WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 1 W&J president's message The value of mentoring The adage, "It takes a village to raise a child," could easily be applied to education. Throughout our youth, we learn from our teachers, our coaches, our peers and our mentors. This issue of the alumni magazine looks at how the Washington & Jefferson College community comes together to make a difference in the lives of W&J students. Some alumni, faculty and friends provide scholarships, making it possible for W&J students to afford a first-class liberal arts education. Others provide students with advice on maximizing opportunities during their college careers. Still others offer career guidance and help position graduates for employment. W&J mentors take these relationships seriously, and they give without expecting anything in return. One alumnus recently told me, "I was a junior when my father said he President Tori Haring-Smith could no longer pay for my tuition. I went to Dean Frank and Haley Roberts '14 and said I would have to withdraw. The Dean told me not to worry, that the bills would be paid. To this day, I don't know who paid the bills, but I was able to finish my degree." The scholarship not only afforded this student the opportunity to finish his degree, but it allowed him to remain in the midst of a supportive community while his family worked through a tough time. A version of this story is repeated every day at W&J. Not every example is quite so dramatic and not every student has this level of need, but every student relies on a good mentor to get the most out of the college experience. Mentoring is more than simply writing a check. When students want to know how to choose a major, whether to join a fraternity or sorority, or how to balance athletics and academics, mentors offer them valuable guidance. Some mentors offer career advice as well, helping students prepare for job interviews or think about creative ways to put their skills to work. These individuals pass on the wisdom they gained at W&J from the professors, coaches and staff members they knew so well--people who taught them how to think, to handle failure, and to cultivate perseverance and confidence. When I was a freshman in college, I benefited greatly from the guidance of my mentor. I had been raised on a college campus, and so I thought I understood college expectations. But I was not prepared for writing college papers or taking essay exams. I knew how to read, memorize and repeat, but I didn't know how to ask meaningful questions. The first essay I wrote in college received a C-. I had always received A's, so I felt I was failing. I was doing my best, but I was lost. I don't know what I would have done if my English professor had not taken the time to mentor me. He patiently taught me how to write papers that were more than simple plot summaries. From him, I learned how to be a student. I learned intellectual curiosity. I learned how to learn. As the years went by, this professor became a part of my family, and I continue to be in touch with him today. The idea of family is more than a metaphor at W&J--it is a reality--and each member plays a vital role in ensuring its continued success. Every time you recommend W&J to a prospective student, every time you recount the story of your education to a friend or co-worker, you help spread the story of this amazing College that truly changes lives. When you give your time or support W&J financially, you help the College to thrive. Education at W&J does not end when students receive their diplomas--it continues from generation to generation as the community finds important ways to give back to the College and our alumni remain vital members of their alma mater.

W&J Magazine took home its second consecutive platinum MarCom Award from the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals in the magazine/educational institution category. Additional honors were given in the categories of design, writing and feature article. The magazine also received a Renaissance Award from the Public Relations Society of America's Pittsburgh chapter. W&J was recognized in the external publication category. The perks of being a librarian Dear Editor: I never thought to mention the following until I read the letter from Russell "Tuck" MacCachran '45 in your summer 2011 issue. Most people in my field, librarianship, are assumed to have a placid life. I, on the other hand, have had a full and reasonably exciting one. Among other publications, I reviewed books for The New York Times for much of my career. Because of it, I dined with authors Michael Crichton and James Michener, breakfasted with sportscaster Red Barber, and bowed to Pearl Buck. Traveling throughout the world, while in Turkey, I had two one-on-one chats with the granddaughter--a princess--of the last sultan of Turkey. I met the chair of the drama department at the National Arts Council of Great Britain while in Greece, and later, in London, he introduced me to J.B. Priestley. During one of my trips to Spain, I had breakfast and lunch with John Scott Trotter of musical fame. I know this seems like name-dropping, but for a "nobody," I can't complain. Learned "Dag" Bulman '48 Hackettstown, N.J. A red and black love letter Dear Editor: I am writing a love letter to Washington & Jefferson. You have turned my nearest and dearest into the world, including my husband, the late Norman Allison '39, brother-in-law Donald Allison '41, father-in-law Rev. John S. Allison (1908), and father George C. Donson (1911). My lawyers, physicians, dentists and ministers have made my life easier because of your training. Dozens of others you taught were my allies in difficult times. Since we lived for 45 years on a hill within the sound of the College chimes, in a few minutes we could be in the midst of a whirling crowd of youth rushing to class. The NFL commissioner could have dashed by our car on the way down Lincoln Street! I have been your guest at Old Guard dinners, plays, concerts, serious lectures and certification classes. All the while, your culture permeated the area and we were better for it. With sadness, I have left you for another. Instead of book bags and jeans, I see sleek horses and hear the "clop clop" of Amish buggies. Although I miss your academic cloak, my current environment is more appropriate. A lifetime of happy, happy memories will linger of your many years of inspiration. Mary D. Allison Walnut Creek, Ohio President swap Dear Editor: As much as I enjoyed seeing my picture again in the last issue of W&J Magazine with returning football team members of 1970, there is an error in the names. The "handsome not-so-young" team member on the far left is not Vince Graziano '72, but Duncan Forsyth '74. Vince was on campus to meet everyone that morning, but left before the game. His daughter was married that afternoon, which was a command performance for Vince. Otherwise, he would have been at the game and in the picture. Pete Ross '74 Lancaster, Pa.

At 16 years old, Roberts was diagnosed with granulosa cell tumor (GCT), a rare form of ovarian cancer primarily found in post-menopausal women. Two years later, with the support of the Magellan Project, the biology major was afforded the opportunity to travel to New Zealand, where she studied with the world's leading researchers of the disease at the Granulosa Cell Tumour Research Foundation and University of Auckland. MEET THE MASCOTS: Bringing George and Tom back to life George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are turning heads at games, tailgates and special events across campus. Keep reading to learn more about W&J's newest arrivals. "There is a reason this happened to me. I am young and enthusiastic to find out more." � HALEY ROBERTS '14 Inspired by the popular "For Dummies" reference books, Roberts turned her research into a paper titled, "The Genetics of GCT: An Unofficial Guide for the Scientifically Illiterate." Since being posted to the foundation's website, the paper has been downloaded thousands of times by individuals in dozens of countries. "This information may help others make decisions on treatments and better conceptualize how and why their cancer is different from other ovarian cancers," said Roberts, who also has met with survivors to talk with them about their experiences. "I was able to learn more about ovarian cancer from two different vantage points--the science side and the treatment and quality of life side, which are both important in developing a more complete understanding of the disease." When Roberts returned to campus in the fall, the cross-country runner was determined to continue spreading awareness on her home turf. She approached Joyce Brobeck, head cross-country coach at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, with the idea of building an awareness event around the 9th Annual Bobcat Invitational in October. Brobeck, who lost her mother to ovarian cancer, took to the idea immediately, saying that it "elevated the meaning of the entire race." Through their combined efforts, 400 runners from the region's college and university cross-country teams sported teal ribbons to draw attention to the importance of awareness and early detection. "It was a great opportunity to get this message in front of hundreds of people who will then carry it back to their campuses so we can reach even more people," Roberts said. "We were able to reach thousands with just one event." Roberts, who also is a crusader for the "Turn the NFL Teal in September" campaign, will reach thousands more when she speaks at the GCT Survivors' Conference this April. "There is a reason this happened to me," she said. "I am young and enthusiastic to find out more." Haley Roberts, a survivor of ovarian cancer, helped turn a regional cross-country invitational into an awareness event for the disease. Extreme Makeover: Inspired by the Washington Nationals' "Racing Presidents," George and Tom first drew students' attention during a surprise visit to campus last year. To become official W&J mascots, the presidents were required to undergo a major makeover, sporting more menacing expressions and fancier threads than the original models. Head First: Standing 4 feet tall and weighing in at 30 pounds each, George and Tom's heads are composed of layers of foam and fabric. Their facial features come to life with airbrushing, markers and paint, and their eyes are plastic domes that are painted to look wet. Under Construction: The mascots' creator, Randy Carfagno, asks for six to eight weeks to make a character. "Every aspect must be thought out, sculpted, molded, drawn, draped, mocked up, refined, then built from real materials and finished to perfection," he said. "Not a small task." Secret Service: The Presidents are played by a rotating group of 12 anonymous student volunteers. "Their identities need to remain confidential, as it is a matter of utmost national security," said Steve Anderson, associate dean of student life at W&J. 4 WINTER 2012 MAGAZINE Noted & Quoted WE'RE A PRETTY MEDIA-LITERATE GENERATION because that's how we grew up.

