HOMECOMING 2013 Friday, Oct. 11 ~ 6 p.m. Lutheran Heritage Room Howard Miller Student Center

The Thiel College Alumni Association is proud of the ways in which Thiel alumni have contributed to their professions, their communities and their alma mater. The awards given each year at Homecoming single out those alumni who have distinguished themselves in three ways: Distinguished Alumni are nominated by their fellow alumni and approved for recognition by the Alumni Association Board of Directors for outstanding contributions to their professions. Service to Thiel award winners are nominated by alumni and college personnel and approved for recognition by the Alumni Association Board of Directors for their loyalty, service and devotion to Thiel College. Young Alumni award winners must have received their degree from Thiel College within the past 10 years. They are nominated by the faculty and approved by the Alumni Association Board of Directors for their potential for future accomplishments in their professions and in their service to the College.

A list of those who have received these awards since their inception is included at the end of this program.

Distinguished Alumni Award

MICHAEL A. LANCIOTTI ’78 Michael Lanciotti Jr. ’78 was described in Management Today as a “very strong leader and very business savvy…the epitome of a CEO.” That’s a very hard-earned compliment to a man who has spent his professional career working through the corporate ranks of industrial manufacturing companies. Currently, Mike is the CEO of Renegade Custom Coaches and Trailers in Bristol, Ind., and oversees two 110,000-squarefoot manufacturing and assembly plants and a 15,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art fabrication shop. Renegade produces motor coaches, trailers and specialty vehicles in thousands of custom options. In just fifteen years, Renegade grew from eight employees to more than 150 and has custom-built more than 2,000 motorhomes and 1,500 trailers. In 2013, Renegade forecasts sales in excess of $55 million. Mike has been Renegade’s CEO since 2008. For nine years prior to joining Renegade, Mike was the President and Chief Operating Officer of Lock Joint Tube, manufacturers of mechanical and structural grade steel tubing in four plants located in Indiana, Texas and Tennessee with more than 700 employees and $150 million in yearly sales. From 1994 to 2001, he served as Vice President at Jackson Tube Service, another welded steel tube manufacturer in Piqua, Ohio. He held the title of Controller and Chief Financial Officer of Miami Industries, now known as Copperweld Miami Division for six years, and before that he worked as treasurer/controller and corporate accounting manager for two rubber manufacturers. It’s almost as if Mike was learning the ins and outs of building RVs right from the beginning, starting with the tires! While a student at Thiel, Mike was a member of Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, the wrestling team, the newsletter committee and a library employee. After graduating Thiel with a degree in accounting, he went on to earn his executive M.B.A. from Baldwin Wallace College in 1985 with a 4.0 GPA. Mike holds professional memberships in the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers and the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. He and wife, Frances, live in Mishawaka, Ind., where Mike has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce and YMCA Boards.

Distinguished Alumni Award

JOHN E. “JACK” MARTIN ’75 Currently the owner and supervisor of Dusckas-Martin Funeral Homes and Crematory, Inc., in Erie, Pa., John “Jack” Martin ’75 spent the early part of his career in several diverse professions. After graduating from Thiel with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and education, he became a teacher and coach for Millcreek Township School District where he was named Teacher of the Year in 1985. During that time, Jack earned a Master of Science Degree in counselor education from Gannon University. From 1986 to 1989 he spent a very successful stint as Thiel’s Alumni Director improving the class agent program, strengthening the Parent Association and encouraging membership to the Society of 1866. His next professional role was Director of Development at Gannon University. During his five-year tenure at Gannon, Jack raised nearly $9 million for the institution’s capital campaign. While he was travelling the country fundraising for his second alma mater, he earned an Ed.D. in higher education administration from the University of Akron and then accepted the position of Vice President for Advancement at Edinboro University. Throughout Jack’s professional career he also worked part-time at the familyowned funeral home in Erie, Pa. Eventually, after having grown weary of travel, Jack attended the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science and earned an associate’s degree in mortuary technology and graduated summa cum laude in 1996. He served as funeral director from 1997-2001 and has been supervisor/ director of Dusckas-Martin Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. since 2002. In 2012, Jack was named one of four nominees for “National Funeral Director” in American Funeral Director Magazine. He serves on many boards in the Erie area and this year was a finalist for the Erie Commitment Award, rising above hundreds of nominees. Jack is also an adjunct public speaking instructor at Gannon University. As a student at Thiel College, Jack was a member of The Thiel Choir and Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He was also one of the first disk-jockeys on WGRP (now WXTC)–the Thiel radio station—and notably, the first-ever to play Lynard Skynard’s “Free Bird.” Jack and his wife, Karen, live in Erie, Pa., and have two adult sons, Andrew and Alexander. Jack’s brother, Dr. David Martin ’71, is a former member of the Thiel College Board of Trustees and received the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1989.

