Looking Ahead According to Commonfund Securities, the latest data further supports their longstanding view that the U.S. economy is rebounding and inflation is well controlled. The forecast for the U.S. economy, corporate earnings, and the equity markets in 2014 is optimistic, as a rise in consumer net worth, consumer confidence, corporate cash flow, and profits continues. Kiplinger’s Economic Outlook for 2014 anticipates gross domestic product growth of 2.7 percent or better, with short-term interest rates remaining low throughout the year. Inflation is expected to tick up slightly to 1.8 percent, and business spending is anticipated to be up 4.5 percent to 5 percent as U.S. growth strengthens.

U.S. stocks ended the year with broad gains, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average having its biggest rally in 18 years to finish 27 percent up for the year, according to The Wall Street Journal. At the close of the fiscal year on June 30, the fundraising results for the Southern Connecticut State University Foundation significantly exceeded our estimates — ending at close to $1.9 million. The Foundation’s net assets also increased over the prior year to just over $20 million as a result of healthy growth in the financial markets. The market value of the endowments increased $1.7 million from last year to $15.4 million.

The Foundation’s Investment Committee revised their Investment Policy through a change in asset allocations. Commencing in January, the portfolio is investing in small allocations to Emerging Markets, Hedge Equity, Global Bonds, and Distressed Debt. This change in policy will help weather any potential downturn that may present itself in the future. The Foundation Board remains optimistic that its investment portfolio will continue to achieve earnings that, when combined with generous contributions from our constituents, should provide strong support. Our objectives remain to increase resources available for scholarships and programmatic initiatives.

Living the Dream Celebrated as a businesswoman, politician, and culinary wonder, Joan Specter, ’56, establishes a scholarship that honors friendship and the life-changing power of education.

By Natalie Missakian

J

oan Specter, ’56, can’t recall exactly how much tuition cost when she attended Southern, but she remembers it being “ridiculously low” — maybe $20 or $30 a semester — and to her that seemed like a lot. Specter, wife of the late U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania), was a newlywed and had come to New Haven so her husband could attend law school at Yale. The couple had very little money and was living on Whitney Avenue in the Quonset huts, a tract of prefabricated two-family homes often used by the military to house soldiers during World War II. “They were tin-roof buildings with one floor, and the walls were paper thin. You could hear everything your neighbor said,” Specter recalls. “One family lived in the front of the hut, and another family lived in the rear. It was a wild experience, I can tell you that.” It was there that Specter met Louise Jongewaard — everyone called her “Dode” — who lived next door and was also attending Southern while her husband studied at Yale Divinity School. Bonded by similar circumstances, the two women quickly became friends. “We were very poor. We had no money. But we had a house — a good ol’ half of a Quonset hut — and we packed up every morning and went to school,” Specter remembers. “And we felt like we were the luckiest people in the world that we could get a college degree for so little money.” So when Specter established a scholarship at Southern in December 2012, she decided to name it the Joan Specter and Louise (Dode) Jongewaard Endowed Scholarship in honor of their friendship and their pursuit of an affordable education. The money is earmarked for undergraduate students who are in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need. “I gave a gift to the school because they gave me a gift. They gave me the gift of education — an affordable education — and it was wonderful,” she says. Specter started at Southern in 1953 (she already had one year at Temple University under her belt), when the school was known as New Haven State Teachers College and was still located on Howe Street. Hers was the first class to graduate from the new campus, which bore little resemblance to the Southern of today. “They had just one building and no auditorium, and we graduated in this big open field, sitting on folding chairs,” Specter remembers. After graduating with a liberal studies degree, she returned to Philadelphia and earned a master’s in food and design from Drexel University. Her husband would go on to serve 30 years in the U.S. Senate, the longest of any Pennsylvania senator. Specter, meanwhile, made a name for herself as a dessert maven and successful businesswoman and later launched her own political career as a four-term Philadelphia city councilwoman. While in graduate school, she met her cooking partner and together they opened a culinary school. As her reputation in the culinary world grew (she also wrote a food column in the local paper and had a food-related radio show), she was approached by

“I gave a gift to the school because they gave me a gift. They gave me the gift of education — an affordable education — and it was wonderful.” — Joan Specter, ’56

