MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
President’s Message Dear Friend of Marian University, Thank you for your continued support of Marian University! I think you will find the mission inspired stories within the pages of this edition of the Marian Magazine compelling, and evidence of our commitment to offer excellence in education. My own story is that I am inspired by the Gospel to serve. Having served and retired as President and CEO of Agnesian HealthCare in Fond du Lac — another institution sponsored by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes — it has been easy for me to adopt as my own the Mission and Core Values of Marian and to embrace this ministry of education. In the coming year, I will focus on a few vital areas as directed by the Board of Trustees. Working collaboratively with the staff and faculty, we will work to move forward in the following areas: student experience, strategic plan implementation, paying careful attention to our finances, preparation for our accreditation reaffirmation visit in 2015–16 and building relationships across the university community. The Trustees will also be engaged in a national search for the new president of Marian University through a process which will include broad participation of the university constituencies. Our mission is to educate; simple to say, but tough to do without your commitment. For that commitment, we are grateful. Enjoy your copy of the Marian University Magazine. Sincerely,
Marian University Magazine chronicles this university’s commitment to community, learning, service, social justice and spiritual traditions across the generations.

Transitioning to campus
Orientation Weekend helps introduce students to Marian community The fall season marks a time of new beginnings, new experiences and the transition into colorful autumn days before the cold winter sets in. At Marian University, the beginning of the academic year is filled with excitement and new transitions, especially for this year’s Class of 2017 during orientation weekend held August 23–26. “From the first moment on campus, new students are welcomed into the Marian family and engage in the Mission and Core Values — it’s what makes the Marian experience unique,” said Jennifer Krueger, director of the First-Year Studies program. “The transition to an independent college lifestyle for some students is difficult, yet orientation weekend is centered on making students feel at home and part of the community.”
Learning the Campus Although coming to campus for an academic purpose, orientation weekend seeks to inspire students to learn about Marian’s academic resources, student engagement opportunities and its valuesbased community.
a deeper connection to the community,” said Krueger. “Through this immersion experience, students recognize a greater purpose and are able to invest their talents into the future.” Through service, students bridge the gap between Marian University and the opportunities that await them in the greater Fond du Lac community, especially as they look ahead to success in their first year of college life.
First-Year Success With the orientation weekend behind them, students begin to engage in the Marian community through the Mission and Core Values. “The First-Year Experience plants the seed for the future leaders of Marian and our world,” said Krueger. “They may not know it on the first day, but Marian students continue to live the Mission and leave a legacy of success in their wake.”
“Marian’s Core Value of Community is a significant part of orientation weekend. Student leaders emulate the mission of the university and engage first-year students in making a smooth transition through community-building activities,” said Krueger. “Orientation sets the stage for making lifelong connections.” For the four days of orientation, students are assigned a student mentor who leads them throughout orientation, and accompanies them throughout their first year at Marian. The First-Year Studies Program, with support from the Residence Life staff, works to make the campus come alive for first-year students, whether through finding classrooms or assisting with a question about classes, financial aid, housing contracts or Marian’s dining options.
Service to the Community Apart from team building activities, students engage in a service project within the local community and serve several organizations and agencies in Fond du Lac. “Students are able to live the mission, as they make 5

Inspired by Conservation The phrase “Going Green” is one that resonates with individuals from around the world, as we hope to make our time here on earth as good and beneficial as we can. Marian University has implemented several environmental initiatives to reduce its impact on the natural world, including the newly installed hydration centers around campus. The Sustainability Committee has been working to reduce Marian’s carbon footprint, and promote green, sustainable efforts in all facets of campus life. In an effort to conserve, the hydration centers around campus aid in this goal of reducing the plastic waste of water bottles, while increasing access to quality filtered water. “Marian has taken the initiative to do what we can to be more sustainable,” said Kate Candee, vice president for mission and student engagement. “The new hydration centers are retrofitted to the previous water fountains and even count the number of plastic water bottles that

have been saved. These efforts are truly aligned with our Mission and Core Values, as well as with Catholic Social Teachings.” Currently, Marian has four hydration centers located in the Administration Building, Sadoff Science Building and Cardinal Meyer Library. “Our work has saved more than 25,000 bottles and counting since their installation last fall,” said Candee. “We hope to install more hydration centers in the near future, so as to continue to meet our goals of becoming a sustainable community.” In addition to the new hydration centers, Marian has implemented a variety of sustainable actions, including new recycling bins, energy-saving lighting options, battery recycling programs and campus beautification projects.

