Catching up with Salisbury graduate Elyssa Deeb What is your full name? Elyssa Rae Deeb When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2010 Tell us about your life since high school. Oh boy… after graduating from Salisbury, I began attending Towson University. I later transferred to Moravian College, where I graduated from in 2014 with a degree in psychology. Following graduation, I began working for the college as an Admissions Counselor. I think one of my favorite parts about working for Moravian were the times I would bump into some of my former Salisbury teachers and their children at events such as college open houses and Accepted Students Days! After two years with Moravian, I decided it was time for a change and began pursuing my Master’s degree from Millersville University in school psychology. I completed my masters about two years ago, moved to Rehoboth Beach, and began working for Milford School District as an elementary school psychologist. Go Bucs! How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? The pandemic has definitely impacted me both professionally and personally. It has presented quite a learning curve, as I’m sure everyone in education can relate. Since our district closed for the school year in March, everyday has presented a new challenge; however, I’ve enjoyed finding different ways to connect with my students and develop professionally in the field. Personally, the pandemic has forced me to slow down a bit. Although it may sound cliché, I feel like this experience has essentially required that I take more time to smell the roses, if you will, and enjoy the little things. Throughout this entire experience, I’ve really had the chance to reevaluate my priorities, find new hobbies, and re-embrace some old ones. I honestly don’t think I’ve completed so many puzzles before in my life, or taken so many walks. It’s to the point where I’m pretty sure my two dogs, Lola and Obie, are planning a rebellion. However, I think they would agree that my ability to work from home and spend so much time with them has been an unexpected perk that I am grateful for. What are your summer plans? When I’m not working, I’ll definitely be spending plenty of time on the beach, and with family and friends if possible. Hopefully, I can even read a few good books! What was your favorite high school memory? That’s a tough question to answer. There were so many aspects of my high school experience that were memorable, but I think what I’ll always remember most would be the amazing SHS staff, twirling for Rob and Chris Tocci, and all the time I spent in Mr. Atiyeh’s art room. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Grey’s Anatomy. It’s one of my favorite parts of Thursdays. How is your family doing? Everyone is doing well! Thankfully, despite the pandemic, we have all remained healthy. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? This question stumped me for awhile because there are so many people I would love to meet! At this point in my life and career; however, I think I would have loved to meet Dr. Ed Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro was a professor of school psychology at Lehigh University, and those whom I have worked with that were fortunate enough to know him, speak so highly. Our practice as school psychologists is changing so rapidly due to COVID-19 and I feel like he would have some interesting insight into how to best assist students during this time - both academically and social-emotionally. Who is your role model and why? My parents. They have always been my biggest supporters and push me to be better. I don’t know what I would do without them. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Christine Giordano What is your full name? Christine Elizabeth Giordano When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2001 Tell us about your life since high school. Following graduation, I attended Dickinson College and majored in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. I played basketball and our team made the DIII NCAA Tournament my senior year, which was a really special way to cap off my sports career. After graduating and realizing my professional aspirations lay outside of Psychology, I moved to Washington D.C. for a job with the Washington Mystics, which led to a job with the New York Jets and the decision to attend graduate school at NYU where I received my M.S. in Sports Business. Through my program at NYU, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to intern for the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee. The internship led to a full-time job at the company and it’s where I found my passion for Events and Experiential Marketing. We got to bring a mobile tour with, among other things, the Vince Lombardi trophy, NFL Hall of Fame memorabilia and different activities to multiple counties in New Jersey and throughout the five boroughs in New York to build awareness and excitement for the Super Bowl. It was nice to be a part of the team creating something families could visit together. The Committee was set-up to disband after the 2014 Super Bowl, but the experience I gained and the people I met was such a tremendous opportunity, I didn’t care that the job had an end date. I was just grateful for everything I learned. I always wanted to live and work in New York City, so after the Super Bowl ended, I continued to work on various freelance, event-related projects while looking for my next opportunity that would allow me to stay there. One of those projects was the Pope Francis visit to New York City, which was another event where the hours were long, but the end result was so unbelievably worth it. After that, I started my position with The Broadway League which is where I still work today. We are the national trade association for commercial theatre across the county. Among our many initiatives, we co-produce the Tony Awards and a large part of my job is centered around our partnership fulfillment and event activations for that event, which is wonderful and so important to continue the advocacy of the arts. While my career path zig-zagged a bit, I am very grateful for the people I have met and the opportunities I have been afforded. Just goes to show that to figure out where you are going, don’t be too hard on yourself if you need to take a few detours that you didn’t expect. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? Professionally, the pandemic has certainly impacted our industry in a substantial way. Given the nature of a live theatre experience, there is a lot of trepidation concerning when shows can reopen and what the future of the industry will look like. Furloughs have hit us hard and the uncertainty about next steps can overwhelm sometimes. In terms of my career, it is built around sports, entertainment and live events, all of which have a million question marks surrounding them right now. I’ve learned to just let myself have those moments of feeling a little down because we all need to allow for that during these times, but I also remind myself regularly that health is the most important thing, so if you have that, count your blessings. I’m fortunate that I’m able to stay home and that I can work remotely if need be. I am hopeful that everything else will work itself out and I realize how fortunate I am to think that way. Personally, so much of living in the city is about being with friends, walking outside, day-tripping to different places and socializing, that it’s impossible for the day-to-day not to change substantially. All of that said, I’ve certainly learned not to take anything for granted. This experience has really helped prioritize things. In speaking with friends, the hustle and bustle and pace of the city is part of why we love it, but there is something to be said for slowing down and making time for the things and the people that matter to you. It’s not that I was not aware of that before, but this has magnified its importance. What are your summer plans? I stayed at home for about the first ten weeks of self-quarantine until such a point as I was able to get tested. I then came back to Salisbury to stay with my family for the summer. Our hope is to manage to go on our annual trip to the beach, but otherwise, any additional plans are put on hold. Being able to spend this additional time with family is a blessing, and one for which I am very grateful. In addition to helping out around here, I’m finally prioritizing work on my photography. It’s always been a side passion that I never seem able to dedicate enough time to. I’m also hoping to coordinate with friends to do some social distancing get-togethers at some point, but given how spread out everyone is, that could be challenging. What was your favorite high school memory? Wow. This is difficult because I LOVED high school. So much so, I hated the idea of leaving for college (ironic considering how much I then loved college). One of my favorites would have to be Mr. Barna playing our AP Euro class Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ during our last week of senior year. I’m pretty sure we were all crying. Another would be when our soccer coach, tired of hearing that I still had not made a decision about which college I was attending, put my hand full of choices on pieces of paper and drew a name out of a hat one day at practice. He picked Dickinson. So we like to kid around that he is the reason I ended up there. Thanks M.A.! And I hear congratulations are in order for a happy retirement! Many, many others come from time with my teammates. I played three sports in high school and the amount of time spent on fields, courts, buses; in locker rooms and gyms; you experience a lot together. Those are just really special memories no matter what, but we were fortunate enough during my four years to have some pretty successful campaigns. So recalling our playoff and/or championship appearances in the Colonial League for soccer and basketball teams always brings a smile to my face. