Alumnus’ Good Deed Makes National News

officer-pokemon-cards-exlarge-169We’re proud Cleveland Police Officer Jimmy Grotenrath ’08 is spreading our Franciscan charism throughout northeast Ohio!

When Grotenrath heard that a 9-year-old boy’s Pokemon cards got stolen, he dug out his own childhood card collection and gave them to the little boy.

Grotenrath shared a picture of the impromptu card exchange with some Facebook friends, and said his act of kindness is all in a day’s work. ”Anything we can do to put a smile on a citizens face, is a job well done in our book,” he wrote.
