As I travel and meet W&J alumni, I am continually impressed by the leaders this College has produced in fields as diverse as pharmacology, civil rights, financial advising, technology, education, insurance, oncology, retail services, restaurants and the ministry. For a small school, one with only 12,000 living alumni (fewer than the number of graduates the University of Michigan produces in one year alone), W&J has a remarkable record. Not only have we been ranked first in the country (per capita) for educating future attorneys and third for educating future physicians and medical researchers, but we also graduate many individuals whose career paths are less familiar. Many of those individuals create or play a significant role in shaping new fields of endeavor. They are true entrepreneurs.

“Creativity and flexibility are crucial for today’s young graduates, since most will change careers–not jobs, but careers–at least nine times throughout the course of their lives.”

In this edition of the magazine, you will learn the stories of several individuals who have pursued unusual careers. You will meet a philosophy major who became an expert on the chemistry needed to improve the performance of athletic shoes. Then, having helped the industry grow, he has led worldwide efforts to reduce its environmental impact. You also will meet a woman who, after a long and successful career in the army, retired as a major and now does research on dolphins and whales. You will learn the amazing story of a young man who moved from the service counter to the board room at McDonald’s and then founded his own bakery and paper companies to supply the fast food industry. These individuals all have helped establish W&J’s prestigious reputation. They exemplify the flexibility of mind and entrepreneurial spirit that are the hallmarks of an outstanding W&J liberal arts education. Creativity and flexibility are crucial for today’s young graduates, since most will change careers—not jobs, but careers—at least nine times throughout the course of their lives. To prepare students not only for their first career, but also for a lifetime of careers, W&J must combine a strong grounding in a major field with the kind of small classes and intense educational encounters that are needed to help students learn how to write clearly, to speak confidently, to read carefully and thoughtfully, to think critically and to solve problems in creative ways. Students with these skills will have no difficulty navigating a landscape of unfamiliar careers. These individuals will break new ground in medicine, help the law to evolve as our society changes, find new ways to stimulate and educate young minds and discover new markets and businesses to explore. They will be exemplary lifelong learners. W&J’s alumni are its legacy. Their lives confirm whether or not the College fulfills its mission “to graduate young men and women of uncommon integrity, competence and maturity . . . who are prepared to make a significant contribution to the world today.” The College’s strong momentum and its growing reputation for excellence are grounded in the lives of all our alumni. Thank you all for helping to make W&J the exciting and highly respected college that it is today.

notedand quoted “If an applicant feels his or her test score is not an accurate reflection of his or her ability, this is an option. It gives an applicant the opportunity to come to campus and shine.” –Robert Adkins, director of admission at W&J, in an article, “SAT or ACT scores now not problem at W&J,” published in the Sept. 26 edition of the Washington (Pa.) Observer-Reporter after W&J announced a new policy that gives applicants the option of reporting ACT and/or SAT scores as part of the application process.

“It’s really such a positive statement to the entire community that others are stepping up to help. If she [W&J President Tori Haring-Smith] didn’t get involved, others would not have joined in.” – Washington (Pa.) Mayor Sonny Spossey in an Oct. 15 Washington (Pa.) Observer-Reporter article titled, “College president leads fire truck drive,” which highlights W&J taking the lead in a campaign to help raise money for a new city fire truck.

Spotlight: No. 13 Thomas More (Ky.) travels to No. 6 Washington & Jefferson (Pa.) for a battle of unbeatens that probably will determine the Division III Presidents’ Athletic Conference championship. The Saints won last year’s meeting 35-29 for their first victory in four tries against W&J to claim the league crown. But the Presidents have not gone two years without winning at least a share of the PAC title since 1982-83. Running might be tough. Thomas More ranks sixth in Division III in rushing defense, with the Presidents just behind in seventh.” – College Football Weekend Preview feature in the Oct. 30 edition of USA Today.

The Washington, Pa., school’s [W&J] Give It Forward Together (GIFT) program provides grants to students whose families have suffered job loss or, because of credit tightening, no longer receive financial assistance.” – Jeff Wuorio in his Oct. 13 column on CBS MoneyWatch.com titled, “14 Colleges With Tuition Bargains.”

“They [students] are following their passions. They are following their dreams.” – W&J President Tori Haring-Smith in a July 23 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, “W&J program lets students write their life curriculum.” The story showcases W&J’s Magellan Project, which provides support for students who wish to pursue interesting projects during their college careers.

“The

first thing I always tell students is

choosing a college begins with self-assessment and reflection.”

– Alton Newell, Vice President for Enrollment at W&J, in an article titled, “Choose the right college, then look at the price,” in the Oct. 13 edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“I think that’s the W&J story. What we give back to the community are young men and women whose lives have been transformed and who have this incredible ripple effect throughout this region.” -W&J President Tori Haring-Smith, when asked to share what W&J means to the community in an interview with The Heinz Endowments for “In the Spotlight,” a special series which featured W&J on its Web site from Nov. 23-Dec. 6.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to exchange valuable information on this worldwide problem. W&J’s project is at the forefront in looking at the care of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) among Reserve Component troops in rural regions. The American experience with combat-related PTSD is not exclusive and this is a great chance for us to exchange information and be a leader in this field.” – Elizabeth Bennett, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at W&J and co-principal investigator for CSIP, in an article titled, “Researchers with Washington & Jefferson College’s Combat Stress Initiative Presenting at International PTSD Conference,” published on collegenews.org Oct. 20.

“At Petside, we know how much the companionship of a pet can benefit a college student, particularly in the form of stress-relief and as a remedy for homesickness. We are pleased to know that so many of America’s colleges are welcoming responsible students and their pets.” – Joshua Fried, Director, Petside.com, which placed W&J No. 3 in its 2009 ranking of pet-friendly schools. The story ran in a variety of media outlets in late August, including Philadelphia Examiner.com and the San Francisco Chronicle. 3

W&J listed by Forbes as one of America’s Best Colleges Washington & Jefferson College is ranked in the top 20 percent (no. 117) among 600 undergraduate institutions in Forbes’ second annual list of America’s Best Colleges. Compiled by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP), the list ranks the institutions based on the quality of the education and the experience of the students and how much they achieve. While some college rankings are based partly on school reputation as evaluated by college administrators and on the amount of money spent, Forbes focuses on what directly concerns incoming students: Will my courses be interesting and rewarding? Will I get a good job after I graduate? Is it likely I will graduate in four years? Will I incur a ton of debt getting my degree? To answer these questions, the staff at CCAP gathered data from a variety of sources, including the rankings on student evaluations of courses and instructors, as recorded on RateMyProfessors.com. Also considered is post-graduate success, which is equally determined by enrollmentadjusted entries in Who’s Who in America, and by a new metric, the average salaries of graduates reported by Payscale.com. The last component is based on the number of students or faculty, adjusted for enrollment, who have won nationally competitive awards like Rhodes Scholarships or Nobel Prizes. “It is quite an honor to achieve such a high ranking on the Forbes’ list,” said W&J President Tori Haring-Smith. “It is a list that is largely based on input from students, which makes it extremely relevant. It is vital that we receive feedback from students and can be measured on how successful we are at what we do.” According to Forbes on its Web site, “there are more than 4,000 college campuses in the United States, and the CCAP ranks only the top 15 percent or so of all undergraduate institutions.”


Washington County honors President Haring-Smith as outstanding woman in business Washington & Jefferson College President Tori Haring-Smith received the 2009 Outstanding Woman in Business Award from the Washington County Chamber of Commerce at its Annual Banquet & Business Exposition in November. Chamber President Jeff Kotula said Haring-Smith was honored “in recognition of her dedication to the community for her ongoing business efforts to increase the county’s quality of life through education.” “It is an honor to be recognized by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce,” Haring-Smith said. “I believe in Washington County and all that this community has to offer. It is critical that W&J, the City of Washington, and Washington County continue to work together to build a strong future for the region.” The annual event is the largest gathering of business leaders in Washington County and one of the largest events of its kind in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Haring-Smith became W&J’s 12th president in January 2005. Under her leadership, the College has grown from 1,200 to 1,500 students, while raising the academic profile of its students and increasing geographic, socio-economic, and ethnic diversity. Haring-Smith has encouraged the growth of the College’s global involvement, increasing the

number of study abroad programs from four to 40 and establishing programs for international students at W&J. She also created the nationally acclaimed Magellan Project, which provides the opportunity for all W&J students to take advantage of challenging independent study/travel opportunities, prestigious internships, or advanced research fellowships.

“I believe in Washington County and all that this community has to offer. It is critical that W&J, the City of Washington, and Washington County continue to work together to build a strong future for the region.” – President Tori Haring-Smith

Haring-Smith oversaw the completion of new residence halls and theme houses in 2005 and, in 2010, she is opening the new state-of-the-art John A. Swanson Science Center, clear evidence of the College’s commitment to sustaining its strong tradition of excellence in the sciences. She continues to lead development efforts to increase

Jeffrey Conn ‘86 recognized by W&J for innovative leadership Jeffrey Conn ‘86, managing partner with Thorp Reed & Armstrong in Pittsburgh, was honored with W&J’s Maurice Cleveland Waltersdorf Award for Innovative Leadership at a November luncheon at the Rivers Club in Pittsburgh. The Maurice Cleveland Waltersdorf Award for Innovative Leadership annually recognizes outstanding alumni of W&J who attain a high level of achievement and exemplify the spirit and leadership qualities manifested by Dr. Maurice C. Waltersdorf, who served as a professor and chairman of the Department of Economics at the College for 32 years. “I am honored to be chosen to receive the Waltersdorf Award,” Conn said. “Throughout my career, I always have placed great value and emphasis on leadership and very much enjoy serving in leadership roles. My experiences at W&J played a significant role in helping me to develop

the leadership skills and work ethic that I have today and I am proud to be an alumnus of W&J.” A 1989 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Conn’s primary areas of practice are commercial and real estate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate and real estate law. He regularly represents lenders, borrowers, real estate developers and small, middle-market and large corporations in a variety of transactional matters and matters involving general corporate advice. At W&J, Conn earned the Benjamin Franklin Prize in Economics in 1986 and was a Dean’s List scholar for seven semesters. He was the men’s basketball team captain, a three-year letterman, and was named the team’s most valuable player in 1986. He was an academic All-American nominee the same year.

