Charles Franklin Reinhart, Modern Music History Writer, Educator, Disc Jockey, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of science education.

With over 50 years of teaching experience and always very much interested in the well-being of children and their education, the late Mr. Reinhart taught physics and chemistry at Columbia Junior-Senior High School in Pennsylvania from 1970 to 2003. In the years prior, he was a science teacher at Solanco High School from 1968 to 1970. Having discovered his teacher’s passion for music, one of Mr. Reinhart’s students who worked at a radio station suggested that he apply to an opening for a disc jockey because of his great speaking voice. When he received the position, Mr. Reinhart dedicated his weekends presenting the news and playing music for WGAL, an NBC affiliated station, from 1970 to 1976 and WQXA-FM from 1976 until 1992. Furthermore, he excelled as an event announcer for over 20 years and wrote: “You Can’t Do That: Beatles Bootlegs and Novelty Records” and “The Book of Beatles Lists,” two books on The Beatles, of whom Mr. Reinhart was a big fan.

Prior to his professional journey, Mr. Reinhart studied at Millersville University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 1968. After pursuing further education at the same university, he obtained a Master of Arts in 1971 and became a certified science teacher in Pennsylvania. Loving his profession, Mr. Reinhart was an active member of the National Education Association, the National Science Teachers Association, and the Pennsylvania Education Association, as well as the founding member of the Columbia Junior-Senior High School Sports Hall of Fame. To attest to the level of dedication Mr. Reinhart possessed, he was requested to return to teaching once he retired due to a staff shortage and despite a lengthy career, he did not refuse and returned to the post with the best interest of the students in mind. In additional recognition of his achievements, he was featured in the second and third editions of Who’s Who in Entertainment and the 25th Edition of Who’s Who in the East.
