A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT MacMurray College Board of Trustees
Dear alumni and friends, This summer I had the opportunity to spend eight weeks in an RV traveling the country visiting members of MacNation. Along the way, I spoke with hundreds of alumni and friends in 33 states. I talked with more alumni on the trip than I had cups of coffee, and if you followed my travels on social media, you know that number was high. By the time I returned to campus, one thing rang true – the Mac Fam is alive and well all across the United States! In this issue of MacNews, we focus on the sciences. This field of study is a part of an overall academic fabric that has been inspiring achievement and empowering students to make a difference since 1846. The sciences have produced hundreds of Mac alumni who have done wonderful work around the globe. Betty Lowell ’45 Cottle battled her way into the medical field at a time when women were told to stay at home and Norman Foster ’73 is a professor in the neurology department and the director of the Center for Alzheimer’s Care, Imaging and Research at the University of Utah. These are just two examples that you will read about in this issue. As you may already know, MacMurray College is in the midst of much positive change and I ask that everyone in the Mac Fam be a part of this important chapter in
the life of the College. The MacNation Tour allowed me to interact with a significant number of our alumni and to speak with them personally about how essential they are to the future success of the College. As we move forward, we have important opportunities for success. The campus community continues to work diligently to implement the College’s strategic and master plans. These plans will play a key role when the Higher Learning Commission review team visits in December to re-evaluate our accreditation status. I am confident our hard work will pay off and the sanction will be lifted by the HLC. This is a challenging time for the College, but it is also a great opportunity to invest in the future as well as reclaim the rich history on which MacMurray College has built its reputation. I invite you to rally around MacMurray College and help carry on the traditions that have made this College such an important part of your personal history and the history of Jacksonville, Illinois. Sincerely,
Mr. John Blythe ‘74 Ms. Lisa Sappenfield Boyer Mr. Robert Clary ‘80 Mr. Jeff Davidsmeyer ‘85 Ms. Kay Laub Davidsmeyer ‘75 Ms. Karen Lando DiRenzo ’84 Mr. Ernie Downey Mr. David Ekin ‘77 Mr. John Eyth Rev.

Commencement 2 0 17 MacMurray College held its 166th annual Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 13, in Annie Merner Chapel. Jacksonville native Kathryn Thomson, vice president and associate general counsel for Amazon, gave the keynote address. Thomson’s commencement address urged the graduating class to use the tools provided by their MacMurray education to embrace transitions and challenges in the future, and she made reference to Eleanor Roosevelt’s commencement address at MacMurray in 1947, urging students to “do the thing you think you cannot do to make the world a better place.” The Class of 2017 included 127 graduates. Brandon Staves ’17 was this year’s student speaker and he encouraged his fellow graduates to ask questions and ask for help as they work on achieving their career goals. During the ceremony, Dr. John Cox was awarded Provost Emeritus for his continuous service at MacMurray for over 15 years; an Honorary Doctor of Commerce, Accounting and Business degree was bestowed upon Russell Patton, a MacMurray alumnus; Thomson was given an Honorary Doctor of Law; and Fred D. Lomprez III ’17 was awarded the Gwen Livingstone Pokora Academic Excellence Award for achieving the highest standard of academic excellence in his graduating class. 2

MacMurray College appoints new provost Beverly Rodgers joined MacMurray College as the new Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and Student Life following a national search last fall. Rodgers came to MacMurray in February from Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kansas, where she served as Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, and professor of anthropology. She previously served as vice president at Leech Lake Tribal College in Cass Lake, Minnesota and was a professor and chair of the Arthur Morgan Fellows at Antioch College in Yellow
Springs, Ohio. “It is my pleasure to welcome Dr. Rodgers to MacMurray,” President Tierno said. “Her knowledge and experience in higher education will greatly benefit MacMurray College and help advance the College’s values that are rooted in the liberal arts.” The Provost serves as chief academic officer and has the responsibility for providing strategic leadership to MacMurray College, and to ensure the College’s faculty and academic programs are of the highest quality – promoting a culture of
student success. Rodgers, who holds a Ph.D. and a M.A. in anthropology from Ohio State University, said that during the interview process she came to understand the strength of the MacMurray community. “The faculty, staff, administration and students exemplified a caring and motivated community dedicated to having MacMurray College present the best educational opportunities possible,” Rodgers said. “Quite simply, I want to be part of that team.” John Cox, who served as interim provost, remained in
the role until Feb. 20. “I want to thank John Cox for providing MacMurray with excellent leadership,” Tierno said. “The work he was able to accomplish at the College made the position of provost highly attractive.”
Deaf UFC fighter speaks to students
MacMurray purchases Franklin Elementary MacMurray College purchased the old Franklin Elementary School building on the corner of South Clay Avenue and Franklin Drive located across from Freesen Football Field on campus. The College’s initial plan is to use a portion of the property for the MacMurray wrestling team. The building will house offices for the coaches and be used for team practices. Additional plans for the building are 4
still under discussion and will be a part of the campus master facilities plan once completed. “We are excited to move forward on this project,” Marcy Jones, director of communications and marketing, said. “Plans for this property are still in the development stage so we will have a better understanding of how we will fully utilize this building once those plans are complete.”
Deaf amateur wrestler and mixed martial artist Matt “The Hammer” Hamill spoke at MacMurray College on Feb. 16. Hamill, the first-ever deaf UFC fighter, talked about how he climbed to the top – beating the odds. Born in Loveland, Ohio, Hamill has been deaf since birth, but he never let that hold him back. He won three NCAA Division III National Championships
at Rochester Institute of Technology and won the gold and silver medals for wrestling in the 1997 Deaflympics. Hamill competed in the Light Heavyweight division of the UFC and was also on Spike TV’s “Ultimate Fighter 3.” As an advocate for deaf and hard-of-hearing groups, Hamill was the subject of the 2010 movie “The Hammer,” about his early life and wrestling career.

