3 A Bridge Between Then and Now From the Vice President for Advancement, Kelly J. Vowels, 85 The recent implosion of the Amelia Earhart Bridge brought faculty, students and Atchison residents together to witness history. It was a strange feeling that something like a bridge imploding could tug at the heartstrings as it fell into the river. Gone in mere seconds. For more than 75 years that old bridge connected the banks of the Missouri River, bringing people safely into Atchison. There are countless stories from alumni, students and parents about their first trip over that bridge into Atchison. In its place is a beautiful new four-lane Amelia Earhart Bridge, standing brilliantly over the Missouri River, its blue steel frame gleaming. The new bridge will serve the same purpose; transporting alumni back to the age of 18 as they head west across the Missouri River into Atchison. Everyone has fond memories of the old bridge, but nobody hated to see it go. That s because the new bridge builds on the tradition of the old and updates it. There is no place that recognizes the importance of this more than Benedictine College. The college has seen tremendous growth over the past 15 years. Yet, with each new building, residence hall, statue, grotto and chapel, one thing remains true: attention to the tradition of Benedictine College is guaranteed. When alumni visit the campus, they continue to feel like they are coming home regardless of when they graduated. And they marvel at the beauty of their campus and how it continues to improve and increase in value. Yet it remains true to itself. Our most recent residence hall demonstrates this. St. Michael Hall bears the name of a building that was razed 15 years ago. The new dorm houses 150 sophomore and junior men. In June, the reunion class of 1973 returned to Atchison for their 40th reunion and spent the weekend as guests in St. Michael Hall. The years fell away and it was just like old times. Dear friends of the college, Rich and Cindy Dickason, honored their son, Chris, with the naming of the St. Michael Hall Chapel, housed in the residence hall, and the statue of the Archangel that stands guard in front of the hall. Their generosity in honoring a loved one brought forth a deep connection to the place and young men who reside there that was unexpected, yet powerful. In this issue of the Spirit of Giving you ll read stories similar to that of the Dickason family, as well as our beloved benefactors, without whom this Benedictine education would not be possible. We are grateful to all who support us with their gifts and generosity of self, as they help keep these Benedictine traditions alive and strong. They are doing so much, in the best Benedictine tradition, to build a bridge that will bring more people into this special place we have found in Atchison. For Benedictine, 3

4 Benedictine College Fall 2013 E I E I Open! New Center Honors Casey s Soccer Legacy John Casey popularized the now famous E-I-E-I-O cheer still heard today! The Benedictine College community gathered at the soccer field on the Atchison campus Saturday night, Sept. 21, to honor one of the great names in the history of the Benedictine men s soccer program, John Casey. Along with the women s and men s soccer teams, coaches and many fans, the Casey family was present for the unveiling of the new John Casey Soccer Center. John Casey s friends and teammates (see below) thought so highly of him that they banded together to raise the funds necessary to build the much-needed press box that bears his name, a project the school enhanced with locker rooms. The result is one of the best soccer facilities in the nation. A 1974 graduate of Benedictine College, John returned in 1983 to coach one of the most successful Benedictine teams in history. He passed away in 2010 but his legacy is continued through his wife, Pam, and his children, Kevin, colleen (a 2005 graduate) and Colin, and the successful soccer program he helped build. Along the way, the team held the Number 1 ranking in the national polls, had an exciting overtime victory against Regis College and, after losing to Rockhurst 1-0 in the regular season, beat the archrival 2-0 in the Area IV finals to earn the berth in the 4 Members of the 1983 Men s Soccer Team with Mrs. Pam Casey.

