Message from

President Br. Norman w. hipps, o.s.b.

Greetings from a crisp autumn at Saint Vincent,

S

chool year beginnings are always filled with excitement, freshness and the energy of new and returning students, faculty and staff: this year over 500 new students and nine new faculty members. Some of the stories in this publication have a personal significance to me. The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is spectacular and the dedication this past June was a wonderful event that featured a very special family. The facility was influential in attracting 40% of our freshman class as Boyer School majors. The article on China highlights a longterm relationship that our Monastery has had in education dating back to the 1920s. I was fortunate to build on the foundations led by those early monks, our current Archabbot and Dean Gary Quinlivan. Our Archabbot has served on the Benedictine Commission on China since 1996. Dr. Quinlivan had a Fulbright Scholarship to teach at Shandong 22 years ago and has continued almost annually to do work in China. I had a wonderful visit to China in May and signed agreements with several universities there. Building these relationships and creating opportunities for faculty and student exchange is an integral part of our Strategic Plan. The article on Derry Area High School highlights a connection that I have enjoyed by working with their teachers in the Math Science Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania— one served as a Teacher Fellow who collaborated with me as we designed a new course in middle school mathematics. One of the students, valedictorian at Derry, now a senior biochemistry major, has been a work study student in our office for all four of her years at Saint Vincent. Finally, the honor roll of donors lists many good friends and generous contributors to our College. I am so grateful for your support. If you have not visited campus lately, please come see the fruits of your gifts. Thank you all very much.

family ties: collards favor SVC

im Collard, C’64, has always maintained that Saint Vincent’s commitment to the liberal arts, the total person, is what made the difference to him. And knowing that the college remains committed to the same traditions that he experienced as a student is why he continues to promote Saint Vincent to this day. “My husband has such wonderful memories of Saint Vincent,” said Patricia Collard of Buffalo. She has visited campus on a regular basis for more than a decade as all four of the couple’s children—Matthew, Mark, Norah, and Luke John—attended Saint Vincent College. When the time came for Collard children to make a decision about higher education, their father’s alma mater was on each sibling’s list of potential colleges, but each chose the institution he or she felt best suited his or her needs. The match for those needs just happened to be located in Latrobe.

Back, from left, Jackie Collard (Mark’s wife), Mark Collard holding Grace Collard (Mark & Jackie’s daughter), Joanne Collard (Luke’s wife), Luke Collard, Kerry Collard (Matt’s wife), Matthew Collard, Daniel Ferry (Norah’s husband), Norah Collard Ferry holding daughter Gwen. Since the photo was taken, Luke Collard, Jr., was born in March. “From a school perspective, it was perfect—the size and closeness of the Saint Vincent community—I fell in love with that when I went down to visit,” said Mark Collard, C’98, now a managing principal of Odyssey Advisors, LLC, in Buffalo. “My older brother had been there for two years, and it almost felt like an extension of my high school, which was a Catholic, all boys school.” Contributing to that closeness, he said, “was the tradition, the religious aspect, the closeness of the community and the small class sizes that enabled us to get to know the teachers and faculty.” “Dad is always promoting Saint Vincent. He has a pennant in his office. But we selected it for its academic program. We were all good students, so we had options, and dad challenged us to find a strong, Catholic, liberal arts college that would sustain us in life. It’s hard for an eighteen-yearold to think of things that way, but he always challenged us to continue to learn.” “Dad never put any pressure on us to go there, and I applied to other schools. But I knew I was going to go

there. Saint Vincent really had that type of effect on me and it continues,” Mark said. That education helped him in his graduate studies as well—he has a master of business administration degree from the University of Buffalo. Matthew Collard, C’96, said his uncle Peter Collard, C’57, an attorney, was the first in the family to attend Saint Vincent, followed by his father, an orthopedic surgeon in Buffalo. But he wasn’t just following in his father’s footsteps. “I was impressed by the cultural connection when I first walked onto campus. I had done exchange programs in grammar school and high school, so the rich German history of the college was inspiring.” Matthew moved to Germany after he graduated with a degree in finance and minors in German and international business. He did advanced studies in that country before returning to the Buffalo area where he serves as a partner with Harold C. Brown and Company. “What stands out the most in my mind about my time at Saint Vincent is the amazing humanities education I received,” said Norah (Collard) Ferry, C’02. “My professors in the English department fostered my love for literature and composition. At the same time, their colleagues in the history, social sciences, religion, and philosophy departments stoked my broader intellectual curiosity. “I looked forward to so many of my classes and the discussions my professors encouraged,” she said. “On a more practical note, I felt well-prepared for graduate school (she earned a master’s degree in English) and later, the working world.” Norah, who is presently an editor and writer for a global consulting firm, McKinsey & Company, lives in Boston with her husband and daughter. “Although a number of my professors at Saint Vincent knew my brothers who had preceded me there,” she said, “I still felt that I had an opportunity to make my own way and pursue my own interests, which is something my parents always encouraged.” “As the youngest, I had to go there to bring the Collard name back to Saint Vincent,” Luke Collard, C’06, said. Like his brother Mark before him, he developed a friendship with Father Paul Taylor, O.S.B. “We used to work out a lot together in the weight room and we became very good friends. He presided at our wedding. Every time we go to Pittsburgh to visit friends, we stop by the school. He visits when he is in Buffalo. The Benedictine tie helps us stay in contact.” Luke, who played baseball for the Bearcats, works in sales, and continues to “pitch” for Saint Vincent. The Collard brothers, who all live in western New York, and their parents will host a regional alumni gathering, for the president, Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., at the Buffalo Club on October 17 to support Saint Vincent. Luke coaches football, brother Mark has coached in various basketball and hockey programs, and Matthew serves on the board of his high school, Saint Joseph, and is introducing Brother Norman to his school and other schools in the area. All, as their father did before them, think fondly of their time here, and want others to share the experience. “Our family has adopted Boniface Wimmer’s motto, ‘forward, always forward’,” Luke said. “The campus has evolved. It’s changed quite a bit,” Mark said. “I wish I could go back for another four years.”

The Collards have invested their lives in Saint Vincent. You, too, can help in these same ways through charitable giving, the encouragment of assistance, and through the identification of quality, prospective students.

close-knit family’s love of education and devotion to Saint Vincent College was highlighted with the formal dedication on June 25 of the first phase of the $39 million, 110,000-square-foot Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion, a state-of-the-art educational facility that houses the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing. Over 500 Saint Vincent College alumni, friends, and representatives of foundations, corporations, and other organizations along with Sis and Herman Dupré, their daughters and their husbands, children, and friends witnessed the ceremonial dedication that included heartfelt tributes by family members and members of the Saint Vincent community.

With voices often filled with emotion, two daughters and four sons-in-law of the couple offered glowing words of praise for the remarkable couple whose family gift has made possible the new Dupré Science Pavilion, which is part of the largest construction project in Saint Vincent history.

At the dedication, Denise Dupré pointed out that her parents had offered valuable lessons in life from the simplest things to the more profound, such as urging the girls to: “leave the world a better place than you found it” and “be the best you can in everything you do.” Among the lessons offered by her mom

“We were lucky as a family that Saint Vincent was not only a life-changing experience for my father as a student here, but also was a home with the same Bavarian heritage as his own family.“

“I had the good fortune of growing up in a family where a good education was supported, celebrated and of paramount importance,” said Denise Dupré, adjunct professor, Harvard University Extension, and eldest of the nine daughters of Sis and Herman Dupré. “Education is one of my parents’ most important values. With determination, they not only assured that we had a great education, but they were great teachers themselves.” Herman Dupré, a 1953 graduate of Saint Vincent, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree 4

has spread his snowmaking systems worldwide. Sis Dupré, the former Mary McSwigan of Pittsburgh, enjoyed a rewarding career as a teacher of English and physical education in the Pittsburgh City School System, and according to her daughters, has been an outstanding role model as well. The Duprés previously demonstrated their interest in education with their establishment of the Great Teacher Recognition Program at Saint Vincent. The program recognizes influential secondary school teachers of Saint Vincent freshmen.

were “to always find the value of what you have to work with, rather than worrying about what you don’t have; to never give up; to look for the best in others; and to be what helps a friend to succeed.” “The work done by great teachers at a great institution such as Saint Vincent is a special gift,” Denise said. “We were lucky as a family that Saint Vincent was not only a life-changing experience for my father as a student here, but also was a home with the same Bavarian heritage as his own family.

Saint Vincent has been an important influence and place of connectivity for my parents all of their adult lives. It is hard not to feel inspired by the Saint Vincent Basilica, where many of my sisters were married, and where wonderful people such as Archabbot

and mother of “five potential scientists” described how her father had sparked her interest in water chemistry, when at 12, she was asked to analyze freezing rates of different water sources, important for snowmaking, as she worked in her sister’s ice cream shop. With test tubes, and a newly purchased lab book, she began recording data. It was the beginning of

And addressing her father, she said, “Thank you, dad, for showing me the pure joy of science; in teaching me how to lose myself completely in the creativity of solving complicated problems; and for telling me that if I find something that doesn’t work, to not only fix it, but make it better.” Of her mom, she said, “Our mother

steel sculpture 15 feet tall on the southern side of the plaza in front of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is both an artistic as well as a scientifically practical architectural feature of the new facility. Called an analemma, it is an ancient device for charting the path of the earth around the sun. It demonstrates that the sun travels in a predictable pattern over the course of a year—the analemma—and traces the projection of an object’s shadow to measure time, not only the hours, as in normal sundials, but also weeks and months. Within the analemma is a steel plate with a hole in it that faces due south. If one were to plot the point where the sun shines through the hole on the plaza at noon each day, by year’s end, the design pattern would form a figure 8, with the summer and winter solstice forming the two ends of the figure and the cross points being the fall and spring equinoxes. “We were interested in symbolically showing some of the relationships between mathematics and the natural world so the Saint Vincent analemma also contains a bumble bee and a pineapple which are symbols of life and hospitality and a cross which symbolizes the Benedictine monks,” said Alan Hohlfelder, a principal architect with McLachlan Cornelius and Filoni, Inc. “There are also mathematical relationships in the geometry of the rings on the pineapple and on a bumble bee’s hive.” The analemma is 15 and a half feet tall and two feet wide. It is made of corten steel, stainless steel and bronze. The shape of the plaza is a circle which represents the universe and within the circle is a square shape which represents manmade objects within that universe. The plaza is marked with large compass points—N, S, E and W—in brick. —Don Orlando

Douglas (Nowicki, O.S.B.), and Fr. Paul (Taylor, O.S.B.), and many others, have been great friends to my parents. So it is fitting that the building here should bear their names because of their tremendous respect and admiration for the value of a great education, and the deep gratitude for what this place has been to them. Collectively as a family, we hope that every student who has the privilege of being here is inspired. We know that in its giving, it is full of love from the two of them to all of you.” Another Dupré daughter, Michele Dupré, biologist, environmental engineer 6

a lifetime of scientific involvement that has taken her around the world on interesting research projects after graduate study at Carnegie Mellon and Duke universities. “Anyone who knows Herman knows that he is one of the hardest-working humans on this planet, but you may not know how much play he finds in his work,” Michele said about her dad. “Observing my father when he is working with his inventions is like watching a child with a new toy; he gets downright giddy with his experimentations. His eyes sparkle.”

encouraged each of her nine daughters to lead a life of exploration and adventure. Not only that, she armed us with the tools to do so. As a physical education teacher, she made sure we were all strong and athletic. As an English teacher, she taught us the importance of proper communication, and as an avid traveler herself, she set a good example of finding interesting places around the world. Thank you, mom, for encouraging me to see life as a series of adventures. You have taught me to take on the world and find persons, places and things that are new and foreign. You are my role model

and mentor of a mother who allows her children to be curious, take risks, explore and experiment.” Looking around at the state-of-the-art facility, characterized by the dramatic curved, three-story glass atrium, she said, “I imagine my father is looking at this building with envy because of what the students will do who get to study and play here, and I know my mom is excited about the adventures the Saint Vincent teachers and students will have because of this facility. Perhaps, if they had had more letters for the sign, I think they could have called this the Sis and Herman

