Stevens Family: Generations of Success
or three generations, members of the Stevens family have enjoyed success at Saint Vincent College. Saint Vincent has been a way of life, starting with John Stevens, Sr., C’37. “We lived in Altoona and my grandfather was a benefactor of Saint Francis College, but my father went against the grain and chose to attend Saint Vincent, then a bitter rival to Saint Francis,” said John Stevens. Years later, when it came time for John to make his own college selection, he visited Saint Vincent and liked what he saw. Stevens had two professors who were just starting their careers— Brother Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., who had graduated from Northwestern University and is now president of the College, and Dr. Michael Botsko, who had joined the faculty after graduating from Duquesne. Years later, John’s own children, Kimberly, C’07, and Michael, C’11, had Dr. Botsko for some of the same courses. “They told me how he brought a high level of energy—and chalk dust—into the classroom, the same things I experienced 40 years ago.” “When you completed the mathematics curriculum with such a high caliber of educators, you felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment,” he said. “When you sense that you have the respect of people like Brother Norman and Dr. Botsko it does a lot for your confidence and self-esteem.” After graduation, Stevens worked for the former Equibank in securities trading and investments where he also met his wife of 30 years, Leslie. He subsequently worked at Mellon Bank for six years and with the Bank of America for seven years. He has worked for the past 14 years with SunTrust Robinson Humphrey in Pittsburgh. Kimberly Stevens graduated in 2007 after having served in a host of campus clubs and organizations. She was recognized with the conferral of the President’s Award in 2007 for her outstanding service. She is a CPA and works as a senior financial analyst at Philips Respironics in Murrysville. Michael majored in math and captained the cross country team to its first-ever NCAA conference championship. John Stevens chairs a special project to gather support from other mathematics alumni to fund a classroom in the new Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion that will honor the career service of Dr. Botsko. The classroom is part of the $39 million construction and renovation of the former Science Center. For him, he says, the project is “a no brainer.” —Don Orlando

A Message From The President
ust Just as the seasons change in the natural world, time at an academic institution follows a natural progression. During the summer when students are taking advantage of summer courses, internship, travel, service or job opportunities, faculty and staff draw a collective breath, take advantage of special opportunities and finalize plans for the coming academic year. So it was at Saint Vincent this summer. In addition to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ traditional training camp, we had the opportunity to celebrate our longtime relationship with the Steelers and the Rooney family as we presented “The Chief, “ a one-man play celebrating the life of Steelers founder Art Rooney Sr., accompanied by “An Exhibition of Art” featuring Steelers artwork. At a gala opening the run, Art Rooney Jr. sat at his father’s desk and reminisced as sportscaster Bob Pompeani asked questions. During the interview, Pompeani asked Art whether he agreed with some of the speculation that the drafting of defensive lineman Joe Greene was the most significant acquisition in turning the team around from winning to losing. Art’s response was, “What do you expect me to say? He’s sitting right out there,” so Pompeani turned to Joe and said, “My understanding is this is the first time you’ve seen the play, The Chief. Can you share with us your reactions to the play?” Mean Joe was visibly emotional, touched his heart and seemed to tear up. Immediately the audience broke out in applause. Also drawing visitors to campus was the biennial Fred Forward conference, carrying on the life work of “Mister Rogers” and offering new professionals in children’s media the opportunity to network with established experts and help to set the agenda in the field of early learning. High school students visited campus for the Faith and Reason summer program, which introduces bright and capable students to the rich intellectual tradition of the Catholic faith, allowing them to address some of the most fundamental questions facing humanity from a Catholic perspective. As summer drew to a close, we were delighted to welcome three of the first nine students to attend the Faith and Reason program as freshmen this fall. Our new students began to forge bonds with the local community through the fifth annual Service to Community Day, during which they rolled up their sleeves to help 37 local nonprofits and community organizations complete important projects. As we participate in the excitement of this election year, we are most proud of the contributions our alumni are making in government service; a selection of SVC movers and shakers is featured in this edition. We will bring a pair of nationally known politicians to campus on Oct. 25, when Fred Thompson, former U.S. senator from Tennessee and Republican presidential contender, will debate Howard Dean, former governor of Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate. Please know you are welcome to join us for this 8 p.m. presentation in the New Horizons Speakers Series at the Robert S. Carey Student Center. Also in October, we will kick off a yearlong celebration of the Year of Faith, declared by Pope Benedict XVI to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. We invite you to join in one or more of the many events being planned. Finally, let me offer thanks to our donors who support Saint Vincent College and provide us with opportunities to expand our academic offerings, help students with scholarships and so much more. Your faithfulness and generosity are appreciated!

A Day Of Service
Hundreds of Saint Vincent College students went to work at community service projects throughout Westmoreland County prior to the start of the school year, as the fifth annual Service to the Community Day was held. The day reinforces to incoming students how Saint Vincent integrates service projects into the experiences of every student. Dozens of area non-profit and community organizations greeted groups of students, who painted, cleaned, repaired, and landscaped, among other tasks. Service Learning Director Kelly King said this project engages Saint Vincent College students with the community. “This demonstrates our Benedictine mission by giving students an opportunity to serve the region in a very personal way,” she said. Some of the 37 organizations the project involved were the American Red Cross, Christ the Divine Teacher School, City of Latrobe, Faith in Action, Greensburg Central Catholic High School, Keystone State Park, Latrobe Parks and Recreation, Latrobe Regional Health and Rehabilitation, Laurel Highlands, Lifeway Pregnancy Center, McKenna Senior Center, Ligonier Bethlen Cottages, Pennsylvania CleanWays, Saint Vincent Gristmill, and the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve, among others. At the nature reserve, pictured on the cover, students worked in the garden and helped make “tree Cookies”, wooden building blocks that will become part of the nature exploration children’s areas. “The project is an opportunity for students to bond with each other as well as with other members of the Saint Vincent community including faculty, administration Saint Vincent Magazine
and staff members who participate,” King said. Through service projects, students find elements in the community that go beyond the classroom, some of which can help in career choices. In addition to first-year students, nearly 100 upperclassmen who serve on the Orientation Committee act as mentors to the incoming freshmen and volunteer alongside them. The Office of Service Learning and Community Outreach works with organizations in the area throughout the school year to plan service opportunities for students. 5

Magazine Features Saint Vincent Saint Vincent College was featured in the most recent edition of Kingdom Magazine, a magazine first available to friends and associates of Latrobe’s Arnold Palmer, and now available at private clubs and golfers around the globe. The three-page spread included a photo of the renovated 19th century barn used as an environmental education center on the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve, named after the golfing legend’s late wife. A promotional advertisement from the college (see article on college marketing later in this issue) followed the feature. A photo of the new Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is included in the spread, which also mentions the Fred Rogers Center and the Loe China Studies Center, as well as the college’s committment to service opportunities. Information on the 49 undergraduate programs is also provided. Arnold Palmer and his daughters helped fund development of the nature reserve after Winnie Palmer’s passing, as a tribute to her interest in and commitment to nature. “One of Winnie’s great concerns over the years is that kids spend too much time in front of the computer and not enough time outdoors,” Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., told the magazine. He got to know Winnie Palmer when she served on the Saint Vincent College Board of Directors. “Now we have this beautiful community resource.”

The People’s Business Draws Alumni TO Work IN Harrisburg, Washington, D.C. BY THERESA SCHWAB
ometimes the inspiration comes from a book about the historic exploits of presidents or a politician visits a classroom to talk to youngsters about the world of politics. Sometimes it is the example of parents stressing the need to give back to others, a desire to follow in the footsteps of a beloved parent, or college experiences and the faculty members who inspire students to seek internships in government service. For a variety of reasons, Saint Vincent College alumni and even a faculty member have found themselves drawn to work in Harrisburg and Washington, doing the “people’s business.” And though media polls may show a general disenchantment on the part of the public with politics, especially in this election season, the actual work of doing the government’s business still seems to attract bright, hard-working people who are inspired by the knowledge that doing public service is indeed special.
IGREGORY FAJT, C’77
For Gregory Fajt, C’77, the path to his current position as a commissioner on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in Harrisburg took him from his Greensburg home to enroll as an accounting student at Saint Vincent, following in the footsteps of two older brothers,
Gerry, C’69, and Dan, C’75, who also earned accounting degrees at Saint Vincent, which has a strong bond with the Fajt family. Earning that degree was a move designed to ensure future employability, Fajt said, though, he admitted, “I always had an interest in public service, even back to my days in junior high school when I started to realize that I wanted to run for elective office and do something in the public service field.” (A visit to his junior high class by state Sen. John Scales impressed him so that he remembers thinking, “That’s what I want to be someday.”) But dreams of public office were put on hold for a while when he became a CPA and he started working as an accountant. After three years, he concluded, “I didn’t want to do this the rest of my life, so I decided to follow in the footsteps of my older brother and go to law school, and later I got the political bug again.” After graduating from Duquesne University law Gregory Fajt, C’77, Commissioner, school, where his special Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board

