Name: Regina Delman Title: The Barber Years at FUMA: 20 this January!
Duties: To keep all the boys, faculty and staff looking spiffy
Describe yourself in one sentence. I’m a hair cutting, dance teaching, gymnastic coaching, mom and glass-half-full kind of person.
What is your favorite FUMA memory? A favorite memory goes back to when the Barbershop was in the Sabre Shop along with the Cadet Store and there were pay phones in the waiting area. It was quite the happening place!
In the time you have been at the Academy, what do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment? 20 years!!!
What job duties/responsibilities do you have at FUMA that others may not be aware of? On an average, I do 60 haircuts a day. My record for one day is 124, not a number I wish to beat.
If you were given two free tickets to any sporting or entertainment event in the U.S., what would be the name of the event or performer printed on those tickets? The Super Bowl with the New York Giants in it
What is your favorite pastime? Family vacations. But since those don’t occur as often as I’d like, a good book and a bag of chips will do.
What advice can you offer to current cadets to help them understand the importance of a good education, as well as how FUMA can benefit their future success? I would like to quote Admiral Burhoe here: “Work Hard, Be Nice.” This has become one of my favorite sayings and words of advice I tend to give out a lot.