5 Benedictine College Fall 2013 National Tournament. Two players, Jim Kopfensteiner and Joe Valenti, were unanimous selections to the NAIA All District Team and three others, Steve Bolin, Wayne Kissel and Pat Knott, were also named to the team. Kopfensteiner was also named to the All-America team and Bolin earned second-team honors. Ultimately, John was named Coach of the Year in the 12-state NAIA Midwest Region. While a student, John popularized the now famous E-I-E-I-O cheer still heard today, and he was VERY energetic with it! As an alumnus, he helped found the Benedictine College Soccer Boosters with Dan Stewart, Denny Ayer, Craig Klos, and Tom Gorczyca. That organization, which now includes many more members, has made incredible contributions to the Benedictine soccer program and helped finance improvements such as the stadium seating, field turf, lights, and the impressive new Soccer Center. John was honored with the Kansas Monk award in 2006, and he was postumously inducted into the Benedictine College Raven Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010 and the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame in His beloved Soccer Boosters will be honored with the Cross of the Order of St. Benedict in February at the 2014 Scholarship Ball.

6 Benedictine College Fall Years of Brungardts College awards Raven family that is four generations strong The story began in the early 1900s with Balthasar Brungardt from Victoria, Kan. He graduated from St. Benedict s College, now Benedictine College, in Fast forward 105 years and you would see members of the four generations of Brungardt Ravens lined up on the football field. Family Weekend at Benedictine College featured the presentation of the 2013 Family Award to the Dr. Balthasar and Mrs. Margaret Brungardt family. The Brungardts were honored with a presentation of the annual award during halftime of the Benedictine football game Saturday, October 5. Paul (St. Benedict s College class of 1965) and Marg (Mount St. Scholastica Class of 1966) Brungardt accepted the award on behalf of the entire family. Paul was part of the second generation to attend the college and was the senior member present for the honor. For four generations, the Brungardts have been sending their children to Benedictine College, said Stephen D. Minnis, president of Benedictine College. The family is one of only two we know of with legacies that stretch back that far. As a group, they include a Bishop, a priest, a state senator, five doctors and two who have served on our Board of Directors. They have sent almost 20 family members to Benedictine College. It is fitting that the entire Brungardt family receives our Benedictine College Family Award for In 1914, Balthasar completed his medical degree at Creighton University and set up his practice in Salina, Kan. He served in World War I and then returned to his practice in Salina. The Brungardts are connected to another large legacy family at Benedictine College, the Schaefers, through Balthasar s first wife, Mary Zita (Schaefer) Brungardt. She passed away in He and his second wife, Margaret, raised 18 children. In addition to Paul Brungardt, five of his brothers also attended St. Benedict s College: Dr. Bernard Brungardt, 1943; Dr. Thomas Brungardt, 1944; Francis Brungardt, 1950; Michael Brungardt, 1958; and Jerry Brungardt, Five of Balthaser s grandchildren are Benedictine grads, including former state senator Pete Brungardt, O.D., 1968, of Salina; Dr. Jerry Brungardt, 1979, from Wichita; Bishop John Brungardt, 1980, of Dodge City; Elaine (Brungardt) Scott, 1981, of Atchison; and Kathleen (Brungardt) Fitzpatrick, 1990, of Wichita. Jerry Brungardt and his aunt, Mary (Brungardt) Buser, have both served the college as members of the Board of Directors and Jerry is currently on the board. Balthasar s great-granddaughter, Aubrey Scott, graduated in 2005; his great-grandson, Joseph Brungardt, graduated in 2011; his great-grandson, Michael Brungardt, attended Benedictine but left to enter the seminary; and another great-granddaughter, Virginia Brungardt, is the most recent graduate, having walked across the stage this past May. The Brungardt family has enjoyed Benedictine College commencement exercises for more than a century! 6 The 2013 family award went to the Brungardt family, which has sent four generations of students to Benedictine College, including Bishop John Brungardt, far right.

