“My father immigrated to the United Stares in the early 1900s. The strong work ethic shared by my parents allowed them to send me and four siblings to college. Both believed that education was the avenue to success. Five of us are teachers and one brother was the owner of a successful Italian restaurant in the Grove City Mercer area.”