interest was taxation, he was employed as an attorney for about 10 years, when he decided to seek public office. He ran for a position as a state representative in 1988—but lost. “It was a close race; I lost by only 1 1/2 percent, and the night I lost, I announced then that I’d run again, and in 1990, I won the race as a state representative.” For six years Fajt represented the 42nd district, which included his Mt. Lebanon home in Pittsburgh. While in the House he focused on tax policy and economic development issues and served on the Finance, Judiciary, Professional Licensure and Tourism committees. After that, he ran for a seat in the state Senate—and lost. Since he had given up his state House position, he was out of work, and so in 1997 he joined a Pittsburgh law firm, and over the next seven years he concentrated on the areas of estate planning and corporate law. But government service would call him back. When Gov. Ed Rendell was elected in 2002, Fajt was asked to become Secretary of Revenue. “It was the best job I’ve ever had. It combined my interest in accounting and law, and my love of politics, all in one job. I loved being Secretary of Revenue. And Gov. Rendell was great; he was the smartest, hardest-working boss I’ve ever worked for. To this day, we have a very good relationship. He was demanding, but he was a great, great guy, a very good boss. It was fun and challenging to work for him.” That good working relationship resulted in Fajt’s being
“The great thing about Saint Vincent was that it really nurtured me. It drove home the belief that you can do anything with your life. My mother and father had drilled that into their seven children; ‘you can be anything and do anything in life,’ but at Saint Vincent, I realized that was true.”—Gregory Fajt, C’77 named the governor’s Chief of Staff in February 2007. That position is the top advisor to the governor and manages the day-to-day activities of the executive branch of state government, including 18 cabinet agencies and the Governor’s Office. “That was like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire,” Fajt laughed. “As chief of staff, you deal with everything—environmental disasters... natural disasters...police shootings, school closings.. employee misbehavior...everything that goes on; I oversaw 80,000 employees in the Commonwealth, which has a $27-billion-dollar budget. My job was to be a gobetween for the governor and the legislature. As chief of staff, you were always on call. It was stressful, but at the same time, exhilarating. You are in the middle of everything that goes on in the state.” He served in that capacity for two years, and in 2009, he was named by Gov. Rendell to be chairman of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, which oversees and regulates the gaming industry. The gaming legislation, Saint Vincent Magazine
“I’ve enjoyed my career,” he said. “I wouldn’t do anything differently, and I would encourage young people to get into public office. I do public service because it’s something I love. I don’t go in with an agenda.”—Gregory Fajt, C’77 permitting casinos, was passed in 2004. “Since the first casino opened in October 2006, the gaming industry has paid to the Commonwealth $7 billion in taxes and fees. The majority of the money—little more than half—is going to property tax reduction. A lot of people don’t realize they are getting that property tax reduction, but, on average, each homeowner is getting $200 a year. The rest of the money goes to the horse racing industry for added purses and the revenues have also gone to an economic development fund for western Pennsylvania that helps pay down the bond on the Pittsburgh airport, makes a significant annual contribution to the arena in Pittsburgh and also gives money to local fire departments.” When Gov. Tom Corbett came into office, he named a new chairman, and the Senate Democrats named Fajt to his present position as a commissioner on the Board. “I’ve enjoyed my career,” he said. “I wouldn’t do anything differently, and I would encourage young people to get into public office. I do public service because it’s something I love. I don’t go in with an agenda. That may sound self-serving, but I really do it because I don’t trust anyone more than I trust me. I think public service is a great calling. My parents taught me at a young age to give back to society, and I’ve always taken that to heart. I know I could make more money in the private sector, but this is what I love.” “The great thing about Saint Vincent was that it really nurtured me. It drove home the belief that you can do anything with your life. My mother and father had drilled that into their seven children; ‘you can be anything and do anything in life,’ but at Saint Vincent, I realized that was true. I forged a lot of friendships at Saint Vincent, and a lot of my best friends are people from Saint Vincent whom I’ve stayed in close contact with. Saint Vincent is a great institution. I learned a lot from the priests and the lay faculty.” Especially meaningful to him, he points out, is that both sets of grandparents, his parents, numerous aunts and uncles—including his special mentor, teacher, and uncle Father Anthony Burlas, O.S.B.—are all buried at Saint Vincent. Giving back continues to be important to Fajt. He was named Big Brother of the Year for Allegheny County in 2002, and currently is on the board of directors for ACHIEVA and the Burgess McCormac Foundation. He also has served on the boards for the Pittsburgh Blind Association, Beginning with Books, and Saint Anne Home.
IMICHAEL WALSH, C’96 For another alumnus, Michael Walsh, C’96, his campus experiences and campaign work, which grew out of an early interest in history and politics, would lead him to a career in Harrisburg where he currently serves as Deputy Secretary for Administration at the Pennsylvania Department of Education. “My interest in public service and government goes all the way back to grade school. I was reading books about history and presidents back then,” he recalled. “I remember my dad traveling and bringing back a book on JFK, so I was reading about the civil rights movement of the 60s, social justice, and issues like that, and when I got to college, it was a foregone conclusion that I would be a political science major.” For Walsh, an important part of learning was not just in the classroom at Saint Vincent. “I think they (my teachers) had as profound an impact outside the classroom as inside the classroom because I remember talking about not just politics but current events with professors such as Chuck Manoli, Jim Meny, Susan Sommers, Bill Snyder, and Dennis McDaniel.” Walsh believed that being “engaged in the community” was an important way to learn about his chosen field. The Chester County native interned for Sen. Harris Wofford in Philadelphia, and was impressed by the veteran politician’s dedication to civil rights, having worked with Martin Luther King and helping to start the Peace Corps. “I have two professors especially to thank—Brother Norman (Hipps), O.S.B., and Dr. (Gabriel) Pellathy.” Walsh credited then-provosit Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., for giving him special opportunities to be involved in some
“There were two important messages that I took away from Saint Vincent, ‘welcome all as Christ,’ and ‘be in service to your neighbor at every opportunity.’”—Mike Walsh, C’96 major campus planning. At the start of Walsh’s sophomore year, he recalled being surprised to be summoned to the Provost’s office by Brother Norman who had been his freshman math teacher. To his delight, Walsh was asked to serve as a student member of the College Board of Directors’ Planning Committee. “I was thrilled, and I did that—serving from my sophomore through senior years— and I also worked on the Sesquicentennial Committee. I have to thank Brother Norman for giving me those opportunities outside of math class to be engaged in extra work. We were doing a lot of good things back then... building Rooney Hall, putting on an addition to the library. A lot of fun things were happening, and my experience, because of this, was better.” While searching for a speaker to talk to the Student Democrats, Walsh learned from Dr. Pellathy that thenstate Rep. Allen Kukovich would be willing to speak to

Michael Walsh, C’96, Deputy Secretary for Administration, Pennsylvania Department of Education the group. Walsh invited the legislator that year, and the following year invited him again. And then, during Walsh’s senior year, when Rep. Kukovich was running for state Senate, the young student got involved in working on that campaign and happily recalls the victorious primary night. “It was during my senior year, April 23—my 22nd birthday—Allen won the contest, and ultimately he gave me my first job after college.” That first job out of college for Walsh was serving as director of policy and communications for Sen. Kukovich. For the next six years, Walsh focused on regional economic development initiatives and smart growth projects in southwestern Pennsylvania. “We worked with a lot of communities in Westmoreland County and started the Smart Growth Partnership, which is still in existence today. We were helping communities plan for the future, talking about conserving open space and focusing on downtown areas.” At the time, he also earned a master of public management degree at Carnegie Mellon University. In February of 2003, Walsh joined the Rendell administration, serving as Executive Assistant to the Secretary of Administration, the late Robert Barnett. The Office of Administration oversees the IT and human resources functions for the 78,000 state employees. Later Walsh was named Special Assistant to the Governor, and he focused on the implementation of the
“When I speak to students, I tell them I think there is no higher calling in general than the service we can provide to each other. That doesn’t mean just public service, and not just professional but personal service. I see so much of that at Saint Vincent, not just with my fellow alumni, but the professors and the students who are engaged in service around the world.”—Mike Walsh, C’96 newly-passed gaming legislation, which would launch the first state agency in nearly 30 years. After working on the start-up plan, Walsh was appointed the first director of administration of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. “We were starting a new agency from scratch. There were no casinos or gaming facilities yet, no staff to license and regulate them. We had to start it all. I think I was the third employee, and eventually we got up to about 200 employees.” After that, he sought another new challenge when in February 2008 he joined the staff of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. As Deputy Secretary for Administration, he helps to manage the daily administrative operations of an agency of more than 500 staff members. “It allows me to be engaged in the work of public education, something I enjoy. I’ve enjoyed teaching classes myself at Saint Vincent and Penn State.” One interest has been energy efficiency in the classroom. “Just as Saint Vincent has sought to build LEED-certified energy efficient buildings with the Rogers Center and the Science Center, and the campus is promoting policies that are sustainable, we want to see that happen in schools all across the Commonwealth. More money can be put into the classroom when less money is spent on energy costs.” Since graduating, Walsh has returned to campus to talk to students. “When I speak to students, I tell them I think there is no higher calling in general than the service we can provide to each other. That doesn’t mean just public service, and not just professional but personal service. I see so much of that at Saint Vincent, not just with my fellow alumni, but the professors and the students who are engaged in service around the world. Service learning has to be a large part of what we teach in school because nothing provides greater satisfaction,” he said. “There were two important messages that I took away from Saint Vincent, ‘welcome all as Christ, and be in service to your neighbor at every opportunity.’” He demonstrates that by working on the Martin Luther King Day of Service, and serving as a board member for the Smart Growth Partnership of Westmoreland County, Historic Harrisburg, and Jump Street Inc., a non-profit educational alliance.
Saint Vincent Magazine
IJOSEPH PETRARCA, C’84 Having a father serve in the state House in Harrisburg was the inspiration for Rep. Joseph Petrarca, C’84, who has followed in his late father’s footsteps. The younger Petrarca has served in the state House since 1994. He had come from his Vandergrift home to Saint Vincent with an understandable interest in politics and the law. A class taught by Bruce Antkowiak in business law confirmed to the young student that he wanted to head to law school, and he recalled enjoying classes taught by Dr. Gabriel Pellathy as well. “Saint Vincent was a wonderful school,” Petrarca said. “It had a unique way of making everybody feel like they were part of the Saint Vincent family. It gave you a strong community feeling. It was a place that was very positive, and I think that’s why I’ve had such a positive attitude about government service. I look back at those days at Saint Vincent, and I think it made you feel that you were expected to do the right thing, that you wanted to succeed, and do the best that you could.” From an early age, campaigning was a family affair, and Petrarca helped with the campaigns of his namesake father, who would serve for 22 years as a state representative. “My dad was elected when I was about 10 years old. He was gone a lot; it was tough. He missed out

on a lot of family things, and I’ve probably done the same thing to my kids, but I did see the political life firsthand, and like my father, I believe it is rewarding to be able to help people.” After Saint Vincent, Petrarca earned a law degree at the University of Pittsburgh in 1987, and then moved to Washington and joined the staff as an attorney for the U.S. Department of Labor, then headed by Secretary of Labor Elizabeth Dole. Petrarca was employed there for three years, and happily met his wife, Elise, who was also an attorney, working in the same office. After that, he returned to Pennsylvania and served as a Deputy Attorney General in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General’s western regional office, covering 27 counties. “It was trial by fire,” he said of the work which involved defending state agencies and personnel. “It was a heavy caseload, and I spent a tremendous amount of time in court doing all phases of trial work.”
“Saint Vincent was a wonderful school. It had a unique way of making everybody feel like they were part of the Saint Vincent family. It gave you a strong community feeling. It was a place that was very positive, and I think that’s why I’ve had such a positive attitude about government service.”—Joseph Petrarca, C’84. But eventually, he decided he would run for the state House, and in 1994, he made a successful bid for office, defeating two other candidates in the primary before a fall election victory. A Democrat, he continues now in elective office serving as the representative for the 55th legislative district, which includes Westmoreland and Armstrong counties. He currently is the chairman of the House Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee, and he was also appointed to serve on the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Transportation Committee. He is particularly pleased, for personal reasons, with his gubernatorial appointment to the Organ Donation Advisory Board. His father had been the recipient of a kidney transplant, and following a transplant operation, was able to serve two more terms in Harrisburg. The senior Petrarca had worked hard on the state organ donation legislation. “When my dad in 1994 was giving his farewell speech to the Legislature when he was retiring, Greg Fajt—then a state representative—came in and interrupted the closing remarks to announce to the Legislature that the governor had just signed the organ donation act that my father had worked so hard for.” The new law set up a board—the Organ Donation Advisory Board—which was to be made up of different representatives, including recipient families. The younger Petrarca was asked to be a board member, and he has been twice reappointed to the board. “I knew what we had gone through with my dad’s organ transplant, but it
Saint Vincent Magazine
gave us a number of extra years with him, so I thought it was a fantastic thing to go onto the board as a member.” The senior Petrarca died in March 1995, three months after his son had been sworn in as a representative. One of the younger Petrarca’s legislative victories was the introduction of the check-off on vehicle registration that allows donations for the promotion of organ donation information and education. “That was my legislation, and it has raised millions of dollars,” Petrarca said. “I’m most proud of helping people on a daily basis. I know that meant a lot to my father. I don’t think there is any greater honor than being an elected representative, having people put their trust in you and representing them in all aspects of state government. My district offices easily get 1,000 calls a week from people having problems with state government. It is fulfilling to help them.” In 18 years in state government, he has witnessed change. “There is a lot more negativity in government; it didn’t use to be that way. The idea that the government, or people in the government, are not trying to help, or are not working hard or not trying to do the right thing for the right reasons—from my inside view, that is not the case; 99 percent of people in Harrisburg are working hard for the right reasons, to represent their districts.” When he is running for re-election, he switches to campaign mode, but is always actively involved in his district. He has been able to obtain some state grants for Saint Vincent and helped the College obtain state funds for the science center project. “I saw what my dad was able to do in our area. He helped a lot of people and helped our communities. My goal is to make state government work for the people of our area, to make sure government is helping folks and doing the right thing. I want to make sure we get our fair share of state dollars and try to make this a great area to live, work and raise a family.”
Another elected representative in Harrisburg with ties to Saint Vincent is faculty member Rep. Rick Saccone. He was elected in November 2010 to serve in the State House from the 39th District representing Washington and Allegheny counties. An assistant professor of politics at Saint Vincent, he is running this fall for re-election in what he said is a tough battle as a Republican in a heavily Democratic area. The first time he won election, he surprised everyone with his defeat of a long-time veteran Democratic politician, who chaired the finance committee. “I ran because I thought government was going in the wrong direction and I believed I had the skill set to make a difference...to make changes,” Saccone said. “It was a tough race because this is a district with 76 percent registered Democrats, blue collar Democrats, who haven’t elected a Republican in 50 years.” His strategy was to reach out to voters, one house at a time. His campaign involved knocking on 18,000 doors. “I broke a record, but I wouldn’t have won without

