Special Section: Donor Report 2007


from the PRESIDENT

Dr. Biff Green

Falcon Fever hit an unprecedented pitch this past fall as Friends University hosted its first-ever NAIA football playoff game Nov. 17, and the football team played for the second consecutive year in the NAIA playoffs. Upon hearing the news that Friends University would be hosting a firstround national playoff game, Athletic Director Joe Zimmerman, his staff and staff from many other departments across campus leapt into action to get ready for the game with only five days’ preparation. Unfortunately, the Falcons lost their playoff game against the Missouri Valley Vikings 21-34. Despite this loss, Falcon football enjoyed a successful season, achieving a conference record of 8-1 and an overall record of 9-1 going into the playoffs. They tied for the KCAC Championship and were consistently ranked in the NAIA Top 25 throughout the season. They were in eighth place in the national polls leading to the first-round game. It is rewarding to see our football team doing so well, and their success has shown that college football is alive and well in Wichita. Another momentous event occurred this fall when we announced that we 2

news in FOCUS FRIENDS UNIVERSITY STUDENTS PROVIDE PEER MENTORING BY CYNTHIA WHITELY, FRESHMAN, AND KATE BOSSERMAN Students with developmental disabilities have found mentors in Friends University students. The Arc of Sedgwick County has partnered with Wichita USD 259 to provide the Circle of Friends program for students from kindergarten through age 21. The social-mentoring program pairs special-needs students with their peers in regular education. Circle of Friends Coordinator Valerie Wall said she feels the program benefits both students in the mentoring relationship. “The special-education students gain self esteem, communication skills and many other things,” Wall said. “The volunteers gain leadership, self esteem and an understanding of diversity.” The program also strives to decrease inappropriate behavior, improve grades, increase the graduation rate, and create a support structure outside the family by providing strong peer role models. About 200 Friends University Freshman Seminar students were paired with 125 special-education students Oct. 9, 2007. They

distance, intensity or just plain hard times,” Dr. Lerner said. Dr. Lerner was one of the first psychologists to take crucial concepts from Dr. Harriet Lerner family systems theory and make them accessible and applicable. “Although best known for her work on the psychology of women, her concepts are vital for all human interactions,” said Dr. Dan Lord, professor of marriage and family therapy and associate vice president of academic affairs. “Her ideas are rich and so very useful. The concepts she articulates are helpful for every relationship context that one could identify,” Dr. Lord said. “Anyone will find a way to benefit from what she says.” Dr. Lerner will speak in Sebits Auditorium in the Riney Fine Arts Center, followed by a reception with a book signing and desserts. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Madden at 316-295-5906 or madden@friends.edu.

Dr. Harriet Lerner will present “Voice Lessons: Ten Steps to Extraordinary Relationships” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 4, as part of the Friends University Willard and Jean Garvey Lecture Series. “With the input of deans and department heads from across campus, it was decided last spring that our annual Garvey lecture would focus on conflict resolution and peacemaking topics,” said Dr. Dixie Madden, director of the Garvey Institute of Law. “Our previous lectures in this area have been very well received, and we’re excited to continue on this path. We’re thrilled to formally kick off this new direction with Dr. Lerner’s wisdom on interpersonal communication, which is a key building block to conflict resolution and peacemaking at all levels.” Dr. Lerner is the author of many bestselling books, including “The Dance of Anger” and most recently “The Dance of Fear.” She served as a staff psychologist at the Menninger Clinic in Topeka for several decades and has a private practice in Lawrence. The lecture will focus on key points in her “Dance” books. “The thread that connects all of my work is my wish to help people speak wisely and well when relationships are challenged by too much

