2 A Message From The President DR. ALVIN O. AUSTIN President These are exciting days on the LeTourneau University campus! The most exciting happening is the achievement of our $15 million fund-raising goal for the S.E. Belcher, Jr. Chapel and Performance Center, thus qualifying us for the $1 million grant from the Mabee Foundation. On Feb. 16, we celebrated with our Longview area friends our going over the top in this campaign with $15,044,462 received in gifts and pledges, including $2.4 million from our local Longview area campaign. These are all-time record giving levels for a project in fact, more than double any previous project. The construction drawings have been completed, and we will receive bids within the next several weeks. Given what has occurred in worldwide shortages of steel, lumber and concrete, we are fairly certain that real costs will exceed our earlier projections. Our plan will be to award contracts and break ground this spring, knowing that we will still have some remaining fundraising to do during the construction phase. But we praise God for His blessings and the generous support of so many of our friends. While the Belcher Chapel and Performance Center project has captured so much attention, we should not forget that we have a new $7 million, 160-bed residence hall that is under construction with a planned mid-summer completion. For more than a decade we have not had a time when we were not planning, constructing or opening a new residence facility to house our growing student population. More praise! And soon we will break ground on a smaller project, the Martin Donner Engine Test Facility for our aeronautical science program. But, what is truly exciting at LeTourneau University is not in the building of new buildings, it is what happens within the buildings and on the grounds of the university and our outlying educational centers around the state of Texas that really matters. LeTourneau University is in the life changing business and it is through the transforming power of knowledge, real-world experiences and a personal relationship with Christ Jesus that the real mission of the university is accomplished. While books, computers and lab equipment all play a part in this, the heart of our university is in relationships relationships between student and student, student and faculty and staff, student and alumni, students and our community. This issue of NOW focuses on some of the relationships of LeTourneau University. We will walk through the early days of the first-year experiences of Brent Spork Bradbury, a freshman from Houghton, N.Y. We profile the admissions counselors who are often the first voice of LeTourneau to our prospective students. We share about the life of an admired former professor, Martin Donner, who we lost in a tragic accident, but who will now be remembered in the naming of a new aeronautical science engine testing facility. We will share the personal stories of members of one of our MBA classes who gather for a reunion, and we see the continuing loyalty in the lives of 1952 graduate and wife, Howard and Betty Anderson. As I visit with prospective new faculty and staff, I share with them the centrality of their role at the university. The quality and spiritual commitment of the university is not contained within the brick and mortar of buildings, in the words of our catalog or in the music played on the university carillon. Important as these might be, they only play host to the people who make up the institution the students, faculty, staff and the Board, alumni and friends of the university. LeTourneau University is PEOPLE and the relationships that flow forth from them! 2 DR. AUSTIN NOW LETOURNEAU UNIVERSITY SPRING 2005

4 Life Outside The Box

5 Written by: Brent Bradbury Photograph Illustrations by: Tom Barnard There is a difference between thinking outside the box and living outside the box. Besides the obvious chiropractic advantages, living outside the box brings with it the sort of mind-broadening experiences those in higher education constantly talk about. Take, for example, the first week of freshman activities at LeTourneau University. I was fresh off a mind-numbing 1,300-mile trip from Houghton, N.Y. Houghton is a college town surrounded by a community of faculty and staff who are, in turn, surrounded by miles of forested hills, cornfields and dairy farms. The village is sheltered from the precisely paced bustle of the city and becomes an example of natural beauty for the few summer weeks when drab gray clouds are traded for vibrant blue skies. Texas, I discovered, is where the vibrant blue skies migrate when they aren t trying to convince western New Yorkers that the weather isn t that bad. It is also a favorite spot for the sun, which heated up moving day to a toasty 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Armies of sweating professors offered disheartened looks at the tall piles of freshmen luggage as they hauled it from roadside to room. When I told them my room was on the second floor, I scored some unappreciative glares. I would come to find out that my room was on a floor, located in Thomas Hall, that is more commonly referred to as 41. There is a rich history behind the name, which dates back to acquisition of the university property from the U.S. Army by Mr. R.G. LeTourneau himself. Each 41er is assigned a floor name when he is newly arrived. I, after a requisite week of cadence-calling and watermelon football in the pond, was dubbed Spork. It didn t take long for my class work to become consuming. When I told upperclassmen of my chosen majors, engineering and computer science, they nodded silently, brows furrowed. In a melodramatic voice deserving of a reverberating surround-sound effect, 41 er Shroud told me, Many of those greater than you have fallen. Are you sure you can do it? He paused dramatically. Data structures. Software systems. It was as if he were calling spirits. ANALYSIS OF ALGORITHMS! Fog enveloped our feet. Thunder rolled in the distance. Somewhere, a dog barked. I mumbled something about being pretty sure and retreated to my room to ponder my fate. My fate, it turned out, was to help make a helicopter fly itself without mowing down rows of curious onlookers. I came to school with a fair amount of geek knowledge, and in an effort to make myself useful, joined the helicopter effort better known as The Phoenix Project. It s technically a senior design project, but the leadership didn t seem to have a problem with free labor. I was soon elevated from Documentation Ferret to Code Monkey, and now I spend hours slaving away in pursuit of the acquisition and interpretation of GPS data in a binary format. That means in layman terms that I am learning a lot more than I have in any class or project that I have ever been involved with. Not only that, but I can tell people I work on a flying robot. Engineering schools bring with them a unique subset of people students more interested in building stuff than partying. These are students who watch the international space station orbit on NASA-TV, and switch to The History Channel during the boring parts. These are students who, LETOURNEAU UNIVERSITY SPRING 2005 NOW OUTSIDE THE BOX 5

