EHS retiree eyed conservation, took on teaching science
As a high school graduate, all Dennis Zielinski knew about his future was there would be more school.
If he even merely mentioned another plan, his father wouldn't hear of it, Zielinski said. His dad, Ray, was a factory worker who'd been unable to continue his own education beyond high school.
"He'd give me that stern Polish stare and say, 'you're going to go to college'," Zielinski said.
