Thoughts from the President
Concordia alumnus Rev. Arden Malotky (’45) is an interesting fellow in many respects, not the least of which is that he has personally met all nine presidents of Concordia University, St. Paul. He was a very young teenager and student at Concordia Academy when he shoveled snow outside the home of the retired and significantly advanced-in-age first president, Rev. Dr. Theodore Buenger. Rev. Malotky has subsequently met the next eight presidents, including yours truly. I find that fascinating. I also find it fascinating that I am only the ninth president in the 118-year history of this institution. That speaks of steady leadership, indomitable fortitude and long-term commitment. Having served three Concordia presidents myself at various times during the past thirty years, I’ve seen a lot at this wonderful place; how it was, how we hoped it would be, and how it is. Now I’m most interested in what it will be in the future. Just as previous generations of leaders, we have enormous opportunities to prepare students for thoughtful and informed living, for dedicated service to God and humanity, and for the enlightened care of God’s creation, all within the context of the Christian Gospel. Individuals from both new immigrant populations and established multi-generational families, representing every race, creed, color and socioeconomic background are looking for the benefits of higher education. We offer those benefits here, enriched with the love of Jesus and His saving grace. We acknowledge, of course, that higher education today is fraught with challenges. The previous eight Concordia presidents had their own headaches and heartaches, and I had a ring-side seat for some of them. Still, there is no place I would rather be. I hope that you, and the thousands of friends and alumni who share an appreciation for Concordia, feel the same and will partner with us to reach for yet-to-be-attained heights. I look forward to meeting or getting reacquainted with you at Homecoming 2011. You are a blessing to us and I hope we continue to be a blessing to you!
Rev. Tom Ries, President Concordia University, St. Paul
Ries’ Road On a sunny June morning, the 10 a.m. chime of Concordia’s Chapel bells echoed across campus. A sturdy black-suited man walked into Concordia’s Graebner Memorial Chapel and settled into his seat for daily chapel. Resting in the solid oak chair beside him was a mid-size black and light blue duffle bag, the contents of which gave evidence to an affection for Concordia that spans more than three decades.
On his first day as Concordia University, St. Paul’s ninth president, Rev. Tom Ries toted in his duffle bag a shiny new Golden Bears football helmet, a gift from his former staff at the Lutheran Church— Missouri Synod Foundation. It had been clear to them that Ries’ fondness for Concordia never wavered. The CU helmet now is perched in his office next to a Green Bay Packers helmet—evidence of his Wisconsin upbringing. Rev. Tom Ries, the youngest of four, had not even begun kindergarten when he felt the call to the pastoral ministry. As the son of a third-generation pastor, the notion to follow a family tradition of ministry was influential in determining his vocation. Throughout his school years, the youngster consistently demonstrated strong academic and leadership abilities but he struggled long and hard to fulfill his athletic aspirations. He was “undersized and definitely under-talented,” a fact he jokingly admits that many now find hard to believe. “Through very hard work and a growth spurt in my late high school years,” Ries said, “I eventually earned varsity letters in high school and college and was named captain of a number of teams on which I played.” Ries continued to develop his leadership capabilities throughout his preparation for the pastoral ministry at Concordia Senior College, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis and Concordia Lutheran Church, San Antonio. Dr. Guido Merkens, Ries’ vicarage supervising pastor and mentor, recognized Ries’ talents and identified him as someone who would fill significant leadership roles during his ministry. Not long after starting in his call as Assistant Pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church, a 1,500-member congregation in St. Francis, Minn., Ries met and quickly came to admire Concordia’s fifth president, Rev. Dr. Gerhardt Hyatt. Their association was influential in beginning the long-standing and lifechanging relationship between Concordia and its future president. Ries eagerly began working for Rev. Dr. Hyatt in 1982 in what he describes as the opportunity of a lifetime that changed the course of his vocation. “I likely would have continued to use my organizational leadership and administration gifts in congregational ministry, had Rev. Dr. Hyatt not contacted me about the administrative position at Concordia,” said Ries.
