Tampa, Florida — Franck George isn’t sure which major milestone he likes.

Maybe it’s sinking eight hole-in-one. Yes, eight!

Or maybe he’s been a three-time state champion as an iconic golf coach at Chamberlain High School in Tampa, where he worked for 30 years.

Or maybe he was selected as a 10-year coach by a local newspaper in the 1990s.

Or perhaps it’s his latest victory, a beautiful award he won a month before his 89th birthday.

Frank is a substitute teacher of the year in Hillsborough County.

“I often see 60-year-olds who look like 100!” He says, 88, refused to stop doing what he liked. “They don’t do anything. They have to be busy. This kept me young.”

Frank has been a teacher for 60 years, including grand missions in both Illinois and Florida. He has been a submarine for about 20 years, many of which are gigs at Plant High School.

Here in Sunshine State, we’ve seen celebrities like Tampa Mayor Jane Castor passing through Chamberlain High’s classrooms.

He says the secret to communicating with children is simple and honest.

“If they know that you are honest with them, they will be honest and honest with you,” says George. “They can find fake even from a distance.”

Frank, who has a close relationship with the Catholic Church of St. Joseph with his wife Susanna by his side, has no intention of stopping.

“Oh, I have a little more,” George said with a smile.
