Army Precision at Central Headquarters
Goldman, Jay P.
School Administrator, v62 n8 p67 Sep 2005
William "Rob" Roberts wasn't thinking about working as a professional educator, much less running a major school system, when he decided he'd had enough of formal schooling himself at age 19. Rather, he dreamed of big adventures, flying combat aircraft for the military. When he discovered the U.S. Army didn't insist on two years of college, only passage of competency exams, for admission to its flight school, Roberts found his way in. He spent the next 22 years in the Army, including decorated combat duty in Vietnam operating attack helicopters. With the military downsizing around him, he left for a teaching job at a rural high school in Incline Village, Nev. This article describes his career in public administration as a superintendent and also presents his bio stats.