“W&J’s project is at the forefront in looking at the care of post-traumatic stress disorder among Reserve Component troops in rural regions.”

-Elizabeth Bennett, Ph.D.

W&J researchers present combat stress initiative in Israel Washington & Jefferson College introduced its Combat Stress Intervention Program (CSIP) to the world in October at a conference in Israel dedicated to preventing and treating post-traumatic stress disorder. The event was hosted by the Institute for Advanced Studies and the Israel Science Foundation. Elizabeth Bennett, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at W&J and co-principal investigator for CSIP, and Mary Schafer, M.A., research associate for CSIP and psychology doctoral candidate at West Virginia University, presented “Identifying and Removing Barriers to Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Among Returning Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom National Guard and Reserve Members in Rural Southwestern Pennsylvania.”

“This was a wonderful opportunity to exchange valuable information on this worldwide problem. W&J’s project is at the forefront in looking at the care of PTSD among Reserve Component troops in rural regions,” Bennett said. “The American experience with combat-related PTSD is not exclusive and this was a great opportunity for us to exchange information and be a leader in this field.” CSIP is engaged with mental health care providers, family members, community members, and returning National Guard and Reserve members to develop a more comprehensive understanding of treatment challenges and how they can be overcome. This multi-method research has involved surveys of returning service members, family focus groups, and physician and emergency room assessments. Through the program, data has been collected from 765 previously deployed members of the National Guard and Reserve from Southwestern Pennsylvania. Forty-three percent of the respondents are older than 40 years of age and the average military experience of the respondents is 15.8 years, breaking the stereotype of 19-year-old troops that was prevalent during the Vietnam War, Bennett said.

A three-year program funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, CSIP is conducting research and developing action plans to address healthcare barriers and provide valuable resources for National Guard and Reserve members returning to Southwestern Pennsylvania. 6

Embarrassment, fear of harming their careers, and apprehension of requiring medication for treatment are among the many reasons troops refuse to seek help. More than 60 percent of the survey group also indicated that believing fellow members of the military experienced problems worse than their own would prevent them from seeking help. “Of the respondents, 43 percent acknowledged that they are currently experiencing stress, emotional, alcohol, drug or family problems to various degrees—28 percent mild, 12 percent moderate, and 3 percent severe. Just under half of them, 45 percent, reported that they either have sought help in the last 12 months or are currently interested in seeking help,” Bennett said.

According to Bennett, the belief that “you should handle problems yourself” has emerged as a critical variable in the open-ended responses of reasons for not seeking treatment and in distinguishing personnel who sought treatment from those who did not seek treatment. She said unique interventions are needed to address this mindset. The objective of the family focus group component of the CSIP, which Bennett and Schafer also addressed at the workshop, is to garner perceptions—opinions, beliefs, knowledge, values, self-efficacy, and attitudes—from the family members and significant others of the identified population of rural veterans. The consensus among the families who attended the focus groups was that combat is a life-changing experience that can impose a psychological burden upon returning service members. The family members and significant others representing veterans discussed the emotional challenge this experience can present not only to veterans, but to those close to veterans as well. “Several researchers we talked to from the Veteran’s Administration and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research were excited about the similarities in our findings, which help to provide validation for the emerging picture of the impact of the current conflict on American service members,” Bennett said. “They also were encouraged about our work with rural National Guard and Reserve members, a population about which we have little data, yet who make up a large percentage of the veterans of the current conflicts. Many of the researchers at the conference were focused on treatment, which is not our primary focus. However, we will be able to use our increased knowledge of evidence-based treatment options to enhance the content of our community intervention materials.” –Robert Reid


Yellow Ribbon campaign helps U.S. veterans pay for college Joining forces with colleges and universities across the country, Washington & Jefferson College is providing U.S. veterans with financial assistance and access to an affordable degree through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Yellow Ribbon G.I. Education Enhancement Program. The program allows institutions of higher learning in the U.S. to voluntarily enter into an agreement with Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate, which, in Pennsylvania, belongs to Pennsylvania State University. The institution can contribute up to 50 percent of those expenses and the VA will match that amount. As part of its involvement with the Yellow Ribbon Program, W&J will provide $10,000 per eligible student a year to an unlimited number of students. Robert Adkins, director of admission at W&J, said the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition. Students’ tuitions and fees may exceed that amount if they are attending a private institution, graduate school, or an out-of-state institution. In this case, the $10,000 from W&J will provide additional assistance to the veteran, generally bridging the “tuition gap.”

All troops who served on active duty after Sept. 11, 2001, may qualify for some or all of the benefits, depending on their length of service. Other troops may be eligible for education benefits such as the Montgomery G.I. Bill and the Reserve Educational Assistance Program. Dependents of qualifying veterans also are eligible for assistance under the Yellow Ribbon Program. “Our veterans are a special population and deserve to have these opportunities. We want these men and women to have access to an education and graduate with as little debt as possible and without student loans,” Adkins said. One unique feature of the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill is the ability of the veterans to transfer all or some of their earned benefits to their children. This could open an opportunity for dependents of local National Guard and Reserve service members who have deployed in the past few years to attend W&J. “W&J is so very proud of our prominent military alumni and we look forward to this opportunity to support the next generation of veterans who walk onto our campus as students,” Adkins said.

G.I. Jobs magazine lists W&J as military-friendly school Washington & Jefferson College is among the schools doing the most to embrace veterans as students according to G.I. Jobs magazine, which names W&J in its 2010 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that share a priority to recruit students with military experience. “This list is especially important now because the recently enacted Post-9/11 GI Bill has given veterans virtually unlimited financial means to go to school,” Rich McCormack, G.I. Jobs publisher, said. “Veterans now can enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified. So schools are clamoring for them like never before. Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated. The Military Friendly Schools list is that trusted friend.” Schools deemed “military friendly” offer additional benefits to student veterans, such as on-campus veterans programs, credit for service and military spouse programs.

In remembrance LTC Stephen Lockridge ’89 of the U.S. Army gives an address on the steps of Old Main at the Veterans Memorial Service in October. “Today we honor and celebrate our military, especially those from Washington & Jefferson College,” he said. “We thank them for our country, we thank them for our freedom, and we thank them for their sacrifice.” Also pictured are LTC (ret) Susan R. Kepler ‘74, member of the Office of Development, and Amanda Hagenbuch ‘10.

Theater festival spotlights original W&J play “Love @ 1st Plight,” an original comedy written by Drew Aloe ’09, was selected to be performed at the Region 2 Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival in January at Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Waller Theatre. Written by Aloe as a senior project at Washington & Jefferson College, “Love @ 1st Plight” premiered at the Olin Fine Arts Center in November, under the direction of T. Scott Frank, associate professor of theatre and communication at W&J. “The Kennedy Center always is looking for new artists, and ‘Love @ 1st Plight’ is the finest undergraduate play I have ever read,” Frank said. “This is the first W&J-student-written production, and the first W&J production of any kind, to be performed at this Festival. It is quite an honor and I could not be prouder of Drew and the cast.”

The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival is a year-round program in eight geographic regions in the United States. In January and February of each year, festivals showcase the finest of each region’s entered productions and offer a variety of activities, including workshops, symposia and regional-level award programs. “W&J has had and continues to have a lot of talented students and a lot of talented playwrights, and Drew is one of those students,” Frank said. “He has a great mind for theater and he is a great actor, too.”

Aloe said he plans on attending graduate school in the near future to study screenwriting. In the meantime, he is excited about the opportunity to showcase “Love @ 1st Plight” to a regional audience. “I was hoping the play was good enough and certainly part of me hoped it would be selected. I am very excited, and was a bit shocked when I found out,” Aloe said. “This is a great opportunity for more people to see the play and will give me some great experience, a great foothold, for the rest of my career.”

Playwright Drew Aloe ’09 (left) poses with the cast and crew of “Love @ 1st Plight,” on the Olin Fine Arts Center stage. The production was selected to be performed at the Region 2 Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival in January.

Scott praised Aloe’s work, noting that the comedy is “very well-written, very well-structured.” “Love @ 1st Plight” is the first full-length play Aloe has written. He describes it as “a romantic comedy about four college students and what might happen if Shakespearian plot devices were imposed on their lives.”

Student volunteers give back to community in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day The spirit of volunteerism was infectious at Washington & Jefferson College in January as students, faculty and staff paid tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. in the most fitting of ways – by giving back to those in need. From Jan. 15-18, the W&J community organized and participated in a number of service projects on and off campus in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Teanca Shepherd, assistant dean of student life and director of diversity programs and multicultural affairs, said the W&J community never disappoints when volunteers are in need.

“I could not be happier about our participation in Martin Luther King Jr. Day activities,” she said. “One student in particular who was painting in a local school would not stop until it was perfect. It is that kind of work ethic, as well as that kind of willingness to become involved and help those in need, that makes me so proud.”

W&J students participated in the following initiatives: • Washington Women’s Shelter: sorted, loaded, and cleaned donations at Washington Crown Center • Habitat for Humanity: assisted a demolition crew in Cokeburg, Pa. • Washington School District: painted hallway of middle school • Washington City Mission: painted and decorated bathroom • American Cancer Society: stuffed envelopes on campus According to mlkday.com, Americans of every age and background celebrate Dr. King through service projects that “strengthen communities, empower individuals, and bridge barriers.” “This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize our volunteers and reflect on the inspirational words of Martin Luther King Jr.,” Shepherd said.


Student blogs offer window into campus life Student blogs received regional attention in December when Washington & Jefferson College was featured as an “In the Spotlight” organization on The Heinz Endowments Web site. The site gives organizations that have received grants from The Heinz Endowments an opportunity to share their stories. A question-and-answer session with W&J President Tori Haring-Smith highlights the feature, as do nearly two dozen personal narratives composed by a class of professional-writing students. Blog topics ranged from athletics to the study abroad program to the newly constructed John A. Swanson Science Center. Join in on the conversation at www.heinz.org/grants_spotlight.aspx.