He served in Baghdad knocking on those doors,” he “When people say, ‘you are my hero, you’ve done and Mosul as a senior said, taking time to talk in his counterintelligence agent office before setting out on something for me,’ I’ve done my job.

IGARY STOFKO, C’00
A summer internship first took Gary Stofko, C’00, to Washington, D.C., and it was that first taste of the nation’s capital that has led him to work for the federal government for more than 10 years. He is now a Program Examiner with the National Security Division at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), an office within the Executive Office of the President that has the unique role of improving the efficiency, effectiveness, and fiscal responsibility of federal programs. That first internship was with the political action department at the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, one of the largest public employee unions in the country. “This was an organization representing working-class people, and it gave me a view of the political landscape that proved to be insightful and a successful first experience in Washington,” he said. Faculty member Rick Saccone, Pennsylvania House of Representatives, 39th Legislative District, at his swearing-in. Saint Vincent Magazine
Other internships would also help Stofko’s understanding of the political landscape, including one with the Washington County commissioners and budget office and another with William J. Green and Associates in Pittsburgh, a public relations firm. “Because my experiences were all over the map, so I felt that this gave me political equilibrium and allowed me to see all sides of an issue, which is absolutely essential when solving complex problems.” He decided, when arriving at Saint Vincent from his Monongahela-area home, that he would major in political science and shape campus policies right from the beginning. “I knew there would be unique opportunities at a small liberal arts school to be involved in a variety of Gary Stofko, ‘00, Program Examiner, organizations, and for me student government was first Federal Office of Management and Budget and foremost.

IEileen Flinn, C’90,
Returns To Saint Vincent By Theresa Schwab Eileen Flinn, C’90, remembers when she first started paying attention to politics. As a sophomore at Pittsburgh’s North Catholic High School there was a discussion in the school cafeteria at lunchtime about the 1984 national re-election bid of President Ronald Reagan, who was running against former Vice President Walter Mondale. “I was always interested in law, government, and political science, but that’s when I really remember first paying attention,” she recalled. Of course, this third-generation lawyer actually decided she wanted to go to law school at the advanced age of six! “My grandfather and uncle were both lawyers, and I was always interested in what they did. My grandfather was a corporate attorney, and my uncle specialized in mergers, acquisitions, and health care.” What she came to realize was that she wanted to learn how to think as a lawyer does, rather than pursue a career that would lead to fulltime work in a law firm. To pursue her goals, she majored in political science at Saint Vincent and minored in history. “I wanted to be able to analyze and be able to solve problems. That was more intriguing to me than going into a law firm. It was more interesting to study the history of law and understand how a court came up with a decision
Saint Vincent Magazine
and to be able to make sense of it all. So I wanted to go to law school, but not necessarily be a lawyer.” That interest in analytical reasoning has served her well following her graduation magna cum laude from both Saint Vincent and Duquesne University Law School. She has worked in state government in Harrisburg for both Republican and Democratic administrations for the past 14 years. Now she has come full circle and returns to Saint Vincent, where she is now assistant vice president for Institutional Advancement. Here, she will use her considerable skills to promote the College, build the endowment, raise funds, and increase alumni participation. Upon graduating from law school in 1998, Flinn began her career in government service as counsel to thenState Sen. Tim Murphy (now Congressman Murphy), and she also served as executive director for the Senate Aging and Youth Committee for the Senate Republican Caucus. In late 1999, she was recruited by Gov. Tom Ridge’s administration to work in the Governor’s Policy Office on criminal justice, transportation, infrastructure, and technology issues, and she served as the director for criminal justice and public safety. During the administration of Gov. Mark Schweiker, she was promoted to assistant general counsel in the Governor’s Office of General Counsel where she was responsible for all legislation and issues surrounding education, criminal justice, environmental protection, transportation, infrastructure, technology, liquor control, and gaming for the Governor’s Office and agencies under the Governor’s jurisdiction. She continued in this role when Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell took office before being named Director of Government Relations under Secretary of Education Vicki L. Phillips. When Phillips left Harrisburg to become Superintendent of the Portland, Oregon, School District, Flinn took a hiatus from state government and moved to Portland to be the Director of Government Relations and Policy for the school district there. She returned to Pennsylvania in 2009, and in February of that year, she was hired by the Senate Democratic Caucus and state Sen. Andrew E. Dinniman to be the Executive Director of the Senate Education Committee for the Democratic Caucus. She has enjoyed her work in Harrisburg, serving in the administrations of three very different governors. “As an attorney, my client is my client. It doesn’t matter what my personal politics are. I’ve worked for both parties, and I can present arguments from both sides. I can say, ‘this is how this is going to be attacked...this is how you can make an approach...here is what you can do to garner support from the other side.’” Her work was recognized in June by PoliticsPA, an influential website that reports on the political scene in the Commonwealth. She was tapped as one of Harrisburg’s “smartest staffers,” in a survey of Senate Democratic staff. The site said, “Flinn knows the education code and policy better than anyone,” noting that “she’s a professional, respected by all sides.”

alumni, parents, friends, corporations, businesses, and foundations. Serving since 2009 as executive director of the Saint Vincent Archabbey Apostolates and Endowments, he will also continue to coordinate the institutional advancement programs of the Archabbey and the Seminary including the Benedictine high school in Savannah, Georgia, Saint Vincent foundations in Taiwan and Brazil, and the international Benedictine university of Sant’ Anselmo in Rome. Father Paul previously served as vice president for institutional advancement, dean of admission and financial aid, and acting dean of students. “My current assignment at Saint Vincent involves mostly development work which I enjoy because of the

great people I have the opportunity to meet,” Taylor said. “The alumni and friends of Saint Vincent are good and generous people, many of whom remain very connected to Saint Vincent, and I try to keep those connections strong.” He is a graduate of Saint Vincent College, where he earned a bachelor of arts degree in mathematics with highest honor and Saint Vincent Seminary where he earned a master of divinity degree in theology with honor. “Saint Vincent College prepared me well with a great foundation to study for a master of arts degree in mathematics at Duke University and a Ph.D. in higher education administration from Boston College,” Taylor said. “Upon returning to the monastery, my work has included admissions, financial aid, student life, and development in the college, as well as work in a parish on weekends at Saint Louise de Marillac Parish in Upper Saint Clair, and working also at the Saint Vincent Gristmill. “I have had the pleasure to meet and to work with many of the people serving in public office. In November 2010, then-Governor-elect Tom Corbett asked me to serve on the Education Committee of his Transition Team,” Taylor said. “Since 1999, we’ve developed a partnership with Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, N.J., so for 13 years, I have been leading a group of Saint Vincent students to spend a week of service in January each year in this inner-city school operated by the Benedictine monks of Newark Abbey,” he said. “This is a great community. In 2010 I was inducted as an honorary alumnus of Saint Ben’s Prep.” A current member of the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation board of directors, Father Paul formerly served on the boards of directors of the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau, Benedictine Military School, Savannah, and the Saint Vincent College Corporation Board of Incorporators. Father Paul, 47, entered the Benedictine monastic community in 1987, and professed his solemn vows in 1991. He was ordained to the priesthood by the Most Rev. Anthony G. Bosco in 1992. A 1983 graduate of Elk County Catholic High School, Father Paul is the son of Irene S. Taylor of St. Marys, Elk County, and the late Robert Lawrence Taylor. He has two brothers, Larry and Bert, and seven nieces and nephews. Of his hometown, he said, “Saint Vincent has always had a strong partnership with St. Marys. Our foundings were only four years apart and we have similar histories. Many students have come to Saint Vincent from St. Marys over the years to receive a quality Benedictine education and have enjoyed success in their work, in their families and in the church, and I’m sure that tradition will continue in the years to come.”

New Recruitment Initiative Kicks Off By Liz Cousins A new recruitment effort will combine the efforts of the marketing, admission and alumni offices to attract students from various areas of the country. Mike Gerdich, C’98, director of alumni relations, explained that the effort will utilize the efforts of alumni in areas where the College would like to recruit. The alumni will be tasked with attending college fairs and making visits to high schools to pique high school students’ interest in Saint Vincent. “Eventually, we’d like the alumni to help us host prospective students at get acquainted days in these cities,” Gerdich said. “Ultimately, we’d like to work with the career center to open up internships and job opportunities with these graduates as well.” Suzanne English, vice president for marketing and communications, explained that the initiative is an attempt to draw on the people who know Saint Vincent best and who have great experiences to share with young people. The alumni and admission offices have “identified a number of cities to target with this initiative. For this recruiting season, we will be doing a pilot study in eight to 10 cities to work with alumni. We are also going to coordinate marketing efforts in three of these areas—Buffalo, Fort Lauderdale, and Baltimore/Washington—so that we can target ads to prospective students at the same time that alumni are going to be at college fairs and meeting prospective students and parents.” “Saint Vincent alumni are all over the map,” Gerdich added. “And our alumni are our best ambassadors. It makes sense to work with them to seek out students who would be a good match with Saint Vincent and to encourage those students to consider and ultimately select Saint Vincent.” Another facet of the alumni recruiting initiative is renewed emphasis on the alumni grant that is made available to students who know Saint Vincent alumni. The grant, which is good for $1,000 a year for all four years, is obtained by having the alumnus complete and submit a recommendation form for the prospective student. Ed McCormick, C’79 and president of the Alumni Council, has completed “dozens of forms over the last several years.” As a former high school teacher, McCormick had contact with students in the classroom or the guidance office at Hempfield Area High School near Greensburg, and would approach students “with the values and work ethic that would be a good fit with what Saint Vincent offers.” For more information about how to recommend a prospective student for the alumni grant, contact the alumni relations office at email@example.com or 724-805-2568.