College implements two-school academic structure MacMurray College has reorganized its academic structure by creating a twoschool model – the School of Professional Studies and the School of Arts and Sciences – with senior directors overseeing each school. “The two-school system will be a better fit for a college of MacMurray’s size,” Provost Beverly Rodgers said. Previously, the College’s academic structure included seven divisions with faculty members, known as division chairs, handling the administrative workload as well as normal classroom responsibilities. “That proved to be unwieldy,” Rodgers said.
“With the two schools, we will have two senior directors reporting directly to me, handling the day to day, allowing faculty members to focus on the classroom and their students.” Bruce Liebe, assistant professor of criminal justice and homeland security, will lead the School of Professional Studies, and RJ Stewart, President Joseph R. Harker professor of philosophy and religion, will lead the School of Arts and Sciences. “The new two-school structure will foster a dynamic and creative working relationship between the professional programs and traditional
Liebe liberal arts programs and curriculum,” Stewart said. “It will also help the academic program areas run more efficiently, and will enhance communication between all constituents of the College.” Liebe said that MacMurray College is making great strides forward to further improve
Stewart the administration and operation of the College. “In the end, this will benefit the students by enhancing the product we deliver,” Liebe said. “In turn, their academic experience will likewise be enhanced.” The new academic structure has been fully implemented for the 2017 Fall Semester.
MacMurray partners with Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute at the University of Illinois
MacMurray College has developed an academic relationship with the Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute (CIRI) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The College’s Senior Director of the School of Professional Studies,
Bruce Liebe, furthered the partnership concept by hosting David M. Nicol director of the Information Trust Institute, and Randall J. Sandone, CIRI executive director. “Your perspectives and insights were most valuable and we are delighted to
have you as a CIRI Partner Institution,” Sandone said. “We look forward to integrating your program into our ongoing CIRI research, education and workforce development initiatives.” The Institute conducts research and education that enhances the resiliency of the nation’s critical infrastructures, and the businesses and public entities that own and operate those assets and systems. CIRI is one of 10 Centers of Excellence established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology
Directorate’s Office of University Programs. “I envision joint research efforts, internships and faculty professional development opportunities among the mutually beneficial outcomes,” said Liebe. “Critical infrastructure resiliency will continue to be a challenge for government, private sector and nonprofit organizations for the foreseeable future and collaboration is needed to reduce overall risk.”

HLC assurance argument update During the week of July 24, Monday through Friday, the Assurance Argument Team met together to revise and complete the draft of the assurance argument. The Team includes Dr. Eric Berg, Dr. Allan Metcalf, Kathleen White, Susan Eilering, Dr. Matthew Wiediger and Susan Hall. The assurance argument is MacMurray’s response to the concerns expressed by the Higher Learning Commission when placing MacMurray on probationary status. The document itself can only be 40,000 words. However, that’s rather misleading. We will upload and link many, many documents as evidence of what we have written. These documents include the College’s mission statement, core values, institutional learning outcomes, mission and purpose statements for all
the divisions and departments within the College, the most recent budget and audit findings, programmatic learning outcomes, etc. As I said, many, many documents! The Team based our forward movement on the Strategic Plan and the Campus Master Plan. We have been careful to align our actions with those two documents and will continue to do so moving forward. As each day passed, we edited and revised nearly every sentence to demonstrate that we had addressed each concern of the Higher Learning Commission. We searched and asked others for documentation of our progress. The response from faculty and staff was truly awesome! Rarely did we have to wait even 24 hours for our requests to be fulfilled! Probably the most important thing I can convey
is that with each passing day the team felt more and more comfortable and confident that our progress goes well beyond what the Higher Learning Commission expected us to accomplish in this short time-frame and should be more than sufficient to have probationary status lifted. The Assurance Argument and linked documents will be uploaded to the Higher Learning Commission’s web site and submitted well before the October 9, 2017 deadline. The HLC evaluating team will be on campus in December. The Higher Learning Commission will meet and then provide their response to us in June of 2018. We are ready! Dr. Beverly Rodgers Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Life
MacMurray appoints new VP of Institutional Advancement and Enrollment Management MacMurray College is pleased to announce that David Hawsey has accepted the position of Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Enrollment Management. Hawsey served in an interim enrollment management role at MacMurray starting in July and quickly impressed the staff with his vast knowledge of higher education. He accepted the newly created position in August. “The MacMurray Family is not just a phrase, it is a real feeling you get once you understand the clear focus the faculty and staff have on our students,” Hawsey said. “While most colleges boast of being student-centered, MacMurray delivers a quality education in a handcrafted way that I have 6
not experienced at other colleges and universities.” Hawsey has served seven other colleges and universities over a 28-year career in higher education in fundraising and enrollment roles at Drexel University, Juniata College, Pacific Lutheran University, Penn State, Albion College, Emory & Henry College and most recently as VP for Enrollment Management and Marketing at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C. A Navy veteran who served two tours in the Middle East during the American hostage crisis in Iran, Hawsey worked in software development and corporate communications before beginning his career in higher education. President Mark Tierno said, “I am confident that David’s skills will assist us all in moving the College’s ambitious strategic plan forward. His role will be crucial in optimizing efforts in institutional advancement, marketing and recruiting to ensure a strong future for MacMurray College.”