W&J recognized as third pet-friendliest college in U.S. Take a walk on campus at Washington & Jefferson College and as you might expect, you will see more than a handful of students walking with you. But take a closer look, specifically around Monroe Hall behind the Rossin Campus Center, and you might find a dog enjoying the day as well. For five years, W&J has been allowing students who live in the “Pet House” the privilege of bringing their pets to school. Now, Petside.com, an online source for pet owners and pet enthusiasts, has recognized the policy by ranking W&J number three in its list of the Top 10 Pet-Friendly Colleges. W&J is one of only two schools in Pennsylvania to make the list. “The ‘pet house’ on campus has become increasingly popular and it is a policy that has worked very well,” Steven Anderson, associate dean of student life at W&J, said. “Our students appreciate the opportunity to bring their pets to campus and have shown they are more than able to be responsible for their care. The animals also have been a wonderful addition to campus and we thank Petside.com for recognizing this as well.” W&J’s pet policy allows each resident of Monroe Hall to bring a pet that has been in the family for at least one year and is at least one-and-a-half years of age. Anderson said it is the responsibility of the

pet owner to protect the rights of all students as well as the physical beauty of the campus. Pets that are allowed include cats, dogs (under 40 lbs.), small birds, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and fish. Pets are permitted only in the designated residential “pet house.” Fish are permitted in all residence halls. A wet aquarium shall not exceed 20 gallons. Dogs and cats are not permitted on campus during the summer.

To determine the ranking, Petside.com editors considered the types of pets permitted in university housing (allowing dogs and cats was preferred), types of housing and number of units included. Points also were awarded based on the size of the school, the number of years the school has allowed pets, and considerations made for any required deposits or weight/breed restrictions. 9

Student newspaper staff gains real-world experience

“I covered President Clinton’s visit to the College in 2008. I had to go to the rally, write the story, put the article in layout, and send the pages in only a half an hour. I truly understand the meaning of working under a deadline now.” - Gina Dominick ’10, Red & Black managing editor

I will always remember that once a Red ‘n’ Blacker, always a Red ‘n’ Blacker.

Students studying in the Ski Lodge in the lower level of the Commons may notice a strange thing happens each Wednesday. Starting at about 4:30 p.m., students start trickling through, heading toward and then disappearing down a short hallway. This process starts slowly at first, just a few students at a time, but as it gets closer to 5 p.m., the trickle turns into a flood of students all making their way toward the same room. If any of these students were to be curious enough to follow, they would find themselves heading past the offices of the College radio station, and across from the Pandora yearbook office, they would find the magnet drawing this crowd to be the office of the student newspaper, the Red & Black. Each Wednesday at 5 p.m., these students are called to the office for the weekly staff meeting. About 30 students regularly flood the tiny office at these meetings, sitting on desks, sprawling across the floor, and spilling out into the hallway. Christine D’Auria ’10, this year’s editor-in-chief, opens the meetings by thanking everyone for their work on the previous issue, pointing out the highlights. She then hands the meeting over to Gina Dominick ’10, managing editor, and Taylor Pollier ’10, production manager, to provide the staff with tips on a wide variety of subjects ranging from the correct use of “alumnus” to, “If you start a sentence with ‘But,’ I’m going to kick yours.” Once the staff has been briefed on improving their work, the most essential part of the meeting begins – assignments. Each section editor previously has come up with a list of stories and photographs they would like to include in the next issue. They describe each aloud to the room and keep their fingers crossed that someone will volunteer to take the story. Eventually, each editor assigns enough stories, and the meeting wraps up in a flurry of shuffling papers and shouts from across the room about word counts and potential sources. Throughout the rest of the week, writers are busy getting in touch with sources, doing interviews, attending events and taking pictures. The weekend

means it’s time to write, as the deadline for all stories is Sunday at 9 p.m. Luckily, no one needs to run to the office with their typed-up copies; e-mail makes it easy to submit articles. On Monday, the copy editors read through each story, checking it for clarity and grammatical errors. They then copy the story into the appropriate electronic file, depending on which section it will be running in: news, campus, opinions, arts or sports. “As a copy editor, I like being able to read through most of the articles that run the following week,” Kennan Killeen ’10 said. The files are then ready for the editors to read through on Tuesday – layout day. Instead of actually cutting and pasting articles, everything is done on the computer in Adobe InDesign. The editors can see exactly how their pages will look when printed. Stories simply are copied and pasted into the layout from the electronic files, though editors must do a lot of formatting to make the stories look neat and uniform on the page. D’Auria, who met with previous editors at the Red & Black brunch on Homecoming weekend, received interesting and positive feedback. “A lot of the editors remarked about the layout of the paper. They were shocked by how good it looked; they were really impressed by how professional our publication appeared,” she said. “Several of them told me about the literal, not computerized, copying and pasting of articles they had to do each week. It sounded like a very time-consuming and tedious process. InDesign makes everything so efficient and easy for us. Literally, with the click of the mouse, we can move every item on the page – no glue needed!” Photos, too, are easily pasted into the layout after being cropped, lightened and sometimes turned black-and-white in Adobe Photoshop. Despite the fact that an electronic layout makes the process easier, editors may still take anywhere from five to 10 hours completing their sections.

late or M.I.A. articles, laughing at each other’s jokes and stories, and venting about everything under the sun,” D’Auria said. After a long Tuesday night, the editors are back in the office the next day for the staff meeting, looking forward to the next issue. After this meeting, the pages from the just-completed issue are sent electronically to the Washington Observer-Reporter, which prints the 12-page student newspaper and delivers stacks of hundreds to the Rossin Campus Center early Thursday morning. The distribution editor, Katy Rowley ‘11, then packs the stacks into her car and delivers them to bins throughout campus in time for readers to enjoy with their morning coffee. Despite the fact that the process has changed drastically throughout the years, the motivations of those who dedicate their time to the paper remain pretty much the same. D’Auria, Dominick and Killeen all say they were originally drawn to the paper for a chance to write, but stayed for the bonds they made with others on staff. “Many of my closest friends I met through the Red & Black. We’re a huge family,” D’Auria said. And just like the past editors they met at Homecoming, the current crop of staff members will take the memories and lessons of the Red & Black on to their new lives after college. “To be honest, I will miss the paper,” said Killeen. “The group of people who dedicate their time to this paper are very special and have an inner drive that is different from most. It is a job that requires going the extra mile on a weekly basis and being proud of it, even if the recognition does not come. The stressful times have shaped us all into people who can take a difficult situation and tackle it without going ballistic. I will miss being part of a little-known publication, but I will always remember that once a Red ‘n’ Blacker, always a Red ‘n’ Blacker.” - Breanna Smith ‘11, Red & Black news editor

In 2010, the Red & Black staff submits articles via e-mail to make weekly deadlines and designs each issue using Adobe InDesign software.

In 1962, the Red & Black staff, like W&J, was all male, and composed articles on typewriters before cutting and pasting them into layout.

Early editions report campus history When the first issue of Red & Black was published Thursday, October 28, 1909, the editorial expressed the staff’s hope “that the new publication will make good.” One hundred years later, the newspaper has fulfilled this goal, serving as a valuable source of campus news for students and faculty. With the exception of the years 1917 and 1944, when the paper was combined with other College publications “on account of war conditions necessitating economy,” the Red & Black has been published on a weekly basis. In the fall of 1909, football news appeared on the front page of every edition as the W&J Presidents took on teams from the U.S. Naval Academy, University of Pittsburgh, West Virginia University and Waynesburg College. Among campus news headlines, “Prof. Wells Put the Ban on Tobacco Chewing in Chemistry” stands out. The ongoing debate as to “whether the popular moving picture is detrimental to mankind” was a featured topic at a literary society meeting.

The first Red & Black was issued Oct. 28, 1909. The Oct. 1, 2009, edition of the Red & Black is released at Homecoming, 100 years after its inception.

Many of the early issues showcased advertisements from local businesses catering to students. From free shoe shines to five-cent “moving pictures,” from moderately priced hats starting at $1.50 to chrysanthemums and violets for that special someone, the ads offer an entertaining window into college life a century ago. –Rebecca Keenan

Exploring Their Potential Magellan Project enables students to follow their dreams Dreams became reality for the second year in a row as the Magellan Project helped students pursue opportunities of a lifetime. The project was initiated in 2008 to provide College-based support for students who wish to engage in extraordinary projects during their college careers. “We established the Magellan Project to provide stipends to ensure that any student at W&J would have the opportunity at least once during their college years to have an internship or an independent travel study project that they design themselves,” President Tori Haring-Smith said. The following stories represent a sampling of the students’ unforgettable experiences. Emily Cerrone ’10 traveled to Romania, hoping to gain a significant understanding of the Saxon-fortified churches found in the region of Transylvania. While fortified churches exist in several countries across Europe, they are only seen in large numbers with such preservation in Transylvania. Fortified churches are a combination of both castle and church. “While serving all the purposes of a church, they often include a wall built around the perimeter in order to allow villagers to take refuge during a time of siege,” she said. During the course of four weeks, Cerrone visited the towns and villages that are home to these fortified churches. Nicholas Tyger ’12 arrived in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, with seven other students from the Midwest and East Coast regions of the U.S. A four-hour bus ride to San Juan de la Maguana took him to his destination at the Clínica Cristiana. During his stay, the clinic treated more than 750 sick or injured children and adults. Tyger also had the opportunity to “scrub in” and observe invasive surgeries performed in a typical clinical setting. “This experience was extremely gratifying and at the same time motivational,” he said. “It has given me additional excitement and determination to one day obtain my medical degree and become a practicing physician.” Kaity Ogilvie ’12 completed an internship at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in New York City, where she worked with a team of five financial advisors, including a trustee from W&J. The projects she was involved with at the firm included updating and working with internal software, accounting for discrepancies among particular client accounts, creating a cold-call list of approximately 1,200 Texas-based companies, and performing current and prospective client research.