He wasn’t just a boss but a mentor.” “The first thing I remember he told me was ‘Kill the people with kindness,’” Curry added. “It was a devotion of his to read the obituary page,” Curry said of Father Gilbert’s nightly reading. “He’d read the obituaries in the Latrobe Bulletin, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Tribune-Review. He said as a priest it was important to read the obituaries. We’d often be together, he reading the obituaries, and I watching TV or reading. And when he found a name he recognized, he would tell me something about the deceased person, including husband or wife, children. Oh, and their middle name!” “He told me to learn people’s names. He didn’t teach me the technique he used, but he always stressed the importance of remembering their full names.” Father Gilbert, Curry said, taught him the value of visiting people when they need it the most. “It spoke to his gentle kindheartedness that he was able to be with people when they needed a priest the most. That reinforces what I had learned in the Seminary.” “He received a lot of phone calls,” said Mary Ann Dunlap, C’12, who met Father Gilbert when he was named the College’s alumni director in 1997, and she was hired as his part-time assistant. “He would never let me put a caller on hold. No matter how long the previous phone call had been, or how emotional the previous phone call was, he was right there for everyone all the time.” “He treated everyone as he would have treated Christ,” Dunlap said. “He was so proud of his nieces and nephews. He had pictures of them hanging on his wall, and he was so proud of their accomplishments. He was also very close with his classmates, from the Prep School, Saint Vincent Magazine
the College, and the Seminary.” “Father attended or concelebrated or celebrated marriages and baptisms every weekend. ‘Mary Ann, it’s an honor to be included on the guest list, he said.’ He was always a priest first,” Dunlap said. “‘Death is part of life,’ he’d tell me when I was upset that someone had died. He was so humble, celebrating with them when people achieved their goals.” “He’d help stuff envelopes and do whatever we needed to get the job done. We were a team,” she said. “He always said he wasn’t a fundraiser, he was a ‘friendraiser. I’m here to raise friends for Saint Vincent.’” While Dunlap worked in the alumni office with Father Gilbert, he served as a kind of grandfather for her three daughters [Jamie, C’06, Sherrie, C’09, and Valerie, now in her second year at Washington and Jefferson College]. “He watched our girls grow up, came to first communions and graduations. He was very encouraging to them, to my husband, Jim, and to me. No matter what he was doing, when he was talking to you, you were the most important person in the world at that moment.” Father Gilbert and Wallace J. Mulligan, M.D., P’53, C’57, both entered Saint Vincent Prep in the fall of 1947, but they weren’t really friends then. “Gilbert was in the scholasticate, and I was in the prep,” Mulligan explained. “Our friendship developed after he was ordained and we went our separate ways. We were on parallel paths, but kept in touch. Then, years later he became our last tie to Saint Vincent. He was the only surviving member of the class that started at the scholasticate in 1947.” “Gilbert and I were in close contact over the last year,” Dr. Mulligan added, “as he and other friends bounced medical questions off me.” “We had a lot of affection and respect for him as a man of the cloth,” Mulligan said. “He was a vestige of a time and a place that is gone with the wind.”

Engineering Professor Helps Acquire Electron Microscope
Hitachi Variable Pressure Scanning Electron Microscope (VP SEM) has been acquired by the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing for student research in the instrument laboratory of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion. Hitachi High Technologies America, Inc. (HTA), whose Nanotechnology Systems Division (NSD) distributes VP SEMs, recently donated the sophisticated microscope to the College. “HTA has made quite a gift to Saint Vincent,” said Dr. Paul Follansbee, James F. Will Professor of Engineering Science at the Boyer School. Dr. Follansbee is an experienced VP SEM user
who will train students to utilize it for their senior research projects. The need for a microscope capable of viewing extremely small samples at a magnification of more than 100,000 times was identified by Follansbee during his teaching and research over the past four years. “We have a very impressive digital imaging laboratory which is state of the art,” he said. “It utilizes the commonly used optical microscopy. But this new instrument is capable of viewing objects at far beyond the 1,000 times magnification of an optical microscope.” Electron microscopes are capable of viewing viruses, biological samples, metals, electronic or polymeric materials, micro-particles,
nanomaterials, and other samples. This achievement by Saint Vincent was borne from an informal meeting with HTA at the annual Materials Science & Technology Conference in Columbus, Ohio, last fall. “While I was visiting the trade show displays, I wanted to see the Hitachi microscope which is considered the very best instrument available,” he said. “After that visit, Saint Vincent submitted a proposal to HTA. An HTA representative visited our campus and was quite impressed with our new Science Pavilion. As a result of our proposal, when the model S-3200N microscope became available, HTA was generous enough to donate one to Saint Vincent. We

are very fortunate to have acquired this new addition to our laboratory.” The microscope is Hitachi’s fourth generation VP SEM. It incorporates high-speed digital electronics and a column and chamber design to achieve the highest performance available. A mouse-controlled graphic user interface and many automated functions provide ease of operation and flexibility for both novice and experienced users. “We are pleased to have this opportunity to engage with Follansbee and his colleagues in their pursuit of elevating the programs at Saint Vincent College,” said Phil Bryson, general manager of NSD, “We live in an increasingly ‘nano’ world, and we believe access to Hitachi VP SEM technology will accelerate learning by Saint Vincent students.” “This instrument will be used primarily by our chemistry and biology students doing undergraduate research,” Follansbee said. “One student is already exploring the feasibility of doing a forensic study of oil paintings that will involve analyzing the chemical paint elements and how they have changed over the centuries.” “Experience in using this equipment will be very valuable to students who are planning to continue to graduate school or to go into research after they graduate,” Follansbee said. “They will be standouts.”
Details Of Final Construction Phase Revealed
onstruction continues on the final phase of the $39 million Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion which houses the classrooms, offices and laboratories for the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing. This construction involves the renovation of the former Physics Building on the west side of the Pavilion and provides classrooms, conference rooms, and faculty offices for the Departments of Computing and Information Science (CIS), Mathematics, and Physics. The ground floor will continue to house the College’s centralized network servers that support the delivery of Internet, email, and other services throughout campus. Two adjacent classrooms will be renovated, one to continue to serve as a classroom and the other as a computing lab. Two physics labs will be constructed on the first floor. The modern physics and optics labs will be used to teach the fundamentals of atomic physics, wave nature of systems, applications of optical principles, and radioactivity. The electronics lab will be used to teach circuit design, printed circuit board fabrication, and microcontroller programming. Two physics research labs will also be constructed and will be utilized for performing research in computational, experimental, and theoretical physics. Among ongoing projects are the study of electromagnetic properties of quantum systems, material testing, statistical models in thermodynamics, and spectral analyses of quasars. The physics space will also contain five laboratory support rooms and a cluster of five faculty offices. The pavilion already contains a general physics laboratory, physical science laboratory, and the Angelo J. Taiani Planetarium. The function of the planetarium is to study observational
astronomy, and to provide educational shows for the public. One computer classroom and two computer labs for the CIS department will be located on the second floor. The computer classroom will have more than 20 personal computers and two servers, along with various software available for courses in the Computing and Information Science curriculum including Windows 7 Professional®, Visual Studio®, Microsoft Office®, Python®, Prolog®, IIS® and Apache® web servers, the SQL Server database, the MySQL database, as well as software for learning animation and game development. One of the two computer labs will be equipped with 11 PCs and MacIntosh computers along with software for mobile application development and other types of software projects and research. The other computer lab is designed for IT and computer security research and projects. It will be equipped with five personal computers, a server hosting multiple virtual machines, three routers, and three managed switches. The second floor also contains a conference room, a tutoring room, and ten offices to serve the faculty in the Mathematics and Computing and Information Science departments. Dr. Stephen Jodis, dean of the Boyer School, said having all of the school’s departments together is an exciting development. “The 110,000-square-foot structure will enhance our sense of community and foster opportunities for interdisciplinary projects and interactions,” he added. The building incorporates sustainable design and achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification. A geothermal heating and cooling system provides environmentally comfortable and responsible energy efficiencies. The building will also employ many other energy-saving devices such as occupancy sensors that automatically turn lights on and off, water-conserving plumbing fixtures in the restrooms, and extensive use of glass for natural lighting. In conjunction with the building renovation, a researchgrade telescope observatory will be erected adjacent to the building. It will feature a brick structure to match the pavilion with a rotating dome. A 14-inch Celetron computer-controlled telescope with an imaging camera will be installed inside the dome. The observatory will have Internet and networking access. Architect for the project is MacLachlan Cornelius and Filoni, Inc. General contractor Jendoco expects to have all of the work completed by December. —Don Orlando

Dan Piccuta, C’77
Completes Foreign Service Career
hen Dan Piccuta, C’77, was a freshman at Saint Vincent College, Asian history professor Roy Mills got him hooked on China. Now, more than four decades later, Piccuta has retired from an impressive career as a U.S. State Department Foreign Policy Advisor. He worked alongside Henry Kissinger, Hillary Clinton, Tim Geithner, and a host of other top-level officials in his post as second in command at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China. “On the 30th anniversary of relations between the United States and China, we organized a celebration in Beijing,” Piccuta said on a recent visit to campus. “Henry Kissinger came as well as five former U.S. ambassadors, and I found myself standing among all of these notable figures. On another occasion, when Secretary of State Clinton had her first formal meetings with Chinese leaders, I found myself as Charge’ d’Affaires sitting between Secretary Clinton and Assistant Secretary of State for Asia, Chris Hill. Later, on assignment to the four-star Admiral in command of all U.S. military in Asia, I advised him on foreign policy and on engagements in Asian capitals and Washington.” This exciting high-level career in government service was only a dream when Piccuta returned to Saint Vincent in 1976 after a year studying and traveling in Taiwan and China, the first Saint Vincent student to study Chinese abroad. “Saint Vincent opened my eyes, my mind, my curiosity to Asia and to China,” Piccuta said. “Saint Vincent gave me the freedom to explore, allowing me to go to China and study Chinese.” “Imagine what it was like back in the 70s,” Piccuta said. “Few Americans knew much about modern China. The U.S. had virtually no trade with China. It wouldn’t be fair to say that I left Saint Vincent knowing exactly what I wanted to do. But I knew I was going to do something working between the U.S. and China.” The late Professor Mills was a longtime teacher of oriental history and was very popular with his students. He frequently spent hours playing cards amidst a cloud of cigarette smoke with students in the Shack snack bar. “I was drawn to Mr. Mills because he made the material so fascinating,” Piccuta said. “I was looking for something Saint Vincent Magazine
different. He made China accessible and fun. I remember one essay exam he gave with a single question: ‘A Confucian scholar, a Taoist scholar, and a Buddhist scholar are having a conversation. What are they saying?’” Piccuta said that it always meant a lot to him that the Benedictine monks were responsible for his education. “You can’t think about the Benedictines without thinking about carrying knowledge through the darkest period. The Benedictine tradition is not a 100- or 200-year-old tradition but an ancient approach that I felt a part of. As a Benedictine it must be instilled in you that you are a cell in an organism that has been living for a thousand years and that it is your responsibility to ensure that students respect learning.” One of Piccuta’s first assignments was in Beijing as staff assistant to U.S. Ambassador James R. Lilley. “He was George H. W. Bush’s first ambassador. I remember when Jimmy Carter came to speak to us and I happened to be standing next to him. Ambassador Lilley told someone to take my picture with the former President, and he said to me ‘stay in China and everybody will come to you.’ Later, in China I met then-First Lady Hillary Clinton, former President Nixon twice, Henry Kissinger of course, and Secretaries of State Warren Christopher and Condoleezza Rice. The list is endless. The high points came to me. I think I was very lucky.” In 1993, Piccuta was again assigned to Beijing to be in charge of embassy services to American citizens handling