As Vice President for College Relations and Assistant to the President, Ries managed the Admission, Financial Aid, Public Relations and Alumni Relations offices. He also oversaw the construction of the $2 million Hyatt Village residence hall and presided over its dedication. Just three years in to his career at Concordia, Ries knew what the Lord had in store for him. “I believe the Lord is confirming for me a future in higher education,” said then 30-year-old Ries to Concordia’s student newspaper “The Sword.” He took an educational leave of absence to pursue his MBA degree at the University of Minnesota to better prepare himself for more responsibility in the field. While earning his MBA, Ries became the Founding and Senior Pastor at Messiah Lutheran Church in Lakeville, Minn. “My greatest joys in ministry, in addition to preaching, were financial stewardship, organizational leadership and capital construction,” he said. Ries led capital campaigns for three construction projects totaling $3 million and the congregation grew by an astonishing 500 percent. During that time, the church helped Ries complete a career assessment program which, not surprisingly, identified his strengths as leading and managing finances. Ironically though, the top two career interests that emerged were military officer and accountant. Since he was past the ideal age to join the military, Ries decided to give accounting a try. In 1995 he joined Howard Schultz and Associates in Bloomington, Minn., where he led a team of accounting professionals that audited accounts payable systems for large corporations, achieving $6 million annually in recoveries of overpayments for clients. “[This position] was a major step in helping me hone my financial management skills,” Ries said. Higher education resurfaced for Ries in 1999 when asked by Concordia’s eighth president, Rev. Dr. Robert Holst, to consider a call to become the University’s Vice President for Finance. Ries had been feeling the Holy Spirit calling him in that direction; he accepted the position. During his five years as Vice President, Ries continued to refine his financial management skills, implementing operational and financial management principles that led to a 50 percent growth in the University’s net assets and construction of the $8 million Library Technology Center dedicated in 2003. The Lord continued to prepare him for leadership. Ries accepted a call in 2004 to be the President of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Foundation. During his seven years of service at the Foundation, Ries guided the organization to greater operational and financial strength. He learned the great potential and responsibility of a presidential post, along with the intricacies of gift development and planning.
Tom and Susie (Otte,’79) Ries, pictured with their three daughters and son-in-law, have been married for 31 years and live in Burnsville, Minn. Susie, who worked in the CSP Admission Office in the 80s, now owns and operates a residential interior design firm, Susie Ries Interiors, Inc. Jenny, pictured third from right, is the youngest and lives in Brooklyn, NY where she is the marketing director for a small family-owned clothing company. Elizabeth, pictured fourth from right, is the oldest and co-hosts KSTP’s mid-day show, Twin Cities Live. Katie, pictured on the left with her husband Adam, is the second oldest and lives in Schaumburg, Ill., where she is a buyer for Sears.
“I am very fortunate to have been able to combine into one career my love of theology and the church with organizational and financial leadership,” Ries said, “and can only explain this as the Holy Spirit putting me in the right places at the right time.” The Holy Spirit had him in the right place again when the search began for Concordia’s ninth president. Having already served Concordia for eight years, Ries says that part of him feels like he never left. He has returned to the place where, early in his career, great mentors influenced his leadership philosophy. “Under President Hyatt’s leadership and that of others, including Dr. Lou Mueller, Dr. Loma Meyer, Dean Walter Sohn and Mrs. Florence Marken, Concordia was a place that wanted to do things well,” Ries said. “I learned a great deal from these experienced leaders about having a big vision, cultivating a caring community and exercising sound financial management.” Reflecting on his own big vision for Concordia, Ries emphasizes increasing the number of students who persist to graduation, becoming stronger financially, and delivering marketable and high quality programs within the context of the Christian Gospel as priorities.
Beyond the numbers, Ries cares about cultivating a caring Christian community. He once read a sign outside a church that said, “Be kind. Everyone you meet is carrying a burden,” advice that resonated with him. “People have great potential, but often have to deal with a lot of problems in their lives,” he said. “I’ve learned to balance setting high aspirations for myself and the people in my organization, with being sensitive to the personal cares, concerns and passions of those around me.” If the community is reminded of God’s love for them as often as Ries was reminded by his parents, it too can be more secure and confident. “That simple reality changed me and continues to be the cornerstone of my life,” Ries said. “It has made me a secure and confident person and helps me, in turn, to believe in others.” His confidence is also conveyed in financial matters. “I have a real passion for Concordia and I have the ability to bring to it financial and organizational stability,” Ries said. “When that is achieved, then an organization is in a better position to pursue its mission even more vigorously.” Ries hopes that one day people can look back at his presidential era and say that Concordia “dreamed big about making a difference in the lives of people while having the fiscal and operational discipline to achieve those dreams.”
