I'm now a retired college professor living in Ft. Myers, FL. I taught at Seton Hall University for 34 years and was Chairman of the Department of Professional Psychology and Family Therapy for 15 of those; an Acting Dean for one. My degrees were from Penn State with a doctorate from NYU. I can say without flinching that Smethport High School and its wonderful teachers prepared me well for future educational endeavors. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Jan who is also a teacher for 41 years, have two sons who are both Penn State graduates, and four granddaughters. For years I owned a hunting camp in Lasher Brook with Jim and George Angell.