Gary Flavion ’12 studied the Invasion of Normandy and WWII by visiting museums and battle sites in England and France. During his trip, he had the opportunity to visit The Imperial War Museum, The Royal Naval Museum, The Churchill and Cabinet War Rooms Museum, The Caen Memorial Museum and the D-Day Museum of Portsmouth. Flavion, whose career goal is to be a collegiate military history professor, gained more from his journey than a history lesson. “On top of gaining professional experience by gathering information about these specific sites, I satiated a childhood dream of mine by visiting the actual spot of one the most heroic and daring battles in the history of the world, the Invasion of Normandy,” he said. Marissa Stevens ’10 experienced a two-month stay in Cairo, Egypt, where she studied hieroglyphics at the American University in Cairo with Dr. Miriam Ayad. During her stay in Egypt, she was able to delineate the various parts of Middle Egyptian speech, learn proper hieroglyphic sentence structure, build a basic vocabulary, categorize all uniliteral, biliteral, and triliteral hieroglyphic signs, and differentiate between phonetic glyphs, phonetic complements and determinative signs. “I have more motivation now than ever to become a fluent translator of the ancient language,” she said.

international relations and foreign policy, as well as the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in his future career field. He used his knowledge of the German language and culture to help the State Department succeed in maintaining a productive relationship with the Federal Republic of Germany. Ashleigh Kazmeraski ’10 completed an internship in Washington D.C. with United States Congressman Tim Murphy (PA-18). “The chance to intern on Capitol Hill allowed me to see first-hand the workings of a Congressional office; it truly was a once in a lifetime experience,” she said. Some days would require her to complete simple tasks such as guiding tours of the U.S. Capitol Building or answering constituent calls, while others involved more complex jobs like assisting the Congressman and his staff with projects related to pieces of legislation that were passing through Congress at the time.

Taking Your Own Path “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where

there is no path and leave a trail.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The road to true success is not always a straight one. Often, it is the unexpected twists and turns along the journey that shape one’s career. This is the beauty of a liberal arts education. The breadth of knowledge and diversity of ideas shared in the classrooms at Washington & Jefferson College arm students with the strength of competence and character necessary to take their careers in a number of directions.

In the following pages, you will read the inspiring stories of six individuals who have moved on from W&J to embark upon careers that are non-traditional in nature yet extraordinary in their impact. From footwear to fast food, from wine cellars to sporting arenas, from the top of Capitol Hill to the depths of the ocean, members of the W&J community are discovering their passions in remarkable ways.


Crosbie describes Nike as a “wild place” during its early years. “I went from wearing a tie to work every day to suddenly being able to go to work in torn-up jeans and a sweatshirt or T-shirt,” he said. “It was a young and creative environment – very entrepreneurial at the time.” As the only chemist at Nike with a background in footwear, Crosbie thrived in this environment, addressing and solving the technical and quality problems facing the new company.

emissions into the air, causing damage to the environment and to more than 600,000 factory workers across the globe. This served as motivation for Crosbie, who was not happy with the working conditions at the factories. “I could walk away from the smell in the factories, but the people who worked there could not, and that really bothered me,” he said. Oil prices also were increasing, making the process economically unviable for Nike to continue for the long term.

Features that are common in today’s shoes, such as multi-colored soles, were concepts that Crosbie helped create through experimentation. When he came to Nike, its catalog was a wall poster that offered no more than 15 styles with all-black or all-white outsoles. Under Crosbie’s guidance, the Pegasus was launched as the first shoe with a two-color sole.

In response, Crosbie developed water-based alternatives that reduced the company’s use of inorganic solvents by 90 percent. This translated into an elimination of 1.8 million gallons of oil-based solvents per month and a savings of several million dollars for Nike, plus improved working conditions at the factories.

Three years into his role at Nike, and 14 years into the industry, Crosbie approached a critical crossroads in his career. As an ambitious, hard worker who always aimed for the next step, he felt he had finally “hit a glass ceiling.” He began to re-evaluate his career path and asked himself, “Is this really what I want to do?”

Dick Crosbie, former Chief Chemist at Nike, sports a pair of his favorite brand of shoes on the steps of Old Main during a visit to his alma mater in November.

Paving the way for green footwear Considered the father of the green footwear movement, Dick Crosbie ‘65 is leaving big shoes to fill for future generations striving to advance the environmental efforts of a highly competitive industry built on style, performance and speed. As Chief Chemist at Nike, Crosbie spearheaded a chemical-engineering team charged with setting standards for the quality and design of the company’s athletic shoes. He brought 11 years of footwear experience to the Nike team when he was hired in 1980, just months before the up-and-coming manufacturer went public. Joining the inspirational company of pioneers like Phil Knight, Nike’s founder, Crosbie first reported to Jeff Johnson, the man who conceived the company’s now-household name.

“Suddenly, it dawned on me,” he said. “I loved what I was doing in my job. I enjoyed visiting the factories; I liked working with the people I met and solving problems. So I switched my way of thinking. I decided that I was going to be the best Chief Chemist that Nike ever saw.” As Crosbie’s career at Nike was taking off, so was Nike’s popularity. The signing of NBA rookie Michael Jordan as a spokesperson in 1984, followed by the debut of the Air Revolution shoe in 1985, advertised to the tune of The Beatles’ “Revolution,” skyrocketed Nike to the next level. By 1987, Nike was empowering athletes everywhere with its new slogan, “Just do it.” The slogan, which became synonymous with the Nike brand, also exemplified Crosbie’s approach to his groundbreaking research behind the scenes of the company’s success. Of all his accomplishments, however, what defined his legacy was his tireless work to reduce the environmental impact of the footwear production process. During that time, Nike used petroleum- and oil-based adhesives at its production factories, which were evaporating and releasing harmful

Crosbie ended his 21-year career with Nike in 2001 to return to the basics of what he loved about his job – helping people and solving problems. As president of his own consulting company, Crosbie works with companies like New Balance, Timberland, and Under Armour to improve their production processes and increase their sustainability efforts.

“I decided that I was going to be the best Chief Chemist that Nike ever saw.”

Today, 45 years after graduating from Washington & Jefferson College, Crosbie reflects on an impressive career in the footwear industry that, interestingly, sprouted in his W&J philosophy courses. “Being a philosophy major taught me how to think,” he said. “It taught me to look at problems and question how and why they were solved.” He advises college graduates entering today’s job market “to be open to anything.” He added, “Start somewhere. If it turns out not to be your passion, you always can change your course.” —Megan Monaghan

“I cannot begin to tell you how W&J really prepared me for my career and my life…”

Robert Beavers’ company, Best Harvest Bakeries, supplies sandwich buns to 675 McDonald’s restaurants in the Midwest. Above: Beavers hits the books his freshman year at W&J.

Climbing to the top of the golden arches Robert Beavers ‘65 began his career at McDonald’s nearly 50 years ago when he landed a job as a part-time crew member. The 17-year-old never could have envisioned then that he would rise to become the highest-ranking African American in the McDonald’s Corporation, holding the title of senior vice president and senior management liaison, and making history as the first African American member of McDonald’s Board of Directors. Looking back to the fall of 1961, as a freshman at Washington & Jefferson College, even Beavers admits it was not his career plan. “I took a full-time job at McDonald’s and then was offered a management position,” he said. “I saw promise in the opportunity, and I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish, although it was not at all what I saw myself doing after college. I spent 22 years on the McDonald’s Board of Directors.”

16

Today, he continues his relationship with McDonald’s as principal owner, CEO and chairman of Best Harvest Bakeries in Kansas City, Ks., a soft-roll bakery that supplies both McDonald’s and the U.S. military. Beavers and Edward Honestly Jr. spent a combined 55 years working for McDonald’s prior to forming a partnership with Fresh Start Bakeries. In 1999, Beavers partnered with Fresh Start’s management team and employees to purchase the company’s international bakery organization from Campbell’s Soup. Fresh Start was a premier baked-goods supplier to McDonald’s for more than 30 years when Beavers and Honestly purchased majority ownership in its Kansas City bakery, creating the foundation for Best Harvest. In addition to running the bakery, Beavers is CEO of Beavers Holdings, which oversees a group of companies that serve the fast food industry with a variety of products, such as straws and napkins. It is an interesting path for the Washington, D.C., native who earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from George Washington University after family circumstances and the cancellation of W&J’s engineering program partnership with Carnegie Mellon University led him to return to his hometown to finish his degree.

But Beavers fondly remembers his education at W&J and serves the College today as an active member of W&J’s Board of Trustees. He said that W&J is more than an education—it is an opportunity for young men and women to learn about people and relationships. “My experience and my interactions at W&J were invaluable to me,” Beavers said. “Being at W&J was very special to me. You come across situations in life that arise from time to time and W&J prepared me to overcome those challenges.” He credits Josephine, his wife of 45 years, for first suggesting that he get a job at McDonald’s. They have four grown children, all of whom are involved in various areas of the family business, which Beavers said brings him great pride. His father was a researcher and a doctor; his mother, a teacher and attorney. His mother once told Beavers that she had three goals she wanted to accomplish before she died: to write a book, to fly a plane and to graduate from law school. She earned a pilot’s license in her late 60s and wrote an autobiography shortly before she passed away. And not only did she graduate from law school, she gave the commencement address. She practiced law into her 80s.


With such strong sources of inspiration in his life, it is not surprising that Beavers has succeeded as an entrepreneur in a variety of careers. Perhaps the liberal arts education he initially pursued at W&J provided him with that critical foundation. “I cannot begin to tell you how W&J really prepared me for my career and my life, and helped me face the challenges that I have faced,” he said. “W&J is an experience I share with friends and colleagues. I have been on the W&J board for three years and have seen the success stories.” Under the “golden arches,” Robert Beavers stands as one of those success stories. —Robert Reid

Opening doors of opportunity in the White House After graduating from Washington & Jefferson College, Louise Bell Devanny ‘80 received the same advice from her father that most college graduates receive—it’s time to get a job. However, neither Devanny nor her father had any idea that this job would be personal assistant to First Lady Nancy Reagan. An economics major who always had sought out leadership positions—she was in student government at W&J and a founding member and officer in Delta Gamma sorority—Devanny embarked on the journey of a lifetime as a young college graduate in the nation’s capital. Like many of her peers who were active in campaigns, Devanny phone-banked and handed out bumper stickers promoting Ronald Reagan to become the 40th President of the United States. After Reagan was elected, Devanny began submitting her resume around Washington, D.C. A short time later, she received a phone call asking if she’d be interested in working for the communications department at the White House. This job, in correspondence, was “the best thing that ever happened to” Devanny. It was here where she truly learned what was going on in the White House and what the President’s stances were on national issues; and it was here where the doorway to Mrs. Reagan’s office was opened.

From her beginnings sorting mail, Devanny moved to a position working for the President’s personal photographer when she found out about the opening in the East Wing, working for Mrs. Reagan.

thinking about the sea of people lined up on the streets saluting and waving goodbye to the 40th President.