The Sustainability Committee is continuing to incorporate new efforts to make Marian more conservative and sustainable, and to educate the community in how each of us can do our part to take care of our world. “The Marian community strongly supports these efforts,” said Candee. “We are inspired to conserve and make a difference for generations to come.”

In addition, Marian’s athletic program has prospered through quality student–athletes and coaching staff, the addition of state-of-the-art facilities, and pride for the community.” For Korb, the future of Marian will be guided by its Mission and Core Values, which can directly be seen in the work of trustees, faculty, students, staff and alumni. “The future of Marian is in its people. Marian is a great organization that keeps moving forward in offering a quality, all-around educational experience, creating alumni who can apply their experience to quality positions around the world,” said Korb. “Marian will continue to remain a valuable institution within the Fond du Lac area that inspires students to reach their potential and make a difference in our world.” 7

Inspired to comfort, donating to heal Nursing student donates kidney to near stranger
We are all connected. Our lives intersect with others for a specific reason or purpose, despite the immensity of the world and the numerous possibilities within it. For one Marian nursing student, her personal mission to comfort and heal others went beyond her nursing duties and resulted in an organ donation. For Amy Fay ’14, donating her kidney to someone wasn’t about her passion as a future nurse or even receiving external fulfillment, but was something she felt she could physically do to comfort someone and give the gift of a second chance at life. “I have two perfectly healthy kidneys, when I only need one,” said Fay. “Why shouldn’t someone have one of mine?” Though Fay’s willingness may be of an uncommon mindset, helping others who have health issues is what led Fay to consider the nursing profession. Fay’s passion for nursing came when her mother was diagnosed with cancer, and Fay felt called to be the person who comforts and heals others. This passion for service to others found Fay when her aunt was in need of a donor. “The first time I had offered to donate my kidney was when my aunt was experiencing kidney issues,” said Fay. “Unfortunately, I was too young to donate, even though I was a match. I knew from that moment on that I was here on this earth to help others. That’s why I chose to be a nurse and achieve my goals at Marian.” 8
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
criteria and was considered a rare match. The overall evaluation was a success and Fay was approved as a kidney donor.
Fay enrolled at Marian and was accepted as a member of the Working Families Grant program for single parents, where she was eager to achieve her goal, support her family and be a role model to her three children. After a violent home experience in 2012, Fay’s world was turned upside down. With her family out of state, Fay turned to others to help — and ended up being welcomed into the home of Suzie Fishbaugher, of Beaver Dam. “When Amy came to live with me, I was in pretty poor health, and it was nice to have her help and support — we grew to be like mother and daughter,” said Fishbaugher. “I was going through double bypass heart surgery, when I found out I needed a kidney transplant.” Fishbaugher’s family was tested as potential donors, but they did not qualify as potential kidney donors. “I knew I wanted to help,” said Fay. “Suzie had taken me into her home, supported me and never asked for anything in return.” Following medical tests, Fay matched three of the
“I kept asking, ‘How did this wonderful woman — a stranger to me only months ago — happen to be a match?’” said Fishbaugher. “Amy has shared her life with me, and a small part of her will always be with me too.” Following months of kidney dialysis, Fishbaugher will be receiving the kidney she needs this fall. Both Fishbaugher and Fay are looking for a quick recovery and the ability to continue living in service to others.
Former professor celebrates 70th anniversary as Capuchin brother Father Ron Jansch, a former professor and chaplain of Marian, is celebrating his 70th anniversary Diamond Jubilarian as a Capuchin brother. With a passion for education, Father Jansch began his teaching ministry in 1953, serving at St. Lawrence Seminary and Marian University. For more than 40 years, Father Jansch was a professor of ethics, natural theology, Christology and history at Marian, while also serving as the chaplain from 1968–1984. Father Jansch is currently retired and resides at St. Lawrence friary, where he continues his work on historical Capuchin projects.

Soldier surprises son during Pinning Ceremony In addition to pinning the more than 100 student nurses and sending them off to inspire the community, the May 2013 School of Nursing pinning ceremony was treated to a special surprise. Captain Roy Surita of the United States Army and father to Marian nursing graduate Andrew Surita ‘13, of Steilacoom, Wash., made a surprise appearance for his son’s graduation weekend. Originally unable to attend, Captain Surita received permission to take a furlough leave and was able to make arrangements to attend his son’s graduation and present him with his School of Nursing pin. The School of Nursing faculty and staff and Hillary Arnoldussen ‘13, Andrew Surita’s fiancé of Fond du Lac, were able to coordinate the evening and assist Captain Surita in surprising his son during the pinning ceremony. Captain Surita has been deployed to the Middle East three times in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq in 2006–2007, and twice to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan in 2008–2009 and in 2012–2013. Captain Surita is a soon-to-be recipient of his third Bronze Star for exemplary actions supporting the global war on terrorism during combat operations.