Have fun.” Several brothers-in-law also offered some observations about the Duprés and their remarkable family, especially the Dupré sisters Denise, Laura, Rosi, Anni, Janeen, Heidi, Gretl, Michele, Renee, and 29 grandchildren. Charles Santry, husband of Anni Dupré, is co-founder, president and CEO of Snow Economics, Inc. He described how he has worked with his father-inlaw for more than 20 years, marveling at Herman Dupré’s curiosity, his attention to detail, and devotion to conservation

in producing his groundbreaking, energy-efficient snowmaking systems. “Herman applied physics and chemistry to snowmaking in a way no one had ever done before. He is a pioneer in research, never satisfied that he has reached the pinnacle of design, with an endless appetite for understanding how things work.” It is appropriate that a center for student testing, studying and hands-on experimentation should bear the family name, Santry said. “This building will be transformative for the faculty and student body. I hope that this will be

The Dupré Pavilion By The Numbers

DUPRÉ FAMILY HANGS TRADITIONAL SWISS COW BELLS IN NEW SCIENCE PAVILION By Don Orlando

I

n the snow-capped Alpine region, ancestors of the Dupré family for centuries experienced the distinctive ringing of cow bells which annually signaled the safe return of herds and the start of a festive fall celebration in the villages of Switzerland and Bavaria. That warm memory has now been brought to the new Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion where 11 bells were hung in the atrium by the Duprés and their nine daughters during the ceremonial dedication on June 25. The idea for the unique decoration was conceived by the Duprés during a recent visit to a bell factory near the Swiss capital of Bern where a small group of skilled craftsmen pour molten bronze into sand molds before polishing and adding thick leather straps with colorful fringing and accents. The bells are called Glocken and are still used by farmers to locate their cows. The artistic bells are also popular as souvenirs for home decoration, prize trophies for competitions and gifts. In the spring when the Alpine snow melt is finished, villagers send their cow herd to high mountain meadows to graze during the summer months. The event, called Alp-Aufzug, is celebrated in each village with a procession through the streets into the high pastures. The best milk producing cow in the village leads the procession, wearing the largest bell. In the fall the event is repeated as the animals return with their clanging bells. “When farmers hear the bells, everybody is happy because they know the cows survived. Likewise, today the sound of the bells signifies a happy time. It’s a nice custom,” said Herman Dupré.

a place where students, who have the aptitude and interest in science, will find the same fascination that I discovered through my association with Herman—a fascination with passion and purpose that will allow students to pursue original ideas which will advance the world.” Also speaking was Dr. Mininder S. Kocher, husband of Michele Dupré, who serves as associate director, Division of Sports Medicine, Children’s Hospital, 8

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

Boston, and as associate professor of Orthopedic Surgery, Harvard Medical School. He offered a scientific spin— nature and nurture—in his praise of the family. He noted that the Duprés have given to their family “great nature via their genes, and great nurturing of their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren, from their love and respect to their work ethic and fairness, from their scientific inquisitiveness to a life integrated

with nature, from discipline and high standards, to encouragement and generosity. May the nature and nurturing of Sis and Herman fill this building for the students and faculty of Saint Vincent as it has done for us.” The “magic of teamwork” of the Duprés was praised by son-in-law, Michael Galgon, founder of aQuantive, and husband to Gretl Dupré. Mr. Galgon praised the Duprés’ masterful teamwork,

noting they have forged “a union made up of love, understanding, patient humor and unwavering commitment to family and friends.” The hardworking couple, Galgon said, has produced “a world-class resort, 29 grandchildren, dozens of degrees, hundreds of friends, hundreds of thousands of miles traveled, millions of smiles and snow.” He thanked his in-laws, and said he knew they would be proud of the Saint Vincent students for whom “the bar has been set high; may Saint Vincent students strive for lofty goals and achieve excellence in learning.” Another son-in-law, Mark Nunnelly, managing director, Bain Capital, and husband to Denise Dupré, said the Dupré Pavilion “is a fitting tribute to lives lived so well.” He drew a comparison between the family and the beloved Alpine flower, the edelweiss, which is not only the name of the family homestead at Seven Springs, but also the name of the popular “Sound of Music” song whose singing is known to brings tears to the eyes of the Dupré daughters. He pointed out that the word edelweiss, when translated, means “strong and pure and white,” and is an apt comparison to this “great family for its strength of character, the rareness of its specialness, and the purity of its objectives and spirit.” And addressing the Duprés, he said, “That makes you the edelweiss in so many of of our lives; thank you, congratulations, and we love you so much.” The dedication ceremony also included remarks by Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., president, Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., chancellor, and the Rev. Paul R. Taylor, O.S.B., executive director of Saint Vincent Archabbey Educational Apostolates and Endowments. “I have known Herman and Sis for a long time,” Archabbot Douglas said. “Through tough beginnings, by their hard work and endurance, and overcoming all kinds of obstacles, they built Seven Springs, a world-renowned ski resort. If they had done only that, it would be sufficient to honor them. However, they did something much more significant. They never lost sight of the most important thing and that is the gift of life—to try to be authentic

human beings. This family not only cares for the people that they know, but by this pavilion, they have extended their caring to the education of young people —students who through their generosity and educations will enable them to help create a better world for all of them.” “The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is an extraordinarily important facility for Saint Vincent College,” Br. Norman said. “What it means for our sciences and mathematics programs is creating a space where students and faculty members can do science together—to facilitate significant interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary programming. The other element of the design is one that promotes a lot of informal interactions between and among the faculty and students. We are providing the kinds of spaces where our faculty and students can be engaged in doing sciences and mathematics most effectively.” The dedication ceremony also included a ceremony of the bells for the installation and ringing of 11 custommade Swiss cow bells in the atrium—11 representing the couple and all of their daughters. In the Alpine highlands, the sound of bells signals the safe return of the farmers’ cows from the mountains in the fall and the start of a celebration in the villages. The beloved Edelweiss song was also played, and colorful banners and bright red geraniums, a family favorite, decorated walkways and the atrium. A reception followed the ceremony in the Fred M. Rogers Center where Heidi Anderes, the eldest granddaughter, presented memorial bells to each of the grandchildren. Toasts were offered by Joseph Marinello and Br. Norman, and a video presentation honoring the Dupré family was shown. The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion provides classrooms, high-tech laboratories and offices for the Boyer School named for Dr. Herbert Boyer, a 1958 alumnus, who has been honored as a pioneer for research into gene splicing to meet medical needs through the firm he co-founded, Genentech, Inc.

The name of the pavilion’s new 70 seat 3-D digital projection conference hall bears the name of another alumnus, the late Dr. Frank Luparello, C’49, director of medical education at Mercy Hospital and one of the first directors of medical education in the country. The reconstruction of the former science center is a multi-phase project, whose planning and fundraising began several years ago, and included total renovation of the former science buildings. Construction is continuing with a target completion date of fall of 2012.

This project has been characterized by a careful and considered design with a commitment to the latest in scientific technology through updated labs and classrooms designed to benefit faculty members and students. The project also has been designed to be as “green” as possible—in keeping with the traditional notion of Benedictine stewardship and care of the natural world. A geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels and other features are helping the project earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold rating, awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council to environmentally friendly and ecologically efficient buildings.

erman Dupré graduated from Saint Vincent College in 1953 with a bachelor of arts degree in chemistry. An inventor and entrepreneur, he holds 34 U.S. patents and developed one of the largest snowmaking systems in the world at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Champion, Pennsylvania. He is the chief engineer for Snow Economics, Inc. and his system is used worldwide. Mr. Dupré served as chief executive officer of Seven Springs for 40 years prior to his retirement in 1992. He was honored by Saint Vincent College in 1998 with the conferral of an honorary Doctor of Science Degree. The former Mary “Sis” McSwigan was originally from Pittsburgh and enjoyed an outstanding career as a teacher of English and physical education in the Pittsburgh City School System. The Duprés said that they are very happy with the new science facility. “Herman and I are very honored to have this building named for us,” Mrs. Dupré said. “It is such a great legacy for the two of us to pass on to future students, our grandchildren, our great-grandchildren, friends and family. We would like to think of

it as the result of a lifetime of great fondness and love for Saint Vincent College. “It is often said that Herman was such a scientist in his own way,” she continued. “But he was really a specialist in science. He was very good at two things—making snow and making baby girls. So, we’d like to honor our nine daughters here because they were very instrumental in moving this along and making sure we were comfortable with everything. They wanted to share in this. They have all had an input and have been very interested and happy to see something that would carry on our legacy—our names—in such a wonderful building. It is magnificent. We hope that one day there will be a scientist from Saint Vincent who will cure cancer or cure Alzheimers or cure something else and it will happen because of the existence of this facility. This is a tree and we hope it drops a lot of good fruit.” The couple has nine daughters— Denise, Laura, Rosi, Anni, Janeen, Heidi, Gretl, Michele, and Reneé. “It is now 58 years since I graduated so Saint Vincent has been part of my life for more than 60 years,” Mr. Dupre said. “Some memories are indelible and continue from that time—I will remember them forever. I recall my first day on campus and all of the freshmen were wearing these green beanies—it was a mark of humility. You had to wear this little green dink hat and all of the upperclassmen would poke fun. “I was always an innovator,” he continued. “And I got involved in many things, not all of which were according to Hoyle. I recall once being called into the dean’s office because some students had moved the sign from Saint Xavier’s to Saint Vincent. Fr. Edmund Cuneo, O.S.B.,

the dean, said he was not going to ask me if I was involved but just wanted to know who I was with. After I told him that I would not tell him, I promised that the problem would be reversed the next day. “Probably the thing I remember most is the good fellowship that I had with some of the Benedictine priests,” he said. “Fr. Joel Lieb, Fr. Wilfred Dumm, Fr. Aelred Beck became what I call ‘comps’— compadres in Italian—who would do anything for you. They were very kind to us in the classroom and outside of it, including sharing a few beers with us on occasion. It was just such a great experience during all four years. Even though I always went home on the weekends to help my father at Seven Springs, I made the most of it and the school was super good to me. I have nothing but good feelings for Saint Vincent. I am just delighted to be part of the continued enhancement of the campus.” The Duprés enjoy their relationship with Archabbot Douglas Nowicki, O.S.B. “Archabbot Douglas is a wonderful person,” Mr. Dupré added. “He is super thoughtful. He put all of this together, not me. I had a small part in it but Saint Vincent should be thankful to have Archabbot Douglas. With Br. Norman as president and other great people at Saint Vincent, Sis and I are confident that Saint Vincent will see continued success.” “Archabbot Douglas is a very special person,” Mrs. Dupré said. “He not only knows Herman and me but he could probably name our grandchildren. For him this was an idea. He is such a visionary to put this together and to utilize the existing facilities while classes continued during the construction. The new building is bright and

cheery, a friendly, happy place. We are happy to be part of it.” The Duprés attribute their success to simply working hard and treating their customers well. “One of the things we learned at Seven Springs was that the hospitality world is made up of so many wonderful people,” Mrs. Dupré said. “If you are nice to your customer, it goes a long, long way.” Denise, the Dupres’ oldest daughter, wrote a book on hospitality that she is teaching at Harvard University in their School of Hospitality.

“Our daughters learned early on in life that you have to be humble no matter what job you are in or what your project is,” Mr. Dupré said. “You have to be thoroughly thankful to your customers because if you have no customers you have no business. “It is wonderful to see how things have progressed here at Saint Vincent,” Mr. Dupré concluded. The college is twice the size it was when I was here. I am so proud that we have a school like Saint Vincent in western Pennsylvania.”