Lady Bird Johnson was so shy, she sabotaged her own grades. Eleanor Roosevelt was kicked out of school for lying. James Longo, Ed.D., professor and chair of education at Washington & Jefferson College, wanted to learn more about how the educational experiences of U.S. presidents and first ladies impacted their paths to the White House. The result is his new book, "From Classroom to White House: The Presidents and First Ladies as Students and Teachers." Longo spent more than 10 years researching the book, visiting many of the schools where the presidents and first ladies studied and taught. He read their report cards, spoke with former teachers and classmates, and sat in Sunday school classes taught by Jimmy Carter in Plains, Ga. "Of all the presidents and first ladies, half became teachers, but all were students," Longo said. "I wondered what they were like. Most people think that when you get to the White House, you grew up as an angel. But in actuality, if you put them all in a classroom together, you would have a handful."

A number struggled with reading, while others had difficulty taking tests. "I love connecting these men and women to their childhoods and who they became," Longo said. "I see something endearing in almost all of them." Jackie Kennedy Onassis was called a "brat," and Barbara Bush was a "bully." Abraham Lincoln was "lazy," and George Washington and Harry Truman never could master spelling. George W. Bush was a straight-A student, but when his sister died in 1953, his grades began to deteriorate and he was labeled an "underachiever." "It is no accident that he fell in love with a second-grade teacher," Longo said of Bush. "This is a very bright man who has covered up a lot of pain." Longo believes the book represents "hope" for the parents of underachievers and salutes those teachers who make a difference. "The book contains a lot of life lessons," Longo said.

HOW TO \ TAKE THE BEST PICTURES An award-winning photographer, Sam Fee, Ph.D., associate professor of information technology leadership, shows you how to take vacation and family snapshots from "good" to "frame-worthy" in four simple steps. 1.) Remember the "rule of thirds." Imagine the image being split into three sections, both horizontally and vertically. Try to line up your content along these axes for more interesting compositions. Don't put your subject smack in the middle of your viewfinder or LCD display. 2.) Show me the light. Look to see where the light is coming from when taking a photo. You'll want to avoid harsh shadows on your subject, or getting your own shadow in the image. Many average photos can become quite good just by thinking about where the photographer and subject are located in relation to the light. 3.) Practice makes perfect. There's no cost for developing exposures, so you can take as many digital shots as you want. Use this as an excuse to experiment. Try shooting the subject or scene from different angles, and zoom in or out to see how your view of the subject changes. While traveling, it is especially important to take a lot of photos since you may not be back. 4.) Find the story. What makes the photo interesting? Look for it. In addition to being technically correct, a great image should carry that "emotional punch" that makes people think. Looking at something common in a different way helps to make the photo memorable. It's where science and art come together. WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 7 W&J news W&J REMEMBERS LEGENDARY ATHLETE WHO CHANGED THE GAME FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN COLLEGIATE SPORTS BREAKING BARRIERS As the Presidents kicked off their 120th football season in September, Washington & Jefferson College paused to honor the memory of a player who advanced the role of African-Americans in collegiate sports. Charles "Pruner" West '24 led the Presidents to their only Rose Bowl appearance in 1922 against the University of California Golden Bears, becoming the first African-American quarterback to play in the nation's oldest bowl game. According to his daughter, Linda West Nickens, West had been a halfback at the time, but was asked to play quarterback when the starter was injured. "It was kind of a `fill-in' thing, but my father rose to the occasion," she said. West, who also excelled at track and field, rose to the occasion at a number of athletic events during his W&J career. He earned the title of a two-time national collegiate pentathlon champion--a feat no W&J athlete had accomplished before--and was named to the 1924 Olympic team, though he did not participate due to an injury. In recognition of West's contributions, Dana Brooks, dean and professor of physical education at West Virginia University, presented W&J with a poster of West during a dedication ceremony Sept. 1 at the U. Grant Miller Library. Brooks, who first read about West when teaching a course on African-Americans in sports, was impressed with the student-athlete's accomplishments on and off the field. Referring to the bigotry that West endured in the pre-Civil Rights era, Brooks said the aspiring physician always remained "humble, successful and talented." The ceremony was attended by members of West's family, including Nickens and her children, Michael West Nickens and Crystal Nickens. "How fitting that you should choose to further spread my father's story at a time when the country is honoring, Martin Luther King, Jr., with a statue on the Washington, D.C., Mall," said Nickens, who proudly called her father a "pioneer." "He confronted racial barriers not only in football, but also in the medical field." At W&J, West is best known for his involvement in a legendary 1923 match against the Washington & Lee Generals. It was the tradition of the Southern school, at the time, to request that Northern teams bench their African-American players. When Bob "Mother" Murphy, W&J's athletic director, approached his star player about their opponent's demands, West voiced his frustration. "They left it up to me and asked how I felt about it," West later wrote. "I told them, well, there's no way I can stop you from playing without me, but if you do, I'll never play another game for W&J." This prompted Murphy to tell the Generals, "W&J does not play without Pruner West."As a result, the Presidents paid the Generals a portion of the proceeds that would have come from ticket sales and dropped out of the game. 8 WINTER 2012 MAGAZINE ROSE BOWL REPLAY 10 FACTS ABOUT W&J'S FIRST AND ONLY ROSE BOWL APPEARANCE What generally was unknown at the time was that W&J made the decision knowing that West had a sprained ankle and would not have been able to play. "For W&J, it wasn't about the color of West's skin, it was about his skill and ability," Alexis Rittenberger '99, director of library services at W&J, said. The decision gained the support of not just the College, but the entire town of Washington. "On Oct. 9, 1923, the Observer-Reporter wrote, `It is the business of the College to broaden mind and develop character, and it falls short of its true mission if it cannot recognize worth beneath a dark skin,'" Rittenberger read at the dedication ceremony. "This is what we're here to celebrate today." It is a story repeated at the start of each academic year by President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., who uses W&J's decision in 1923 as an example of how the College demonstrates "uncommon integrity." "If you stop any student on campus, they'll be able to tell you the story of that game," Haring-Smith told West's family. "Your father was one of those people who, through virtue of his incredible intellect, humanitarian spirit and athletic ability, became a role model for us." Nickens recalls the countless times her father shared the story with her while growing up in Alexandria, Va. "My father was always just grateful, so grateful, for the stand Mr. Murphy took against Washington & Lee," Nickens said of West, who went on to practice general medicine for 50 years. "He was a real humanitarian, treating all groups regardless of their ability to pay," she said. West, who received his medical degree from Howard University after turning down a contract to play professional football with the Akron Pros, was presented with the Distinguished Service Award from W&J in 1978 for his dedication as a doctor. Today, a black-and-white banner of West throwing the javelin hangs proudly in the Towler Hall of Fame alongside other timeless images of W&J's legendary athletes. "We will keep the story of Charles West alive," Haring-Smith promised West's family at the ceremony. "We will pledge to do that, because he is such a vital part of our College's history." � ALLYSON GILMORE '12 1. SMALL WONDER: With an enrollment of 450 students, W&J is the smallest school ever to play in the Rose Bowl. AGAINST THE ODDS: The 2. 3. University of California was favored to beat undefeated W&J by 14 points. Instead, the game ended in the only scoreless tie in Rose Bowl history.

WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 9 From the moment you set foot onto the Washington & Jefferson College campus as a hopeful freshman to the day you leave as a confident graduate poised to make an impression in your chosen field, you belong to an exclusive network of alumni available to guide you throughout your career. Composed of executives, industry leaders and visionaries, it is a network committed to ensuring the success of the College and the young men and women it proudly cultivates. Whether writing a recommendation letter, donating a scholarship check, offering an internship or sharing career advice, generations of Presidents are finding meaningful ways to give back to the place that influenced the way they think, communicate and, most importantly, live. � MEGAN MONAGHAN The meaningful way alumni are shaping the future, one President at a time 10 WINTER 2012 MAGAZINE FORWARD THINKING HINK N "If I've helped three people, and they each help three people, it becomes an ever-ready budding gift." � WALTER FLAMENBAUM '62, M.D. ALUMNUS' GENEROSITY OPENS DOORS FOR DESERVING STUDENTS Biochemistry whiz Ji Park '12 recalls the Intersession term he spent buried in educational court cases as one of his favorite learning experiences at Washington & Jefferson College. While the School Law course forced Park out of his comfort zone, the aspiring scientist related to the problemsolving aspect of the legal process. "I enjoyed the similarities between science and law, where I was searching for the answer," he said. The senior chemistry major can broaden his already rigorous pre-health curriculum with electives that challenge him because he is not distracted by financial concerns, like how he will pay his next tuition bill or where he will find a campus job. "Because I haven't been so worried about my financial obligations, I have been able to explore what I wanted to do--to find my passion," said Park, who is a beneficiary of W&J's Give It Forward Together (GIFT) Fund. Supported in part by Walter Flamenbaum '62, M.D., the scholarship helps cover tuition, room and board costs for deserving students in need of financial assistance. When personal circumstances at home drastically changed Park's financial situation at the end of his freshman year, President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., saw the GIFT Fund as an opportunity to keep Park studying, and thriving, at W&J. Three years later, Park, a high school valedictorian originally from South Korea, is just months away from receiving his W&J degree. But not before he completes an honors project under the guidance of associate professor Nobu Matsuno, Ph.D., capping off what has been an impressive undergraduate career. Park, who always has dreamed of graduating from college and attending medical school, credits Flamenbaum for making that step possible. "Every day, I wake up and know that I am here because Dr. Flamenbaum decided to help a student he didn't know," he said. "That's what amazes me the most." Today, Flamenbaum and Park share a relationship that transcends the initial bounds of the scholarship program. When Park earned a coveted internship last summer at the University of Cincinnati's College of Medicine, Flamenbaum offered to put him in touch with one of his business partners in the area, who agreed to meet with Park over lunch to talk about his vaccine research. The discussion was encouraging to Park, who appreciated hearing that the former biochemist was able to transition smoothly to a successful career in virology. "It helped me relax about what I'm doing," he said. "My classmates and I kind of freak out that when we graduate, we'll be working in our chosen career path for the rest of our lives. But chances are, that won't be the case." Fellow GIFT Fund beneficiary Metzli Rivera '14 also experienced concerns regarding her choice of study as a first-year student at W&J. When the biology major started to second-guess her commitment to the pre-health program, she contacted Flamenbaum, a former biology major, for advice. "We talked on the phone for an hour and a half," she said. "He explained that while the program is competitive, the work would pay off if it was my passion. If it was not, he encouraged me to go out and explore other options." At Flamenbaum's suggestion, Rivera took an accounting class the following fall and declared the subject as her new major. A graduate of the YES Prep Public Schools system in Houston, the cross-country runner came to W&J from a demanding high school dedicated to increasing the number of students from low-income communities who earn a college degree. The first-generation college student values Flamenbaum's counsel as much as she appreciates his financial support. "Being able to talk with someone who has been through the college experience, especially at W&J, is very helpful," she said. "He can give me a perspective that others cannot." It is a situation to which Flamenbaum can relate. The doctor-turned-entrepreneur from Manhattan, who attended W&J on a scholarship and held an on-campus job showing films to help cover his tuition, benefited greatly under the guidance of his mentors. Citing influential biology professors Dewey Dieter and Homer Porter, who set high expectations for his academic performance, and English professor Robert Brindley, who shaped how he reads novels, Flamenbaum credits many at the College for contributing to his life and career. "My experience at W&J helped make me the person I am today," he said. "You might not recognize that the day you leave school--maybe not in 10 years and maybe not even in 20 years-- but down the road, you should turn around, look over your shoulder, and think about what it means to be an alumnus of the College." For Flamenbaum, it meant giving back to W&J what he felt he had received as a student, both personally and financially. As a professor of medicine for nearly 30 years, seeing how his generosity directly impacts the lives of hard-working students like Park and Rivera is a rewarding incentive. "To the extent you get to participate in their success, being a voyeur is wonderful," said Flamenbaum, who will have the opportunity to watch Park graduate this May, exactly 50 years after the day he received his W&J degree. While it will be a special occasion for Flamenbaum and Park, who hopes to introduce his family to the man he calls his "lifelong mentor," it will not signify the culmination of their relationship, nor of the scholarship. That is because the donor's only request of Park, Rivera and others he helps is that they consider giving to W&J one day in return. "If I've helped three people, and they each help three people, it becomes an ever-ready budding gift," Flamenbaum said. "It is, quite literally, the gift that keeps on giving."

