Bernadette Hamilton-Brady, director of theatre at St. Mary’s, directed the play. The story by Irish playwright Brian Friel centered on two teenagers planning their life together while studying for final exams on a hill overlooking their Irish town.

Zion Baptist Church, which was founded by former slaves and the site of a firebombing in 1974; Sunset Station and historically black St. Philip’s College. As the bus traveled between locations, participants heard from community leaders who played a role in the movement. St. Mary’s students, staff and faculty launched the celebration by participating in what has become one of the nation’s largest MLK marches. Subsequent activities included prayer sessions, public readings of King’s works, a St. Mary’s student-led children’s program at a local elementary school, lectures, films and discussion groups. Delegation Calls on State Lawmakers A 25-member delegation from St. Mary’s, comprised of University administrators, faculty, staff and students, traveled to Austin in January to thank legislators for their support, and encourage continued funding, of the Texas Tuition Equalization Grant Program. More than 1,100 St. Mary’s students receive some $2 million each year in TEG funding. St. Mary’s hosted legislators to a breakfast in the Lt. Governor’s Reception Room in the Capitol Building before delegation members dispersed to meet with senators and representatives from Bexar County and others who populate the House and Senate’s higher education and appropriations committees. In February, a group of St. Mary’s students attended Student Day at the Capitol to visit with legislators and express their gratitude to all who support TEG.

Cotrell, Ph.D., President For the past year and a half, I have reported to you a demanding yet exciting process that has been unfolding at St. Mary’s University. A document mapping our future began taking shape in May 2005 after consultations with our many stakeholders—Marianists, trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, students and alumni. From those conversations with some 500 participants, ideas began to emerge that would address St. Mary’s strengths and challenges while creating the direction of the University for the future. We considered sacrosanct continuing the legacy of providing a superior Catholic liberal arts education in the Marianist tradition. We agreed that St. Mary’s will remain an institution of choice if we continue to provide excellent academic preparation, pursue innovative teaching, maintain current information technology, and encourage a meaningful student life. You may recall that two years ago the Board of Trustees and University community reviewed and updated our Mission statement (which can be found on the inside front cover of this and all issues of the Gold & Blue). That statement served as our reference point while developing our vision for St. Mary’s future which, in turn, was our guidepost for writing Vision 2012, our five-year strategic plan. Vision The Promise St. Mary’s University will excel in developing graduates who, inspired by faith, are informed community builders who seek understanding and wisdom for the common good of society and who are prepared to lead extraordinary lives. American universities today are preparing the next generation of leaders. Universities are responsible for equipping graduates with the skills they need to be successful, but St. Mary’s University, as a contemporary Catholic and Marianist institution, is called upon to do much more. We aspire to expand and integrate the educational experience so that our graduates possess not only the superior academic tools necessary to impact society, but also the desire to reach their full potential as human beings, with a sound religious and ethical foundation and a passion to make a positive difference in their world. That aspiration is our promise. St. Mary’s will excel in teaching and scholarship that is transformational, educating the whole person in and through community. At the core of a St. Mary’s education will be innovative curricular and co-curricular learning that evidences the integration of the liberal arts and professional studies. St. Mary’s, grounded in Catholic faith and Marianist tradition, will excel as a leading university in the United States while manifesting a distinctive international educational presence that will further advance the University throughout the Americas and beyond. 