The Many Faces of Science at Southern Utah University From its original home in the Braithwaite Liberal Arts building (below) to its current home in the Science Building (top left), SUU’s College of Science has been shuffled across campus to accommodate its burgeoning enrollment. Filling the footprint of the recently condemned Life Science Building, the new Science Center will provide the classroom, lab and meeting space necessary to carry science into the future.

History Museum, showcase for the University’s expanding collection of artifacts. Its location will be the first built expressly for the Museum, which first opened in June 1963 in the old Commons Building and remained there until 1985 when the building was razed and the collection moved to the old South Hall. In 2002 the old South Hall building was torn down to be replaced by the existing South Hall, and the museum exhibits were eventually transferred to a room in the Life Science building. Today, safely tucked away in the basement of the Electronic Learning Center, they await their new home which will serve as an inviting entrance to the new SUU Science Building.   To join the modern-day founders as a donor to SUU’s Science Center, please contact Cameron Brooks at 435-865-8045.



Garth Frehner (’56), namesake of the forthcoming Frehner Natural History Museum at Southern Utah University, spent more than 40 years building roads and bridges. Now in retirement, Frehner’s work is more figurative, helping construct thoroughfares for SUU’s science students. The founder of Nevada’s Frehner Construction and his wife Jerri have been named Modern Day SUU Founders by President Michael T. Benson, and since their retirement to New Harmony in 2004, become fast friends of the University. Most recently, they are proud to see grandson Kyle Davis, the Utah 5A basketball MVP of 2010 state champion Alta High School, become a Thunderbird for Coach Roger Reid this 2010 season—and already have their eyes on seats in the Centrum Arena. However, Garth’s relationship with the University is not a new one,

by any means. In 1954 he graduated from Moapa Valley High School and enrolled at what was then the newly-renamed College of Southern Utah. “I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I tried a little bit of everything,” he says. He began in animal husbandry under VR Magleby but he’d pretty much had his fill of farm life, he says, and tried auto mechanics, then pre-dentistry, before settling on engineering which was, he says, “the closest thing to what I ended up doing.” Along the way at CSU, he earnestly and enthusiastically participated in chorus under the direction of the legendary Roy L. Halversen, and fondly remembers such southern Utah pillars as Theron Ashcroft and Royden Braithwaite as essential to his learning experience. Following his time at CSU, Garth drove a truck for a few years, then, perhaps drawing on what he’d learned of business as a CSU student, opted to build his own trucking company and, subsequently, his own construction and aggregate business along with brothers Wes and Vern. The company became one of the largest in the intermountain area and, he says, at one time did more work than all other contractors in the state of Nevada combined, along with work in Utah and California.

As busy as he became, though, Garth always made time for his hobby of hunting, which he took up in the early 1940s. To say that Garth and Jerri hunt is akin to saying that LeBron James plays basketball. Evidence of their shared hunting prowess and venturous traveling spirit is abundant at their home as more than five dozen trophies are artfully displayed (so artfully, that the Frehners regularly host home tours of their lions and tigers and bears…and any number of large and small game, from musk oxen to raccoons and elephants to foxes). With an eye on education, the Frehners often host elementary school children in tours of what they call a home, but what might well be called a museum, and enjoy the

beautifully manicured grounds of the Frehner home. The impressiveness of their grounds extends to the Frehners’ yard—evidence of Jerri’s favorite local hobby: gardening. She and Garth also are avid tennis players and usually find the time for a doubles match, and Jerri has taken up painting with watercolors over the past four years and attends many workshops. Garth and Jerri have traveled extensively, with some 90 percent of the trips devoted to hunting. They’ve been to such far-flung spots as Mongolia, Spain, Alaska, the Arctic, Mexico, seven countries on the African continent, Japan, Sweden, all of western Europe, New Zealand, China, Korea, Hawaii, six Canadian provinces, Russia, Kyrgyz-

stan, Tajikistan, Fiji, Norway and the Virgin Islands. Though well-traveled, the couple has gained a deep appreciation for southern Utah and looks forward to coming home at each trip’s end and to visiting with their 10 children, 34 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. With a newly rekindled relationship with SUU and ardent interest in the progress of the Science Center project, and with number-onefan-status to earn with their T-Bird grandson, the Frehners are again pulled back to southern Utah after exotic adventures. The University welcomes them with open arms and applauds their generosity in sharing their treasures with the southern Utah community.

One of Cedar City’s oldest parks, Canyon Park remains a local favorite. One of its defining features: an intersecting stream, perfect for wading. Other amenities include sand volleyball, picnic areas, a playground and the Coal Creek Trail that runs from Canyon Park to Bicentennial Park.

