Stern Somebody Presents: Robert Bole

The Oppy staff is proud to continue a new feature for the paper called “Stern Somebody,” telling the stories of remarkable classmates and how they became the exceptional people they are today.

The Oppy staff is proud to continue a new feature for the paper called “Stern Somebody,” telling the stories of remarkable classmates and how they became the exceptional people they are today.

Back in the before times, when classes actually met in person, I strolled into orientation thinking I had a pretty fun object for the grown-up Show and Tell all Sternies have to prepare for. Then Madeline Grimes, the second person to present in my block, stood up in front of the room.

“This is a program from the first time I played Carnegie Hall,” she said.

It was that moment when I realized the ticket stub from my first baseball game didn’t have quite the same pizzazz I thought it had.…