8 Gold&Blue Vision 2012 Goal I: Nurture a vibrant Catholic and Marianist culture St. Mary’s University will elevate and reinforce its Catholic and Marianist identity, celebrating within the University community and beyond the Mission and core values that have successfully guided us in the past and that provide direction and a framework for planning and progress today and for the future. Background To maintain our identity, there must be a shared stewardship between the laity and professed and lay Marianists, and a broad understanding and acceptance among all groups concerning our mission and identity. For our identity to remain vibrant, we must direct our efforts with deliberation in several areas. St. Mary’s will expand the internationalization initiatives of the last decade by establishing effective connections with the Society of Mary worldwide and enriching partnerships with our sister institutions. St. Mary’s will establish a Center for Catholic Studies to serve as a resource hub for discussion and deliberation of issues that may define the future Catholic Church. St. Mary’s will be imaginative and courageous in the steps it takes to maintain its Catholic identity. This goal can be achieved through various initiatives, including hiring for Mission, clarifying the calling and function of the Marianist Educational Associates program, and more effectively communicating stories, symbols and rituals that make us distinctly Catholic. As a Marianist university, St. Mary’s will profoundly shape the education of whole persons through the purposeful formation of academic community, religious community and community leadership that will empower our graduates to positively influence history. Community leaves its mark on the institutional culture of St. Mary’s, and we will intentionally nurture ways to ensure that a sense of community and family spirit perseveres on our campus. At Marianist universities, we educate the whole person by educating for practical reason and wisdom that embodies a critical mind with a compassionate heart. We want our graduates to be people who can make a real difference in the world by linking the outstanding academic preparation they have received at St. Mary’s to service and leadership in their communities. We want our graduates to be a transforming presence in the world. Initiatives A. Implement orientation and formation strategies for faculty, staff and members of the Board B. Inspire and foster members of the St. Mary’s community to live more fully and actively the Marianist charism C. Adopt Marianist educational outcomes in curricular and co-curricular learning D. Assure that hiring for Mission is part of the University’s procedures and practices E. Frame the University’s identity and educational outcomes in innovative and effective messages, language and images Vision 2012 Gold&Blue 9 Goal II: Advance academic quality and innovation St. Mary’s University will strengthen and enhance academic excellence in the core curriculum and across undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs, while fostering outstanding teaching and scholarship and enhancing the cocurricular experience for all students. Enhancing the quality of the student body and sustaining realistic growth Background Enhancing the quality of the University’s student body at the undergraduate and graduate levels is an essential part of a successful future for St. Mary’s. The University’s best opportunity for attaining an increase exists with the number of entering first-time freshmen. Class rank and standardized test scores are nationally recognized standards of measurement, and increases in both measures are important indicators of student potential and of an increase in the quality of the undergraduate student body. Another consideration of student body quality is diversity. St. Mary’s will recruit a balance of students from across races and ethnicities (and genders), providing a living and learning experience that allows for crosscultural dialogue and understanding. As federal and state aid sources decline, it is increasingly important to ensure a distribution of students across all socioeconomic levels, so that a St. Mary’s education remains accessible to all who are qualified to attend. No increased enrollment growth in the School of Law is foreseen, but opening the law school to part-time students in 2007 will have the potential of changing the student profile of those admitted to the School of Law. To increase enrollment in the Graduate School, one potentially rich opportunity is recruitment of qualified international students from China, India and other global regions in the fields of business and the sciences. Initiatives A. Increase the quality, size and composition of undergraduate, graduate and international student bodies Student learning and teaching excellence Background One of the chief attributes of private colleges and universities is the innovative and effective teaching produced by small student-faculty ratios. Higher student retention, graduation, and career success are achievable in a small university context. Outstanding teaching requires an ongoing research agenda for the faculty. Institutions that promote excellence in teaching recognize the value of research in remaining current in an academic discipline. Furthermore, undergraduate students gain valuable insight and experience through active participation in research projects. Institutional reputation and success are also based on curricular design and content that is Mission centered, up to date in disciplinary content, and relevant to career preparation. Hence, the faculty in each of the five schools will be called upon to examine their curricular offerings regularly. Initiatives B. Advance undergraduate student learning through teaching excellence and a dynamic curriculum C. Advance law and graduate programs Quality campus environment Background St. Mary’s University sees as vital the quality of all aspects of campus life that support excellent academic