. Stallings completed a Bachelor of Arts (Summa Cum Laude) degree, and a Master of Public Administration (Summa Cum Laude) degree while on military duty.

He was awarded more than two dozen medals and citations, served on two combat deployments and was awarded a Bronze Star and Legion of Merit.

He is a credentialed community college instructor in Virginia and California, teaching business and management classes. Stallings has worked as a mental health case worker (QMHP) for two years and continues to be an advocate for mental health issues.

Larry is currently employed by the premier trauma center in the region, University Hospital in San Antonio, as the Director of Central Supply.
