President’s Message As I review the last few issues of the Pierce Radius, there is a clear theme in the “President’s Message” that I have penned. Change. It is, perhaps, a phenomenon like no other in its ability to elicit excitement and anticipation, all the while causing great concern and resistance. Regardless of what change elicits in us, it is the only permanence in life, if we believe Heraclitus. But change, nonetheless, is coming to Franklin Pierce. With the extraordinary pressures from outside of Higher Education to contain costs, enhance revenues, and provide students with a marketable education, and the traditions of American Higher Education that so many of us cherish but that eschew change, we are challenged to evince a vision that honors our traditions while acknowledging the need to change. Amidst that tension, however, lies an opportunity for Franklin Pierce University to continue to educate women and men to be leaders of conscience while preparing them for the world of work. Such an integration of liberal arts education with professional aspirations is the goal of the General and Liberal Education curriculum that was implemented in Fall 2012. Through our academic offerings, we provide an education that matters to people who value the knowledge that comes from liberal learning and the opportunity that arises from a professional credential. I think this is what defines a liberal arts education for the 21st century. The coming year will also bring a transition in the President’s Office. In early August, I informed Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Michael C.J. Fallon, that I will resign my position as president at Franklin Pierce University as the school year draws to a close. This timing will allow the University to conduct a national search to recruit top talent to the institution to ensure its continuing growth and vitality. When I accepted the Pierce Presidency I expected to be here between five to seven years— seven years being the average length for a private college president today. Now in my sixth year, and following discussions with my family, I have decided it is time to seek new challenges and opportunities. While I will continue to work hard to see that the plans we have are put in place, I will also work to provide Pierce’s next president with the momentum he or she deserves to lead this institution. All of this work presupposes the support from my colleagues around the University, from supporters who believe that Pierce offers an education that matters, and, most importantly, from alumni who know the value of a Pierce education and want others to realize the same brand of education they have. As you enjoy the autumn season, I ask you to think about Franklin Pierce and how you can support our current students. Would you be willing to serve on an alumni panel to speak with students about your career field? Can you attend a lecture on campus to show how our alumni come back to campus? Will you cheer on the Raven athletes as they demonstrate great athletic skills? And will you make a contribution to The Pierce Fund to assure continued opportunities for today’s students? I look forward to seeing you in the near future and to hearing your stories about how Pierce matters to you. Ex Umbris Ad Lucem,

Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity The FBI Motto Rings True for Brad Arena ’14 rad Arena ’14 is going places. He is a bright, focused young man who is passionate about criminal justice issues. Couple that with an ability to seize the moment and capitalize on opportunities, and he is unstoppable! Brad graduated in May with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and headed straight to a job with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Boston.

The Path Opens Brad became interested in criminal justice at a young age because his neighbor was a Boston Police Detective and encouraged him to explore the field. At Franklin Pierce University, the Career Center staff starts working with students from the day they step onto campus to start thinking of career paths. Brad took advantage of the career panels that the Center offers each academic year; he attended one during his sophomore year that would alter the course of his life. It was at that career panel that he was introduced to John T. Burke Jr. ’66, who spoke of his life as an FBI agent, along with several other alumni who spoke about their chosen professions in various fields. Brad had been interested in the FBI before, but had not been sure whether that was the track he wished to pursue versus pursuing a career as a local police officer. “I never knew anyone who was in the FBI until that career panel,” Brad says. “I learned so much.” Among other things, Brad learned about the process of applying for a position with the FBI, which often begins with a stint as an intern. John encouraged Brad to apply for an internship, which he did. Then John got on the phone to the Bureau to offer his personal recommendation for Brad.

By Lisa Murray, Editor

Agents went to Franklin Pierce, Brad’s former employers, high school, neighbors, family, and friends. The process took an entire school year. “It was very stressful,” says Brad. “The interviews were pretty hard – very intense.” He found out at the end of his junior year that he was accepted for an FBI internship in their Boston office. The internship began June 1, 2013. Brad interned at the Boston office Monday through Friday throughout the summer, and then every Wednesday at the Bedford, N.H., Resident Agency throughout the following academic year. He was assigned to the bank robbery task force and performed such tasks as background checks and assessing geographic areas that were hardest hit by robberies. Brad also had the opportunity to do paperwork on two major trials – Whitey Bulger and the Boston Marathon – where he got to witness the trials and meet a few Assistant United States Attorneys.

Meaningful Mentors Brad credits much of his success to the individual attention he received in his Criminal Justice program at Franklin Pierce. “Every professor knew all of our names and wanted us to succeed,” says Brad. “They go the extra mile. We did a lot of mock interviews, and I learned how to present myself. It was so helpful.” But John Burke stands out as the paragon of mentorship in this young man’s life. “I want to do this for someone else, since he did this for me,” says Brad. “I’m very thankful to him.”

“I credit everything to him,” Brad says humbly. “If he wasn’t at that career panel and hadn’t picked up the phone, I wouldn’t have applied or gotten the interview. On paper I looked like everyone else. Getting that recommendation was key. It got my application to the top of a stack of hundreds.” Brad called John several times throughout the interview process to give him updates, and John continued to encourage him.

Steep Climb! The road to becoming an FBI intern is an arduous one. Brad was interviewed by three special agents, followed by an oral board interview, drug test, and polygraph. Then came a substantial background investigation.

WHAT A RIDE! David McGraw '79 Treats Us to a Tour of Harley Heaven By Lisa Murray, Editor

Taking to the road unencumbered, a beautiful piece of machinery at one’s fingertips. Freedom. David McGraw ’79

loved the look and feel of a motorcycle all the way back to his days at Franklin Pierce when he rode around the back roads and trails of the Monadnock region. At the time, he did not imagine that his affinity for motorcycles would become a love affair that would shape his life’s work. David is now renowned in the world of antique motorcycle and car restoration, and has restored more than 55 motorcycles for his own personal collection of vintage bikes. And not just any bikes; almost all of them are Harley Davidsons.

The Road Begins\ \

Shortly after graduating from Franklin Pierce, David restored a blue Harley and then rode a 1967 BSA Lightning to California to join his brother, who was living on the West Coast. The restoration work on the Harley was a defining experience for David, sparking a long-abiding interest in rebuilding antique bikes. David’s time in California was cut short when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, so he returned to the East Coast where his parents lived to offer his support. It was at this time that he planted his own roots. David started an antique car and bike business with Bob Canning, who remains his partner to this day. The business was started in a quaint town on Cape Cod, where his family spent their summers. David was first enamored with antique English bikes, but after spending more time on Harley Davidsons, his true passion took hold; David made the decision to collect Harleys, and he has never turned back. “I look for the rarest models” David said. “They are usually all in pieces when I get them.” David works on four or five bikes at a time. He is a treasure-trove of information on where and when each bike was raced, who rode them, and what features differentiate each model. He credits David Coffin, former CEO of Dexter Corporation, with serving as a life mentor. “I learned so much from him about how to live,” David said. Not long after he started his business, Mr. Coffin hired him to fix his cars. The ensuing relationship of mentorship and friendship was central to David’s life. Mr. Coffin passed away in 2012. David remains full of gratitude, admiration, and affection for this man, whose values and life knowledge continue to inspire him. David also speaks with great respect about his father Donald C. McGraw Jr. and mother Anne McGraw. “Mom made it 24 years after her initial breast cancer diagnosis, when she was given six months to live,” David said. “I called her ‘The Ten’ – her hair and makeup were always perfect. Mom was very philanthropic – a true patron of the arts.”

