Bob Sondheim was a well-known figure in the Sharon community for all his involvement in town.
Fittingly, he was the only athletic director in the Hockomock League with a sailing team. If he had his way, there would have been a crew team, a surfing team, ice fishing team and probably a water polo team at Sharon High. The more time in the pool, the pond or the ocean, the better for him. "My fellow athletic directors call me 'Commodore Sondheim,' "' he said with a laugh a few years back. Bob Sondheim, the longtime swimming coach and athletic director, died Monday at age 63, way too young for a man who had given so much to so many. When Bob took over as the athletic director some 12 years ago, replacing the late Dick Corbirn, he had been working in government for people with disabilities. He was teased about being the new kid and …

The program at Sharon High School, dubbed "Teen Speak-Out," looks to address ethnicity and religion, but also looks at students to identify social divisions they see in the school, from cliques perceived judgements about socioeconomics, attitudes on drug use, and other issues, according to the report. The program reaches all of the school's 1,100-some students at one point in their high school careers unless they decide not to participate, according to Boston.com.