Ries stepped in and coached the offensive line for the Concordia Comets Football team in 1983 after a position opened unexpectedly just days before the season began. Ries and fellow coaches led the team to a winning season.

Joy (Spitzack, ’02) Anderson Named Alumni Council President Fellow Alumni, I am Joy Anderson, your newly-elected Alumni Council President. I volunteered to help with many Homecoming celebrations since graduating in 2002 and joining the Council in 2009 seemed like a natural transition for me. It is another way for me to give back to the University. In July 2010, I began serving as Council Vice President. With Council President Clarence Jones (’92, ’02), finishing his term, I was asked to step into the position. Having just celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Alumni Association, I’m really excited to serve as president and work with the Council as we look to the next 100 years.
Joy (Spitzack, ’02) Anderson Major: Theatre Career: Office Manager at Hokanson, Gunderson & Co., Ltd Favorite campus spot: Theatre Lobby Summer job while in college: Counselor at Camp Omega Church: Holy Cross Lutheran, Prior Lake, Minn.
At recent Council meetings we have discussed what things we are proud of when it comes to having a degree from CSP and what makes us want to give back to the University through our time, talents and treasures. I often joke that my four-year Theatre degree got me my current job that is not theatre related. Even though I joke about it, it’s also one of the things I’m proud of when it comes to my degree. My boss chose me over others that had two year business degrees but he felt my having a B.A. was more important. Maybe you have a similar story. I hope you as alumni are able to find your point of pride in your CSP degree. If you haven’t been on campus in a while, I encourage you to come back. Homecoming is the last full week in September, the Theatre Department just announced an exciting 2011-12 season, and the women’s Volleyball team will defend their NCAA Division II title and work toward a 5-peat this fall. Consider volunteering at Concordia’s Minnesota State Fair booth, a Concordia Café recruitment event or being a CSP representative in your congregation. Stay in the loop by “liking” the Alumni Association page on Facebook. I hope the next time you are on campus I will get to talk to you about your Concordia story and what makes you proud to be a Concordia alum! Yours, Joy (Spitzack, ’02) Anderson
Academy Alumnus, Rusty Seltz (’67), Named CSP’s VP for Advancement Paul “Rusty” Seltz (H.S. ’67), J.D., MBA, began his post as the Vice President for University Advancement at Concordia in July. As VP, he is responsible for the overall vision, supervision, planning and implementation for the University’s Development, Alumni Relations, Church Relations and Government Relations efforts. Seltz is a member of the President’s Cabinet and provides leadership to the Board of Regents Advancement Committee. “We are extremely pleased to have Rusty’s experience and leadership skills in gift development to guide Concordia’s advancement efforts,” said President Tom Ries. “His professional abilities and values will lead the university in meeting the growing fiscal demands of higher education and ensuring the overall fiscal health of the University so students can receive an excellent and affordable education.” Seltz is a seasoned advancement professional, having worked in development for nearly a decade managing and leading fundraising teams while cultivating long-term relationships that led to high-level financial support. Most recently, he worked as Executive Director of University Leadership Relations in the Advancement office at Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Ind., where he played a significant role in the design, execution and success of its largest-ever capital campaign to build the institution’s endowment and fund capital initiatives. Previously, Seltz worked in business internationally and practiced law. He holds juris doctorate and bachelor’s of Business Administration degrees from Valparaiso University and a master of Business Administration degree from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul. Seltz graduated from Concordia Academy in 1967. “I highly respect the strong team in place at Concordia and appreciate the University’s mission,” said Seltz. “I enjoy working with the team to garner major support so we can continue to educate students in the context of the Christian Gospel.”
CSP to Honor Five Alumni for Distinguished Service Concordia is proud to present this year’s Alumni Distinguished Service Awards to Gerald Fiechtner (H.S. ’55), Stephen O’Hara (’02, CB294), Rev. Dr. Luther B. Otto (H.S. ’55, J.C. ’57), Barbara Porter (’03, CM019) and Fredrick Voigtmann (H.S. ’58, J.C. ’60). These alumni receive the award because of their outstanding and exceptional professional achievement while upholding Concordia’s ideals in their profession, the community and the church.