Mac student has article published in police magazine
MacMurray College sophomore Alex Hafliger, double-major in criminal justice and homeland security, had an article published in the February 2017 edition of the American Police Beat magazine. The article, “Learning How Important Police Are: This Kid Gets It!,” recounts
his recent experience attending the Annual Central Illinois Policeman’s Ball. Hafliger credits this experience as the moment he realized the commitment and sacrifices required of law enforcement officers. “As a criminal justice student here at MacMurray College, I had the privilege of representing my school at an event in support of our nation’s local law enforcement,” said Hafliger. “Throughout the evening, I was constantly shocked by how little I knew about the personal aspect of law enforcement. I now
recognize that policing is not simply a job. Policing is a style of life, and an officer is never truly ‘off the clock.’” Hafliger, whose dream is to become an Illinois State Police Trooper, has developed an interest in writing through the inspiration of Robert Elliott, assistant professor of criminal justice, and Jamie Toland, his high school English teacher. In his first semester at MacMurray, Hafliger found out that Elliott was not only a retired Illinois State Police Trooper, but he’s also had articles published in the American
Police Beat. This set the course for Hafliger to write and submit an article himself. Along with the inspiration of Elliott, Hafliger said that he will never forget the words that Toland said to him, “If you’re passionate about one thing, and you’re just as passionate about another, then you aren’t doing yourself a favor by not just doing both. Why would anyone want to do anything else?” Hafliger plans to continue studying what he’s passionate about, as well as writing more on the subject.

Director Liebe article in national journal Bruce Liebe, senior director of the school of professional studies and assistant professor of homeland security, wrote an article, “ICS and Unified Command: A Decade Later,” that is featured in the fall 2016 edition of The Tactical Edge, which is the journal of the National Tactical Officers Association. The article examines the Incident Command System (ICS) which was mandated nationally through the National Incident Management System after 9/11. Specifically, Liebe examines the successes and shortcomings of ICS a decade after its implementation. Recommendations are made as to how identified shortcomings may be addressed. “An outcome of this article is that I am now collaborating with command personnel with the Oceanside (California) Police Department,” Liebe said. “The purpose of this collaboration is to identify potential approaches to address crisis decision making in the time between the incident commander’s arrival at a situation in chaos to a point where a level of order has been restored. This period is commonly referred to as the golden hour and precedes the ability to implement ICS.”
Elliott travels to China to build academic relationships Robert Elliott, assistant professor of criminal justice and homeland security, was in China this year advocating for MacMurray College’s involvement with colleges and universities in China. While there, Elliott met with a university vice-president, college deans, professors and students. He said that he now has a contact for a live videoconference during his Fall 2017 MacMurray College First Year Experience class. “My take away from the trip is that the college administrators in China are anxious to establish partnerships with U.S. colleges,” Elliott said.
Dr. Berg to chair special session at Camus conference Dr. Eric Berg, professor of philosophy, has been asked by the Albert Camus Society to chair a special session on teaching Camus at the Joint U.S./U.K. Albert Camus Society Conference held at the Pedagogical University of Kraków in Poland in November of 2017. The proceedings of the conference will be published and Berg will serve as editor of the English version of the text.
Social work students present research to city council In January, Dr. Joe Squillace, lead faculty and professor of the Social Work Program, and students Megan Burtle, Mackenzie Kelly, Samantha Knox, Chelsie Owen and Jasmine Warren presented their research on the Jacksonville Commission on Disabilities and Human Relations Needs Assessment to the Jacksonville City Council. The needs assessment analyzes key issues from the perspective of Morgan County citizens relating to employment, education, transportation, health care, housing, food and nutrition, and access to local government services. “We hope this to be an informative tool for public discussion and an informative tool for the local municipal government, local organizations and businesses,” stated Squillace. “We do not take any official positions at the conclusion of this study; our hope is to provide an objective assessment of the data from respondent citizens of the survey to help inform public discussion and action. Our goal is the continued improvement of the community and the services it offers to the disabled and other minority communities.”