It was this geek camaraderie that brought me here. While at times it spawns some odd wisdom ( You can t swear at your code, man... it s like your offspring! ), the desire to create also spawns the sort of creations that cause people to gawk and ask, What were you thinking? In the interest of the well-being of these people, we generally reply with a sort of verbalized ellipses. Shining examples of 41 s doit-yourself-in-the-lounge-whilekeeping-everyone-awake projects include a Trojan horse, built for Fall Fest, and the transformation of our lounge into a Swiss Family Robinson Christmas. Fall Fest is an annual LeTourneau tradition that occurs for no reason in particular, save perhaps to remind the student body of what season it is, since the climate offers no clues to speak of. The premise is this: Guys residence hall floors elect a queen, and girls residence hall floors elect a king. The floors then promote their monarch according to a theme. Our chosen theme was Helen of Troy. As such, we constructed a 10-foot-tall Trojan horse, and subsequently used it to parade our queen, Kelly of Troy, around campus. Floors are scored according to a final vote combined with points gained in various activities occurring throughout the week. These activities involved a rapidly contrived Italian opera skitthing, a siege of the berm around the Memorial Student Center and, of course, a week of dragging our plywood and cardboard monstrosity around campus. When all was said and done, Kelly of Troy was elected Fall Fest queen, much to our satisfaction. Hoping to outdo ourselves, and in blissful ignorance of the time wasted constructing a mere horse, our Christmas decoration plans called for the entire lounge to become the Swiss family Robinson s tree house. Despite all odds, and enduring a general shortage of free shipping pallets in Longview, we built the thing complete with thatched roofs, running water, a ship s wheel, a draw bridge, a (real, shockingly heavy) floor-toceiling tree trunk and live birds. We then added sound, lights and dry-ice fog. Some people happily giggled, It feels like we re in a real rain forest! Other people just bumped their heads on the bamboo. Too much time indoors, though, will drive anyone batty. Every so often, generally about the time my face starts to burn from my computer monitor s radiation, I take a break and LETOURNEAU UNIVERSITY SPRING 2005

It turns out that West Texas a 12-hour drive from campus is home to the Guadalupe Mountains. It also turns out that with a half-day of planning, a car, some gas money and a whole lot of caffeine, four LeTourneau students can climb to the highest point in Texas. At 8,749 feet, Guadalupe Peak was my highest summit yet, offering a stunning view of the Great Chihuahuan Desert. A far cry from the crowded peaks of the Northeast, I found the range a welcome introduction to the great American West. Living outside the box has thus provided me with an education more broad than could be contained in a classroom, or even four years worth of classrooms. I have, for the first time, met like-minded individuals of equal and greater competence than myself, with respect to computers, of course. In my small town, I was regarded simply as a PC repair dude. Here, I am surrounded by people who understand the applications of computers and programming, but equally significantly, by the resources needed to utilize this knowledge. This atmosphere of knowledge is critical to any effective educational system. And because of it, I have found a home at LeTourneau University. The Phoenix Project, a flying robotic helicopter, has yet to decapitate anyone. A road trip to West Texas was a freshman year high point. NOW OUTSIDE THE BOX 7