education. When planning for construction of future residence halls, decision makers will consider national residential life professional standards, and facilities will include features that result in a more favorable residential environment and greatly affect the overall student experience. Initiatives D. Enhance the quality of the campus environment 10 Gold&Blue Vision 2012 Studies have long heralded the connection between a high degree of campus involvement and higher retention and graduation rates. Connecting curricular and cocurricular experiences and outcomes is key to overall student success and adds meaning and excitement for students as they prepare for their fields of study and eventual careers. Goal III: Extend boundaries St. Mary’s University will reach out to build partnerships, programs and relationships that create learning, leadership and service opportunities for students in local, national, and international settings, and design plans to engage alumni in lifelong learning and connectedness. Background St. Mary’s location and history in San Antonio position us to provide leadership in international education in the Western Hemisphere. There already exist numerous programs that help our students learn and serve. Reaching far beyond our immediate geographic boundaries, more effective connections will be established with the Society of Mary as an active presence on all continents. Also, we will collaborate with those institutions abroad with which partnership agreements exist, and with our sister institutions, to broaden and strengthen programs that promote internationalization. Broadening our program boundaries will help students develop as compassionate leaders who strive to improve the human condition everywhere. Because St. Mary’s is located in an older area whose neighborhoods and commercial spaces are in transition, it is critical that we become more actively involved in community outreach, development and improvement. This can be accomplished by building or expanding on activities already being conducted by our students, faculty and staff. We will also develop partnerships with San Antonioarea educational and research institutions, which will provide program enrichment for students who seek internship and externship opportunities. St. Mary’s University will extend alumni boundaries beyond fund raising to include opportunities that are both meaningful to the alumni and valuable to the institution. Alumni will be invited to more actively participate at St. Mary’s to engage them in lifelong learning and connectedness, and to further advance St. Mary’s international presence. Parents will be encouraged to play a more active role in St. Mary’s programs and activities, and to participate in the St. Mary’s educational experience. The formation of the new Parent Association is an excellent springboard for expanded involvement. St. Mary’s will strengthen its relationship and collaboration with the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Catholic schools, and other local religious bodies. Initiatives A. Integrate international education across schools, disciplines, courses and programs B. Strengthen alumni affiliation and relations with the University C. Partner with Holy Rosary Parish to create innovative initiatives that focus on the relationship between the University, Church and neighborhood D. Lead neighborhood revitalization and commercial transformation efforts by providing programs in the arts, literature and other disciplines and through intentional service learning experiences Vision 2012 Gold&Blue 11 Goal IV: Assure viability St. Mary’s University will attain and grow resources necessary to ensure a secure financial future, invest in new opportunities, and attract and retain a quality student body through collaboration and building a tradition of giving among students, alumni and friends. Background With St. Mary’s reliance on tuition and fees approaching 70 percent of the operating budget, it is only through increased fund raising that we can maintain our position as an educational institution of the highest academic caliber. It is imperative that a culture of giving be developed and nurtured among our many constituencies. To continue to attract a diverse student body, tuition increases must be regulated and reasonable. The financial health of an institution of higher learning can be directly linked to the resources its endowment provides each student. St. Mary’s University must raise that per-student endowment income available for student scholarships to compensate for reductions in federal and state aid. Similarly, increasing or generating new endowments for specific schools, programs, and professorships will help ensure and advance academic excellence. Collaboration with existing support organizations can help to more effectively reach alumni groups as we seek to increase alumni giving. Concurrently, we need to establish support organizations that will affiliate with the University and assist us in developing and generating support. St. Mary’s University will be diligent in containing cost drivers to assure good stewardship and budgetary efficiency. Campus-wide accountability and responsibility in developing