Digital Imaging Laboratory A Rare Gem By Kim Metzgar

The state-of-theart digital imaging lab provides opportunities for teaching and research.

n a quiet office on the second floor of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion, Dr. Bruce Bethke scrolls through colorful images of cells— views taken from the 13 microscopes in the pavilion’s digital imaging laboratory—providing a play-by-play as we look at his computer monitor. “In a typical transparent cell light simply washes through, so we have to find another way to obtain data.” He clicks on the image to enlarge it. “Here, for example, we have three-color fluorescence.” He launches into a discussion on regenerative medicine, the difficulty of studying the brain, and a recent research project where a student attempted to reduce fat accumulation in cells using a newly discovered protein. The digital imaging laboratory is one of the jewels in the gem that is the Dupré Pavilion. It was funded by a nearly $200,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and a match by the College. Now in its new, bright, spacious room, Bethke enjoys demonstrating its features to visitors, including most recently Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. The way this technology is used at Saint Vincent is unique. “The digital imaging laboratory is a facility for use of natural science students and faculty members to image and analyze materials of scientific interest. It is a hybrid facility for both teaching and research,” Bethke said. “The advantage to a centralized facility versus

science pavilion a separate research area is that we can take 24 students—the maximum size for the lab—and have them all active in the process of discovery simultaneously. “The design allows for eight student workstations—three students per station—in addition to five other specialized microscopes in the lab. The technology at those stations actively engages students in their work, and that is important to keeping students enrolled in science programs. First-year attrition

Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing, he added. “Since the largest major in the Boyer School is biology, most of these students will be exposed to the technology in the digital imaging lab.” By the second week of the semester, freshman students begin to use the facility. Many come in with a predisposition to not like working with a microscope, he said. “But we are interested in engaging them, and we accomplish this, in part,

In the image above Y-box binding protein is localized to both the nucleus and cytoplasm of the two cultured human malignant melanoma cells on the left, while localization is predominantly nuclear in the multi-drug resistant cell on the right.

for science majors,” he added, “can often be attributed to lack of captivation with their work. Getting students engaged in a dynamic, contemporary way can make a difference.” The lab set-up also “promotes collaboration. When we take a group of 24 students, they work in groups of three on a project using digital file exchange, rather than taking turns looking through a microscope” he said. “They capture images and analyze them using quantitative software applications, and apply that to their coursework, or research projects.” At any time the professor can call up the image under a particular workstation’s microscope and project it onto a classroom screen for all to see and discuss what the slide or specimen may be indicating, Bethke said. This year, 40 percent of new students at Saint Vincent were coming in to the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural 14

using technology. People tend to look at biology as a descriptive science, but it is also a quantitative science. However, without the proper tools certain forms of quantitative research are not possible.” Biology majors complete a senior research project, and often obtain jobs related to their research. Bethke cited an example of a student whose project entailed searching for evidence that when a protein factor changed its localization within certain types of cancer, cells with the cancer would exhibit multiple drug resistance. “The student was able to take those cells, subject them to treatment with various cancer drugs, and monitor the subcellular localization of that particular protein using fluorescent techniques. The fluorescent techniques associate color with a protein. By monitoring the protein using those techniques, the student was able to demonstrate that higher protein levels were found in the nuclei of cells

resistant to a combination of drugs, and the resistance could be reversed by blocking the movement of the protein to the nucleus.” After graduation that student secured a job working with a biotechnology company that studies drug resistance in cancer cells. Bethke, of Greensburg, has been on the Saint Vincent College faculty for 16 years. He has a Ph.D. in biology (molecular genetics), as well as a master of science degree in biology from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.; and a bachelor of arts degree in biology (vertebrate zoology) from The College of Wooster, Wooster, Ohio. Currently the chairperson of the Biology Department, his two postdoctoral fellowships involved work at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland. His publications in professional journals include articles in Genetics, Nucleic Acids, Research, Methods in Molecular Biology and Gene. Conferences at which he has presented include those of the Genetics Society of Americas, the XVIth International Congress of Genetics, the Society for Developmental Biology Annual Meeting, and the Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) Summer Institute. Bethke has supervised more than 70 undergraduate research projects, written numerous successful grant proposals, and conducted many outreach activites while at Saint Vincent. He has been honored with the Thoburn Award for Teaching Excellence (2006), the Quentin Schaut Faculty Award recognizing exceptional achievement (2002), and was named to Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers (2002). He is a member of the Genetics Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Sciences. “The most common reaction from guests or alumni coming on tours,” Bethke said, “is ‘Can I come back and work here?’ It is really rewarding when we can amaze people with the hidden gem we have here.”

The Angelo J. Taiani Planetarium and Astronaut Exhibit

Angelo J. Taiani, C’48, first became interested in aerospace when he was assigned to work with early guided missiles and space ordnance as a project officer for the first 10 Jupiter launches with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. He worked on numerous projects at NASA as a general space engineer, in test support at Cape Canaveral and later at the Kennedy Space Center on the Juno project. He also worked in support of the Space Shuttle program.

When Taiani heard about the new planetarium and exhibit planned for the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion at his alma mater he knew he wanted to help. With a generous gift, a glass-walled atrium encloses a state-of-the-art planetarium named in his honor, and the astronaut exhibit brings recognition to the nation’s first space program. The planetarium features the latest digital technology that can project the nighttime sky and take viewers on a tour of the solar system—a fitting tribute to both his roots at Saint Vincent and his career at NASA.

The Dr. Frank J. Luparello Lecture Hall

Dr. Frank Luparello, C’49, D’87, trained thousands of doctors during his 50-year career. As the director of medical education at Mercy Hospital, he was one of the first directors of medical education in the United States, and his work is known throughout the country. He had lifelong admiration for the Benedictine teachers he had as an undergraduate pre-medical student at Saint Vincent. “Dr. Luparello influenced the care of literally millions… through education of medical students, residents and ongoing education of practicing physicians,” said Thomas W. Nasca, M.D., former dean of Jefferson Medical College.” The lecture hall named in his honor pays tribute to an outstanding teacher and physician.

the loe china studies center svc and china By Julia Cavallo

Dean of Studies Alice Kaylor, second from left, Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., president, and Dr. Gary Quinlivan of Saint Vincent meet with representatives from China.

T

he generosity of Dr. Barbara Loe in friendship with Archabbot Douglas Nowicki, O.S.B., made their vision of China Studies at Saint Vincent College a vibrant reality today through the establishment of the Loe China Studies Center in September 2001. The school is housed in the School of Humanities and Fine Arts. The spiritual bond between the Loe family and Saint Vincent goes back to the friendship of Professor James Ignatius Loe and Fr. Gregory Schramm, O.S.B., colleagues at Fu Jen Catholic University in Peking. The university was founded by the Benedictine community in 1925 when Aurelius Stehle, O.S.B., served as Archabbot. On July 21, 1933, the Loe family was baptized and received into the Catholic Church by Fr. Gregory at the North Cathedral in Peking. Since its establishment in 2001, the James and Margaret Tseng Loe China Studies Center has been a focal point for the work of many scholars to advance understanding and cooperation between Chinese and American cultures as a foundation for promoting world peace. The following initiatives typify the work of many to advance China studies at Saint Vincent. While in China in May, Br. Norman Hipps, O.S.B., continued work toward forging an agreement with Beijing Normal University to establish a program that will grant an M.B.A. and Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence. Dr. Gary Quinlivan, who designed the program with Beijing Normal scholars, said he expects the first students to enroll in Fall 2012 pending the approvals of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the China Ministry of Education. “The program will enable students to study two years in China and earn an M.B.A. from Beijing Normal University and then spend one full year at Saint Vincent and complete a Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence,” Dr. Quinlivan said. He and Dr. Richard Kunkle are working to establish connections with companies that will enable students to complete internships while pursuing the M.B.A. degree. The internships are also available to undergraduate students who will study in China. Dr. Barbara Loe 16

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

“Job placement for students who complete internships in China will be excellent, especially for international business majors. This new program provides great opportunities for our students,” Dr. Quinlivan added. In 2007, Saint Vincent was named a Confucius Institute satellite campus, which has enabled the College to host visiting Chinese professors. Dr. Tina Johnson, director of China Studies at Saint Vincent, recently secured a grant for a Hanban Institute Confucius Classroom on campus. “The grant greatly enhances our resources, curriculum, and programming in China Studies. It gives us a direct link to Hanban—the governing body of the Confucius Institute in China. The grant will also help the Loe China Studies Center to offer additional programming and invite guest speakers to campus in the future,” Dr. Johnson noted. “Saint Vincent is distinctive because it emphasizes business studies and the liberal arts tradition. Often students only

learn good business skills, but do not know the language and culture, which are just as important. Here we combine the two areas and provide a unique experience for our students.” Currently, students can enroll in a China Studies minor and recently the College added the option to pursue teacher certification in Chinese language, one of only three higher education institutions in Pennsylvania to offer this certification. In addition, Saint Vincent has hired its first full-time Chinese professor for the Fall 2011 term. “Hiring Dr. Huili Zheng is a commitment on the part of the College to expand our offerings in China Studies,” Br. Norman said. “The continued growth in our China Studies curriculum coupled with the activities of the Loe China Studies Center positions the College to continue to offer students opportunities to deepen their understanding and cooperation between the people of the United States and China.”

Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., met with students, faculty members and administrators at Beijing Normal University this summer to discuss future degree programs between the university and Saint Vincent.

Total Immersion: Curiosity, China, Captivate Marketing Major By Simon Clayton C 12

F

or as long as I can remember, I have always been curious about the world. As a student at Saint Vincent College, I have had the opportunity to satisfy some of that curiosity, most recently by spending a semester abroad in China. Before that I traveled to Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) India, to volunteer with the Missionaries of Charity Sisters. When I arrived at Saint Vincent as a freshman, never did I imagine that I would live on the other side of the world for six months. Never did I imagine that I would visit the Great Wall of China, hike 12 miles in the Tiger Leaping Gorge, a canyon on the Yangtze River, and spend a weekend in the Tenggeli Desert in northern China’s Inner Mongolia. It has been said that to be fully immersed in a culture is the best way to embrace it and to understand it. When my family saw me off at 3 a.m. on February 13, I was on my way to total immersion. After my 12-hour flight I was greeted at the Beijing Capital International Airport by my residence hall director and with the sounds of people conversing in different languages. I was no longer in a familiar place. Yikes! After a weeklong orientation to get acquainted with our peers, the food and our home for the next six months, my new friends and I walked around Wu Dao Kou in northwest Beijing filled with excitement. One of my friends spoke Mandarin fluently so we did not have too much trouble finding our way around. The area was revamped for the 2008 Olympic

Games, and newer restaurants and clubs complemented the traditional street food vendors and restaurants. While in China I attended Tsinghua University in Beijing. In addition to classes, I wanted to be sure that I did something related to my marketing major. With the help and advice of Dr. Gary Quinlivan, Dean of the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics, and Government at Saint Vincent, I obtained an internship at Beijing Priority

Consulting, a business consulting firm that represented local Chinese and Pennsylvania firms. I met many business executives from different parts of the world and assisted in preparing for an exclusive “Mission to China” for small businesses in Pittsburgh. My time living in China was definitely not like living in Latrobe or my hometown of Newark, New Jersey. I was on my own. There were many hard lessons and many achievements. Saint Vincent,

its monks, faculty and staff members, and my fellow students helped provide me with the necessary tools to become successful. I have many memories that will last a lifetime. I made the most of my opportunity to travel halfway across the world, to live, eat and breathe and learn about China and its culture, as well as the culture in India. I hope many other students will be able to have that same opportunity.