Extremely humble, Devanny said, “I guess I caught their eye, because the next thing I knew, I got the job working for Mrs. Reagan. Luck was on my side, being in the right place at the right time—and to be honest, I worked my rear-end off.”

“I feel like I was very privileged to get to see and do what I did. There’s no other way to describe it—sometimes I would pinch myself.”

For the next five years, Devanny worked closely with Mrs. Reagan—traveling, implementing official protocol, and promoting important issues. An inspiration to hardworking undergrads, Devanny was different from a lot of the political appointees who worked with her in the White House. “I feel like I was very privileged to get to see and do what I did,” she said. “There’s no other way to describe it—sometimes I would pinch myself. I literally was just there at the right place and time.” Throughout the years, Devanny’s ties to the Reagan family have remained strong. When President Reagan passed away in 2004, she played a fundamental part in arranging the funeral services. She says it was quite amazing—all the people who had worked with and for the Reagans came together, unpaid, to make President Reagan’s send-off a momentous occasion. She rode in the motorcade with Mrs. Reagan, and still gets chills

Now, as a business consultant with a specialization in fundraising, Devanny is applying the skills she honed at the White House to plan events and conferences for various organizations. Today, when she travels to D.C., the politics, passion, and energy she experienced working in the White House “gets right back into her bloodstream.” “I will never, ever have an experience like that again—that was a once-in-a-lifetime job,” she said. “I’m glad I did it when I was young, and during that time period.” —Amanda Bundick ’10 17

“Ten years into the business, and every morning I wake up, I still can’t wait to go to work.”

wine and liquor business established on Madison Avenue into an internationally renowned luxury retailer based in Bridgehampton, N.Y. Building on the long-standing history of the company, which recently celebrated its 75th anniversary, Smydo implemented a business infrastructure designed to take the Sokolin name to the next level. He grew the staff from seven to 50 and helped construct a state-of-the-art storage facility with the technology to manage more than 1 million bottles of wine. As the company increased in size, so did its revenue, which experienced substantial growth under Smydo’s guidance.

David Smydo, CEO of the largest fine wine company in the U.S., selects the perfect bottle of wine for a client dinner.

Uncorking an entrepreneurial spirit Looking for the perfect bottle of chardonnay to celebrate a special occasion, you walk into a local wine store, where you are presented with a variety of options. How do you know which one to choose? Enter David Smydo ‘97, who makes a living pairing wine with people. As CEO of Sokolin, one of the largest fine wine companies in the United States, the 34-year-old entrepreneur is appreciative of a career that allows him to mix business with pleasure. “Ten years into the business, and every morning I wake up, I still can’t wait to go to work,” he said. With a keen business intuition and strong work ethic, Smydo joined the company’s president, David Sokolin, in 2000 to transform the family-owned 18

To deliver these kinds of results, the young CEO, who clocks in seven days a week and 16 hours a day, is not afraid of hard work. “To be entrepreneurial, you need to be willing to roll up your sleeves to get the job done,” he said. “If it was an easy task, anybody would do it. The most rewarding jobs require the most effort.” Yet you will never hear any complaints from Smydo, who admits that working in the wine business has its advantages. “I will tell you that I have one of the greatest jobs in the world,” he added. After all, when you sell the world’s finest, most sought-after wines, it helps to be familiar with your product. Wines for Sokolin’s catalog are determined by a process in which Smydo, along with a panel of 10 experts, tastes several varieties and chooses the wines that are liked unanimously. Smydo is so confident in their selections that his company is the only wine retailer that offers its customers a satisfaction guarantee. What keeps wine enthusiasts coming back to Sokolin is the highly personalized level of what Smydo refers to as “white-glove service.” Each client is assigned a wine consultant who develops a profile based on the client’s entertaining style, hobbies and diet. “This helps us better understand the palate of our clientele,” said Smydo, who attributes his

customers’ loyalty to the valuable relationships formed during these discussions. To further enhance employee-customer relations, Smydo and his team strive to identify with their clients’ affluent lifestyle. “With an average price of $100 per bottle, we primarily deal with the elite,” he said. “To connect on their level, we train our staff to speak fluently on the subjects of private jets and luxury cars. Buying wine is about passion, so that is what we sell.” When the recent recession changed the market demand for fine wine, Smydo diversified Sokolin’s product line by introducing bottles under $100, earning the appreciation of his price-sensitive clients and gaining business from new customers. “We always are looking for ways we can innovate to make us a better, stronger company,” he said. “We look at problems as opportunities to improve.” When asked about his vision for the future of Sokolin, Smydo’s outlook is ambitious. “Our goal is to be the largest fine wine company in the world,” he said. “But it’s not a revenue goal, it’s a quality goal. You get to be the biggest because you’re the best at what you do.” Originally inspired by his entrepreneurial studies course at Washington & Jefferson College, Smydo is driven by the sense of accomplishment that results from defining his own career path. “The most rewarding part of my job is that I was able to grow and build a company and provide an environment in which my staff can thrive,” he said. Yet the Washington, Pa., native who grew up as one of seven children remains modest about his success. “A company is not a one-man show. I am just fortunate enough to be holding the reins.” —Megan Monaghan


Following his (field of) dreams Peter Sullivan ‘79 had a passion for arenas and stadiums that was ignited during his childhood. Growing up in Long Island, N.Y., a short distance from the Nassau County Coliseum, home to the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders in 1972 and the National Basketball Association’s New York Nets, he always dreamed of working behind the arena gates. “I remember that coliseum being fascinating to me,” Sullivan said. “The seed was planted. I remember thinking in ninth or tenth grade that this is what I wanted to do.” Today, Sullivan is living his dream as regional vice president and general manager of the University of Phoenix Stadium. Home to the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals, the facility sports a retractable roof and the only fully retractable natural-grass playing field in North America. Sullivan laid the foundation for his sports management career as a student at Washington & Jefferson College. During a tour of the campus, Sullivan was asked what he wanted to do. “I remember telling a W&J coach during my tour that I wanted to get into working at an arena or stadium,” he said. “I always had thought it was a really unique career—a very exciting career.”

An economics major at W&J, Sullivan was a member of both the swim and soccer teams. Because sports management was a young industry then, his options for continuing his education after W&J were limited. At the time, only the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Ohio University in Athens offered graduate degrees in sports management. Upon graduating from W&J in 1979, he spent two years as assistant director of admission at the College. Then it was off to Amherst, Mass., where Sullivan enrolled in the sports management program with a focus on facilities management. Following graduation from the University of Massachusetts, Sullivan served in an unpaid internship with SMG, a private facility management company. The internship led to a career at SMG, where he worked for more than a decade, helping to build the company’s management agreements from one to 77. The job opened up opportunities for Sullivan to work at facilities throughout the country and the world, including Philadelphia, Jacksonville, Fla., Italy, England, and Pittsburgh, where he worked at Three Rivers Stadium during Head Coach Chuck Noll’s last season with the Steelers. In 2004, Global Spectrum, which manages more than 70 public assembly venues in the United States and Canada, was given charge of a new stadium planned for Glendale, Ariz., and was in need of a person to manage the facility. Sullivan was offered the job.

“It was a very interesting proposition for me,” Sullivan said of the opportunity. “I had the experience and the interest, and I was given the time to put my management team into place in advance to be prepared and ready for the opening. So I packed up the family, and moved to Arizona. It was a great decision.” The building was “sold” to the public on the premise that it was a multi-use, multi-purpose facility. In its first year alone, it hosted 182 separate events, of which only 12 were football games. Because of the uniqueness of the field, the changeover from one event to another, from trade shows, to consumer shows, to sporting events, to concerts, is relatively easy. In fact, after hosting an NFL game and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl within a 24-hour period in January, Sullivan is preparing to host World Wrestling Entertainment’s WrestleMania XXVI in March. Looking back on his career path, which Sullivan forged with passion and determination during a time when sports management was more of a childhood dream than the full-fledged industry it is today, Sullivan graciously credits W&J with preparing him for success. “W&J taught me how to think critically. It gave me a focus on how to learn and how to question,” Sullivan said. “W&J prepared me. It is the epitome of a liberal arts education.” ­—Robert Reid

“I remember telling a W&J coach during my tour that I wanted to get into working at an arena or stadium. I always had thought it was a really unique career—a very exciting career.”

The University of Phoenix stadium is the only facility in North America that sports a fully retractable natural-grass playing field. Inset: Peter Sullivan, who dreamed of working behind stadium gates while he was growing up, is general manager of the University of Phoenix stadium, which hosts the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.

“I have had the opportunity to swim with and film humpback whales and dolphins in the open ocean. Wow, what a dream come true.”

From the W&J swimming pool, where she competed on the College’s first women’s swim team, to the open ocean, where she has filmed humpback whales and dolphins, Joyce O’Neal always has loved the water. She is pictured here on a kayak with her dog, Kiwi, near her home in Delaware.

Taking the plunge with a new career The decision for Joyce O’Neal ‘74 to attend Washington & Jefferson College might seem expected, with multiple alumni in her family and a mother who grew up on East Beau Street, barely a minute off campus—until noting the extenuating circumstances: before her first year in 1970, no female ever had attended W&J. When O’Neal’s mom heard that the college was becoming co-ed, she immediately completed an application for her daughter, without asking her permission. After O’Neal was accepted, she chose to attend W&J because, after graduating from a large high school, she desired to experience a small, close-knit community. O’Neal did not settle for being one of W&J’s first female students, an honor in itself, but also joined the first women’s swim team. Though the team was small, its members’ enthusiasm and spirit placed the experience among O’Neal’s fondest college memories. Interestingly, her love for the sport was integrated into her eventual military career. When stationed in Germany in 1979, O’Neal competed in the European Championships where she was named the top female swimmer.

At W&J, O’Neal majored in sociology and psychology simply because she enjoyed the subjects and, like many students, did not know where her degrees would take her after graduation. “I didn’t even think about it,” she said. Her time at school flew by, and she recalls a conversation with her roommate in which it suddenly dawned on both of them that they had no future plans. Her roommate’s dad suggested talking with a military recruiter and exploring what job opportunities existed in that field.

earned no salary but did everything she could to promote its goals.

