A China Odyssey The best learning experience I enjoyed this summer was the three weeks my wife, Marilyn, and I spent touring the People’s Republic of China. With eight other tourists and a trip leader we visited Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Lhasa (Tibet), Chongqing, the Yangtze River and three Gorges Dam, Wuhan, and Hong Kong. I tell students that learning is a 24/7 activity and it definitely was for us on this exciting trip. Much of the time I found myself observing the Chinese people, their buildings, infrastructure, vehicles and culture.

Perhaps the most striking realization is how rapidly things have changed and how adaptable

the people have been to the pace of change. From the oppressiveness of the Cultural Revolution to today’s remarkable blend of single party governance with capitalism, the transition has been phenomenal. Yet, it is clear. Rapid advancement in one sector of society creates complications elsewhere. The dense smog is a case in point. Regulatory authorities are working on policies to get control of polluting industries and automotive emissions. Two things are certain: First, the Chinese will solve this problem. Already, the electric bicycle is growing in popularity. Second, the Chinese will become the world’s experts in nuclear energy for electricity generation, since that will

Our tour guides were very open to questions concerning the culture and the government,

not nearly as reluctant to speak as I expected. They told stories about living through the Cultural Revolution. Life was drab and uninspiring, and there were food shortages from time to time. While Mao is still revered by the older generation – primarily for providing land to peasant farmers – the younger generation sees him as an out-of-favor national leader during a time that most would rather forget.

As a result of watching too many Indiana Jones movies, I expected to fly to Tibet on a twin

engine propeller airplane, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the flying experience in China even better than flying in the U.S. The airports are largely new and impressive and the airplanes and service are top quality. The same fine service and accommodations were true of our three-

day cruise down the Yangtze River from Chongqing to Wuhan through the Three Gorges and the Three Gorges Dam.

It was surprising to see English along with Chinese characters on most traffic signs. They

seem to be having a difficult time including all the new words and abbreviations invading English, so they sometimes just adopt the English. For example, on the expressway I noticed the letters “ETC” interspersed within Chinese characters. The bus driver said it stood for “electronic ticket check” for the vehicle toll charge.

Lhasa in the province of Tibet was a most fascinating city. It is built in the old style and a

mere village of only half a million people. At an altitude of 12,000 ft (3,700 m), the sparse air requires a little getting used to. I do not imagine a more Buddhist country exists and the people employ prayer wheels, beads, walking around temples and prostrating themselves numerous times on their way to a temple to increase their good karma and provide for a superior future life. The sensitive nature of the China-Tibet relationship was evident in the numerous Chinese military patrols observed throughout Lhasa, but we encountered no problems in our trip to the “rooftop of

the world.”

In the end, we saw many very interesting locations, events and people on our China trip from

the Great Wall to the terra cotta warriors of Xi’an to the pandas of Chengdu to the Three Gorges Dam to the booming island of Hong Kong. It was an enriching journey in so many ways. Marilyn and I are enjoying our chats with students from all over Asia about their travels throughout the

Making Memories:

Extracurricular Activities at Sem “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” goes the old proverb, but that’s a condition few Wyoming Seminary Upper School students need to fear. Sem students do work hard every day in the classroom, but the school’s extensive and diverse extracurricular activities program allows them to play hard as well. In the process, Sem students develop the time management skills, talents and interests, discipline and enthusiasm that enable them to succeed in their colleges and universities, and later still in life. Just ask Iain Flannery ’07, a senior literature and religious studies major at Stonehill College, who credits his involvement with Sem’s theater program, fencing club and the Chorale and Madrigal Singers with teaching him timebudgeting skills and discipline. In addition to serving as a resident assistant and one of Stonehill’s Skyhawk mascots, Flannery works as a teaching assistant for French literature, as a tour guide for the admission office, as an organizer for the college’s annual service trip to New Orleans and as a coordinator for the Civic Ambassador organization which brings in speakers.

Or Hannah Frantz ’09, a sophomore English major at Gettysburg College, who spent a lot of time singing with the Chorale and Madrigals and performing in the orchestra and other ensembles while at Sem. Now she serves as the program coordinator for Big Brothers, Big Sisters in the Center for Public Service. She performs with the college orchestra and chamber ensembles, works in a tutoring program and takes master classes in flute. “Being so involved in music at Sem helped me a lot,” she says. “I learned to be responsible for doing what needs to be done, how to appeal to and work with other people and how to earn their respect. Those skills helped me get the job I have now and put me a step ahead of my peers.” “The value of my experience at Sem became apparent in the first weeks of my freshman year. I felt very comfortable in college because I had the discipline to maximize my time and to choose what I wanted to do,” says Flannery. Extra-curricular activities have been an important aspect of Sem school life since at least the early 1900s, when societies such as the Independent and Plattonian held literary events and debates, and many students worked on major publications like the Opinator and yearbook. Other activities were athletic teams for boys and girls, public speaking competitions, fraternities, sororities, and chapters of the YMCA and YWCA. Today the Upper School offers more than 60 clubs, publications, and service and arts organizations to students; students attending the Upper School are required to complete a minimum of one participation (Excolo)credit per year. In addition to nurturing students’ time-management skills, Sem encourages students and teachers to create clubs that reflect their own interests. The result is that Sem has clubs and programs that are hard to find elsewhere.