A Mission-Inspired Community Marian University alumni reflect on the impact of the Mission and Core Values
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
ach moment matters. Every hour, minute and second is an opportunity to live, to serve, to succeed and to inspire positive change in our own lives and in the lives of others. It is our purpose — and mission —to make a difference in our world through each of these moments. To some, a mission is just another statement or saying. To others, it’s a personal reflection of one’s values, a call to action and a guiding light for the future.
“The development of our core values really changed the landscape and future of the university,” said Schmidt. “They are our belief system. The foundation of Marian and CSA is focused on our spiritual heritage and our calling in life. These values all are interwoven together — you cannot have one without the other. We all need them, not just here at Marian, but as we go out into the world and live out our calling.”
For Marian University, the Mission and Core Values go hand in hand with the impact and value of the Marian experience, especially since inspiring more than 14,000 alumni to make a difference in their own lives and leave a mission-inspired legacy in their path.
A Quality Learning Environment
Spiritual Traditions at the Heart With strong convictions and passion for service, the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes set out more than 75 years ago to create and develop a quality educational environment at Marian University. For Sister Judith Schmidt, CSA ’63, Marian and its mission have always had a spot in her heart. Schmidt’s 22 years of service to Marian were filled with passion, and she continues to be a supporter of the university’s purpose in the community. “After graduating from Marian with my education degree, I took 13