emories abound when three-time Pro Football Hall of Fame nominee Art Rooney, Jr. C’57, returns to Saint Vincent. From training camp to his days as a college student here to tales of his father, Pittsburgh Steelers’ founder Art Rooney Sr., Rooney has stories. This summer many of those memories from Art, about Art, and including art, were shared at a special exhibition of sports memorabilia and through a special presentation of “The Chief,” the one-man show that tells the story of Rooney Sr. Rooney Jr., returned to Latrobe with his wife Kay (SHU’60) for the opening of the exhibit at Saint Vincent Gallery and the debut of “The Chief” at the Saint Vincent Summer Theatre on July 27.
Saint Vincent Magazine
Art Rooney Jr., a three-time nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, worked as a scout for the Pittsburgh Steelers, building the team for Coach Chuck Noll in the 1960s and the 1970s, the decade of four Super Bowl victories. First there was Joe Greene, who played from 1969 to 1981. The following decade the team drafted Terry Bradshaw and Mel Blount in 1970, Jack Ham in 1971, Franco Harris in 1972, and perhaps the most famous draft class of all, Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert, John Stallworth, and Mike Webster, all in 1974. There were many other players, many other draft classes—the nine aforementioned players being among those enshrined at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “I tell you one thing about Latrobe and that is it’s the birthplace of pro football. It’s in their blood. I went to Saint Vincent. People would say ‘where do you go to school?’ and I’d say, ‘I go to Saint Vincent.’ They would say ‘oh how nice, you’re going to be a priest.’ They didn’t know we had a college there. Now Saint Vincent has the identity as a real fine college. It’s their team and their town. My dad and his brother Dan and his son Art made it that way. Just like the Steelers became part of Pittsburgh. The people from Latrobe are my dad’s kind of people. I spent all that time up there when I was going to school. They were just real regular guys. My dad was a guy who loved the world he lived in and liked to express it: ‘don’t put on any airs, don’t overreact.’ He was not a pompous person at all.” Bill Austin, who coached the Steelers from 1966 to 1968, brought the team to Saint Vincent in 1966. The Steelers spent the first two weeks of preseason camp at the University of Rhode Island, then moved on to Latrobe. Rev. Conall Pfiester, O.S.B., treasurer and procurator, and Rooney, Sr. indicated the Steelers wanted to use Saint Vincent exclusively in 1967. But Rooney, Jr., recalls other visits to campus prior to that. “The Steelers always wanted to go up there. They would go up and use the fields and maybe stay at a hotel in Ligonier or Mountain View or something like that throughout the years and use the facilities now and then but they could never stay there because Saint Vincent didn’t have the dormitory space. “They put those retreats on all the time and they didn’t have time for the retreatants and the players. They finally came up and they built Kennedy Hall, you know the big auditorium and gym. It was terrific. And that was just built when I was there. We ended up using that for our training room. And then they built the dormitories on the side of the hill. It was perfect. We fit right in. “Coach Canterna, you know, Dodo Canterna, he called me on the phone and he said ‘I’ve been talking this up, and I’ve talked to Father Conall,’ I think he was in charge of lands and grounds, and he said ‘Father was for it too’. So I went and told my dad and my brother and our business manager, Fran Fogarty. Then they went up and talked and they ended up getting it. It’s like I said when I turned

70 years old: ‘I’ll take any compliments even though they are half-truths, and when I got to be 75 I took out-and-out lies if they were compliments. I was only a small part of that—it was Coach Canterna.” Training camp, Rooney, Jr., said, “was my life because I was in charge of the scouting. We brought all those players in. Coach Noll was the main guy but it was my responsibility. I remember before Noll got there we had Bill Austin and before that Mike Nixon.... The fields were very difficult. You would lose days of practice. The end of it was we’d have to get on a bus and go to a dry field, Jeannette High School, or Latrobe High School, or something like that. They had a monk named Brother Pat Lacey, and he spent his life, it seemed like to me, getting those fields into shape. They finally got real good fields. That’s over the years. “It’s important to me because over the years I’ve spent so much time there. You know the willow trees along the road there? When I was at Saint Vincent they put those in there and they were just little twigs. And as I went back and went back the trees got bigger and bigger and I thought ‘gee, I know I’ve been here a long time now when these little twigs are magnificent trees.’ You would look out and see the Chestnut Ridge, and when it looked like it was real far away you knew it was going to rain, and when it looked like you could reach out and touch it, you knew it was going to be a nice day for a few days. “It would get very hot up there. You’d get up in the morning and you’d get washed and shaved and you’d put your shaving lotion on and you’d put maybe one of your Steelers shirts on, your golf shirts, and you’d go down on the field and the bees would chase you all over the place because you smelled like a big flower. The players never smelled like that because they were all sweaty. “We learned that field so well, the scouts. There was just a little dip in part of it. You couldn’t see it unless you Saint Vincent Magazine
really got a feel for it. We’d run the guys in the 40-yard dash, you know, all the rookies, and we had the times from before, but we wanted to make sure that the guys would not run slower than the time we had. So we always insisted on running the 40-yard-dash where it was just a little bit downhill. We got away with it too. “I remember one time Jack Lambert was in a drill with Mike Webster. They call it the nutcracker, the Oklahoma drill. You line one guy up on defense and one on offense, an offensive lineman, and they’d hand the ball off. You didn’t tackle the guy. There’s two tackling dummies on each side, and the players would come out and hit each other. Mike Webster was our fifth round draft pick, and he was an undersized guy. We didn’t know if he could play in that environment. He came off the ball and he hit Lambert and he just stood him up and turned him, and the next play he did the same thing. Lambert’s starting to cuss by this time, and so I had one of the newspaper guys that was standing right next to me, Phil Musick, and he said to me, ‘What little old lady told you about that Lambert guy?’ He was our second pick. Well they went to another drill and it was more the whole team practicing. Lambert hit a guy so hard the guy’s helmet came off and flew up in the air like a football and I was vindicated. There’s a zillion little stories like that about what camp meant. For me it meant so much because I had my name on the back of all these guys. “Football’s a violent and emotional game,” he said. “They’re really trying to civilize it, and I hope they don’t ruin the game doing it, but they have to do it. But, boy, some of the practices we had, some of the blood, and the screams, and the yells, and the fights. It was wonderful.” Article based on an interview conducted by David Safin and Colleen Reilly.
Steelers Unparalleled M M E R Unparalleled could best describe the accomplishments of the Pittsburgh Steelers football franchise. Originally called the Pittsburgh Pirates when the team was founded by Arthur J. Rooney, Sr., in 1933, it did not have a winning season for nine years. Head Coach Jock Sutherland, hired in 1946, coached the team to its first division title, but he died suddenly the following year. Buddy Parker, appointed head coach in 1957, led the team to five non-losing seasons and a playoff game. He was followed by Mike Nixon in 1965 and Bill Austin in 1966. Then came the dynasty. Chuck Noll, then 37, was hired in 1969 to lead the team, making Joe Greene his first draft choice. It took 40 years, but the team won its first division title, then six consecutive titles and four Super Bowls, and was nicknamed the â€œteam of the decadeâ€? in the 1970s.

Steelers President Art Rooney II, left, Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., and Ambassador Dan Rooney, chairman emeritus, at training camp. Noll, himself a Hall of Fame member, retired in 1991 as the fifth-winningest coach in National Football League history. The team has been starting its season in Latrobe since 1967. The tradition continued with Coach Bill Cowher, who brought a fifth Super Bowl title to Pittsburgh, and then with Mike Tomlin, who set an NFL franchise record by coaching the team to its sixth Super Bowl victory. Winner of eight AFC Championships, participant in fifteen championship games and in eight Super Bowls, the team draws thousands of fans to Saint Vincent and to Latrobe each summer. The United States Ambassador to Ireland since 2009, Daniel M. Rooney, chairman emeritus of the Steelers, and his son, Arthur J. Rooney II, the current president, can be seen roaming the sidelines, watching practices, interacting with players and coaches, making the Steelers experience even more real for the thousands of fans who make the trek to campus. The Rooneys are only the second father-son tandem to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “The fans, when they come to Saint Vincent training camp, they want the whole Steelers experience,” said Father Paul Taylor, O.S.B., executive vice president at Saint Vincent College and one of the chaplains for the Steelers. “They want to drink in every possible thing that is black and gold, to be there and see the Steelers players and coaches.” “It’s been our privilege to host the Steelers and their fans all these many years,” said Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., college president. “I remember Art Rooney, Sr.,

well, walking the campus, smoking his cigar, and often showing up at the early monastery Mass.” When the Steelers moved training camp to Saint Vincent, Father Paul said, “this was the time close to the fire, so our campus had just gone through a very difficult time (in 1963). After the fire we rebuilt in very good ways, and with that rebuilding our facilities now became a lot more usable for the Pittsburgh Steelers. One of our alumni, Art Rooney, Jr., who graduated in 1957 and was working with the Steelers as a scout, wanted the Steelers to come to Saint Vincent, and worked very diligently with the Steelers and Saint Vincent to get them to come. “When I describe the camp to people who have never been here,” he said, “they are amazed at the number of people, and the access. They bring blankets and picnic baskets, and come early and stay late. They hope to get a chance to shake the hand of one of the Steelers and get an autograph or watch for new plays or watch for the up-and-coming stars. So when Peter King of Sports Illustrated names Saint Vincent as the number one training camp each year, I look to see those things that he sees, and it’s amazing to see that kind of positive energy. “So many people are unable to go to Heinz Field on Sunday for a football game because of distance or because they’re sold out or for many reasons, so for Saint Vincent to be able to provide the kind of access they do, and to give the very close access that the Rooney family and the Steelers organization values highly, we’re really pleased to be able to be partners in such an endeavor.”

es, Steelers training camp puts Saint Vincent on the map. But summer on campus is much more than that. From Saint Vincent Summer Theatre, to summer sports camps, to conferences, to summer academic programs, retreats, vow professions and ordinations at the monastery, and preparations for the fall school year, the campus is anything but quiet. The following pages are but a short synopsis of those activities.