International Food Night is an annual event at which students prepare native dishes to share with the whole school community. 2

Just a few examples of these include a cricket club, which competed against a local Penn State team; the film club, which hosts a film festival and has helped some

students win awards at regional festivals; the tai kwon do club, which is open to students and faculty and was originally led by a student who held a high ranking in the sport; and the fencing club, which offers competition at the regional level. Jennifer Siff, Director of Student Life since 2006, oversees many of the programs and activities that students participate in, from residence life to extra-curriculars to government. She is continuously inspired by the energy, creativity and enthusiasm of the students she works with, and she enjoys watching them develop skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. “This is a time in their young lives when memories are made,” she said. “It is a time for students to try new things and broaden their horizons. We try to make it possible for everyone to explore their interests at Sem. If they have an interest in an area unrecognized by the school, students can easily start a club or group and we will support their efforts. By being part of a club, team or group, students learn to be committed and accountable, and they learn about budgeting, planning and time management. In many ways this is more than just fun and games. It teaches them to be a leader in a way that is meaningful to them. It is rewarding to see them so excited and passionate about what they do.” Interim Upper School Dean Jay Harvey, who served as activities director for eight years, sees himself as a good example of a student who grew in leadership and organizational skills because of his participation in Sem’s student activities and theater program. A member of the class of 1980, he served as a disc jockey for school dances, helped build props and sets for proms and theatrical productions, and did a lot of set-up and tear-down for many campus events. He particularly remembers the Snoopy’s Dog House set that he helped build out of cardboard for a formal dance held on campus. “The student activities program is important because it gives students something fun to do and helps them develop leadership and social skills, especially skills that don’t always fit into academic classes. It teaches student to plan and take responsibility, which are personal skill sets that help guarantee success in life,” he says. For the teachers who serve as advisors to various clubs, being a part of these activities offers them opportunities to help students develop new talents and interests that they otherwise might never have explored. Jason Sherry ’91, English teacher, drama director and advisor of the film club, notes that the club is open both to students who take his film production class and those who don’t. Club members help each other learn how to shoot and edit video, how to write and organize a script, how to

direct actors and how to use images, audio and sometimes special effects to present a compelling short video. “The students begin to learn what’s good and what’s bad in both amateur and Director of Student Life, Jennifer Siff (left) professional films, and and Katie Levandoski ’09, collected and then they begin to recognize delivered food to a local food bank. film techniques that they’ve learned,” he says. “This is pure teaching: to teach students something they didn’t know before, and then see them take that teaching and do something new with it, something I didn’t expect. I am constantly inspired by what my students are doing; their learning process helps me understand more thoroughly my own craft.” History department chair Steve Ris, who advises and coordinates the Model United Nations club, notes that when students attend conferences and take on the personas of UN delegates, they become motivated to learn more about the world. Some also enjoy the competition between themselves and other delegates, presenting positions and swaying others to support their positions. “It is wonderfully rewarding to see students blossom and come into their own during these conferences. Many of them are students who are very successful academically but have never tried this sort of activity before. They learn about communication, leadership and collaboration skills and discover that they can succeed in a different area,” says Ris. Librarian and public speaking teacher Ivy Miller serves as advisor to the Opinator, the Media Club and the Action and Awareness Club. In all these activities, she encourages the students to take responsibility for their projects, whether painting posters advertising the weekend’s football game, organizing a movie night to explore diversity issues, or deciding what stories to cover for the next issue of the Opinator. 3

“Ideally students will take ownership of a project and when they do, they discover self-empowerment,” she says. Athletics is an important aspect of extracurriculars at Sem; 86 percent of the student body plays at least one sport, and many play two or three sports. Karen Klassner, Director of Athletics and varsity field hockey coach, sees athletics as a way for students to experience a complete education. Besides the physical benefits, athletics teach teamwork, discipline, and how to deal with both defeat and success. These lessons can be life-altering. “Many of our graduates credit athletics with helping them get to where they wanted to be in life,” says Klassner. Learning how to manage Sem’s challenging academic requirements while playing a sport, performing in the orchestra or serving in student government encourages many students to improve in diligence and responsibility.

Students such as Logan May ’12 or Jessica Swoboda ’11 are among the many Sem students learning to use their time effectively. May, a member of the varsity wrestling team, spends at least 15 hours a week in wrestling practice in addition to traveling and competing in meets during the season, yet still finds time to participate actively in Mock Trial and Model United Nations and

serve in Blue Key, all while taking honors and AP classes. As a member of the field hockey and basketball teams and manager of the softball team, Swoboda also finds that sports take up many of her after-class hours. Add to that her role as government secretary and member of the government executive committee, her participation on the student activities committee, Blue Key, Peer Group and Medical Club, and her position as a Levi Sprague Fellow, and she admits that she has very little free time. But she likes it that way; she says her extracurricular activities helps offset the stress of a course load filled with APs. “Being active at school makes me more aware of what goes on here and helps me expand my horizons and reach out of my comfort zone,” she says. “I think it is really important to get involved.” Another Levi Sprague Fellow, Joshua McLucas ’11, says that Sem’s commitment to active arts and community service programs helped him reconnect to his enjoyment of music and taught him about the importance of cancer research. He’s a member of the Madrigals’ bass section, a leader in the Environmental Awareness Club, a member of the Sem Players, captain of the cross country team, and one of the leaders for the school’s Relay for Life team, a 24-hour walk to raise funds for cancer research. Noting that his participation in Relay for Life was his first experience with community service, he found that the event and its emotional candle-lighting ceremony resonated deeply with him. Since all four of his grandparents suffered with cancer, the event has led him to realize the value of becoming involved in a significant social cause. “Being involved in as many activities as I am has helped me develop time management skills. It’s helped shape me into a better person,” he says. Omeed Firouzi ’11 established a new club, the Junior Statesmen of America (JSA) Club in 2009 as a forum for political discussion and debate. By inviting area government representatives to speak to the club, he met State Representative Phyllis Mundy (D-120th District) who in turn was so impressed with his interest and understanding of politics that she hired him to be her campaign manager for her 2010 reelection campaign. Working full-time all summer and part-time in the fall, Firouzi had an inside look at what happens during a campaign for state office. “One of the most appealing aspects of Sem is that it has so many activities and has something for everyone,” said Firouzi, who also is active on the student activities committee and serves as senior class president and