nlike previous generations, undergraduate scholarships for a student today are a large part of the “college experience.” In fact, a scholarship can be the difference between a student attending Saint Vincent or choosing a less expensive institution. Did you know that approximately 90 percent of our students receive some sort of financial aid and that scholarships are often an important part of that package? It is a fact that scholarships truly do make a difference for nearly every student at Saint Vincent. Scholarships are effective ways to recognize academic achievement, support study in a specific discipline or of a certain nature, or encourage college attendance for students from a geographic location. But scholarship awards can transcend the mundane financial element of making college more affordable; a scholarship also can make a lasting impression about giving. Simon Clayton has received scholarships since he came to Saint Vincent four years ago. And, like many of our students, had he not received this assistance he would not have been able to attend Saint Vincent. In addition to the funds that Saint Vincent and other donors gave to him, he worked hard to raise additional funds to cover the costs. Simon was creative in his endeavors. Before the holidays, he took orders and baked pies to generate some of the needed funds, earning the endearing nickname “Simon the Pie Man.” He worked diligently toward this goal while completing his studies and remaining involved in many activities including SGA. When Simon returned to campus, he visited the Development Office to find out what he could do to help establish an endowment for students wanting to enhance their educational experience by spending a semester abroad. He felt that some students might not have the opportunity to find ways to supplement their incomes like he had. While such an endowment is an idea

that had been considered, it had not yet been planned or implemented. But thanks to Simon’s inquiry and some discussions by the president’s staff, an endowment for Semester Abroad Study is now being created. There are currently more than 200 endowed scholarships at Saint Vincent. Named endowed scholarship funds can be established with a gift of at least $25,000, and a donor can set criteria for the fund with a gift of at least $50,000. Additionally, anyone can make a gift to the College’s general scholarship endowment or to other existing endowed funds, such as The Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B. Minority Student Scholarship Fund. Established in 1988 by the friends and family members of Archabbot Douglas, P’63, C’68, S’72, D’95, the fund honors the Archabbot’s dedication to providing opportunities for a Saint Vincent education to a diverse group of young men and women. When you are considering ways to direct your gift to Saint Vincent, whether it is your ultimate legacy to the College or your annual gift, remember that gifts to scholarships have a meaningful impact on our students in more ways than just paying their bills. A scholarship instills in the recipient a genuine appreciation for the difference one gift can make!

You Can Help Students Like Simon By Your Giving to Saint Vincent If you would like more information about giving to a scholarship fund at Saint Vincent, please contact: Tracy H. Branson Vice President for Institutional Advancement 724-805-2962 tracy.branson@stvincent.edu.

aw professor Bruce Antkowiak, C’74, was recognized as a distinguished attorney, a charismatic and dynamic professor, husband and father, and defender of human rights at the 165th annual Saint Vincent College Commencement on May 7. The author of four books and numerous articles on the American judicial system, Antkowiak is a former assistant United States Attorney and criminal defense attorney in state and federal courts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He received an honorary doctor of law degree from College President Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B. Antkowiak told the 326 graduates who earned bachelor’s or master’s degrees that they will change the generation that follows them: “Look at the generations here today. Each of the ones that came before you have both profoundly affected you and helped define the challenge you will face when you have children of your own. “The generation of my parents was tough people indeed. They mined the coal, made the steel, did the paperwork for the wealthy few and raised big families all without much of a social safety net,” Antkowiak said. “Their lives were tough, hard and simple. For many of them, the worst part was that the education they so wanted to get was not in the cards for them. Mike Antkowiak, my father, he left school at 16 to work with his father. My mother, the valedictorian of her class found there were no scholarships for a girl from a poor Polish family and went to work as a legal secretary. How many great physicists and doctors and lawyers spent their lives in coal mines or secretarial pools because there was just no education for them to pursue? “What do you think that did to those people? Do you think their poverty made them forget how valuable education was? Do you think they wanted their children to stay within the walls their poverty forced them in?

BRUCE ANTKOWIAK NAMED PROFESSOR OF LAW AND LEGAL COUNSEL AT SAINT VINCENT COLLEGE

commencement

Commencement ceremony participants included, from left, Most Rev. Lawrence E. Brandt, Bishop, Diocese of Greensburg; Rt. Rev. Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., Archabbot and Chancellor, Saint Vincent College; Christian, son of Bruce Antokiwak; Bruce A. Antkowiak, commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient; Mrs. Barb Jene Antkowiak; Mr. J. Christopher Donahue, President and Chief Executive Officer, Federated Investors, Inc., Chairman of the Saint Vincent College Board of Directors; Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., President, Saint Vincent College and Dr. John Smetanka, vice president for academic affairs and academic dean.

“The tapestry of life is a marvelous and unified whole of which we are each a blessed and meaningful part.” — Bruce Antkowiak education was non-negotiable, a given in your life. This was the way it was to be. That was how they broke down the walls of the hard and simple life that had been theirs. “No matter what else you do, no matter what mountains you climb or fall off of, no matter if your name appears in lights or if a Google search of you comes up empty,” he said, “you will have a profound effect on the generation that follows you, and, most particularly, that portion of the generation you have a hand in begetting.” Antkowiak recently joined the faculty of Saint Vincent College as professor of law and legal counsel. He earned a bachelor of science degree, summa cum laude from Saint Vincent, and a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, summa cum laude, in 1977. A law professor at Duquesne University, he served as an assistant United States Attorney and as a criminal defense counsel in state and federal courts throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He has been invited to share 24

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

his expertise with many professional associations throughout the country as well as at the University of Glasgow and Oxford University. “Regardless of what direction your life may take in that gloriously uncharted land called the future,” Antkowiak said, “the journey that is most important to you is the journey you take to God. The tapestry of life is a marvelous and unified whole of which we are each a blessed and meaningful part.” It was Br. Norman’s first commencement ceremony as the 17th president of Saint Vincent College. Presiding over the academic exercises was Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., who also gave opening remarks and the invocation. Dr. John Smetanka, vice president for academic affairs and academic dean, was master of ceremonies. The benediction was given by the Most Rev. Lawrence E. Brandt, J.C.D., Ph.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg.

ruce A. Antkowiak has been named professor of law and legal counsel at Saint Vincent College by President Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B. Antkowiak will direct the implementation of a new program of studies in Criminology, Law, and Society, a degree program that began this fall at Saint Vincent College. In making the announcement, Br. Norman noted that “with the recent establishment of our program in criminology, we are fortunate to have Bruce Antkowiak help our students become effective leaders in advancing the cause of justice in our nation.” “I have spent the entirety of my professional life working in various aspects of the criminal justice system,” Antkowiak said. “Having served as a federal prosecutor, I also handled hundreds of cases as a criminal defense attorney in state and federal court for almost three decades. I look forward to working with the students and faculty of Saint Vincent College in helping to develop the conceptual legal knowledge and necessary professional skills to serve effectively in this field. “We will also provide opportunities for concrete life experiences in law and the criminal justice system which will enhance our students’ capacities for the pursuit of justice in our society today,” he said. “The criminal justice system is at a crossroads in our society. As an educational institution responsible for preparing those who will be seeking to serve in this area, it is our responsibility to see that our students have the preparation that will enable them to be effective leaders in this noble pursuit.” “Bruce Antkowiak brings a rich experience both in the classroom and in the practice of law to Saint Vincent. Equally important, Bruce is a great human being who will be a strong role model for our students,” said Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., Chancellor. Antkowiak has served as an assistant United States Attorney and as criminal defense counsel in state and federal courts

throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In those capacities, he has tried a multitude of cases before state and federal juries in matters ranging from complex white collar crime to criminal homicide. He has also argued numerous times before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the Superior and Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania.

hile Saint Vincent College continues to attract students at the national and international levels, many students from the local high schools choose to stay a little closer to home. Derry Area Senior High School’s graduating class valedictorians of 2008, 2009 and 2011 as well as the salutatorians from 2005, 2007 and 2010 selected Saint Vincent College for their undergraduate studies. But the connection between Saint Vincent and Derry Area runs longer than the mere 10 miles that separate the schools and much deeper than the streams that the environmental science students study.

In 1958, Herbert Boyer, a Derry Borough graduate, began his studies in biology and chemistry at Saint Vincent. Today, the College is home to The Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing, named for this highlysuccessful alumnus, the founder of Genentech, a firm considered the founder of today’s biotechnology industry. “Derry students know the strong reputation Saint Vincent students have and how well they are received at graduate and professional schools. The students know that they can go anywhere from Saint Vincent,” said Diane Mogle, a now-retired Derry guidance counselor. She encouraged students to not overlook Saint Vincent just because it was in their own back yard. “Saint Vincent has a wonderful blend of tradition and growth, never losing sight of its liberal arts identity, and there is a high level of teaching,” Mogle said. The local students grow up learning about Saint Vincent as many of their teachers, friends and family members studied there, and they are aware of the personal touch they will receive, similar to what they find at Derry Area. Recent Derry graduates following in the footsteps of Herbert Boyer include Jennifer Schweinsburg, Emily Amond, Stephanie Maskrey, and Amanda Skwara. “I developed a strong foundation in math and science at Derry, and I developed a love of Saint Vincent and real comfort with the campus and the professors I met by attending the Challenge camp,” said senior Jennifer Schweinsburg, who plans to become a doctor. “I was impressed with the reputation the Boyer School has for preparing students for medical school.” Schweinsburg will graduate in May with a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry and is currently applying to medical school, where she plans to study obstetrics/gynecology or anesthesiology.

derry connection She is in the beginning phases of her senior research project investigating protein misfolding, the cause of plaques and aggregates responsible for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson”s diseases. She will present her findings at the American Chemical Society’s annual conference in California this spring. “I credit all the wonderful teachers at Derry Area High School for getting me interested in learning,” said Emily Amond, a current Saint Vincent student. From her first days in the science department, she found the professors welcoming and genuinely interested in helping her succeed.

Jennifer Schweinsburg works in the lab.

“Every class that I have taken emphasizes the importance of becoming familiar with the material, rather than just getting a final grade at the end,” Amond said. “I have constantly been gaining theoretical and practical knowledge that will be essential to a future career as an analytical chemist.” Amond chose Saint Vincent College because of her interest in the sciences and because of her desire to learn about the world. She said she sees the school as the perfect fit for her intellectual goals. It was also highly regarded by her friends, who were either current students or recent graduates, she added. “At the time I was choosing a college, the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion was just beginning construction, and as a chemistry major, I couldn’t deny the excitement of being able to work and learn in a brand new, state-of-the-art laboratory environment,” she said. Carrying on the Derry Area-Saint Vincent tradition is freshman Stephanie Maskrey, who was an advanced placement chemistry student in high school. “I chose Saint Vincent for several reasons. Perhaps one of the most important reasons was because it’s personal. When I’m there, I feel like a person, not a number. During my junior year at Derry, I received a letter from Saint Vincent 28

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

that contained a hand-written note telling me how much they would love to have me as a student there. They made me feel welcome,” Maskrey said. Her ambition is to combine her love of math and a desire to make a difference by becoming a special education math teacher. Already in her post graduate work, Amanda Skwara, C’11, is enrolled at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia pursuing her M.D. “After looking at other programs, I was impressed with the good acceptance rates of Saint Vincent students into medical schools,” Skwara said. “I also found that the professors wanted to get to know you, and knew it would be a very supportive environment for my undergraduate degree.” She remains close to her professors and is working on publishing a research manuscript that she began while a Saint Vincent student with Dr. Michael Rhodes. “It was exciting,” she said, recalling the research that Dr. Rhodes was completing through Allegheny General Hospital. The manuscript is entitled Influence of environmental enrichment on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) responses to single-dose nicotine, continuous nicotine by osmotic minipumps, and nicotine withdrawal by mecamylamine in male and female rats. Skwara’s undergraduate research took her to Ege University in Izmir, Turkey for eight days with Dr. Rhodes. The two worked on a team that taught summer school to people from all over the world. She served as a teaching assistant in the laboratory. In addition to her studies, Skwara traveled with campus ministry to Brazil for a service trip, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Louisiana and completed an educational tour of Ireland with her fellow honors students. Skwara was introduced to Saint Vincent at an early age by her uncle, Emory Lesho, C’56, who is an alumnus, and by attending Steeler training camp, sporting events, parish events, and by meeting the outreach educators from the College’s Prevention Projects program. Her cousin, Justin Skwara also attended Saint Vincent. “I’m in the middle of my first anatomy class at Jefferson and I definitely have a leg up on my fellow students because of Saint Vincent and that gives me confidence. I couldn’t be happier,” Skwara said. Also hailing from Derry is vice president for Academic Affairs, Dr. John Smetanka. He graduated from Derry Area Senior High School, where he discovered his love of science and math. Although he attended Carnegie Mellon University to study physics, he returned to Westmoreland County to teach at Saint Vincent from 1997 to 2008, until he became the vice president of academic affairs. These ripples of excellence in education—begun by some pebbles cast from a local pond into a neighboring stream— might someday reach and impact a much larger sea, or even an ocean. Saint Vincent looks to the next generation of thinkers and the continued partnership with this neighboring high school.