Alumni with Disabilities Share Stories of Success BY ERIN O’DONNELL

When Rosemary Middleton Distifan was a freshman at Friends University, the campus consisted of three buildings. Her family bought a house a block away so that Rosemary – who has been legally blind since childhood – could walk to school. It was 1945. There were no wheelchair ramps, no parking spaces set aside for the disabled. In those days, living without sight usually meant living out of sight. But not for Distifan. She earned her history degree

from Friends in 1949 and went on to a career in the state department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, first taking dictation and later becoming a social worker for the blind. If Distifan enrolled at Friends today, the Office of CrossCultural Programs in the Division of Student Affairs would probably be one of her first stops. That’s where students with physical and mental disabilities can go for assistance. Director Jaclyn Hugg said her office served 19 students in the fall semester, about twice as many as in the spring. Most have learning disabilities and may ask for additional time on assignments and tests, Hugg said. Others may require sign language interpreters or audiobooks. “We try our hardest to accommodate and help everyone be successful. We want to get the word out and let them know it’s available.” Hugg said once students reach out to her office, she can help communicate their needs to faculty or suggest ways that other students have handled common obstacles. In most cases, help comes from their peers, who provide tutoring or assistance getting around campus. In her school days, Distifan had a counselor who helped her find readers for class materials. And that was about it. “But I never had any problems getting help,” Distifan said. Sixty years later, Robert HamRosemary Distifan as a senior at Friends University mer Jr. can say the same thing in 1949. Distifan has been about being at Friends University. blind since childhood. Hammer has cerebral palsy, distorting his body from the waist down. He walks awkwardly, dragging one foot. His speech and intelligence are unaffected — but it’s hard to get that across in the flash of a first impression. Job interviews had always been particularly difficult. “You can talk to someone over the phone and almost have the job, then go in person and see their expression and know it’s all over,” Hammer said. “People think because you have a disability that you don’t have any brains. Now, how can that be true when I have a bachelor’s degree?” Hammer earned his last year in computer technology, through the degree completion program — right before he competed in the Salty Dog Triathlon in Hutchinson. At the age of 48, Hammer finally had a sense of self-confidence. As a kid, he endured blatant teasing; as an adult, he faced subtle discrimination. In his two years at Friends, he found acceptance. “Teachers used to ask my parents, ‘How do we treat him?’

Robert Hammer Jr., G’07, crosses the finish line in the Salty Dog Triathlon Aug. 11 in Hutchinson, Kan. Born with cerebral palsy, Hammer used a racing wheelchair to complete the 3.1-mile running portion of the triathlon. He also swam 400 meters and biked 10.5 miles, finishing in 1:49:36.

They would say, ‘Just like everybody else.’ That’s why Friends was such a neat experience. It really helped my self-esteem to accomplish this.” Carol Bergley, assistant director of Student Account Services, bonded with Hammer while helping sort out his financial aid. He deflected most of her attempts to help him physically, but ultimately she was inspired by his independence. “A lot of times he would be winded when he got to my office, and we would visit more because I didn’t want him just to jump up and leave,” Bergley said. “One time when he wanted to see where his class was, he finally let me help carry his books. It wasn’t that he couldn’t do it, but I wanted to make it more comfortable for him.” Hammer, who commuted to classes from his home in Lyons, said he did get frustrated, especially in his worst subject: math. “I relied a lot on the teachers for motivation and support, when I got to thinking I couldn’t do it,” he said. “I got lucky, I guess. People come along in your life when you need them.” And eventually jobs do, too. Hammer now works for DCSSAbility, a firm that employs people with disabilities, doing web research for the Department of Defense from home. Last fall, as a result of his boss’ nomination, he received a REACH award from Community Development and Financial Resources, which honors the accomplishments of people with disabilities. “I got to thinking how hard I’d worked over the last couple of years, between school and the triathlon. And I thought, in a way I do deserve this,” Hammer said.” I’d just never been one to have the light shined on me.” Hammer has also been appointed by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to the State Rehabilitation Council for a three-year term. He hopes to shine his own light on an issue close to his heart: knocking down barriers for the disabled in the workplace.

Often, they see things — poverty, injustice, political power — that challenge assumptions. “We help them get face to face with people outside their comfort zones,” said Dr. Usrey, who has worked on six continents. “It helps them understand there aren’t easy solutions to these problems. It’s not necessarily providing them all the answers but

helping them ask the right questions.” A better understanding of cultures and world issues, and of our place in the world, is just one benefit. “Employers look for people who have had a varied experience, expanding your world view. It’s hard to imagine very many businesses today that don’t have a global presence,” Dr. Gibson said. The students who spend time in Cancun gain the marketable skill of a second language. Dr. Smartt recalls one student with a double major in accounting and Spanish. She landed a job at a Denver accounting firm over other candidates because of her fluency. Fields such as social services reward secondlanguage knowledge, as do graduate schools. Studying abroad is just one part of an international education, Dr. Usrey said. Other pieces include visiting faculty and Friends University faculty teaching overseas.