budgets and prioritizing spending are critical to accomplishing our goals. Initiatives A. Extend the reach of fund raising B. Increase the endowment and contributions to the annual fund C. Contain cost drivers to assure good stewardship and budgetary efficiency 12 Gold&Blue Vision 2012 Goal V: Enhance facilities and technology St. Mary’s University will support and improve the educational experience of its students with innovative programming, modern facilities, and current and complementary communications and technology, all of which form the foundation for a culture of excellence. Background Excellence in education goes far beyond quality teaching and scholarship; it incorporates the entire university campus and its environs. The Board-approved Facilities Master Plan, written and adopted in 2004, has been carefully and intentionally crafted to integrate our many learning communities— academics, arts and worship, residential living and athletics—so that our students benefit from our holistic approach to the educational experience. The Plan takes St. Mary’s through the first quarter of this century and is divided into two phases. Currently underway is the renovation of St. Louis Hall, St. Mary’s signature building, which requires expanding the physical plant capabilities, a necessity for future construction. During Vision 2012, the primary Phase I goal is renovation and construction of a complex for the School of Science, Engineering and Technology (SET). Completion of the proposed 90,000-square- foot, $25 million SET building will provide a state-of-the-art facility that will put St. Mary’s at the forefront of education in health sciences, technology and research. By continuing to grow partnerships with area health-care and technological institutions, we can impact the national shortage of engineers, computer scientists and health care specialists. To effectively provide a superior educational experience for our students, St. Mary’s University will implement a new enterprise software system that will enhance our productivity while streamlining many work routines and processes. St. Mary’s will ensure technology fluency for all faculty, staff and students through ongoing training programs. St. Mary’s will strive to ensure that technology resources remain current. Great opportunities exist for St. Mary’s to improve its outreach and relationships by offering more technologyrelated services. Initiatives A. Advance University community through campus design and aesthetics B. Advance University community through technology innovation Implementing Vision 2012 Achieving Vision 2012 is no small task. It presents both a challenge and a responsibility for the entire campus community, requiring the dedication, commitment and creativity of everyone. All of us will be called to continuous improvement, good stewardship of resources and successful outcomes. St. Mary’s will be recognized for excellence and realize its vision of educating women and men who make a real difference in the world by linking what they have learned to service and leadership. Our graduates will be a transforming presence in the world. The entire text of Vision 2012 is available at www.stmarytx.edu/vision2012. Vision 2012 Gold&Blue 13 IN SERVICE TO COUNTRY Alumni make their mark on the world through the Foreign Service by Gina Farrell, Director of Media Relations The footprints of serviceminded St. Mary’s alumni can be found all over the world, including in Honduras, Belarus, Mexico, Costa Rica, Manila, Australia, England and Romania, just to name a few. Point anywhere on a globe and you won’t be more than a few fingertips away from a place a St. Mary’s graduate has served in the U.S. Foreign Service. While the total number of alumni who have served is difficult to gauge, today there are more than 20 St. Mary’s alumni active in the diplomatic corps – enough to get the attention of even the highest ranks of the service’s leadership. Now-retired Ambassador W. Robert Pearson visited San Antonio in 2005 as director of the U.S. Foreign Service. During that visit, he praised St. Mary’s graduates for their diplomatic service, and even today Pearson recognizes the contributions St. Mary’s alumni make as diplomats. “I recall that St. Mary’s had a unique record of success for the Foreign Service in terms of the numbers [compared to] the student body,” Pearson wrote in a recent e- mail. “I expressed my appreciation to the [University] president for the long and distinguished record of service by St. Mary’s graduates to the Foreign Service of the United States and our commitment to continue to work closely with St. Mary’s as we increased the diversity of the Foreign Service.” The Foreign Service is the diplomatic arm of the U.S. State Department, and its officers advocate American foreign policy, protect American citizens and assist American business worldwide. It’s a challenging and rewarding call that many St. Mary’s graduates have felt drawn to answer. ‘Room at the Table’ Larry Hufford, Ph.D., a professor in the graduate international relations program, has seen students’ interest and success in the Foreign Service increase over the years. “St. Mary’s has always been a university that encourages public