Dear Editor: I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Fred Salvo on his retirement from St. Francis Preparatory High School. Mr. Salvo taught algebra, trigonometry and calculus for 45 years. Through it all, his good name has always been synonymous with excellence, integrity and dedication. I hope all the years ahead bring him great joy and well-deserved relaxation.
As a former student, I can attest that he’s the personification of a great teacher, tutor and friend. I’m a better person today for having known him yesterday. Thirty-nine years later, he remains one of the most influential teachers I’ve ever had.
Thank you for caring, daring and sharing.