Service to Thiel Award

RAYMOND B. HANLON ’74 As member and then President of the Alumni Association Board of Directors from 2006 to 2012, Ray Hanlon reached out to many classmates, explored ways to better utilize alumni board members and attended many alumni events and Homecomings to help engage and encourage alumni to support Thiel College. His featured profile in The Bell (Fall 2012) – speaks to his dedication and commitment to Thiel College: “Thiel affected me in so many positive ways that the experiences remained in my awareness of where I came from as I progressed through the normal stages of family and career life development. In looking back, it really is no surprise that I would find myself re-engaged with the College by serving on the Alumni Board, and in effect realizing that my experience at Thiel and my subsequent career and life validate one another.” A dedicated member of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee, Ray joined other board members, alumni, students, community leaders, staff and faculty for many hours of hard work, careful consideration and thoughtful discussion and presented Thiel 2016 to the Board of Trustees in November 2011—the final draft was approved in February 2012, 11 months after work began. For the past 30 years, Ray has worked at the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Psychiatry and Division of Pain Medicine. Besides fulfilling clinical duties, he lectured in various university and medical departments and mentored and supervised doctoral students and clinical psychology interns. He recently opened Hanlon Psychological Health Services (www.hanlonpsychological.com) in Slippery Rock, Pa., a full-service psychology practice for mental health and behavioral medicine services. While a student at Thiel, Ray was involved in intramural athletics, Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, the psychology club and the varsity tennis team. He earned his Master of Science Degree from Millersville University in 1977, professional psychology license in 1988 and his A.B.D from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002. Ray is a member of St. Christopher at the Lake Parish where he serves as a parish pastoral council member, social services volunteer, an usher/greet and the coordinator of Catholic Men’s Fellowship scripture study group. He and his wife, Donna, live in Portersville, Pa., and have two adult sons, Aaron and Sean.

Service to Thiel Award

DR. JAMES BLOOMFIELD Dr. James Bloomfield began his tenure at Thiel College in 1965 as an instructor of history. After more than 40 years of service as assistant, associate and professor of history, he retired and was named Professor Emeritus of History in 2006. Outside of the classroom, he was very active on campus serving as department chair and on faculty council several times. He also served on various faculty committees, or, as Jim puts it “nearly every faculty committee at one time or another.” Since his retirement, he has remained a dedicated member of the campus family by teaching as an adjunct in the Department of History. Well respected by his students and colleagues, Jim is a professor who taught in the classical tradition with polished, articulate lectures. While he presented rigorous course loads in topics such as 19th Century Europe and the Middle Ages, his students found him challenging and inspiring. In 2005, Jim received the Distinguished Teaching Award at Thiel’s annual Founders’ Day celebration. One of the founding members of the College’s western humanities program, Jim is especially interested in interdisciplinary courses with major interests in modern European history and minor concentration on the history of warfare, especially that of the United States. An art connoisseur world-traveler, Jim has visited over 14 different countries and most of North America. He holds professional memberships in the American Historical Association, American Association of University Professors and the Modern History Association. Before joining the faculty at Thiel, Jim held instructor positions at Muhlenberg College and Temple University. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Muhlenberg College, his master’s at Lehigh University and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. A member of First United Methodist Church, he and his wife, Janet, have one daughter, Elizabeth, and three granddaughters.

Young Alumni Award

BRANNING STREET ’06 When one thinks of the importance of young, vibrant teachers who make a tremendous difference in the lives of children, one can immediately think of Branning Street. Acquiring a GPA of 3.87 with dual degrees in elementary education and English/ secondary education certification at Thiel, he was also involved in Alpha Chi, Les Lauriers, Lambda Sigma, Kappa Delta Pi, Sigma Tau Delta, the Thiel Players, English Club, Art Club and editor of The Phoenix, literary magazine. Currently, while teaching, he is working on a master’s degree in literacy from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, where he has a 4.0 GPA. Branning is employed at Willard Kindergarten, where he teaches 23 students within a concentrated literacy framework. In the 2010-2011 school year, he became a technology specialist and taught various technology classes to grades K-3 and to middle school students. He also assisted and instructed teachers in technology, taught literature and film courses, and sponsored career services workshops to junior high students. In the 2009-2010 school year, he taught seventh-grade language arts and language arts inclusion; in the 2008-2009 school year, he taught seventh- and eighth-grade language arts in an alternative school to students with behavior and anger management problems. His optimism, positive attitude, adaptability, and determination to have his students succeed have enabled him to instruct struggling students to pass the Ohio General Test (OGT) by providing one-on-one tutoring and small-group reflection and to create intervention activities and games for students in study halls for extra academic support. He also serves on a committee to rewrite the curriculum maps and plan the curriculum for seventh-grade language arts for the Warren City School district. He taught a professional development class called “Incorporating Technology in the Classroom” for teachers. He has created and led activities for the School Building Culture team to boost teacher and student morale, and he has led the Million Word Campaign Committee to encourage reading throughout two K-8 buildings in the Warren City School District. Branning also teaches religion lessons and coordinates activities for the children and teens as the Youth Directory at the Fifth Avenue Community Church in Youngstown, Ohio. Branning and his wife, Ashley, ’06 live in Vienna, Ohio.
