9 Years of Experience
John and Ruth Ann Morningstar of Westminster, Maryland, incorporated AMSTAR, LLC in April of 2010. John is a former elementary principal of 31 years, having spent a total of 40 years in education. John was also a NCAA Division 1 women’s basketball official for over 30 years. Ruth Ann worked as an office manager for a local insurance and real estate business for 35 years, and is licensed in both personal and real estate insurance. Together, the Morningstar’s believe that “Drug Free Sport has an excellent business model in striving to keep sports clean and fair.” John simply states, “This is why we do what we do.”
John began as a certified crew chief for Drug Free Sport in October 2008. He quickly understood the protocols and procedures of collection work, allowing him to grow and assume the role of Field Trainer in 2012. “Field Trainers are described as the best of the best when it comes to collection work for various clients,” states Dane Jensen, Interim Director of Collector Development for Drug Free Sport. “John has the ability to personally connect with collector-learners, and his experience in education demonstrates his ability to teach and understand what new collectors go through, making him an ideal Field Trainer.” Ruth Ann helps run the day-to-day operations of AMSTAR, LLC and has served as a female crew member since 2009.
Ruth Ann and John (high school sweethearts), have been married more than 47 years. Their family consists of their daughter, son, their respective spouses, and three fabulous grandchildren.
The Morningstars enjoy traveling. They have been to Europe five times, seen 47 of the 50 states, and have traveled to Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. When they aren’t traveling, they enjoy spending time with family and friends at their condo located in Ocean City, Maryland.
John’s favorite quote is by Davy Crockett – “First be sure you’re right, then go ahead.”