Harley Memorabilia . . .

. . . on the walls of David’s motorcycle collection.

Vintage Harleys! →

A 1939 Crocker, one of the few non-Harley motorcycles in David’s collection. Only 60 Crockers were produced, and only 40 are known to still be in existence. The Crocker was viewed as a serious competitive threat to the Harley line. Intense competitive pressures forced the Crocker Motorcycle Company out of business.

A 1936 Knucklehead Harley – the holy grail of antique Harley collections! This bike was the first oil recirculating engine produced by Harley. Other defining elements include 4-speed transmission with suicide shifter, dash speedometer, and foot clutch. This bike set the styling for all future Harley bikes. There were only 2,000 made in 1936.

A 1927 Road Racer, which Harley enthusiasts have nicknamed a "pea shooter." Harley Davidson only made eight of these bikes in 1927. David is aware of one other that is still in existence. This bike took David five years to restore and is completely original.


The blue Harley that David built from scratch after graduating from Franklin Pierce.

Anne McGraw and son David ’79.

Family values are clearly important to David, who cherishes both his family of origin, and his wife and three children, Elizabeth, Alexandra, and David Jr. His wife Melissa must have had more than an inkling of what their shared life journey would hold when David showed up for their wedding on the blue Harley to the left! They have a beautiful A 1939 Studebaker Coup Express with waterfall home on the Cape, filled grill, straight 6 cylinder, and 90 horsepower. David fully restored this classic vehicle, one of with an assortment of family only 900 produced. heirlooms and motorcycle collectibles, including one full-sized motorcycle set high above their family room. David Jr. followed his father’s footsteps to Franklin Pierce, graduating last May. He plans to follow his own dreams in the field of criminal justice. But at the time of this writing, father and son had plans to travel together with a cadre of friends to the biggest bike rally in the world in Sturgis, S.D., during the summer of 2014.

The Road Continues David plans to restore and collect Harley Davidsons indefinitely, and even dreams of opening his own Harley Davidson museum someday. He has collected some of the rarest Harley Davidson motorcycles in the world, including several not owned by the Harley Davidson Company itself! One of the unique features of David’s collection is that virtually all of the bikes start, run, and can be taken on the road. “I like the art of the deal,” David said, with respect to collecting. “The most fun part is the chase and the people you meet – so many fun, crazy people! But all my motorcycle friends are also the most family-valuebased people that I know. They would do whatever you need; they’re loyal.” If David serves as an example, Harley folks are also generous.

The Italians: Twelve ‘Italians’ are in David’s collection. These are Harley Davidsons made during a relatively brief time in the company’s history, when some were produced in Italy.

David recounted how an older man, Frank Antonelli, had come to his place to inquire about a bike he had for sale. Upon conversation, they discovered that the bike was one that Frank had owned many years earlier. The price of the bike proved too high for Frank, but David felt that he should be reunited with something that had meant so much to him. David insisted on giving the motorcycle to him despite Frank’s protests; they finally agreed that upon Frank’s death, the bike would go back to David. That initial encounter began a rich friendship that lasted decades, until Frank passed away. The bike is once again in David’s collection.

David, who was a business major at Franklin Pierce, recalled his college days. “There was so much to do there,” he said, “between hiking Mt. Monadnock and Mt. Washington, skiing, canoeing, and going on excursions to Keene and Boston. And it was just fun to generally get out and explore.” And yes, he usually did that on the back of a motorcycle.

Academics

The Psychology Department: Enduring & Versatile graduation in fields such as occupational therapy, human services, social work, child advocacy, and business, to name a few. One of the key components of the psychology program is the requirement to do an internship or thesis; most students choose to do an internship. Depending on a student’s interest, internships may occur in places like jails, therapeutic horse farms, camps, or rehabilitation centers. “One of the best parts of an internship is exposing the student to the people who perform those jobs professionally,” says Dr. Kohler. “They get to try the job on and witness people in the field firsthand before deciding on what discipline they definitely want to pursue, or what advanced degree might best suit them.”

The Psychology Department at Franklin Pierce University has always been popular, with lots of students choosing to major in the subject, and many students choosing psychology classes as electives. Recent years have demonstrated that its popularity continues to grow. The reason for this may be obvious: people are interesting! Associate Professor of Psychology Emlee C. Kohler also attributes some of the recent rise in interest in psychology to the plethora of television shows that touch on psychological issues, sparking heightened interest in the subject in the public at large.

A quick peek at a handful of recent graduates illustrates the varied paths that psychology students pursue. Some have taken more traditional paths in counseling or related fields. Latazewanna Pierre ’10 received her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University, works at Merrimack Valley Counseling Association, and has a goal of eventually earning a doctoral degree in psychology. Ashley Welch ’12 entered Franklin Pierce at age 17 with a desire to work with autistic children; she was accepted into the Ph.D. program at Antioch and is currently on her way to realizing that dream. Jennifer Croce ’10 is expressing her psychology ambitions working for Emergency Mobile Psychiatric Services for The Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut.

“Psychology is a good general major,” says Dr. Kohler, “preparing students for interacting with people on many levels, putting them in good stead for jobs in a variety of disciplines.” Psychology students often choose psychology as a major with the basic idea of wanting to help people; they leave four years later with a solid understanding of what that means on a much broader level. Franklin Pierce graduates in psychology are not only pursuing specialized study in graduate school but are also getting jobs upon

Other psychology students have used their degree as entry points into other fields of interest. As Professor Davina Brown noted, “One of the things that impresses me about many of our psychology students is how successful they have become with their psychology degree, but not necessarily doing counseling or traditional social work.” Rendi Bolton ’00 received a Master of Public Health degree after graduating from Franklin Pierce and works at the Veteran’s Administration in Bedford, Mass.

Krysten Guadagno Evans ’98 was the director of “Dress for Success” in Manchester, N.H. and also worked closely on the Obama campaign. Matt Cogswell ’99 became an instructor of Writing and Theater at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, Mass. The career choices of Franklin Pierce psychology students bear witness to the fact that the University’s strong liberal arts foundation allows students to explore their own individuality and interests, and translates to fulfillment in their professional careers upon graduation: Shawn Driskell ’03 is a protective services social worker for the State of New Hampshire. Lisa Bengiovanni ’12 is a client relations specialist for Skyrocket Ventures (computer software) in Los Angeles. Dr. Rachel Kimball ’10 received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from The School of Health Sciences at The Sage Colleges. Meghan Flynn ’10 completed her Master’s degree in Sports Management at Springfield College and is the coordinator of intramural sports and summer programs in the Department of Campus Recreation at UMass, Lowell.

People are interesting, as are their pursuits! Franklin Pierce University has outstanding psychology faculty, with excellent professors on both sides of the psychological “track” – experimental and clinical. Drs. Davina Brown, Bill Flynn, Craig Platt, Emlee Kohler, and Jennie Brown serve the department full-time, with Rob Koch, Forbes Farmer, and George Ruppel teaching additional courses. Dr. Davina Brown remarked, “As a department, we work so well together that my colleagues have also become my friends.” The program is compliant with the American Psychological Association’s guidelines, and went through a full program review within the last year to ensure that its curriculum continues to offer a firm foundation in the field of study. Human behavior is fascinating and offers endless opportunities for research, clinical practice, and broad application to many career paths. The vibrancy of the Psychology Department at Franklin Pierce is a fine example of that!

