Storck ’54 Helps Create Scholarship for Veterans and Families This new scholarship adds to Morris’s demonstrated commitment to supporting military students. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5039 recently created a scholarship for veterans and their families at the University of Minnesota, Morris. New for 2016–17, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5039 of Morris Scholarship has been designated for a veteran, the son or daughter of a veteran, or the grandson or granddaughter of a veteran who is in his or her third or fourth year at Morris. “The VFW slogan is ‘No one does more for veterans,’” says Post 5039 Commander and former WCSA Alumni Association board president Ted Storck ’54. “We at the Morris post wanted to add to
that. Because we’re made up of veterans who’ve served in foreign wars, we wanted other veterans to have an opportunity to get some advanced education.” This new scholarship, made possible by the post’s generosity, adds to Morris’s demonstrated commitment to attracting and supporting military students. The campus is approved by the Minnesota State Approving Agency to participate in all Veterans Education Assistance Programs. It also has been designated a Victory Media Military Friendly® School five consecutive times.
Greetings from the Senior Director of External Relations As you might imagine with the onset of fall, the Morris campus is abuzz with returning and new students. Not all that different, I suspect, from when WCSA Aggies regrouped here each October as they arrived to make this place their home for the school year. The excitement of meeting new friends and reconnecting with old friendships formed in previous school years is a rite of passage for all students, regardless of when or where they went to school. I think the beginning of the school year always provides a nice sense of continuity, assuring us that things will be okay—no matter who is elected president of the United States in November! Aggies can feel proud that the legacy of receiving a top-notch education on this campus continues. U.S. News & World Report released its 2017 college rankings, naming Morris as one of the nation’s Top Public Liberal Arts Colleges. This is the 18th consecutive year in which Morris has been included on this list. The comfort of continuity and solid leadership for the country is not the only concern for Morris this fall as we look forward to learning who our next chancellor will be. Search Committee Chair Peh Ng recently notified the campus that all applications have been reviewed, and we will invite finalists to campus in late October and early November. These are exciting times for the country and for Morris. You can call or email me anytime with questions, concerns, or just to say hello. I always enjoy hearing from alumni and can be reached at 320-589-6394 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Campus News Update on the Chancellor Search University of Minnesota President Eric W. Kaler re-launched the search for Morris’s next chancellor in the early summer. Chancellor Jacqueline R. Johnson, who was expected to step down in July, agreed to remain in her role through the fall 2016 semester. The search committee is hard at work, with plans to name a new chancellor around Thanksgiving. Watch for an announcement in the next issue of AlumNEWS!
Campus Continues to Earn Praise Once again, Morris begins the academic year with a host of rankings and recognitions. The campus has recently been praised by: The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. News and World Report Sierra Club’s Cool Schools Washington Monthly Colleges of Distinction National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education MONEY FORBES Fiske Guide to Colleges
Despite the chill in the air, the stands were packed as the Cougars won their Homecoming football game against Martin Luther College on October 8.
Greetings from the Alumni Association President A little bit about myself: my father, Alvin Payne ’31; brother Douglas ’54; and Eugene ’58 attended WCSA. I married Harriet Vaala ’60 in 1961. We have three sons. I farmed with Eugene until 1995, since then with two of my sons. I have been semiretired for about eight years, but farming still holds my interest. I am very grateful to have attended WCSA. It is very hard for me to put into words the feelings I have for that part of my life. Reunion was well attended as always. It was good to be back on our campus and meeting up with classmates and friends from other classes, and the board is already planning for 2017. We will be having winter gatherings again for alums in the South. Looking forward to your attendance. We shall strive to have reunions for a long time to come. Our finances are in good shape for now, but the newsletter fund is going to need continued support as we go forward into the future. Small donations continue to come in. If you feel the urge, we will welcome your monetary support. The newsletter goes out to 1,100 Aggies. The newsletter is also online at alumni.morris.umn.edu/wcsa-alumni-association. A special thank you to Carla Riley for all the things she does for our groups to make reunions come off. Tom Payne’60

In Your Words
AGGIES SHARE MEMORIES FROM THEIR DAYS AT WCSA
Francis Buer ’37 shares a trio of tales about the Model T... “In 1933 I graduated from the eighth grade. I had thought about going to Morris ag school, and having a way to go home and back on the weekends appealed to me. Luckily, a short time after, I spotted an old Model T Roadster along the road just a few miles north of Madison, and I got it for $25. The manifold heater, which came up through the floor, made it plenty Buer in 1936 warm even in the coldest weather. ... For Homecoming Mr. Rolfe lent the freshman an old Model T piece-of-junk that belonged to the school. I was given the privilege of driving it in the parade, and the idea was to make it look like there was no one driving it. This meant that I couldn’t see where I was going a lot of the time— others riding on it had to tell me directions. During the parade it was overheating, and it ran so poorly I had to rev up at times to keep it going. Somehow we got it back on Mr. Rolfe campus without any mishap. ...Another time Allen Larson and I were hauling a trailer back to campus in my Model T. We had just crossed main street when a Henry Candy truck passed us going at a pretty good clip. It made a left turn in front of us, and the back door flung wide open. Two or three boxes of candy spilled out on the street, but whoever was driving kept on Larson in 1937 going. We naturally stopped and hurriedly picked it all up and continued on. We could hardly believe our good fortune. When we got back to the dorm there were others who gladly helped us find what to do with it. It was fun, and they were good bars; but they disappeared pretty fast, as you can be sure.”