“The Mission and Core Values are what drive us to success. Marian will continue to grow, as will the community’s passion for living our Mission and Core Values.” — Sr. Judith Schmidt ‘63
all that I learned and applied it to my teaching and leadership within the schools I worked in and through CSA,” said Schmidt. “From my role with Marian’s adult and continuing education department to serving in mission development, the Marian community is one that I treasure deeply.” Throughout her time at Marian, Schmidt felt called to serve in as many areas as she could, and was an integral part in the development of the Mission and Core Values.
As an academic learning environment, the focus and value of learning is central to the success of the university, illustrated by how Marian’s academic support and attention to a personal, applied experience inspired James Goodfellow ‘09, to achieve more. “I knew Marian’s learning environment was what I needed,” said Goodfellow, a native of Naperville, Ill. “After graduating high school, I wanted to continue my education while still feeling the camaraderie with an athletic team. Marian allowed me to do both.” For Goodfellow, learning did not always come as easy as making a goal or a home run, but because of his hard work, determination and support from Marian’s faculty and staff, his dreams became a reality. “Marian’s faculty want students to succeed, and through the EXCEL
program, I was able to do it. As a two sport athlete in hockey and baseball, I appreciated all of the support and resources that Marian provided for me,” said Goodfellow. Goodfellow continues to live the value of learning, both through professional development opportunities in his role as a Client Services Consultant with Hibu, as well as through his service to Marian as an assistant baseball coach. “Students — and student– athletes — at Marian have the opportunity to make an impact after graduation,” said Goodfellow. “Living the Marian experience, I enjoy mentoring student–athletes and sharing the ‘student first, athlete second’ mentality, and how lifelong learning helps you succeed in the future.”
“Learning is at the center of the University, and can be seen through its Mission and Core Values.” — James Goodfellow ‘09
Service to Others Although the campus landscape and scenery has changed over the years, Marian’s focus on service has not, especially as Lindee (Graff) Kimball ‘83 continues to serve the community. “Growing up in the Fond du Lac area, I always knew of Marian’s reputation for success,” said Kimball. “As a psychology major and now as a licensed social worker, I know my Marian experience played a significant role in who I am today.” For Kimball, attending Marian was an easy decision, as she wanted to attend a university that centered on a service and faith-based experience. 14
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
“My experience at Marian wasn’t just about learning, but was how I could use what I learned to help others,” said Kimball. “Many of my professors were part of CSA. They instilled in us these values — even though they weren’t even written when I was a student. My experience allowed me to develop the mentality that we do not get anything by ourselves, but we need to work together to make a difference in our world and shine a positive light on the future.” Kimball currently serves as the Executive Director of the Solutions Center, and strives to provide safety, support and hope to individuals affected by domestic abuse and homelessness. In addition, Kimball is a member of Marian’s Alumni Association Board, and serves as a member in several other local organizations. “Service is a part of me,” said Kimball. “Marian’s focus on service and hands-on experiences allowed me to do more through working with others to make a positive difference for the future of our community.”
“Marian’s focus on service and hands-on experiences allowed me to do more through working with others to make a positive difference for the future of our community.” — Lindee Kimball ‘83
A Focus on Social Justice With a Mission centered on welcoming individuals from varied experiences, Marian’s focus on social justice continues to transform individuals to help others and embrace integrity in our world, much like Doug Edelstein ’06, who serves Winnebago County as the Assistant District Attorney.
Inspired to spread our Mission, the Marian University community recently reviewed the Mission Statement to reflect Marian’s goals for the future. In doing so, Marian’s Mission Statement maintains our legacy of success, and opens doors for an inspired future.
Marian University is a Catholic applied liberal arts community that welcomes diverse spiritual traditions. Sponsored by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, Marian University engages students in the education of the whole person. We embrace justice and compassion and transform lives for professional service and leadership in the global community.
“It’s not hard to live the Mission at Marian — both in the classroom and in organizations. Through both of these facets, your character and values are illuminated...” — Doug Edelstein ‘06
“Marian is accepting of all types of people, and I learned that from an early point in my college search,” said Edelstein. “Social Justice has always been at the core of my upbringing. It’s not our place to discriminate or make poor choices that affect others and our world — we’re here to be of service and to move toward a common goal.” Edelstein’s dedication to justice began at Marian, where professors assisted him in gaining the foundational skills in order to reach his goal of becoming a lawyer. “It’s not hard to live the mission at Marian — both in the classroom and in organizations,” said Edelstein. “Through both of these facets, your character and values are illuminated, and Marian’s professors want to support your goals and what you want to do in life.” 15
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
The five core values of Marian University inspire everything we do at Marian University — in the classroom, in activities, in service to others and in our relationships with each other.
Respecting our diversity as individuals, we encourage, challenge and nurture one another, joining together to accomplish our shared mission and vision.
We engage in a collaborative lifelong process of seeking truth and appropriating knowledge and values to transform the individual, our communities and the world.
Through active service and ministry, we support one another and seek to meet the needs of the larger community.
We work to create individual and societal change which supports the value, dignity and opportunity of every person.
Valuing Marian’s Catholic religious heritage, we respect each individual’s freedom to explore a diversity of spiritual beliefs. FALL 2013
For Edelstein, Marian’s Mission and the Core Value of Social Justice are carried with him through his role as an assistant district attorney, as well as an adjunct professor in Marian’s School of Business and Public Safety. “It’s all about doing what’s right under the circumstances,” said Edelstein. “During my more than four years of practicing law, I have strived to represent the values and beliefs of society. It’s my job to go beyond and make a bigger difference, while setting an example for the future.”
“Community at Marian is about all the elements of your experience — the classroom, the residence halls and the social and athletic activities. It’s about your whole experience,” said Lampereur. “As an educator, I believe this sense of community is necessary for a positive learning experience, and I strive to do my part to welcome others, join together and lead our community into the future.” With more than nine years of serving as an educator, Lampereur currently serves her own local community through several organizations.
Whether in the court room or back on Marian’s campus, Edelstein continues to appreciate these values and takes responsibility in serving to better our world. Inspiring Community Continually inspiring students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Marian, the Mission and Core Values serve as the fabric that holds together the Marian University experience. For Caroline (Coughlin) Lampereur ’93, the strand of community is a key component of success at Marian University.
“Marian is truly about the people. Whether in the 1990s, or when I visit the campus today, it’s the people — faculty, staff, students and alumni — who make the experience and the community so vibrant with possibility.” — Caroline Lampereur ‘93
“Marian is truly about the people,” said Lampereur. “Whether in the 1990s, or when I visit the campus today, it’s the people who make the experience and the community so vibrant with possibility. Each individual is his or her own color and is a part of the fabric that is Marian.” Inspired to get involved, Lampereur served as a Resident Assistant in Regina Hall and as a member of one of the first cross-country teams, all while earning a degree in education. 16
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
“Each individual within the community can be thought of as a strand of color that is woven together to make a beautiful tapestry — each one playing a significant role in its future,” said Lampereur. “With the fabric of the Mission and five Core Values, the Marian experience can be seen as a vibrant tapestry of success that will remain solid and strong for many years to come.”
Living our Mission-Inspired Legacy Marian University, like many forward-thinking organizations, places its Mission and Core Values as the vision for the future. As a community of learners, Marian students, faculty, staff and alumni have been given an incredible opportunity to take the lessons learned from the Marian University experience and share them with the world, allowing the mission to be shared and to inspire positive change. n
Alumni Spotlight: Eric Sanchez ‘04 specific values in its students — including coming together as a community in order to serve others.”
As we go through life, we think back on those memories and moments that brought us the most happiness. For some, they may be plentiful, with many days basking in the sunshine of happiness, love and positivity, both in their own lives and in the community. For others, those moments may be few and far between — but what if one individual could help change that? For Eric Sanchez, ’04, those negative thoughts and portrayals of negative lifestyles only empowered him to make a change and embrace a “Love All, Smile More, Be Human” philosophy through his new business, Positive Bob. “The idea for Positive Bob started one evening when I became frustrated with the news,” said Sanchez, who now lives in Milwaukee, Wis. “Story after story was focused on only the negative, and yet there are so many people and organizations doing great things in this world. I asked myself, ‘where is the positivity and happiness?’ From there, Positive Bob came to fruition.” Joining this positive mentality and Sanchez’s talent for silk screening, Sanchez opened his Positive Bob business in January 2012. Through selling Positive Bob t-shirts and gear, he hoped to start a movement of positive change and send a more powerful message of optimism and hope. “I have been silk screening tshirts since my junior year of high school, and I felt this was a great 17