It is a fearless reporting technique that has garnered Squitieri coveted recognition from the Overseas Press Club and White House Correspondents Association. A noteworthy feat for the former USA Today reporter who, when looking back on his countless news articles, speeches, poems and blog entries, claims that the first story he ever published originated from an assignment in Richard Easton's Advanced Composition class at Washington & Jefferson College. "I remember seeing Thomas running across campus toward Davis Hall, yelling out to me and waving a letter saying that he had been published," said Easton, who still owns an original copy of the magazine featuring the college senior's satire. The 1975 issue of Tennis Illustrated is well read and yellowed with time, but cherished by the author's professor, who proudly keeps it among the other clippings that document Squitieri's remarkable writing career. "I'd like Tom to know that I've admired him ever since the day he showed me that letter," added Easton, reflecting on a relationship that has developed into a steadfast bond, packed with memories of weddings, parties and family occasions. Though Squitieri believes that Easton considers all of his students to be his "favorites," the political science major and avid tennis player felt he had "found a home" in the young professor's classroom. "When he wrote his number on the back of my blue book at the end of that first class, I knew I had gotten what I needed out of college," Squitieri said. After graduating, Easton's prot�g� returned many times to that classroom to talk to future generations of writers about news reporting and the elements of good style. Aided by newspaper veterans when he was still a budding reporter, Squitieri credits others' "unselfish help" with enhancing his own career. "I vowed that one day, I would edit and teach and give back the good stuff that I was given," he said. When approached six years ago about creating and teaching an Intersession course at his alma mater, Squitieri was given the opportunity to fulfill that promise. Called "15 Minutes of Fame or Shame," his course, which combines facets of journalism, ethics and current affairs, challenges W&J students to think on their feet. The title alone was enough to intrigue first-year student Wahab Owolabi '09, who was looking for an Intersession course that would not interfere with his basketball schedule. The 6-foot-4-inch power forward did not anticipate that the course, and the professor, would forever change his perspective on the world. "When you walk into a class, you really don't expect it to have a huge impact on you, but Tom's class did for me, especially in terms of how I look at life," said Owolabi, who was profoundly moved by the videos he watched of his professor reporting from hazardous war zones. "At that time, I didn't think all the stuff in the news and on TV had anything to do with me. It seemed like a different world," he said. "Tom showed us that it does have something to do with you, and if you want to get involved and make a difference, you can." It was this eagerness to learn that distinguished Owolabi as a "remarkable student" to Squitieri, who appreciated the viewpoint he brought to his classroom. "He got what I was trying to teach and interacted every day, increasing the quality of the course," Squitieri said. "I saw how the others looked to him and followed his lead--not being afraid to participate or, most importantly, challenge me." Today, the three-time All-Presidents' Athletic Conference honoree stays active in basketball as an assistant coach at Carnegie Mellon University, where he also acts as an engineering career consultant. Yet he lights up when talking about the company he founded a few months ago that reinvents the college admission process into a virtual format. The concept stemmed from the kind of innovative thinking that Owolabi honed under the guidance of Squitieri, whom he admires for "his entrepreneurial spirit." Owolabi looks forward to bouncing ideas about the company off of his mentor who, in turn, is excited to see where his star pupil will go next, willing to offer any advice he can along the way. While Squitieri remains focused on running his own communications consulting firm, as well as raising his two young children, his innate curiosity about the world keeps him asking questions, and writing about the answers. For Easton, this means a constant flow of Squitieri's stories to his inbox, along with playful reminders of a particularly low grade he once received on a travel article in Easton's class. "Of course, Tom went on to make his career writing travel articles, and years later, he would cut them out of the newspaper and them to me, asking, `Do I get send t an A on this assignment now, coach?' I think you could say he's earned it." WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 13 SENIOR THRIVES UNDER GUIDANCE OF AMBITIOUS ATTORNEY AND DEVOTED PROFESSOR Joined by a class of 20 Washington & Jefferson College students exploring the political culture of The Gambia in January, associate professor Buba Misawa, Ph.D., accepted a new assignment to help distribute birthing kits to the country's undeveloped villages. The kits, which contain supplies to help ensure a clean and safe childbirth, were provided by Misawa's prot�g�s Rachel Lozosky Friedmann '01 and Caitlin Quicksell '12. The two, who were paired together through the Alumni Mentor Program, jumped at the chance to support their favorite political science professor's efforts in Africa. "We had 500 birthing kits waiting to go somewhere, but no committed distribution partner," said Friedmann, who organized the project as president of her local chapter of Zonta International, a service and advocacy group focused on advancing the status of women worldwide. When Quicksell learned about her mentor's cause, she did not Rotary Club, balances her law career with community service activities. "I remember that she always wanted to help people, because she would share her notes in class," Misawa said of his standout student. "Rachel took almost every course that I taught here, I think. I used to kid her that she was majoring in Misawa." The political science and psychology double major often challenged Misawa by raising alternative viewpoints during class debates. He even recalls learning from a paper Friedmann wrote on Sigmund Freud, which is quite a compliment from the seasoned professor, who has read countless papers during his 17 years at W&J. "I can't believe he remembered that paper," said Friedmann, laughing about the long hours she spent in Misawa's class writing her final essay exams. "The sun would be going down, and I would be the last person sitting in class," she said. "That's the way you "Buba is the quintessential W&J professor in the sense that he cares about you 360 degrees." � RACHEL LOZOSKY FRIEDMANN '01 hesitate to approach Misawa about taking the kits to The Gambia during his upcoming Intersession course. The Nigerian-born professor, who frequently donates clothing, shoes and school supplies to village schools, was happy to help. "It makes me not only proud of them, but overwhelmed with joy to know that they are supporting the people of Africa," Misawa said. The notion of giving to others is something that Misawa encourages his students to consider as they embark on their professional careers. He is not surprised that Friedmann, who also stays active in the Washington take a Buba test. You write until you can't write anymore, and that helped prepare me for law school and later, the bar exam, when you need to be able to discuss material clearly and effectively, even when you're tired." Most importantly, Friedmann valued her professor's open approach with his students, especially as a freshman taking her first political science course. "It was apparent that his interest in you went beyond coming to class and instructing you on the material," she said, referring to all the times Misawa would ask about her family and growing up in her small, rural hometown in western Pennsylvania. Caitlin Quicksell '12, Buba Misawa, Rachel Lozosky Friedmann '01 14 WINTER 2012 MAGAZINE FORWARD THINKING N "Buba is the quintessential W&J professor in the sense that he cares about you 360 degrees," she said. Today, as a Washington-based attorney specializing in educational law, Friedmann applies Misawa's teaching style to her own career by forming close relationships with her clients. "So much of good legal representation is relating to your clients on many levels and realizing that no problem is one-dimensional," said Friedmann, who calls herself a "beneficiary" of the valuable relationships she formed and cultivated at W&J. Now Friedmann is honored to pass on the knowledge she acquired from mentors like Misawa to Quicksell, an international studies and Spanish double major approaching some big decisions regarding her future. For the past year, the two have been meeting at least once a month to compare W&J stories and discuss the options available to Quicksell after she graduates in May. "It's nice to have someone like Rachel who doesn't necessarily tell me what to do, but allows me to filter my thoughts," said Quicksell, who is looking at graduate school programs in management leadership and finance or international development. Friedmann is careful not to let her opinions sway the ambitious senior, but rather encourages her to explore different paths and evaluate what will make her happy. "It really has been a joy to hear Caitlin talk about the things that she loves and the things she's discovering that she may have thought were the right paths for her, but aren't necessarily so," Friedmann said. "Helping her through that process, giving her insights from my own experience where I can, and helping her find what's right for her--I think that's the best thing any mentor can do." No matter where Quicksell's or Friedmann's paths take them, Misawa hopes that a trip to Africa is on their radar. Though they both spent most of their undergraduate careers in Misawa's classes, neither was able to fit the more than 4,000-mile trek across the Atlantic to The Gambia into their packed schedules. "That's why they didn't end up with a Misawa major," he joked. "But I'll take them whenever they'd like to go," he added, prompting Friedmann to earnestly respond, "Definitely. One day." WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 15 INSPIRED BY PROFESSOR, MEDICAL LEADER OPENS RESEARCH LAB TO MOTIVATED STUDENTS Brad Class '12 Dennis Trelka Gary Silverman '78 Gary Silverman '78, M.D., Ph.D., had a plan when he entered the office of his academic adviser, Dennis Trelka, Ph.D., in the fall of 1974. The ambitious freshman wanted to undertake an honors project, an opportunity that was not made available to Washington & Jefferson College students until their junior year. In turn, working with Silverman encouraged the professor to "open up more" to deserving students who demanded guidance beyond the traditional curriculum. This compassionate approach to education carried Trelka throughout his 36 years of teaching at W&J. "Gary and some of his classmates have become part of our family," said Trelka, who went on to stand in his former student's wedding and asked Silverman to be the godfather of his daughter, Jessica. Looking back, Trelka hopes Silverman learned from him how to "maximize his efforts, inside and outside the classroom." He added, "I think I taught him that the glass is always half full." Today, as chief of the newborn medicine program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Silverman is opening doors for W&J students as Trelka once did for him. The researcher, who also serves as a professor at the university, has invited more than 50 students from his alma mater into his lab, an impressive lineup that most recently included Brad Class '12. Double majoring in biology and Spanish, Class dedicated two summers to interning in Silverman's lab after receiving a recommendation from biology chair Alice Lee, Ph.D. Throughout the intensive 10-week program, he helped Silverman conduct research on diseases that affect newborn babies. When he was invited back the following year, Class was grateful for the chance to continue his work. "Dr. Silverman is a great role model because he has achieved so much," said Class, who is considering following in the steps of his mentor by pursuing a dual M.D./Ph.D. program. Expressing a desire to spread his wings, Class, who comes to W&J from Cumberland, Md., lists the National Institutes of Health or universities in the New England area as attractive options. "In Brad, I sort of see myself," Silverman said of his prot�g�. "I can help Brad and others who want to go down my path envision what that will be and give them the opportunity to see what it takes to do it." It is a valuable relationship that Class hopes will continue beyond graduation. "I think he will be one of my support systems--a life mentor," Class said. "It is always good to have people who have made it, so to speak, on your side." If the relationship that Silverman developed with Trelka is any indication of what Class can expect from his mentor, the aspiring researcher will be in good hands. Nearly 40 years after Silverman first walked into his adviser's class his freshman year, the two have remained close companions. "His interest in W&J has never waned. If anything, it has grown stronger," Trelka said of his memorable pupil. "Gary is a consummate friend. He is always in touch, wherever he has been." � ROBERT REID "Gary's interest in W&J has never waned. If anything, it has grown stronger." � DENNIS TRELKA, PH.D. "He impressed the heck out of me," Trelka said of the confident young biology major. After denying Silverman's request, the two argued, and the professor recommended that his student find another adviser. Yet Silverman persisted, and a year later, he completed his first honors project at Hahnemann Medical College, now Drexel University, under Trelka's attentive guidance. "Gary had an understanding of things and one of the best problem-solving minds I've ever encountered," Trelka said. "He was very bright, and had a work ethic that set him apart." A special bond quickly formed between the professor and student, who thrived on the high expectations Trelka set in the classroom. As a former marine, Trelka appreciated the discipline the starting defensive back exhibited in the lab, comparing their relationship to one that a coach would share with his athlete. Silverman agreed, adding that Trelka was a "tough, hard-nosed guy on the outside, but behind that, a gentle guy who always cared about his students."