service, so we have students who really have that as one of their goals,” Hufford said. But having the right people on campus to give students a full picture of their options is where having retired U.S. Ambassador Eugene Scassa has made a difference. Scassa retired from the Foreign Service in 1997 and recently returned to the University as international scholar-in-residence. A former ambassador to Belize, Scassa had previously served as a State Department diplomat-in-residence at St. Mary’s. During that time, he made a habit of inviting high-level Foreign Service officers to campus to lecture and interact with students interested in diplomatic careers. “The Foreign Service looks for people of good character who are trustworthy and have a sense of “St. Mary’s has always been a university that encourages public service, so we have students who really have that as one of their goals.” 14 Gold&Blue www.stmarytx.edu adventure, so it’s all about letting the young people learn of the opportunities. The role we play is to let them know what is possible,” he said. If Scassa sounds a bit like a recruiter, in a way he is. In fact, many of the recent St. Mary’s alumni serving in the Foreign Service attribute their decision directly to Scassa’s influence. And although many have studied international relations, not all take that path. “We try to encourage everyone and all majors that there is room at the table. Everyone can do some things well; many people can do many things well.” Anne Ohlrich (J.D. ’98) was in her third year at St. Mary’s School of Law when she first met Scassa and he encouraged her to consider foreign service. Just a few months later, Ohlrich took the bar exam and the Foreign Service written exam within days of each other, passing both. By April 1999, Ohlrich and her family were on their way to London for her first diplomatic assignment. Ohlrich also was assigned to Brazil, Washington, D.C., and Mexico during her seven years in the Foreign Service. In 2005, she joined the St. Mary’s faculty as a visiting professor teaching in the graduate international relations program, adding another direct link between public service, the Foreign Service and St. Mary’s students. Sense of Community, Adventure Speaking from the perspective of both a former Foreign Service officer and a current faculty member, Ohlrich said that service-mindedness is the common thread among those who choose the diplomatic corps. “Being in the Foreign Service is all about helping Americans overseas. A lot of things that St. Mary’s stands for – that connection, that sense of community and service – are embodied in the Foreign Service. It may sound cliché, but St. Mary’s is really a breeding ground for the Foreign Service,” she said. The University’s strong emphasis on internationalization and studying abroad are factors as well, Ohlrich pointed out. “There is a real sense of adventure that St. Mary’s encourages. It is not just about service to our community but about developing a broader sense of community.” Wanting to join is not enough to open the doors to the State Department, and the process of applying is a formidable task. The Anne Ohlrich (J.D. ’98) and her entire staff – both American and Mexican – of the non-immigrant visa section of the U.S. Embassy in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, pose for a photo. Ohlrich also served in London, Washington D.C., and Brazil. Foreign Service exam, which includes both written and oral phases, is extremely challenging, difficult to study for, and takes stock of characteristics such as dedication, leadership skills, critical-thinking abilities, perceptiveness and creativity. Those who pursue a career in the diplomatic corps must be ready for travel virtually anywhere in the world, and often they must learn a new language before their first mission. It is a rewarding but challenging profession, with most assignments overseas and transfers to new posts every few years. Caron De Mars (M.B.A. ’94), who is assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Manila, plants trees in a deforested area of the Philippines as part of her role on the Philippine Tropic Forest Conversation Foundation. De Mars said her time as a student at St. Mary’s helped prepare her for her many roles as a foreign service officer. spring 2007 Gold&Blue 15 While stationed in Recife, Brazil, Anne Ohlrich (J.D. ’98) and her daughter Maggie enjoy snorkeling in Porto de Galinhas. Ohlrich grew up a member of a military family, so she was familiar with the traveling lifestyle. Nancy Szalwinski (M.A. ’95), then a consular officer at the U.S. Embassy in Minsk, Belarus, stands with a Belarusian ceremonial guard during a Fourth of July celebration at the embassy in 2003. “The most effective diplomatic efforts are people-to-people,” she said. The Foundation for Success Benjamin A. Montañez attended St. Mary’s for two years before winning the prestigious Woodrow Wilson Foreign Affairs Fellowship (now the Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship) and transferring to Georgetown University. He graduated from Georgetown in 2002 and went on to earn graduate degrees from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the University of St. Andrew’s