Because the army offered a salary, a job, and a temporary plan, the opportunity seemed perfect to O’Neal. She did not expect her “temporary plan” to lead to a career in the military that would last 20 years. After retiring as a major, O’Neal’s life took another turn when she discovered the Ocean Mammal Institute, a small non-profit organization dedicated to protecting marine mammals through research, legislation, and public awareness. “It’s founded on the belief that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world,” she said.

As a student at W&J, O’Neal never could have predicted how her life and career would turn out. Yet she accepts that the unexpected twists and turns have shaped who she is today. “Just because something comes to me differently than I expect does not mean that I won’t enjoy it or that it won’t lead me to exactly what I am looking for,” she said.

Intrigued, O’Neal dialed the number on the organization’s brochure and spoke with the President of the Ocean Mammal Institute. “I called thinking I was talking to the organization’s president and founder in an elaborate office setting, only to find out she works from her kitchen table,” she said. When she joined the group in 1998, O’Neal

Now as Chief Operations Manager, O’Neal enjoys working with experts on whale and dolphin research and marine mammal legislation. She admits that the job is just as fun and rewarding as she imagined. “I have had the opportunity to swim with and film humpback whales and dolphins in the open ocean,” she said. “Wow, what a dream come true.”

For O’Neal, her passion for her job makes her work worthwhile. She encourages others to pursue careers they love as well. She explains, “If a career resonates with you, that is what’s important.” —Georgia Schumacher ’10

Washington & Jefferson wrapped up its 26th consecutive winning season this past fall after posting a 9-2 record. The Presidents earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs for the sixth consecutive year. W&J joins Mount Union (Ohio) and Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) as the only schools to appear in the last six NCAA playoffs; however, the Presidents dropped a first-round game at Mount Union. Senior defensive end Jacob Bloomhuff spearheaded a defense which ranked in the top 10 nationally throughout the season. Bloomhuff, an AFCA All-American, had 14.5 sacks, the most by a W&J defender since Stephan Swentkowsky in 1988. Senior wide receiver Craig Besong also finished his career as the third-ranked receiver in school history with 184 receptions. He had 90 catches (second-best, single-season total) for 1,064 yards and nine touchdowns in 2009. Senior Mitch Erdely became the school’s 25th Academic All-American following the season.

W&J successfully defended its Presidents’ Athletic Conference Championship after recording road conference tournament victories over Thomas More (2-1, 2 OT) and Grove City (1-0). W&J never had won a PAC Championship prior to last season. The Presidents finished with a 12-7-2 overall record after falling in the NCAA first round at Calvin (Mich.). Senior Spencer Ahrenholtz capped a great career by being named an Academic All-American by ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA. The Second Team All-Region choice compiled 23 goals and 10 assists in 86 career matches. W&J has won 36 matches under third-year Head Coach Pete Curtis. The 36 victories are the most over a three-year span in school history.

The Presidents’ men’s soccer team enjoyed its eighth winning season in the past nine years this fall with a 12-7-1 overall record. W&J advanced to the PAC Championship Match for the third-straight year, but dropped a 1-0 decision to Thomas More. The Presidents, who held a seven-match winning streak during the middle portion of their schedule, were led by senior Dan Hart’s seven goals and eight assists. Junior Mike Pappas had one of the top single-season goal-scoring totals in school history with 10 goals. Juniors Sean Maddock (1st team) and Stephen Bosak (3rd team) were both selected to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team.

The 2009 PAC Women’s Soccer champions defend their title.

Men’s Water Polo Senior All-America defensive end Jacob Bloomhuff completed 14.5 sacks, the most by a W&J defender.

Volleyball The volleyball program finished its fifth-straight year with a .500 or better record after collecting a 16-16 overall mark. The squad advanced to the PAC Tournament Semifinals before being ousted by host Thomas More. Junior Courtney Sherwin (1st team) and senior Monika Linden (2nd team) were honored by the conference. Sherwin notched 1.48 blocks per set to finish second in the nation. Linden wrapped up her career as a three-time all-conference honoree. She had 873 kills in 106 career matches.

Women’s Tennis Katie Tetzlaw took over as the head women’s tennis coach this fall and helped W&J to a pair of victories. Sophomore Carrie Campbell earned the Presidents’ best individual record with a 7-3 overall mark, including a 4-1 record against Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) competitors.

W&J hosted the Division III Eastern Championships in October and finished as the tournament’s runner-up. Johns Hopkins won its 12th CWPA Division III Eastern title. The Presidents notched a 10-12 record and were led by a pair of seniors. Steve Hilty tied for 32nd nationally with 51 goals, while John Todd ranked 16th among NCAA goaltenders with 219 saves. Todd’s average of 10.95 stops per match was the sixth-best total among all NCAA divisions. Following the season, Head Coach Vaughan Smith announced his resignation. He was replaced by Greg Jones, a 2007 graduate of Ohio University and former head water polo coach at Salem International University.

Senior forward Dan Hart wrapped up his W&J career with 17 goals and 13 assists for 47 points.

Field Hockey The W&J field hockey team, which competes in the New York-based Empire 8 Conference, continued its winning ways in 2009. The Presidents finished with eight victories and advanced to their third consecutive Empire 8 Tournament Championship Match; however, Stevens defeated W&J by a 3-1 margin in New Jersey for the second-straight year. The Ducks earned the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA playoffs. W&J was led by junior Kolbey Seidel, who became the second player in school history to earn All-Region laurels from the NFHCA. Seidel had one goal and eight assists while making a pair of defensive saves.

Cross Country Freshman Scott Ryan was the story for the W&J cross country teams this fall as he earned fourth place at the Presidents’ Athletic Conference championships with an 8K time of 27:49. Ryan was named the conference runner of the week three times during the regular season. The women’s team was paced by junior Laura Procario, who grabbed 21st place at the league championship meet.

Junior midfielder Julianne Zackey collected a team-high 19 points for W&J field hockey. 21

Washington & Jefferson College honored five alumni who have distinguished themselves on and off the playing fields during the Athletic Hall of Fame ceremony in October. The 2009 class of inductees are: Tom Coughlin ’91 (Swimming), Jack McElravey ’54 (Track and Field), James Pareso ’66 (Wrestling), Ryan Silvis ’01 (Football and Track & Field) and Kelley (Wiltz) Williams ’97 (Volleyball) “The W&J Athletic Hall of Fame honors the best and brightest student-athletes and this year’s class is no different,” Director of Athletics Bill Dukett said. “We are proud of what these tremendous W&J alumni did during their time as student-athletes and we are even prouder of their career accomplishments.” In addition, W&J honored four seniors from the previous academic year with the prestigious E. Ronald Salvitti, M.D. Senior Scholar-Athlete and Walter C. Cooper Senior Athlete Awards. Matthew Houy (Football) and Valerie Schultz (Softball) accepted the Salvitti awards, while Bobby Swallow (Football) and Summer (Baumgard) Spencer (Volleyball and Track & Field) were selected as the Cooper award winners. Tom Coughlin ’91 Coughlin remains as one of the top male swimmers in the history of W&J. Coughlin won 11 Presidents’ Athletic Conference individual or relay championships during his career and set 12 W&J school records. Coughlin also set a pair of conference records and was named the 1991 Presidents’ Swimmer of the Year. During his senior year, Coughlin claimed first place in the 100 (47.54) and 200 (1:46.05) freestyle events at the PAC Championships. The 100 freestyle title was his third straight at the conference championships. Coughlin set school records during his hall of fame career in the 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, 200 freestyle, 200 freestyle relay, 400 freestyle relay and 200 medley relay. A business administration major, Coughlin ranked among the Top 25 swimmers in NCAA Division III in three events (50, 100 and 200 freestyles) during the 1991 season. He also swam legs on five different relays which posted Top 30 times nationally. Coughlin was a member of Kappa Sigma during his years at W&J.

Jack McElravey ’54 McElravey concluded his career as one of the most decorated track-and-field athletes in school history, setting numerous track-and-field records throughout the East Coast during his four years at W&J. He earned school records in the 100 yards (9.7) and the 220 yards (21.40). His 100-yard time broke the record formerly held by W&J Hall of Famer “Deacon” Dan Towler by two-tenths of a second. Throughout his career, McElravey was defeated in both races only one time. A native of Connellsville, Pa., and a graduate of Shady Side Academy, McElravey was a three-time All-District choice and was awarded the Guy Halferty Memorial Trophy, an award which was given to the best 100-yard sprinter at the Tri-State Championship Meet. The Tri-State Meet was hosted by Carnegie Tech and was considered one of the top tournaments in the nation. McElravey majored in economics at W&J and was senior class president. He also was a member of Phi Gamma Delta, the Lettermen’s Club, the Pandora yearbook, and the Athletic Club. James Pareso ’66 Pareso lettered four years for the W&J wrestling program. He held a career record of 44-7-4 and is one of only 21 wrestlers in school history to win multiple conference championships. Pareso won PAC crowns in both 1964 and 1965. Following the 1965 season, Pareso was selected as the PAC Wrestler of the Year, becoming the first W&J wrestler to earn the prestigious honor. Since Pareso, only 11 other W&J wrestlers have been named the most valuable wrestler at the conference meet. Pareso also helped the Presidents win PAC Team Championships in 1965 and 1966, two of the five titles in school history. As a freshman, Pareso posted a 9-1-2 record at 137 pounds. He captured the 147-pound conference championship as a sophomore and finished the year with a 12-1-2 overall record. Pareso notched his second-straight PAC Championship as a junior after collecting a 12-3 record. He led W&J to back-to-back league championships as a senior with an 11-2 overall record. Before graduation, Pareso became one of W&J’s first NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship award winners. Pareso majored in pre-med at W&J and has served as one of the top doctors in Washington, Pa. He was a member of Phi Kappa Psi and the Lettermen’s Club.