Carlisle thinks the difference may lie in the earliest stages of that person's development, a theory that has prompted the assistant professor of neurological surgery to refocus the scope of her research. "The more I read into it, I thought about how the lungs develop, and what could happen during pregnancy that may predispose someone to getting lung cancer later in life," she said. "Could being exposed to smoke, whether from the mother or second hand, before you are born make you that one out of 10?" It is the kind of inventive thinking that the former molecular biology major honed at Washington & Jefferson College, where she was given the opportunity to intern with W&J alumna Kerin Fresa-Dillon '79, Ph.D., at her lab in Philadelphia. Carlisle was introduced to Fresa-Dillon by her professor Alice Lee, Ph.D., after expressing uncertainty regarding her career path. "I was one of the only biology majors at the time not in the pre-med program, so it was hard to think about what kinds of jobs were out there for someone like me," Carlisle explained. "What could I do after graduation if I loved science but didn't want to be a doctor?" Working with Fresa-Dillon during Intersession helped Carlisle realize that she did not have to be a doctor to pursue a career in health. "Biomedical research was real and it was something that I could do," said Carlisle, who eventually applied the concepts she learned in Fresa-Dillon's lab to her doctoral thesis. She credits mentors like Fresa-Dillon and Lee with opening her up to "a whole world of science outside of medical school." Since supervising Carlisle nearly 20 years ago, Fresa-Dillon continues to open her lab at the Pennsylvania College of Osteopathic Medicine to a stream of ambitious W&J students, "I have never regretted taking on a W&J student. I can give them real projects that contribute to my work." � DIANE CARLISLE '94, PH.D. praising their "well-developed problem-solving skills." "They are very inquisitive, which is a prerequisite for a scientific mind," said Fresa-Dillon, who, just last year, invited intern Taylor Eddens '11 to present with her at the World Vaccine Congress in Beijing. Following her mentor's lead, Carlisle relishes the chance to train prospective scientists from W&J in her lab at the University of Pittsburgh. "I have never regretted taking on a W&J student," said Carlisle, remarking on the "energy and enthusiasm" they bring to her research. "I can give them real projects that contribute to my work." Two of Carlisle's most recent interns, Jamey Butala '12 and RaeLynn Forsyth '12, proved helpful in the process of determining the effects of nicotine on developing lungs. An aspiring doctor, Forsyth valued making the connection between research and medicine in Carlisle's lab. "It's so important to see how we got where we are in the medical field," she said. "It gave me a stronger appreciation for what physicians do, and for what I hope to accomplish one day as a physician." For Butala, who spent her last two Intersession terms in Tanzania, where she observed the behavior of wild African animals, and Maui, where she studied the impact of boats on humpback whales, Carlisle's research lab offered the veterinarian hopeful a change of scenery. While Butala's preferred patients remain animals, learning how to differentiate lung cells from human embryonic stem cells gave her problem-solving skills that can apply to any field. "When you walk into a college lab, a lot of the time, you generally know what the outcome will be," Carlisle said of the tried-and-true techniques practiced in educational settings. "Whereas, in my research lab, I have no idea what the outcome will be when we're doing an experiment. That's why we're doing the experiment--because we don't know the answer to the question." Five years since Carlisle questioned a potential source of lung cancer, she is closer to finding an answer. Though she no longer seeks research advice from Fresa-Dillon, she continues to keep her mentor updated on her career choices. "While a mentor can't make decisions for you, they can help you discover what your options are," said Carlisle, who reunites with Fresa-Dillon each year when they return to campus to participate on the external advisory board for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, which awards colleges like W&J valuable funding for science education. "Mentorship is essential at every single stage of our careers, because we need to connect with someone who has been down that road before to help us decide where to go," she said, adding that she "fully hopes" both Butala and Forsyth keep in touch with her after graduation. "When someone else already has been down that road, why reinvent the wheel?" WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 17 W&J sports W&J sports Standing out On Dec. 5, 1992, Russ Briggs '58 sat in the bleachers in Glassboro, N.J., as the Presidents took on Rowan University in the NCAA Division III football semifinals. A win would give W&J its first appearance in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the national championship game. After Chris Babirad '94 broke off his memorable 81-yard, game-winning touchdown run with seven minutes and 37 seconds left, Briggs jumped up to cheer--and to check his circulation. "I've never been so cold in my life," Briggs said. "The wind was whipping 25-30 miles per hour the entire game. Oh my, that was some game. I'll never forget that touchdown run." If Briggs declares that Saturday as the coldest game he has ever attended, that statement holds some serious clout. Since retiring from Western Electric/AT&T, Briggs has attended nearly every W&J football game, home and away, for two decades, including trips to Florida, Texas and New York. Yet what makes his journeys truly unique is that they begin in Graham, N.C. --a whopping 422 miles from the W&J campus. After graduating from Trinity High School in 1949, Briggs joined the armed forces and eventually worked for an aircraft company in Marietta, Ga. When he decided to give college a try, he considered Georgia Tech and Penn State (a school which he deemed at the time as "much too expensive") before returning home to W&J. He credits Frederick J. Frank, former director of admission, for giving him the final push. "Fred Frank was relentless," he said. "He just wouldn't give up until I said `yes.'" Briggs was a track athlete in high school, but never played a sport in college. As a student, he followed the Presidents football team during a rough patch in the program's history, when W&J won only four games from 1954-57. He majored in both physics and mathematics, and met his wife, Norma George, whom he married before his junior year. "My wife put as much time in at W&J as I did, but she didn't get a diploma," Briggs said of Norma, who passed away in 2005. She joined from the crowd her husband on many of his trips during their 49-year marriage, but she did not make that bitter 1992 national semifinal game. "If I remember correctly, she made the trip to Florida the next week," he added with a laugh. "My wife loved to travel and we went to many games together." Briggs estimates that he drives 20,000-25,000 miles per year on highways. Since 1989, he has owned six different cars, all Hondas, for his trips up and down the east coast. "I usually put 150,000-170,000 miles on cars and then get a new one," said Briggs, who has learned to enjoy cruise control. For most games, the trip from North Carolina to Cameron Stadium takes about eight hours. He leaves on a Friday and stays the weekend with his sister-in-law in Washington before getting on the road early Sunday morning--after attending a 7:30 a.m. church service. Amazingly, Briggs never has called for roadside assistance on any of his journeys to watch the Presidents. He also never has driven through what he considers "a bad storm," citing just one heavy snowfall on a trip to Buffalo, N.Y., in November. He remembers many of the great players, the stadiums, the bands and the beautiful campuses. After witnessing so many football games, what drives him to the stands every weekend is the Division III philosophy. "Ninety-nine percent of Division III players aren't in it to become pros," said Briggs, remembering Chris Warren, a Division III running back from Ferrum, Va., who became the Seattle Seahawks' all-time leading rusher. "I remember one W&J player who was in an NFL preseason camp, but for the most part, these kids are out there because they love football." This past season, Briggs only missed one game, the Nov. 5 contest with Thiel. He still attended a sporting event that weekend, as he went to his FOR TWO DECADES OF W&J FOOTBALL, BRIGGS REMAINS A STEADY PRESENCE IN THE STANDS Russ Briggs takes in the W&J game against Thomas More at Cameron Stadium in September. He attended nine out of 10 games this season. 10-year-old granddaughter's soccer tournament in Charlotte. Could Presidents fans someday see one of Briggs' 12 grandchildren in the starting lineup for the red and black at Cameron Stadium? "No way, not going to happen," he quickly answered. "None of my grandchildren play football. Don't worry, I'm already working on my granddaughter for another sport. If you ask her, she'll tell you she's going to W&J to play soccer." Head Football Coach Mike Sirianni had a special surprise for Briggs when working on the 2012 schedule. W&J will open the season Sept. 1 at Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C., which is only one hour and 58 minutes south of his driveway. For a change, W&J will be playing on Briggs' home turf. "That is going to be a great afternoon," he concluded. "I can't wait. I already am trying to round up a bunch of guys to head down to the game. Any time W&J plays in North Carolina or Virginia is fine by me." � SCOTT MCGUINNESS 18 WINTER 2012 MAGAZINE Athletic Hall of Fame adds six stars In September, the Washington & Jefferson College Athletic Hall of Fame inducted six legendary studentathletes from five different decades, including two of the most decorated female athletes in school history.

She scored 61 career goals and added 35 assists for 157 points. The first women's soccer player in school history to be named First-Team All-Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) during all four years of her career, Bosley also was selected as the 2000 PAC Most Valuable Player. During her freshman season in 1997, she set the single-season scoring record with 19 goals and 45 points. Forrest "Jap" Douds '30* was the first Pittsburgh Steelers coach in 1933. A native of Rochester, Pa., Douds was a Grantland Rice All-American in 1927 and 1928 for the Presidents as well as a participant in two East-West Shrine Games, becoming the first college player to accomplish that feat. Following his collegiate career, he played five years of professional football, including two with the Steelers, who then were called the "Pirates." Gregg Ferrero '87 still owns the second-best winning percentage (.875) in the history of W&J wrestling with a 63-9 record. He is 13th on the College's career win list and, at the time of his graduation, was second on the career victories list. Ferrero also is one of 11 W&J student-athletes in any sport to earn two CoSIDA Academic All-America awards. Bill Hayes '63 lettered six times during his career as a two-sport athlete at W&J and became the first four-time, all-conference baseball player in College history. W&J's Outstanding Senior Athlete also was a top scorer on the Presidents' basketball team, which captured the first PAC Championship in school history in 1963. John Mojzer '53* was a 6-foot-5 scoring machine who led the Presidents to 38 victories during his three varsity seasons. A native of McMechen, W.Va., Mojzer averaged 14.8 points per game (873 career points), including a 24-point game at Madison Square Garden against No. 1-ranked St. John's in 1951. During his sophomore season, W&J posted an 18-3 record. In his final game against St. Francis (Pa.), he netted 23 points against future Basketball Hall of Famer Maurice Stokes. Leigh Sulkowski '06 is the only four-time All-American in W&J basketball history. A three-time PAC Player of the Year, she led the Presidents to three appearances in the NCAA Division III Tournament and two PAC Championships. Her 2,034 career points are the most in school history (men or women), and she owns four of the seven highest single-season scoring years in program history. Sulkowski also was one of 25 players selected to the D3hoops.com All-Decade Team (2000-2009). *Deceased OPPONENT METHODIST FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. ST.