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? You just want one! Impossible request. My favorite movies are My Cousin Vinny, Remember the Titans, and The Shawshank Redemption. If you haven’t seen them, I highly recommend those movies. They are fabulous. My favorite TV shows are The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Friends. Can you tell I like sitcoms? How is your family doing? Everyone is doing okay. Keeping spirits up and focusing on the fact that we are getting to spend time together that we otherwise would not have. It’s nice to be together and I’m always grateful for my mom’s cooking! We have a large extended family and we usually end up getting together a few times in the summer for barbeques, birthday parties, etc...so it will be weird not to have those over the next two months. But fortunately there are ways to see each other virtually, so that helps. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Oh my gosh. Who don’t I want to meet?! It’s so funny. Some people can get asked this question and immediately have an answer. I have never been able to be so precise, as there are so many people that jump to mind. I prefer the ‘who would you invite to a dinner party’ question because it allows for multiple people. Admittedly, there are a lot of names on my guest list, but at the moment... Betty White. As I mentioned, I love sitcoms and to sit down and speak with a woman who has been on, arguably, two of the most successful sitcoms in television history would be fascinating. I’d love to hear how she thinks the industry has changed over the years and hear some of her stories from sets. Viola Davis. Every time I listen to her speak I am moved. Her acting talents are second to none. She encourages, she motivates and she inspires. I would be ridiculously nervous to meet her, but I’d like to believe I could muster up a few intelligent sentences. And wouldn’t it be amazing to talk with Dr. Seuss! What extraordinary gifts he left us. Who is your role model and why? Again, another question where the answer is always more than one person. I think it is because my role model would be a mixture of qualities that I admire in different people. Without question, my parents are at the top of the list. I look up to them daily for their generosity and kindness to their friends and family, in addition to my mom’s creativity and my dad’s insatiable appetite for continuous learning. They both made sacrifices so that my brother and I would have as many opportunities as possible. There is no way we can repay them for all they have done, and continue to do, for us and all the love they have provided. I always admired the compassion of my grandmother. She was one of those people who, when she asked, ‘how are you’ she really cared and listened to the answer. It was never a throw away question. She was the matriarch of a large family and she always found time for everyone. Then there are people you never met who inspire. Walt Disney for his innovation and unabashed pursuit of an idea that many people thought was not possible. The Obamas for their constant ability to always see the positive opportunities that can come out of challenging circumstances. Pretty much any Olympic athlete. I find their unstoppable ability to train four years for, in some cases, one race, unbelievably inspiring. My list could go on, but ultimately, I think it is great to have multiple people that you admire and who have character traits that you hope to emulate. There are so many fascinating people in our personal circles, and there are so many fascinating people in the world. I just think it’s important to try and meet as many as we can, hear as many different stories as we can and learn and contribute as much as we can. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Jason Yeisley What is your full name? Jason Gerard Yeisley When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2005 Tell us about your life since high school. After graduating, I went to Penn State University and majored in Business Management with a minor in the Legal Environment of Business. I played soccer and was very lucky to step into a program where I had the opportunity to be impactful right away in my freshman year. During both my sophomore and junior years, I sustained several injuries to both knees and feet which required surgeries and significant time away from the game for rehab. I redshirted my senior year but was able to come back for a 5th year and enjoy a final, injury-free, and successful season. I graduated in 2009 and was drafted to Major League Soccer by FC Dallas for the 2010 season. We had a great team that year and it was incredible to play with players of that caliber. I was now playing with and against players I had watched and admired growing up. Preparing for games against players like David Beckham and Thierry Henry was very surreal. That year we made it to the MLS Cup Final but unfortunately lost in overtime. In 2011, I was picked up by the Pittsburgh Riverhounds and in 2012, I signed with the Richmond Kickers. Both teams play in the USL, which is the league under the MLS. While playing for the Kickers, I began coaching youth soccer. Coaching ended up being a natural transition once I retired from playing in 2016 and where I met my future wife. I still live in Richmond, Virginia and run a soccer program in both Richmond and Charlottesville for children ages 2-8. My wife, Carter, and I have two children, Beau (age 2) and Ellie (3 months), as well as a Labradoodle named Zoey and a 95lb Goldendoodle named Huckleberry (who lives up to his name). How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? Working in youth sports, the pandemic has very much impacted our industry. With our local stay-at-home order, we have obviously not been able to have sessions. With no sessions, it means no revenue which can get very tricky for paying bills like rent and payroll. Still, there have been many things I’ve learned from it. We have zero control over it. Yes, everyone who is able to, should stay home to minimize the impact and stop the spread. However, there is nothing we can do to have everything go back to normal tomorrow—and we have to be ok with that. These are the cards we’ve been dealt and it’s our job to find the positivity out of it and make the best of the situation that we can. For me that’s meant more family time than I ever could have dreamed of over the past three months while I’ve worked from home, especially with the addition of our daughter right at the beginning of all this. So many people have lost their jobs and I am very grateful, at least for the time being, to still have a job that I love doing. I am also blessed that my family has stayed healthy when so many have not been as fortunate. What are your summer plans? It really depends on how everything plays out. If things begin returning to normal, we hope to be busy with soccer sessions and camps near the second half of the summer. We’re also hoping to take some weekend family trips to some secluded places we enjoy like the Blue Ridge mountains for some hiking and the Chesapeake Bay for relaxation. What was your favorite high school memory? Many of my favorite high school memories are soccer-related. Winning the Colonial League, districts, and team dinners we would have the nights before big games. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? The Office. I don’t watch much TV but when I do, I like being able to turn my mind off and relax How is your family doing? We are all doing great. Beau is 2 years old and it has been such a fun age. The amount of growth and learning he does weekly is amazing. He’s gone from barely talking a few months ago to having full conversations. Ellie is 3-months old and is doing all the good things babies are supposed to do. She slept through the night from about the day we brought her home so we’ve been well rested for parents with a newborn! My brothers, Sean and Chris (also Salisbury graduates), are doing well too. Sean and his wife, Katie just recently moved to Richmond from the Washington DC area and we now live five minutes apart. We’ve been trying to convince my parents, who are still happily living in Salisbury, to move down this way too! Chris is a doctor in NYC. He typically does radiology, but he’s been working in the covid ICU since the pandemic began. He has a 2-year-old daughter, Lydia. We’re looking forward to everything returning to normal so we can all spend time together soon. Who is your role model and why? There isn’t just one person I consider a role model. I strive to be like my dad and grandfather in many ways. I also had many role models throughout my soccer career of individuals who I tried to learn from and emulate to become a better player. Role models are important but I think it is even more important to have solid moral compasses in your life and I am very fortunate to have several people who I can really lean on to ask difficult questions and get guidance. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Don Kelly What is your full name? Donald James Kelly When did you graduate from Salisbury? 1983 Tell us about your life since high school. I attended Shippensburg University graduating in 1987 with a BSBA. I worked in various IT roles at Dun & Bradstreet, Heyco, Scott Specialty Gases, Just Born Candies and I currently work as a Project Manager in the IT group at Victaulic. I got married in 1989 to my beautiful wife Jill (Heimbach), who is from Bethlehem, but I met at Shippensburg. She has worked for Aetna for over 30 years. In 1991 we moved from Salisbury to Whitehall. We have been blessed with two awesome daughters. Morgan, 28, graduated from West Chester University and is currently a 3rd Grade Teacher at Steckel Elementary School in Whitehall. Our second daughter, Madison, 24, also graduated from West Chester University and currently does Tax Accounting for RSM. I played Tri-County baseball with several SHS alum for a few years after graduating. I moved on to play slow pitch softball, which I still enjoy playing. I like to golf when there is time as well. I helped coach several girl’s’ softball teams over the years. I have been a member of the Whitehall Township Fire Department for over 24 years and am currently the Assistant Chief at the West Catasauqua Station. Tell us about your involvement in the Frank Yelinko Memorial Golf Tournament. Frank passed away in February of 2000 and Terry German approached a few of us about running a golf tournament to raise funds for the Frank Yelinko Scholarship. I am on the committee that has kept the golf tournament running for over 20 years. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 21st Annual event this year because of the pandemic, however we will be back next year. The event will be on Saturday May 8th at Iron Lakes Country Club. This scholarship provides one male, and one female, $1,000 a year for up to four years. In addition to helping fund the scholarship, the golf outing is a great chance to get together with other alumni and catch up on what everyone else is up to. Each year we get a new face or two and always have a great time. If you would like to play, information will be posted on the Salisbury Township School District social media pages next year. What was your favorite high school memory? There were many great memories like beating Southern Lehigh in football my senior year to capture the Old Helmet Trophy, having “Beach Night” for the FS gang who cheered together at basketball games, winning the Colonial League baseball championship my senior year and all the “social” gatherings we had over the years. I made many friends and still get together with several of them for dinners and picnics. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? It has been nice for my family in that we have spent so much time together. We have eaten more meals together in three months than in the past several years. We play games, go for walks and just enjoy hanging out. It also has slowed the pace of life because there was nowhere really to go. No reason to rush here or rush there which has been a nice change. What are your summer plans? Growing up my family always vacationed on Long Beach Island, it became a summer tradition. While we lost both my parents, my siblings and I still bring our families down to LBI for a summer vacation together. Between the five of us we have 12 children who are now bringing down husbands, fiancés, girlfriends and boyfriends. This year we expect 28 in attendance. It is always the highlight of the summer. How is your family doing? Unfortunately, we lost my dad (Fire Chief Kelly) in 2009 and my mom Connie in 2011. As for my siblings, Anne is married with two daughters (Kelly and Katie) and she lives in Owings Mills, MD. My brother John is married and has a daughter (Erin) and a son (Matthew) and lives in the same neighborhood as me in Whitehall. Pat is married and has two boys (Brendan and Benjamin) and lives in Manassas Park, VA. Marie is married to Bob Grejda, SHS alum, and has two daughters (Abby and Maggie) and two sons (Nick and Alex). They reside in Fairport, NY. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Neil Armstrong – It would be awesome to talk to the first man to ever step on the moon. It would be interesting to talk to him about what it was like during liftoff, orbiting around the moon, seeing earth from thousands of miles away, re-entering the earth’s atmosphere and landing in the middle of the ocean. How did he feel when he left in the Lunar Module for the moon, was he worried about not getting back to the main ship? What was it like stepping on the moon and walking around on the surface? I think it would be so interesting to hear all that and more from a true pioneer. Who is your role model and why? My parents are my role models. My mom worked to help put my dad through college after he got out of the Air Force. After he went to work at Western Electric, she focused on raising five kids. She sacrificed a lot to make sure we always had what we needed. We always had clean clothes on our backs and food in our stomachs. She cooked dinner 7 nights a week, even when we went on vacation. She always provided for us. She also battled three types of cancer and was one of the toughest people I ever met. Through it all she never complained. My dad taught me so much growing up and in my adult years. My dad taught me about pride, from making sure my baseball uniform was worn correctly, to the way he ran his fire company. With the help of the crew, he always made sure the trucks were shining, clean and well organized. We won numerous trophies over the years at parades and that was something to be proud of. He also taught me a lot about leadership. He spent 33 years at Western Electric / AT&T and was well respected by those he led. One Christmas morning he went into work to thank the guys who had to be there to keep the plant running. It was all about the team. He was the Fire Chief for 36 years and helped develop a great fire department. He always led by example and was a great teacher. I have taken so much of that into the station I am at now. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Mahlon Reihman What is your full name? Mahlon Reihman When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2017 I know you are attending Harvard University. Tell us about your time there. (Please talk about qualifying for the Olympic Trials and what happens/changes now that the Olympics were postponed till 2021). I will be entering my Senior year this upcoming fall, hopefully in-person. I’ve had a fantastic experience thus far. I’ve been able to meet so many bright and motivated people who inspire and motivate me to push myself. I chose to stay on campus last summer to train with Harvard’s team with hopes of qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Trials. I was extremely blessed to have gotten my cut in the 100 free last July. As with many other things, the Trials and Olympics were delayed to the summer of 2021 due to the pandemic. This was difficult for me because I was training to compete about 2 weeks from the time of this writing. I still plan to continue training and race early next summer. After you graduate from Harvard, what will you do next? Hard to say. I study Economics and History and have been trying to find an industry where I can marry these two interests. I want to live in New York directly out of college so have been thinking about starting at a global financial institution. What are your summer plans? My internship plans have been altered significantly since the pandemic hit. I will still be interning at Barclays as an Investment Banking Summer Analyst. However, our start date was delayed by 4 weeks and our 10-week program is now a 6-week one, so I won’t start until early July. What have you learned through this pandemic? I have certainly reflected on how much of my life I took for granted. With our society turned upside down, everything in my life changed. After being urgently evicted from school with four days notice, I have been home ever since. I haven’t been able to swim in about three months, which is longer than I have ever been out of the water since I started swimming competitively eight years ago. I’ve learned to cherish moments in your life that may seem mundane, routine, or even boring at the time, because you never know when they will be taken from you. What was your favorite high school memory? Hmmmm, this is a tough one. I think my favorite high school memory was states my senior year. I watched my best friend win for the first time and witnessed our team step up to a level I had never seen before. It was an exciting and proud time to be a Falcon. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Inception- by Christopher Nolan with Leonardo DiCaprio… Just watch and you’ll see. How is your family doing? We’ve been great! We have certainly had more family time these past couple months being home, probably more than I ever thought I’d have after going to college. There are silver linings in everything. Who is your role model and why? Easy- My parents. They’ve taught me how to be good in this world and how to treat others with respect and kindness. They also instilled in me a valuable work ethic that has helped me enormously in my life. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Amy Zamora What is your full name? Amy Dawn Zamora When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2014 Tell us about your life since high school. After high school I went to Haverford College, a small liberal arts college outside of Philly! There, I majored in mathematics and minored in biology and worked as a lab assistant in my professor’s lab for 3 years. During this time, I did a lot of internships at various labs in the US to gather more skills as well as better understand if and in what way I wanted to be a scientist. I also ran Division III track and field at Haverford and competed in the 400m and 800m as an individual and on relay teams. After earning my Bachelor’s I was accepted into a fellowship program at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, WA; where I’ve been able to mix my math and biology backgrounds to perform academic research in infectious disease. This is where I am currently! Since moving to Seattle, I’ve also picked up a love for the outdoors, and have been actively hiking, trail running, and mountaineering for the past 2 years. I’ve even run 2 ultra-marathons since finishing DIII track (50Ks). Through this, I’ve gotten involved in outreach programs for folks who want to get outside, but may not have the means to do so. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? As an essential worker, the pandemic has really taught me how to adjust my life when necessary. Although it took a significant toll on many people’s lives and jobs, I learned to think of it as a roadblock. I’ve seen many roadblocks in my life, and none so far have been impassable, so I took this as a chance to figure out a way to support myself in a difficult time as well as reduce my impact on others while still continuing to work. I did this by adjusting my project through its completion, finding ways to avoid taking the bus, and working from home whenever possible. I applied the same mindset to my regular life. No change was permanent or too terrible to consider, so after the first few weeks of quarantine, I set out to find new ways to interact with my friends and continue doing the things that I love. So I guess I’ve mostly learned how to adjust and approach roadblocks like the pandemic in a mindful way. What are your summer plans? I finish my fellowship as of July and am hoping to continue hiking and climbing mountains before I leave for graduate school in the fall. I’ll be attending Harvard University to get my PhD in Systems, Synthetic, and Quantitative Biology. Summer in Seattle is amazing, and I’m really wishful that the pandemic continues to slow down so I can have one last adventure summer before I leave for a while. What was your favorite high school memory? I can’t necessarily pinpoint just one, but my time with the soccer team was definitely memorable. I don’t think I ever realized what a good community of supportive people the Salisbury Soccer family was until I was gone. They defined most of my high school experience and made me really happy while I was there. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? My favorite movie is Back to the Future (Part I), primarily because I love Marty McFly as a character who is extraordinarily dedicated to the people he loves (even when he’s the one causing turmoil). The soundtrack is also incredible. How is your family doing? My family is doing well! My brother is currently at Moravian College studying music and environmental science. My mom is still working and has just moved to a new home. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I would love to meet Killian Jornet, a famous ultra marathon runner and ski mountaineer from Spain who does the craziest and coolest adventures (including skiing down part of Mount Everest twice). He is the epitome of insane adventure running, and also takes the time to be responsible for the influence he has on young people like me who idolize what he does. Although he has a lot of fun and does cool things, he recognizes the risks involved and is truly mindful of the power position he holds. I think he would be fascinating to have a conversation with and I’d love to pick his brain about the things he does, why he does them, and how he got to where he is today. Who is your role model and why? I would really love to meet Pardis Sabeti (who I may get to work with at Harvard!!). She is one of the first responding scientists to both the ebola and coronavirus outbreak and has done amazing work to combat both diseases. Also, as an Iranian woman in science, she’s had to overcome so many obstacles to getting to her position, and I truly admire her for that. In fact, I aspire to do that as well. She’s a brilliant scientist and humanitarian who accomplishes the most incredible things. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Kendall Turk What is your full name? Kendall Nicole Turk When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2007 Tell us about your life since high school. Life has been extremely busy! I had my first son Ezekiel in 2009 who was born with cystic fibrosis. Learning how to manage his health condition was a journey but it helped me grow as a mother. Had my second son Elijah in 2011 and then my last baby in 2018. In 2014 I started coaching volleyball for a club in King of Prussia called Synergy, which I still manage the website, emails, and oversee a lot of decisions. In 2016 I became the head varsity volleyball coach at Saucon Valley High School where I still coach. After being out of school for some time I decided it was time to go back. I took all my necessary courses at Northampton Community College and then transferred to DeSales University. I am so happy to say that I will be graduating with my Bachelor degree in business in May 2021. It has taken me awhile to finish but with three boys I have had to take my time in how many classes I take. I am engaged to my best friend and the love of my life and hope to be married next year. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? The pandemic has taught me that we should never take the small things for granted. However, one amazing thing it did was have my family and me outside all the time, riding bikes around the neighborhood, long walks, and long days outside. What are your summer plans? I am planning to just enjoy the summer with family and friends. I want to swim a lot, hoping to go to the beach, and have lots of cookouts. What was your favorite high school memory? My favorite memory would definitely have been our field day! Our senior class had one of the best!!! We had a rock wall, food vendors, obstacle courses. It was awesome! What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? My favorite TV show is Grey’s Anatomy, I have always enjoyed watching medical shows! How is your family doing? My family is doing great! We are so blessed to have my grandmother who celebrated her 93rd birthday this April and is in amazing health! You’d think she was in her 70s. My mom and brother are doing amazing! My brother is getting married in a few months to his amazing high school sweetheart who we all love!!!! My boys are happy to be done with school and excited to get back to see their friends. My amazing fiancé and mom were both essential workers during this pandemic. So we are all doing great! If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? If I could meet anyone it would have been Obama, reason being to just pick his brain on so many questions I have about politics, business, and the world as we know it. Who is your role model and why? My mom has always been my role model. She is one of the hardest working, most passionate people I know. She has overcome so much in life and the things she has been put through just goes to show how strong she really is. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Rob Ford What is your full name? Robert Anthony Ford, Jr When did you graduate from Salisbury? 1981 Tell us about your life since high school. I graduated from LaSalle University in 1985 with a Computer Science Degree. I roomed with Robert Bauer (also from Salisbury H.S) for all four years. I worked in computer sales for a few years before moving to California in the fall of 1987. I worked in sales for a few packaging companies in both Southern and Northern California. In San Francisco, I worked as the VP of Sales for Unisource Packaging until March of 2000. At that time, I left to become a Partner/President of a 20 employee insurance company, Ames Grenz Insurance, in Sacramento, CA. I am still with Ames Grenz Insurance and just celebrated my 20th year. I have been married for nearly 29 years to my beautiful wife Dana. Dana is a high school tennis coach as well as being a great stay at home mom. We have three daughters. Sydney, 24 graduated University of Delaware last spring and is working in San Francisco for Levi Strauss in their corporate office. Our middle daughter, Meredith, just finished her Junior year at Sonoma State. Our youngest, Molly, just finished her junior year at high school in Sacramento. I played basketball up until this past year because of some lingering knee problems. I also play golf and I like to bike. Sacramento has great year round weather to do many outdoor activities. I also have chaired some local charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento and the Sheriff’s Community Impact Program. I also have coached many years of girls sports including soccer and basketball. I did get a chance to vacation shortly this past March with close friends Dave Deeb and Bud Peiffer and his wife Geri in Florida to watch some college baseball. Bud’s son plays for Widener University. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? Our business is significantly down this year because of COVID. Many of our clients had to lay off or furlough their employees. This directly affects our income. My company has been able to keep all of our employees. One employee left because of some medical issues and we did not replace her, but all others are with us. We are hoping to continue to push forward and have the best year we can with hopefully some business growth in the second half of the year. Many companies in Northern California are suffering because of the closures and we hope they will survive. What are your summer plans? The only thing we are planning on doing is a trip back east with our youngest daughter to see some colleges. She wants to look at schools in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. We are also hoping to see my mom and sister in Allentown and my sister in Delaware. I also hope to catch up with some high school and college friends while I am on the east coast. We will also probably spend some time in Lake Tahoe. What was your favorite high school memory? I really enjoyed playing basketball my junior and senior year. I was only at Salisbury for 2 years, but I really value the friendships I made there. I did not have a track team at Allentown Central Catholic, so I only had a short one season on track at Salisbury. It was a funny story. Our two high jumpers were injured and I was recruited for the last few meets of the season. My good friend, Denise McAloose (and Senior Prom date and Prom Queen) taught me how to high jump. We spent a few afternoons learning the technique. She was a great teacher. The following week, I took 3rd in a regional event and 1st in the only track meet I could participate in. I qualified for districts and took second place. Jim McDonnell and Bob Meely made me run the 400 and the 1600 relay so I could letter (I took 3rd in individual and 1st in the relay because of their speed). That was my only track season, short but fun! What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? My favorite movie is Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood. I am not exactly sure why but there is something about an aging Clint, a “bad guy” in this movie. Supposedly a murder. He puts his life on the line to stand up for a town and especially some of their women. It is about injustice and his courage. I can watch it over and over again. How is your family doing? My family is great. We have a blessed life in Sacramento with family and friends. My sisters and brothers are scattered all over the US. Christine is still in Allentown, near my mom. Bill and Colleen are in Texas (Austin area). Charmaine is in Delaware near the beach. Jeff is in Roanoke, Virginia. Leslie is in the Seattle area. Unfortunately my dad passed away a few years back. It is hard to get everyone together, but there have been a few occasions in the past years. It is great to see them and all of their children! If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I would love to meet Steven King! I have read everything that he writes. I wonder what goes on in his head to come up with the things he writes. I did get to meet my basketball hero, Julius Erving, at the Basketball Hall of Fame with my dad. He was awesome. We spoke for about 15 minutes at an induction ceremony. He could not have been more accommodating and gave me plenty of time. Who is your role model and why? My dad, Bob Ford. He worked his whole career for Black and Decker. He was very successful in business and in life. He had many friends and family and loved life! He lost his first wife when I was very young. She died suddenly and he was left with four young children. He and my grandmother raised us until he remarried my mom, Mary Elaine. He took on the responsibility of raising