|Frank B. Fisher '43|
As a Hiram student in the 40's, Frank Fisher worked for the College's food service. As an economic major, he helped keep the department's books when he wasn't delivering supplies or scrubbing pots and pans. While at Hiram, Frank also played guard for the football team and was active in honor societies and social clubs. After graduating from Hiram, he earned his MBA from the Wharton School of Finance of the University in Pennsylvania in 1947 after three years of active duty in the Pacific with the U.S. Navy.
His banking career began in New York City and after serving as executive vice president of County National Bank in Middletown, New York, he and his family returned to the Cleveland area in 1963. Fisher retired from National City Bank but has worked in semi-retirement in his present position since 1984. His Hiram experience helped him launch a successful career in banking, which led him to become the chairman and chief executive officer of American National Bank in Cleveland, Ohio.
Frank Fisher has given over 40 years of dedicated unselfish service to the American Cancer Society. He has been instrumental in bringing professionalism and sound principals of organization and management to the Ohio Division. His willingness to assist the Society at any level makes him an invaluable asset to the cause of cancer control.
Frank and his wife, Norma (Larson), who is also a graduate of Hiram (class of 1945), remained close to Hiram out of love, not duty. Frank said “I think that primarily it's a deep affection, a love of longstanding for Hiram that started when we were students and never left.” Frank's successful career and dedication to Hiram College has earned him Hiram College's 1987 Alumni Achievement Award.