woven into history Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery Dedicated By Kim Metzgar

A

frequently-used quote of Saint Vincent founder Archabbot Boniface Wimmer, O.S.B., includes the words “forward, always forward.” However, in the case of the Foster and Muriel Coverlet Collection at Saint Vincent College, students, researchers and visitors to the gallery named in the donors’ honor spend plenty of time looking into the past. Members of the Saint Vincent community, friends from the worlds of education, history, and art, as well as members of the McCarl family attended a dedication held on July 23 at the coverlet gallery, located on the first floor of the Fred M. Rogers Center on campus. “These coverlets are a national treasure,” said Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., chancellor. “They tell the story of our nation through the information woven by the creators into the coverlets themselves.” The gallery, housing one of the largest coverlet collections in the world, provides “unique opportunities for students of all ages to learn important facets of history, art, and education—such as immigration, local pride, display, preservation and cataloguing—and a colorful glimpse into 19th century social values the weavers sought to convey through their work,” said Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., College president.

MCCARL COVERLET GALLERY GRANT WILL DEVELOP HISTORY PROGRAM FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

Fr. Paul Taylor, O.S.B.; Curator Lauren Lamendola, Brian McCarl; Jim McCarl; Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B.; and Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B.

The dedication of the gallery, held six years after the McCarl family announced its gift of more than 300 coverlets, was held in conjunction with the opening of an exhibit on Victorian bridal traditions. Muriel and the late Foster McCarl of Beaver County began their collection in 1959, and continued to collect coverlets until Foster’s death in 2007 at age 83. “My dad felt that each coverlet was a separate piece of American history,” said their son, Brian. “Some of them have the weaver’s name and the client’s names, and sometimes the location and the dates where they were woven.” He recalled trips to auctions with his parents to Ohio and Lancaster, Pennsylvania, noting that “I grew up knowing the importance of the collection to my parents.” As part of the family’s interest in the coverlets, Brian helped document the collection with photographs and details such as size, color, and condition. A friend of Foster McCarl, the late Father Joseph Lemp, C’53, suggested that Saint Vincent would be a good place for the collection. Brian McCarl noted that his father was a school director in the Blackhawk District for more than 25 years, and wanted to make sure the students got a good education. “When the time came for him to donate his collection, the collection’s potential for education played a significant role in his decision,” he said.

Additionally, his father was concerned about the care of the coverlets, including wearing cloth gloves when handling, lighting control, air conditioning and humidity control, and proper storage, “so we did select the right place when we chose Saint Vincent College. When you put your whole life into purchasing 300 “I wanted to choose something that would represent aesthetic beauty, and also the idea of beauty, for the coverlets are not just a tangible artistic tradition and craft of early America, but they also stand for something greater, the stories and the culture of the people who fashioned them. So I came across a peacock in one of the coverlets and I thought this represented beauty in both dimensions. Taking a look at the presence of the peacock throughout art history, I thought this same regard would be consciously or subconsciously understood by the people who came to know the coverlet collection.”

coverlets, trust was a big part of where we were going to put this collection.” “We at the [McCarl family] foundation are committed to helping Saint Vincent College take it to the next level by making a significant contribution because we believe in what our parents started and we want to see it to the end,” said Brian’s brother, Jim, in his remarks. “We are thrilled at how the College has been able to incorporate an educational component into the collection and the displays,” said Jim McCarl. “This will be a real legacy for our parents and our family to help future generations enjoy these beautiful coverlets, and enjoy and understand more about the makers, their lives and the history of this amazing country of ours.” McCarl family members include Brian McCarl and his wife, Kirstin, his daughter, Maura, and her fiancé, Tony, and his daughter, Melissa; Jim McCarl and his wife, Carol; Kevin McCarl and his wife, Tammy, son, Michael, and wife, Casey, and daughter, Jessica; Shawn, and his wife, Kim. Among the guests attending the dedication was Dr. Clarita S. Anderson, author of American Coverlets and Their Weavers: Coverlets from the Collection of Foster and Muriel McCarl, Including a Dictionary of More Than 700 Coverlet Weavers. The database and research materials of Dr. Anderson and Catherine Hawthorne were subsequently donated to Saint Vincent. “Foster and Muriel McCarl chose Saint Vincent College as partners because of their shared commitment to the preservation of the coverlets,” Archabbot Douglas said. “The collection provides educational opportunities for students, scholars and for people beyond the campus to come to a deeper appreciation of their American heritage.” All of the McCarl family members have been supportive of their parents’ endeavor.

T

he federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Washington, D.C., has awarded a $14,649 grant to the Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery at Saint Vincent College to develop a “Woven Into History” program for elementary students. The grant will assist gallery staff members in developing, marketing, implementing and evaluating a new history-based program, targeted toward students in grades one to six. The gallery, which houses one of the largest collections of early American coverlets in the country, displays the 386-piece collection in a series of rotating exhibits. These exhibits interpret and preserve not only the coverlets, but the history of weaving and folk traditions in North America. This new program will provide a gateway into the history of mid-19th century America for these students, curator Lauren Lamendola said. She added that the grant will enable the staff to develop interpretive, object-

based lessons to help students discover the history of the coverlets and other American textiles and how this relates to their own lives. “We are thrilled to be able to move forward with our goal of using the coverlet collection to teach students about history through creative, hands-on experiences,” she said. “The late Foster McCarl, who donated the collection to Saint Vincent, was adamant that the coverlets he spent a lifetime collecting be used to teach a new generation of children about history.”

The McCarl Gallery grant was among 160 projects selected to receive funding totaling more than $18 million. There were 481 applications to the IMLS, which is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute works at the national level and in coordination with state and local organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge; enhance learning and innovation; and support professional development. The coverlet collection was a gift to Saint Vincent College by Muriel and the late Foster McCarl of Beaver Falls. The coverlet gallery is housed in the Fred M. Rogers Center on the Latrobe campus. Visitors have come from throughout the world to view the collection, including His Royal Highness Prince Ludwig of Bavaria in 2009, and most recently, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. “Congratulations to the Museums for America grantees. We are pleased to support museums through investments in high-priority, high-value activities that benefit communities throughout the U.S. These museums, small and large, will help to educate and inspire the public for years to come,” said IMLS Director Susan Hildreth.

n almost the blink of an eye, our world has become simply inundated with digital media. It’s a part of our culture—a part of everyday living for people of all ages. With such abundant opportunities for the use of new media, the mission-driven work of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College focuses on the positive potential of technology and interactive media as a tool for learning and development. In addition to its ongoing core commitments (such as curation of the Fred Rogers Archive, sponsorship of the biennial Fred Forward Conference series, and research and new development through Center Senior Fellows and the Early Career Fellows program), the Rogers Center has embarked on a number of new initiatives for leadership in defining, studying, and demonstrating quality in children’s digital media. “We want to demonstrate in a variety of ways the continuing relevance of Fred Rogers’ unique contributions to early childhood development and children’s media,” said Rita Catalano, executive director of the Rogers Center. “His fundamentals—always grounded in research on what’s best for young children—are timeless and apply to today’s world of digital media.” Focusing on the issues affecting young children (ages birth to 5), the Rogers Center’s new Curriculum Toolkit has been designed to be an engaging, online resource for higher education faculties anywhere. The Toolkit includes syllabi and course materials that draw on the Fred Rogers Archive, including clips from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and the Fred Rogers Oral History Project. Using social media, the Toolkit encourages dialogue among faculty members in early childhood education, media studies, psychology and related fields.

rogers center In addition to this online community for academics, the Rogers Center will soon introduce an innovative resource for reaching out directly to caregivers of young children. Early in 2012, the Fred Rogers Center Early Learning Environment ™ (coined ELE for short) will launch online. ELE stresses adultchild conversation from birth as critical for early literacy, school readiness and life success. For the target audience of underserved, under-resourced teachers, home-based providers and families, ELE will compile high-quality, media-based content to enrich the learning experiences for children birth to age 5. In November of this year, the Rogers Center and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) will announce a new, jointly developed position statement on technology, interactive media and early childhood education. The position statement announcement will take place at the 2011 NAEYC national conference, in Orlando. In related work building on the position statement, the Rogers Pennsylvania Governor Tom Center also is leading Corbett pays a visit to King Friday national roundtables XIII and Lady Elaine at the Fred M. and planning to develop Rogers Archive.

media. The framework will guide parents, educators and media professionals in the selection, use, and creation of quality media across platforms and devices. And not only is the Rogers Center dedicated to building bridges between early learning and children’s media, it is also committed to deeply integrating its work with Saint Vincent’s academic programs. In Summer 2010, a task force comprised of Rogers Center and College leadership, including Catalano, Senior Fellow Maxwell King, President Br. Norman Hipps, O.S.B., and Archabbot and Chancellor Rt. Rev Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B, engaged in a dialogue on mutually beneficial program partnerships between the Rogers Center and faculty members and students of the College. “There is a fundamental connection between the traditions of the College and the principles of faith and spirituality that guided Fred’s work,” said Catalano. “I think that’s a big part of why he wanted the center to be here . . . the College is very Fredlike and Fred was very Benedictine-like.” The task force recommendations have resulted in planning for a new undergraduate minor in children’s studies. The new minor is expected to launch in 2013, with some courses to be offered before that time. Another of the task force recommendations— the Fred Rogers Scholars Program—is currently being piloted

with six juniors, offering this select group of students unique opportunities to connect with the Rogers Center (including through interactions with the Early Career Fellows), as well as to engage in firsthand learning experiences through webinars, field trips and special projects. The Scholars Program will be in full swing by fall 2012, with five freshmen participating throughout the duration of their undergraduate careers. The Rogers Center is also sharing its production facility with faculty and students. This fall, the “Lab Workshop” is being used by the Communication Department for courses in media production. And, finally, the Rogers Center has taken on a major project that will give deeper insight into the man who came to be known as everyone’s favorite neighbor. Senior Fellow King is writing a biography on Rogers’ life, remarkable career and legacy. The biography is planned for publication in late 2014.

Orange Sneakers Leading to New Goals Senior Pursues Olympic Dream By Liz Cousins 38

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

vette Mejia wasn’t part of a crosscountry team in high school. The eight-time President’s Athletic Conference cross country Runner of the Week and New York city native was a road runner, meaning she ran for herself, on local streets, roads and trails. And she never visited Saint Vincent before making her decision to attend college here, either. “I was guided by intuition,” she said. With no intention of running in college, Mejia wasn’t concerned about looking at athletics when she selected a college. She was interested in Saint Vincent’s liberal arts program. But her entrance essay about her orange running sneakers changed all of that. Heather Wasler, an admission counselor, contacted her, wanting to learn more about Mejia. “Heather really surprised me,” Mejia said. “She cared. Shortly after, Coach Harbert, the cross country coach, contacted me about being a member of the team.” Her transition from solo road runner to cross country team member was hard at first. “I had no structured training,” she said. “I learned to work together with my team members, and I think I’ve adapted well. I like having someone running with me. I feel like I’m pushing them too.” But the structured training paid off.

