This week we salute Dr. Herbert Koenig. Dr. Koenig was nominated by Gary Baugher. Gary writes:

Dr. Herbert Koenig is a 87 year old retired Royalton Hartland High School science teacher who obtained his doctorate in education. He taught science for 30 years. During his teaching career he co-authored several published science books. Herb is a US Navy commissioned veteran who served aboard the USS Hornet and was assigned to Pearl Harbor. Herb is an active member of his community. He's been a trustee of the Middleport Free Library since 1978. He is also a member of the AAA board of directors since 1973. He enjoys serving as a member of the United Memorial Choir and hand bell choir. Herb and his wife, Ginny (recently married), enjoy traveling the world together. The couple are very sociable and enjoy entertaining with family and friends. They are always good for at least one corny joke during a game of cards.

Each week, we highlight a senior who has enriched the lives of those in their Western New York community. Whether they are a friend or family, everyone knows a senior who has made a lasting, positive impact on their life.

Nominate that special senior in your life to tell their story. Individual seniors will be selected by Townsquare Media staff.