government vice president. “Our student activities program supports the idea that we are a diverse school and is consistent with the message that we welcome everyone and offer lots of opportunities to try new things.” After graduating from Lower School, Dominick Trombetta ’08 was impressed with the wide range of choices available to him in student activities. While at Upper School he was very active in the Science Research Group and was a co-leader of the group in his senior year; he also worked on the yearbook staff and participated in the debate club. Now a junior neuroscience major at Franklin & Marshall College, he is a member of the crosscountry team and runs winter and spring track; he also volunteers at the Lancaster Regional Medical Center. “Knowing how to divide and manage my time put me very far ahead of many of my colleagues in freshman year,” he says. “Participating in Science Research Group gave me the ability to work independently, solve problems and plan. Also, living in a close school community prepared me for life in the dorm as well as in class and extracurricular activities.” The Sem student activities program: lots of work, lots of learning, lots of preparation for the future, and as Logan May says, “I have fun doing these things!”

More than 85% of Upper School students participate in at least one competitive sport.

Upper School students have a wide variety of sports, clubs and activities to choose from, and frequently establish new clubs in which to share their particular interests. Arts-related:

Sem alumnus named

U.S. Poet Laureate William S. Merwin ’44, recipient of Sem’s Joseph C. Donchess Distinguished Service Award in 2002, was named Poet Laureate on Wednesday, June 30. After two years as a boarder at Wyoming Seminary, Merwin graduated from Princeton University and spent the next several years traveling, tutoring and writing. He has lived in France, Mexico, Boston and New York, but settled in Maui, Hawaii in 1975. With nearly fifty books of poetry, prose and translation to his credit, Merwin’s work is considered to be among the most widely read and imitated in America. In a 1997 article, the Atlantic Monthly noted that his poems have appeared in their pages more frequently than those of any other poet. He has won many prizes and awards, such as two Pulitzers (1971 and 2009), the National Book Award (2005), the Tanning Prize, the Bollingen Prize, the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the PEN Translation Prize, the Wallace Stevens Award and others, and many prestigious grants and fellowships. Although most widely known for poetry, Merwin also wrote 21 books of translation, several plays and five books of prose.

where I had set the waltzing in the first book of “War and Peace” I would pass unseen in that crowd into the cellar and the secret door to the steam pipes and under the street to the swimming pool I would have persuaded a girl I liked to meet me there and we would swim whispering because of the echoes while the light from the street shone through the frosted windows like the light of the moon all down the long hot room where the sound of the water made the heart beat loud to think of it but I never got away then and when I think now of following that tunnel there is a black wolf tied there waiting a thin bitch who snaps at my right hand but I untie her and we find our way out of there as one and down the street hungry nobody in sight at that hour everything closed behind us.

April concert boasted two Stradivarius violins

Ballet great featured at Celebration of the Arts

Two exquisite Stradivarius violins made their Kingston debut on Friday, April 16 as part of a special concert held at the Upper School.

Lower School students dabbled in drama, dance, music and art during a special “Celebration of the Arts” day held in May. The event, coordinated by teacher Bernardine Vojtko, featured special workshops in a variety of arts for students in primary and middle school. The event included an assembly that featured Upper and Lower School performers and an address by Barbara Weisberger, founder of the Pennsylvania Ballet. She discussed the importance of the arts in the lives of students and their communities. Vojtko is the director of the Upper School’s Dance Company and teaches creative movement to primary students at the Lower School.

The concert, titled “The Sound of the Stradivarius,” took place in the Great Hall; proceeds benefitted the music department and its programs. Violinist and alumnus John Michael Vaida ’00, an artist-in-residence at Wyoming Seminary, and Colin Maki, a renowned violinist from Chicago, performed. The Madrigal Singers and select members of the Sem string ensemble accompanied them. The evening’s program included the “Double Concerto” by Bach, the “Sonata for Two Violins” by Prokofiev, “Two Concert Etudes” by Wieniawski and the “Cantique de Jean Racine” by Fauré. “Instruments of this quality are rarely heard in live performances, and it is even more rare to hear two such violins together in such an intimate setting as the Great Hall,” Vaida said. “Both these violins are great examples of Stradivari’s work. It is a thrill and a privilege for both of us to perform on Colin Maki, left, and John Michael Vaida ’00 violins of this caliber.”

The 2010-2011 Levi Sprague Fellows announced During the May awards ceremony at the Upper School, eight juniors received Levi Sprague Fellowships, the highest honor that the school bestows for student leadership and service. Awarded annually to commemorate the 70-year tenure of Wyoming Seminary’s fourth president, the fellowship honors student leaders in academic, athletic and extracurricular life. It also fosters a close and positive relationship between the day and boarding communities of the school by bringing some day students into the dormitories. Levi Sprague Fellows are expected to serve as models to the rest of the student body. Nominations of juniors by students and faculty members are gathered in April and May and passed on to a committee of faculty and current Levi Sprague Fellows. The committee makes the final decision, selecting five to eight Fellows annually.

Seen following the assembly are, first row from left: VOJTKO; ARIKO ANDO ’13, WEISBERGER, and MOLLIE FRIEDMAN ’10. Second row, from left: AMANDA SEDOR ’13, BRIANNA WISE ’11 and SONALI VARHADE ’10.

Lower School students placed First in MATHCOUNTS Competition The MATHCOUNTS team at the Lower School took first place in the Luzerne County Chapter competition held at Wilkes University. The full day of MATHCOUNTS competition featured individual and team events, including sprint, target, team and countdown rounds. Dr. V. Ming Lew of Wilkes University coached this year’s team. Celebrating its 26th anniversary, MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide math enrichment, coaching and competition program designed to increase interest and achievement in mathematics among all intermediate school students, to assist in developing a technically literate population essential to U.S. global competitiveness, and to improve the quality of life.

