He also worked as a paraprofessional at Garfield High School and Hamilton High school where he was known as “Mr. T.”. After returning to school and graduating from Miami University, he taught at Princeton City Schools and Hamilton City Schools.

Marcum Park has become a central gathering place for the community and has promoted the health and well-being of the community, leading to a destination point for families.
Nonprofit Funds
Donate Fortified Hill at Pyramid Hill Park Fund
This fund was established in 2019 to support the preservation of this registered historic site near Hamilton, Ohio. The site is one of six Hopewell Culture earthworks on the Great Miami River included on a map in Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley published by the Smithsonian Institution in 1848. The site was initially documented in 1836, but it has never been excavated. Today, it is the only one of the six earthworks that survives. The perimeter earthworks enclose some 17 acres on the top of a high hill. Preservation of the Fortified Hill site will contribute to public knowledge about the site’s significance and the importance of cultural resource preservation. The preserve will be used as open space and protected against future development.
