This is one in a periodic series of profiles on local college and university presidents.
CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. -- Thomas More College President David Armstrong is passionate about education in general and the Catholic college he leads in particular.
But he has some fun, too, as his answers to this week's "9 things" feature show.
1 - Your hometown and your favorite thing about growing up there.
Cleveland. For people who have never been to Cleveland, they don't understand. It's the best place to live and grow up. Growing up there you learn that no matter how tough it is, you're going to survive. When a sunny day comes, you take advantage of it. You appreciate what you have.
2 - What's the hardest job you ever had?
When I was 18, I had to scrape massive gas tanks by hand and sand blast them and paint them at a cement company. We had to clean ourselves with gasoline.
3- What's your favorite junk food?
I have too many of them. Graeter's ice cream and Grippo's BBQ potato chips are new staples for me. And fried chicken and chicken wings.
4- What food can you not stand?
Peas. I was forced to eat them when I was young.
5 - What's your secret talent?
I showed that at the Children's Law Center's Dancing with the Stars fundraiser. I won two disco dance contests. I'm a husky John Travolta.
6 - Name an item on your bucket list
I'd love to be at the Super Bowl with the Cleveland Browns winning it.
7 - What's your favorite joke, suitable for a family publication?
What's the difference between a dead lawyer and a dead opossum on the road? There are skid marks in front of the opossum (Armstrong has a law degree).