Recognized students receive full room and board for their senior year and must agree to board on campus for their senior year.

Upper School Players presented “Letters to the Editor”

SRG students on both campuses earned awards

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Issues that were important to residents of a small town 200 years ago – such as road maintenance, politics, the schools, and public safety – are much the same as those facing today’s citizens.

Members of both the Upper and Lower School’s SRG (Science Research Groups) won awards for their research projects at regional and state competitions in May. The students presented oral reports and posters of their research to panels of judges and other students.

These issues and many more, and how people feel about them,were discussed in the play “Letters to The Editor” in the Buckingham Performing Arts Center in May.

Ten Upper School students competed in the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science State Competition, bringing home six First Awards and four Second Awards. Six eighth graders competed and earned four First Awards, one Second Award and one Third Award.

Originally written and produced by the Bloomsburg Theater Ensemble, “Letters” made its world premier in the Alvina Krause Theatre in March, 1996. The show is a compilation of written correspondence to the editors of newspapers published in the Bloomsburg area over a period of about 200 years. A cast of 13 students portrayed as many as 130 different characters, each presenting his or her opinion about life in a small town in central Pennsylvania. A spare set, projected historical images, special lighting effects, silhouettes and evocative costumes set the scenes for the production including live instrumental and vocal music interludes.


At the PA Junior Academy of Science (PJAS), Northeast Regional Meeting, held at King’s College, 12 Upper School students participated, receiving two First Awards/Perfect Scores; eight First Awards; one Second Award and one Third Award. Of the eight Lower School scientists who participated, one received the First Award/Perfect Score and the Excellence Award. For much more information and a list of the winners, please go to “News” on the Web site:

PAI brings Broadway actor to stage production Robert Cuccioli, Tony-nominated actor for “Jekyll and Hyde,” played the Duke in PAI’s summer production of “Two Gentlemen of Verona, the Musical.” The actor rehearsed with PAI theater students, sharing his energy and talent with them in small and large groups. Winning Tony awards for Best Book and Best Musical in 1971, “Two Gentlemen of Verona, the Musical” is an exuberant rock musical based on Shakespeare’s play of the same name. Cuccioli is the third professional actor to be featured in PAI’s theater productions over the last several summers. Students have benefitted from working with David Canary (from TV’s “All My Children”) and Austin Pendleton (“My Cousin Vinny”).

Sixth graders communicate with school in Thailand What is it like to go to school in Thailand? How is it different from school in Northeastern Pennsylvania? Sixth-grade students at Wyoming Seminary Lower School explored these and other questions as they communicated with a school in Thailand. The Sem students exchanged post cards with seventh-grade students at the Wang Khaem Wittakahom Secondary School, describing what it’s like to be in sixth grade and what they are studying in science. Later in the year, the students used “voice thread,” a way to combine e-mail with vocal recordings, to learn more about their Thailand counterparts.

News from the Alumni Director

“What does

Wyoming Seminary

Owe You?”

That question was asked at an alumni focus group in Philadelphia a few years ago. After a few uncomfortable minutes of silence, a young alumnus spoke up, “All Sem needs to do for me is maintain its great reputation, so when I say I went to Sem, I can be proud.” As someone who has many affiliations with Sem – alumna, daughter of an alumnus, sister of alumni, employee, and perhaps most importantly, mother of one student and one alum – I have experienced the school on many levels and over the course of many years. To our friend in Philadelphia, I say this: “You needn’t worry. Our school is as great as it ever was!” Sem’s programs – academics, athletics, the arts and of course the multitude of clubs and activities – are impressive. Log onto our Web site and get a glimpse of all that is going on at Sem. I recommend that you click on “Sem Video: Get to Know Us!” as well as check the news, sports and other pages regularly. But more than anything else, I urge you to come back and see for yourself why you can be proud of your alma mater. Take time at reunions to see the students in action. You are always welcome to sit in on a class, watch a play practice or simply hang out on campus and observe the Sem of today. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

New Director of Alumni Programs Julie McCarthy Strzeletz ’81 reconnected with alumni at reunions in May.  Left to right, they are: Tish Mack Grosek ’80, Jessica Ross Davis ’80, Gina Cotton Simpson ’79, Susie Cockburn Bradbury ’81, Amee Alagiri and Strzeletz.

Kip Nygren meets Nelson Banks, again!

Irv Brand and Steve Brandwene

During Alumni Weekend, May 1, 2010, President Nygren discovered that he’d made a Sem connection 40 years earlier. Meeting Dr. Nelson Banks ’60 at Saturday’s cocktail reception, Nygren recognized the medical doctor assigned to his first Army unit, the 3rd Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment located in Amberg, Germany. Serving together in February 1970, Nelson gave Nygren a physical exam required for entrance into flight school. Casually correcting Nygren’s erroneous assumption that he had hay fever, a condition that would have disqualified him from becoming a pilot, Banks changed Nygren’s life forever. 29

