Joe Girardi Bobble Head

Met with Mr. Frank Rezac, Msgr. Mark Merdian and Dr. Sharon Weiss and they presented me a bobble head of Yankees Manager and Spalding Institute graduate, Joe Girardi.  Frank Rezac is a retired Brigadier General with the U.S. Air Force and a true patriot.  He is on the Peoria Notre Dame committee for the 150 years of Catholic education in Peoria.  The Peoria Chiefs' game at the end of July was one of the activities that the PND committee sponsored for Catholic education, and they had these bobble heads for the first attendees.  Joe Girardi did a quick video for all the attendees before the game and expressed his gratitude for his Catholic education at Spalding Institute, Class of 1982.  What a great gift!