Apartment housing keeps the trip affordable — $1,150 this year. “The most fun we had was when we had a pocket map of London and spent hours walking miles all through London,” Tiede said. “The fun part was trying to pretend we were just part of the city.” On the train from Scotland, VanSant spent hours talking with a Brit about politics on both sides of the pond: “That was my favorite part, talking to a normal guy who wanted to talk about what his Great Britain was.” Wilson graduated from Friends 1991 and completed his graduate work in 1996. He’s returned to London several times with Dr. Gibson as a chaperone. Walking where Shakespeare walked, riding trains, visiting quaint villages, seeing the white cliffs of Dover, “I really feel like it dramatically changed my life.” “You should leave college with a love of the arts, a love of literature. This experience solidifies all that,” Dr. Gibson said. “They’ll never be the same again. For a teacher, that’s what it’s all about.”

Friends University Donor Report

From thePresident Every so often organizations reach a benchmark moment that shows the progress they have made. During our 2006-07 year, we experienced one of those moments. Friends University reached a milestone of $50 million in its endowment and invested funds last fiscal year. This was coupled with an all-time fund-raising record of $8 million in contributions for 2006-07. It was not so long ago in the early 1990s that our endowment was only $2 million. This dramatic growth in our endowment and invested funds provides a stable source of income that provides much-needed scholarships for students seeking an independent education. Our endowment also helps to assure the University’s longevity by helping us weather any future challenges.

Our donors have played a key role in making these achievements possible. Enrollment success and careful administration of University resources have also played an important role. This special Donor Report section highlights the people who have helped Friends University achieve these milestones during our 2006-07 year. These alumni, donors, friends, corporations and foundations have confirmed their belief in the value of a Friends University education. Thank you for sharing in this belief, and thank you to all past donors who have helped provide a benchmark moment in Friends University’s history.

Dr. Biff Green Friends University President

From theVice President The 2006-07 year will clearly stand out as a banner year during my 17 years in fundraising at Friends University raising an alltime record of $8 million in contributions in one year thanks to the generosity of its many donors. Our previous record for contributions in one year was $5.4 million during the 2003-04 year. A large part of this record achievement was due to an estate gift of $3.2 million that was used to fund Presidential Scholarships. These are the most prestigious scholarships the University awards to incoming freshman and transfer students. We realize our donors have many options to choose from in making their charitable donations. Therefore, we are committed to using donations wisely. We

take our role as good stewards of your resources very seriously. Our Donor Report section highlights those individuals or companies who donated between July 1, 2006, and June 30, 2007. To the individuals, businesses and foundations listed in this report, thank you. We appreciate your ongoing support of Friends University. To those of you who did not donate during the 2006-07 year, we invite you to participate by contributing to Friends during this current fiscal year if you have not already done so.

13th Annual President’s Golf Tournament

By Aaron Winter, G’99/M’02, Director of Annual Giving

The 13th Annual President’s Golf Tournament was held Oct. 5, 2007, at Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Newton. Players were greeted by unseasonably warm and windy weather; but considering the time of year, it was a very good day for golf. This year’s winning team was Mark Cox, G’84, Rick King, Victor Polley and Darrel Tasker with a gross score of 61 (-11). Second place gross went to Brian Orth, G’99, Brian Haberly, G’99, Branden Stephenson, FS’97 and Marc Blackim with a score of 63 (-9). In the net score division, the winning team was Aaron Winter, G’99/M’02, Harry Winter, Garry Winter and Mark Winter with a net score of 52. Several teams tied for second place with a net score of 54, but as a result of a scorecard playoff, Mike King, Dan Moratto, Joe Rheem and Steve Yates were declared the second place team. Individual awards went to Mark Cox for longest putt, Joey Todd for longest drive and Steve Yates for closest to the pin. Thank you to all of our players, volunteers, hole sponsors and prize donors for making this year’s tournament such a great success!

