Rod had witnessed too many cracks in the educational system and jumped at the chance when invited to help start Loveland Classical Schools. This stay-at-home dad has seen, heard and experienced enough of the dumbing down of our society and was excited for the opportunity to volunteer and help create an educational foundation for which students and parents can be proud.
