Not to shabby, that BHS Class of '71:

Bill Shaffer--Butler County judge

Jon Greenert--Navy admiral

yours truly (James Zambroski) TV investigative reporter...

...and those are just the mates I've heard of. I've only known Jon Greenert, what, 40 years...from the old days when we used to play around St. Paul's. But I'm gettin' old..I can still see Jonny's white frame house, but I can't remember the street any more.

Vice Admiral Jonathan Greenert made and delivered pizza for Frostop during his high school days. His ambition at the beginning of high school was to attend a service academy, and throughout high school, he kept this goal in mind so that he could have a higher education.

Admiral Greenert gave the address at the 2008 All-Academies Ball in Pgh. Everyone who connected with him, proclaimed him an ace of a fellow who's not forgotten his roots.

Hi Charles,
An update if you're interested; Jon Greenert has been confirmed at the next Chief of Naval Operations, the 30th sailor to hold that position, which is the highest uniformed rank in the U.S. Navy. He'll take over in late September.