The biennial program at the Fred Rogers Center included more than 150 attendees from all areas of children’s media, early learning and early childhood development. Hosted on campus in early June, the three-day event focused on “Building a Framework for Quality in Digital Media for Young Children.” Dawn Edmiston, D.M., assistant professor of management and marketing at Saint Vincent College, and a marketing consultant for the Fred Rogers Center, noted that this year’s conference used Twitter® for the first time: “There were more than 1,000 tweets over three days, with 60,000 impressions. We gained about 60 new followers, an almost 10-percent increase. Our Facebook® page has more than 1,600 ‘likes.’ The YouTube® channel has more than 54,000 views and more than a hundred subscribers. The strategic marketing of the center’s website has reached 99 nations. What we are doing is making a difference and that would certainly we hope bring a smile to Fred Rogers’ face as well.” The credentials of participants were impressive, Edmiston said. “Many work in a children’s media organization, and hoped to take the lessons learned and reflect and integrate them into their programming.” While video of the full conference proceedings is being edited and will be made available, online snippets called Fred Forward Minutes are presently offered on the center’s YouTube channel. “The conference used social media to emphasize themes and obtain a broader reach,” said Rita Catalano, executive director of the Fred Rogers Center. “The conference explored the positive potential of technology and digital media to support early learning and development, including the importance of consensus and partnerships in order to make a difference. In this regard, the conference, along with our Center’s other signature At top, right, Ellen Wartella, Ph.D., PNC Grow Up Great-Fred Rogers Center Endowed Senior Fellow, discusses the conference with Marge Petruska, a member of the Center’s Advisory Council.

programs, has planted seeds for partnerships with several organizations nationally and regionally.” In recognition of the Rogers Center’s leadership in recent years to advance quality in early learning and children’s media, Catalano had the opportunity immediately following last June’s conference to explore partnerships as an invited participant at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative convening in Chicago. Plans to follow up on these and other potential collaborations are underway. “The 2012 Fred Forward Conference was planned to build consensus on what quality in digital media for young children means and how to achieve it,” Catalano said. “It was an important extension of our recent work with the National Association for the Education of Young Children on a position statement on technology and interactive media in early childhood programs as well as a more recent emphasis on developing a framework for quality that includes educators, parents, and media creators. ” “The next conference—in 2014—likely will include more experiential and interactive sessions to demonstrate high-quality media products and uses. This will include opportunities to showcase our own signature programs—the Early Career Fellows program, and the Fred Rogers Center Early Learning Environment™(Ele)—while also shining a light on and learning from the incredible work of so many others who also are pioneering innovation in development and design, research, and educational practice using today’s technologies and digital media tools.”
Warren Buckleitner: “Are we moving Fred Forward?” Gregg Behr, Executive Director, The Grable Foundation: “We are moving Fred Forward because I think we’re coming to a modern understanding of the values that Fred used in his programming half a century ago and so you have the new generation of people who are beginning to apply that. We are beyond the definitional stage and we’re seeing the application of quality in learning settings and in production.”
Ellen Galinsky, President and Co-Founder, Families and Work Institute: “This workshop is what we envisioned when we were thinking about Fred’s legacy both before he died and after he died. As technology changed, Fred’s unique contribution was to bring together children and technology, but as technology changes, it should be grounded in research, it should be creative and it should find its own voice… To me the most compelling thing is that we’ve got to move beyond children being passive consumers of new media, however it evolves, to let them become the creators of the media.”
Warren Buckleitner: “Do you have any take on this whole thing, what does it mean?” Alexandra Klaren, Ph.D. Student of Communication, University of Pittsburgh: “It is about holding onto the work and the values of Fred Rogers and his project, beginning in the 1960s and trying to translate that and keep hold of it in the 21st century in terms of children’s media and the values that we still hold dear. But sometimes we are challenged a lot by media makers who tend to value the big bucks over the education and care of children and their development.”

Warren Buckleitner: “If Fred Rogers were here right now and I was to hand him an iPad®, what do you think he would say should be done with it?” Ryan Blitstein, Executive Director, SCE: I do think he would see it and just say ‘wow. This can be used for some amazing, amazing learning. This can be used for great things. And it can be used for things that are a complete waste of time for children.’ And I think he would say to creators ’Look at the research. Listen to what the researchers have to say. Look at children. Spend time with children, with parents, with educators, and create user experiences that really maximize learning in a way that gets to the whole child and goes beyond just kid with tablet to kid with tablet within and without the world’.”

Lewis Bernstein, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Education, Research, and Outreach, Sesame Workshop: “There has been a big debate about ‘is technology good or bad?’ and I think it’s really simple. Technology’s just a simple tool…. Technology is neutral. The new technologies maybe even have a little positive side to them because there’s so much potential for young children to interact with them, to use them in ways that we haven’t thought of. There’s potential to change and transform our schools if we use them wisely, not as a substitute for good teachers, not as a substitute for really good, strong interactions, but as a way to enhance children’s natural curiosity and to open the world to them at just a little bit of a touch.”
Warren Buckleitner: “How can technology enhance the life of a child?” Jesse Schell, Chief Executive Officer, Schell Games: “By giving them new realms that they can play in, by giving them ways to see and interact with worlds that used to be invisible but bringing them and kind of making them concrete and visible…. It’s more than just trying ideas on. It’s like living them and experiencing them. I think that’s a big part of it.” Saint Vincent Magazine
Students’ ‘Opportunity’ To Succeed Starts In Summer For Nancy Rottler and her staff, summer is no less busy than any other time of year. Her office is responsible for hosting two programs for students: Crossroads, a program whose mission is to provide promising youths who have limited access to a quality, Catholic education, the last full week of June; and Opportunity, a program for incoming SVC first-year students, which begins the last week of July and runs through the second week of August.
rossroads was started by a donor in the late 1980s,” said Rottler, Opportunity/ Act 101/Student Support Services (SSSTRiO) director. “Initially, the donor wanted to expand the educational opportunities for inner-city youths. Fortunately, the donor’s initiative turned into a foundation that raises money through grants to support youths from six Catholic high schools in the greater Pittsburgh region.” This year, 28 Crossroads Scholars took part in the program. The students enjoyed a variety of field trips, heard a number of inspirational and motivational speakers and had the opportunity to begin the arduous, but necessary process of resume building, to ensure their college admission process will be successful. In addition, the summer program exposes the students to art, architecture, science, botany, and a sampling of other disciplines, with the aim of stimulating their interests, perhaps in areas they have not yet experienced. Not all the scholars plan to attend Saint Vincent for their undergraduate work, but “we encourage them to apply here,” said Rottler, now in her 19th year at Saint Vincent. “Of the 30 Crossroads Scholars who have attended Saint Vincent, eight have completed master’s degrees, three are pursuing master’s degrees, one is pursuing a doctoral degree, and one has earned a law degree,”
Saint Vincent Magazine
PSYCHOLOGIST WRITER TEACHER SOCIAL W Rottler said. “The Crossroads graduate who earned the law degree is teaching a Criminology, Law and Society course during the fall 2012 semester here. Seven Crossroads Scholars are current Saint Vincent students.” Rottler’s other summer endeavor—Opportunity—is a three-week summer component for incoming first-year students. “The Opportunity staff—which is overseen by Alice J. Kaylor, Dean of Studies—has worked diligently to build a summer program that provides these students with a foundation for success,” Rottler said. “Not only do the students complete six college credits, but they have the opportunity to take part in curriculum-based field trips, such as visits to the Manchester Craftsman’s Guild, Fallingwater, and the Phipps Conservatory.” During the summer, the incoming first-year students are assigned an Opportunity advisor. The students meet with their Opportunity advisor weekly for the first semester and as needed or required until graduation. The students are also expected to attend tutoring sessions to support their academic pursuits. Over time, the Opportunity advisor’s role changes. For example, in conjunction with the Career Center, advice on securing an 42

David Ludwig Sculpture Acquired The School of Humanities and Fine Arts has acquired a sculpture created by the late David A. Ludwig, an artist who taught at Saint Vincent. Natalie J. Woodruff, an art education major from Ringoes, New Jersey, and a former student of Ludwig, poses with the new acquisition, “Structure 2314,” (below) which will hang in Headmasters Hall. Ludwig began his career as a painter and slowly evolved from twodimensional color field paintings on canvas to three-dimensional wall reliefs or structures constructed of plywood. He was an instructor of
drawing, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design at Saint Vincent until his death on January 23, 2011.

Campus Ministry Service In China Saint Vincent College Campus Ministry provides an opportunity for students to translate the College’s Benedictine principles into action through an annual summer service trip to Asia. While in Taiwan, the students worked at Cathwel Service, an orphanage for 120 children who are born with disabilities or serious illness or who are abandoned or parentless because their families are not able or interested in caring for them. Each day, the collegians help dress, feed, and play with the orphans. Besides the orphanage, the students also provide service in a remote mountain village where they visit with and work with children of all ages, as well as the elderly. This interaction includes visiting, playing games, sharing meals, and celebrating Mass. Through this one-on-one contact, the Saint Vincent student missionaries give of their time and love to transcend 47
language, age, and cultural barriers. During their free time the students also have unforgettable experiences as they explore different cultures, places, and foods in the markets and mountains. The service trip to Taiwan helps to integrate Saint Vincent’s Catholic, Benedictine values with the broader purposes of human life by “enrolling students in the world” and in service to those in need. This once in a life time opportunity helps students cultivate a life-long commitment to serve others as good stewards of God’s gifts.

Faculty News Briefs: Kollar, Antkowiak, Octave; Kuhar Father Rene Kollar, O.S.B., P’65 C’70 S’74 professor of history and dean of the School of Humanities and Fine Arts published an article, “Fr. Sydney Fenn Smith, S.J., and His Response to a “Rescued Nun” Story. An Episode in Nineteenth Century English Roman Catholicism,” in Archivum Historicum Societatis Iesu, publication of the Jesuit Historical Institute, Rome. Anti-Catholicism was prevalent in nineteenth century England especially as the numbers of Catholics increased and in the minds
of some threatened the Protestant character of the nation. Sisterhoods, which had been the object of scorn and suspicion since the eighteenth century, were characterized as inhuman institutions where the nuns suffered physical punishments and loss of liberty. A convert to Roman Catholicism, Father Sydney Fenn Smith, S.J., defended sisterhoods against this prejudice in his writings. The allegations of a so-called “rescued” nun immediately caught his attention, and through his efforts, the stories were

exposed as falsehoods. ***** Bruce Antkowiak, C’74, professor of law and director of the criminology, law, and society program, gave a presentation at the 29th annual Criminal Law Symposium in Harrisburg.

More than 250 attorneys statewide attended the program. ***** Thomas Octave, assistant professor and chair of the music department at Saint 50

Poetry Book Forthcoming Michelle Gil-Montero, assistant professor of English, has signed a contract for a book of poetry. The book, titled Attached Houses, will be published by Brooklyn Arts Press in 2013. In Gil-Montero’s words, the work emerges from a long interest in space and the way in which the mind renders abstractions as spatial. The poems in this book, in one way or another, explore this phenomenon in addition to the idea, as Bachelard put it, that “all really inhabited space bears the essence of the notion of home” and the accompanying “illusion of protection.” Poems from the book are forthcoming in the literary journals Spoon River Poetry Review and Caketrain. Other poems from the book have appeared in Colorado Review, Third Coast, Silenced Press, and Cincinnati Review.