Creating a Life in Film: Jack Serino ’90 By Christina Young, Director of The Center for Engagement

braham Lincoln once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” For many of the students who attended Franklin Pierce during the time of Walter Peterson’s presidency, creating one’s future wasn’t just an option, it was an encouraged expectation. During the 80s when Jack Serino attended Franklin Pierce, students were immersed in hands-on learning, given the power to help turn the college into what it has become today, and most importantly, led by a man who not only knew everyone on campus, but believed in the potential each student had in creating incredibly bright futures. Jack Serino ’90, talented director, writer, actor, and producer, was one of the many students who attended Franklin Pierce at that time, and attributes his success at Franklin Pierce to Peterson’s leadership.

College Days Originally from Upstate New York, Jack had a radius of how far from home he wanted to travel for college, as

10

Franklin Pierce University Fall 2014

well as how close to home he wanted to be. Since the early age of 5 years old, Jack knew he wanted to make movies! Growing up, he was under the assumption that it could only happen in California and New York, but he did not consider himself a “city guy.” When he first visited the Rindge campus, he immediately loved that Franklin Pierce was on a lake in New Hampshire, and he knew that was where he was meant to go to college. The size mattered to him as well. His older brother had gone to the University of Connecticut, but to Jack, that was massive, and he was looking for a smaller atmosphere. His younger sister, Laurie, joined him at Pierce a year later. During his first campus visit, Jack met Nancy Stone and was “totally impressed” because he thought she was “fantastic.” The fact that Franklin Pierce had a Mass Communication program appeared ahead of the curve. Franklin Pierce also claimed that the students who attended the program were going to “get their hands dirty,” and the students knew they would be in plays, work


on the lights, build the sets, etc. “You couldn’t snooze and get away with it, that was for sure,” Jack shared, “but everyone was so close due to the smaller class size, that if you missed a class, you could talk to anyone and get completely brought up to speed.” Jack was the vice president of his class for both his sophomore and junior years, ” and enjoyed being part of the student council. During his senior year, he was the intramural organizer, coordinated hiring all the referees, and ran Air Jam. “The whole school got into it,” Jack said. People would get together with their buddies and choose a song to perform. You couldn’t use instruments, but you could make them.” The best performances from his recollection were Andy Scher and Chris Bodes’s performance of ZZ Top, Brian Adams and John Perry’s of Place, Karen Weaver and Kim Kalef’s Madonna, and Mark Linneal’s moonwalk to Michael Jackson was epic. Jack got involved with Air Jam when Carl Heiberg was a senior and handed down the microphone to Jack to take on the role of MC for the remainder of his time at Pierce.

Facing the Real World Jack always knew he wanted to work in the entertainment business, but over time he determined that he wanted to make independent films. He knew he had to choose

We were so broke we were living on mac and cheese to survive. When it got to the point we couldn’t afford that, I called the Franklin Pierce Alumni Office and asked for help.” ~ Jack

Heavily involved in athletics, Jack was captain of the Baseball team and third base starter, played on the Ice Hockey team as back-up goalie, was a member of the Golf Team with Owen Hougton, and was also part of the Flag Football movement his junior and senior years. Due to his connection to the Ice Hockey team, Jack helped to plan The Hockey Bash, which was an event that people waited all year for. It was a fundraiser for the hockey team, as well as the most sought-after ticket you could get. Alumni flew back from all over the country; it was a major hit! Jack, a Theatre minor and Mass Communication major, recalls his most memorable professor, Phyllis Zrzavy, and takes pride that he was her first student. Jack stays in touch with as many alumni that he spent time with as he can, but wishes he did more. There was a very solid alumni crowd from ’88-’92 that had a good bond during the years spent at Franklin Pierce. “You could push the limit and learn from mistakes,” said Jack. He attributes a lot to President Walter Peterson. “Walter was amazing. He represented the school so well that you wanted to live up to that example. You always saw that he had the utmost character and a ton of pride for Franklin Pierce that he pulled out of everyone he met.” Jack was so proud to receive the Walter Peterson Award as a senior, because he felt that the award represented Franklin Pierce College to the fullest and was very pleased to think others thought he deserved it.

between New York city and California; his heart told him to make the trek to the West Coast, and he hasn’t looked back since. Jack arrived in California in September 1990, just months after his graduation. He laughed as he recalled the trip, explaining that for the first seven days out there, he was living in his car, because you couldn’t get a job until you had an address, yet no one would rent you an apartment if you didn’t have a job! The first job Jack secured was as a car salesman, which was convenient because it required him to be by a phone all day. He then got a job as a production assistant (PA) and worked behind the scenes, until he got lucky and was cast in an episode of LA Law. From then on, his phone rang off the hook! And seemingly out of nowhere, lots of Franklin Pierce College alums came out of the woodwork. By that time, Jack had an apartment where many alumni found refuge as they, too, took a chance and moved to California. So many alumni came to see him that at one point, Jack had 10 alumni staying in his apartment. “We were so broke we were living on mac and cheese to survive. When it got to the point we couldn’t afford that, I called the Franklin Pierce Alumni Office and asked for help,” Jack said. “I just needed someone to talk to in California who might be able to hire these people who were in every inch of my apartment.” The Franklin Pierce Alumni Office led Jack to Matt Reiss ‘82, who was running the Page Program at Paramount Pictures. Jack contacted Matt, and Matt was able to get them all jobs as PAs. “You learn quickly that how hard you work is how far you go, so some made it, and some left. But some of them, like Tracy Yates ’89, Matt Berman ’92, and John Perry ’92 stuck with it and have done really well for themselves.” Reflecting on his transition from East Coast to West Coast, Jack admitted that at the time, he always thought he would eventually return to the New England area,

Alumni Who Come Back to Give Back Speaking of those guys who crashed at Jack’s apartment way back when, let’s take a look at a couple of them and see what they are doing these days! Matt Berman ’92 and John Perry ’92

Matt and John returned to campus back in April to speak with Franklin Pierce students and to host a film screening of their latest joint endeavor, The Wedding Pact. Matt was the director for the film and John the executive producer. They brought along actor Scott Michael Campbell, one of the stars in the film. All three fielded a lively panel discussion with Mass Communication students who soaked up the knowledge and advice offered by Matt, John, and Scott. Later, students and the community at large were treated to a special screening of The Wedding Pact in Spagnuolo Hall, complete with buttered popcorn. Top photo: Perry, Berman, and Campbell at Mass Communication Career Panel. Upper photo: Perry, Christina Young, and Berman at Fitzwater Awards. Photo below: Robinson at Mass Communication lecture. Bottom photo: Robinson demonstrates lighting at workshop.

