A Love of Learning


fter teaching at some of the country’s most prestigious universities and receiving numerous awards, Nick Hayes ’69 (L) was delighted to return to Saint John’s as a Professor of History and the University Chair in Critical Thinking. “Saint John’s played a pivotal role in my education,” says Hayes. “I had brilliant

teachers here who inspired a love of learning. I was honored to know them in my youth and privileged to later call many of them my colleagues.” When Hayes and his wife, Marcia Gahagan, planned their estate, they made a will provision to fund three interests at Saint John’s that will benefit students for years to come: Scholarships in

honor of both Fr. Alberic Culhane ’52, OSB (center) and Fr. Hilary Thimmesh ’50, OSB (R), and a gift to the Saint John’s Pottery.

It’s your will.
