Three generations of Stobbe

With family resemblance obvious, students were afforded the opportunity to see where the passion for living comes from. Live, on campus, English teacher and journalism adviser, Greg Stobbe welcomed his father Herb to Grandparents Day in Ground Zero, Sept. 12.

Stobbe’s daughter, Brianna, was able to spend the day with her grandpa in and out of the classroom and at lunch.

Herb Stobbe later admitted he was not able to follow much beyond the choir class. “I was able to sing along with a couple of the worship songs,” Grandpa Stobbe said, “but when we went to French, it all was over my head.”

Over 300 grandparents attended classes on campus and were served a lunch at noon. Many grandparents were able to be a part of high school for the first time in years. Stobbe, who drove to Fresno from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, changed his vacation plans when he received an invitation in the mail to attend Grandparents Day.

“I was going to come in October when the weather is a little cooler in Fresno,” Stobbe said. “But I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to visit my granddaughter in school.

“The last time I was in high school,” Stobbe said, “was over 55 years ago. It seems students have a lot to do during the day. It also was a little loud when I was in Molly Sargent’s class. We could hear my son’s voice bellowing on and on next door.”

Teacher Stobbe was performing next door as Sherlock Holmes in The Hound of the Baskervilles.

However, when this reporter asked choir members how Mr. Stobbe fared, Hillary Kell, ’05, said. “Mr. Stobbe sang really well and he seemed to really enjoy it–loud enough for those around him to hear.”