John and Matt were both Mass Communication majors at Franklin Pierce who broke into the film world with hard work and a little help from their friends from Franklin Pierce. John currently works for Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, and has directed and produced the Dr. Phil show for many years. John was also the recipient of the Fitzwater Center Medallion for Leadership in Public Communication by an Alumnus this year. Matt, both a director and a screenwriter, is known for his work on Hollywood and Wine, and Big Wind on Campus. Like Jack Serino, Matt and John both generously give back by offering support to up and coming Franklin Pierce professionals. David Robinson ’01

Dave (who did not crash at Jack’s place!) was a Theater major who also came back to campus this year to offer his expertise and advice to Franklin Pierce students. He gave a lecture in a Mass Communication class and ran a Lighting Workshop as well. Dave is the Lighting Director for CNN Crossfire out of Washington, D.C. He initially did an internship with Crossfire, and that paved the way to his road to success. “I love going to work every day,” Dave said enthusiastically. One of the highlights of Dave’s career thus far is that he has “lit” every living President. His hands-on Lighting Workshop was fascinating and showed the complexities of lighting, demonstrating what a difference excellent lighting can make.

but one year turned into 10, which turned into 20. When Jack left the East Coast, he felt like he was going in blind. “No one was there to help map it out for us; you had to just figure it out as you went,” he said. “It was like the school of hard knocks for me. That’s why I come back to Franklin Pierce to talk to students as much as I can, because I want to be able to help them the way I wish someone had helped me.” Since Jack was one of the first trailblazers from Pierce to make it out to California to pursue a career in Hollywood (compared to the many alumni in the field now), there weren’t as many examples to follow. Today he is proud to serve as a sounding board for the younger generation of Franklin Pierce alumni pursuing the same passion.

In Demand An average day for Jack starts at 4:30 a.m. At the time of this interview, Jack’s latest project was working on the set of Teen Wolf; the month before he was working on the sitcom Mike and Molly. “Every day is different,” said Jack. “You’re shooting The Lake House one day, or The Hangover the next, but then you get 10 phone calls asking if you want to go to Baton Rouge to work on The Fantastic Four, or X-Men, and you just pick and choose.” He is the most passionate about independent films, especially The Connecticut Kid, which he wrote, produced, and directed. He is not the only one who

was passionate about it; the film won awards at 14 film festivals – an incredible achievement. But for Jack, he feels that his greatest achievement is yet to come. Jack had always dreamed of working with Robert Redford, so he volunteered at Sundance for eight years with the hope of working with him. Jack enjoyed it greatly because he felt he truly helped bring the director’s vision to the screen there. On the large films that most readers would be familiar with, such as Thor, The Hangover, and The Twilight Saga, there are so many producers involved that Jack said it can often feel like “too many cooks in the kitchen.” On the independent films and the short films at The Sundance Festival, there is generally one producer on the film, where there is more opportunity to exert control and a clarified vision. Looking to the future, Jack has always wanted to teach a bit to help students design a path to what they want to do. He would also love to make more independent films, especially low budget, small crew projects. “Everyone has a story to tell,” said Jack. “My advice to those starting out is to do a short story first. Don’t do your passion first. Take the time to practice and really learn the business, so when you are ready for what you are most passionate about, you are well prepared.”

For Jack, after attending Franklin Pierce and working with mentors like Walter Peterson, Nancy Stone, and Phyllis Zrzavy, the risk of packing up and hitting the road to head to the West Coast did not seem too costly. It seemed like the best and only option, because Jack felt prepared to handle whatever was at the end of that road trip. Nearly 20 years later, Jack Serino is still working each day to create his future, remembering the words of wisdom he learned at Pierce, implementing the hands-on lessons, and giving back to the students who fill the classroom seats at Pierce that he once sat in. He reminds us that no matter what road we take in life, it is best not to get caught up in fame, but to enjoy the purity of what our passions inspire our days to become. Jack’s accomplishments with The Connecticut Kid exemplify much of what we should genuinely strive to achieve: our very best selves, defined by our own standards. Not only is Jack a phenomenally talented director, writer, producer, and actor, but his charm, humility, warm sense of humor, and kind-natured personality are an ideal depiction of Franklin Pierce alumni. The Center for Engagement at Franklin Pierce University is proud to highlight Jack’s achievements in this edition of the Pierce Radius.

Risky Business There are defining moments in life, where the dreamers take risks, aware but unafraid of the consequences, and the safe-steppers analyze every equation, making choices based on the least risk-heavy outcome. But there are also significant people who guide those defining moments by giving us the confidence to take a risk, because they believe we can handle whatever it brings.

Kevin Bacon and Jack Serino.

Arts & Culture

The artistic and cultural offerings in southwestern New Hampshire, known as the Monadnock region, are rich and varied. Some muse that that is a well-guarded secret, but the recent launch of “Discover Monadnock” (www. discovermonadnock.com) plans to help get the word out! Longstanding arts organizations, such as Arts Alive, also plan to help promote the many unique artistic events in the region. (www.monadnockartsalive.org)

Contra dancing is another special activity in the region. This traditional dance, with origins from 17th century England and France, is a partnered folk dance in which couples dance in two facing lines or in a group of four. People of all ages enjoy this dance, which is always done to live music. The dances are held in the town halls of many towns in the Monadnock region on various nights of the week. (www.monadnockfolk.org) The Pumpkin Festival in Keene is always a tremendously popular event which takes place in October, (this year on October 18). Jack o’lanterns are carved by area school children and students of all ages, the bandstand comes alive, seasonal foods abound, and a tower of pumpkins line the streets. Last year, the World Record was reclaimed with a total of 30,581 pumpkins! (www.pumpkinfestival2011.org)

For those who enjoy fiber arts, there is an annual Wool Arts Tour, which takes place during Columbus Day weekend. Its stated intent is to share the love and knowledge of fiber and the animals that produce it. The farms and studios on the tour have something for everyone, “whether you knit, spin, weave or just appreciate quality handiwork; whether you like watching the artistry of ages-old

home industries in a modern setting; or whether you just want to watch a demonstration or see the animals that produce the fiber.”

The Peterborough Players, one of the oldest summer stock theaters in the country, has live professional theater performances each summer. During the rest of the year, it brings exceptional opera, dance, and theatrical performances from New York City and European stages that can be viewed on an oversized screen in its historic theater. A favorite series is The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD, which runs from fall through spring with 10 spectacular operas, streamed on screen directly from the Met’s stage in New York city.

The Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF) is an exciting new festival that takes place in Keene during the month of April. Coming up on its third year, the festival not only gives film lovers the opportunity to see movie premieres that are not normally available, but one of the best parts is that festival goers can attend panels of film professionals. Film makers and actors who are panelists sit up close and personal with festival attendees, offering unique educational and networking possibilities.

The Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough is a prized source for the visual arts. Its gallery in downtown Peterborough features the artwork of regional and nationally acclaimed artists, rotating every seven to eight weeks. Its Craft Gallery houses the work of more than 100 local juried craftspeople in a variety of mediums. Classes from book arts to sculpture are offered, from one-day workshops to in-depth programs.

This is just a smattering of some of the fun and interesting artistic and cultural happenings in the Monadnock region available to Franklin Pierce students – and their family and friends when they come to visit!

Space Dedications to the Marulli Family Celebrating Decades of Generosity By Lisa Murray, Editor

eterson Manor is now the home of two important spaces that have been dedicated to the Marulli family, in recognition of their extraordinary generosity to Franklin Pierce over many decades. A naming and dedication ceremony took place during Alumni Reunion Weekend 2014 to a packed house of alumni, Board of Trustee members, and Franklin Pierce University staff and faculty.

Al and Barbara Marulli.