Friends Annual Fund Shortly before the end of the year, many of you received a request in support of our annual fund. This mailing served as what we have historically called our Reverse Phonathon and was the first major opportunity to support Friends University this fiscal year. For those missing this opportunity to donate through the mail, our next major campaign, the Phonathon, began February 4. Unless we have already received a gift from you, or you have indicated to us that you do not wish to be contacted by phone,

there is a good chance you will receive a call during the Phonathon. As always, it is important to emphasize that every contribution, no matter how big or small, is truly important to the University. Donations to the Friends Annual Fund benefit virtually every area of campus, with our students benefiting most. If you have not already made a gift to Friends University and would like to do so, please feel free to utilize the postage paid envelope located in this magazine. Thank you for your continued support!

sembly and the Environmental Club. Providing our donors and volunteers with the opportunity to speak to some of the students who may be benefiting from their generosity is always one of our favorite things to do each year. We look forward to continuing to call you well into the future.

A CAREFULLY CONSIDERED ESTATE PLAN MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO EMPHASIZE YOUR CORE PERSONAL VALUES.

PLANNED giving

Grandpa’s Wishes An indelible memory I have of my summer visits to my grandparents is going to Hutch (Hutchinson, Kan.) so Grandma could pick up her needed items. Grandpa, my older sister and I would sit in his Olds 88 watching people walk by while Grandma scurried from store to store picking up sewing supplies, canning items, etc. At the time, I didn’t understand why we had to stay in the car, but I later realized those were special times for Grandpa. This was his way of teaching me about life and what was important to him: paying attention to details, being a good listener and observer, patience and perseverance, and sacrificing for the benefit of others. Grandpa was an everyday farmer, with no particular money management expertise, but he was a good observer, planner and saver. He was concerned about transferring not only his wealth to those people and causes he cared about, but also his values. So he crafted his estate plan to reflect both.

❏ ❏ ❏

While no one would suggest that an estate plan should do the whole job, the way in which gifts are made – even the transfer of final bequests – have a significant impact on the recipient. A carefully considered plan makes it possible to emphasize the core personal values that form the foundation for success as a parent, grandparent and responsible contributing member of society. Examples abound: Bill and Melinda Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet and the numerous people listed on the preceding pages of the 2006-07 Donor Report! These pages of names reflect the core personal values of each individual. An alumnus expressed it quite succinctly: “Friends University is just so much of who we are and equipped us for life.” We hope you will also consider including Friends University in your plans. As you have seen in this issue, hundreds of people are making a difference at Friends University as a result of their thoughtfulness and generosity. Ev-

Students at Friends University’s 1930 Cherry Carnival.

Then and Now Cherry Carnival: 80th in ’08

Friends University President Dr. Lowell Roberts throws pies at the 1963 Cherry Carnival.

BY ROMAN RODRIGUEZ, JUNIOR

In the last 80 years of Friends University’s history, winter means Cherry Carnival. The YWCA hosted the first carnivallike event March 2, 1929. University clubs and organizations, and students were invited to host booths. The event was called Salvo the first year then changed to Cherry Carnival in 1930. Gary Rapp, director of campus life, said the name is derived from the celebration of George and Martha Washington and the story of the cherry tree, and it may have been chosen due to the carnival taking place near President’s Day. The Best All-around Man and Woman honor, similar to current-day royalty, is another aspect of early Cherry Carnivals that has lasted through the years. The 1929 student newspaper, University Life, reported, “Tickets to the ‘Pandemonium’ will give you 25 votes for your favorite.” Cherry Carnival has grown from one event to a week of events. The dance was added soon after the carnival’s inception and events in recent years include bowling, a movie night and the chili cook-off.

Find the Cherry is a popular event that lasts all week. Students are given clues that lead to a golden cherry hidden on campus. This year’s 80th anniversary celebration, Feb. 4 - 9, included events themed over the decades: a video game night, disco roller-skating, a retro game show and an old-fashioned soda shop. The 1940’s-style Welcome Home dance was a throwback to troops returning from World War II. Falcon Activities and Campus Events (FACE) now hosts Cherry Carnival events. FACE is a division of and funded by the Student Government Association. Although the week of events has changed and grown over the years, the spirit of the carnival remains as lively as it was in 1929.