Dr. Arcara Now A U.S. Citizen Assistant professor of mathematics Dr. Daniele Arcara and his wife and six children became an all-American family recently when he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Dr. Arcara, 38, who emigrated to the United States from Italy 15 years ago to earn a doctorate, changed plans after he met the woman who would become his wife, Angela. “Because I have lived here so long as a permanent resident, I already felt like an American,” Dr. Arcara said, “but it’s comforting to receive the certificate and officially become a dual citizen. I am proud that I will now be able to vote, serve on juries, and do other things that other American citizens do. This country is so nice. There are a lot of opportunities.” Dr. Arcara completed the months-long process on May 18 in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh, accompanied by Angela and their children. Dr. Arcara teaches mechanics and calculus. “I like the small campus where I can get to know the students,” he said. “It’s not just faces. I know a lot of the students on campus which is exciting. I also love working at a Catholic college since it is convenient for me to go to Mass in the student chapel every day. The Benedictine character of Saint Vincent shows you how to live a meaningful life.” Saint Vincent Magazine
Journey of a Lifetime SAINT VINCENT COLLEGE WOMEN’S SOCCER TEAM TRAVELS TO COSTA RICA, PREPARING FOR WHAT COULD BE A BREAKOUT 2012 SEASON. By Simon Stuchlik
ome memories will last forever. For the members of the Saint Vincent College women’s soccer team, their trip to Costa Rica in May will forever remain etched in their memories. The journey was a resounding success, sharpening their soccer skills as well as improving an already strong team spirit. When Coach Becky Stewart first brought up the possibility of a trip outside the United States in the offseason, she had to be absolutely sure that players would love the idea. The significant expense and planning effort could only be possible
if every single player was completely behind it and committed to helping, she said. Yet, in retrospect, the passion with which her players started to raise money still surprised her. “The girls sold T-shirts, candy, raffle tickets, took donations, and even hosted two tournaments,” she said. “You name it, we sold it.” The fundraising was helped by a recent NCAA rule change, which allows individual athletes to raise money for themselves in addition to their teams. A friendly competition between the players soon arose, resulting in a collaborative effort that raised the majority of funds and allowed every player to make the trip with minimal financial expense. Once the work was done, the fun began. On May 15, three days after Saint Vincent’s commencement, the team left for a week of soccer games, sightseeing, and team building. One player was particularly in her element—junior forward Tenesha
Saint Vincent Magazine
Corrales, whose family is from Costa Rica. “I grew up in western Pennsylvania, but the majority of my family still lives in Costa Rica,” Corrales said. “I try to go back once a year to visit.” So while the majority of the trip consisted of pre-planned activities, one day was reserved for a big family visit, with a Costa Ricanstyle dinner and a pickup game against the Corrales family later. That wasn’t the only soccer being played during the trip. Competitive games against two top Costa Rican teams, Allejula and Liberia, were also on the agenda, allowing the Bearcats to taste international competition for the first time. The journey to Costa Rica was a highlight of the stillyoung women’s soccer program at Saint Vincent College. Established in 1994 under coach Gary Butkovich, the program experienced some early growing pains, winning
just three games in the first two years. Current men’s soccer coach Keith Harmon took over in 1999, and continued building the team. Under Coach Harmon, who coached the men’s and women’s teams simultaneously, the Bearcats achieved double-digit win seasons four times in nine years. Stewart took over once Harmon decided to concentrate on men’s soccer, and the program once again found itself in a transition period. In 2006, Saint Vincent College began making the shift from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) to Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). While the switch enhanced an already strong athletics program at the college, NCAA regulations against athletic scholarships also increased the difficulty of recruiting potential soccer players. So when Stewart began her Saint Vincent College coaching career in 2008, she had her work cut out for her. No less than five prospective starters left the team before the beginning of her first season, leaving her with a makeshift squad that managed to win six of eighteen games. Slowly but steadily, she started to turn the program’s direction toward the top once again, reaching her highest win total so far with eight in 2011. Stewart played against a Harmoncoached Saint Vincent College women’s team during her own college career, and remembered the beauty of the campus when she saw Saint Vincent was searching for a women’s soccer coach. A Rochester, N.Y., native (“the same town as [U.S. national women’s soccer star] Abby Wambach!” she added), she applied for the job despite not knowing the area. She could not be happier. A little teasing about how bad the final score of that fateful game was between Stewart the player and
Head Coach Rebecca Stewart Harmon the coach (his team won) may remain, but the two—now colleagues—have forged a close friendship. Stewart now coaches multiple local club teams in her spare time, and most of her recruits come from that level. Her familiarity with local high schools and clubs allows her to recruit more narrowly, finding “all-around soccer players” who live and breathe soccer, instead of casual players simply looking for the social side of being a college sports team member. “She has done a great job,” said Harmon. “She is definitely good for the program. The trip to Costa Rica is only the latest example of that.” But she is not yet satisfied, and rightfully so. “There were some close games last year we could and probably should have won,” she said. “Hopefully, with many of our key players returning, we can be even better this year.” Her players agree. “We had a lot of heartbreak losses last year,” sophomore defensive midfielder Amie Dobracki added. “With our skill level and many of our players returning, double-digit wins are definitely possible.” And what about the playoffs? “That would be amazing!” junior defender Lindsey Daniels said. Making the playoffs may be a lofty goal for a squad still in transition,
but it’s not out of the realm of possibility. The team will be built on what Stewart called an “awesome freshman class” from 2011, adding two new freshmen to the young core that graduated just three seniors in May. Slowly but surely, the coach hopes to continue transforming her team from a defense-first approach into a more offensive, possessionoriented team. Such a transition could well enable the squad to make the jump into the NCAA playoffs for the first time. The team will have to count on a few key players to reach that goal. Chief among them is junior attacking midfielder Monika Derboghossian, who will be increasingly relied upon for leadership as well as her soccer skills. “Monika is involved in a lot of campus activities outside of the soccer team,” her coach said. “I fully expect her abilities as a leader to continue helping our team.” Daniels will also need to build on her strong 2011 campaign. Last year’s team captain as a sophomore center back, she anchors a defense that allowed just 1.44 goals per game. “We had initially tried her out

at midfield and forward,” Stewart said. “But when we put her at center back, she started killing it. Opposing teams had to start game planning around her.” Her imposing play in the center of the defense has earned Daniels two consecutive All-PAC honorable mentions. The team also hopes to stay healthier than last year, when key players like Dobracki were unable to finish the season. She tore her ACL in mid-October, and was scheduled for surgery in December. But while in surgery, doctors discovered a fractured kneecap that significantly complicated her recovery. “It was extremely difficult at times,” Dobracki recalled. “There were days when I would do my regular two hours of physical therapy and not make any progress whatsoever. I never realized how difficult it is to have to build up all of your muscle again from scratch. It would have been easy to give up.” But she didn’t give up and above all, she credits her teammates. “They were so supportive of me,” she said. “It was amazing to have 18 other players all supporting me and helping me through it.” Other players
like Daniels, who had experienced a similar injury as a high school senior, were crucial in letting Dobracki know what to expect and guiding her through the recovery. “I’m still impressed by her work ethic,” Stewart said. “I have never seen a player work so hard.” Dobracki was medically cleared to play in August, just three days before players reported to preseason practice. Her recovery process is just one example of the squad’s team spirit, an intangible that will be key to a successful season. “I have never been with a team as tight as these guys,” she said. “And even better, they are all good people. I don’t know how I got so lucky!” Now cleared to play after coming back from Stewart pours her heart into the injury, Amie Dobracki listens to mid-game women’s soccer team, and goes instructions from her coach. beyond teaching her players mere soccer skills. “I see myself in them,” are often more physical but less she said. “More than anything, I skilled with the ball, so it was great want to help them become better for the team to play against a team people, learning valuable life like that.” lessons.” Such lessons were certainly Having learned from their learned during the journey to Costa experience, the team beat the Costa Rica, a trip that “really tightened Rican Division II team Liberia by a their team spirit.” But competitive score of 4-1.

Tennis Team Opens With Early-Season Sweeps In the shade of the Science Pavilion and Gerard Hall, is one of the most successful sports at Saint Vincent College. The women’s tennis team is coming off what Coach Chris McMahon called its “best season ever,” including a 15-3 record and multiple podium finishes in the season-ending Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Tournament. McMahon is in the middle of his first season as tennis head coach, assuming the position after five years as an assistant coach to Jim Bendel C’60, D’85, who retired at the end of 2011. This year’s squad has significant potential, with talented freshmen including Shayla Landman and Jacquelyn Hauser adding to a team led by co-captains Amanda Gans and Stephanie Rubin. “This is their team,” McMahon said of Gans and Rubin, who are among the team’s best players on the court but who also lead the team in other ways by coordinating all off-court activities. “Both of them are outstanding people as well as tennis players. This team is as good as it is because of them.” Their leadership fits right into McMahon’s system, who emphasizes more than just winning tennis games in his coaching. “It’s about character formation, learning to work together as a team,” he said. “It’s about making sacrifices for each other, not just wins and losses.” Yet, as the team hopes to show once again in 2012, one can easily come as a result of the other. —Simon Stuchlik
Amanda Gans helped lead her teammates to a 9-0 sweep over visiting Waynesburg University. The team won all six singles matches in straight sets, while also taking all three doubles matchups.