7 Benedictine College Fall 2013 St. Michael s Guardian Angels Dickasons Name New Chapel in Honor of their Son Cindy and Rich Dickason unveiling the St. Michael Statue in front of St. Michael Hall. Fr. Brendan Rolling, OSB, 93 and the Dickason Family after Mass in the new St. Michael Hall Chapel. Rich and Cindy Dickason have been very attached to St. Michael Hall, especially considering their son, Christopher Michael, carries the Saint s name. And Christopher Michael is very connected to Benedictine College. He proposed at Mary s Grotto, his wedding was in St. Benedict s Parish Church, and the reception was the first function to be held in the new conference facility on the fourth floor of the Ferrell Academic Center. So, like the archangel, the Dickasons took the new residence hall under their protective wing and have lovingly given the funds to name the chapel and erect the statue at the entryway as well as the smaller statue inside, said Stephen D. Minnis, president of Benedictine College. Benedictine College, in keeping with its residential nature, added St. Michael Hall to its line-up of residence halls. The facility houses 150 sophomore and junior men as well as the Chapel of St. Michael, the first chapel to be consecrated in a residence hall since The name and the chapel have special significance to Rich and Cindy Dickason, longtime Atchisonians and friends of the college were proud to have Christoper Michael and his family at the unveiling. Rich and Cindy were honored with the Cross of the Order of St. Benedict in They have been very involved in the development of the community of Atchison for many years. Rich has worked for Exchange National Bank & Trust for nearly 40 years, much of it as president and CEO. He and Cindy have served the health and educational needs of the community through their involvement with the local hospital, the YMCA, DoVES, St. Benedict Catholic School, Maur Hill-Mount Academy, Courtney S. Turner Trust, and other charities and civic groups, including Benedictine College. Rich has served on the boards of many of these Atchison organizations and he served on the Finance Committee of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas as well. Cindy worked with S. Helen Buening, OSB, 47 at Mount St. Scholastica Monastery on a fine arts program for elementary students and has served on the board of DoVES, a non-profit agency dedicated to serving victims of domestic violence. A unveiling ceremony, including a private Mass, was held on Sunday, September 29, on the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel. 7

8 Benedictine College Fall 2013 The Gift of Ravenhood Their scholarships change generations, not just lives Many alumni and friends have supported Benedictine College students by establishing scholarships to ensure future generations of students are able to obtain their degrees and fulfill their dreams, building on the legacy of others. These donors who have continued to give and to grow their endowed funds so that multiple scholarships may be available each year. Mary Ketter Landon, 49, with the help of her daughter, Charlotte Landon Shaw, 79, writes on a birthday card to a family member. Mary honors her children s and grandchildren s birthdays with gifts to the Landon Family Scholarship. Landon Family Gift: An Education On Family Weekend 2012, Mary Ketter Landon s children and grandchildren surprised her by announcing that they had created the Landon Family Scholarship as an everlasting legacy at Benedictine College. The endowed scholarship has become the gift that keeps on giving, as Mary commemorates the birthdays and special events in her children s and grandchildren s lives by sending gifts in their names to the scholarship fund. I told my children, If you want to do anything for me now as a gift, contribute to this endowment fund, and they said, Mom, you can do the same thing for us, said Landon. Mary enjoys writing special notes and mailing out cards to her eight children, their spouses and her grandchildren. In each card she writes that a gift has been sent to Benedictine College in their honor, which makes gift-giving a whole lot easier. All of my children have said that the best gift we gave them is their Benedictine education, said Landon. The family has sent 26 students through Benedictine College and its founding institutions, Mount St. Scholastica College and St. Benedict s College. The run started four generations ago in 1909 when Andrew Ketter, Mary s father, attended St. Benedict s College. Endowed scholarships enable you to create an ongoing investment in Benedictine. They also introduce a more personal element, as they can carry a family name or can be named in honor or memory of a beloved faculty member, and they benefit specific students.