and taking care of seven children. Both he and my mom never complained they just made a great life for us. One of my regrets is that he and I did not have enough time together. I would have loved to play some more golf with him before he was unable. He was a wonderful man! #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate McKenna Bast What is your full name? McKenna Flannigan Bast When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2011 Tell us about your life since high school. It’s been busy! Completed my B.A at Muhlenberg College in 2015 and went on for my M.S. in School Counseling/LPC at Kutztown University. After finishing my master’s in 2018 I began working in the Student Assistance Program in the Lehigh County school districts. I am now working as a clinician in a school-based outpatient program to obtain hours for my professional counseling licensure. Last year I bought a house and traveled the country for a few weeks, living out of my SUV. Both experiences have led to so much personal growth. What are your summer plans? I had plans to complete the Half Dome Hike in Yosemite National Park. However, I think this will end up being rescheduled to next year. I have a few house projects I’m looking to complete so hopefully I can knock a few of those out this summer! What have you learned through this pandemic? I could write a book on this topic, especially from working in mental health and the school districts. Personally though, I’ve learned to appreciate the small things. It’s easy to focus on all that we couldn't do during this time but I’ve tried to flip it to realize that now I have the opportunity to focus on activities I wouldn't ordinarily have the time for or prioritize. What was your favorite high school memory? Sports. I loved my time playing for Salisbury. We had phenomenal coaches and players. I’ve played for a few teams since but nothing has ever compared to the bond we all had at Salisbury. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? It’s so hard to choose just one! Jurassic Park has always been an old favorite of mine, I love dinosaurs and the score of that movie is beautiful. I also love the Marvel/Avengers movies. I remember going to see Iron Man in 2008 and have watched every movie since. They have a strong message, character development and great humor. How is your family doing? They’re doing well! I swear they don’t age. My Dad has been retired from the district for a while now and helps me all the time in redoing things in our house. My Mom is looking forward to her retirement as well; she loves to travel and will definitely use her free time to see the world. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Steve Irwin. He was always my favorite growing up and sparked my passion for conservation, adventure, and appreciation for animals. He loved every living creature and had such a pure heart. I love watching his kids carry on his legacy and mission. Who is your role model and why? My parents, 100%. They worked incredibly hard all their life to be able to support me in everything I did. They taught me perseverance, resilience, and always fostered creativity, academics, athletics, etc. I wouldn't have been able to accomplish the things I have without their help and guidance. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Kory Reinsmith What is your full name? Kory Alan Reinsmith When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2002 Tell us about your life since high school. I’ll try and keep it to the cliff notes. I moved to Charlotte, NC after graduating from James Madison and have been here ever since. I’ve held numerous jobs including working for the Charlotte Hornets and TPC Golf Network early in my career. The past eight years, however, have been focused within the financial services industry at several large banks. I’m currently working in Data Analytics & Intelligence at Wells Fargo. I travel as much as possible whether through work or leisure. I really enjoy getting lost in different places, learning about cultures, and quenching my passion for 35mm film photography. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? There are several takeaways that I’ve personally felt and think we should all be cognizant of including being patient, grateful, and better to one another and our planet. We are all connected more closely than ever before. On the macro scale, globalization can sometimes negatively impact economies. In times of extreme challenge we as humans working together are capable of adapting and advancing society through innovation and science. Within chaos there is always opportunity. What are your summer plans? I’m continuing to recover from ALIF or spinal fusion aka the ‘Tiger Woods’ surgery earlier this year so my plans include getting back on the golf course and hoping to begin traveling again once things return to a more stable and healthy environment here and abroad. I’ll spend my free time at Lake Norman with friends and family or down in Charleston and Atlanta. What was your favorite high school memory? It’s tough to pick just one - representing the Falcons in whichever sporting event I had at the time were always my fondest moments. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Candidly I’m not a big TV or movie guy but I do enjoy several netflix shows like Narcos and Ozark. I find the political aspects and history of countries as well as criminal organization dynamics very interesting. How is your family doing? Family is good. Siblings are a bit spread out but my parents are in the area so it’s nice to have them close by. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? My grandfather - he was a true inspiration. His positive attitude and witty humor came through his life experiences including his time served in the US Navy and being a great family man. Only now through my own life experiences can I fully understand and often think about being able to share that with him. Who is your role model and why? While extraordinarily brilliant, Stephen Hawking had a lot of unique challenges in his life. His body fought ALS but it could never slow his mind. He also had an innate ability to simplify extremely complex ideas which is something that I’ve found to be very important from a business sense in my professional life. His perseverance, curiosity of the unknown, and hunger for knowledge are traits I admire the most. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Beth Fritzinger What is your full name? Beth Anne Fritzinger When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2011 (Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years!) Tell us about your life since high school. I attended Syracuse University to pursue a degree in public relations, which quickly morphed into graphic design. I worked for the university’s independent student-run newspaper, The Daily Orange—this experience, coupled with my time spent as a student employee in the Office of Marketing and Communications changed the trajectory of my career. After graduation, I became a full-time employee at SU in a digital content strategy role and worked on the team that launched the brand new (at the time) Syracuse.edu website. There was A LOT of learning on the job! A little more than a year ago, I moved back to the Lehigh Valley where I accepted a role as the Content Marketing Manager at Moravian College. Go Hounds! I write content for admissions marketing materials, email campaigns, the website, and more. The best part? I get to bring my dog, Emmett, to work with me every day, so it’s basically a dream come true. I hope to see some Salisbury graduates on campus this fall! How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? Luckily, I’m able to work from home and stay connected with my teammates over Zoom, but it has been quite a transition. I always thought I would enjoy working remotely, but the lack of social connection and the presence of home distractions is ultimately not my desired work style. On the plus side, I’m getting to spend a lot of quality time with my pets—two cats and two dogs—and my mom. I’ve learned that everyone needs to spend a lot more time washing their hands! What are your summer plans? Originally, I had planned to visit Switzerland with my best friend from high school (shout out to Julie Creveling!), but that trip was unfortunately canceled due to the pandemic. Instead, I’m planning to embrace the outdoors. I recently bought a movie projector and screen so we can have outdoor movie nights and I’m hoping to spend a lot of time on my kayak with my pup. What was your favorite high school memory? What makes this question great, but also tough, is that there are so many good memories to choose from! I loved planning prom during my senior year, hosting the Mr. Salisbury Pageant, participating in the plays and musicals, spending time in the library with Ms. H, working on the IP project, traveling to the British Isles with Ms. Brinson...the list goes on and on. Speaking at graduation was especially memorable; I still have a copy of my speech floating around somewhere. That was a great culmination of my time in high school. Ultimately though, I think my fondest memories are of the teachers—I look back on so many lessons, classes, and experiences with a smile on my face because of them. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Brooklyn 99 is my favorite TV show at the moment. I could watch it over and over again and still laugh at every episode! How is your family doing? Great! My brother recently finished school and now lives and works in Philadelphia. Based on how often he comes home, I’d say he really likes it there! I currently live with my mom—she’s a great roommate, dog grandma, and travel partner. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I would love to meet Michelle McNamara, true crime writer and author of I’ll Be Gone In the Dark. Michelle unexpectedly passed away before she could finish her book, but her husband Patton Oswalt and her team finished the book. I’ve read the book maybe three or four times already—it’s about Michelle’s obsessive search for the Golden State Killer, a serial killer active in California in the ’70s and ’80s. What’s crazy is, the case was unsolved until 2018. GSK was caught just a few days after I finished reading the book. It was unreal and all thanks to Michelle’s persistence and advances in DNA technology. I would love to pick her brain about her writing and research process and hear her reaction to the case finally being solved. Who is your role model and why? I’m not sure I have just one, but for the sake of this profile, I’ll say my old neighbor Charlotte Mann is my role model. Charlotte recently passed away; she was 98 years old. She had hoped to live to 100 and if it weren’t for cancer, I know she would have. Charlotte was one of the most active, selfless, and adventurous people I ever knew. She truly exemplified “living life to the fullest.” I can only hope to leave a legacy as great as hers. