Todd Francis has been at Allen since 1995, replacing Robert Barclay as the Instructor of Chemistry. He has been the sponsor for AEC since 2001, replacing Larry Manes, who started the program at Allen. He also serves as Division Chair for the Physical/Life Sciences. And in what time is left of the day, he has been a Volunteer Assistant Coach for the Red Devil Volleyball program since 2000.
Todd earned his BA in Chemistry from Central College (IA), and MS in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Yes, that means he is a die-hard Husker fan in the land of Jayhawks, Wildcats, Gorillas, and Hornets! In his spare time, Todd has acted in community theatre, and when the weather allows, can be found at the golf course, although usually frustrated over missed putt!
