God Bless You, Archbishop Frank Schulte. You have inspired so many of your former students from Central Catholic High School, Reading, PA. We shall miss your inspiration and advice. I retired as a public school district superintendent due to your influence and again as a professor and supervisor of intern teachers for St. Leo University. I was amazed at your deep knowledge of how our government should be working as a democracy. Your class for all us seniors was inspiring and I have such fond memories of you in this class.