It’s a message that speaks to who we are and what we believe.” Sanchez, who was an active member of Marian’s campus through athletics, credits his Marian University experience with his ability to build this business venture and further a personal mission. “Marian’s professors really had an impact on me. They helped me see who I could be and what I am capable of,” said Sanchez. “But it’s also about how Marian instills
“Marian taught me that I can use my interests and talents to do what I love — helping others,” said Sanchez. “Marian’s Mission translates into my own personal call to action, and has allowed me to create such a successful business.” Since its establishment, Positive Bob’s versatile message has taken off, with individuals and organizations sharing the Positive Bob philosophy through fundraisers, mission trips and everyday lifestyle changes both in the United States and around the world. Furthering the message, Sanchez hopes to incorporate inspirational seminars and motivational speaking into his business. “Education and engagement is just another way that I personally want to share the Positive Bob message and Marian prepared me to do that,” said Sanchez.

MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
ur educational journey does not end after high school, or even at the collegiate level; rather, it is a lifelong process that takes different forms and goes beyond our foundational years. For Dr. Darin Fahrney, ‘04/‘13, his educational journey inspired him to utilize his Marian experience and transform the lives of students at the Singapore American School.

Curiosity for learning Fahrney’s own yearning for knowledge and his love of learning led him to continue his educational goals even further, through pursuing his leadership skills in Marian University’s Ph.D. program.
“The doctoral program at Marian had the With a passion for At Marian, the Mission is the foundation same impact on me helping others, the as when I attended for teaching profession of the community, and speaks to the my masters — I felt at has always been purpose of being an effective educator, home,” said Fahrney.