Now, after five years of waiting, sixth-year Head Coach Bob Colbert can finally give up being impatient. The time has come to stop worrying about just “being competitive” and to move on to thinking about winning. Hired to bring football back to Saint Vincent after a 45-year absence— the first team fielded was in 1923 and the last in 1962— Colbert, for the first time in his 42-year coaching career, had to build a team from scratch. “It was personally very difficult for me,” he said. “When I got here it was ‘how can we be competitive enough to even stay in the games?’” But the 2011 team changed that, winning six of 11 games and going to the ECAC Southwest Bowl, where it lost to Lebanon Valley, 23-15. Colbert was named Coach of the Year in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. “Last year we lost games for the reasons every other team loses games—mistakes. It was not because we were young, or inexperienced.” Colbert leaned back in his chair. Next to his desk was a game-by-game team goals chart for the previous year, with team symbols designating whether Saint Vincent or the opponent had achieved victory in that particular goal. Bearcat logos prevailed in the item-by-item breakdown on most, but not all, goals. “Our goal was to develop a consistent winner, like we had at Bridgewater,” he said, describing the Virginia school he coached prior to moving to Latrobe. “When I came in to Bridgewater as an assistant coach we were 0-10 in 1998 and 5-5 in 1999. The next year we went to the playoffs, the second round, and the fourth year we Saint Vincent Magazine
played in the championship game—the Stagg Bowl—but lost by three points. “Now, when I see the crowds we’ve had at homecoming for the last two years—Thiel in 2010 and W&J in 2011, games we won—and when I see the students running onto the field to congratulate the players, and the support of the alumni, faculty, and staff, I know that’s why we brought football back, to create that kind of atmosphere, to build the Saint Vincent community.” This year will bring a number of changes—the team has lost 17 starters, including quarterback Aaron Smetanka, a fullback, four offensive linemen, two defensive tackles, a free safety, a cornerback, and three starters on special teams. Two linebackers will be missed—league-leading tackler Anthony Johnson and Armando Fortunato, who made first team all-conference. “But this team is confident. We’ve had a winning season and we no longer have to worry about whether we are good enough to just be competitive,” Colbert said. “Senior running back Huey Ehredt led the league in yards per carry last season (6.4 with 827 yards). He’s one of the best backs in the league. Senior Carl Jeune has been a leader at wide receiver, and senior Jovaughn Johnson, a leader in special teams last year, will be expected to take on a starting role at linebacker. “Our first three games are at home this year, so by the end of September we’ll have an idea what kind of team we’re going to be,” Colbert said.
Remembering Kevin Gatons, C’82
Inducted Into Athletic Hall Of Fame on September 8
Six years ago on November 7, Kevin Gatons, C’82, died doing what he loved—running and coaching. The cross country and track assistant coach at Greensburg Salem High School collapsed and died while running with a student in a warm-up session at the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association championship. “There is a peace in everything and how it happened because he was truly doing what he loved as he left us,” his wife, Cheryl, told the Post-Gazette after Top photo, Kevin his death, attributed to a Gatons in the Pittsburgh heart problem. “Kevin loved Marathon. Bottom it, he loved running and he photo, 1982, courtesy of was there for the kids whom Tom Harbert. he was a coach to whenever they needed him. He would always tell them, ‘Don’t give up, give it everything you have and push through everything.’ He was coaching and running until his final moment.” He was a fifth-grade teacher at Hutchinson Elementary School in southwest Greensburg working toward his principal’s certification at Saint Vincent. He and his wife, also a runner, had three children—Sydney, Quintin, and Lillian. “Kevin was a very determined individual,” said Tom Harbert, current coach of the women’s cross country team. “He was focused on what he did, and had a real high interest in athletics. He was always focused on what he did, and I could see the talent.” “He was one of the first people I met when I came to the area,” said Dr. Andrew Herr, current coach of the men’s cross country team and associate professor of economics. “He really had such an influence on so many people’s lives. Kevin was just a great guy. He knew what was right and he fought for what was right. When you meet someone like that it really does change your life. Kevin was about other people.” “Kevin was a fierce competitor,” said Steve Snider, college track coach and assistant men’s cross country coach. “I observed him winning many road races. And,
Saint Vincent Magazine
as nice as he was as a person regularly, once he put the uniform on, he assumed a different outlook on life because his will to win was so great.” “Kevin and I were running a race at the community college,” Harbert said. “Pre-race we were standing in line, discussing the race and kind of catching up with things. He said ‘excuse me coach, I have to go to the restroom before the race.’ The restroom was quite a distance from the start line, behind the building at the community college. Right after he left to go to the restroom the director of the race said ‘all right, everybody, get to the start line.’ The gun went off and Kevin was not there, and everybody took off very fast. We’re at the 200 or 400 mark of the race, and all of a sudden Kevin comes sprinting up alongside of everybody in the race, knowing that he was the last one starting, and way behind, and he eventually won the race. It was fantastic. I’ll always remember that story.” “I ran with him quite a bit,” Herr said. “He was one of those guys who would never give up. He would always give a hundred percent. He hated to lose. That’s what made him such a great athlete, and why he’s getting this honor.” “He was a man of few words, but he’d be very humbled to receive this award,” Snider said. “I’m sure that his family will be very proud of Kevin for achieving this.” “Kevin was one of the athletes who came through here who will always be a memorable person to me,” said Harbert. “Next year’s my fiftieth in coaching. We’ve had a lot of great athletes, but he was one of my favorites.” “I really wish Kevin were able to be here to accept this,” Herr said. “It’s with great sadness that he’s not. But I know that this would have meant the world to him, and I know this is a deserved honor because of all that he’s meant to the Saint Vincent community.”

James Ragan, C’66, D’90, Still Writing, Teaching, Traveling By Kim Metzgar
ames Ragan, C’66, D’90, has never let the grass grow under his feet. This summer he was, as he usually does, teaching an intensive summer writing course at Charles University in Prague. He continues to give readings throughout the United States, and the world, has read before five heads of state, for audiences at Carnegie Hall, and at the United Nations. In 1985, he was one of three Americans, along with Robert Bly and Bob Dylan, who were invited to perform at the First International Poetry Festival in Moscow. Published collections of his award-winning poetry include Too Long A Solitude, In the Talking Hours, Womb-Weary, The Hunger Wall, Lusions, Selected Poems, and the just-published The World Shouldering I. Also an accomplished screenwriter, Ragan served for 25 years as director of the Graduate Professional Writing Program at the University of Southern California. He still finds time, however, to return to Saint Vincent, where he serves on the Fred Rogers Center of Directors, and where he attends other functions, such as the Fred Forward Conference this summer. He has even more reason to return to campus now, as his son, Jameson, is a freshman. And this fall, his play, “Commedia,” will be performed at 6 p.m. Saturday, October 6, and 2 p.m. Sunday, October 7, as part of the homecoming activities. The Saint Vincent Players will perform in the Performing Arts Center of the Robert S. Carey Student Center. “Commedia” was produced by actor Raymond Burr in San Francisco and in Moscow in 1984. The play is a contemporary commedia dell’arte, based on a 16th century art form which relies on improvisation and an impromptu action called the lazzo. Lazzis are the tools of each actor’s imagination, and when encouraged, allow for as much boldness of action, innuendo, and self-indulgent virtuosity as can be endured. His most recent collaboration was brought to the big screen last year, where “The House” won the Kieslowski Award for screenwriting at Cannes, a 2011 Variety Critic’s Choice Award, and the New Visions Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. He recalled being approached in Bratislava by Zuzana Liova about the tale of family conflict in a rural Eastern European town. The story is about a high school girl who dreams of moving James Ragan with (from top) poets Seamus Heaney and Czech President Václav Havel, actor Robert Redford, and author Joyce Carol Oates at the United Nations.

to London to work, while her father builds a house for her, brick by brick, in the back yard. “It would never make it as an American film,” Ragan said. “It is a character-driven film. There is not one special effect in it.” When he was approached by Liova, he not only helped her to pull out the most important elements of the story, but he encouraged the producers of the movie to let her direct it. “Now she has completed her Ph.D. from the film academy and she has two director awards.” Born in Pittsburgh, the son of a steelworker and a seamstress who had worked making clothes for the infant Jesus of Prague statues, he came to Saint Vincent in the mid-1960s, amidst many “dynamics, protest movements, issues, and causes in the U.S. I came here and there were no distractions. I played basketball and baseball, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. James Crenner taught English here at the time, and he said ‘why don’t you do something with writing?’ And I liked it. I loved books. “I recall once I did an interview with a television station and they said you had a lot of fights when you were a kid. I didn’t know why, but with Slovak as my first language, as I grew older and started to learn English, the fights were less and less because I was using my head more than my fists. I was learning the language to survive, but I grew to love it. I still do.”
SOMETIMES Sometimes, and only if one dreams as little of snow or of crows in branches, and more of the woman who has come softly to you, raising a brow toward a door behind which a child crooks an arm above a sleeping eye, the image will turn to aureoles of dawn: gold, rose, vermilion, each in their own language. Sometimes, and only if it seems so little of the night has scuttered back into its cup, the word, blue, like a runner out of breath will fade, unfurled, into a cheapjack strip along a flag no longer striped, and spread its satin palms, face up into sunlight for only the sky of her smile.

And sometimes, and only in spring a dove from the river’s soft vale of lilies will fly as close to you as trust, and a calm in the great reds of autumn will, as often as you need, lie down beside you, raising a brow you’ve known above the eyes of the only woman you will ever have a need to dream or touch.

While writing was always a passion, Julia defined her voice while obtaining her master’s degree in journalism from Point Park University in 2010. It was also during this time that she discovered her love of food. Luckily she found three friends who also shared her passion and in 2009 Julia, along with Mandy McFadden, Laura Zorch, and Sarah Sudar, created the blog eatPGH. After two years of regular posting, the group was approached by Globe Pequot Press to pen the Pittsburgh edition in its travel guide food series. More than 200 restaurant visits and countless nights spent editing later, the book was finished in March. When she isn’t writing for eatPGH, Julia keeps busy at her day job developing social media marketing strategy for UPMC Health Plan. Julia currently resides in Bloomfield.

bike ride: one teammate was the official blogger, every single day’s account can be found here, he said that all of the parents followed this blog: http://ginabargiachi.wordpress.com/. Walt and his team biked 4,222 miles from Charleston, SC to Santa Cruz, CA and raised a total of $158,530 for the affordable housing cause. He was able to work 16 build days total, six of of those days were spent building the home in Colorado Springs, CO “from the ground up.” The other build days were spent doing various Habitat for Humanity tasks such as roofing, painting and pouring concrete. The team stopped to build homes in Charleston, Sumter and Greenville, SC; Tupelo, MS; Oklahoma City, OK; Silt, CO; Provo UT; Caldwell ID; Chico; CA. Walt explained that his favorite memory of the trip was the highest point, “Independence pass day was my favorite because it wasn’t just an individual mile stone but a team milestone. We had biked up 12,095 feet in Colorado all the way from South Carolina and we did it together.” —Sherrie Dunlap, C’09

Alumnus Creates a Legacy of Caring
r. Ferdinand Soisson, P’47, C’51, D’82, has created a legacy of caring at Saint Vincent College. He served as the second chairman of the Alumni Annual Giving program, and in 1974 he worked with then-Development Director James Bendel, C’60, to create the Biology Endowment Program. The program was designed to provide for the current and future needs of the College’s biology department, and alumni could participate in the endowment as an alternative to the Annual Fund. As part of that work, for several years he personally called and wrote letters to alumni working in the medical field, seeking donations and pledges to the endowment. Soisson entered the Saint Vincent Scholasticate in 1943, believing that he had a call to become a priest. In 1948, “I decided I could be a better doctor than a priest,” Soisson said. “In that five years, I learned regimentation. It taught me that unless you have some work ethic, you’re in trouble.” He went on to graduate from the College in 1951, before attending medical school at Georgetown University, where he graduated in 1955. He completed his residency while serving in the U.S. Air Force, fulfilling his commitment in 1963, when he returned to Johnstown to join the obstetrics/gynecology practice of Dr. Tom Seifert at Johnstown Mercy Hospital. Over the years, he and his wife, Dorothy, had nine children, four of whom attended Saint Vincent College [Laura, C’85; Theresa, C’87; Andrew, C’77; and Timothy, C’94]. One grandson, Sean, C’03, also attended Saint Vincent. At the College’s 1982 commencement, he received the doctor of humane letters degree for serving “humankind so professionally in the practice of life-giving, life-saving medicine; … because through personal involvement and charitable assistance you have helped to secure the future of your alma mater in the area of premedical education….” During 40 years of medical practice, he delivered 15,000 babies. After retiring from the practice in 1995, he ran for and was elected county commissioner for Cambria County, serving from 1996 to 2003. Brother Norman Hipps, O.S.B., asked Soisson to serve on the Boyer School Advisory Committee, and when the decision was made to build the Dupré Center, he was, according to Brother Norman, “the first person to say ‘let’s get this thing rolling.’” Soisson’s gift to get the ball rolling was $100,000. When asked why he worked so tirelessly for Saint Vincent, his response was simple: “I felt that my whole life was reflected in the Benedictine motto: ‘Ora et Labora.’” —Liz Cousins