Science Building: Swing by to check in on the progress of the new Science Center, slated for a spring 2011 opening. Restored Old Main: View the most beautiful renovation on SUU’s campus. Historic photographs, artifacts and an interactive kiosk take you back to earlier days. SUU Fudge: A longtime convenience store staple, SUU’s homemade fudge is a must on your next campus visit—a great snack for the big game.

PARK DISCOVERY For the young and young at heart, Park Discovery’s sturdy wood play structures include spaceships, secret hideouts and a dinosaur dig,

KOLOB CANYON The lesser known portion of Zion National Park, Kolob Canyon is just as impressive and much closer to campus — perfect for a quick hike or picnic.


Cedar City has more to enjoy than you may remember. Make the most of your Homecoming visit.




OUTSTANDING ALUMNUS AWARD Since earning an accounting degree from SUSC in 1972, Larry Ellertson has fashioned an enviable career in business as well as public service. A quarter-century of work with Utah Power and Light culminated in his tenure as general business manager before his 2001 retirement. He also served as Mayor of Lindon City from 1996 to 2005, when he was elected to the Utah County Commission which he now chairs. Alongside a lifetime of professional success, Larry has also worked with many community organizations and received the Utah Lt. Governor’s Civic Volunteer of the Year Award in 2000. Larry and his wife Linda Christiansen (‘70) are the parents of five children and nine grandchildren. Larry Ellertson (1972)

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD As student body president, member of the school relations staff and director of the Governor’s Honors Academy, Julie Stuart (now Castle) was an influential member of the SUU community; she continues to make a difference. Following her magna cum laude graduation in political science and history, Julie worked in the former Soviet Union for nearly a year, setting up a student exchange program before embarking on a career in marketing. She is currently director of community programs and services at the Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT, and has helped build model animal lifesaving programs. Julie and her husband, Gregory, run marathons and hike. She also enjoys restoring historic homes and gardening. Julie Stuart Castle (1992)

YOUNG ALUMNUS Justin Harding embodies the success of SUU’s political science internship program. While working on a B.S. in political science, Justin served as a 1999 Capitol Hill intern to former Congressman James V. Hansen and was later hired as Hansen’s full-time legislative assistant. He then worked for Congressman Rob Bishop, and now serves as chief of staff to Congressman Jason Chaffetz. Over the years, Justin has worked on behalf of Utahns on natural resource, energy, agriculture and transportation issues. His work ethic and love for all things Utah have served the state well. He and his wife, Bridget, live in northern Virginia with their three (almost four) children, where they are active in civic, community and religious affairs. Justin Harding (2000)

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD A lifelong friend of SUU, David Nakken earned his business administration degree while working at the local family business, Parkway Motors, where he now serves as owner and general manager. David’s company supports SUU Athletics and the Utah Summer Games and, along with his wife Stephanie (’89), also personally contributes to the advancement of the University as members of the Old Main Society. The couple has five children and one grandchild, and together they all enjoy athletics and family trips to Lake Powell. David also stays busy with service to his church as stake president of the married student wards at SUU for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He also recently served as co-chair of the successful fundraising drive for the addition to the SUU Science Center.

SUU annually recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves through their careers, community service and commitment to SUU. Please join us at the Alumni Brunch this Homecoming weekend to congratulate this year’s recipients.


Coming Home Ten Great Reasons to

visit Cedar City this Fall

The football game and a smooch at midnight is just the beginning when it comes to nostalgia this Fall 2010 Homecoming weekend. To entice our T-Bird true to return to the campus you once called home, we fielded responses from hundreds of SUU students, employees, alumni and community members to compile a highlight list of the region’s best. It certainly wasn’t easy compiling all-thingsCedar City into one neat package. And we invite you to come back this fall to assess the frontrunners; then drop us a line to share what you most enjoyed and what you’d substitute with your own sentimental faves. For now, in no particular order, the following Cedar City gems come highly recommended by, well, all of you.


Coming in with the readers’ choice award, more than 63 percent of you who voted gave Cedar City’s sherbet-colored sunsets a nod. A sunset’s intense red and orange hues are often caused by the scattering of sunlight over dust particles. Considering the dust that flies each day from our open fields, undeveloped surroundings and stirring winds, it’s little wonder Cedar’s evening skies remain a daily spectacle.




One of southern Utah’s most distinct natural wonders, the Parowan Gap is a natural mountain pass covered in Native American etchings that have been preserved for centuries. The Paiute Indian Tribe considered the gap “God’s Own House,” and recent research reveals its importance to early Native American tribes. The annual solar and lunar events which shine through the gap create a natural calendric structuring of the year’s times and seasons which have been referenced in many petroglyph inscriptions (example below) on the Parown Gap’s smooth boulder walls.