Ryan and Galligan were the top runners on their respective teams all season and turned in solid showings at the Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Championship and NCAA Division III Regional. The duo was part of an elite group, as just 56 runners--the top seven athletes from each region not a part of a qualifying team--were selected to participate in each championship. Ryan finished the men's championship race in 175th position, completing the 279-runner, 8K course in a time of 25:45.20, the top individual performance in College history. Ryan also won individual titles at Pitt-Greensburg and Waynesburg, and he was the runner-up at the PAC Championship. One of the most decorated runners to compete at W&J, Ryan has earned First-Team All-PAC accolades three years in a row and has been named PAC Runner of the Week nine times. Galligan ran a 22:48.62 in the 277-runner, 6K women's race, finishing in 179th position. She was a two-time PAC Runner of the Week and finished in the top 16 in all seven regular-season races. Galligan recorded a time of 22:45.50 at the Oberlin Inter-Regional Rumble in October, setting a College record for the second-fastest time. "As first-time NCAA Division III qualifiers, Scott and Kristen have helped the program in a tremendous way, not only with their athletic talent, but also by helping pave the way for future success with recruiting," first-year Head Coach Shawn Marek said. Kristen Galligan '15 WOMEN'S SOCCER The women's soccer team won its first regular-season PAC Championship after producing an unbeaten record (8-0-1) in conference play for the first time. The Presidents set a College record with a 13-game unbeaten streak (12-0-1) on their way to a 14-4-1 overall record. The defense also broke a record by allowing just 13 goals, beating last year's record of 16 goals, while posting 12 shutouts. W&J's record-breaking season came to an end earlier than expected as Waynesburg edged top-seeded W&J 1-0 in the PAC Tournament semifinals at Alexandre Stadium.

The Presidents finished the season with a 14-5 record and entered the Empire 8 Conference Tournament as the fourth seed. W&J upset top-seeded Utica 4-2 in the semifinals and then downed Nazareth h 2-1 in the conference title game to earn the automatic bid. The defense allowed just three goals and 13 shots in two Empire 8 Tournament games, led by Meaghan Thornlow '13, who was named Empire 8 Tournament Most Valuable Player. The Presidents traveled to William Smith College in Geneva, N.Y., for the NCAA Tournament, where they lost a hard-fought, first-round contest by a 2-0 margin. W&J's strong showing was highlighted by goalkeeper Shelby Colyer '12, who made a season-high 10 saves. "Winning the championship after falling just short four years ago speaks to the commitment and dedication of the players," fifth-year Head Coach Jomara Coghlan said. "We came back every year and worked a little bit harder, got a little bit stronger and never, ever gave up. Going forward, I believe the program will only get stronger, and we will continue to build on our success." During the regular season, Jennifer Marabella '13 passed Beth Kelley '07 to become the College's all-time l-time leader in total points (101), and she took over first place on the all-time goals scored list with 46.

Klitz, Ph.D., was off to his second office in the stands at Alexandre Stadium. It was a chilly November evening that Klitz-- and the Washington & Jefferson College women's soccer team--had been waiting for since the season kicked off in early September. Coming off their first undefeated regular season, the three-time defending champions were hoping to clinch their fourth Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) title. As the top seed, W&J was heavily favored in the semifinal game against fourth-seeded Waynesburg. However, informed fans like Klitz knew it would be a tough game as the Yellow Jackets had taken the Presidents to double overtime just 10 days earlier before falling short 2-1 after a Holly Shipley '14 goal. Unfortunately, Waynesburg stunned W&J on their home turf that night with a 1-0 triumph, ending the Presidents' PAC Championship run and bringing their three-month journey to an abrupt close. No fan was more upset than Klitz. "I live vicariously through the team's success, there's no doubt about that," said Klitz, who confesses that he was in a "terrible, bitter mood" after the loss. "The problem is that I really feel the lows--it's like I am actually out there playing." the sport, and I became attached after attending my first W&J game." Klitz is one of 20 professors involved in the faculty/coach mentor program, which allows faculty members to serve as advocates for student-athletes while developing working relationships with coaches. The program made its campus debut four years ago behind the efforts of Bill Dukett, director of athletics, and John Gregor, Ph.D., NCAA faculty representative and professor of economics, business and accounting. Prior to the start of each school year, Klitz meets with the team during a preseason practice to introduce himself and explain his function as the team's mentor. He provides valuable insight for student-athletes entering their first year of college and serves as a secondary academic adviser for the team members. "Doing great things on the athletics field and maintaining a high level of success in the classroom is very impressive to me," Klitz said. "As a faculty mentor, I feel that it is my responsibility to offer them advice based on what has worked for past student-athletes. Time management is one of the most important elements, and they need to know that as freshmen." As a faculty mentor for the women's soccer team, Timothy Klitz acts as an academic adviser and cheerleader.

Yet Silverman's extensive resume does not note the countless hours he has invested in mentoring students, bringing more than 50 students from W&J's pre-health program into his labs. "As one who epitomizes the concept of `paying it forward,' Gary began, early in his career, to mentor students," Dennis Trelka, Ph.D., professor emeritus of biology at W&J, said. "Dr. Silverman gave them the training and confidence to realize that they could function well in this elite company of research scientists." Silverman, who oversees the newborn medicine program at Magee-Women's Hospital and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, also serves as a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. For nearly 25 years, Silverman also has been returning to W&J as a guest lecturer. He made valuable contributions to W&J's first two Howard Hughes Medical Institute grants and spearheaded the fundraising effort behind the Trelka Prize for Original Research in the Life Sciences. He is a former member of the Alumni Executive Council. Charlie P. Eaton '64 As the founder and owner of C.P. Eaton Partners, LLC, Charlie P. Eaton '64 maintains a roster of investors that includes more than 200 of the largest and best-known institutions in the U.S. and abroad. Under his leadership, the independent marketing firm has raised more than $33 billion for 70 funds. Eaton's success is not a surprise to his classmates and Phi Gamma Delta fraternity brothers who knew him as an economics major and member of the football team at W&J. "Charlie is the kind of guy you want in your corner," Vaughan Blaxter '65 said. "I count myself among the many people who greatly admire Charlie not just for his incredible business sense, but also for his commitment to giving back to the community." Eaton began his career as an investment research officer at Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., predecessor to J.P. Morgan Investment Management. Working his way up Wall Street, he also worked at Mitchell Hutchins, Morgan Stanley and H.C. Wainwright & Co., where he was a partner. "W&J inspired a spirit of entrepreneurial approach to school life," Eaton, a former member of the W&J Board of Trustees, said. "It helped me figure out a creative way of getting into my own financial business." Eaton also is a leader in his hometown's chapter of United Way and a supporter of "Operation Comfort," a San Antonio-based group that supports wounded veterans. Kristin Ondecko Ligda '03 Just months after completing her residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Kristin Ondecko Ligda '03, M.D., is making a name for herself in the medical field. An anesthesiologist at UPMC Mercy, Ligda is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and Society for Education in Anesthesia. She attended the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine on a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholarship for Graduate Study, which provided her with $50,000 per year toward her medical degree. At VCU, she was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha--a medical honor society limited to less than 10 percent of medical students--and was named MVP for Internal Medicine Residency. Ligda, who was president of the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity at W&J, still remains dedicated to her alma mater, serving on the Alumni Executive Council and Pre-Health Advisory Board and giving several on-campus presentations for pre-health students. Also active in the Alumni Mentor Program, Ligda mentors biochemistry major Michael Liebert '12. "During the past two years, Kristin has offered extraordinary advice on everything, from what it takes to become a physician to the simplest advice on how to make the most of life," said Liebert, who is seeking admission into medical school after graduation. WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 23 W&J alumni A College on the Move b e i f Campus comes alive at Homecoming weekend Clad in red and black, Presidents representing the classes of 1943 to 2011 charged the Washington & Jefferson College campus on a late October weekend to create a memorable Homecoming celebration. President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., kicked off the weekend by addressing alumni at Friday evening's Homecoming dinner. "As you wander around, cheer on the football team and see your old friends, I hope that you will get a sense of the remarkable momentum on this campus," she said. "There is no question about it--W&J is a College on the move." Alumni got a taste of a College on the move while enjoying a jam-packed schedule of events that included two lectures, three sporting events and seven reunion gatherings. At the tailgate lunch, future Presidents had fun with crafts and balloons, and later, at the popular Fifth Quarter event, alumni posed with W&J props in the photo booth. Plans are under way for the next Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, set for Oct. 19-20.