While leading the family-owned and founded business, NODAK Supply Co., in Fargo, N.D., for more than 20 years, Gerald Fiechtner was very involved in the community and church. The Fiechtners were charter members of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, Fargo, N.D., where Gerald served as its first organist, led the choir’s bass section and provided transportation to church members in need. Gerald served on the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation board for eight years and was a member of the Moorhead Country Club for many years. He is a member of the community service organization, Fargo-Moorhead Cosmopolitan Club. During his 16 years of retirement living in Henderson, Nev., Gerald assisted residents of a long term care facility during weekly outings. They were also members of Christ Lutheran in Boulder City and later joined Grace Lutheran Church in Henderson. Now happily retired, the Fiechtners reside permanently in Fargo and remain avid supporters of Lutheran schools and churches.
As a branch manager for US Bank, Stephen O’Hara is known to practice servant leadership in all his endeavors. His personal approach and commitment to his work and community have earned him the respect of colleagues, clients and local leaders. Stephen was recently nominated and elected to serve as Director of Service Projects for his local Rotary Club. He also spearheaded a community leadership group, The Twin Cities Professional Network, while also supporting Project for Pride in Living. “Steve’s ‘can-do’ attitude and people skills set him above the rest of the field,” said Stephen’s colleague, Jim Plante.
Before retiring, Rev. Dr. Luther B. Otto enjoyed a long and impactful career as a pastor, professor, sociologist and researcher. His research and programming greatly influenced many organizations including Boys’ Town Research Center in Omaha, Neb., Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Otto presented his research across the United States and abroad; was a frequent consultant to federal, state and private agencies; and wrote multiple books, refereed articles and chapters. He was active across a broad spectrum of professional associations and boards, working to improve the lives of at-risk youth, young adults and the aging. Some of his many contributions to higher education and the Lutheran church include his service as head of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work at North Carolina State University; as campus pastor at UW-Madison where he worked diligently to preserve Campus Ministry’s presence in the heart of the campus; and by conceptualizing and implementing a program for ministerial recruitment and scholarships.
As Assistant Dean for Academic and Student Affairs at Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minn., Barbara Porter has helped lead the school to becoming one of the nation’s most diverse medical schools. In addition to her commitment to diversity within higher education, Porter is active in her church and community, having served on the boards for many organizations including Boys & Girls Club of Rochester, the Rochester Symphony Orchestra, the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota and the Rochester Diversity Council. She is also the president-elect of her local chapter of Black Data Processing Associates, a non-profit professional organization dedicated to helping high school students gain knowledge, skills and competitive experiences in Information Technology.
Fredrick Voigtmann has enjoyed an illustrious career as a lawyer, serving first in the Air Force and then in private practice. Aside from his practice, Voigtmann is a strong supporter of Lutheran education. He has demonstrated his support through service on the boards for the National Capital Area Lutheran High School Association; Concordia School for Special Education, Macau; Concordia International School, Shanghai; Asia Lutheran Education Association, Hong Kong; and Lincoln American School, Taiwan. “He is an excellent example of a Christian servant, vigorously making known the love of Christ Jesus through his words and actions,” said Curt Larson, Concordia International School, Shanghai’s Chief Financial Officer.
A celebration will be held in honor of these alumni during Homecoming, Friday, Sept. 23. For more information on the award or to nominate someone, visit ave.csp.edu/awards.
Residence Life Center Renamed Holst Hall The Residence Life Center has been renamed Holst Hall in honor of 20-year president Rev. Dr. Robert Holst (H.S. ’54, J.C. ’56) the Board of Regents announced at Holst’s retirement service on Wednesday, May 11. Board of Regents member Rev. Tom Evans said the three-story, 300bed, apartment-style facility built in 2008 inherently fosters the kind of Christian community Holst promoted throughout his presidency. “He was a president of the people and his heart has always been for the students,” said Evans. “What better way to honor Dr. Holst—his vision and legacy— by renaming the heart of the campus after him.” Holst is humbled to have a building named in his honor. “I hope my name on that building enables people to celebrate what God has done here through so many wonderful people,” said Holst, who retired May 31 after having served the church for 49 years.

