    Community College of Allegheny County honors late legislator Foerster who championed education
    When Bob Mill graduated from high school in 1965, his prospects were grim. A promising football career was derailed by injury, and he had bad grades. He took a job as a janitor. Then his neighbor - Tom Foerster, a longtime Allegheny County commissioner - stepped in. "I can still remember that day. He banged on the door, this huge man, and he just pointed at me," Mill recalled. "He said, 'The community college is opening, and you're going to be in that first class.' Then he turned around and walked away. But he said it, so I went."
