New Mosbacher Memoir Released
In the foreword to “Going to Windward: A Mosbacher Family Memoir,” President George H.W. Bush writes this about Washington and Lee alumnus Bob Mosbacher: ” made life in Houston, life in Washington — life, period — more enjoyable and meaningful for Barbara and me than mere words can describe. Simply put, we hate to think where we would be without him.”
Bob Mosbacher died in January of complications from pancreatic cancer. A member of the Class of 1947 and the Law School Class of 1949, Bob received an honorary degree from the University in 1984.
The new book was just released this fall by the Texas A&M University Consortium Press. It was formally introduced at an event held at the George Bush Presidential Library earlier this month, when President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, attended the program, which featured Bob’s widow, Mica Mosbacher, his son, Robert A. Mosbacher Jr., and Texas First Lady Anita Perry, among others.
Bob served as the 28th U.S. Secretary of Commerce under the first President Bush and was an accomplished oilman who founded Mosbacher Energy Co. He was also a powerful Republican fund-raiser and a champion amateur sailor. The George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University named the Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics and Public Policy in his honor.
In his memoir, which he wrote with James G. McGrath, Bob noted his decision to attend W&L. Having attended prep school in the Northeast, Bob wrote, “my thoughts turned more toward going to a southern school.” But he also wanted to attend a school with a calendar that would allow him to compete in a major yachting event, the Long Island International Class series, since he thought had a good chance to win the overall championship.
He told the placement officer at Choate, his high school, that he was looking for a “warm-climate university.” The placement officer named three schools: Tulane, Duke and W&L. “I was intrigued , and once I learned more about the school, its location, and its size I decided to go there…. In the end, I lost the International Class title — but by deciding for Washington and Lee, I gained something far more precious.” He’s referring to Jane Pennypacker, his first wife, who died of leukemia in 1970.
Campaign Priorities and Report Cards
The renovation of the Colonnade is a big part of the $500 million capital campaign that the University announced earlier this week. And a key factor in the renovation is the environmentally sensitive way in which we are conducting it.
Followers of the annual College Sustainability Report Card will have noticed that while Washington and Lee’s grade improved this year to B from last year’s C+, the University did not report any buildings that had received certification under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program. That was the case even though we’ve been boasting that both of our most recent projects, Newcomb Hall’s restoration and Hillel House, were LEED projects.
In fact, Mike Carmagnola, chief facilities officer, says we do expect both of these projects to receive LEED certification, but the paperwork to complete the LEED scoreboard is still underway. Since we got a C last year on the Green Building component of the Sustainability Report Card even without the two LEED buildings, chances are good that all our hard work on various sustainability initiatives will continue to pay off. Next up for an environmentally sensitive restoration and eventual LEED certification: Payne Hall. Work on that project is underway.
Meantime, the largest single component of the campaign is to raise $160 million for need-based financial aid so that qualified students can attend regardless of financial circumstances. The work already done in this area and the University’s overall financial stewardship were recognized this week when Kiplinger came out with its annual list of best values among private institutions and placed W&L fourth among liberal arts colleges.
W&L's Mad Man
Big news in the ad world yesterday centered on a Washington and Lee alumnus. Andrew Keller, a 1992 graduate, has been named the CEO of Crispin Porter & Bogusky, one of the country’s premier ad agencies.
Andrew has been creative director for the company and was responsible for overseeing ad campaigns for big global clients like Microsoft, Burger King and Kraft. He started out as an art director in 1998 and has steadily moved up.
The announcement of the appointment in AdWeek refers to the somewhat unusual path that Andrew has taken — that is, moving up on the creative side rather than the sales side. (Don Draper lives!): “To be sure, Mr. Keller isn’t cut from the same Brooks Brothers suit fabric as many of his peers in CEO posts at other shops in the industry — the majority of whom came up through account management, planning or operations roles. The creative-to-CEO transition is rare, though there are some prominent examples, such as Wieden & Kennedy CEO Dan Wieden, who among other creative feats wrote Nike’s ‘Just Do It’ tagline.”
For his part, Andrew is quoted as saying, “At the very beginning, I felt like I did something different than what the industry teaches us to do … I wasn’t thinking about my book, I was thinking about how to make the agency the best it could be.”