School of Management in Scotland. He has degrees from three world-renowned institutions, but credits St. Mary’s with setting the course for his success. “My time at St. Mary’s was the first time I was in an environment with other academically minded individuals. My professors were willing to spend time with me, and I had the opportunity to open up and get involved in student government and other clubs and organizations. I would have never made it at Georgetown if I hadn’t gone to St. Mary’s first,” Montañez said. Today, Montañez is a political/ economic officer in the American “Inevitably, the Marianist values played a role, particularly the ever-present emphasis on service. Foreign Service officers certainly don’t make a fortune, but they play a vital role as public servants to our country.” 16 Gold&Blue www.stmarytx.edu Consulate General in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “Each day in the Foreign Service really is different. I work many hours, but I am having fun and learning a lot,” he said. John Moor (B.A. ’71, M.S. ’75) felt the call to the Foreign Service soon after the terror attacks of Sept. 11. “I was motivated by 9/11 and wanted to contribute in some way,” said Moor, who is on his first overseas assignment in Bucharest, Romania, as a political officer and human rights specialist. Moor said St. Mary’s has given him a solid foundation for his work. “I received an excellent education at St. Mary’s. I didn’t realize just how good until I came up against graduates from other schools like UC Berkeley, USC, Harvard and Yale, and found I competed well against them.” Caron De Mars (M.B.A. ’94) had a successful career as a mid-level manager at USAA when she got the idea that the Foreign Service might be a good fit for her. Today, she is an economic officer in Manila, Philippines, working on issues related to environment, science and technology, and every day is different. One week, she was organizing a broadband seminar for Filipino telecom policymakers. The next week, she was finalizing an oil spill remediation conference sponsored by National Geographic. “I love living abroad and learning about new cultures,” said De Mars, who counts Ambassador Scassa among her mentors. “I am in constant contact with the most amazing people on the planet.” A Message of Service Nancy Szalwinski (M.A. ’95) was the evening studies director at St. Mary’s when she first became interested in the Foreign Service. She is now a cultural affairs officer at the U.S. Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica, and has previously been assigned to Minsk, Belarus, and Canberra, Australia. She credits both Ambassador Scassa and the Marianist tradition of service with contributing to her success. “I believe in the biblical admonition that much is expected from those to whom much has been given. That message of service was part of the fabric of daily life at St. Mary’s and continues to be central to my work as a diplomat,” Szalwinski said. In keeping with that philosophy, Szalwinski uses her down time to get involved in the community in which she lives through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. “As I learned in the harsh climate of Belarus as well as the temperate climates of Australia and Costa Rica, the most effective diplomatic efforts are people-topeople.” Matthew Jones graduated in December with a degree in international relations and hopes to follow the career path of the others who have joined the Foreign Service. Jones is going through the arduous application process now, and feels his experience – educational and spiritual – at St. Mary’s has prepared him well for the challenge. He credits his professors, including Hufford and the Rev. Norbert Brockman, S.M., Ph.D., with challenging and supporting him, but said it’s the Marianist influence that really made the difference. “Inevitably, the Marianist values played a role, particularly the everpresent emphasis on service. Foreign Service officers certainly don’t make a fortune, but they play a vital role as public servants to our country.” Jones said. “I need to feel that my work serves a higher purpose; that what I’m doing in my life affects meaningful, positive change in this world.” n E L B A T O N S S A L C Freshman Recognized by Oprah Winfrey Jean Choo One day after Jean Choo turned 18, the caller ID on her phone read H-AR-P-O but she assumed it was another credit card solicitor. Luckily, her younger brother picked up the phone. The person on the other end was a representative of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” who was calling to let Choo know that she had won Winfrey’s National High School Essay Contest. The topic of the essay was: “Why is Elie Wiesel’s book, Night, relevant today?” Choo had read the book a few years earlier and was immediately interested in the essay contest when her high school English teacher announced the contest details in class. Choo, a biochemistry major and Honors Program scholar at St. Mary’s, said she entered the contest because she had a true concern for the Holocaust and victims of genocide, which is the subject of many of her reading choices. “(The book) makes you realize how valuable human life is,” said Choo, who 2006.