Diane Jerpseth Madsen ’62 shares her thoughts on the “Value of an Aggie Education” “My home economics teaching career began at WCSA. Our Home Economics building was the very best I have seen anywhere, including the college facilities where I got my degree. We were Jerpseth in 1962 privileged to have the wonderful facilities, faculty, and great learning environment that we had on the high-school level. I value the education I received there very much. The things I learned in home economics have been helpful in all areas in my life. I am especially thankful for the childcare classes, sewing classes, foods and nutrition, and marriage, and relationships. My college home economics classes were just an extension of what I had been taught at Morris. I have been involved in home economics in diverse ways for 30 years and enjoyed the work, especially the people. Retirement has added a new career opportunity in my chosen field, as I am working in a quilt shop two days a week. I remember asking Mr. Gray why I had to study geometry, and he told me that one day I may want to be a quilter—little Mr. Gray, advocate did I know! I should have for geometry studied harder! The WCSA campus will always be a very special place to me. I feel so fortunate to have had the wonderful experience to have really ‘grown up’ there, and for all the opportunities that it has opened in my life.” 7
Wendell Shiell ’46, Richfield, writes: “Getting in touch with classmates this summer in Morris was special, first because it was 70 years since we graduated. It was also great to touch base with old classmates to realize we have all benefited from this school! To have nine in our class have a picture together was also fantastic, as it keeps these people as a part of my memory in my computer as well. These are all special people for me.” Arloa Larson ’48, Litchfield, writes: “This news comes from Emmaus Place in Litchfield. Many activities happen in our facility. I am very happy being here and enjoy many activities, including Chapel on Sundays and Thursday afternoon Bible studies. We have good meals if we choose, or we may prepare food in our own apartment, enjoy food in one another’s apartments, or go out to dine. We enjoy playing games such as bingo, euchre, 500, pinochle, bridge, Kings in the Corner, golf, and other games of our choice. As alumni of WCSA we enjoy communicating with former WCSA friends and colleagues by email, letters, or through the WCSA AlumNEWS. We welcome visitors anytime; they can join us for a meal or activity. I welcome visitors from my hometowns of Clinton; Ortonville; Odessa;
Starbuck; Watertown; Mesa, Arizona; or elsewhere. Soon I will be entertaining Red Hatters from Starbuck. My family is very loyal to me; you may recall I have four children, nine grandchildren, and little greatgrandchildren—Karsynn, 2 years 9 months; Beckett, 1 year 9 months (Beckett has a new baby in his family); and Hudson, 7 months; and another family will have a baby in January. I am really excited about these coming babies. These great-grands are so precious to me and live near. Kristi lives in Litchfield and is my constant help. Steve lives in Esko, Scott lives in Eden Prairie, and Michael lives in Portland, Oregon. All four with their spouses were in Minnesota for a family reunion at Lutsen Resort. All are so good to me. My stepfamily is also very good to me. My apartment is comfortable and big enough for me. Come see me. I send WCSA love your way.” Jeanne Hahn Swartz ’48, Rosholt, South Dakota, is beginning her 34th year of teaching at the Circle of Nations, an inter-tribal off-reservation boarding school for Native American students from across the United States. Jeanne has been teaching and involved in education for more than 60 years since she graduated from WCSA.

WCSA Alumni Garden Planting
The board president pitches in! Tom Payne ’60, above, can plant a snapdragon with the best of ’em.
Located in front of the education building, the WCSA Alumni Garden is a gift to the Morris campus from the WCSA Alumni Association. The garden surrounds a memorial to WCSA students and alumni who served in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Each spring alumni return to help current students plant flowers there. 8
Rick Storck ’55, Rockford, writes: “It was great to see some of my classmates at this year’s reunion. As I get older I think I cherish seeing and visiting with everyone more each year. I guess it is realizing that our years are numbered that makes us enjoy each one more. We will be in Arizona again this winter, January through March, so if you get down there give us a call. We always like company and would like to visit. We do have an extra bedroom if you would like to stay a day or two.” Neala Geistfeld Gunderson ’60, Hot Springs Village, Arizona, writes: “A brief hello and update to the Class of ’60 + other friends. This was the summer for a six-week RV trip to Minnesota, including a Habitat Build in Bemidji. Enjoyed parking on Lobster Lake. It was fun connecting with long-ago faces at the allschool reunion. It was like making new friends and re-established the fact Lu is a great playmate! After two weeks of farm parking at nephew’s farm at Wood Lake, home we went to Arkansas. We enjoyed international travel to Croatia on a shoreline cruise on the Adriatic Sea. On August 27 we flew to Spain/Portugal for a two-week tour that included a day in Morocco. Come October we look forward to classmate Angie Meierding ’60 and hubby Joe making a house visit. Remember, we are between Hot Springs and Little Rock. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. PS: Three grandkids in college, and a 2016 graduate from Wellesley. Life is changing! Angie Meierding ’60, Cape Coral, Florida, writes: “Hello, Class of 1960, hope you are all well and happy. My husband, Joe, and I sold our home in Minnesota and moved to Cape Coral, Florida, last September. I am in the process of ‘easing’ into retirement. The transfer of my insurance business should be completed by the end of December 2017. We spend about 7–8 months in Florida and the remainder of the year traveling and visiting family and friends in the ‘cooler’ parts of the world. This year that meant San Francisco and wine country earlier this year, flying to Switzerland and France on August 29, and a road trip that will take us from Minnesota to Alberta to visit married granddaughter, Yellowstone, Estes Park, Kansas (to see our grandson’s homecoming football game), next a visit with Neala Geistfeld Gunderson ’60 and Tom in Arkansas and finally
back home to Florida. The fall and winter months bring friends and family to the warmth and sunshine of Florida. We are always so happy to see them come. Wishing you all the very best life has to offer.” Lyle Peterson ’60, Willmar, writes: “Barb and I summer by Eagle Lake, Willmar, where we enjoy spoiling our grandkids. We winter in So. Cal. where we spoil ourselves.”