An old-time gathering spot for Cedar City locals in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the original Bulloch Drug soda fountain was the hallmark of the store’s popular café (reserving the upstairs of the original Main Street building for social events such as dances and luncheons). When the Vickers family purchased Bulloch Drug in 1996, they set to work restoring the building’s original charms, adding a 1942 Bastian Blessing Soda Fountain from Chicago. The fountain has quickly reestablished its place as town gathering spot, offering something for every sweet tooth.



AUTUMN MOUNTAINS Autumn in Cedar City is quite literally golden, thanks to the native aspen trees scattered across mountaintops and valleys. In fact, the NBC Today Show rated Cedar City as one of the “Eight Great & Unusual Fall Foliage Destinations”. Travel Editor Peter Greenberg called Cedar City “the sleeper” in the rankings, heralding endless miles of easily accessible trails to wander through the striking natural foliage.

Back on campus, the changing leaves and cooler climate serve as backdrop to T-Bird tradition at its best: True T-Bird – Renew vows, so to speak, with your college (or lifelong) sweetheart by kissing beside the Old Sorrel statue on the eve of Homecoming. Tailgates – Nothing says autumn like a football tailgate with old friends, especially on Homecoming weekend. Reunions – Known for the personal education we provide to every one of our students, Many Thunderbirds have become lifelong friends as they’ve studied and played together. Relive the dream as you catch up with classmates back on campus.

SHAKESPEARE The classical Shakespearean and contemporary performances are just the beginning of all that comprises the southern Utah Shakespearean Experience. A mainstay on SUU’s campus since 1962, the Festival produces six summer and three fall plays every year. With the addition of backstage tours, audience seminars and the free nightly Greenshow (as well as tasty fares peddled by very convincing Old English Brits), it is safe to say that the Utah Shakespearean Festival comes by its “Best Regional Theatre” Tony Award honestly. Come see for yourself.


Nearly a decade ago, local automobile enthusiasts began gathering every Monday night for “hamburgers and hot rods” at the appropriatelythemed Hermies Drive In. Word has spread, and the group regularly welcomes hot rod enthusiasts from across the region all interested in a little automobile eye candy. On any given Monday night, hot rod owners circle anywhere from 10-20 classic cars for a little shop talk, great food and new friendships.

CANYON PARK TRAIL There’s no better place to bump into Cedar City locals and old college friends than on the Cedar Canyon Walking Trail. Winding through town, across Coal Creek and into the mountains above one of the city’s oldest parks, the trail is the perfect backdrop for an evening stroll—and the perfect showcase of the natural beauty surrounding our quiet college town.


Need we say more? You haven’t experienced Cedar City until you’ve eaten a Pizza Factory breadstick fresh from the oven and brushed with butter. A word to the wise: the pizza is just as tasty, so be careful not to fill up on appetizers.



With the entire valley at your feet, the overlook from Cedar Mountain puts the “C” in Cedar City, offering hikers, bikers and the casual drive-in viewer a bird’s eye view of campus, Main Street and even Quichipa Lake west of town.



Many T-Birds listed the traffic (or lack thereof) as one of their favorite things about Cedar City. Though you’ll rarely stop at more than one or two stoplights while driving through town, there is one day when Main Street reaches peak traffic. The Livestock & Heritage Festival celebrates the annual herding of livestock off the mountain with a parade of more than 1,000 sheep through the middle of town. Throw in antique tractors, bagpipe bands and stock dogs, and you’ve got one of the most unique parades in the nation right here in Cedar City.

Denise Woodbury SUU with






faculty who have forever impacted students,


Denise Woodbury was no exception. A brilliant scholar, dedicated




community member, Denise touched all who met her in her career spanning nearly a decade. She passed away May 2 and will be truly missed. Born at Tachikawa Air Base in Tokyo, Denise was always a skilled academician. She graduated from high school at just 15 and from BYU at the age of 18. Denise went on to complete her Ph.D. from the University of Utah and later earned a master’s degree in psychology and two other master’s degrees in education fields. In her tenure as an assistant professor of business administration and





finance, Denise was a mentor to thousands of SUU business students. “She genuinely cared about students, both academically and personally,” says R. Kim Craft, chair of the SUU Department of Economics and Finance. To carry on her legacy, the Woodbury family has established the Dr. Denise Woodbury Endowment for Business Students Scholarship to help business students attend SUU.
