news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   Norm Schillo took his turn on the docket electing to take advantage of this opportunity to speak of his ancestral past. His ethnic background is German. Almost every male on his family tree earned his living as a carpenter. Norm’s father became the superintendent of specialized housing construction.

At one point, Norm mentioned he is 86 years old (should have remained quiet Norm, the club was betting 24). Feeling the memories, joys and pains, Norm was pretty choked up by the end of his presentation.

Norm Schillo, born 10 Sep, 1927 and raised in north Denver (and proud of it). He is proud to now be an octogenarian. He attended public school in north Denver. Of the 5 elementary schools, 2 have been demolished. He went to Skinner Jr. High and North High.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, the same day he graduated from high school, for WWII. The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound. He messed around for a couple years after the Navy. His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade. He went into bricklaying. He started his own company after 7 years. He ran that business for 13 years. Then had a marina in Granby for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years. He eventually got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired. Norm worked with Mike Magee and Will Martinez when he was learning what manual labor means.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou. He met his present wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997. From that marriage he inherited several more family members. He’s now been married to Ann for 13 years.

Norm has 3 daughters, 5 g-kids and 11 gg-kids on his side. Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids & 1 great grandchild. Bill Anderson brought him into the club. Listen to Norm Schillo.mp3

Program: Rick Jacobus introduced Dave Plati, a return program and his talk today is “100 Things you didn’t know about CU”. Dave is the Sports Info. Dir. @ CU

David Plati is in 31st year as the athletic department's director of sports information, and his 37th year overall in CU's Sports Information Office. He was promoted to assistant athletic director for media relations on July 1, 1988, and attained associate athletic director status in August 2005.

Plati, 54, was named the 13th full-time sports information director in CU history on July 24, 1984, after serving for three years as the assistant SID. The youngest SID in the nation at the time of his hiring, he previously worked as a student assistant and statistician after coming to CU as a freshman in 1978. Only six people have served in the role since 1952, with Plati’s tenure in the position the longest in school annals; he was recognized in 2009 with the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Quarter Century of Service award.

His primary responsibilities are with the football, skiing and men’s golf programs, though he oversees the sports information efforts for all sports, and at one time or another has personally handled nine sports during his CU career. He has easily worked over 1,500 CU events: 407 football games including the last 365 dating to the 1983 finale, the longest active streak by any SID in the nation. (copied from: )