She won a $5,000 scholarship from AT&T, and Winfrey matched it. Night, an Oprah’s Book Club selection, is a novel based on Elie Wiesel’s time spent in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Plagued by guilt for surviving, the author (pictured with Winfrey and Choo) attempts to answer why God let the Holocaust happen and remind people of the terrible things that happened in the “death” camps so they will never forget. “In an instant people lost everything they had,” Choo said. “It is something not to be forgotten, and people too often forget.” Like Wiesel, Choo and her family immigrated to the United States in search of a better life. Choo, originally from South Korea, moved to El Paso when she was in the third grade. She, too, believes the memory of the Holocaust should live on and serve to prevent such future occurrences. “I want to be remembered for humanitarian causes. Right now, I donate money, but money is small. I want to physically be there.” In the future, Choo plans on working with Doctors Without Borders, a medical program that delivers aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, disasters and/or exclusion from health care. Choo’s compassion toward others and the cause to end all genocides will continue to blossom at St. Mary’s where community service and the wellbeing of others are important for the growth of future leaders. by Valerie R.

Steve Toland, J.D., E L T B A Alum’s Lifelong Service Generates Scholarship Albert Rogers, M.D. (CL ’37) C L A S S N O Albert Rogers knows what it means to serve—whether it is his patients or his country. To fulfill a lifelong promise to give back to the community, Rogers turned his service efforts toward his alma mater. Rogers entered St. Mary’s University in the 1930s, along with his two brothers, Edgar and Will, receiving scholarships as musicians at St. Mary’s where they played in the band and orchestra. The Rogers brothers may have chosen St. Mary’s because it was the one place they could afford to go. But it turned out to be one of the best decisions they made, Rogers said. At St. Mary’s, he took chemistry classes from Brother Edward Collignon, S.M., someone who had “all the qualities of a great man,” according to Rogers. Collignon taught all of the chemistry classes at St. Mary’s at the time. “He had a knack for teaching the subject in a way that helped you retain the knowledge,” he said. Name Collignon’s outstanding teaching skills and encouragement motivated Rogers to apply to medical school after only three years at St. Mary’s. He was accepted at Baylor Medical School even though he did not have a degree from St. Mary’s. He only lacks one civics course necessary to complete his bachelor’s degree. Throughout the years, Rogers never forgot the man who played such an important role in his life. It was Collignon who inspired Rogers to be a dedicated doctor and serviceman. After medical school, Rogers entered the Army and served during World War II in Africa, Italy, and France. It was while in France that Rogers earned the Bronze Star for organizing the first blood bank used by the U.S. Army. He was responsible for creating a system for drawing blood and distributing it to frontline hospitals at a time when 5,000 units of blood was needed each week. In 2002, Rogers fulfilled a commitment he made to himself many years ago—to give back to St. Mary’s. That year, he established the Brother Edward Collignon Memorial Scholarship in Biochemistry. Not only does the scholarship benefit current St. Mary’s students, it serves as a permanent memorial to a man who meant so much to Rogers and other students. Rogers describes Collignon as “one of the best educators I have ever known.” Rogers hopes the scholarship will inspire student recipients to serve their community and country in similar ways.

