Frank's Story

Frank's Story

As a child, Frank received his first wheelchair from our collaborative’s namesake, newsman and radio broadcaster Al Sigl. It was wicker and looked a little like a whiskey barrel cut in half. Frank was so young that the chair was too heavy to wheel on his own, so his brothers would help him get where he needed to go.

Today, Frank is amazed by how much has changed for people with special needs.

As a dedicated volunteer, whenever he visits our Golisano Campus at Elmwood, Frank always nods a quiet thank you when passing by the statue of newsman Al Sigl at his microphone. He still believes in Al‘s vision of how we can each be a part of creating a stronger, more inclusive community.

“During his radio newscasts or just heading down the street, Al was always looking for things that people needed, whether it was a wheelchair, a meal, or just a friendly hello,” Frank says. “It’s that commitment to others that I hope to honor as a volunteer. The belief that we really do achieve more when we work together as a community.”