The Presidential Suite is now officially named “The Maria and Alfred N. Marulli Sr. Presidential Suite” in memory of Maria and Alfred N. Marulli Sr. They gave to Franklin Pierce with very generous hearts and spirits back when Franklin Pierce was still a college. The room in Peterson Manor that has been informally referred to as the Alumni Lounge has been named “The Barbara and Alfred N. Marulli Jr. ’69 Welcome Center” in recognition of Barbara and Al Marulli Jr.’s ongoing support, which has spanned many decades. “The Marulli family has been a loyal and generous friend to Franklin Pierce,” said President James Birge. “I was so pleased to be part of honoring them in a significant way, after their many years of philanthropy and service.” In addition to Al and Barbara’s financial support, Al has also given of himself by serving on the Franklin Pierce Board of Trustees. He served on the Board from 1992-2002, and then came back on to serve again in 2013. A Pioneer alumnus from the Class of 1969, Al founded David Associates, an East Coast commercial real estate development company in Florida. Barbara is the owner of Worth Realty, Inc., a thriving real estate company in Palm Beach County. The couple has been married for 40 years, and they have raised five children together. The naming and dedication ceremony was attended by many alumni from the Pioneer Classes, as well as alumni from more recent classes. Remarks were offered by President Birge, Lloyd Astmann ’69, and Board Chair Mike Fallon. After the ribbon cutting and unveiling of the new signage, champagne, cake, and good conversation was enjoyed by all. The generosity of the Marulli family serves as an inspiration. Naming these two spaces in Peterson Manor is a fitting way to honor them and continue to inspire generations of future alumni.

Community Service

Alumna Robin Picard: Peace Corps Volunteer Last spring, Robin Picard ’82 delivered a powerful presentation on the Rindge campus describing her work in Ukraine as a Peace Corps volunteer. In her presentation entitled “Why Ukraine Matters: The Work of the Peace Corps,” Robin spoke of the history, the struggles, and her own political views and experiences during her time there. Robin was stationed in Ukraine in a town called Hadiach in March 2013 for what was scheduled to be a 27-month volunteer post. However, Robin’s stay was cut short when she was evacuated from the country in February 2014. When a rebellion broke out within the city of Maidan, Robin’s Peace Corps group was instructed to go to their safe houses; they were asked to leave the country within a short period of time after that. The attentive audience at Franklin Pierce listened to Robin describe how the Ukrainian people she met saw the world quite differently than she did. Most of the people she met in Ukraine did not understand what would “coerce” people from America to leave “paradise” and volunteer to help others. The Ukrainians appeared to have a hard time welcoming and trusting new people. Robin surmised that this social behavior evolved after years of suppression and the loss of loved ones. She related how saying hello to a stranger and smiling is a social oddity in the Ukrainian culture. With Robin’s infectious smile and easygoing personality, she was undoubtedly a curiosity! The work Robin focused on during her time in Ukraine was to educate, empower, and instill hope in the people. She taught them about leadership, individual activism, healthy lifestyles, healthcare, and computer skills. Robin spent time with local citizens to help arm them with knowledge and to encourage them to find the power within themselves to fight for a better tomorrow. Before she left, Robin also started a Skype program that connected senior citizens in Ukraine with senior citizens in Keene, N.H. Shortly after Robin came to Franklin Pierce to make her presentation, the Peace Corps found a new post for her in Mozambique.

Pioneer Classes Lead the Way! he first several years of graduating classes (‘66-’72) at Franklin Pierce University are called “Pioneers” because they were indeed pioneers – the first to take a chance on a brand new college in rural New Hampshire. These Classes continue to be pioneers as they lead the entire body of alumni in Class giving, far outpacing the other Classes in

By Lisa Murray, Editor

their desire to give back to the school they grew to love (see p. 32 in the Honor Roll of Giving). Each of the Pioneer Classes has a special affiliation with Franklin Pierce formed by their own unique memories. But all of the Classes that followed in their footsteps have their own special memories as well, and have


left their own mark on Franklin Pierce University – the entrepreneurial little college that has become a university and continues to grow into its maturity, now 52 years of age and counting! The Pioneer Classes think of Franklin Pierce as family, and they demonstrate just what that means. All healthy relationships involve give and take; a true relationship requires a two-way effort. The tight-knit Pioneers put time and effort into their relationships with each other and with their alma mater. They consistently come to the annual Alumni Reunion Weekend, serve on Career Panels, participate in Franklin Pierce Golf Tournament fundraisers, join the Alumni Board and the Board of Trustees, and donate to The Pierce Fund and many other campaigns that make Franklin Pierce a better place for its student body.

The Pioneer Classes invest; they invest their time, their hearts, and their money to continue to nurture the friendships and the place they have come to love and treasure. That’s special. And judging by how much fun they seem to have together when they return to campus, the deep level of engagement they have chosen to make seems to be well worth the effort! May the Pioneers serve as an inspiration for all Franklin Pierce alumni. You get out of it what you put into it! The Center for Engagement is here for all alumni; once family, always family. Give them a call, send an email, come to an Alumni event, visit the campus or Center where you studied, and give whatever you can to The Pierce Fund. We rely on the Franklin Pierce family to remain connected; the future of this special place depends on you.

CGPS

College of Graduate & Professional Studies

Franklin Pierce University at Manchester operates a clinic with Concord Hospital that serves individuals who are uninsured and are accepted by the hospital's free care program. This joint project is a valuable experience for students who have been staffing the clinic, along with Concord Hospital staff, for the past three years. Thirty-eight Doctor of Physical Therapy students completed or will complete their Integrated Clinical Experiences at the clinic this past academic year. Most student participants note that this experience Concord Hospital Student Clinic, staffed by Franklin Pierce students. helps them to fully integrate their classroom lessons and prepare them for managing patient care from evaluation to discharge with challenging patients. They appreciate that these underserved patients benefit from the skilled physical therapy services that they provide with the oversight of senior clinicians from Concord Hospital. Franklin Pierce’s Dr. Olga McSorley has provided a number of presentations nationally, along with Dana Sackos and Diane Olimpio of Concord Hospital, regarding the clinic’s ongoing success.

Dr. Lisa J. Hogan.

at Portsmouth is the hub of the University's Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program and its postMaster’s Certificate in Nursing Education. Last spring, both programs P o r t s m o u t h received full accreditation status from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. Director of Nursing Education Lisa J. Hogan, Ph.D., D.N.P., C.R.N.A., is proud of the accomplishments within the University’s Nursing programs. “We are doing everything we can to make a quality education in nursing as accessible as possible,” said Dr. Hogan.

Students generally take a combination of online and in-class courses at CGPS in Portsmouth, Manchester, or Lebanon. “We even offer Nursing programs on site at Wentworth Douglass, Dartmouth Hitchcock, and Exeter Hospitals,” Dr. Hogan said. Franklin Pierce’s M.S.N. program admits nurses with an Associate degree in Nursing or a Bachelor degree in any of a variety of disciplines. Students who choose to enroll in Franklin Pierce’s program to earn an M.S.N. in either Nursing Leadership or Nursing Education often do so in order to gain the skills necessary to advance in an already established nursing career, or to embark on a second career. And kudos to Dr. Hogan, who recently received her Ph.D. degree in Instructional Leadership and Management. 20

