Favorite quote:

Favorite thing about Project GRAD Akron:

My favorite thing about Project GRAD Akron is being able to interact with Students again after years of being away from Student Teaching and Coaching. Knowing that now I can make an impact on a new Generation of Students.

A little about Frank:

I was born and raised in Akron Ohio. I am a graduate of Akron North High School and The University of Akron. I worked at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for forty years. I love Family, Sports and Music.

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, eating delicious food and relaxing. I listen to and love music from The Temptations to Erykah Badu or Biggie Smalls–it’s all on my playlist!