MacMurray student athletes play in DIII Classic Three MacMurray football players attended a three-day event where they were acquainted with coaches and teammates and competed in the Division III Senior Classic in Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Dec. 17. Coy Dorothy, DeAndre Harris and David Powell were each invited to participate in this high honor event following their successful season as Highlanders. The Senior Classic began in 2009 with hopes to create an All-Star game for Division III football players that would provide them the opportunity to be observed by pro scouts. The Senior Classic is built for the elite of Division III football, and gives small college athletes a chance at achieving professional status.
MacMurray Alumnus signs professional football contract
Four-year starter and MacMurray record holder Coy Dorothy ’17 signed a professional football contract with the Cedar Rapids Titans of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Dorothy joined the Titans in week 13 of play following his graduation from MacMurray College, and has agreed to a contract for the remainder of the 2017 season as a quarterback. “I was super excited and blessed to receive the call that they were going to offer me a contract,” Dorothy said. “After my tryout, I had received positive feedback so I definitely had
high hopes.” During his time at MacMurray College, Dorothy was named to the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference first all-conference team twice, and broke every quarterback career statistic in MacMurray’s record books. Following his 2017 contract, Dorothy discussed moving back home to Hamilton, Ill. to continue on with his passion for the game. “I hope to begin my career in the business world, but it would mean everything to have the opportunity to coach within my hometown community,” said Dorothy. “Reflecting back to where I started as a player and as a person goes back to my coaches. My coaches did not just teach plays on the field, but life lessons of which I am forever grateful. I want to do that. I want to pay it forward and help others reach their full potential.” The Titans are a part of the Indoor Football League (IFL) which consists of ten teams across the United States. The IFL entered its ninth season of play this year and has several alumni that have moved on to the national football league.
Long reaches career milestone MacMurray College forward, Brent Long captured his 1,000th career point on Jan. 28 against Greenville College. “This is a great accomplishment for Brent,” said Head Men’s Basketball Coach Todd Creal. “Scoring 1,000 points at any level is a true testament to the ability of being consistently competitive.” Long averaged 19.7 points a game and put up double digits, points and rebounds throughout the team’s 25 games. With his consistency, Creal has no doubts that Long is on pace to place a spot in the MacMurray record books for points and rebounds. Long’s play this year earned him second team All-Conference honors and he finished the 2016-17 season with 470 points and 226 rebounds. “He has one more year, and I expect he will quickly climb the scoring list here at MacMurray. At his current rate he could easily finish top five all-time,” Coach Creal said.
For eight weeks this summer, MacMurray College President Mark Tierno lived in an RV as he traveled across the United States to “rally the alumni.” The President’s MacNation Tour officially began on June 1 with a kick-off party in Jacksonville, Illinois, where Tierno unveiled the RV that was uniquely wrapped for the tour. President Tierno traveled for 55 days and drove 14,169 miles through 33 states where he attended 66 alumni events and donor visits. He met over 850 alumni, friends and students from all over the country as he made his way through Southern California, the Pacific Northwest, the Heartland, East Coast and all throughout the South. “The tour was about reconnecting with alumni and reconnecting the College with the people who matter most, and I think to a great extent we have achieved that,” President Tierno said. “The future of MacMurray College will be determined by the interest, involvement and commitment of the alumni, so I went out into the United States of America to rally the alumni.” He had six co-drivers join him for the ride which included various members of the Jacksonville community and MacMurray alumni and staff. There was even a “Flat Mark” that joined in on the adventure. (Read more about “Flat Mark’s” adventures on page 12.) The various alumni events ranged from watching the San Diego Padres play the Cincinnati Reds at Petco Park in San Diego, Calif., cruising on Lake Minnetonka in Minneapolis, Minn. to watching our very own MacMurray alumni perform in Mary Poppins at The Muni in Springfield, Ill. and War Paint in New York City. Throughout the trip, President Tierno connected with the Spirit of MacNation in ways that he never imagined when he started. “The core values of Mac - Knowledge, Faith, Service, Wisdom, Duty, Reverence – they really mean something to the people I’ve met,” President Tierno said. “I found that Spirit all over the United States and the Spirit of MacNation has returned to campus,” President Tierno said as the new school mascot, Mac the Highlander, walked out from the MacNation RV. (Read more about Mac the Highlander on page 13.) “We’re all about the students,” President Tierno said. “All of this effort has been so that we will have a fantastic place for students to come and study and learn and have a future. This is MacMurray College.” 10 10 10

FACETIME HIGHLANDERS HISTORY...AND THE NEW MASCOT Depictions of the MacMurray mascot over the past 60 years.
The story of Mac the Highlander began with the College’s eighth president, Dr. Clarence McClelland, and James MacMurray, a wealthy and prominent Chicago businessman and former Illinois state senator. In 1926, the two men, both from Scottish backgrounds, worked together to launch a twenty-year campaign that would expand the campus of, what was known then as, the Illinois Women’s College. By 1931, the College had added a science building, dining hall and a residence hall as well as changing its name to the MacMurray College for Women in honor of Sen. MacMurray’s generosity. After the MacMurray College for Men was established and the first class of men arrived in 1957, the freshmen were given the opportunity to choose the College’s mascot and seal. Sticking to our Scottish heritage, the freshmen chose the Highlanders, the Tullibardine tartan plaid (the plaid of the Murray clan), and the Highland Times as the name for the school newspaper. The students were also given three different seals to choose from that were designed by Howard Sidman, an art professor at the College. On July 26, 2017, our mascot officially embodied the Spirit of MacMurray College and Mac the Highlander was re-introduced to alumni, students and friends of the College. Donned in the official MacMurray College tartan, Mac reminds us all to show our highlander spirit and to be proud to call MacMurray College our alma mater.

