Frank Timmerman

Cairo native Frank Timmerman, who is now the director of performing arts at the Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts at Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, was signally honored this week on Atlanta’s WXIA 11 Alive.
The NBC affiliate regularly features top educators in metro Atlanta and on Monday WXIA Reporter Donna Lowry featured Timmerman.
A faculty member at Pebblebrook since 1993, more of Timmerman’s students have gone on to perform on Broadway than any other known Georgia educator.
Timmerman told the 11 Alive audience he gained “satisfaction” in seeing how far his students can go.
