CPT Richard Tankard (VA)

Instructor, Coach

Parents and students might be surprised that some of the faculty have not been in the military…including me. I’m here because I truly enjoy the ability to positively influence boys on a daily basis. Fishburne develops leadership for life. If I had to tell a boy one thing before coming to FMS, it would be just to be yourself. 

CREDENTIALS

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Davidson College and a Master of Arts in teaching from the University of Virginia. 

INTERESTS

You’ll usually find me outdoors. I enjoy snow skiing, sailing, water skiing, gardening and volunteering with Boy Scout Troop 30.