A CAMPUS TRADITION IN THE
SCIENCES The sciences at MacMurray College are an integral part of a liberal arts education, which can lead to even greater understanding and pursuits inside and outside of the campus community. We are proud to feature a number of accomplished alumni who have taken their education beyond the confines of the campus classroom, and expanded their influence and knowledge into the wider world.
“MacMurray College showed me the wide range of possibilities. I was also exposed to the many broad areas of intellectual life.” - Dr. Norman L. Foster ‘73 14 14
Thinking broadly about the brain
Dr. Norman L. Foster, M.D. ‘73 said he appreciates the liberal arts education he received at MacMurray College now more than ever. The ways it has come into play for the Director of the Center for Alzheimer’s Care, Imaging and Research (CACIR) and Professor of Neurology at the University of Utah are, though, “completely unpredictable,” he admitted. u Recently reading a book on phenomenology, the philosophical study of the structures of experience and consciousness, summoned for Foster the memory of former MacMurray philosophy professor and author Richard Palmer. u At the University of Utah, Foster team taught, with an ethnologist and a music composer, an undergraduate course on Aging and Alzheimer’s, an interdisciplinary approach that included literature, anthropology, music and medicine. u The development of what may be a groundbreaking dementia care mobile device, which recently got another round of funding from the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health, has put to use Foster’s marketing and business skills. Foster may have known walking into MacMurray that he wanted to be a physician, but “I don’t know if I would have attended so many theatre performances or so many concerts if I hadn’t been exposed to all the disciplines and all the academic areas (I was exposed to),” he said. The Jacksonville, Ill. native also got a sage piece of advice at his dorm orientation at Michelson Hall. “(The presenter) told us that this was a rare opportunity to define who we were,” said Foster. “I remembered that.” A biology and chemistry major who trained at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Foster spent two-plus decades as a faculty member at the University of Michigan where he founded the state’s first dementia clinic before helping establish CACIR. Foster, who is also a Senior Investigator at The Brain Institute at the University of Utah, has carved out an international reputation in the field of neurology with his research focused primarily on brain imaging. Foster and his colleagues have recently shown that positron emission tomography (PET) imaging that produces 3-D color images of the functional processes within the human body can help distinguish between Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. An active version of the Memory Care Partner, a smartphone application and tablet computer Foster and a team of researchers developed that will provide guidance to patients and families with concerns about memory loss, is currently being tested. The goals, said Foster, are to help people “better navigate the often daunting process of seeking quality memory loss care” along with providing patients “a high quality of life and keeping social connections.” “These are difficult discussions to have,” acknowledged Foster, concerning the subject of memory loss. “This is a threat to self-image. It’s disruptive. It requires changes in lifestyles that people are unwilling to take. “With Memory Care Partner, we’re trying to reach people before they meet the clinical threshold.” Foster, a presenter at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in London earlier this summer, said he’s convinced that time he spent as a youth with older neighbors and his ability to easily communicate with them shepherded his way to the field. “I’m challenged intellectually by complexity. I rush towards it,” admitted Foster, who received the College’s Young Alumni Award in 1983 and Honorary Doctor of Science in 1995. “I’ve always been attracted by doing things that can make a difference. “Between those two things, how much more can you ask for?” - Steven Spearie ’87
Louis P. and Evelyn A. Foster Fund for Scholarly Pursuits funds faculty and student research This past spring the MacMurray College Chemistry Department teamed up with the Illinois Grape Growers and Vinters Association to determine if chemical components of Rosé wines can be correlated with sensory appeal. Nadine Szczepanski ‘79, Shonle Professor of Chemistry, and junior biology major and chemistry minor, Victoria Trujillo (pictured), of Red Bud, Ill., presented their research proposal to the College community on Dec. 8 in Julian Hall. Trujillo finished the research and presented their poster on the research at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Washington, DC in August. The project is part of a faculty and student team research initiative made possible by the Louis P. and Evelyn A. Foster Fund for Scholarly Pursuits. Established by Dr. Norman ‘73 and Dr. Carol Foster, the Louis P. and Evelyn A. Foster Fund for Scholarly Pursuits honors Mr. and Mrs. Foster’s commitment to education and recognizes the importance of creating opportunities for students to engage in research. Throughout MacMurray’s rich history, one finds many examples where the opportunity to engage in an exciting research project led to previously unimagined careers. The purpose of the fund is to stimulate interest of both faculty and students in academic pursuits of all kinds and to challenge them to think in new ways and inspire them to accomplish more than they previously thought possible. In addition, the Louis P. and Evelyn A. Foster Fund for Scholarly Pursuits serves as a stimulus to other donors to contribute toward this goal.

Creating a life of
SERVICE Betty Lowell ’45 Cottle grew up the daughter of a Methodist minister in Brooklyn, New York, during the Great Depression. Like most families during that time, they had no money but her father understood the value of an education. As any good Methodist minister would do, he looked for a Methodist college that would give his daughter a quality education at a fair price. He found MacMurray College. “I came here on a Greyhound Bus in 1942 and spent three years at MacMurray,” Cottle said. “I went two semesters in the summer so I could graduate early. I got here simply because my father looked up the schools where, as a preacher’s kid, I could get a reasonable discount and receive a quality education.” Cottle spent much of her time
studying and working. “I was always looking for a way to make money because we didn’t have any. I waited tables in McClelland Hall. I got a job at the National Enamel and Stamping Company which I was able to work at because I knew how to use a scale through my experience in chemistry.” It was in chemistry and mathematics where Cottle shined – with a goal of continuing to medical school. “MacMurray wasn’t known for chemistry and math at that point,” Cottle said. “I was actually really concerned by that at the time. Graduating from MacMurray, which was unknown back east, and to be a female and to get into medical school was a real accomplishment.” In fact, Cottle was accepted into three medical schools – Long Island College of Medicine, Columbia and New York University (NYU). “I had to decide between three great schools, which was a tough choice,” Cottle said. To help with the decision, she visited Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan which was divided into four sections – Columbia, Cornell, NYU and what they called an open division. Since Cottle was accepted at Columbia and NYU, she went to see both schools in action. “I noticed the NYU students had dirty lab coats, that
had to mean they were more involved in the work; while the Columbia students had nice white starched lab coats so I figured they couldn’t be working or doing anything. So, I chose, much to everybody’s surprise, NYU.” As fortunate as she was to be accepted at three great medical schools, it was never easy trying to make it in a field of nearly all men at a time when women were assumed to stay home and take care of the family. When she arrived at NYU, Cottle was in a class that consisted of 128 men and five women. It was a constant battle everywhere she went, one that she never stopped fighting. “Women were not plentiful,” Cottle said. “In fact, the first 10 years of my career were spent listening to men tell me I was taking the place of a man who could practice.” Cottle’s career started in Brooklyn practicing anesthesiology. Her husband, Harold, who she met during their residency, was working in the field of forensic pathology. “My husband was mostly tied into academia, and I practiced anesthesiology in Brooklyn, became chairman of a department and had a clinical professorship,” Cottle said. “We did that for a while, had three children and suddenly we got tired, restless with New York City.” After some searching, they settled on the Altoona area of Pennsylvania. “We moved mostly because my husband could do his forensics,” Cottle said. “And when I got there, I’ll tell you, they weren’t too happy with me in Pennsylvania trying to work in the medical field.” There were no women physicians in the area. Cottle’s résumé was just as good as or better than any man, but she was consistently asked questions like “who will take care of your home?” This type of thinking kept her working in New York and traveling back and forth to Pennsylvania. After about a year, she was finally offered a position at Mercy Hospital in Altoona – a place she would be associated with in several capacities from an Attending to a Medical Director until she retired at age 75. Today, Cottle still lives in the same house near Altoona that she has for over 40 years. At 92 years old, she stays as active as she can – you can find her swimming in her pool almost every day during the summer. Cottle feels very fortunate to have had the choices she has had after graduating from MacMurray. “MacMurray was a great place, they treated me very well,” Cottle said. “I have to tell you though, I married a man that went to Dartmouth and his attitude was to call MacMurray a little cow college – but let me tell you – that little cow college got me accepted into three medical schools.”
Graduates speak on campus about careers in healthcare Kelli Ruppel ’11 Turner is a Certified Physician Assistant working for Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield. She is also contracted to work at the University of Illinois Springfield as a primary care provider in the campus Health Services’ Clinic. Turner believes that MacMurray College helped prepare her for where she is today. “MacMurray provided me with a skillset to not only succeed in graduate school, but also in my career,” Turner said. “At MacMurray, I feel that a sense of community and teamwork were greatly emphasized which has helped me to collaborate with my colleagues.” She also credits MacMurray for teaching her how to better understand other cultures and their beliefs, as well as encouraging her to think freely and independently as she lives a life full of learning. All of these tools, along with the guidance of caring professors, which she received at MacMurray have given her the skills she needs to assess, diagnose and treat the many patients she sees on a daily basis.