with me with each experience and take the Core Values into consideration in my leadership style.” Fahrney’s education and life journey expanded with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to serve as a deputy principal at the Singapore American School located in Singapore, a Southeast Asian island city-state. After hearing of an overseas principal opportunity through networking with a fellow Marian alumnus, Fahrney and his family took on this new exciting adventure at the Singapore American School. A K–12 international school, the Singapore American School serves more than 4,000 students and offers a quality educational experience for children of missionaries, business families, U.S. military personnel and members of the U.S. government and U.S. embassy. “The school is really a melting pot of students, with more than 50 nationalities represented,” said Fahrney. “The school has been around since the 1950s, and continues the legacy of success for its students, especially for students with special learning needs.” Through his experience in the Singapore American School, Fahrney completed his doctoral dissertation on the “Voice of Struggling Adolescent Readers in a Secondary School Response to Intervention (RtI) Based Reading Program.” Fahrney’s research and educational experience at Marian University supported his passion for development and leadership in the Singapore American School.
MARIAN UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
Developing a Global Perspective The Singapore American School offers additional resources and support for students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in order to help all students receive a quality educational experience and reach their fullest potential. “My Marian education helped me support students and teachers in the school in how to make accommodations and incorporate differentiated learning strategies in the classroom,” said Fahrney. “This is definitely a unique quality of the school, and I’m even part of the startup group, Next Frontiers Inclusion, where we are working to support the inclusion of all students in the learning environment.” “Educators certainly have a rewarding role, but being able to change students’ lives in a foreign country and help bring these resources to them, it’s really meaningful work,” added Fahrney. “It really speaks of Marian’s mission of educating the whole person and transforming one’s professional and global perspectives.” In addition to quality academic resources and support, Fahrney has assisted in furthering the school with its 21st century learning initiatives, both through incorporating technology and hands-on learning experiences. “We are working on making our school cutting edge, and driving it toward the future of the educational system,” said Fahrney. “Culture certainly takes on a new meaning here, as our quality educators are
incorporating travel and service-oriented trips in order to reinvent our school. Through combining our traditional methods of success with travel and hands on experiences, the Singapore American School has transformed. Our mission is to offer a quality American education with an emphasis on global perspective — and we are doing it.” Knowing the importance of a hands-on learning experience, Fahrney has led and continues to organize immersion trips to several countries during school breaks, including trips to the Himalayas, India, Burma and even a special meeting with the Dalai Lama in Tibet.
Living the Mission As an educator, Fahrney strives to make the most of each day, using his talents and skills to better the lives of students at the Singapore American School. “It is my hard work, motivation and inspirational Marian experience that has brought me such success here in Singapore,” said Fahrney. “This opportunity is certainly a reflection of my call to live out my personal values and the Mission of Marian and to do all that I can to be the quality educator and person that I have grown to be.” n

“After travelling abroad in high school, I knew I wanted to look into studying abroad while at Marian,” said Qualmann. “As a graphic arts major, Australia has much to offer for art, culture and technology.” Although travelling to an English-speaking country, Qualmann and Sroka will still have to transition to Bond University’s campus life and coursework. They will have an opportunity to experience the vibrant culture of Robina, and the authentic fares of Australia, while also having fun on weekend excursions and field trips throughout the country. Qualmann will stay connected to the Marian University community through his blog, “Miles Away,” available at: www.marianuniversity.edu/blogs/milesaway.

Student featured during internship with Lakeshore Chinooks Austin Massey ’15 of Hustisford was featured in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for his summer internship with the Lakeshore Chinooks. Truly a hands-on, real world internship experience, Massey had an opportunity to experience every aspect of the Lakeshore Chinooks and Kapco Park. Although he had several roles, Massey’s priority was to serve as the official scorer, where he charted every hit, run and error while watching the game from the press box. “I would love to work in the front office of a Major League Baseball team,” said Massey, as stated in the Journal Sentinel article. Massey is double majoring in sport and recreation management and finance, and is a member of the Marian Sabre’s baseball team.
Organizations partner to improve facilities by Luke Pattarozzi, Director of Athletic Communications It has already been a successful start to the 2013–14 year as Marian Athletics continues to expand its number of corporate partners. In 2012–13, Sabre athletics secured numerous sponsorships, including Holiday Automotive, Pepsi, Domino’s, Gustman Automotive, Backyard Grill and Whispering Springs. Moving forward, the department was able to renew sponsorships with all the above listed partners while adding some additional community businesses. Lenz Truck, Holiday CDJ, Coliseum Sports Bar and Grill and Printing Express among others have all agreed to sponsorships in 2013–14. While all of the Sabre Athletic partners have helped the department grow, one recent agreement allowed for the purchase of two new scoreboards for Smith Fields. Korneli’s Wisconsin, Express Convenience Centers and ServiceMaster of Fond du Lac partnered with Sabre Athletics to purchase and install two brand new scoreboards that will improve the fan and student–athlete experience during game days. Additionally, the businesses will offer different

promotions throughout the entire academic year to students, faculty and staff of Marian University. “The agreement with Korneli’s, Express Convenience Centers and ServiceMaster was a unique and extremely important partnership with Sabre Athletics,” said Rich Eckert, assistant athletic director of external relations. “This partnership allowed us to improve Smith Fields with the purchase of the scoreboards, while expanding our outreach within the community. I’m extremely thankful for the support the Fond du Lac business community has granted us over the last year and am excited to continue to build on the success.” Sabre Athletics is still currently seeking new partners for the 2013–14 academic year. No business is too small or large and we hope you will consider helping us inspire hundreds of young adults academically, athletically and professionally this year. If interested in a Sabre Sponsorship, please contact Rich Eckert by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (920) 923-8639.
