Michael Choukas '46

Three teachers were very special in my time at VA.
The first was Beano Tripp. He was a very giving and meaningful math teacher, dorm master, and athletic trainer par excellance! The next one was Michael Choukas who taught me math so well that when I went to college and had to take college math, I received a A! Finally, the third teacher who made an impact on me was John Lucy. As a football coach and Spanish teacher, he was very compassionate and a confidant; he allowed VA to changed from a single wing offense to a T formation which was the formation I was brought up in from my high school days. It made our teams multi-dimensional.