Ryan Silvis ’01 Silvis finished his career as one of the most dynamic wide receivers in W&J football history. He is fifth in school history with 171 receptions and is the all-time leader with 3,155 receiving yards. Silvis graduated with nearly every W&J receiving record. In 2000, he established a single-season record which still stands today with 20 touchdown receptions. During that same season, he set a school record for receiving yards per game (139.5). Silvis finished his senior year with 69 receptions for 1,535 yards, an average of 22.2 yards per catch. A two-time First Team All-PAC wide receiver, Silvis was selected to the 2000 D3football. com All-America Team. The Presidents posted a 29-12 overall record with Silvis as a member of the squad. W&J also claimed three Presidents’ Athletic Conference Championships and made two appearances in the NCAA Division III Playoffs. Silvis, an accounting major, also excelled in track and field during the spring season. He was a two-time team captain and a five-time PAC Champion (100 meters, 200 meters (twice), 110-meter high hurdles, 4x100 relay). Kelley (Wiltz) Williams ’97 Williams helped W&J claim its first-ever Presidents’ Athletic Conference Volleyball Championship in 1994. Following that season, she was selected as the PAC Most Valuable Player. A three-time All-PAC choice and a two-time team MVP, Williams guided the Presidents to a pair of conference titles and three ECAC Division III Tournament appearances. After helping W&J notch a 21-11 record in 1993, Williams was named to the PAC Honorable-Mention All-Conference Team. She had a dynamic year as a sophomore, winning the league’s player of the year award and earning First Team All-PAC laurels. W&J won the school’s first PAC title and set the school record for most victories (27). Williams was once again a First Team All-PAC choice in 1995 as W&J reached 27 wins. As a senior, she helped bring back the PAC Championship to W&J and helped the Presidents advance to the ECAC Tournament. During her four years, W&J notched an overall record of 103-39, including a 29-4 mark in conference play. Williams majored in sociology at W&J. —Scott McGuinness

sportstalk W&J celebrates its sixth PAC Championship in College history, and its fourth under Coach Jeff Mountain.

Mountain’s Men Baseball team reaches new heights with Coach Jeff Mountain at helm Washington & Jefferson College first fielded a baseball team in 1890. Nearly 110 years later, the program made a name for itself on the national stage. When Jeff Mountain took over the baseball program seven years ago as the 36th head coach, his goal was to eventually help the Presidents make their first appearance at the NCAA Division III Tournament. Some may have chuckled at that notion, considering the Presidents had won 21 games in four years prior to his arrival. Since then, solid recruiting, a brand-new stadium and some of the region’s top talents have helped W&J baseball reach heights that few ever thought possible. Mountain already has become the baseball program’s all-time win leader (183-114-1). The 2009 Presidents rewrote the record book with a 35-14 overall record and claimed the sixth PAC Baseball Championship in school history. W&J also earned the PAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament and was placed in the South Regional at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Md. 24

“This season was a culmination of everyone who has helped turn this program around the past seven years,” said Mountain. “We have been blessed with many great players who never got to experience what our student-athletes did this past spring at the NCAA Tournament. But, they played a big role in this team’s success. We achieved one of our long-term goals, but we are not satisfied. We will keep working hard.” W&J dropped a 5-3 decision to Christopher Newport (Va.) in the opening round of the double-elimination tournament, but bounced back with its first NCAA Tournament victory a day later, an 8-3 win over Washington and Lee (Va.). Freshman right-handed pitcher David Trushel, who was selected to the regional’s All-Tournament Team, upped his record to 8-0 after limiting the Generals to three hits and one run in eight innings.

The Presidents’ four-member senior class of Sean Boone, Ian Poole, Robert Timo and Dan Vietmeier graduated with the most career victories at 124. Junior pitcher/outfielder Jim Pasquine was selected as PAC Player of the Year and also earned ABCA/ Rawlings First Team All-Region laurels. Pasquine was sixth in the nation in batting average (.481), while adding eight home runs, 58 RBI, 66 runs and 21 stolen bases. Junior catcher Mark Thomchick (11 HR, 41 RBI) also was named to the region’s Gold Glove Team. Mountain, the 2009 ECAC Division III South Coach of the Year, has led the Presidents to four conference titles. He is hoping the 2010 season will be just as memorable, as all eight position starters are returning from last year’s record-breaking unit as well as six of the squad’s top eight pitchers. –Scott McGuinness

W&J eliminated York (Pa.) by a score of 4-1 behind home runs from juniors Mike Kennedy and Neil Pascarella, but the regional run ended later that evening after a 10-2 loss to Johns Hopkins.


“We achieved one of our long-term goals, but we are not satisfied. We will keep working hard.� -W&J Baseball Head Coach Jeff Mountain

Alumni honored for service and achievement

Four distinguished individuals were honored by President Tori Haring-Smith during the Alumni Dinner at Homecoming 2009. Pictured from left to right: Andrew Tabler, Sally Keen, Haring-Smith, Bill Keen, Barbara Koach Robinson Dewitt.

Homecoming is more than a time of reflection – it is a time of celebration that honors the remarkable progress occurring at W&J. To acknowledge the alumni and friends of the College who make this kind of progress possible, W&J bestows three important awards each year at Homecoming. The Distinguished Service Award, the Alumni Achievement Award, and the Outstanding Young Alumni Award recognize those who show particular loyalty to the College and those who have achieved notable success in their chosen fields. Distinguished Service Award Bill and Sally Keen

Alumni Achievement Award Barbara Koach Robinson Dewitt ’74

Outstanding Young Alumni Award Andrew Tabler ’94

With a passion for learning, Bill and Sally Keen have given back to W&J in countless ways. Bill, who started his career at the College in 1966, served as a professor in the English department for more than 30 years, while Sally, in her role as a faculty spouse, immersed herself in the W&J community.

A 1974 Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa graduate, Barbara Koach Robinson Dewitt joined Mellon Bank the same year she earned her degree from W&J.

A writer, world traveler, analyst and entrepreneur, Andrew Tabler is a perfect example of a life-long liberal arts student.

As a professor of English, Bill is remembered most for walking into the Chaucer seminar and, with a booming voice, reciting an excerpt from the Canterbury Tales in perfect Middle English. He led the Freshman English program, helped develop Freshman Forum, chaired the curriculum committee, administered a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and served as a fraternity faculty advisor. A member of the W&J Auxiliary, Sally served on the Auxiliary’s Intersession Scholarship Committee, collected and sold used books for the Auxiliary Fair, and organized a Renaissance Semester Dinner festival. Accompanying Bill on Intersession trips abroad, Sally helped plan the itinerary, advised students in transit, and held the hands of nervous first-time travelers. Bill and Sally continue to host former students in their home for conversation and good company. At Homecoming 2008, Bill and Sally organized and hosted a memorial gathering for friend and emeritus professor, Hugh Taylor. They also created the Edit Keen Poetry Fund at W&J, memorializing Bill’s mother, and are active in fundraising efforts for the College library.

During the past 35 years, she has climbed the ranks of Mellon Bank, now BNY Mellon Corporation, serving as investment analyst, investment officer for charitable trusts, and vice president for administration of charitable trusts. Now, in her role as first vice president and managing director of the endowment and foundation section of BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Dewitt oversees the administration of $3.5 billion in charitable assets. She is a consultant to bank executives, employees, clients and community members on the technical management of private foundations, community foundations, endowments, and planned giving programs. Dewitt has established a national reputation as an expert on the many facets of creating and managing charitable assets. Dewitt believes education is the foundation to success. She is a board member of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation, which supports educational institutions and initiatives, the Massey Charitable Trust, and a past member of the Heinz Endowment Board of Directors. Fulfilling her ninth year of service on W&J’s Board of Trustees, Dewitt chairs the Enrollment Committee and is a member of the Investment Committee. She has been instrumental in strengthening W&J’s visibility within regional foundations, as well as advising the College on financial matters.

Serving as a Soref Fellow in the program on Arab Politics at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Tabler focuses on how to engage Syria in a way that best advances U.S. interests. During his 14 years of residence in the Middle East, Tabler worked in Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Tunisia, and the Palestinian territories. He ended his time in the Middle East with a two-year fellowship from the Institute of Current World Affairs in 2005-2007 and consultancy with the International Crisis Group in 2008. Tabler has held editorships with the Middle East Times, the Cairo Times, and the Oxford Business Group, where he held roles as senior editor, director of editorial, and partner. He then co-founded and served as editor-in-chief of Syria Today, Syria’s first private-sector English-language magazine. His journalistic merits include interviews with Syrian First Lady Asma al-Assad, Israeli President Shimon Peres, the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, the late Lebanese Premier Rafik al-Hariri, and Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora. His articles and opinion pieces have run in The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine and Foreign Policy, and he has appeared in interviews with CNN, NBC, PBS and NPR. He is the author of the forthcoming book In the Lion’s Den: Inside America’s Cold War with Assad of Syria.

Class of 1959 celebrates 50th reunion The W&J Old Guard gained new inductees when the Class of 1959 marked 50 years of serving as proud alumni of the College. To commemorate this important milestone, 46 classmates and their guests gathered on campus in May 2009 to reminisce about their days at W&J and see firsthand the changes occurring on campus. They were warmly welcomed with a weekend of tours, dinners, receptions and W&J camaraderie.

Upon their official induction into the Old Guard at the commencement ceremony, the class members led the crowd in a hearty “Whichi Coax” cheer. In honor of their reunion, the class members raised $938,690 in gifts and pledges in support of W&J. A portion of these funds established two endowed scholarships in the name of the Class of 1959, leaving a lasting legacy from one of the College’s finest class of alumni.


Then& Now

One is a respected sales leader in the manufacturing and technology industry, and the other is an ambitious student preparing to break into the medical field. While Amy Mercante and Nathan Graf are separated by nearly 20 class years at W&J, they are connected by a passion for the sciences and a deep appreciation for their alma mater.

Major/minor at W&J:

Favorite class at W&J:

Amy: Mathematics and chemistry

Amy: My favorite course had nothing to do with my major; it was the Intersession course I attended in London with Richard Easton studying art and theater. I would strongly encourage students to take advantage of the opportunity to travel and gain insight into another culture.

Nathan: Chemistry and Spanish double major with a business administration minor in the prehealth program.

College activities: Amy: I was a sister of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, participated in the student affiliates chapter of the American Chemical Society, and served on the staff for the Pandora yearbook.

Amy Mercante ’91 When Amy was a senior at W&J, she received a promising job offer from PPG. Now, 20 years later, Amy has grown as a leader within the company, holding a national sales manager position that oversees new residential and multi-family products at PPG.