9 Benedictine College Fall 2013 Members of the Mid-Mo Ravens, a Benedictine alumni group based in Central Missouri gathered with Benedictine College President Stephen D. Minnis at their Mid-Mo Ravens alumni gathering in Jefferson City in August. The group has raised more than $50,000 to endow a named scholarship and provide scholarship assistance to students from their area to attend Benedictine College. Rosemary Kinsella Schmiedeler, 52, with her daughters; Patricia McKenna, 76, Suzanne Barnthouse, Dorothy Schmiedeler, Teresa Schmiedeler Welling, Judith Donnellan, and Kathleen Howe, following John s memorial service December (The daughters are named in birth order rather than in relationship to seating in the photo) Mid-Mo Ravens Give Wings The Mid-MO Ravens alumni chapter was established in 2006 by a group of loyal supporters, alumni, parents, families, and friends of St. Benedict s, Mount St. Scholastica, and Benedictine College. From the very beginning it was a goal of the club to create a scholarship fund to support local students. Our members each have their own unique story of how Benedictine College touched his or her life, said Joe Crider, 86, of Jefferson City, Mo. It is our goal to expand and increase our support over time as our scholarship fund grows. Since the scholarship was established in 2008, members have continued to make annual gifts to the Mid-MO Raven Scholarship fund. Over the years, the group has invested more than $50,000 in the fund and doubled the number of scholarships they can offer to area students. We realize the financial sacrifice and hardships faced by many families from this area, both in the days when we attended Benedictine and the present day, said Crider. If our scholarship can make the difference for students to attend Benedictine, then we believe we have given them the greatest opportunity of their educational and spiritual career. Ravens fly together! The Mid-Mo Ravens is an alumni group based in Jefferson City, Missouri. They welcome anyone who lives in the mid-missouri area or who has connections to the area to be members. For more information, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at Benedictine College, Siblings Scholarship Surprise The late John L. Schmiedeler, 52, was very well remembered for his career as an educator and a coach when he passed in December His former students, ball players, SBC teammates, and classmates showed their appreciation for his influence in their lives with an outpouring of memorial gifts to Benedictine College. His children were touched by the generosity and support shown as well as realized that their parents, John and Rosemary Kinsella Schmiedeler, 52, were well loved in the Benedictine community where they met more than 60 years ago. It was this outpouring of love that prompted John and Rosemary s daughters to combine gifts from friends with their own gifts to create an endowed scholarship at Benedictine College to remember their father and to celebrate their mother s 82nd birthday in November John s youngest daughter, Kathleen Howe, said, Given our father s love for and life-long commitment to both Benedictine and our mother, my sisters and I could think of no better way to celebrate our mother s birthday than surprising her with the announcement of the John L. Schmiedeler Scholarship. It seemed the perfect gift and most appropriate way to memorialize our father s legacy. According to Howe, her father never forgot the sisters, priests, and brothers within the religious communities of St. Benedict s and Mount St. Scholastica, who not only provided him with the chance to earn his education with the support of scholarships, but who also continued to support him and his family spiritually throughout his career and life. 9

11 Benedictine College Fall 2013 Where There s a Will, There s a Why From the Executive Director of Alumni & Donor Relations, Tim C. Andrews, 88 My wife Lisa and I were planning a trip with friends a few years ago. We were looking forward to getting away for a few days and letting our five children get away from us truly a win-win situation. Everything was arranged and we were ready to go. It turned out that not everything was arranged, according to my dear mother. She informed us, in not-so-uncertain terms, that we would not be going on the trip until our will was complete. We had arranged someone to watch the kids while we were gone, but not while we were you know GONE. A 2012 article in Forbes reported that 70% of Americans don t have a will; stunning, to say the least. We were in that 70% I m afraid to say. We just kept putting it off. What motivates someone to get their will done? For us it was my dear mother. Are you in that 70%? Just ask yourself, what are you waiting for? There is an old adage in planned giving, that there are three destinations for your estate: family, charity, or the U.S. government. You get to pick two. If you want the first two, you need to plan. The process, it turns out, was pretty easy. Getting past the first hurdle was the hardest part deciding to get it done. We had a few questions: Who would take care of our kids? What charities might we include? Who could help us do this? What is the story of your life? What, in the world you leave behind, can you help preserve or change? A bit existential, I know, but just a starting point. As you think about these questions, consider whether Benedictine College can be woven within your answers. I hope it can. I am here to assist you by being a resource as you go through this process. My job is to educate, consult and collaborate with you through the process. If you decide to include Benedictine College in your estate plan, I can help you align your goals and aspirations within the mission of the College. Lisa and I completed our will and we had a great trip. Benedictine College, I am proud to say, is a part of our plan. It is a good feeling to have that checked off our list; it was the right thing to do. Not sure? Just ask your mother. Please contact me to begin the discussion. I am here to help you any way I can.