Throughout her four-year career at Saint Vincent she has worked hard to reduce her running times, dropping from running 5 kilometers in 21:13 in 2008, her freshman year, to finishing the 2011 Saint Vincent Alumni Run 5K in 18:11. Her training includes weight lifting while frequently running twice a day. She works closely with women’s cross country head coach Tom Harbert about how to make her races better and meets with him after races to analyze what she did well and what she wants to work on for the next race. “She is probably one of the most coachable individuals I’ve ever worked with,” said Coach Harbert. “She has running in her heart.” Running led Mejia to discover that she has an entrepreneurial mind. “Building up to run a race is like building up to run your own company. How do I modify my training schedule to get a better performance? How do I modify my business plan to build a better company? Both entrepreneurs and runners are very persistent and do not know what risk is.” Mejia does have one secret that she credits with making her a better runner: “Coach Harbert believes in me.” And Mejia is determined to reward that

faith. “I think to myself ‘Coach, I will be dedicated and work hard because I told you that I will.’” The college essay that started this journey talked about how when Mejia was out running, wearing her orange sneakers, she found time to relax and consider all her hopes and dreams. Not dreams about running, but goals to help

her family and for her career. But now those orange sneakers are helping her set a running-related goal. “After college, I’m going for it. I’m going for the Olympic dream. No question in my mind anymore. For 2016—not 2012—hopefully I’ll make it to the Eugene, Oregon, Olympic trials.”

Bearcat Squad Opens at Home with Victory

T

he Bearcat football team won the first home game of the 2011 season by a score of 55–3 over the Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham Devils on September 10. The SVC team scored on the opening drive on a two-and-a-half-yard touchdown pass from Quarterback Aaron Smetanka to Fullback Scott Weaver and never looked back. The team scored 21 points in the first quarter, including freshman Defensive Back Darius Brown’s runback of a field goal attempt that was blocked by Jovaughn Johnson, a junior linebacker. The Devils were held to a single field goal for the game. Other Bearcat scores included Huey Ehredt’s 65-yard run to make the score 21-3 before the end of the first quarter, followed by tight end Cody Strelick’s 10-

yard catch. The Bearcats closed out the half with a 13-yard pass from Smetanka to Joe Yezovich. The scoring ended with a 21-point third quarter as Douglas scored again, followed by Mike Kale to make the score 48-3. Running back Chris Brown wrapped up the scoring with a five-yard run near the end of the third quarter. Smetanka finished the game 23 for 26 on pass attempts, throwing for 247 yards and 4 touchdowns, and was named the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week. The Bearcats will host Thomas More College on October 15, followed by games at Grove City College and Waynesburg College on October 22 and 29.

r. Kimberly Baker, assistant professor of theology at Saint Vincent College, was honored with the Catherine Mowry LaCugna Award presented by the Catholic Theological Society of America at the group’s annual convention in San Jose, California, on June 10. The CTSA grants one award each year to a new scholar for the best academic essay in the field of theology within the Roman Catholic tradition. Dr. Baker’s award was given for her article, “Augustine’s Doctrine of the Totus Christus: Reflecting on the Church as Sacrament of Unity,” which appeared in

the Spring 2010 issue of Horizons. “In the article, I considered how the preaching of Augustine of Hippo, a fifth century North African bishop, may contribute to the contemporary theology of what it means to be Church,” Dr. Baker said. “I propose that Augustine’s doctrine of the Totus Christus, the ‘whole Christ’ with Christ as Head and the Church as Body, can serve as a resource for reflection on Vatican II’s vision of the Church as the sacrament of unity.

ENGLISH PROFESSOR RECEIVES NEA FELLOWSHIP

M

ichelle GilMontero, assistant professor of English, has received a National Endowment of the Arts Literature Translation Fellowship of $12,500. She will use the award to translate the novel The Annunciation by Spanish language author María Negroni. She was one of 16 awardees, taken from a pool of 105 applicants. Published in 2008, The Annunciation is an imaginative and structurally innovative novel exploring 42

s a in t v in c en t q u a rterl y

the atmosphere of Argentina during the Dirty War. Emphasizing structure over plot, Negroni resists narrative traditions like chronology and instead conjures a sense of “ubiquitous time,” while freely traversing narrative styles as diverse as memoir, history, and fantasy. This will be the first translation of The Annunciation into English. Gil-Montero earned her master of fine arts degree in poetry at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop on a Dean’s Merit Scholarship. There, she won

the Academy of American Poets University Prize in 2007. Her translations from Spanish have appeared in numerous journals, including Conjunctions, Words Without Borders, Hudson Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, and in the anthology The Oxford Book of Latin American Poetry (Oxford University Press, 2009). Her translation of Poetry After the Invention of América: Don’t Light the Flower will be published by Palgrave MacMillan, as part of the Modern and Contemporary

Poetry and Poetics book series, in November. NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman said, “Translation not only brings great literature to wider audiences, but it also creates a broader awareness of cultures. Through these 16 fellowships, the NEA is bringing knowledge of cultures around the world, from both the past and present, to American audiences.”

D

r. Stephen M. Jodis has been named dean of the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing. Jodis joins the Saint Vincent College senior staff after 21 years at Armstrong Atlantic State University (AASU), Savannah, Georgia, where he served most recently as interim dean of the College of Science and Technology and professor of computer science. A 1985 graduate of Auburn University where he earned a bachelor of computer engineering degree, he also earned a master of science degree and a Ph.D. from the department of computer science and engineering there. He is a commissioner of the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology, and is active as a program evaluator and accreditation team chair. He is also a member of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM). A native of southern Michigan, his family moved to Alabama while he was in high school. During the trip, he says he loved the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee. When he came to the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania to visit Saint Vincent, he had the same reaction to the Chestnut Ridge and mountains to the east. “Saint Vincent has some unique academic features that were attractive to me,” Dr. Jodis said. “The bioinformatics, environmental science and biochemistry programs are interesting collaborative efforts. The other thing that attracted me was the new Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion. When you come into this building, it just puts a smile on your face because it is so impressively well done. It is well planned and

implemented in every detail. The enthusiasm of the faculty is very evident and the generous laboratory and classroom spaces result in excellent opportunities for the students.” “One thing is very evident to a newcomer to Saint Vincent and that is the focus on students,” Dr. Jodis concluded. “Helping students achieve their goals is the top priority. You can accomplish a lot by listening to what others have to say and their vision.” Jodis said that he looks forward to advancing the strategic plan for the Boyer School and to developing new collaborative and interdisciplinary opportunities for students and faculty members. “We will all work together to make things happen,” he added. Jodis has been honored with membership in the Phi Kappa Phi National Honorary Society, Upsilon Pi Epsilon National Computer Science Honorary, and Epsilon Delta Pi National Computer Science Honorary. He received the AASU Distinguished Faculty Service to the University Award in 2010. The author of numerous articles, presentations, manuals, technical reports, professional papers and encyclopedia entries, Jodis is also the author of a textbook, Computer Programming Concepts. Jodis and his family—wife, Maria, and sons, Christopher and Matthew—have recently relocated to the city of Latrobe. They were formerly members of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Georgia where he served as a lector.

‘AMERICA’S BEST’ AGAIN Forbes business magazine again listed Saint Vincent College among the top colleges in the nation in the release of its fourth annual ranking of “America’s Best Colleges.” “Saint Vincent College is pleased to be included in the rankings again in this rating of American colleges,” said Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., president. “With 650 of the accredited post-secondary institutions in the United States selected for inclusion on the list, Saint Vincent is, in Forbes’ judgment, among the top 20 percent of all undergraduate colleges and universities in the nation.” Forbes uses more than ten factors in compiling the rankings with no single factor counting as much as 20 percent. The factors that are considered in the rankings include student satisfaction, postgraduate success, student debt, four-year graduation rate and competitive awards. Ten percent of the ranking is based on alumni listings in Who’s Who in America, so the success of Saint Vincent alumni in many fields is a significant factor in this determinant. Another 15 percent is based on the salaries of alumni from Payscale.com, another important measure of the career success of Saint Vincent graduates. The Forbes ranking underscores the excellent value that Saint Vincent provides as one of the top colleges in the state and in the nation.

Made for These Times That are a-Changin’

D

r. Richard Gosser, executive director of Partners in Progress, was honored April 13 at the spring Honors Convocation. The Saint Vincent alumnus taught in the mathematics department for nearly 30 years before developing a deep interest in Haiti, what he called his “post doc” education. In his address, he recalled those professors who most influenced him: “Michael W. Botsko—my teacher, my mentor, my colleague and my friend; Bill Dzombak—who turned me on to the Liberal Arts and taught me How to Read a Book; Denny Quinn; Roy Mills; Dick Wissolik—thank you, Dick; Fr. Ludwig Cepon; Bim Walker; Art Cicero; and George Patterson.” In Haiti, a country most often referred to as the poorest country in the hemisphere, Gosser said “my mentors were not Ph.D.s but rather peasant farmers, many of whom have never so much as read a book or held a pencil. “My wife Daneen and I first went to Haiti in response to a book we read in which the author challenges the reader to encounter Jesus—not in the Holy Land where he walked more than 2000 years ago—but in what the author referred to as the ‘unholy land’ where Jesus can be met today among people who are desperately poor. He specifically named the area of City Sovey, or City of the Sun, that vast slum built on what used to be the garbage dump of Port au Prince, the capital city of Haiti. “We went to Haiti to see for ourselves. There we encountered a people who, in spite of their extreme material poverty, are remarkably rich—rich in their hospitality and their warm welcome to strangers; rich in their love for song and for dance and for the sheer joy of living; rich in their culture and creativity, their industry and determination; and most especially rich in their deep faith in God.” Gosser never planned to return to Haiti, but felt compelled to. “I could not find an excuse sufficient for ignoring the needs I saw there. My response began as compassion and simple charity. It grew to anger and indignation at the systemic injustices that keep poor people poor, and has evolved to a simple solidarity with brothers and sisters, sharing a common humanity and a deep interconnectedness.” Some of the challenges Haitians face include not only extreme material poverty, but extreme disparity between the rich and the poor; ineffectual and corrupt government; depletion of resources, water pollution and erosion; climate change and drought; severe storms; exploitative

corporations and trade relations that exacerbate the hunger issue; and malnutrition. “In 1999 we helped create Partners in Progress (PIP) to support sustainable community development in rural Haiti by collaborating with visionary leaders of strong grassroots organizations in their efforts to develop strategies of resilience in the face of these challenges and their impacts,” Gosser said. “At some point I began to see a bigger picture and I began to think of Haiti as a kind of metaphor, a kind of ‘window on our worlds’ through which to see and to understand better not just Haiti and the so-called Third World, but our world as well…For two centuries and longer humankind has been on a collision course with the limits of the earth and of civilization itself. Civilization is facing its own un-sustainability in the face of multiple challenges in the areas of the economy, energy, the environment, and even water and food. “In my generation it was the poet-songwriter Robert Allen Zimmerman—better known as Bob Dylan—who proclaimed that ‘the times they are a-changin’. Today, even more than in the 60s, ‘the times are a-changin’ and they are changing in ways that are utterly unprecedented. We stand today at a ‘turning point’ never before faced by our species or our planet. “In these changing times we are given the gift of a great challenge. The challenge of our generation and even more of the generation coming of age today—what philosopher and theologian Thomas Berry called the ‘great work’—is to fashion a controlled transition to a sustainable and sustaining community, to secure the great gift of life in all its forms, and to pass it on undiminished to unnumbered generations. Our challenge is to become wise stewards and ‘good ancestors.’ Genuine sustainability will demand not superficial changes, but something deeper, akin to humankind growing up to a fuller stature. “There are—quite frankly— not a lot of reasons to be optimistic, if by optimism we mean that we think the odds favor our success,” Gosser said. “There is, however, cause for hope, if by hope we understand a verb with sleeves rolled up ready to get to work.” Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B. with Dr. Richard Gosser.