We’ll take a moment here to point out that Andrew was an English major at W&L. And to congratulate him.
New Names for the Benefactors' Wall
In 1983, when the University created the Honored Benefactors’ Wall in Washington Hall, the idea was to include the names of those individuals whose gifts to Washington and Lee had exceeded $1 million. The wall contained 15 names when it was first unveiled.
Last Thursday, Oct. 21, the University added six more names during a ceremony as part of the Board of Trustees’ meeting in Lexington. That brought the number of donors on the wall to 109.
In his remarks during the event, W&L President Ken Ruscio noted that, starting with George Washington’s 1796 gift to Liberty Hall, the University has stories — “almost legends, really” — about the difference that individuals’ philanthropy has meant over the years.
The newest names on the wall:
- John and Ruth Huss. John is a 1965 law graduate. In 2008, the Husses gave significant support to the new third-year law program by establishing the Huss Challenge.
- Hap and Brooke Stein. Hap is a 1974 W&L graduate. He and Brooke have established the Martin and Brooke Stein Professorship, one of the more than 35 endowed professorships.
- Tom and Callen McJunkin. Tom is a double-degree holder, 1970 undergraduate and 1974 law. Among other initiatives, the McJunkins established the McJunkin Endowment for Student Engagement.
New Award for Nobel Laureate Joseph Goldstein '62
Washington and Lee alumnus Joseph Goldstein along with his longtime collaborator Michael Brown has been named winner of the inaugural Earl and Thress Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
The two scientists won the 1985 Nobel Prize in Medicine and the National Medal of Science in 1988 for their pioneering work concerning the regulation of cholesterol metabolism — work that led to the development of statin drugs, the cholesterol-lowering compounds in use today.
The Brown/Goldstein laboratory at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas is unique in medical research because it has been supervised jointly by two scientists for 33 years. According to the lab’s website, the laboratory is devoted to solving a fundamental problem: how do animals regulate the synthesis of cholesterol and other lipids so as to maintain constant membrane composition?
A 1962 graduate of W&L and an honorary degree recipient in 1986, Joe is a past president of the American Society for Clinical Investigation and belonged to the Governing Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He also served as chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and is a member of the boards of trustees of The Rockefeller University and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Alumna Honored by New York City YWCA
Megan Taylor, a member of Washington and Lee’s Class of 1996, will be honored next month at the YWCA of New York City’s 37th Annual Salute Luncheon.
Megan, chief operating officer of private wealth management in the Investment Management Division (IMD) of Goldman, Sachs & Co., will join the Academy of Women Leaders Class of 2010 during the luncheon on Nov. 5.
The YWCA-NYC Academy of Women Leaders (AWL) is a distinguished network of nearly 3,000 women whose companies and organizations have chosen to recognize women for their leadership, achievement and contributions to their companies, institutions and communities. The AWL dates back to 1973, and anywhere from 40 to 70 honorees are inducted every year. New honorees are spotlighted in the “Salute Journal” and the New York Times.
Megan serves on the IMD Divisional COO Committee, the IMD New Products Committee, the IMD Business Practices Committee and the IMD Strategic Infrastructure Committee. She also chairs the Private Wealth Management Risk Committee.
Megan is the senior female sponsor of the IMD Women’s Network, which provides career development, networking and training opportunities for women across the division. Megan is also IMD’s Summer Women’s and Diversity Champion, assisting the division in the recruitment and retention of new analysts and associates.
Charting a Diverse Course for the Law
Formed in May 2009, the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) held its first annual meeting in Washington earlier this month. Its first executive director, Washington and Lee alumnus Robert J. Grey Jr., of the Law Class of 1976, concluded that the higher-than-expected attendance showed how important the new initiative is to the profession.
“This attendance level is hard evidence of the importance that the leaders of the preeminent legal organizations in the country assign to this task of advancing legal diversity,” Robert said in a a story on the LCLD website. “And the attendance is especially noteworthy since general counsel and managing partners themselves had to be in attendance and could not send substitutes. In fact, we were very strict in enforcing that.”