12 Benedictine College Fall 2013 Ravens, Class of Not Very Long Ago Young Alumni Spotlight After being out of college for several years, I was really missing that connection to Benedictine College. I was looking for a way to connect with other young alumni in the Kansas City area and also to give back to Benedictine College because of what it has given me. - Meghan Kelly McEvoy, 09 It has only been four years since Meghan (Kelly) McEvoy graduated from Benedictine College. Now, the Class of 2009 grad is doing her part to give back and ensure opportunities for other young alumni to stay connected to their Alma Mater. She is the chair of the Kansas City Benedictine College (KCBC) Young Alumni Committee. Meghan got involved because Benedictine has been such an important part of her life. After being out of college for several years, I was really missing that connection to Benedictine College, she said. I was looking for a way to connect with other young alumni in the Kansas City area and also to give back to Benedictine College because of what it has given me. Meghan finds it hard to pick a favorite aspect of her Benedictine College education. She lists: playing on the basketball team, meeting my wonderful husband, making lifelong friends, receiving a top-rate education, deepening my Catholic faith, and frankly having the time of my life. Like many Ravens, she says, no words or description can fully capture what it is that I love about Benedictine. It is more of a feeling. And it is a feeling I hope to keep alive through my participation in the KCBC Young Alumni group. Young alumni can give back in more ways than one, and the Kansas City group provides an excellent avenue to doing just that. Giving back sends a strong message of support for Benedictine College as an institution. It conveys satisfaction with your academic experience, and shows a desire to provide today's students the same opportunities you were afforded. Although some young alumni may not be in a position to give a monetary donation, says Meghan, stewardship through service, prayer, and even social events is just as significant. It is important to keep in mind that regardless of its size, every gift matters. She believes that one of the best reasons to get involved is to have fun. I have a great time even just at our committee meetings. And for careerminded young alumni, it certainly does not hurt to get involved in an organization and give back to the community. The fun and fellowship are an added bonus. Meghan encourages all Benedictine College young alumni to get involved. Come to a meeting or an event and see what it s all about. Reconnect with your Benedictine roots and your Raven family. We cannot wait to see you. Young alumni play an important role in Benedictine College s continued growth and success. If you are a Benedictine College graduate of the last decade, then you are considered one of our young alumni. If you would like to get involved with the young alumni group, contact: Andi DuPré, or