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Chris Roth What is your full name? Christopher Roth When did you graduate from Salisbury? 1983 Tell us about your life since high school. Upon graduation for Salisbury in 1983, I attended Lehigh University and graduated in 1987 with a B.S. Finance degree. Initially I began working in the finance/banking industry but quickly moved into Information Technology (IT). Over the last 30+ years I have been working in various roles with IT in providing consulting, sales and management. I have done plenty of travel but have lived all but two years in the Lehigh Valley (the last 20 years in Bethlehem). I have been married to my amazing wife (Anne) for almost 30 years (anniversary in Feb 2021) and have two children (Emily & Paul) that completely fulfilled my life. I enjoy working and plan to work another 10+ years before retiring. How has the pandemic impacted you and what have you learned from it? The pandemic’s impact on our family has truly created a challenge in seeing my parents and father-in-law and has limited our interaction to daily phone calls. It has also created some anxiety in having my daughter working as a nurse at the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Overall our family and friends remain healthy and safe during these unusual times and we continue to pray daily for those in need and all of our front-line folks providing the care and services to us. What are your summer plans? Our summer plans were primarily centered around a family wedding in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands in July that has been cancelled due to the pandemic. We will just need to wait another year to celebrate the event. What was your favorite high school memory? There are just too many to list. Most of all the everlasting memories of so many of my high school friends and the staff, faculty and coaches that made Salisbury such a special place for me. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Seinfeld. There are so many scenes of their everyday life in NYC that have related to many funny aspects of all our lives. How is your family doing? My family is healthy and safe at this time. Brothers - Mike in Raleigh, NC, Tim in Center Valley, PA (kids will be going to Southern Lehigh!), Doug in Allentown, parents in the same house in Allentown, daughter (Emily) in Seattle and son (Paul) living at home working for an insurance company in NJ. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? My grandfather - Paul Esser (Dieruff High School teacher and athletic director) who passed away when I was in my teens. I have so many life experiences that I need to talk to him about for his guidance and advice. Who is your role model and why? This is a tie - my parents - Ed & Sally who have and continue to be the most loving & giving people I have ever met. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Kierra Burda What is your full name? Kierra Shyenne Burda When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2016 I know you graduated from Roanoke College. Tell us about your time there. I loved my time at Roanoke. Going to Salisbury, I was used to the small-school feeling where everyone knew each other. Roanoke is a similar, tight-knit community where the professors really care about the students. I loved going to a smaller school where I was able to get involved on campus and really take advantage of my college experience. I was able continue to participate in activities I enjoyed in high school like Cheerleading and Model UN, as well as take part in new experiences like leading service trips to rural Appalachia and spending a semester interning in DC. Overall, I had an extremely positive experience and am grateful for the many opportunities I had there. What will you do next? I will be attending New England Law School in the fall as part of their Sandra Day O'Connor Honors Program. At Roanoke, I was really able to delve into my interest in the law, and I am excited to start the next chapter of my life in Boston. What are your summer plans? I was originally planning on working to save up money before going to law school, but the coronavirus pandemic has made that difficult. I am doing online tutoring for many of Roanoke’s summer classes, but other than that I am just taking advantage of the extra time I get to spend with my family before moving to Boston in the fall. What have you learned through this pandemic? I have learned to cherish the time you have with people when you have it. My senior year of college was just coming to an end when we were forced to leave campus and come back home due to the pandemic. Without a real graduation, I never really had the chance to say a proper goodbye to all my college friends, some of whom I may never see again. I am grateful for all the amazing memories I have with them, and I hope to see them again soon. What was your favorite high school memory? My favorite high school memory is probably a tie between winning debate finals my junior year and competing in the colonial league cheerleading competition my sophomore year. I am grateful to have been a part of the legacy Mr. Barna has built for the Salisbury Debate Team, and winning finals that year was an amazing experience. I also loved the cheerleading competition my sophomore year because even though we didn’t win, it was my first competition and we hit every single one of our stunts. I also got to share the experience with my sister who was a senior at the time. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? I don’t watch movies or TV shows very often, so I would probably have to say my favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast. I’m a big Disney fan, and Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite ever since I was a child. I really enjoyed seeing the live-action remake come out a few years ago as well. How is your family doing? Everyone is doing well! My mom is lucky enough to have a job where she can work from home during the pandemic, and my dad is continuing to enjoy retirement (he loves all the curbside-pickup options that came out of this pandemic!). My brother, Mitchell, graduated from Kutztown University last year and also has a job where he can work from home during the pandemic. My sister, Brittany, graduated from Moravian College two years ago and has been working at Salisbury Middle School in a long-term sub position (known to her students as Mrs. Evans or, as some like to call her, Mrs. Boomer). If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I would love to meet my mom’s mormor (grandmother), who passed away before I got the chance to know her. My mom has said I remind her of her mormor a lot, and she has always spoken so highly of her, so I would love to get the chance to meet her. Who is your role model and why? While there have been many people who I look up to in my life, my mom is my biggest role model. She has taught me what it looks like to not only be a strong and successful woman, but also a kind and genuine person to everyone she meets. I am grateful for both of my parents for raising me to be the person I am today, but my mom has truly inspired me to one day become as successful of a woman as she is. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Jude La Cava What is your full name? Jude La Cava When did you graduate from Salisbury? 1974 I know you recently retired as a sportscaster from Fox 10 in Phoenix. Tell us about your career. I was fortunate enough to cover major sporting events for over 40 years. Including Super Bowls, World Series, NBA Finals and Final Fours. My love of sports started at SHS as we won the Lehigh Northampton League title over Parkland my senior year. My message to seniors is that if you are willing to put the work in, you can achieve most anything. I cherish my days at SHS as some of the best days of my life. What will you do next? I hope to pursue writing projects and podcasts. What have you learned through this pandemic? Utilize your time in a productive way. Assist others in need and make the right decisions when it comes to protecting yourself and your family. What was your favorite high school memory? Winning the LNL title was huge. Playing for Bill Paulik, Frank Yelinko and Charlie Handwerk was simply the best time of my life! How often do you get back to the Lehigh Valley? I have been back a handful of times since graduation. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? My mom was my hero. She battled cancer all through my high school years. Her courage and will to live was truly remarkable. She became an experimental patient at NIH. I wish I had the chance to talk and see her today. I lost her August 13, 1976. Who is your role model and why? See the above - My mom was one of the first special education teachers at Mercy Day School. My parents were true role models. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Sara Fischer What is your full name? Sara Fischer (I kept my maiden name.) When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2007 Tell us about your life since high school. After I graduated from Temple in 2011, I was fortunate enough to be awarded a Fulbright Grant which allowed me to live and work in Valencia, Spain for a year. While there, my primary jobs were to teach English at a trilingual elementary school and conduct comparative research on Special Education legislation between the U.S. and European Union. Living in Spain also made it easy to travel around Europe so I was able to visit many different places and learn a lot. I moved back to the states in July 2012 and have been working for a network of 45 schools in New York City ever since. Between 2012-2017, I taught kindergarten, second grade, and third grade. I also got my M.Ed from Penn State during that time. In 2017 I transitioned into school leadership and held a variety of administrative roles. Now, I work for the same network of schools, but develop curriculum and train school leaders and teachers on how to implement it. I also got married in 2017. My husband, Brian, works for Rockstar as a Senior Technical Animator - he develops and codes games like Grand Theft Auto. We have a Black Lab named Pilot. We frequently travel and have been fortunate enough to visit many countries. The coolest places we most recently visited were Sweden, South Africa, Peru, and Colombia. What are your summer plans? We were supposed to go to Mexico City and London in the last few months and then a trip with my family in July, but those have rightfully been postponed given the state of things right now. The only plans I have right now are to see Lady Gaga on her Chromatica Tour at MetLife in August and potentially visit my sister in Dallas, but we’ll see what happens! What have you learned through this pandemic? Apart from the personal lessons I think everyone has learned, I’m really interested in educational equity and have learned massive amounts about how the scope of education in America could change. Part of my work over the past few months has been thinking creatively and in a solutions-oriented manner to consider how to solve large-scale issues that affect future generations of kids, but I certainly don’t pretend to have the answers! What was your favorite high school memory? I have many great memories, but going to Pennsylvania Governor’s School in the summer between 11th and 12th grade was definitely a highlight. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Probably Parks and Rec or Brooklyn Nine Nine. I like shows that are light and I also think the casts of both are hilarious. How is your younger sister Lauren doing? She’s doing well! She graduated from Pitt in 2015 and was working for the Pittsburgh Pirates in their events department for a bit before she moved to Dallas to work for the events team for the Cowboys. It’s ironic she works there because obviously my family members, especially my dad, are huge Eagles fans, so she initially didn’t want to tell us she was interviewing there! Regardless, she’s doing really well and has been the POC for huge events at the stadium - she’s even credited on Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour. We’re very proud of her. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Coco Chanel. She’s classy. I admire her work ethic, perseverance, and how she built an empire independently in a time when women didn’t really have a seat at the table. She’s a pioneer in that way. I also admire Anna Wintour for the same reasons. Who is your role model and why? It sounds trite, but probably my parents. They worked extremely hard in life to get where they are and give us a really good life. They were also very direct and honest with us and never sugarcoatted anything. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate John Gardus What is your full name? John Domonick Gardus When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2008 Tell us about your life since high school. I spent four years in Baltimore as an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University where I studied mechanical engineering and played football. After graduating, I did a one-year Master’s program in biomedical engineering at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Since then, I’ve been mainly working as a programmer/data analyst in a neuroimaging lab at Stony Brook University on Long Island. We scan research subjects using MRI and PET in an attempt to establish biomarkers for mental illness and various neurological disorders. I’ve bounced around several different towns on Long Island over my 5 years there, but currently share an apartment with my girlfriend in Great Neck, NY. Outside of work I enjoy golfing, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, playing pickup sports, and spending time with family and friends. What are your summer plans? Playing lots of golf, doing some hikes in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. What have you learned through this pandemic? I learned that I can be just as productive working from home as at the office and that I can survive a whole week without ordering takeout. What was your favorite high school memory? It’s tough to choose one thing but I’d say hanging out with teammates after spaghetti dinners on Thursday nights during football season. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? I haven’t watched a show in a while but I’ll go with Breaking Bad because I thought it had a pretty unique storyline and the cinematography was cool. I also like how the writers went out on a relative high note after five seasons rather than trying to drag it out and make more money. How are your brothers Scott and Ryan and your sister Kelly doing? They’re all doing well. Scott lives in Philadelphia and works in a lab at CHOP. Ryan and Kelly just finished semesters virtually; Ryan is in a graduate psychology program at Rider University, and Kelly will be a junior at Ursinus College in the fall. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Probably a mathematician from the 16th or 17th century like Isaac Newton or Galileo; I find it fascinating that they were able to devise still-standing laws describing natural phenomena without the aid of modern technology. It’d be interesting to pick their brains. Who is your role model and why? My parents because they’ve always worked hard and set a good example for my siblings and me. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Colby Kulig What is your full name? Colby Alexander Kulig When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2012 What have you been doing since you graduated from Salisbury? After graduating I attended Northampton Community College for two years and continued to play baseball. I then transferred to DeSales University to study Sports and Exercise Physiology and graduated in 2016. During my two years at DeSales and continued to play baseball. After undergrad worked at Robbins Rehabilitation, a local Physical Therapy clinic, before starting graduate school at DeSales in 2017. I am set to graduate in the fall with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I try to stay involved with baseball as much as possible. I helped coach JV Baseball in 2017 with Steve Wagner and Tyler Tocci and last year I started umpiring for the PIAA. I am engaged to my high school sweetheart, Kait Wisser, and we will be getting married in June 2021. What are your summer plans? I will be starting my last internship in June before graduating in the fall while studying for my board exams. Hopefully we can find some time to go to the beach too. What have you learned through this pandemic? This has been a reminder that everyone has a different perspective and not one person is right or wrong but learning to respect everyone is what is most important. On a less serious note, I learned that all the textbooks that I have accumulated in my seven years of college were never more useful than now because they can be used as weights for home workouts. What was your favorite high school memory? It is easily the 2011 baseball season. We won districts and played for the state championship in State College. I will definitely never forget that season. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? Anything created or produced by Michael Schur (The Office, Brooklyn 99, Parks and Recreation, The Good Place), but especially The Office. I love the dry sense of humor, awkwardness, and ridiculous characters. How is your younger brother Evan doing? Evan is doing great! He graduated in 2018 from Moravian College where he played baseball as well and had a much better career than I ever could have. He is starting to get into coaching. This past season, although abbreviated obviously, he coached baseball at Muhlenberg College. Next season (hopefully) he will go back to Moravian and coach baseball there. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? Jackie Robinson usually comes to mind when I am asked this question. I believe he embodies what a real life hero looks like. Outside of the amazing baseball stories that I am sure he could tell, his life story is something I would love to learn so much more about. Who is your role model and why? I don’t know if I could say there is one specific person. I like to take bits and pieces from different people and try to make that into my own. My sarcastic sense of humor I get from my dad and kindness from each of my parents. I try to stay open minded about things and hear different perspectives. Also some of my grad school professors have had a big impact as far as making sure I am in a position to be a really good PT someday. Overall, just anyone that I can learn anything from. #yoursalisbury

Bloomsburg University senior pitcher Chad Cooperman, a Salisbury High School graduate, has been named to the 2020 Academic All-District® First Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America. It marks the second consecutive season that Cooperman earned the accolade. Cooperman entered the 2020 campaign as a preseason All-American as announced by Collegiate Baseball News. The righthander was off to a 2-0 start to the 2020 season, posting a 3.71 ERA with 22 strikeouts in 17 innings, before the year came to a halt. Cooperman was also 7-for-15 (.467) with four runs batted in at the plate. He earned All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division honors as a pitcher in 2019 and was an All-PSAC East Second Team recipient as a utility in 2018. Cooperman also claimed American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings Second Team All-Region honors in 2019. In the 2019 season, Cooperman finished in the top 10 among PSAC starts in victories (7), ERA (3.07), strikeouts (78), and opponents’ batting average (.204). His strikeout total was the fourth-highest single-season mark in program history. #yoursalisbury

