PRNewswire 4Oct99 P2
DALLAS, TEXAS -- An LDS man, Salt Lake patent attorney Vaughn North,
was chosen by 7-Eleven as the second busiest person in America. North
has a 60-plus-hour workweek and also manages two research companies.
He also composes music and sings with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
North received the honor as part of 7-Eleven's contest to find the
person in America with the busiest schedule. The company's contest
ended September 1st after collecting entries through its chain of
19,000 convenience stores. Entrants gave 7-Eleven schedule
information through a contest form available at the stores.
The winner of the contest was Keith Smith of Ashland, Virginia, who
works three jobs and does extensive volunteer work. He also has a
wife (who has two jobs and is working on a master's degree) and two
teenage children. Now 7-Eleven is worried that they won't be able to
get Smith to break-away from his schedule to enjoy the grand prize -
five days and four nights on Bora Bora in French Polynesia.