Emmilyne Having ’10, Pharmacy Manager at Wal-Mart in Keokuk, Iowa, always knew she wanted to go into healthcare as her profession. It runs in her family. Her mother worked as an LPN and her father was a medic in the military. Having was also impacted by her years at MacMurray. “I met some amazing people at Mac that truly helped shape me into the person I am today.” Having continued, “I learned that stuff doesn’t always go as planned, especially in chemistry lab, and sometimes you have to re-evaluate things and take a new approach. That has benefited me a lot in my career.” She returned to campus in April 2016 along with fellow alumna Kelli Ruppel Turner. The two spoke with current students about their careers, applying for graduate school and their experiences at Mac. 17

MIXING IT UP An intriguing combination of chemistry and art
Lillian Gischke Korous graduated cum laude from MacMurray College in 1960, a place that prepared her for a career in chemistry. Korous was always fascinated with science and that passion was honed during her years at MacMurray College. “Just by coming and visiting, I liked what I saw,” Korous said. “It was a small women’s college not too far from home, a train ride away, and I felt that women’s education was taken seriously at MacMurray.” However, it was the Cartwright Scholarship she was awarded that sealed the deal. “That and a small job in the mail room sorting mail almost cleared tuition for me,” Korous said. “My parents could not afford much, so this was all very good.” When Korous was a first-year student, there were five chemistry majors in her class – all women since MacMurrary was still a women’s college in 1956. “All of us were taken seriously as learners by Dr. William Baily and Dr. Bruce Campbell who were inorganic and organic chemistry professors, respectively.” After graduation, she accepted a position at UOP Inc., a petroleum process development company that also manufactured catalysts and food additives. Korous worked in UOP labs in Des Plaines and McCook, Illinois for a total of 26 years where she developed analytical methods using gas chromatography. UOP allowed her time off for raising her children as well as some years working part-time to take care of family. She retired as a senior development chemist in 1993 along with her husband, Jim, who worked at UOP for 37 years. They raised two children, a daughter and a son. Their daughter, Jill Korous Kording graduated from Mac in 1990 with a BSN in nursing, and is currently on staff at Passavant Hospital in Jacksonville. Korous has lived in Jacksonville since 2006 to be with her daughter and family after her husband of 41 years passed away in 2005. She keeps busy being creative and has had some of her work featured in an art show at MacMurray in 2010. She especially enjoys painting with acrylics, watercolors and pastels, writing, and spending time in her garden. 18
Athletic interests lead to work in gene therapy Emily Moffit Nance ’08 currently works as a research technician for the Indiana University Vector Production Facility where she examines and tests vectors used in gene therapy to see if they are safe to be used on patients. “It is very exciting to be a part of something that has potential to save millions of lives,” she said. Although Nance originally came to MacMurray to study physical therapy, she found that the smaller class sizes allowed for more oneon-one time with professors, as well as the ability to thrive and explore different areas within the Biology major. She also gained the experience of working with a team as she was assigned to work in small groups for a number of different projects. “Being exposed to this prepared me for life after college, especially life within a research lab setting,” Nance stated. “I work in close proximity with people who are from all over the globe.” While at MacMurray, Nance was also impacted by her softball coach, Coach Whitaker, and says that most of her fondest memories during her time at Mac involve the softball team.

