Marc Copage, Helen Growkee and Michael Link. “When I was doing the show I was only required to have three hours a day of schooling, but it was focused learning and pretty much individual attention with just me and my best friend on the show, Michael Link. It was great to spend the other part of the year in public school though, where I had a chance to be around and make friends with more kids my own age. Don’t get me wrong, my public school teachers were great too! ‘Sarge’ aka Mrs, Kramer the art teacher, Ms. Trafton. Mr. Phipps and Mr. Brown who would shoot hoops with us at recess and lunch break along with Leon the school custodian. It gave us kids great pleasure when they would join us! For some reason it made us feel more like men. And I think it also made the adults feel more like kids again.”