As Berry reminds us, we did not choose the ‘great work’ before us. We were chosen by a power beyond ourselves and we must believe that the same Lord and Giver of Life who assigns our role will bestow on us the ability to fulfill it. “Something else useful that I’ve learned from our Haitian brothers and sisters is that the transition to a sustainable and sustaining future will be greatly aided by cultivating a spirit of gratitude. When Haitians pray, more than 90 percent of their prayers are saying ‘thank you!’ They are all the more resilient in the face of daily challenges and catastrophic events because they are so aware of and so thankful for the gift of life and all that sustains it. Gratitude requires a perspective beyond self. It is the art and science of applied love. It honors the great gift and mystery of life itself. “The times are indeed a-changin’. But—as my Haitian friends might say: ‘Nou fet pou tan sa yo.’ We were born for these times! “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Live simple. Live free. Live well. “My Haitian friends might also add: ‘Pran kouraj. An travay. Bondye beni nou.’ “Take courage. Let’s get to work! May God bless us.”

Julie Pomerleau Awarded Saint Vincent Alumni Scholarship

J

ulie Pomerleau of Jeannette, a junior psychology and theology major with a minor in sociology, was awarded the Saint Vincent Alumni Council Scholarship at the Father Gilbert J. Burke, O.S.B. Easter Ball at The Fred M. Rogers Center. The Saint Vincent Alumni Council Endowed Scholarship, established in 2001, is a $2,500 stipend awarded to a student who demonstrates academic merit and financial need. Pomerleau is a member of the Respect Life Club, Shakespeare Club, Saint Vincent Camerata, and a Campus Ministry cantor. The dean’s list student participated in the spring service trip to Brazil. She belongs to four honor societies. The daughter of Teri and Paul Pomerleau, she is a member of Saint Vincent Basilica Parish.

A

new course in Criminal Trial Evidence is being offered this fall for students who want to learn more about the rules and principles of evidence. “The course will feature considerable interaction with students,” said Bruce Antkowiak, professor and director of the new Saint Vincent College criminology program. “They will be called upon to play the role of juror, witness, advocate, judge and, perhaps, defendant as the various components of the trial are simulated. It is intended to be an intensely interactive experience meant to enhance their appreciation of the critical legal concepts underlying a part of the process in which due process has its most profound meaning. “The criminal trial is the centerpiece of the criminal process,” Antkowiak said. “How investigators investigate and how attorneys assess cases all revolve around the events they each know will take place in the courtroom when the jury is sworn. Indeed, those whose role in the system comes after the trial, the probation, parole or corrections officials also need to understand the trial and its impact on the people they supervise.” “The course will help set the roles of various players in the system in context. The best criminalist or CSI can have little impact on a case if they do not appreciate how the system treats so-called ‘experts’ and evaluates their testimony. The language spoken in the courtroom is not the language of the street and certainly not the scripted language of television. Understanding the real life discourse of the courtroom is the only way for all people connected with the system to appreciate their role in it.”

Two Theologians Participate In National Conference On ‘New Evangelization’

T

wo theologians were selected to participate in a national conference that focused on the task of reevangelizing our culture. Dr. Kimberly Baker, assistant professor of theology, and Dr. Patricia Sharbaugh, assistant professor of theology, were among a group of 50 theologians teaching at colleges and universities across the United States who were invited to participate in a conference, The Intellectual Tasks of the New Evangelization, which was being sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Doctrine in collaboration with the School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. According to materials distributed to the participants, both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have called for a new evangelization. The goal of the conference was to provide an occasion to build relationships between bishops and the next generation of theologians. “The hope is that we would go and listen and collaborate in discussions between ecclesial leaders and theologians. I think there is interest in looking at constructive ways we can work together. This was a starting point,” Dr. Baker said. Both teachers think participation in the

Dr. Kimberly Baker (left) and Dr. Patricia Sharbaugh

conference will benefit their students in the classroom. “Anytime you attend a conference it opens you to new ways of seeing things so even when you are doing the very same work you see it from a different perspective or through a different question,” Dr. Sharbaugh said. “It may give an awareness of how my teaching and the students here are all part of the bigger Church community and hopefully working together to form that Church and to participate in the new evangelization which involves re-evangelization of cultures that have become secular.” “I can imagine in certain classes issues related to the new evangelization will come to us more naturally because we have been in this conversation,” Dr. Baker added. “It will shape my perspective on what I am doing.” Keynote speaker was Daniel Cardinal DiNardo,

archbishop of GalvestonHouston. Other presenters included Archbishop J.A. DiNoia, O.P., of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments; Dr. John Cavadini of the University of Notre Dame; Dr. Ralph Del Colle of Marquette University; Msgr. Kevin W. Irwin and Fr. Frank Matera of The Catholic University of America; and Dr. Janet E. Smith, of the Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit. The closing Mass was celebrated by Donald Cardinal Wuerl, archbishop of Washington, D.C. and chair of the committee on doctrine. The conference was made possible by a grant from the Knights of Columbus. Dr. Baker earned a bachelor of arts in history with honor from Agnes Scott College, a master of divinity degree in pastoral ministry from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a

Ph.D. in theology from the University of Notre Dame. She has been a member of the Saint Vincent faculty since 2008. She teaches courses in historical theology and spirituality and coordinates ministry internships. In May, she accompanied students on a cross-cultural service trip to Calcutta, India. Dr. Sharbaugh earned a bachelor of arts degree in business economics with highest honors from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, a master of divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Duquesne University. A member of the Saint Vincent faculty for two years, she teaches courses in Biblical Theology and Systematic Theology. A member of Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, she and her husband, John, are residents of Ligonier.

Education Students Learning To Teach In Online, Virtual Classrooms

S

aint Vincent College Education Department has initiated a new program that will both prepare its student teachers for the growing presence of cyberschools and give all education students practical experience doing online tutoring with students in grades K to 12. The program has started this fall for seniors preparing to do their student teaching in the spring as well as for other undergraduates who are early in their preparation to be teachers, said David Gilbert, coordinator of online instructional support for education. “Online education is here and growing,” Gilbert said. “When we talk about online education or cyberschools, it basically refers to any educational instruction that occurs with the teacher and student at computers in separate locations outside of a traditional classroom setting.” The Saint Vincent program will initially serve two groups. The first is senior education majors who are enrolled in the Field Experience Pre-Student Teaching Practicum (ED400), preparing for student teaching in schools during the spring semester. These students will receive introductory training in the use of special software—Elluminate Live, part of the widely-used Blackboard educational software system—that allows users to set up highly interactive virtual classrooms where a teacher on one computer can communicate live with one or more students using audio content, slide presentations, whiteboards, online documents, and other multimedia content. Education professors and students can also access virtual rooms for teaching demonstrations, meetings and remote collaboration. Sessions can be recorded for sharing via the internet, allowing students and professors the opportunity to review sessions or provide feedback.

“Familiarity with this software and its capabilities will help our seniors be better prepared for teaching positions in either traditional classrooms or in cyberschools,” Gilbert said. “It will be an impressive asset for them when they are seeking teaching positions and interviewing for employment.” The second group that will participate in the program is undergraduate education majors who will be able to use the program to prepare to do online tutoring of students from kindergarten to 12th grade. “These students will be getting instruction with it in the Early Field Experience courses (ED101, 102, and 103),” Gilbert said. “Subsequently, they will be offering online tutoring services in a variety of subject areas to grade school, junior and senior high school students throughout Westmoreland County as well as in other areas of western Pennsylvania.” This instruction will take place in a special campus classroom in the Robert S. Carey Student Center that is equipped with Macintosh computers so that students can become comfortable with both the software and the accessories it utilizes such as headphones and digital tablets. Junior and senior high school students who seek online tutoring by the Saint Vincent students will include homeschooled students who may utilize it to supplement the instruction they receive at home. Gilbert will market the tutoring services which will be offered on a fee basis. “This is a unique program that takes advantage of the latest technology,” Gilbert said. “It is one-on-one tutoring which educational research has confirmed is most effective. We will be able to offer all of the benefits of personal tutoring but with the convenience of being able to do it at home or wherever you are.”

News Briefs HISTORY PROFESSOR AUTHORS BOOK ABOUT CHILDBIRTH IN CHINA

D

r. Tina Phillips Johnson, assistant professor of history at Saint Vincent College, is the author of a new book, Childbirth in Republican China: Delivering Modernity (1911-1949), published by Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman and Littlefield. Johnson also coordinates the activities of the James and Margaret Tseng Loe China Studies Center at Saint Vincent. The 268-page book is the study of a pivotal period in which traditional midwifery, marked by private, unregulated old-style midwives, was transformed into modern midwifery through the adoption of a highly medicalized and statesponsored birth model that is standard in urban China today. “In the 20th century, biomedical technologies altered the process of childbirth on virtually every level,” Johnson said. “What had been a matter of private interest, focusing on the family and lineage, became a national priority, 52

a symbol of the new citizen who would participate in the creation of a revitalized nation. This transformation of reproduction coalesces with the broader story of China’s 20th century revolutions, marked by an emphasis on science and modernity.” “The roles of the state and of western medical personnel were paramount in affecting these changes, but especially important are the intense social and cultural shifts that occurred simultaneously,” she continued. “The dominant themes of reproduction in 20th century China are characterized by expanding state involvement, shifting gender roles, escalating consumption patterns accompanying the commercialization of private lives, and the increasing medicalization of the birth process.” Johnson’s book-writing project was made possible by a scholar grant from the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange (USA). She is the first scholar in any field to date to examine in-depth the development of the midwifery profession in 20th century China.

B

rother Nathan M. Cochran, O.S.B., chair of the Department of Visual Arts at Saint Vincent College, has translated Marcel Uderzo and

Marc Bourgne’s book, titled, Karl I: Emperor of Peace, for publication by Ignatius Press/ Magnificat in France. The book is a 54-page graphic biography about Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria and King of Hungary, the last emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, who is being postulated for canonization. “It is beautifully drawn and illustrated from historic photographs by two of Europe’s most renowned graphic artists, Marcel Uderzo and Marc Bourgne. I translated it from German to English. The French and German editions have been best sellers,” Brother Nathan said. “The genius of Uderzo and Bourgne is that they have managed to tell a very

complex life story in word and picture in a detailed way that could not be told in the same number of pages of simple narrative,” he added. “Despite the concise nature of graphic biographies, this book manages to impart a great wealth of information about Blessed Karl, and is quite detailed in facts about his life. It should not be confused with a children’s book. “The book should be of interest to people who like reading about World War I, the end of the AustroHungarian Empire, central European history, saints and spirituality, and the canonization process of the Roman Catholic Church,” Brother Nathan said. “Besides being a detailed and accurate summary of Emperor Karl’s life and the end of World War I, it includes some anecdotal details from his family that have never before been published.” “It was an honor for me when Archduke Rudolf of Austria asked me to translate this work into English. He said that he was impressed with all of my work with the Emperor Karl League of Prayers. The French and German editions have been best sellers for three reasons: the story of Blessed Emperor Karl itself, the reputations of Marcel Uderzo and Marc Bourgne, and the outstanding artwork of the book.” Brother Nathan, a native of Marion, Ohio, studied vocal music at Bowling Green State University from 1975-1977, and received a bachelor of arts degree in religious studies from The Pontifical College Josephinum in 1980. He earned a master of divinity degree from Saint

Vincent Seminary in 1985, did graduate studies in art history at the University of Pittsburgh and earned a master of science in the theory, criticism and history of art architecture and design at the Pratt Institute. Fr. rene busy on publishing front Father Rene M. Kollar, O.S.B., professor of history and dean of the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts, has written one new book and edited two others, all published recently.

