2008 Chapel consecration: (from left) Rev. Scott Brown, Dr. Mark Desjardins, the Rt. Rev. James Folts and Tom C. Frost Jr.
Tom Frost was a banker, philanthropist, civic leader, institution builder, family man, and Servant leader. And yet, I found his greatest gift was that of a teacher. I should know. I’ve spent my entire professional career of thirty years teaching, coaching, advising, and running schools. Moreover, as a student, including my undergraduate and graduate studies, I have been blessed to work with some amazing and thought provoking teachers. Individuals who pushed, cajoled, nurtured, and inspired me to think harder, write better, and ultimately challenged me to be a more contemplative person. However, no individual has taught me more about life, values, leadership and service than Tom Frost.