Franklin Pierce University at Lebanon was proud to host President James F. Birge and Provost Kim Mooney, who presided at the Master of Physician Assistant Studies (M.P.A.S.) Program Completion Ceremony on March 1, 2014. Twenty-one students in the M.P.A.S. program in Lebanon received certificates of completion toward their diplomas. The group had an impressive 95% first-time pass rate on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam, a test L e b a n o n to assess basic medical and surgical knowledge that is required in order to become a certified Physician Assistant. Congratulations to this hardworking group! And more congratulations go to Franklin Pierce RN-BS student, Heather Bonneau, who has been studying for her RN-BS degree at Franklin Pierce in Lebanon and was named “Nurse of The Year” at Lebanon’s Alice Peck Day Hospital (APD). The mother of three has had a variety of nursing experiences, including positions in hospice care, same-day surgery, acute care, and the operating room. The APD’s “Nurse of the Year” award was presented to Bonneau by its Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer Beverley Rankin. Franklin Pierce University

at Goodyear, Arizona, and Maricopa Community Colleges have created an exciting Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) for nursing students. Students G o o d y e a r can obtain an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Nursing in Maricopa, while completing coursework toward the Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Franklin Pierce University. The Maricopa-Franklin Pierce CEP is an educational partnership designed to assist in meeting the Institute of Medicine 2010 Future of Nursing goal to increase the percentage of B.S. prepared nurses in the United States. An information session on this new program was held early in the summer, with a large number of candidates interested in this educational opportunity. The program will initially be offered through Estrella Mountain Community College in Avondale, one of the ten Maricopa community colleges in the Phoenix area. Applications are now being considered for a Spring 2015 cohort. For further information, visit: http://nursing.maricopa.edu/ConcurrentEnrollment.php. www.franklinpierce.edu 21


Sustainability

Sustainability Coordinator Goes to International Conference Insights, Images, and Questions for Engagement Following the October 2013 publication of her article, “What’s the Best Formula for a Sustainable Campus?” in the Huffington Post, Sustainability Coordinator Jess Gerrior was invited by the International Association of Universities (IAU) to speak at its March 2014 International Conference on “Blending Higher Education and Traditional Knowledge for Sustainable Development.” As part of a panel that included higher education leaders from the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies in Japan, the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana in Mexico, and the Universidad Libre sede Bosque in Colombia, Gerrior spoke about sustainable development in university life and indicators for assessing impact beyond “campus greening.” The Conference, which took place in Iquitos, Peru, the largest city in the world that cannot be reached by road, brought international focus to the key issue of education for sustainable development (ESD). Conference participants helped define the IAU’s position with regard to the Post-2015 Development 22

Franklin Pierce University Fall 2014

Agenda. They drafted the IAU Statement on Higher Education for Sustainable Development, which the IAU will present at the UNESCO World Conference on ESD in Aichi Nagoya, Japan, in November 2014. The Conference was a significant event in the movement of higher education toward alignment with sustainable development goals and the recognition of traditional cultural values as instrumental in the future of ESD. Official Conference activities included a tour on the Amazon River and ceremonial presentations of the seven indigenous peoples from the Peruvian Amazon (Achuar, Awajun, Wampis, Kandosi, Chapra, Quechua, and Shawi). Conference proceedings focused on three topics: What Kind of Future Do We Want?, The Role of Higher Education in Promoting Sustainable Development, and The Post-2015 Development Agenda as a Framework for IAU and higher education institutions. In addition to these activities, Gerrior also found opportunities to explore the edges of Iquitos, camera in hand.


She delivered two visual presentations during Earth Week in April 2014 that brought the reality of the global sustainability challenge to stark light. Students and community members who attended the presentations responded with a mixture of shock, sadness, and eagerness to see sustainability work furthered at Franklin Pierce. Some of the images were also showcased at a local art show; Gerrior’s intentions for them were to evoke a deeper awareness of the human side of environmental problems and to stir people to action, whether internationally or locally. For Gerrior, the following questions emerged from the Conference: What

can higher education and traditional knowledge practitioners learn from each other? What should education for sustainable development look like at Franklin Pierce? How can higher education most effectively and wisely engage its resources to promote sustainable development?

Gerrior will present Conference outcomes, along with her photographs and reflections, to the North American higher education community at the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education 2014 Conference in Portland, Ore., this October.

Athletics

Raven Student-Athletes Earn Academic Success The Franklin Pierce University Department of Athletics once again got the job done in the classroom in 2013-14, highlighted by the fact that 215 Raven student-athletes were named to the Spring 2014 Northeast-10 Conference Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll for earning grade point averages of 3.0 or higher. The total number came from 18 teams on the Rindge campus that compete in a Northeast-10 Conference sponsored sport. The total was the sixth highest for a school in the 15-member Conference, and it represented 52 percent of all student-athletes at Franklin Pierce who take part in an NE-10 sponsored sport. The 215 honorees came just months after 222 student-athletes were placed on the Conference’s Fall 2013 Academic Honor Roll. The academic success was not just limited to student-athletes at Franklin Pierce who compete in the NE-10. The sprint football, women’s ice hockey, and women’s rowing programs do not compete in the league, but still boast impressive academic numbers. That fact was illustrated in January of 2014, when 195 studentathletes (regardless of sport) were named to Franklin Pierce’s Academic Honor Roll for earning GPAs of 3.2 or higher during

the fall semester, including 20 who totaled perfect 4.0 marks. The NE-10 highlighted many individual student-athletes from Franklin Pierce throughout the year, as 11 took a step further by being named to the Northeast-10 All-Academic Team for their respective sport. Highlighting the list of individuals was senior volleyball standout Natasha Ray, who won the league’s Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award in her respective sport for the second time in as many seasons. The Excellence Award is voted on by league administrators and is given to the top scholar-athlete (combining both academic and athletic success) in each sport sponsored by the Northeast-10. Ray, who was also named to the NE-10 Volleyball All-Academic Team, was joined by two other teammates who were named to the volleyball squad, including senior Lauren Miller and junior Catie Swiderski. Three other fall standouts were named to the all-academic teams in their respective sports, including Gabriela Vieira and Caroline Savasta for women’s soccer, and Terence Ciavarra for men’s soccer. The winter season saw women’s basketball’s Brooke Coderre and men’s indoor

Max Fanwick

track & field’s Max Fanwick named to their all-academic teams, while the spring season had a trio of standouts make their squads, including women’s lacrosse’s Lauren Beville, softball’s Courtney Caputo, and women’s outdoor track & field’s Nadine Hyde. While earning a 3.0 qualifies a student-athlete for making the NE-10 Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll, student-athletes that make one of the all-academic teams need to earn a minimum GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale. ~ By Doug DeBiase, Director of Athletics Communications

Ravens in the Spring; Red Sox in the Summer

Franklin Pierce University softball fans are well aware of Class of 2015 Alicia Dean’s outstanding skills both in the field and at the plate, but this past summer, other fans around the New England region got a glimpse of it for themselves. The slick fielding skills Dean possesses at first base have not only vaulted her to being regarded as one of the better defensive infielders in the Northeast-10 Conference, but have also been put to good use as she served as a ball girl for the Boston Red Sox in their historic home of Fenway Park.

Dream Job Dean’s job was an important one for game day operations at Fenway, as she had to be quick to snag a foul ball from going into the stands and injuring a fan who might not be paying attention, or quick to scoop up a foul ball from the field of play so the pace of the game could continue. “Deano,” as her coaches and teammates like to call her, was living a dream all summer, working for her beloved Red Sox in her home state of Massachusetts. 28

Franklin Pierce University Fall 2014

“It was honestly a dream come true,” said Dean, who hails from Danvers, Mass. “I’ve been a Red Sox fan my entire life, and couldn’t have even imagined that this would happen. I absolutely loved it. Nothing beats working at Fenway Park. Everyone’s family there.” Dean got her big break late in the spring when a former youth softball coach of hers messaged to ask if she would be interested in being a ball girl for the team. Her former coach currently works for the Major League club, and an interview was arranged. Dean felt she lucked out in getting the position, but her personable attitude most surely came through in the interview, thus enabling her to get the job. Dean’s work schedule varied depending on the number of home games the Red Sox had. She typically arrived at the ballpark an hour before the first pitch, changed into her full Red Sox uniform, and then got the script and timeline of events for the night or day ahead. In addition to picking foul balls, she was also responsible for assisting with all pre-game ceremonies, including meeting the


guests, making them aware of the events, and assisting with the first pitch. “It was really a lot of fun,” said Dean. “We got to meet so many wonderful people and hear some amazing stories. Our main pre-game responsibility was the ceremonial first pitch. We accompanied the guests out to the mound, and if one of the Red Sox players was not catching, then we got to jump in there behind home plate. It was a wonderful experience.”