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Shaun Holben What is your full name? Shaun Holben When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2014 What have you been doing since you left Salisbury? After Salisbury, I went to Temple University and graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. At Temple, I tried to be as involved as possible which led me to cofound the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Club with my brother Collin and some of our friends. I also studied abroad/worked in Rome, held a variety of internships, and participated in the Design Discovery Program at Harvard University. I am currently a student at UPenn’s Weitzman School of Design and will be graduating in the spring of 2021 with a Master of Architecture degree and a certificate in Real Estate Design and Development in conjunction with The Wharton School. What are your summer plans? I planned on working in NYC this summer as a project management intern for a real estate developer but after that fell through due to COVID-19, I had to figure something else out. I am now launching a startup with a few other students from UPenn tentatively named FabPool, where we intend on augmenting the furniture industry through Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) modeling. What have you learned through this pandemic? I learned that there is a need to constantly teach yourself new skills. What was your favorite high school memory? There isn’t any one memory in particular, but playing soccer or learning from Mr. Wetherhold are certainly lasting impressions. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? My favorite TV show is “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” because I used to enjoy watching it with my friends. How is your family doing? Fill me in on Collin and Erica. Collin just graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Science in Community Development and a Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. After graduating, he’s continuing to run his own quantitative investment fund. Erica just finished her first year at Moravian College and is majoring in Graphic Design. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I would choose to meet the late philosopher Alan Watts. I really enjoy reading his books and his writings on different topics and find him to be very insightful. Who is your role model and why? I’ve never really had one person as a role model and I don’t think it's wise to completely idolize one person because everyone is flawed in some way. #yoursalisbury

I went to LCCC for two years and played softball and we went to Minnesota for the national championship for the first time in LCCC history, then I transferred to Kutztown University. Congratulations on graduating from Kutztown earlier this month! What will you do next? I will be working at the Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays once they are allowed to open back up. What are your summer plans? I’m supposed to be going to Disney World in July but who knows if that will happen! What have you learned through this pandemic? I’ve learned not to take anything for granted. Just simple things like going out to restaurants or hanging out with friends seemed like something that we could always do whenever we wanted, and now we can’t. What was your favorite high school memory? My favorite memories were anything related to sports. I never thought I’d miss playing sports as much as I do. What is your favorite movie or TV show and why? I love the movie Bohemian Rhapsody because it’s a good movie and because I would always listen to 95.1 in the car with my dad and they played Queen songs. How is your younger sister Carly doing? She is doing well. She’s going to LCCC and pursuing a business administration degree. If you could meet anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose and why? I’d love to meet Rachel Cruze, she’s written multiple books and has a podcast about finance, and I find finances very interesting. Who is your role model and why? I would say my parents. No matter what happens they always have my back and I’ve always looked up to both of them. #yoursalisbury

WSE GIFTED SHOWCASE - Julian M. - 5th grade. Please use the link to access the video: https://5il.co/g9fb Rocket Balloon Car By: Julian Makhoul How It Works: When you blow up the balloon, the air you breathe out stretches the rubber. The rubber pushes back on the air, and the air escapes the only way it can: down the straws and out. When the air meets the bend in a straw, it bounces and changes direction, so it can escape horizontally. As the air bounces, it pouches the car forward. The more air passing out through the straws, the greater the force pushing the car. The car moves forward because the straws expel air. Items for the Car: 1. Scissors 2. Pen 3. Two wooden skewers 4. Ballon 5. Tape 6. Double-sided tape 7. Three bendy straws 8. Paintbrush 9. Four bottle tops 10. Paint (Choose your favorite color) 11. Cardboard about 12 x 8in (30 x 20) 12. Cardboard slightly smaller than the other Why I Did It: I did the Rocket Balloon Car, because it was neat to learn how it works and thinking of strategies that would help it go. Another reason is that I wanted to make something because of quarantine. Thank You

Catching up with Salisbury graduate Mason Donaldson What is your full name? Mason Donaldson When did you graduate from Salisbury? 2016 I know you played football at the University of Connecticut the last three years, what’s the plan going forward? I will be attending Campbell University in the fall. It’s a small Division I school in North Carolina. There I will be pursuing my Master of Science in Public Health degree, all while playing my last year of college football. What made you decide to attend Campbell University and continue playing football? It was more or less a couple factors that fell into line. I’ve been wanting to get myself out of the northeast and into the Carolinas. The coaching staff and the culture in place were the number one reason. The head coach Mike Minter is an extremely decorated football player himself. The coaches built their atmosphere putting an emphasis on qualities I do as well. After you finish at Campbell, what will you do next? I’ll go train for a few months and put myself in the NFL draft. I’ll hopefully get a chance via the draft or as an undrafted free agent. When football is finished I will look to incorporate my political science degree from UCONN and MSPH and work with international health organizations. What are your summer plans? I should hopefully be leaving June 1 to head south in hopes of starting some classes online and getting to work with the football team. What have you learned through this pandemic? That when we get bored with an issue we should put it behind us. Please stay home and stay distant. What was your favorite high school memory? The helmet game vs Southern Lehigh my senior year. (His knee wasn’t down.) What is your favorite movie and why? 1. Interstellar 2. Inception. Such invigorating movies. I know your sister Rylee recently finished her freshman year at Bucknell University, how is she doing? She is doing very well. She thrived athletically her freshman year in soccer. Who is your role model and why? Weirdly enough, I never really had a role model growing up. I had plenty of teachers and relatives I respected and opinions I valued. As far as a role model I really just was always working against myself. #yoursalisbury

Dogs (Max, Luna) Cats (Raider, Blaze) How would your friends describe you? Very fun, outgoing, adventurous What is your favorite subject? History Who is your favorite teacher and why?

What is your favorite Salisbury memory? Before I was in VAST, I loved the pep rallies and football games. What is your favorite movie? Zombieland: Double Tap Who is your role model and why? Definitely my mom, because she was a teen mom as well and has taught me many great things over the years but even more in the past eight months, Through being a teen mom, my mom has been the most supportive person in my life and we are actually closer than ever because of it. I don't know what I would have done or where I would be in life if I didn't have my mom. What’s next after graduation? After graduation, I plan on taking a year off getting myself back on track with work and taking care of my daughter Adalynn Rose. Then, I plan on going to LCCC for forensics. #yoursalisbury

A little Q&A with Salisbury Senior Gavin Strelecki What is your full name? Gavin Nikolas Strelecki What are your hobbies? I love to watch sports and play them, also I am very into cars. I love working on them, building them and detailing them. Also, I spend lots of time with my family and friends. Do you have any pets? I have a turtle named Squirt. How would your friends describe you? Funny, outgoing, and just an all around character to be around. What is your favorite subject? I would definitely have to say history is my favorite subject. I love learning about how we came to be the world we are today. Who is your favorite teacher and why? My favorite teacher is Mr. Laub. I loved being in his business classes as well as just talking to him on a daily basis. He is an all around great person to talk to no matter if it is serious or just about sports. What is your favorite Salisbury memory? My favorite Salisbury memory was being a part of the football team. No matter how you were a part of the team, we all are family and I have made some of my best friends during football. As well as beating Notre Dame this past year, that was just one of amazing memories from football. What is your favorite movie? My favorite movie of all time is The Wolf of Wall Street. Are you involved in any community service projects? My family has all grown up around Fountain Hill so whenever I can help out with either putting flags for the soldiers in the cemeteries or even helping take care of Lechauweki Springs Park. I always love to be a part of that. Who is your role model and why? My role model would have to be my grandfather. No matter how annoying I am or anything I do, he is always there to show me the good sides and the bad sides of things; he teaches me lessons every day. He is my role model because in the future I want to be that person that people come to if they need anything. I am a very helpful person, and I would say I learned that from him. What’s next after graduation? After graduation I plan on starting a career at a mechanic shop and possibly going to tech school to master my skills in auto technology. Further down the road, I would love to open my own performance and tuning shop for cars and motorcycles to assist and help other people build their dream car, truck or motorcycle. #yoursalisbury

WSE students Payton, Logan and Makenna are making the best out of their time at home. Payton made breakfast for mom and dad, Logan got to enjoy the outdoors and then there is Makenna rolling out dough for egg decorations. Plus there is the skittles experiment!