1941 MARJORIE TAITE AUSTIN, Steamboat Springs, Colo., writes, My time at Wyoming Seminary was spent as a 7-day boarder. My favorite professor was Leroy Bugbee and my favorite administrator was Dean Adams. My UN-favorite things were wearing hats, stockings, and skirts off campus and having only two weekends away at my grandmother’s farm in Tunkhannock. My work duty was to clean the girls’ gym and I lost one study hall each day to work in the library. Let’s see, Sem owes me ___?___ study halls! The only meal we were allowed to miss was lunch. The second floor had no bathrooms so we had to go up to the third floor. Lights were out at 10 PM and study hall was from 8 PM to 9:45 PM. But we liked most everyone and there was a respect and consideration which I hope is still there. My great grandparents met at Wyoming Seminary. They were members of one of the first classes-Benjamin Manning Hall who lived on a farm in Tunkhannock and Asenath De Witt who lived on a farm in West Pittston. He walked from Kingston to West Pittston to ask her to marry him. He walked back because he had no money for a horse and carriage. He was late for school the next day and worried that Dr. Sprague would punish him. I was born on that farm. My father Manning Taite inherited it. I started at Goucher and left there to join SPARS U.S. Coast Guard-W.R. Our first WWII training was in Palm Beach, Fla.! I continued my studies at the University of Virginia where women were allowed to study only nursing, education or attend graduate school. I didn’t want nursing so I took education and that’s how I became a teacher. I married and had two children, Robert and Jayne, and my husband Captain W.H. Austin Jr. was in the school of engineering. What do I think of so-called prep schools? I was at Sem four years. My father was a graduate of the Peddie ’14. My brother spent 4 years at St Bernard’s in N.J. My son attended Episcopal

Academy in Merion, where I taught for 10 years, and my daughter went to the Shipley School. My son-in-law was the Head of School at Lowell Whitman School in Steamboat Springs, Colo. My daughter and her husband graduated from The George School, a Quaker school in Newtown Pa. I have two grandchildren, a girl and a boy. Both graduated from the University of Virginia. I also have four great-grandchildren. Go WYO! MTA

1944 KAY JOHNSON EDGERTON and BOB EDGERTON ’42, Dallas, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on June 24 at a party given by their sons ROBERT EDGERTON JR. ’69 and Ritchie Edgerton. Many members of ’42, ’44 and other Sem classes were in attendance.

1950 JOEL “JIM” GOLDSTEIN, Bryn Mawr, writes, I’m still seeing patients although I get to my office an hour later and come home an hour earlier. I’m also still teaching residents at Drexel College of Medicine and at the Psychoanalytic Institute. We’re doing pretty much what we were doing on our 50th. Debby is retired from pediatrics, but is doing a lot of work for the College of Physicians and is president of the Franklin Inn Club – a literary club. (Miss Brown never did approve of dashes.) Paul, our son, is an environmental biologist, working in Massachusetts. I wish you well and hope you stay healthy.

1951 HAROLD “HAL” C.W. BIRTH, Santa Monica, Calif., writes, I met my wife, Shirley Lovelace, at the US Embassy in London where she was employed in 1968. We have two living children, Cynthia and Victoria. Bradley (Sem class of ’76) lost his battle with cancer in 2009. We have two grandsons, Bradley and Alexander Birth, living in Virginia. I entered the US Air Force as an enlisted Aviation Cadet in 1953. After two years of training, I was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant and jet pilot. My next two duty assignments were in 18th Air Force then in 12th Air Force Headquarters. My first operational assignment was at RAF Alconbury, England flying secret reconnaissance missions over Europe in a Douglas B-66 aircraft during the Cold War. My return

to the US was short as I was sent to Vietnam on classified orders with a Diplomatic Passport to fly military missions over North Vietnam. After flying 84 combat missions my one year tour was complete and I was transferred back to RAF Alconbury England and trained in the new Douglas RF-4C Phantom II reconnaissance aircraft. After I completed my four year tour flying classified missions in Europe I received a change of command to the Strategic Air Command flying the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress at Grand Forks AFB ND. As a brand new crew we quickly earned a top overall lead crew rank making us eligible for an Arc light tour of duty in Vietnam. As a lead Aircraft Commander, I led a cell of three B-52’s over targets in Vietnam, dropping a total of 90 tons of bombs on each of my next 58 combat missions. My war record includes: 142 combat missions over Vietnam The Distinguished Flying Cross The Meritorious Service Medal The Air Medal with 9 Oak Leaf Clusters After retiring from the USAF, I gained employment as a pilot instructor at Continental Airlines. I quickly rose to Lead Instructor on the Boeing 737 followed by Lead Instructor on the Boeing 747. After receiving many accolades in innovative pilot training techniques from classroom computer based facilitator to simulator training instructor, I retired with 25 years of full time employment. Following my retirement I was called upon to do part time training at Continental for four more years. I now remain active as President/CEO of Princeton Villas Homeowners Association, Inc in Santa Monica, Calif. JOHN B. FASSETT, Fort Meyers, Fla., moved to Ft. Meyers in 1960 and has practiced law there for over 50 years. Shortly after moving there, he married Gloria A. Ankers of South Bend, Ind. They have two daughters: Jane, an attorney in Alamo, California, and Anne, who was employed as a counselor with the Department of Juvenile Justice of the State of Florida until her untimely death from a stroke at age 33 in 1999. John is a member of the St. Lukes Episcopal Church in Ft. Meyers. He is on the Board of Directors of the Fort Meyers Community Concert Association. He is past director of the Prince Gardner Company, an originator, past president and member of the Board of Directors or Southwest Florida Self Help Housing, Inc., past chairman of Lee County Muscular Dystrophy Association, past secretary and current Vice President of the Fort Myers Optimist Club and a member of the organization’s Board of Directors for over 40 years. Mr. Fassett was president of the Lee County Association for Retarded Citizens from 1980-1984. He helped Barbara Mann create the Lee County Alliance of the Arts and served on its Board of Directors for years. He is a former Municipal Judge, being sworn in by the County Clerk in 1964 and in that capacity served as Director of the State of Florida Municipal Judges Association. All municipal judges, in every city in Florida, were retired in 1972 and the courts were merged into County 35

Class Notes Courts in each county. He was past secretary and treasurer of the Lee County Bar Association and is a member of the Estate Planning Council of Lee County. His present law firm limits its practice to Wills, Estates, Probate and Corporations.