Fully Committed The job of being a ball girl for the Red Sox sounds like it would have made summer busy enough for Dean, but that doesn’t begin to tell the tale of her time. In addition to working for the Sox, she also coached an AAU summer softball team and participated in two different softball leagues when time allowed. “The AAU team I coached was my main priority this summer,” Dean said. “I held that job before getting the Red Sox position, so I had to prioritize my duties. I was fully committed to the girls I coached, and enjoyed getting to teach the game to them.” Anyone who knows Dean shouldn’t be surprised she was so busy over the summer. She is the same way at Franklin Pierce during the school year. In addition to fulfilling her duties as a captain and starting first baseman for the Ravens softball team, she is also a standout in the classroom. Dean was named to the NE-10 Commissioner’s Academic Honor each of her first three seasons, while also twice being named a National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division II Scholar-Athlete. Her endeavors have also been recognized by Franklin Pierce with the

Don & Judy Schriefer Scholarship, which is awarded annually at the Athletic Department’s year-end awards banquet. Dean definitely keeps busy and on her toes, but that’s not surprising to anyone who knows her. “My summer definitely wasn’t boring,” said Dean, “and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!” ~ By Doug DeBiase, Director of Athletics Communications

Athletics Spring/Summer Notebook/Wrap-up Quartet of Student-Athletes Take Home Major Athletic Awards

Cody Kelley

Ellis Cooper

The Franklin Pierce University Department of Athletics handed out its year-end awards at the 2013-14 Season in Review banquet in May. Headlining the award winners were a quartet of senior student-athletes who took home the Walter Peterson Male & Female Senior Student-Athlete of the Year Award, and the Richard Burns Male & Female Senior Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award. The Peterson Award honors the top male and female senior athlete based on career athletic accomplishments, while the Burns Award honors a pair of seniors who have distinguished themselves in the classroom while also being standouts in the athletic arena.

Men’s basketball’s Ellis Cooper and volleyball’s Lauren Miller won the Peterson Awards, while men’s lacrosse’s Cody Kelley and volleyball’s Natasha Ray took home the Burns Award. Cooper was a threetime All-Northeast-10 Conference honoree, including winning first-team honors in both 2012 and 2014. He was named the most valuable player of the 2013 NCAA East Regional Tournament, as he led the Ravens to the Natasha Ray championship and a spot in the Division II Elite Eight in Louisville, Ky. Miller was named the 2013 NE-10 Co-Libero of the Year as a senior, marking the first major Conference award in program history. She, along with Ray, helped lead volleyball to its first two appearances in the NCAA Tournament in program history in 2012 and 2013. Ray was a two-time NE-10 Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award winner in the sport of Lauren Miller volleyball, while also earning All-NE-10 honors on the court as both a junior and senior. Kelley was a two-time captain for the men’s lacrosse team, while also posting one of the highest grade point averages in the NE-10 as a senior. Also joining the four as award winners on that night included sprint football’s Shawn Cronin (Fred Berger Scholarship; team manager); Natalie Bastian (Catherine Crochiere Scholarship; women’s basketball player); volleyball’s Catie Swiderski (Community Service Award; two-time winner); Sam Meza and Casey Schehl (Tod Silegy Scholarship; men’s soccer players); John Lochhead (Henry Verity Scholarship; men’s soccer player); men’s lacrosse’s Connor Defemia (Bruce Kirsh Scholarship); sprint football’s/track & field’s Connor Rogowsky and Shawn DeCost, field hockey’s Natalia Bachelder; volleyball’s Sarah MacHugh; and softball’s Alicia Dean (Don & Judy Schriefer Scholarships). 30

All-Star Performers The summer months saw a handful of Franklin Pierce spring season student-athletes get invites to regional all-star games in their respective sports. Baseball’s trio of catcher Matt Walsh, outfielder Calvin Graves, and pitcher Conor Gleason were selected to participate in the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) All-Star Game in Lowell, Mass., while men’s lacrosse’s Cody Kelley was tabbed to compete in the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) All-Star contest in Springfield, Mass. The four all-stars joined other Raven student-athletes who competed in their Calvin Graves

respective all-star contests earlier in the year, including field hockey’s Chanelle Letarte for the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) North-South Senior Game in late November, and men’s basketball’s Ellis Cooper for the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II National All-Star Game in late March.

Graves Selected in the 2014 MLB Draft The Ravens baseball program continued its run of having at least one player selected in the Major League Baseball (MLB) First-Year Player Draft in early June, as senior outfielder Calvin Graves was picked by the Chicago Cubs in the 27th round. He is the 26th player from the program drafted by the Majors since 2001, and the team has had at least one player selected in the draft in 13 of the last 14 years. Graves earned All-NE-10 First-Team honors as a senior in 2014 and helped the Ravens advance to the NCAA Division II East Regional Tournament. He was a major part of the program winning the regional title in 2013 and advancing to the Division II College World Series in Cary, N.C. ~ By Doug DeBiase, Director of Athletics Communications

I give to The Pierce Fund through a monthly contribution because the little I give up each month adds up during the year. My contribution matters because each dollar goes to helping the larger community at Franklin Pierce, a place that holds such warm memories in my heart, from the time I spent as a student and continue to spend there as an alumni. ~ Kevin Shirvell ’01

Franklin Pierce University Fall 2014


Study Abroad

New Opportunities Around the World The administration gave a careful analysis of its study abroad offerings to assess how Franklin Pierce University students could be given broadened exposure to the world. The results are in, and opportunities abound!

Education First The University now has an agreement with Education First (EF), which will provide study abroad programs for students who are especially interested in studying foreign languages. EF was founded in Sweden in 1965 with the aim of improving language skills and intercultural relations worldwide. With this mission in mind, Franklin Pierce has partnered with EF to make its Language Study Abroad programs available during Franklin Pierce’s academic year and over summer breaks.

Council on International Educational Exchange Another innovation is a new partnership agreement with the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), which provides a wide range of study abroad opportunities for students in more than 40 countries and 60 cities around the world, spanning more cultures, locations, and disciplines than any other study abroad organization. Appealing to a broader range of majors than the University was able to in the past, students will now be allowed the flexibility to take courses both in their majors and in general education. All course offerings are in English and do not require a foreign language, another way to be as inclusive as possible of any student wishing to study abroad. The combination of these advantages will open up the world and its rich educational experiences to many more Franklin Pierce students.

In lieu of the newly expanded offerings, the Pierce in Vienna and Lyon programs will no longer be offered at Franklin Pierce. Pierce on the Camino, which is a one-semester, long-distance walk through southern France and across northern Spain along the old pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, will continue to be offered every other year. This rather unique semester abroad option remains a beloved educational experience, which typically affects students on a deep and enduring level. Maymester and semester course-related study abroad programs will continue to be offered as well.