Meeting challenges on campus leads to even greater success “MacMurray College contributed a great deal to my future success. First and foremost, I received an excellent liberal arts education. Secondly, I had wonderful mentors in the biologic sciences - Dr. Herbert Sierke and Dr. Richard Freiburg. They challenged me to perform at a high level and always supported my interests in biologic research. Perhaps the most important contribution that MacMurray made to my career was to allow me to understand and achieve my intellectual potential. While facing the many challenges that occur during an undergraduate education, I gradually realized that I could meet the challenges and go on to even greater ones.” Dr. Andrew B. Onderdonk graduated from MacMurray College in 1969 with a bachelor of arts degree in biology. He was a member of the soccer team, in which he lettered and was a Varsity “M” member. After graduation, he attended the University of Missouri where he received his master’s degree in 1971 and his Ph.D. in 1973, both in microbiology. He conducted postdoctoral work as a public health service fellow in the Department of Medicine for UCLA, working in the Infectious Diseases Service. Onderdonk served as assistant professor of medicine, microbiology and veterinary medicine beginning in 1977 at Tufts University in Boston, Mass. In 1981, he began work as an associate professor in Tufts’ Department of Comparative Medicine, Microbiology and Pathology. Then in 1984, while working at Tufts, he began as a lecturer at Harvard University and in 1990 became associate professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School. In 1999, he was promoted to the rank of full professor at Harvard Medical School and was awarded an honorary master’s degree from Harvard University. His professional positions and appointments include work throughout Boston at Tufts New England Medical Center,
Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Channing Laboratory. He has served as a consultant to Scott Laboratories; Upjohn Pharmaceutical; Veterans Administration Central Office Research; Canadian Research Council in Toronto, Canada; Labline Industries; SmithKline Beecham; Proctor and Gamble; and Genzyme Corporation and Osmetech Ltd. in Crewe, England. He has also been involved with Alpha Beta Technology and the Museum of Science in Boston. In 1999, he was elected editor-in-chief for the Journal of Clinical Microbiology. In 2003, he was asked to serve as the principal investigator for Harvard Medical School Biodefense Laboratory, whose aim is to develop better diagnostic tests, vaccines and therapeutic agents as part of a federal government initiative to provide better protection against agents that may be used as biologic weapons. His work has included numerous major grants, postdoctoral fellows trained, and presentations given in Puerto Rico, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada, Germany and Thailand. He was the founder of the Society for Microbial Ecology and Disease and the co-founder of the International Society for Anaerobic Bacteria. His bibliography includes over 100 original published articles, numerous reviews and abstracts. His current research is focused on the study of the human microbiome, in collaboration with the Broad Institute at MIT, and the role of the neonatal intestinal microflora in the development of atopic responses in children. Onderdonk also recently completed a chapter for Harrison’s Textbook of Medicine, the most widely used reference text for physicians in the world. He holds several patents and has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in the World in 2008. - David Blanchette ’82 19

C O L L E G E
Dear Alumni, Friends and Family: I became a full-time member of the “Mac Fam” just a short while ago after serving two months as an interim consultant to various offices on campus. My original plan was to return to my North Carolina home in early October, but along the way something happened. Everyone continually talked about the “Mac Fam,” but without specific examples of what this meant I could not quite grasp the concept. Just a short while ago, I actually felt this phenomenon, and soon I did not want to leave. The MacMurray Family is best experienced through the personal attention and mentoring our professors provide their students, the ways in which our staff support daily life on campus, and the unusually high level of regard alumni hold for their alma mater. While many colleges say this, I have not seen this kind of commitment to preserving a culture of caring among the seven colleges and universities I’ve served over nearly three decades. It truly is remarkable. There is a new energy on campus, a feeling of real momentum. I invite you to be part of this momentum and MacMurray’s future by investing in one or more of our four categories of support: • The Annual Fund has immediate impact on the College and supports programs across campus. • The Endowment Campaign grows the “savings fund” for the College’s future. • The Highlander Athletic Fund provides direct support to improve athletic facilities. • The Presidential Priorities Campaign supports capital improvements and programs that benefit all of our students. I offer my personal thanks to all those donors who are recognized on the following pages. Your support is critical to moving MacMurray forward and on behalf of our entire campus, thank you for supporting us in this pivotal year! Sincerely, David Hawsey Vice President for Institutional Advancement & Enrollment Management

Dr. Nadine Szczepanski ‘79, Shonle Professor of Chemistry I have fond memories of my time as a student at Mac. I made life-long friends and got a great education from caring professors. I could not have attended Mac without a generous scholarship, for which I am grateful. I started teaching at Mac in 1991 and have seen many changes during the past 26 years. I am most excited about the changes occurring under President Tierno’s leadership. There is a real commitment to support the natural sciences and chemistry. I donate a small amount to the College every year because I want current and future students to have the same opportunities that I did. 27

MONTICELLO COLLEGE FOUNDATION The history of the Monticello College Foundation begins in 1838 with the founding of the Monticello Female Seminary by Captain Benjamin Godfrey, who made and lost several fortunes during his career of international trade and commerce in the Gulf of Mexico. Much like MacMurray College, this pioneering institution was dedicated exclusively to the education of women and was named after the Virginia estate of Thomas Jefferson, whom Godfrey greatly admired. Though many people scoffed at schooling for women, Godfrey felt it invaluable. Father to eight daughters, he was often quoted as saying, “If you educate a man you educate an individual; educate a woman and you educate a whole family.” With his third and final fortune in hand, Godfrey settled on the prairie to establish his college. The town that grew up around it would become Godfrey, Ill., and today the original campus grounds are home to Lewis and Clark Community College. Thankfully, Benjamin Godfrey’s vision and passion live on through the Monticello College Foundation which continues to support women in higher education. Here at MacMurray College, the Monticello College Foundation has had a tremendous impact on the lives of our students, providing scholarships to four outstanding young women annually since 1986. The scholarship is unique in that it is awarded to an incoming first-year student who then receives it each year until she graduates. Over the decades, the Monticello Scholarship has supported some of our brightest and highest achieving students, helping them thrive at MacMurray and beyond. Today, these women are excelling in their careers, working in our community and throughout the nation. They’re raising families and passing on their passion for knowledge and learning to their own children, just as Benjamin Godfrey envisioned nearly two centuries ago. Last fall, the Monticello College Foundation granted MacMurray College $24,000. Thanks to their generosity, another remarkable young woman graduated last spring. 32
THE GWEN LIVINGSTONE POKORA ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AWARD The Gwen Livingstone Pokora Academic Excellence Award is presented each year during the Commencement ceremony to the graduating senior who has achieved the highest standard of academic excellence in the graduating class. This award was established in 1997 by Richard Pokora in honor of his wife, Gwen Livingstone Pokora, class of 1972. The 2017 recipient of this noteworthy award was Fred D. Lomprez III.
FRED D. LOMPREZ III Fred graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor of science in accounting and business administration with a minor in finance. This past spring, he was inducted into the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society. This honor society recognizes top business students at over 250 schools across the United States and Europe. Fred, a Springfield, Ill. native, was an active member of the community. He worked within the Volunteer Tax Program last spring where several MacMurray accounting students helped community members submit their taxes. Congratulations to Fred on his great achievements!