1955 DONNA GAY KAPLAN, Mt. Gretna, writes, Mel and I love living in idyllic Mt. Gretna where we are active in leading and participating in many fine programs throughout the year. PEG SMEDLEY, Cleveland, Ohio, writes, Not much has changed since my last submission of ‘notes.’ I am currently a professor in psychology at Cleveland State University specializing in workforce issues in the 21st century. I am also a training consultant in many areas that include brain research and workforce and the boomers. I still ‘brag’ about my prep school education in my college and graduate school courses ... seems like just a few years ago. Keep up the great work you all do.

1956 FREDERICK FARBER, Montclair, Va., writes, After 34 years in Naval uniform, I retired as a captain and then worked for a Washington defense contractor for nine years, directing business development. Now retired for the second time, my spouse of 46 years and I live in Dumfires, Va. Patty enjoys tennis and I coach soccer and do some fishing. We have two sons and one daughter. Four grandsons and four granddaughters are our blessing. All are doing well…happy and healthy. Hello all of you in the class of 1956. KELLY MATHER, Sebastian, Fla., suggests classmates look out for the coming web page:

JUDITH SCHIFFMAN HOLLAENDER, Philadelphia, reports the passing of her husband, William, on February 23, 2010.

MARY RUTH CURTIS, Mount Dora, Fla., writes, Visiting China was not on the bucket list, but when the choral director at nearby Stetson announced that Stetson University Choral Union was teaming up with the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir to do a concert tour of Shanghai and Beijing, I signed on. Our nine-day visit to China was illuminating as well as productive. We sang six concerts, two of which were the Brahms “Requiem.” The other concerts were Americana, some spirituals, some standards and the proverbial “Take Me out to the Ball Game.” After our first concert at the Great Wall, our Chinese guide told us she especially liked “Take Me out of the Ball Game,” and the term “lost in translation” took on new meaning for me. We toured cloisonné, silk and jade factories, saw the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace, climbed the Great Wall, and toured the World Expo where we sang three concerts. The Chinese are very curious about Americans and want to talk to and be photographed with us, using their cell phones. Since the children take English in elementary school, it is easy to carry on conversations with them and their parents, while the children translate. As I have found in other foreign countries, when language fails me, smiles are universal and infectious. I enjoyed speaking with the people and eating most of their cuisine, which lacks sweets, except for fresh fruit. In both cities we were told to drink only bottled water; but in the restaurants Chinese beer, Coke, and Sprite were abundant. Beijing was shrouded in smog for the five days we stayed there. Even though they removed the factories for the Olympics in 2008, their emission standards are higher than ours are, and they allow only light trucks, cars, and cycles in cities, the number of vehicles precludes healthy air. If you still doubt the effects of carbon emissions on air quality, I would suggest you make a visit to Beijing. Although I enjoyed my visit to China and I am encouraged to visit other countries to sing, something about this trip continues to make me realize I am not only very proud, but also very grateful to be an American.

1961 HOWARD GARDNER, Cambridge, Mass., writes, I moved to Cambridge and Harvard in 1961 and been here ever since—as a college student, graduate student, researcher and professor of psychology and education. I’ve had a wonderful professional and personal life with four great children, a lively grand child, and my wife Ellen, with whom I share work and play. PETER JOHNSON, Oro Valley, Ariz., writes, Rick Geisinger was my best friend and I really miss him. We loved Wyoming Seminary and the excellent education we received from the outstanding faculty. Sports played an important role for us in developing our competitive spirit and sense of sportsmanship. Life keeps us moving towards maturity, wisdom and contribution to community. We value the life lessons afforded by our Wyoming Seminary experience. DALE MOSES, Port Townsend, Wash., writes, Susie and I are enjoying life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. With both of us now retired and our two kids out of the house, it leaves plenty of time to use our 41-foot trawler to cruise the many waters of our area. In addition to being our yacht club’s Commodore, [I am} starting [my] second year as President of our condo association while Susie keeps busy with AAUW, singing, book clubs and needlework. We are also doing more traveling long distance (usually by air) and enjoying not doing the 8-5 routine. CHARLES ROMANE, Fort Myers, Fla., writes, I am retired, living in Florida. Enjoying life but not enjoying new things like “The Doughnut Hole.”

Alumni Profile

George Stevenson

producer/cameraman for the

World Series of Poker Written by Polly Mitchell ’72

eorge Stevenson ’70 has never had a job that required him to wear a tie. His non-traditional journey has taken him from bar coowner to ranch hand to videographer, from Delaware to California to Las Vegas, almost always in jeans and a t-shirt. One could certainly say that George inherited some of his freethinking, carpe diem attitude towards life from his creative, supportive mother. When he was still a student, his mother bought him his first camera. Throughout the year, on the “perfect fall day” (or winter or spring), she’d say to him, “No school today. Stay home and take photographs. You need to capture this glorious day on film.” After three years as a boarder at Wyoming Seminary (1966-1969), George finished high school in his hometown of Hawley, Pa. Following graduation, he took his first steps away from a suit-and-tie lifestyle when he moved to Newark, Delaware to work with his brother, Bill Stevenson ’68. Bill had purchased an old inn and turned it into a legendary rock’n’roll bar. The Stone Balloon became a prime destination for live rock music concerts featuring the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Pat Benatar, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Manhattan Transfer, The Pointer Sisters and Hall and Oates. George, initially too young to have a drink at his own bar, kept the books, cleaned and made his first contacts in the television industry when the co-hosts of MTV came to film concerts. After ten years working at the Stone Balloon, George moved to northern California and worked on a 500-acre ranch, helping to turn it into a retreat for video game executives. Gravitating to southern California and living on a boat, he gained enough knowledge of boats and boat-

owners to be offered a job on ESPN’s “Boating World.” At the beginning George set up interviews but he soon established a friendship with the cameramen. One day when an audio technician was unable to work, George jumped in. Over time, continuing to work for ESPN, he learned audio and camera techniques from the pros, honed his skills and earned a good reputation. In 1989, a producer from ABC called. He needed a video crew to work on a show called “Primetime Live” with Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson. George grabbed this opportunity and cultivated audio and video skills in the field of investigative reporting, winning three Emmy awards and a Peabody during his years on Sawyer’s personal crew. Among the first people to put cameras in buttons and smoke detectors, George was later hired by NBC to shoot “To Catch a Predator.” Many years of investigative video work brought George an expertise in working with small cameras, and that expertise led him back to ESPN and the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Shot in Las Vegas in June and July, the WSOP consists of 57 events and calls for an enormous crew of people working with dozens of pieces of equipment. The concluding two games require 27 cameras and a threeday set-up time. These are arduous days and nights, but the crew gets a glimpse of a real-life drama worth millions of dollars. Producers of poker tours around the world have hired George to shoot their events as well. “Filming the poker shows has given me the opportunity to travel to China, the Philippines, Australia and many other places,” George says. “It’s been quite an adventure.” Looking back on his extraordinary life path, George comments, “Although my experiences have been somewhat colorful, they are just the way my life turned out, and it’s kind of like the song ‘Live Like We’re Dying’ - Live each day like it might be the last, and hope it’s not. “Would I do it all again the same way? ‘You bet cha’ I would, but I’m also envious of the much smarter people in my life who accomplished more important things in their journey, and I hope my daughters (Rachel, 14 and Jessica, 17 ) follow in those footsteps. But I truly have had a great time!” Look for George’s work on ESPN, and contact him at To read more of George’s impressive videography, go to  A large team works behind the scenes at the World Series of Poker. 37

1978 JOSEPH DIRENZO, Suffolk, Va., writes, On May 19, my wife Captain Karen DiRenzo, NC, USN, and I watched our son, now Ensign Joe DiRenzo IV, walk across the stage and receive his diploma at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn. A few minutes

later Karen, with then USCG Commandant Admiral Thad Allen, handed Joe his commission. As I write this, Joe is already underway as the ANAV on CGC VIGILANT a 210’ medium endurance cutter home-ported in Coco Beach, Florida. On top of the excitement of graduating from the academy and heading to sea, Joe was also selected for a Fulbright Scholarship. In 2011, he will depart VIGILANT and head to Iceland where he will enter a program that will result in a master’s degree in renewable energy science. He will study hydrogen cell design and its application to cutters. Following completion of his studies, Joe is slated to return to VIGILANT to finish his Deck Watch Officer tour. It was pure joy for both Karen and me to watch Joe enter “the family business.” As for Karen, she is still stationed in Newport R.I. as the Director of Nursing and Director of Branch Clinics for Navy Health Clinic New England. In addition, with the current OIC deployed to OEF, she is tripled-hatted as the acting OIC of Naval Branch Clinic Groton where she has run into a few members of the Class of ’82 in both Groton and Newport! Karen has one more year left on the tour. Being in New England has worked well as Joe and our daughter Lauren (who just finished her freshman year at Mitchell College) were an hour and twenty minutes away from Karen’s apartment in Newport. As for me, with Coast Guard modernization came a small change. I am now the Chief of Operations Analysis at Coast Guard Atlantic Area. Our branch does all the ops research work, modeling, simulation and technology interaction with our R&D center supporting the Commander of Atlantic Area who is a three star. Little bit of change from my former job which was Chief of Operational Planning and Anti-Terrorism Coordination. The new billet is exciting, wonderful people and a challenging environment every day. I get to work with the Navy Labs, and the DHS Academic Centers of Excellence. I am still teaching for American Military University online and as an Adjunct at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk.

1984 RANDY DOMOLKY, Fairfax, Va., writes, I am pleased to report that I have successfully completed my first half-marathon, raising over $5,600 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and finishing the 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 15 minutes. This race pace was 7% faster than my revised goal and only 4% slower than my original goal of running the entire race at a 10 minutes per mile pace. The huge hills on the course (ouch!) slightly more than equally offset the cool temperatures, the race day adrenaline and my proper training. As far as fundraising goes, the $5,679 in supporter contributions exceeded my fund raising goal of $5,000. Thanks so much to everyone who helped the CCFA raise over $1,800,000 from this race alone toward finding a cure for Crohn’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis!

ANNA MICHALKOVA, Bratislava, Slovakia. In her correspondence with Jack Eidam, Anna writes, Much has happened since the last time we saw each other in Stockholm. For one, I have successfully completed my graduate studies, so now I am officially master of social science. I have also moved from Sweden and live in the Netherlands now. In fact, I moved back in April, as I was finishing my master’s thesis. I got an offer from the Hague Center for Strategic Studies to work as a policy analyst – intern for a period of five months. It was a tough choice to make, as I had a temporary job in Stockholm as well, but I felt ready for a change and for new challenges. It would be me though, to make things just a bit more complicated, so instead of ‘only’ working on my thesis and working (full time) at the Hague Center, I was also working (remotely) for about 10-15 hours a week for my Stockholm job. I was only able to have these three jobs until the end of April, and then I had to start really focusing on my thesis while working in the Hague. So, now that it’s over and I ‘only’ work full time, it feels almost like a holiday. My contract expires in early September, and I am not exactly sure what will happen after that. I enjoy living in the Netherlands. It’s a really beautiful country, certainly worth a visit at least!