I didn't anticipate the alumni relations program to be so helpful, but it's nice to have someone on the "other side" who can be your big sister or brother. Micala: I wanted a small class size and didn't want to be a lost face in the crowd. I also wanted to play soccer and go someplace where I would be challenged. I knew I would find that at W&J. Business administration majors Micala Priola '07 and Michael Harding '12 chose to attend Washington & Jefferson College because they wanted to be challenged outside the classroom. While Priola found her calling at Alexandre Stadium, leading her soccer team to winning records all four years, Harding discovered his passions across the globe, studying abroad in Japan, Ireland and Africa. When their paths crossed last year through the Alumni Mentor Program, the two connected on their shared adoration for their alma mater and the incredible opportunities W&J offers its students. Today, Priola and Harding share a thriving friendship, meeting on a monthly basis to discuss classes, careers and life after W&J. M ichae l Hard in g '12 Michael: I was nervous to speak in front of a lot of people but people, I was only there for 10 minutes when a couple approached me and talked like we were already friends. They had a genuine interest in me and what I am doing in school. What have you gotten out of the Alumni Mentor Program? Micala: The mentor program is a perfect fit for me, because I am able to help someone with a busy schedule like mine. Michael is awesome and so involved on campus-- I live vicariously through him, but also help him with anything he needs. Michael: I am lucky to have my parents to guide me, but now I have a mentor who not only has experience in the Pittsburgh work force, but has been in my shoes at W&J. How has W&J prepared you for the future? Micala: My education at W&J taught me that your average answer isn't good enough. You have to go above and beyond. When you are at work, you are expected to bring a unique idea to the table. Michael: It is nice to have exposure to professors who have worked in your intended profession. They can bring those experiences to the classroom. There also is a strong association of alumni and a lot of opportunities for internships and networking. What kind of advice do you give to and seek from each other? Micala: The best advice I can give is to keep a positive attitude. At the end of the day, your co-workers will want to work with someone who can communicate and stay upbeat. Michael: Everything! I go to her for small stuff, like how to dress for an event, to larger matters, like if I should go to graduate school or not. She is a catchall mentor--she can answer anything I throw at her. MY ADVICE TO W&J STUDENTS: What advice would you give to future W&J students? Michael: Travel. Go outside of your comfort zone, and study abroad during Intersession or apply for a Magellan Project. Micala: Pick a major that you want, and not what your parents want. At the end of the day, you will be working in your chosen profession. You have to like it. Test the waters of different majors and career paths to find what suits you best. "Test the waters of different majors and career paths." � MICALA PRIOLA '07 What would you tell a student applying for the mentor program? Micala: Mentors know nothing about you and aren't going to judge you. They will just give you an honest answer. Michael: Go into it with an open mind. It worked out tenfold for me. I found a great mentor and friend who has helped me in countless ways in preparing for the future. � ALYSSA VUKSON '12 "Go outside your comfort zone." � MICHAEL HARDING '12 You spoke to alumni and students about the Alumni Mentor Program at Homecoming. What was that like? Micala: It was a good way to promote the mentor program face to face. Michael and I are a younger match, which shows that not all alumni involved in the program are extremely established--anyone can help out. In Your Own Words: MENTOR POWER Whether they challenged you in the classroom, helped guide your career path, or answered your questions over coffee, W&J faculty members have a reputation for going the extra mile (or two) to ensure their students' success after graduation. When we asked you to tell us about your mentors at W&J, we weren't surprised that you filled our Facebook and Twitter pages with touching accounts of how professors have influenced your lives. Here are just some of the highlights. Dr. R. Kirk Wicker was one of the unsung heroes of the chemistry department. He had industry experience and always was there to help. � MICHAEL HENGELSBURG '91 Dr. A.B. Lee. His Intersession tour of the Middle East opened my eyes to the wider world and instilled in me a love of travel and culture. � MICHAEL BREVETTA '97 Dr. Todd Verdun. His classes challenged and encouraged like no other. His dedication to his craft inspired my future plans. � ALEXANDRA BRUECKNER '11 Dr. John Mark Scott and Dr. Bob Dodge were the first two professors I met over coffee the first day of my freshman year. The friendship that developed among us is still going strong today. � JOSHUA ANDY '04, PH.D. Dr. Robbie Iuliucci was and remains to be a positive force in my life and career. He emphasized that, while money is nice, doing what you love and aiding those you teach is more fulfilling. � JACOB HORNICK '10 Dr. Sam Fee.

Chat with any of his classmates from Washington & Jefferson College, and you are likely to hear the same description with the added quality of "determined." While at W&J, Settles kept it no secret that his dream was to move to Los Angeles and make it in the entertainment industry. With the support of W&J's Ellis Hyman Internship Award and Magellan Project, Settles took the first step toward his goal when he landed a summer internship with the Universal Music Group. "The internship was everything I imagined, plus more," the business administration major said. "It made me a part of who I am today, because it taught me to be flexible and adaptable to change." Today, Settles is back in Los Angeles with his cousin, Chelsea. Their move across the country last winter was documented by television cameras for the highly rated MTV show, which follows Chelsea as she tries to find her way in the fashion industry. Along for the journey, Settles is on hand to offer his support, honesty and laughter. "Moving was full of emotions. I was excited, because I would be in the city I wanted to live in with my best friend and cousin," Settles said. "However, I was afraid of not being able to accomplish what I sought to do." While Settles is unsure of what his exact job title will be in 10 or 20 years, he credits the W&J Magellan Project and Office of Career Services with directing him toward his passion. Today, he gives back to W&J as a volunteer and mentor, offering advice to students interested in pursuing an entertainment-related career. "The key is to not get discouraged," he said. "Sure, you may hear a thousand `no's,' but you have to keep going after your goal. One door definitely will open if you keep knocking." � KERRI DIGIOVANNI '09 Learn what more young alumni like Settles are doing at www.jayconnected.com/gold.

"He has been making important discoveries longer than most of his peers have been alive," wrote Jay Price, staff writer at The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C. A professor emeritus of materials science and engineering at North Carolina State University, Conrad has been retired since 1993, but he still shows up at the lab every day, writing papers and grant proposals. "It's what I love to do," he said. "I would feel at a loss without it." Among his most recent accomplishments is the publication of a book chapter on how to make soft metals like copper stronger than steel. He also wrote a grant proposal last year to improve the bullet-stopping ceramic plates in body armor worn by U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. This happened just before he won a grant to study improvement techniques for forging metals. With more than 450 scientific papers to his credit, Conrad is being honored as the 2012 recipient of a gold medal from ASM International. The medal, given to a scientist each year since 1943, honors his contributions to the teaching, research and administration of materials science and engineering. Professor emeritus at North Carolina State University, Hans Conrad continues to be recognized for his research long after his retirement. JOHN ROTTET, THE NEWS & OBSERVER German-born Conrad enrolled at Washington & Jefferson College in 1940, participating in a pre-engineering program before completing his bachelor's in metallurgical engineering at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. His career began during World War II when, working for Alcoa, he helped develop an aluminum alloy for use in aircraft that is still used in the aerospace industry today. While he has dedicated most of his career to the study of metals, he recently began exploring the field of ceramics, publishing papers that could revolutionize the industry. When asked how long his research will continue, Conrad told The News & Observer, "Every time you answer one question, you open up 10 other questions. It could take the rest of my life." 1946 E. Lee North released his 14th book, titled, "Run, Run, Run! The 1941 Diary of a Deaf Long Island Teenager." A longtime fan and historian of Presidents football, North also authored, "Battling the Indians, Panthers, and Nittany Lions: The Story of Washington & Jefferson College's First Century of Football, 1890-1990." 1952 Miles Durfey retired as clerk of the Ohio Court of Claims after 54 years of service to the state. His tenure spanned 10 presidents, nine Ohio governors and seven state chief justices. Beginning his government career in 1956, he joined the Ohio Air National Guard, earning two stars and the rank of major general. He then held various government legal jobs until being appointed to his former position in 1987. In retirement, Durfey and his wife, Eleanor, plan to spend time with their children and grandchildren. 1948 Learned "Dag" Bulman had the library and archives at the Morris County Historical Society in New Jersey named in his honor to thank him for 25 years of volunteer service. The archives in W&J's U. Grant Miller Library also are named in honor of Bulman. The Learned T. Bulman '48 Historic Archives and Museum houses items related to the College's history as well as a large collection of manuscripts and other materials related to U.S. history in the 18th and 19th centuries. Michael R. Zimmerman, Ph.D., was invited as a visiting professor at the University of Manchester's KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology. He is collaborating on a joint project between the KNH Centre and Natural History Museum in London titled, "Sir Grafton Elliot Smith and the Archaeological Survey of Nubia: Their Significance to the Palaeopathological Tradition." Zimmerman is an adjunct professor of anthropology and a consulting scholar at the Pennsylvania University Museum and an adjunct professor of biology at Villanova University. 1959 Ronald V. Pellegrini, M.D., joined the Ed Dardanell Heart and Vascular Center at Forbes Regional Hospital in Pittsburgh. Previously, he was chief of adult cardiac surgery at UPMC Passavant.

WASHINGTON & JEFFERSON COLLEGE 29 W&J class notes Religious leader at Harvard honored with portrait Joining an esteemed club of Harvard Divinity School's most inspirational leaders is Rev. Preston N. Williams '48, whose portrait now adorns a wall in the Braun Room at the University's Andover Hall. The portrait of Williams is part of the Harvard Foundation Portraiture Project, which aims to reflect the diversity of individuals who have served Harvard for at least a quarter century. As the Houghton Research Professor of Theology and Contemporary Change Emeritus, Williams has dedicated his 40-year career at Harvard to the study and teaching of Christian ethics, particularly as it relates to the African-American religious experience. Williams was pleased that the unveiling closely coincided with the opening of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial and anniversary of the historic 1963 civil rights march on Washington, D.C.

