Growing up in Somerset, Wisconsin and having not moved to the Twin Cities until 1993, Todd Corbo grew acquainted with STA strictly via reputation. Upon his high school graduation in 1985, Corbo enlisted in the US Army Reserves and remained there for 29 years. He credits his time in the Army for his desire to serve others in his community. Early in his years in the service, Corbo helped build a school in Panama, a 1990 project whose ramifications still influence him thirty years later. Already predisposed to community volunteerism, Corbo--who also chaired Eagan’s massive musicfest fundraiser, “SeptemberFest”--knew right when his son, Cooper ‘22 chose to attend the Academy, that he wanted to satisfy that itch for community service and camaraderie that the Army had given him. In the STA Father’s Club, Corbo more than found what he sought. He especially appreciated the radiant optimism that permeates all those active in the Father’s Club. After serving as Vice President under Mike D’Agostino, Corbo accepted the Father’s Club presidency in a time of COVID-induced chaos. He remarked that presently, “There’s no normal.” As the president, his administration’s top priority is returning the community to normalcy. He sees the Father’s Club as a crucial organ in the preservation and stewardship of the Academy’s tradition, and he plans on reinforcing that role for the organization. On a broader scale, Corbo, acutely aware that boys often best learn by sight, sees the fathers involved in the club as sculptors of the cadets’ character. Cadets, implicitly and explicitly, see them examples of fatherhood, service to others, and fellowship. Consequently, his administration seeks to maintain the high standard of character observed by the fathers. St. Thomas Academy welcomes Mr. Corbo to his new role and hopes he continues his admirable proclivity for facilitating community bonding.