At the Helm We welcome Patti Vorfeld, who has been with the University’s Center for Academic Excellence, into her newly expanded role as the Director of International Study Initiatives and Center for Academic Excellence Operations. Patti works closely with our new partners, EF and CIEE, and also oversees operations in the Center for Academic Excellence.

Students on the Pierce Camino walk, fall 2013.

For more information about the new Study Abroad opportunities, contact Patti Vorfeld at vorfeldp@franklinpierce.edu or (603) 899-4108.

University Roundup Congresswoman Annie Kuster held a roundtable discussion for women at Franklin Pierce University’s Rindge campus last April during her “Women’s Economic Agenda” listening tour. The event brought together a diverse group of Franklin Pierce students, staff, and academics. They discussed economic issues facing women today, as well as personal experiences regarding pay equity, family leave time, and healthcare.

Ronald Kessler, journalist and New York Times bestselling author, captivated his audience during a Fry Lecture Series event last March called “Washington Secrets,” which highlighted two of his latest books, The Secrets of the F.B.I. and In the President’s Secret Service. Mr. Kessler emphasized how much he enjoys “telling an honest story,” as well as “the challenge of revealing secrets.” The lecture marked the third event for the 2013-2014 Fry Lecture Series. Franklin Pierce University graduates appear to be primed for workplace engagement according to the results of an analysis of its students against a recent Gallup study of 30,000 college students nationwide. The Gallup study found that students who had an internship related to their field, worked on a semester-long project, developed a meaningful relationship with a faculty member, or felt that professors cared about them were more likely to be engaged in their jobs after graduation. This data was analyzed against measurements of Franklin Pierce student engagement using the National Survey of Student Engagement. The results indicated that Franklin Pierce students are well positioned to enter the workplace as engaged workers.

Franklin Pierce University Fall 2014

In March 2014, Franklin Pierce University hosted its annual “Relay for Life” event in the Fieldhouse. Each year, the American Cancer Society holds Relay for Life events all over the world to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer. During the Relay, cancer survivors, families, and participants celebrate where they have been and what they have overcome, recognize loved ones who are currently battling cancer, and remember those who have been lost. Thank you to all students, staff, faculty, and community members who participated! The 2014 Academic Showcase highlighted the exceptional work of its undergraduate students. Presentations took place each day for a week in April and included topics such as “Interning with the FBI,” “Anthropology Field Work in Denmark and Peru,” “Body Image in the Media,” and a mock debate by the Ethics Bowl Team. A faculty poster session that highlighted faculty research projects rounded out the weeklong Showcase. Franklin Pierce University received the New Hampshire State Merit Award for its collaborative work on the QUEST program at the New England Board of High Education 12th Annual Excellence Award Ceremony last March. The QUEST program is an educational camping program for middle-school students that takes place on the Rindge campus during the summer. The program is a collaborative effort between the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, the Jaffrey-Rindge public school district, and Franklin Pierce University.


John K. Castle, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, and Kenneth R. Feinberg who is nationally known for administering victim compensation funds, received Honorary Degrees at the Commencement ceremony. J. Bonnie Newman was presented with The Honorable Walter R. Peterson Citizen Leader Award for her work in higher education and government; the award honors an individual for extraordinary commitment to public service, selfless contributions to higher education, and high moral character. Each of the honorees offered words of advice to the graduates.

2014 Commencement Although the weather forecast threatened rain, Franklin Pierce University’s 49th Commencement Exercises took place on May 17, 2014, in full sun at its outdoor ceremony. President James Birge welcomed 370 graduates prepared to receive their undergraduate and graduate degree diplomas. It was a spectacular day with family, friends, and faculty who celebrated all the hard work of the University’s 2014 graduates.

Mary Ann Sullivan D.A. ’09 is the author of a new book, Hermit Day, containing a collection of poems. The book was launched this past May. Last June, Mary Ann presented a reading of her book at the Westchester Poetry Conference, the largest poetry conference in the country. Dr. David Ferland D.A. ’12, associate professor at Mount Washington College and retired Portsmouth New Hampshire Chief of Police, published Historic Crimes & Justice in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The book traces the history of crime in Portsmouth from the first courts in 1800 to today’s award-winning police department. The Dunn family did it! Three Dunn children – Patrick, Sean, and Siobhan – all graduated from Franklin Pierce University last May, just two weeks after their mom Joan finished her master’s degree program at Wheelock College in Boston. Congratulations to all! And yes, there’s still one child left to go; James is a junior at Franklin Pierce this year. Ronald ( Jay) Hagstrom, a U.S. veteran and freshman at Franklin Pierce University, is a “Powerful Voice” winner for Yes! Magazine’s national student writing competition. More than 1,000 students across the country entered the contest, for which there were three winners. The essays were published in the online version of the magazine and in its education newsletter, which is sent to a list of 28,000 educators nationwide. Jessica Besnoff, a student in the Doctor of Arts in Leadership program and a Massachusetts elementary school teacher, was selected from a national applicant pool to attend a 2014 summer study opportunity supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Jessica participated in the workshop entitled “The Most Southern Place on Earth; the Music, Culture, and History in the Mississippi Delta,” held on the Delta State University campus in Cleveland.


Jonathan Walton and Matt Litchfield, both doctor of physical therapy students, volunteered in the medical tents set up to provide immediate assistance to runners at the 2014 Boston Marathon. The two D.P.T. students worked from 7 a.m.-7 p.m., arriving early to be cleared through the tight security and to help set up the tent, which was almost the length of an entire city block. Physical therapists were especially helpful in diagnosing soft tissue injuries and assisting runners with the alleviation of cramps.

Nine students and two staff members, Scott AnsevinAllen and Derek Scalia, traveled to Alabama last May to engage in a weeklong service/Civil Rights immersion program, sponsored by the University’s Department of Student Involvement. The group volunteered for Habitat for Humanity in Montgomery, participated in the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Challenge, did literacy work, and retraced significant events within the Civil Rights Movement, to name just some of their activities.

Faculty in the news . . . Professor Thomas Bennett, M.D. and 12 students traveled to Ghana last spring on a Medical Mission with the Hope for Tomorrow Foundation, which sends doctors and students to developing nations each year to provide surgeries for young people. The group witnessed firsthand the delivery of healthcare in the West African country while volunteering their time and expertise in two hospitals in the city of Elmina. Dr. Paul Carreiro, Aviation-PA and associate director of clinical education for the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program, was part of the Physician Assistant Education Association’s Government Relations Team that went to Capitol Hill last spring to advocate for the profession. Drs. Josh Cleland and Olga McSorley, professors in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, presented research at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting in Las Vegas last February. Dr. McSorley presented about the pro bono student clinic at Concord Hospital. Dr. Cleland was presented with the

Rose Award for Excellence in Research for the second year in a row. Attendees included five D.P.T. students from Franklin Pierce at Manchester and 12 from Franklin Pierce at Goodyear. Dr. Melinda Jette, associate professor in the Humanities department, attended the annual meeting of the National Council on Public History (NCPH) in California last March.

Dr. Mary C. Kelly, professor of History, is the author of Ireland’s Great Famine in Irish-American History: Enshrining a Fateful Memory (Rowan & Littlefield). Drawing on the insights of contemporary memory studies, as well as on her own deep knowledge of Irish American history, Dr. Kelly provides a roadmap to the complicated process by which the memory of the Famine shaped what it meant to be Irish in the United States. Dr. Douglas Ley, professor of Humanities, served on a roundtable discussion with fellow New Hampshire state representatives at the World Affairs Council in Concord, N.H., last March.
