PB Post: Goldberg Remembered For His Ability To Connect
From The Palm Beach Post:
"Bob Goldberg was the top administrator at The Benjamin School, and to honor him Sunday, three weeks after his death, his former students, faculty, board members, friends and family gathered by the hundreds in the state-of-the-art theater that was built under his direction. They showed video of him in an orange hard hat touring the new science building that is still in the works. They praised his stewardship of the campus and the academics for the past 11 years.
But mostly, they told stories about what made Goldberg tick, what made him so successful at work and cherished as a friend — his ability to listen, to remember and to connect.
Goldberg, who died at age 67 after an 18-month battle with cancer, mined conversations for nuggets that he would polish and retrieve — your little inside joke with him, the thing that made your connection special.
For Student Council President Josh Greene, it was the nickname Goldberg gave him not long after the two met — when Greene was still in second grade: El Presidente."