a local entrepreneur who wanted to start a dessert business and asked Specter to develop the product. “I said, ‘Well, what do you have in mind?’ and he said he was interested in pies,” she recalls. “So I said, ‘Sure. But it will take me a while to figure out what I want to do.’ ” Specter tested recipes and came up with the two signature pies that made her — as one Philadelphia Inquirer food writer dubbed her — the queen of the local pie trade: the candied walnut apple and the double chocolate mousse. In 1977, she opened her bakery and started selling pies to local restaurants. The business grew into a wholesale food distribution company and by the late 1980s, her gourmet frozen pies could be found in restaurants and upscale food markets across the country. A few years into her business venture, she was approached to run for the Philadelphia City Council. She won the 1979 election and was re-elected three more times. Upon leaving politics, she worked for more than a decade as a fundraiser for the National Constitution Center, a museum located across from Independence Hall and dedicated to educating the public about the Constitution. Now retired, she lives in Philadelphia and has two sons, Shanin, who is an attorney, and Steve, an MD who has a doctorate in nutrition, as well as four grandchildren, one of whom attends Yale. She still keeps in touch with her friend Dode, who lives in California. “We talk on the phone all the time,” she says. Specter’s words of wisdom to Southern students and graduates are simple: Keep your mind open and say yes. “That’s what I did in my life. What did I know about running a bakery? Or being a city councilwoman? I mean, really?” she asks. “There are lots of possibilities out there. Just because you went to school to be a teacher, doesn’t mean you have to be a teacher. You can be anything you want to be. You just have to really want to be it.”

Part Two Douglas Relyea, M.S. ’08, capitalizes on an education program for seniors — and establishes a scholarship to help others earn their degrees. By Natalie Missakian

42 | Charitable Giving Report

D

ouglas Relyea, M.S. ’08, takes the catchphrase “lifelong learner” to a whole new level. The 83-year-old former chemist has spent the last 15 years taking classes at Southern, first as a graduate student pursuing his master’s in biology and now — after reaching that goal in 2008 — as an undergrad majoring in French. He is a proud, if unorthodox, member of the Class of 2014, who was set to receive his bachelor’s degree in May as this issue went to press. “I give new meaning to the word “senior,” quips the octogenarian, who is minoring in German and has grandchildren the same age as many of his classmates. Relyea is taking advantage of a program that lets Connecticut residents 62 and older enroll in courses at state public universities and colleges tuition free. Under the program, applicants can take unlimited courses where space is available after paying a registration and other basic fees. In addition to being offered at Southern, the program is available at Eastern, Central, and Western Connecticut State universities and the University of Connecticut, as well as the state’s community colleges. Relyea figures by the time he is finished, the state will have subsidized his education to the tune of nearly $50,000. After doing the math, the Bethany, Conn., resident decided he should pay the debt forward, so he established the Douglas I. and Mary L. Relyea Endowed Scholarship at Southern, named for Relyea and his wife. The scholarship is open to undergraduate students majoring in French or German who maintain a grade point average of 2.7 or higher. “I looked around at all these students paying for every credit and thought I really should give something back,” he says. Relyea has a long-held commitment to education. He already holds a bachelor’s from Clarkson University, a master’s from Cornell, and a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina. He also completed one year of post-doctoral studies at the University of Wisconsin and worked for 40 years as a chemist with Uniroyal. He has received 19 patents for his research, developing insecticides and fungicides for crop protection and has authored 25 scientific papers. When he retired, his desire to keep learning drew him to Southern, where he has been taking classes since at least 1999. Steven Burian, chair of the Biology Department, who worked with Relyea on his master’s thesis, notes that it’s likely Relyea had taken all of the biology courses in Southern’s catalog. “He took a huge number of courses, probably double the number of courses that you need for a master’s degree,” Burian recalls. Relyea says he pursued his master’s in biology because he has a deep interest in insects, entomology, and ecology — a curiosity that was piqued during his many years working on insecticides. His master’s thesis focused on the taxonomy of the mayfly. His interest in world languages also goes back to his days as a chemist. He was expected to have rudimentary knowledge of French and German because scientific terminology was rooted in

“I looked around at all these students paying for every credit and thought I really should give something back.” — Douglas Relyea, M.S. ’08

those languages, but he always wanted to master them, he says. Relyea jokingly calls himself a transfer student, explaining that Southern gave him credit for 10 liberal arts classes he took while earning his first bachelor’s degree more than 60 years ago. He also received a waiver for the mandatory “Introduction to Wellness.” Relyea has run a total of 180 road races and 120 biathlons and continued to run until a knee injury eight years ago forced him to give up the sport. He estimates he has logged around 35,000 miles. “I’d done races. I had a body mass index (BMI) of 21. I have an annual physical exam. I eat three meals a day at a table. I was, at the time, 81 or 82 and still breathing in and out. Did I really need a course in Introduction to Wellness?” he recalls. So he wrote to the department chair of Public Health and pleaded his case. He quickly got an e-mail back from his secretary, telling him that the department chair was granting the waiver “and we both envy your BMI.” Luke Eilderts, assistant professor of French, says Relyea brings a different perspective to the classroom than a student fresh out of high school. “He’s beloved by his fellow students. He’s very intelligent,” says Eilderts, who coordinates the French program. Burian adds that Relyea was a role model for the fledgling scientists in his classes, who were learning how to ask the right questions and apply scientific principles. “Doug was great at that because he already had all that background. It was second nature because that’s how he lived his life,” Burian says. When the class discussed research papers, for example, Relyea often questioned their conclusions. Sometimes he even re-did the analyses. “He would never accept anything at face value — which is how science should be,” Burian says. Relyea says he is getting an “excellent” education at Southern and notes that a key to finding happiness in the golden years is to come up with a five- to 10-year plan before retiring. “Don’t just leave the job and go home and put your feet up and watch TV,” he says.