They would spend eight days on a very unusual “vacation.” Inspired by what she heard about Carolina Honduras Health Foundation,* Cindy proposed a trip that would allow the entire family to help people who desperately needed it, sharing an experience that would be lifechanging for the entire family. Because Cindy had maintained her board certification, she and husband Steve would be able to bring medical help to a small village in Honduras that sees doctors only 18 weeks out of 52. Laura and Brian would help in a variety of ways, assisting their parents and working with the villagers. The following is what Cindy wrote to friends on Facebook:

How did your experiences at Sem affect your educational, career or life journey? CPS: Hmm. Well, I think I first decided on a career in medicine in about seventh grade when I had my first real science class with Mr. Landau, an excellent teacher. At the Upper School I absolutely loved my biology classes with Mr. Flick.  He allowed me to do extra projects like following the course of developing egg embryos and preserving them throughout an entire growth cycle, to helping me dissect a frog to its bare bones.  I wonder if that skeleton is still in the lab somewhere?  He helped me mount it and I was inordinately proud to have it displayed in his lab.  But it was really Mr. Nageli who most influenced me in high school.  He taught the best English class I ever had, where we learned more about ourselves than we did about literature.  Mr. Post (history) guided me to Kenyon College where I was able to pursue my love of science and still remain a determined English major. So sure, it all adds up to make a life!  Who knows where we get our biggest influences?  Sem certainly reinforced a sense of needing to “give back,” and (then President) Wally Stettler boosted my confidence immeasurably when he gave me the President’s Award at the end of our senior year. I have been so lucky in life!  Now I am proud to see the ideals I was invested with as a child being reflected back at me through my own children.  It is incredibly gratifying!


Class Notes everyone know what I’ve been up to.

If it is true, however, that in tough times you find out who your friends really are— then this year was further confirmation of what we already knew. We are blessed with great friends. Over the course of the year, we received continuous encouragement and support from all of you, and each of you did what you could to ensure Wyoming Seminary’s continued success. We are grateful. Despite the unique obstacles presented by the economic downturn, the Wyoming Seminary annual giving program surpassed its goal of $1.2 million, reaching $1,453,000. Also noteworthy, $3,139,000 in cash was raised for the School—the seventh highest total in school history. These achievements are the direct result of your generosity and support. In the face of this year’s challenges, Sem had to identify and focus on those priorities that are most essential to our mission. To that end our alumni and friends could choose to designate their gifts to annual giving in support of financial aid, faculty resources or a specific program area. This change highlights the importance of your support in providing students with the financial support they need and the quality of teaching they deserve. The following is a comparison of giving for the last five fiscal years:

Throughout its 166 year history, Wyoming Seminary, like most educational institutions, has relied on these three pillars of support – annual giving, endowment and capital support. The School continues in the “quiet” phase of a capital campaign with the dual focus of significantly increasing the School’s endowment as well as creating some new campus facilities while also providing major renovations on others. Specifically in terms of facilities it is important to celebrate all that has happened in the past five years all geared toward the strategic vision and master plan of the institution: • Klassner Field, a new turf field for field hockey, lacrosse and soccer, was constructed in 2006. • A comprehensive exterior structural renovation of Swetland, Fleck and Darte Hall was begun in 2007 and will be completed this October.

• The modernization of classrooms and the hallway on the third floor of Sprague Hall to include the addition of interactive whiteboards completed in 2009.

On behalf of the entire Advancement Team, I want to thank John ’69, Mary ’72 and Gigi ’77 Lopatto for chairing our annual campaign. They and their team, especially the members of the Leadership Gifts Committee, did an outstanding job.

• The creation of a new third floor classroom lab in Nesbitt Hall and the installation of interactive white boards in most rooms were completed this summer.

• A complete renovation of the Kirby Library in 2008.

Wyoming Seminary has been approved since October 2001 by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a “Scholarship Organization” under the guidelines of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Through this program, Pennsylvania corporations who pay certain state taxes can make a gift to the scholarship program at Sem in lieu of paying up to 90% of those state taxes if the company makes a two year commitment. We are most grateful to the following companies for their support during the current fiscal year: Almo Corporation, Benco Dental Company, Diamond Consolidated Industries, Diamond Manufacturing, First Liberty Bank & Trust, First National Community Bank, Frontier Communications, Lackawanna Insurance Group, Luzerne Bank, The Martz Group, Masonry Preservation Services, Medico Industries, Inc., Medico Rental Inc., National Penn Bank, Petroleum Service Company, Pride Mobility, Sordoni Construction Services and Straub Metal International. A school like Wyoming Seminary has not been able to grow and develop the way it has, however, by current gifts alone. Indeed many 52

• Resizing and modernization of the entire first floor and entryway at Lower School accomplished over the past two years.

• The construction of the Lull Tennis Center was completed in 2009. Over this five year time period, $10 million has been contributed by the members of the board of trustees and loyal benefactors of the institution to achieve the above objectives – yet another indication of the generous support of our friends. There are ambitious and exciting goals for the next five years to move Sem – we know we can count on our friends once again. On behalf of the Alumni/Development Office staff, I thank you for your commitment to and generous support of Wyoming Seminary. I look forward to seeing you in my travels around the country or on campus in the near future.

The Westlake Society The Westlake Society recognizes those alumni and friends of Wyoming Seminary who have indicated that they have made provisions for a gift to the School in their estate plans, or through membership in The Living Endowment Society. This recognition society was previously known as The Planned Giving Honor Roll, but was renamed in memory of Emory H. Westlake Class of 1896 in recognition of and with appreciation of his generous bequest to the School in 1996 at the time of the 150th Anniversary Campaign. Mr. Westlake creatively planned his estate in order to maximize his giving to those charities most important to him. Within a few months of the 100th anniversary of his graduation, Mr. Westlake’s bequest created the Westlake Scholarship Endowment Fund at Wyoming Seminary. The School feels his wise use of charitable and estate gift planning is an example for others to emulate. In addition to the names that follow, there are others who have included Wyoming Seminary in their estate plans, but at their request, their names are not listed.
