Former superintendent presents on influential Lancastrians

On December 21, Dr. Robert Frick, a local historian and the former superintendent of the Lampeter-Strasburg School District, presented to Mr. Adam Titter's local history classes on three notable Lancastrians from the Revolutionary War timeframe: Joseph Simon, Edward Hand, and George Ross.

It was Dr. Frick's first presentation to Mr. Titter's classes, and came together via email rather quickly over the past two weeks, says Titter.

"Two years ago he had emailed me that he was doing presentations," Titter explains. "It was neat to have him in."

Students agreed.

"I enjoyed it," says Derek Seiders, a senior in one of Mr. Titter's classes.

Dr. Frick, who retired as Lampeter-Strasburg's superintendent after a 44-year career at L-S in 2011, gives presentations on some 58 famous Lancastrians, predominantly at retirement homes and libraries. He also serves as the reader for the L-S Quiz Bowl team's matches, and sponsors several annual scholarships for L-S seniors.

Mr. Titter would like to have Dr. Frick come back to his classes in the future, citing Frick's vast knowledge of local history and ability to relate to students.

"He's a funny guy."