Vision 2012 and the Future We had much to be thankful for last year, and now the future beckons with the completion of a new five-year strategic plan. This past year was spent consulting our many stakeholders, resulting in Vision 2012, our plan for the future that will invigorate St. Mary’s and strengthen its heritage as an academically outstanding Catholic and Marianist liberal arts institution. It is through your kind efforts that the culture of excellence continues to proudly distinguish our University. Last year was a phenomenal time in St. Mary’s history, beginning with an unprecedented $25 million gift from founder of Valero Energy Corp. Bill Greehey to endow the business school and concluding with the construction of the Barrett Memorial Bell Tower, which stands as a beacon of excellence, pride and tradition on campus. We appreciate the continued commitment to scholarships of all of our alumni and friends whose contributions ensure that the St. Mary’s experience remains affordable and accessible to today’s students and future generations. Shaping Student Success Your kind support provides students with scholarship opportunities and allows the University to strengthen the academic quality that places St. Mary’s at the forefront of higher education. Undergraduate research continues to thrive with the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and Creative Activities Exhibition, which showcased more than 180 projects in the sciences and liberal arts last year, and also generated similar efforts in the Graduate School. The Graduate School and the School of Law began developing innovative opportunities for students to reach their educational goals. The Graduate School now offers an accelerated program that combines bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for qualified students who want to complete two degrees simultaneously. The law school’s evening program, which will start this coming fall, serves our community by providing accessibility to legal education to those who cannot attend day classes. 22 Gold&Blue www.stmarytx.edu We are committed to offering educational programs that contribute to and enrich our community, our state, our nation and the world. Last fall a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente of Guadalajara, Mexico, to promote academic connections and enrich cultural understanding between our country and Mexico. Other agreements are being planned with universities in Asia and Europe to bring more international students to campus. These are some of the new initiatives that distinguish St. Mary’s. Because of your support, students will continue to be well-prepared for their future careers in an increasingly interdependent world. Living the Legacy Last year, St. Mary’s made further strides to foster its legacy of success. In March 2006, the naming of the Bill Greehey School of Business honored Greehey’s extraordinary leadership in the global business community and signaled the school’s unprecedented transformation of business education in San Antonio and beyond. During the year, an outpouring of goodwill came forth for a new high-tech courtroom. Made possible by a lead gift from the AT&T Foundation and other foundation and donor support, the courtroom is a beautifully designed facility with 21st century technology components and outreach. The St. Louis Hall Renovation Project to revitalize St. Mary’s original building—the hallmark of our noble institution—has gained momentum and we anxiously await its completion. With your faithful leadership, we have a very bright future. Thank you again for everything you do for St. Mary’s University. Charles L. Cotrell, Ph.D. Honor Roll of Donors June 1, 2005 – May 31, 2006 The 1852 Society The 1852 Society, established in 1993, recognizes those individuals who have made the University a beneficiary through a will, charitable trust, a gift annuity or a life insurance policy. ±Mary Dorothy Barr Nicholas Barron Anonymous J.

Our Lord…told us that we ‘should not hide our light under a bushel but to put it on a stand for all to see.’ This tower is there for all to see and is a reminder that we are to be like that—to show the world the light of our good conduct. For some people, our conduct will be the only Gospel they will ever read. We thank the Barrett family—and other donors—for this wonderful gift to our campus. And we are appreciative that it is a gift that not only is beautiful to behold and practical in use, but a gift which, for those who can read them, contains the symbols of so many of our spiritual and religious values. —The Rev.

On Jan. 27, almost 300 students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni—the largest group ever—worked side by side to serve the needs of our campus and surrounding neighborhood. Alumni were extended a special invitation to participate this year. Led by St. Mary’s University Alumni Association President Ed Boyle (B.B.A. ’71), graduates joined in service efforts, including brush pick-up, graffiti cleanup, painting, visiting the elderly and more. Volunteers were easily identified by their ‘God’s Handiwork’ T-shirts generously donated by Robby and Tami Burge, the proud parents of daughter Casey, a freshman from Victoria. Continuing the Heritage is sponsored by the Service Learning Center and the Marianist Leadership Program. St. Mary’s partnered closely with both nearby Holy Rosary Parish and the University Park Neighborhood Association to identify areas most in need of service.