10 University to build new Engine Test Facility Written by Amy Halbert Front Elevation Side Elevation LeTourneau University s School of Aeronautical Science will soon have more room to spread its wings as construction is scheduled to begin this spring on the new Martin Donner Engine Test Facility where students can disassemble and reassemble airplane engines. The new building will be named in honor of Martin Donner, the former aeronautical science faculty member who died in a tragic fireworks warehouse accident in July The project had been in the developmental stages for about four years, but started in earnest in 2003 when a member of the aeronautical science advisory committee donated $50,000 in honor of Donner. Responding to that challenge, more than 140 people, including LeTourneau friends, faculty, alumni and students, have made gifts and pledges, totaling more than $150,000. The 2,400-square-foot engine test facility has been designed to improve safety and enhance the learning experience for LETU students. The estimated cost of the new facility is $194,000. It will be located on the Longview campus behind the university s business office and will include: Three large test cells for reciprocating engine testing. An enclosed engine test area complete with control room used to test turbo shaft engines such as the Pratt & Whitney PT-6. Computerized data acquisition hardware and software for both the turbine test room and the reciprocating engine test cells. A storage area to hold engine test stands and other bulky equipment. This new facility will be much more flexible than what we have now, said Fred Ritchey, dean of the School of Aeronautical Science. Every LETU aeronautical science student will use the new facility. Each student in the program is required to take Introduction to Aircraft Reciprocating Engines, in which they disassemble, reassemble and run an aircraft engine. Under the close supervision of their instructor, students work carefully to take an engine apart, piece by piece, taking note of what each part is, what it does and where it goes. When the engine is fully reassembled, it is time to see if their engine runs. Currently, much of the engine testing is performed on an airplane affectionately known as the Snow Goose (it was called the Blue Goose until a paint job necessitated a name change), which has been used by LETU student for nearly 30 years. LETOURNEAU UNIVERSITY SPRING 2005

11 In Memory Martin Donner Floorplan In the new facility, students will use portable stands that will hold the reassembled engines and a laptop computer that will monitor engine performance. Students can roll the stand with engine to the test cell, latch it in place, connect a ground power plug to the stand, and in 10 minutes, the engine should be up and running, Ritchey said. By using a digital data acquisition system and notebook computer, more detailed engine testing can be performed and the data collected can be stored for future reference. We have a unique approach at LETU, said Ritchey. It s a thrilling thing for a student to be able to take an engine down to its basic parts, put it back together again and then run it. Some of these students have never performed even basic maintenance on an engine, so for them to do this is phenomenal. Martin Donner s memory and contribution to the LeTourneau University community will live on through the construction of a new aeronautical science research facility for testing airplane engines, which will be named in his honor. The new Martin Donner Engine Test Facility will ensure that all of us, from our alumni to current students, staff and faculty and those still to come, will remember Marty as a beloved professor and godly role model, said Dr. Alvin O. Austin, LeTourneau University president. Donner was one of three summertime employees of Pyrotechnics by Lamb who died in a fireworks explosion in Kilgore, Texas, July 3, He was a licensed pyrotechnician and had worked for the company during a portion of several summers. Donner was born Aug. 20, 1944, in Elmira, N.Y., where he lived for over 30 years. He earned his private pilot s and soaring certificates in 1967, became a certified airframe and powerplant mechanic in 1971, earned an inspection authorization license in 1974 and qualified as a designated mechanic examiner in He came to LeTourneau University in the fall of 1975 as a mechanic and enrolled in the aeronautical science program. He completed his Bachelor of Science degree at LeTourneau University in 1979 and a Master s of Science degree at University of Texas at Tyler in He was involved with the Federal Aviation Administration s initiative to revise the testing procedures for the airframe and powerplant mechanics licensing. He later became an associate professor of aircraft systems at the university, a position he held for 28 years. He was the faculty sponsor for LAS, the university service society of aeronautical science students. He served the university as Teaching Faculty Organization executive committee from 1997 through Six times he was nominated for Who s Who Among America s Teachers. Before coming to LeTourneau, Donner had been a mechanic and part owner of MPH Aircraft Specialties, Inc. and was an airframe and powerplant mechanic for J & G Aero in Tyler, Texas. Marty truly cared for the people he worked with and the students he taught, said Fred Ritchey, dean of the School of Aeronautical Science. NOW MARTY DONNER 11

15 From the Alumni Office Written by Allison Gardner, Director of Alumni and Parent Relations New Mentor Program I am excited to share with you a new program that we are launching through the Alumni Association. The finishing touches are being applied to a new mentor program in which alumni can share their experience and expertise with younger graduates still trying to establish themselves, and current students who are just beginning to think about life after LeTourneau. If all goes as planned, the new program will launch at the end of March. Our first audience is current aeronautical science students and alumni, and we have plans to expand the program to serve all of the schools at LeTourneau. Wendy Paver ( 94), member of the Aeronautical Science Advisory Council, has been championing this idea for almost a year and has already recruited a number of alumni to serve as mentors in the new program. The purpose of the program is not placement, but help for those coming after you to navigate the development of their careers. Most of the mentoring is designed to occur through or the telephone, and there will be guidelines articulated for the mentor and the mentee. To find out how you can become a mentor, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at ALUM (2586).