2010-2011 Benefactor Report
The mission of Concordia University, St. Paul, a university of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, is to prepare students for thoughtful and informed living, for dedicated service to God and humanity and for the enlightened care of Godâ€™s creation, all within the context of the Christian Gospel. ave.csp.edu
CSP Fiscal Year 2011 Financial Report As the 2010-2011 fiscal year closes at Concordia, we are pleased to report the fiscal state of our ministry is stable and poised for growth. As a tuition-driven institution, the health of our University is heavily dependent on our ability to attract, retain and graduate students. A number of factors make this challenging, some of which include our high percentage of first-generation students, a decreasing number of high school graduates in Minnesota and an ever-increasing demand for need-based financial aid. Despite the challenges, we achieved our budgeted operational surplus this fiscal year. As our financial highlights and community accomplishments below make evident, we have much for which to thank God. We are especially grateful for those who supported us in our educational ministry. Your continued support will help us grow and provide more students a quality education in the context of the Christian Gospel.

Laura: Doctor of Chiropractic at AcuChiropractic Wellness Center, Eagan, Minn. Why we put Concordia in our will: We met at Concordia and both of us had a wonderful experience. We put CSP in our will to continue the legacy of a Christian Education and to pass our legacy on to future generations. And, as parents of three young children, we have the peace of mind knowing that everything will be taken care of according to our wishes. How we put Concordia in our will: We found the entire process to be very straight forward. We worked with a Christian attorney who attends our church and specializes in estate planning and estate and trust administration. During the process, we made it known that we wanted to include CSP. Once the will was finalized, we communicated our wishes to Concordia. Our prayer for Concordia’s future: That it is able to provide a loving Christian environment to raise Godly men and women to work in, and further His Kingdom.

Rev. Michael Dorner Career: Concordia University, St. Paul Vice President for Finance and Assistant Professor teaching undergraduate Accounting courses Year started: 1998 Favorite memory of helping a student: My favorite memories from the classroom are seeing the students beginning to understand the accounting material. Accounting tends to be a subject that some students believe they will never understand, but somehow by the end of the semester understanding has replaced the fear. Why I support CSP: My desire to support CSP has grown through the years as I have reflected on my own education and life experiences. Much of what I have done in life has been the result of having various degrees. Having a college degree opens doors to opportunities. Seeing the difference my degrees have made for me caused me to think that there are many CSP students who come from a background not all too different from my own and now I have the opportunity to help them in the same way that others helped me. Plus, you have a university education provided “in the context of the Christian Gospel” which is definitely worthy of support. I look at my support of CSP as a way of giving thanks for the people who helped me with my college education and now I am helping a new generation of students.

Theodore (’81) & Sharon (Reske, ’80) Hinck Majors: Ted: Director of Evangelism Outreach Sharon: Director of Christian Education Careers:Ted: Managing Producer at Twin Cities Public Television Sharon: Published Novelist Favorite CSP Memories: Ted: Band tour with Prof. Norris, infamous canoeing on Lake Concordia and working in the AV department with Dr. Burkart. Sharon: Being involved in theatre, and the various directors who encouraged me, particularly in choreography work. Dr. Kolb’s theology classes, and his “Why do you want to know,” approach to sticky theological questions. I continue to quote him to friends even after all these years. The couple: We loved the small group married-student fellowship we were part of during our last two years at CSP. Why we support CSP: We believe in the value of Christian education and the Lutheran tradition. Our most recent gift was made in honor of Ted’s mom, Verna Hinck, who shared the same values and loved attending various Bible classes with President Holst and President Hyatt. So when she passed away last fall, it made sense to give to CSP.

David and Suzanne Marvosh Parents of Michael Marvosh ’06 Our favorite memory of Michael attending Concordia: His theatrical performances, especially Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Also, we enjoyed seeing him conduct the orchestra at graduation ceremonies. The most important thing Michael learned while at Concordia: He developed his God given talents, those he was aware of and those he was unaware of. Why we support Concordia: To support students as they learn how to get along with others. And, to support students in an environment that encourages them to pursue altruism in their lives.

Anna Barton (’11) Major: Marketing How I plan to impact the world: Be ethical in all my business practices. How Concordia has helped me prepare to impact the world: The professors have taught us what is right and wrong and they’ve shared realworld examples to help us better understand how to act ethically. Why I will support CSP: Concordia has prepared me so much for life. I’d like to see it grow and change for the better to benefit students and I know my contributions will be essential to that growth.