A Foreign and Wicked Institution? A Foreign and Wicked Institution? The Campaign Against Convents in Victorian England, appears in the Princeton Theological Monograph Series published by Pickwick Publications. This book is a collection of articles, previously published in America and abroad, and examines the deep suspicion of convent life in Victorian England. In addition to looking at anti-Catholicism and the fear of both Anglican and Catholic sisterhoods that

were established during the nineteenth century, this book explores the prejudice that existed against women in Victorian England who joined sisterhoods and worked in orphanages and in education, and who were committed to social work among the urban poor. Women, according to some of those critics, should remain passive in matters of religion. Nuns, however, did play an important role in many areas of life in 19th century England and faced hostility from many who felt threatened and challenged by members of female religious orders. The book, dedicated to the women students who pioneered coeducation at Saint Vincent College, details the accomplishments of these nuns and the opposition they overcame, serving as an example and encouragement to all those men and women who are committed to the Gospel. “This book is a must-read for a deeper understanding of the joys and pains of institutions devoted to God’s work,” said Father Eugene Hemrick, director of the Institute for the Renewal of the Priesthood and director

of Institutional Research at Washington Theological Union. “Kollar considers the legends, the stories, the lies and the works of Roman and Anglican sisterhoods,” commented reviewer T.M. McCoog, S.J., of Fordham University. “Neither blind to the faults nor ignorant of abuses, Kollar writes with an eye on the present in which a way of life is again judged by the faults of a few.” A Commitment to Truth A Commitment to Truth was the 19th lecture in the Wimmer Memorial Lecture Series (1947-1970) at Saint Vincent and delivered by noted Catholic historian, the late John Tracy Ellis (19051992). Given in 1965, the lecture has been reprinted by Archabbey Publications in conjunction with Wipf and Stock Publishers, Eugene, Oregon. Monsignor Ellis was known as a leading Roman Catholic historian whose criticism of the church’s colleges and universities in the United States moved them to achieve higher academic standards. Author

of more than a dozen books, he was a former managing editor of The Catholic Historical Review, a past president of the American Catholic Historical Association, and the first Catholic to be president of the American Society of Church History. Man’s Approach to God Man’s Approach to God was the fifh lecture in the Wimmer Memorial Lecture Series and was given in 1951 by Jacques Maritain. Maritain was one of the most influential figures in the Thomistic revival of the 20th century. Both in his personal life and in his prolific academic corpus, Maritain modeled the Church’s commitment to the interrelationship between faith and reason. So seriously did he take his intellectual commitments in his student years that, along with soonto-be wife Raïssa Oumansoff, he made a suicide pact that he would only break if he could find some meaning to life. This search ultimately led him to Catholicism. Maritain’s works reveal an active mind capable of applying his speculative thought to virtually any

s ummer / fa ll 2 0 1 1

News Briefs subject. Every one of his works was an exploration of reason and its limits, and of how faith completes the natural desire to know. His Wimmer lecture is a model specimen of this approach. Maritain’s Man’s Approach to God is a threepart lecture. In it, he seeks to explain how man comes to know God existentially, as well as how faith responds to and completes this search for meaning. This lecture grew out of his desire to show that every human being, and not just philosophers, can penetrate into the depths of reality, for all bear within themselves the indelible image of God and are equally called to the communion of “love for God and love for our brothers [as] a single love of charity. “ The introduction to this lecture was written by Dr. Michael P. Krom, a member of the Saint Vincent College faculty. Editorial assistance was provided by Isidore Matthew Minerd, C’06. All of the books are available on the Archabbey Publications webstore, www. stvincentstore.com, and are featured in the fall 2011, Archabbey Publications catalogue. Father Rene, a native of Hastings, received a bachelor of arts degree from Saint Vincent College in 1970, and a master of divinity degree from Saint Vincent Seminary in 1973. His graduate studies were in history at the University of Maryland where he received a master of arts degree in 1975, and a doctor of philosophy degree in 1981.

Dr. Vera Slezak Professor Emerita September 14, 1926—July 27, 2011

I

t is with deep sorrow that we share the news of the passing of Dr. Vera L. Slezak, 84, retired Saint Vincent College Professor of Czech, German and Russian, who died July 27, 2011. Born in Czechslovakia, she and her late husband of 60 years, Dr. Jaroslav Slezak, who died on December 18, 2010, taught thousands of Saint Vincent College students over three decades after emigrating to the United States. She was honored, together with her husband, with the presentation of an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree in December 2008. Vera Urbanovska Slezak was born on September 14, 1926 in Húlin, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), a daughter of the late Jan and Ludmila Urbanovsky, and grew up in the cities of Rýmařov, Český Těšín and Nový Jičín. She earned a bachelor of arts degree at Univerzita Palackého in Valašské Meziříčí and continued her graduate studies at Charles University in Prague. She completed her master of arts degree in German studies at Duquesne University. She initially taught elementary, intermediate and advanced German language classes at Saint Vincent and later added classes in Russian literature, grammar and culture. Slezak also taught classes in the Czech language. She had a reputation for being a demanding but caring teacher and her students affectionately referred to her as the “Fräu,” short for fräuline, the German equivalent of the title Mrs. Since retiring in 1991, she enjoyed reading at least two books a week and baking Eastern European cookies. For years she made more than 100 dozen cookies every Christmas that she gave to friends, neighbors and Benedictine monks. A member of the American Association of German Teachers, she served as a volunteer translator for Slovakian, German and Russian patients at Latrobe Area Hospital. She and her husband enjoyed traveling extensively in the United States and many foreign countries. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Slezaks were able to return to their Slovakian homeland in 1991 to visit family and friends. She was a courageous woman and dedicated wife who has provided loving and devoted support to her husband through his numerous health challenges. Memorial contributions may be made to Saint Vincent College for the Vera and Jaroslav Slezak Endowed Scholarship Fund, Office of Institutional Advancement, 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe, PA 15650-2690.

Message from

President Br. Norman w. hipps, o.s.b.

Greetings from a crisp autumn at Saint Vincent,

S

chool year beginnings are always filled with excitement, freshness and the energy of new and returning students, faculty and staff: this year over 500 new students and nine new faculty members. Some of the stories in this publication have a personal significance to me. The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is spectacular and the dedication this past June was a wonderful event that featured a very special family. The facility was influential in attracting 40% of our freshman class as Boyer School majors. The article on China highlights a longterm relationship that our Monastery has had in education dating back to the 1920s. I was fortunate to build on the foundations led by those early monks, our current Archabbot and Dean Gary Quinlivan. Our Archabbot has served on the Benedictine Commission on China since 1996. Dr. Quinlivan had a Fulbright Scholarship to teach at Shandong 22 years ago and has continued almost annually to do work in China. I had a wonderful visit to China in May and signed agreements with several universities there. Building these relationships and creating opportunities for faculty and student exchange is an integral part of our Strategic Plan. The article on Derry Area High School highlights a connection that I have enjoyed by working with their teachers in the Math Science Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania— one served as a Teacher Fellow who collaborated with me as we designed a new course in middle school mathematics. One of the students, valedictorian at Derry, now a senior biochemistry major, has been a work study student in our office for all four of her years at Saint Vincent. Finally, the honor roll of donors lists many good friends and generous contributors to our College. I am so grateful for your support. If you have not visited campus lately, please come see the fruits of your gifts. Thank you all very much.

family ties: collards favor SVC

im Collard, C’64, has always maintained that Saint Vincent’s commitment to the liberal arts, the total person, is what made the difference to him. And knowing that the college remains committed to the same traditions that he experienced as a student is why he continues to promote Saint Vincent to this day. “My husband has such wonderful memories of Saint Vincent,” said Patricia Collard of Buffalo. She has visited campus on a regular basis for more than a decade as all four of the couple’s children—Matthew, Mark, Norah, and Luke John—attended Saint Vincent College. When the time came for Collard children to make a decision about higher education, their father’s alma mater was on each sibling’s list of potential colleges, but each chose the institution he or she felt best suited his or her needs. The match for those needs just happened to be located in Latrobe.

Since the photo was taken, Luke Collard, Jr., was born in March. “From a school perspective, it was perfect—the size and closeness of the Saint Vincent community—I fell in love with that when I went down to visit,” said Mark Collard, C’98, now a managing principal of Odyssey Advisors, LLC, in Buffalo. “My older brother had been there for two years, and it almost felt like an extension of my high school, which was a Catholic, all boys school.” Contributing to that closeness, he said, “was the tradition, the religious aspect, the closeness of the community and the small class sizes that enabled us to get to know the teachers and faculty.” “Dad is always promoting Saint Vincent. He has a pennant in his office. But we selected it for its academic program. We were all good students, so we had options, and dad challenged us to find a strong, Catholic, liberal arts college that would sustain us in life. It’s hard for an eighteen-yearold to think of things that way, but he always challenged us to continue to learn.” “Dad never put any pressure on us to go there, and I applied to other schools. But I knew I was going to go

there. Saint Vincent really had that type of effect on me and it continues,” Mark said. That education helped him in his graduate studies as well—he has a master of business administration degree from the University of Buffalo. Matthew Collard, C’96, said his uncle Peter Collard, C’57, an attorney, was the first in the family to attend Saint Vincent, followed by his father, an orthopedic surgeon in Buffalo. But he wasn’t just following in his father’s footsteps. “I was impressed by the cultural connection when I first walked onto campus. I had done exchange programs in grammar school and high school, so the rich German history of the college was inspiring.” Matthew moved to Germany after he graduated with a degree in finance and minors in German and international business. He did advanced studies in that country before returning to the Buffalo area where he serves as a partner with Harold C. Brown and Company. “What stands out the most in my mind about my time at Saint Vincent is the amazing humanities education I received,” said Norah (Collard) Ferry, C’02. “My professors in the English department fostered my love for literature and composition. At the same time, their colleagues in the history, social sciences, religion, and philosophy departments stoked my broader intellectual curiosity. “I looked forward to so many of my classes and the discussions my professors encouraged,” she said. “On a more practical note, I felt well-prepared for graduate school (she earned a master’s degree in English) and later, the working world.” Norah, who is presently an editor and writer for a global consulting firm, McKinsey & Company, lives in Boston with her husband and daughter. “Although a number of my professors at Saint Vincent knew my brothers who had preceded me there,” she said, “I still felt that I had an opportunity to make my own way and pursue my own interests, which is something my parents always encouraged.” “As the youngest, I had to go there to bring the Collard name back to Saint Vincent,” Luke Collard, C’06, said. Like his brother Mark before him, he developed a friendship with Father Paul Taylor, O.S.B. “We used to work out a lot together in the weight room and we became very good friends. He presided at our wedding. Every time we go to Pittsburgh to visit friends, we stop by the school. He visits when he is in Buffalo. The Benedictine tie helps us stay in contact.” Luke, who played baseball for the Bearcats, works in sales, and continues to “pitch” for Saint Vincent. The Collard brothers, who all live in western New York, and their parents will host a regional alumni gathering, for the president, Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., at the Buffalo Club on October 17 to support Saint Vincent. Luke coaches football, brother Mark has coached in various basketball and hockey programs, and Matthew serves on the board of his high school, Saint Joseph, and is introducing Brother Norman to his school and other schools in the area. All, as their father did before them, think fondly of their time here, and want others to share the experience. “Our family has adopted Boniface Wimmer’s motto, ‘forward, always forward’,” Luke said. “The campus has evolved. It’s changed quite a bit,” Mark said. “I wish I could go back for another four years.”

The Collards have invested their lives in Saint Vincent. You, too, can help in these same ways through charitable giving, the encouragment of assistance, and through the identification of quality, prospective students.