Nathan: I am involved in the J-Walker college ambassadors, Alpha Phi Omega, student government, the student affiliates chapter of the American Chemical Society, and my fraternity, Delta Tau Delta. In addition, I spent two semesters abroad in Ecuador and the Netherlands, and received funding from W&J’s Magellan Project to bring donated medical equipment to remote communities in Ecuador and work as an interpreter in Guatemala for patients receiving free operations from a group of American surgeons.

Why I attended W&J: Amy: I liked the size of the school, which allowed for a great student/teacher ratio, and was impressed with the reputation of its academic program. It’s great to find such a quality school in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Nathan Graf ’10 With plans to attend medical school after graduating from W&J, Nathan was most inspired by the summer abroad he spent in Ecuador and Guatemala, where he donated medical equipment and served as an interpreter for patients.

Nathan One reason I chose W&J was the great reception I received from the Office of Admission. I remember walking into Rossin Campus Center on my second visit when two admission counselors yelled out my name and asked how I was doing. These counselors see many prospective students, but they remembered who I was after my first visit.

The best thing about W&J: Amy: A top-notch education. Nathan: The faculty, without a doubt. They devote their time to undergraduate students to ensure their success both in and out of the classroom.

Favorite college memory: Amy: Carnival weekends. Nathan: Greek Olympics.

Nathan: Calculus II my freshman year with Dr. Kline.

Most influential professor: Amy: Many professors guided me during my studies at W&J, but Dr. Patricia Brletic stands out. Her commitment to her work and to her students is commendable. She always was willing to spend time with students if they needed additional support. Nathan: Both of my advisors, Dr. Patricia Brletic and Dr. John Mark Scott. Without these professors, I would not be in the position I am today.

How W&J prepared me for my career: Amy: The liberal arts education at W&J prepared me with a foundation of learning principles that can be applied to any field. Also, the broad array of course requirements introduced me to business basics. Nathan: W&J’s superb academics have given me the knowledge necessary to be successful in both medical school and later in life as a practicing physician. My science background will serve as an important foundation to my medical future, while my Spanish studies will allow me to treat the growing Hispanic population.

My advice for the freshman class: Amy: I encourage each and every one of them to develop a plan, focus on their work, accept that change will occur and take risks. Don’t forget to have fun and make memories; these just may be the best years of your life. Nathan: To get involved and do things outside the classroom that will make them stand out from the crowd. Whether the step after W&J is grad school or employment, the person or committee reviewing the student’s application will be looking for creative and motivated individuals who can take initiative. If they set their sights high and work hard, they will be rewarded.

Intersession

From “The Poetics and History of Hip Hop” to “The Chemistry and Culture of Perfume,” Intersession 2010 introduced students to intriguing discussions and life-changing travels. Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Intersession has provided W&J students with memorable learning opportunities. To learn about your favorite Intersession experience, W&J magazine conducted a poll on the Washington & Jefferson College Facebook page. Read on to see if you recognize your fellow classmates’ stories.

“Definitely the trip to Russia my senior year with Dr. Dodge and Dr. Scott. Those three weeks were amazing – the history, the culture, the metro, the fun! I still can understand Russian much better than I can speak the language.” -Christie Rapacik Silvestri ’90

“During Intersession 2006, I took ‘The Cultural History of The Beatles’ with

Professor Cameron. It was interesting to learn about the band’s impact on not just music, but our world. Professor Cameron’s enthusiasm for the band made the class a lot of fun, too.” -Michael Reddy ’08

“China 1989. I recall Dr. Dodge, who was an avid runner, being briefly detained by Chinese authorities in Shanghai when his morning jog brought him too close to a government building. I also have memories of Japanese tourists on a cruise and somehow breaking out into the W&J alma mater song.”

“Intersession 1973, ‘Art & Architecture of Greece and Turkey’ with Hugh Taylor. It was an amazing trip and an amazing time to be in both places. You could still actually walk on the Parthenon and touch it. Turkey was still a bit scary, especially for a woman. Although, it was not a whole lot scarier for a woman than the W&J campus at that point.” - Betsey Hurwitz-Schwab ’74, member of the first graduating class of women

“Neurophysiology with Professor Dennis Trelka. I’ve never felt quite the same about cockroaches since.” -Phil Branton ’83

-Jen Dorris ’92

“My sophomore year trip to Cuernavaca, Mexico, with Dr. Belsie. My second favorite course was Paul Quinn’s ‘Infant Perception Lab,’ which got me into the field I’m in now.” -Erin Kennedy ’98

“My senior year trip to Kenya with Dr. Stan Myers. He organized some psych students to study the effects of the environment on people while the rest of us tagged along with Dr. Lawrence and his animal behavior class.” -Justine Gunvalsen ’00 33

A Message from the Alumni Executive Council Greetings W&J Alumni: Alumni play an integral part in the Washington & Jefferson College community, and for that reason, I am honored to serve as your Alumni Executive Council (AEC) president. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about the Council and its priorities. The AEC is essentially the management arm of the W&J Alumni Association, to which all alumni belong. AEC members, who serve four-year terms, are nominated by fellow alumni, by faculty and staff, or by self-nominations. Working with the Office of Alumni Relations, our 22 members advocate alumni interests and implement priorities for alumni communications, programming and services. Through committees, the AEC works to accomplish three primary objectives: connecting alumni to W&J, connecting alumni to one another, and connecting alumni to students. The Programming Committee, under the leadership of Andy McIlvaine ’70, assists the College in establishing additional alumni-student programming opportunities. Of particular interest to the AEC is an alumni-student mentor program, which is now in the pilot stage. The program matches

Library Auditorium Dedicated to Celebrated University Leader A new auditorium in the renovated and expanded library at Southern Illinois University Carbondale now bears the name of longtime SIUC administrator John C. Guyon, Ph. D. ’53. The chancellor emeritus is praised by colleagues for his leadership and contributions to the University. As chancellor, Guyon led the University through a number of changes and improvements until his retirement in 1996. During his 30-year career at SIUC, he served the University in multiple roles, including first permanent dean of the College of Science, associate vice president for research, dean of the graduate school, and vice president of academic affairs and research. “John Guyon brought knowledge and commitment to his roles on campus as a dean, associate vice president, and as our second-longest-serving chief administrator,” SIUC Chancellor Samuel Goldman said. “It is appropriate that we honor his dedication to SIUC and to this region.” Under Guyon’s leadership, SIUC became the first American university to offer an off-campus program in Japan in 1988. A year later, officials dedicated a $7 million campus in Nakajo, Japan. He also launched a distance-learning initiative allowing students in the healthcare field to attend classes via interactive video with the region’s community colleges. In addition, Guyon set forth a minority recruitment and advancement plan and helped launch the Black Alumni Group, the Black American Studies program, and the University Women’s Professional Advancement organization. 20

A chemist, Guyon graduated magna cum laude from W&J and was honored with the Jesse W. Lazear Prize in Chemistry. Today, his passion for science education is carried out through the John C. Guyon Scholarship at SIUC, which provides financial assistance each year to a freshman student pursuing a career in science.

He is very willing to share his knowledge with others. And he loves to teach students, residents, fellows and other physicians.” Weinstein also was named “Teacher of the Year” in 2007 by UT Southwestern Medical School and was listed as one of the “Best Doctors in America” from 2001-2007.

Bush to celebrate his 85th birthday. Mandel, senior medical officer on the ship, writes, “I believe this was the first time in U.S. Navy history that a ship’s namesake (certainly an aircraft carrier) not only was alive at the time of commissioning, but was healthy enough to come on board when the ship was at sea.” An avid historian, Mandel also has published a historical fiction novel, Moryak: A Novel of the Russian Revolution. The book tells the story of Lieutenant Stephen Morrison, an American sent into Russia to remove the Tsar from power at the turn of the 20th century. One customer reviewer on Amazon.com, “Mandel has the keen ability to keep the action and suspense moving page after page—a rare feat in historical fiction. Historically accurate and fascinating, Mandel’s done his research well to make Moryak a compelling story. If you love the history of the Tsars, Russia, WWI, Teddy Roosevelt and Naval history, this is a must-read.” Mandel is board-certified in internal medicine and aviation medicine. During his naval career, he worked at four Navy hospitals and served twice as a staff internist at the Office of the Attending Physician, U.S. Congress. In addition, he served as a senior medical officer on three U.S. Navy aircraft carriers.

Capt. Mandel sits to the right of former President George H.W. Bush (center) in the Flag Mess on board the USS George H.W. Bush.

With a special interest in U.S. Presidential history, he has written and lectured on the health of Franklin D. Roosevelt and has been published in the Annals of Internal Medicine on the health of John F. Kennedy, based on his review of Kennedy’s White House medical records.

Radiologist Recognized for Saving Lives in Pittsburgh and South America

Pittsburgh’s television news magazine, OnQ, featured Marcela Böhm-Vélez, M.D. ’75, as a doctor who is changing lives. As President of Weinstein Imaging Associates in Pittsburgh, the radiologist is highly regarded for staying on the cutting edge of technology in early breast cancer detection. Her office is home to the only camera in Western Pennsylvania that uses breast-specific gamma imaging, a tool that detects fast-growing breast cells, which can point to early signs of breast cancer. Böhm-Vélez also supports screen mammography, which she claims “can decrease mortality by 40 percent.” “In the past 20 years, there have been significant changes in breast imaging because of proactive women who have demanded better quality and better diagnosis and treatment,” she said in an interview with OnQ. “We’re now diagnosing cancer much earlier and smarter than before.” Böhm-Vélez also is praised for her steadfast commitment to her patients. According to a colleague interviewed by OnQ, she is “passionate about her work and takes personal interest in everyone she sees. Her patients know they’re in really good hands when she’s treating them.” Her commitment to her work extends to South America, where Böhm-Vélez is educating doctors and patients about mammography and breast cancer. The

Argentina-born doctor visits countries where cancer detection and survival rates are low and demonstrates the best new techniques and practices in her field. “These doctors are working from 7 in the morning to 8 or 9 at night. They are hungry to learn,” she said. “The key is to educate the doctors so they can, in turn, educate their patients on having mammograms, leading to early cancer diagnosis and increased survival rates.” Böhm-Vélez specializes in mammography and gynecological, obstetrical, interventional and vascular ultrasounds. She has been published multiple times, has organized numerous lectures and seminars, and has been involved in several medical panels and boards. She sits on international committees for the American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of South America. She also is an assistant professor of radiology at the University of Pittsburgh.
