FRANKFORD-ALUMNI.COM: 

Tell us about your Frankford experience?

ROB: 

I played every single sport.  And I was in the arts programs, (AMP)  Arts Music and  Performance.  I was also in choir, and played JV baseball and soccer.

       

I was the class clown, the one who made people laugh.

FRANKFORD-ALUMNI.COM: 

Who inspired you at Frankford?

ROB:

Mr. Wells and Ms. Bellar.  Mr. Wells was my history teacher.  He was a character, a very funny guy.  We got along great.

HOW DID FRANKFORD PREPARE YOU FOR THE WORLD?

ROB:

Frankford helped me control my temper.  When I joined the choir, it calmed me down.  I was ambitious, the gotta go, gotta do this type.  I became calmer. 

 

I was also one of the disciplinarian assistants.  A Peer Mediator...we were the ones to get the students and take them to the Disciplinarian.  If a teacher had a problem with a student , it was the Peer Mediator's responsibility to get the student to the office for the conflict resolution.

FRANKFORD-ALUMNI.COM:

What was life like the first few years after high school?

ROB:

I started as a dishwasher at Pizza Hut and left as a store manager.  I married my best friend, Julia in 2005 (fellow choir member) and started a family.  I'm currently a server at the Hook & Reel, a Cajun seafood restaurant.

What advice would you give today's students.

ROB:

Don't sweat the small stuff...that was always my motto.  And Dont' be so angry, enjoy your friends.
