by Frederick J. Day
2DonnBooks latest offering is the story of Richard “Dick” Martin – educator, coach, and leader.
How does one grow? What is it that causes a youth of little discipline and restraint to grow into a reflective and thoughtful coach and educator? At what point does one embrace a philosophy of life and living that is founded in love?
“Dick Martin’s story is a chronicle of obstacles overcome, an educational call recognized, and generations of young people generously served. The account is inspiring in tone as it captures the humanity of a person who genuinely loved the students entrusted to his care but was also willing to make the hard decisions that are the true test of effective leadership. Dick and I were classmates at Notre Dame. I am honored to be able to recommend this fine book.”
– Rev. Edward A. “Monk” Malloy, C.S.C., President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame
