Mr. Bernard Frye, who is in his 37th year of teaching mathematics at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School, will appear in the NHR Outstanding American Teachers 2005-2006 Commemorative Edition. In addition to teaching full-time at Montgomery Catholic, Mr. Frye is an Adjunct Instructor of Mathematics at Alabama State University, a position he has held for the last 19 years.
Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School President Faustin Weber remarks, “I regard Mr. Frye as one of the real heroes of our school, someone who through the entirety of his adult life, has embraced the legacy of teaching excellence passed down to us from our founding order, the Sisters of Loretto. Students describe him as “tough, but fair”, and alumni often remark they find mathematics in college “quite easily done” (a Frye-ism) because of the foundation he gave them. His impact on two generations of students here is immeasurable, so we are very happy and proud that he is being honored as an outstanding teacher by the nation’s Honor Roll.”
