Supporting comments: "From almost his first day on campus, Frank has always been a visible presence and a person of influence in a wide range of campus settings. Perhaps his most important leadership role was his service as President of DGGA. Frank has been one of the very best persons in that role. He has clearly been an activist and a provocateur. And students see him everywhere which means he is actively engaged with the community in its many parts. He has taken as his task raising the quotient of school spirit in a number of places. He has been a cheerleader for student activities in the best senses. I would hope that Frank's contributions as President of DCGA should set a new standard for the position and, ideally, that those who follow him will share his activism, enthusiasm, and general goodwill. Frank is, simply put, the most consistently involved and energetic political leader I've met at Denison. He has advanced in leaps and bounds to become one of the most influential DCGA officers in years; he is a young man of promise, of already-polished style and acumen. How he has found the time to do as much as he has is a mystery to me--but it proves the old observation that in a few remarkable and motivated people, energy for group work and leadership seems to be spontaneously generated. This is what Frank has demonstrated all during his four years here. Our community has benefited enormously from his four years of very valuable labor."