Alumni Association Board The Alumni Association Board oversees the projects that are chosen for the Frances “Betsey” Swigart Memorial Fund for Campus Improvements.* This year, in celebration of their 50th class reunion and to honor their late classmate Frances “Betsey” Brooke, the class of 1966 donated upwards of $6,000 to the fund. The Alumni Board approved the use of this money to make further improvements to beautify the lounge in Kathryn Hall by providing new furniture to the area. Prospective students begin their tours at Kathryn Hall and are instantly stunned by the architecture of the first floor. Thank you to the class of 1966 for helping our recruitment efforts here at the College! *Interested in supporting a fund such as this?

Their 64-year marriage brought them five children, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren. John Chapman, the husband of JEAN LOGAN ’56 CHAPMAN of Jacksonville, IL, passed away June 13, 2017. Lowell Swearingen, the husband of JOAN RUPERT ’57 SWEARINGEN, died April 3, 2016.

5 RAY JAST ’69 of Verona, WI,
sent in this photo of a group of former Mac wrestlers who recently got together for a lunch gathering in Rockford, IL. Pictured left to right are KEN KOZELKA ’70 of Brookfield, IL, RON OTTO ’69 of Kenosha, WI, GARY HENNING ’69 of Rockford, IL, and RAY JAST ’69.
GREG WILLIAMS ’69, of Gloucester, MA, was incorrectly listed in the memorial section in the last issue of Mac News as class of 1968. We regret that error. His wife, JAN JOBE WILLIAMS ’68, sent the obituary for Greg and asked that several of his achievements be listed. At MacMurray (where Greg and Jan met), he studied math, physics and focused on civil engineering which led to a career in commercial construction. Since Greg was the grandson and nephew of builders, his life’s vocation seemed a natural fit. Some of Greg’s projects (where he was lead superintendent or general superintendent) include the Department of Transportation, the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, the University of Buffalo School of Medicine, the Boston University (BU) School of Management and the BU Center for Biomedical Research, Olin College Administration Building, the MIT Center for Learning and Memory, the MIT Center for Cancer Research, along with many other construction projects.
MARY DEFENBAUGH ’70 POLDEK, Ancona, IL, writes, “I have three children and 3.5 grandchildren; love to travel to Florida in the winter. I am enjoying retirement, though I still have an interest in the family farm.”

The focus of this Mrs. Pageant is that women should be celebrated for their ability to integrate beauty and intelligence into their busy lifestyles. Andrea is married to JEFF MOORE ’97. They have four beautiful children. The couple are well known in the area as Andrea is a local school teacher at Southwestern School District and teaches a technology class that promotes “Internet Safety for Kids.” Andrea’s husband, Jeff, has served as a South Jacksonville police officer and is now an Illinois State Police Trooper. They also both run their own home business. Andrea says, “My husband is my biggest supporter and without him, this pageant and the process of getting to where I am today would be impossible. I have always had an interest in pageants growing up, but it just never seemed like the right time for me. Now, with the strong support of my husband and family, I hope to bring a win home for the state and be your new Mrs. United States!” Her road to the Mrs. United States Pageant of 2017 will be filled with some appearances at events throughout the state. One of the things that she looks forward to the most is getting the experience of meeting new people.

Dr. Bone is survived by his wife, Louise Krussell Bone, a 1956 MacMurray College graduate. Dr. Bone will be remembered for his passion for education. He served over 25 years on the MacMurray College Board of Trustees and nine years on the Jacksonville School District 117 Board of Directors. He served as president of the Illinois College Alumni Association and for 10 years as alumni representative on the Illinois College Board of Trustees. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by Illinois College in 1989 and an honorary Doctor of Public Service degree from MacMurray College in 1990. As team physician, Dr. Bone was elected to the MacMurray College and Illinois College athletic halls of fame. Many will also remember Dr. Bone for his years of service in clinical medicine and surgery at the Bone-Scott Clinic on West State Street that he and his colleague, Dr. Harvey Scott opened in 1955. Over the years, Dr. Bone delivered over 4,500 babies. Dr. Bone graduated from Illinois College in 1936 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and then earned his Bachelor of Science in Medicine degree in 1944 and his M.D. degree in 1946 from the University of Illinois School of Medicine while serving as a volunteer in the United States Navy V12 Program during World War II.

MAC FAM LOSES DEAR FRIEND IN LINDA DUNCAN
The MacMurray Family and the Jacksonville community lost a dear friend, Linda Duncan, on Sept. 3. Duncan worked at the College for 12 years as an administrative assistant in the education department. Many students knew her as Ms. Linda, and she cared deeply about her Mac Fam and MacMurray College athletics, especially the volleyball program. Every summer, for the last seven years, Duncan hosted a cookout and pool party for the Mac volleyball team, showing her support and continuously rallying around the girls. She will be remembered by many students, alumni and faculty as a hardworking woman with a great sense of humor, and many will hold on to fond memories of her welcoming nature and her willingness to help students in any way she could.