13 Benedictine College Fall 2013 Hitting the Target in a Storm Target s Top Intern Was A Raven Benedictine College donors often ask if their investments in the college, whether it is through academic scholarships, department programs or the general fund are making a difference for recent graduates. Are students proactive in seeking internships and acceptance into graduate programs? Are they finding jobs after graduation? Are they making a memorable mark in their communities? For Zach Reichenberger 14, a Benedictine College business management major, completing an internship at Target this past summer was all about making himself memorable. When the Target District Team Manager came to the Derby, Kansas, store where Reichenberger had worked as a store manager for the past 10 weeks of his summer break, Reichenberger gave him a fresh look at what a Benedictine College student could offer the discount store chain. Reichenberger, who is the president/ CEO of Benedictine College s Student International Business Council (SIBC) and has been a ROC leader, sophomore vice president of the Student Government Association, student ambassador, member of the student alumni committee, and a student worker in the college business office, thought he had all the answers to leading a team, but he said the Target internship quickly showed him his strengths and weaknesses. He wasn t surprised when he was told he demonstrates accountability and execution, and that he relates well to others, but the position really tested his resilience and adaptability. I m used to making sure everything is the best, and that doesn t always work well in retail, said Reichenberger. He had an unexpected lesson in crisis management when a big storm in Wichita ripped off the front doors and knocked out the power in the Derby-based Target. Reichenberger was responsible for getting the front boarded up, customers rerouted to a side entrance, and disposing of the perishable merchandise that was ruined when the coolers lost power. He learned that he had to think of everything from retail grocery items and medications in the pharmacy to employees food in the break room refrigerators. It was intense. They really expected you to know everything, said Reichenberger. Knowing everything is what landed Reichenberger a job offer at one of the nation s largest discount-store chains when he graduates from Benedictine College in May During his walk-through with the District Team Manager, Reichenberger took time to introduce every member of his Derby store team, describe their responsibilities, and explain how they helped him during his internship. Not only was the manager impressed, but his temporary co-workers were surprised and delighted to receive the accolades. Retention is the biggest issue. I told them that people don t leave companies, people leave people, said Reichenberger, I invested in each of them as a person. I not only knew their names, but I knew their kids names and what their grandchildren were doing. I knew them, and I treated them well, and they in turn worked harder for me. Reichenberger has nothing but enthusiasm for the internship and the company. This internship was so good I would recommend it to everyone, he said. Benedictine, as a college, forms you as a person, and I felt that Target did the same thing for me. Reichenberger s job offer with Target will begin in June 2014, after graduation, where he ll complete a six-week training program before being assigned to a store as an assistant manager. Reichenberger is one of more than 1,700 Benedictine College students who feel the impact of donor support by the caliber of faculty the college attracts, to the quality of department programs, and the availability of the latest technology and equipment. Every gift matters and makes a difference in the education for every student on campus.

16 BENEDICTINE COLLEGE DONOR REPORT TABLE OF CONTENTS: New Donors, 18 Donors by Class Year, 19 THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Donors by Dollar Amount, 29 Faculty and Staff, 45 Endowment Gifts, 46 In Memory Of, 47 In Honor Of, 49 Organizations, 50 Matching Gifts, 51 Consecutive Year Donors, 51 President s Circle, 53 Cornerstone Society, 53 Summit Society, 54 Legacy Society, 56

17 Your generosity From the President, Stephen D. Minnis, 82 We produce many reports in the course of a year at Benedictine College, but none tells a better story about the strength of the college than the donor report. Each name in this booklet is a unique story of a life touched by Benedictine College, and allowing more lives to be inspired and changed. We can t thank you enough for what you do. Because of the strength of this donor report, our other reports show plenty of strength, too. We have enrolled the largest freshman class in history and our highest-achieving freshman class in memory. In the national SSI survey judging student satisfaction, Benedictine College was ahead of the national average in 11 of 12 categories, and virtually tied in the 12th. Our students care more about academics than the national average, and are more satisfied with their teachers, courses, and advising. Benedictine College swept the HAAC Commissioner s Academic Awards by receiving all four awards: highest GPA for the women s sports team; highest GPA for the men s sports team; highest GPA for a female athlete (Elizabeth Stinson, 13); and highest GPA for a male athlete (Brad Lorang, 13). The names you read in this book make our incredible success possible, and that translates into some names you won t find in this book yet. Katie Bachkora, 12 and Michael Rowland, 12, recent graduates, are a great story of Benedictine College community. They were leaders in Raven athletics, took advantage of our new majors (Katie is now a KU Med nurse and Michael is a Burns & McDonnell engineer), and found love, getting married last summer. Katherine Bauman is a great story of faith. She is a junior at Benedictine College who read the first reading at World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro with Pope Francis for three million people. The reason she was there: She spent summer vacation time serving the poor in South America. Tricia Walz, 13 and Katherine Corbella, 13, biochemistry majors, are a great scholarship story. They each won First Place awards at separate chemistry forums for their research on antibiotic resistant superbugs. I want to thank each and every one of you for doing so much for our students. It s a Great Time to Be a Raven, 17