Tim Solobay joined State Reps. Brandon Neuman and Jesse White '00 (pictured left) at Washington & Jefferson College in September to announce that the College will receive $1 million toward renovations of the Dieter-Porter Life Sciences Building. Funded through the state's Redevelopment Capital Assistance Program, the money will help W&J modernize classrooms and research labs in the facility, which houses the departments of biology and psychology. Former Sen. J. Barry Stout '64, (pictured second from right) who also participated in the announcement, said the College has long helped to attract top-notch students to the southwestern Pennsylvania region. "Over the years, W&J has been a magnet for bright, young minds that stay in the region and contribute to the community," Stout said. In accepting the grant, President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., expressed her appreciation for the state's support of W&J's science programs. "With our newly renovated building, we'll be able to continue to educate doctors who serve the region, conduct groundbreaking research that attracts public and private funding, and expand our community outreach in science education," she said.

A member of the Presidents football team and business administration major from Mentor, Ohio, Thompson is a recipient of a scholarship established by Bica-Ross and her late husband, L. Clayton Ross '30. The permanent endowment provides financial aid every year to a student committed to pursuing a career in medicine or commercial enterprise. "For the fourth year in a row, Mrs. Bica-Ross' generous donation has helped further my education in business administration, for which I am deeply thankful," said Thompson. Also grateful to Bica-Ross is Sirianni, who added, "Violet has been a tremendous supporter of W&J students and our football program, and this is just another example of her generosity. Jimmy is a hard-working student-athlete and we are proud to have him as the recipient of this prestigious scholarship." Bica-Ross also enjoys spending time with the residents of Bica-Ross Hall, a suite-style dormitory for junior and senior students that she dedicated in her husband's memory. A member of the Old Main Society, Bica-Ross has included the College in her estate plans to help ensure W&J's future financial strength. Carla J. Vrsansky '82 Wabtec Corporation Peter F.

The senior committee encouraged 39 percent of the class, or 129 students, to participate in the initiative. W&J Trustees Charles T. Nason '68 and McClellan A. DuBois '70 generously matched the funds raised by the class to achieve a total gift of $4,500. "The Trustees' matching gifts inspired our senior class to give more and helped us to see the value in giving back to our College," senior committee member Katy Rowley '11 said. "Through this gift, we hope to inspire future gifts and cultivate philanthropy in the members of the class of 2011." The funds were used to purchase a bench next to Upper Class Residence Hall, help pay for upgrades to the U. Grant Miller Library, and assist with repairs to the 9/11 Memorial Fountain in front of the Burnett Center.

Adding that part of his motivation was personal, Ed Weingartner '71 saw the Class Cup as a tribute to his late classmate and college roommate, Don Brabson '71. "It was a labor of love," he explained. Accepting the award on behalf of the class of 1971 were Zeno Chicarilli '71, Bob Krupkin '71, Miles Simon '71, Sheers, and Weingartner. CLASS OF 1949 46% PARTICIPATION LEMOYNE ASSOCIATE Allen F.

Yoho '81 as a guest speaker in his environmental studies class during the fall term. Yoho, the chief commercial operations officer and senior vice president of Piedmont Natural Gas Co. in Charlotte, N.C., brings years of experience in the natural gas industry. He led a lively discussion regarding shale drilling and encouraged students to form their own opinions. "I was impressed with the students' understanding of the local impacts, both good and bad, and their questions concerning the development of natural gas from shale resources," Yoho said. "Being a native of western Pennsylvania, it was very interesting to hear the local perspective on what has become a significant national energy issue." Conversations with alumni provide W&J students with valuable opportunities to hear from leaders working in their fields of interest. "It was great to have a graduate who has become successful in a new and growing field come back to talk to us," Luke Schorr '12 said. "It really exemplifies the value of a liberal arts education."

One student, Donnelle Jageman '12 (pictured center), traveled to Delhi, India, where she helped provide disadvantaged women with counseling and skill-building classes to increase their self-sufficiency. Many of these opportunities are funded through initiatives like the award-winning Magellan Project, the Hugh Taylor Travel Awards, the Vira I. Heinz Program for Women in Global Leadership, and the Barbara Betler Greb and Edward Martin Greb Endowed Student International Travel Award Fund. In addition, support from the International Programs Fund helps to provide W&J students with regional cultural experiences and travel funds, awarding 30 students a year the chance to spend a semester abroad. "Our students consistently identify studying abroad as a life-changing experience," Traci Fruehauf, director of global education at W&J, said. "With the support of the International Programs Fund, more of our students have access to these transformational opportunities, which not only lead to unparalleled self-discovery, but also prepare them to contribute to a global community."

A political science major and executive member of the Black Student Union at W&J, Williams is now attending The College of William & Mary Law School. Parents like Williams' play an invaluable role at W&J. In addition to entrusting the College with their children's education, many go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of W&J students by providing the College with additional financial support. With the help of the Parents' Council, W&J received more than $55,000 from parents of current students during the 2010-11 fiscal year. The Council serves as a bridge of communication between W&J parents and the College's administration, faculty, students, alumni and friends. Members of the Council serve as spokespeople for the entire parent constituency and act as leaders in advising and financially supporting W&J. David and Corrine DiBenedetto, parents of David DiBenedetto '14, enjoy sharing their passion for W&J with parents of current students and prospective students. "The Council gives us an opportunity to stay involved, keep updated on campus activities and ensure that our son, David, is utilizing all that the College has to offer, including its outstanding career service opportunities," they said.

Bayline, associate professor of biology and director of the neuroscience program at Washington & Jefferson College, has been appointed the inaugural Highmark Professor in Health Science. The announcement was made by President Tori Haring-Smith, Ph.D., and Evan Frazier, Highmark's senior vice president of community affairs, at W&J's annual Convocation ceremony in September. "This endowed professorship helps ensure ongoing funding for a key faculty member, and provides programming and research support for that individual," Haring-Smith said. "It's an expression of respect for the quality of education provided at W&J." Due to the generosity of donors like Highmark, W&J faculty members receive important support for research, teaching and special projects. "This professorship will allow me to continue my research with students during the next several years by providing funding for students and research materials needed to investigate the regulation of neuromuscular development," Bayline said. Congratulating Bayline, pictured second from right, on this honor are Haring-Smith, Frazier and James C. White II, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty.

The Presidents defeated Geneva 24-7 in their first meeting with the Golden Tornadoes as a full member of the Presidents' Athletic Conference. Alumni and friends who support W&J athletic programs are members of the Pete Henry Society. Named after the late beloved coach and athletic director Wilbur F. (Pete) Henry '20, the Society provides W&J alumni and friends with a way to benefit today's student-athletes. Proceeds from the annual Pete Henry Society golf tournament in June help fund W&J's 24 athletic programs. Alumni also stay involved by serving as honorary co-captains at sporting events throughout the year. "Since its inception, our alumni have shown great support for the Pete Henry Society, which helps our 24 teams compete nationally in NCAA Division III," Dukett said.

Pinelli Sr. Suzanne Nard Swegal "An opportunity to research my interests" SCHOLARSHIP ALLOWS SENIOR TO STUDY CAREER OF LEGENDARY STUDENT-ATHLETE President Tori Haring-Smith welcomes family members of Charles "Pruner" West '24 to campus in September. The family attended a dedication ceremony in honor of West at the U. Grant Miller Library. Pictured from left are grandson Michael Nickens, Haring-Smith, daughter Linda West Nickens, and granddaughter Crystal Nickens. A legendary student-athlete at W&J, West led the Presidents' football team to their only Rose Bowl appearance in 1922 against the University of California, becoming the first African-American quarterback to play in the nation's oldest bowl game. To read more on West, turn to page 8. English major Allyson Gilmore '12 was able to research West's athletic and professional career as a 2011 recipient of The Teagle Diversity Scholarship. Supported by funding through The Teagle Foundation, the scholarship allows one student each year to pursue an independent summer project on a diversity-related issue under the guidance of a W&J faculty member. "The scholarship gave me an opportunity to research my interests outside of class, which I enjoyed," she said. "The highlight of the project was speaking with West's family and reconnecting them with the College. The experience meant a lot to me." Susan Jordan Walker Cheryl Voskamp Wineman DONORS James E.

How can paintings that have been damaged or darkened over time be restored without altering the artist's original intentions? In "The Chemistry of Art Conservation," Dr. Jennifer Logan and her students seek to answer this question in a first-year seminar course that blends science with art, history and philosophy. When you give to the W&J Fund, you give passionate professors like Dr. Logan the resources--from scalpels to goggles to fluorescent microscopes--to transform her classroom into a top-notch laboratory for W&J students. Make your moment today. Make your gift at washjeff.edu/give.