The Teachers’ Teacher Professor Nancy Marano’s passion for education influenced countless students as well as her family. A memorial scholarship established in her honor continues her legacy at Southern and beyond. By Natalie Missakian

W

hen Kristin Marano leaves the house — even if it’s just for a quick run to the grocery store — she always brings a book with her “just in case.” It’s a habit she learned from her mother, who was never without a book even when she became too ill to read them herself. “We were encouraged to have a book with us wherever we were, wherever we went,” says Marano, who describes a childhood home filled with bookshelves. “We always had family discussions about what we were reading.” Kristin’s mother, Nancy Marano, ’68, believed reading was the foundation for good writing, and she was passionate about passing on that skill to her own family and students. At Southern, she was a longtime professor of education and an architect of the university’s Writing Across the Curriculum program, which promotes writing in every academic discipline and offers workshops and tutoring for faculty and students. In a fitting tribute, the university dedicated a student writing competition in the professor’s honor after her death in 2011. The Nancy Marano Writing Across the Curriculum Award annually recognizes the best student work completed in writing-intensive courses. “In her mind, writing really was the essence of human society,” says her husband, John Marano, (pictured at left) of Madison, Conn. “She loved good writing, she loved her students, and she wanted her students to be able to communicate effectively.” To honor that passion, he established the Nancy Laine Marano Endowed Scholarship Fund at Southern. The scholarship is open to a junior or senior in the School of Education who maintains a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. To be considered, applicants must write an essay explaining why they deserve the award. “She was quite an effective communicator,” John Marano adds. “She had a special way with people, making them feel comfortable.” One of her first students was none other than her husband. The two met at a New Haven nightspot while John was at Yale University and Nancy was attending Western College. She had come home to the New Haven area for Thanksgiving break and, serendipitously, “it was one of the few times I hadn’t gone home for a holiday,” he recalls. A friend of Nancy’s suggested he ask her to dance. “I followed the advice,” he says. Soon after, she transferred to Southern, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education. They married in 1968 and have two daughters, Kristin and Lauren. Although John worked in engineering, his job required more and more writing as he climbed the corporate ladder into management. “I needed a lot of help,” jokes Marano, who held corporate executive positions at Mobil and Union Carbide and now owns a company that makes medical devices. “She took me under her wing and helped me with my writing and communications, which I really believe helped my career. As time passed, if I had an important piece of writing for my job, she would review it and give me pointers, and I would do the same for her. We bounced things off of each other in that way.”

“She was always a teacher — as far back as I can remember.” — Kristin Marano Nancy Marano began her career as a special education teacher in Charleston, W. Va., specializing in children with learning disabilities, and later held teaching and tutoring positions in Princeton, N.J., and New Canaan, Conn. She earned a master’s in special education from West Virginia Graduate College in 1977 and a doctorate in educational studies from the University of Michigan in 2000. In 2001, she joined the faculty at Southern, where she was actively involved in academic life. In addition to serving on the Writing Across the Curriculum Committee, she was a member of the Autism Spectrum Disorders Advisory Board and was faculty advisor to the Future Teachers of America. Professor of Mathematics Maria Diamantis, who worked closely with Marano, describes her colleague as enthusiastic, patient, and caring. “One of her students gave her a plaque that read ‘You Inspire Me,’” says Diamantis. “She kept it in her office, where she could easily see it and always be reminded of her mission. She was completely devoted to her students.” “I only ever knew my mom as dedicated to the discipline of education,” says Kristin Marano, who now lives in Winston-Salem, N.C. “To say that she was passionate about it sounds limited and trite. It was more just who she was, foundational to her being, part of her core. She was always a teacher — as far back as I can remember.” Marano says her mother often spoke of her students and how much she enjoyed watching future teachers in the classroom. “You could see the twinkle in her eye when she’d talk about them,” John Marano adds. In her personal life, Marano believed strongly in human rights, women’s rights, and helping the poor. She also was fiercely protective of those she loved, her husband says. Although diminutive in stature and typically reserved, she often surprised people when she spoke in defense of her beliefs. “She was calm but very determined,” John Marano says. He remembers one family vacation in Cape Cod when a sales clerk spoke harshly to the couple’s young daughters. Marano marched back into the store and gave the woman an earful about treating children with respect. “She was reserved until you pushed her buttons,” he jokes. Knowing how thrilled she would have been to help others obtain a college education, he says the family has enjoyed meeting some of the scholarship recipients, describing them as “wonderful, pleasant, and very smart students.”