The conference was titled “OPEN,” with the four letters standing for “Obligation, Power, Engagement, Now.” LCLD’s self-stated vision is “to significantly advance diversity and inclusion in our profession.”
Robert, a partner with Hunton and Williams, in Richmond, Va., and former president of the American Bar Association, discussed the LCLD’s work and the state of diversity in the profession in a question-and-answer article in the “AmLaw Daily.” You can read his remarks here.
IFC, Panhel Underwrite Community Fun
In Lexington, Fridays are alive in the summer. That’s because of a series of concerts that the Lexington-Rockbridge Jaycees host in W&L’s Davidson Park.
As a result of the series, the Jaycees recently announced a $10,000 donation to three local charities — the Blue Ridge Autism and Achievement Center (BRAAC), the Rockbridge SPCA and the Rockbridge Relief Association (RARA). And Washington and Lee gets credit for a big assist.
Not only did W&L make Davidson Park available for the events on those lazy Friday evenings last summer, but both the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council sponsored them, to the tune of $500 — another instance of W&L student organizations’ engagement in the Lexington community.
Honors for Tom Wolfe '51
To the surprise of no one, Washington and Lee alumnus Tom Wolfe ’51 was named one of literature’s 10 best-dressed authors by Flavorpill, a culture guide for New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and London. Here’s what the Flavorwire wrote:
“The ‘man in white’ has perhaps the most idiosyncratic style, having, since 1962, never made a public appearance without being decked out in a bright white suit that is seemingly exempt from the effects of bad weather (either that or Wolfe has the world’s greatest dry-cleaner). As someone who has chronicled co-eds, astronauts, electric acid-testers, and Masters of the Universe, this Southern Gentleman seems to embrace the philosophy shared by many of his characters: wear what makes you identifiable as part of a unique subculture.”
Joining Tom on the list were, among others, Edmund Spencer, Edith Wharton, William S. Burroughs and Jane Austen.
It wasn’t Tom’s white suits that got him another honor; it was his work on behalf of New York’s Upper West Side. Tom and his wife, Sheila, are being recognized as one of “three families who have gone beyond the call of duty on behalf of the Upper West Side … and beyond.” Landmark West: The Committee to Preserve the Upper West Side will present the award on Dec. 14 at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw will serve as master of ceremonies.
Tom has written three New York Times op-eds (here is the link to one) about the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, which is charged with administering the city’s Landmarks Preservation Law. Two years ago, the New York Observer had a Q&A with Tom about his role in the preservation issues.
W&L Law Alum Named Volunteer of the Year
Kevin White, a 2004 graduate of the School of Law, has received the Pro Bono Clearinghouse Volunteer Service Award from the Greater Richmond Bar Foundation.
Kevin is an associate in the Richmond office of Kaufman & Canoles, where he practices corporate and public finance law. According to the announcement, Kevin provided 58 hours of pro bono work in 2009, with services valued at $14,500.
One of Kevin’s clients is the Elegba Folklore Society, which promotes African and African-American culture and is developing a heritage trail in Richmond related to slavery. Kevin has licensed intellectual property for the society.
He also has worked with Gateway Homes, which develops residential programs for mentally ill adults. He is now set to join Gateway’s board of directors.
Congratulations to Kevin.
End of an Era in Fredericksburg
Josiah P. Rowe III, a member of Washington and Lee University’s Class of 1948, is retiring from 60-plus years in the family business: newspapers. On Oct. 14, the Fredericksburg (Va.) Free Lance-Star announced that he will retire at the end of the year and become publisher emeritus.
Joe and his brother Charles (W&L Class of 1945 and 1950 Law) began their journalism careers in the 1930s by delivering the Free Lance-Star. The pair became co-publishers in 1949, after their father, who owned the paper, died. Joe has been publisher and president since 1998. The company also owns a handful of radio stations under the name Star Radio Group, as well as the new Print Innovators.
With the opening of the printing business, Joe told his paper that “it’s the right time to turn the operations over to the next generation.” It’s still all in the family, however, as his son-in-law Nicholas J. Cadwallender is taking over as publisher.
Among many civic commitments, Joe also has served as the mayor of Fredericksburg, on the local school board and as president of the Virginia Press Association. With such a career under his belt, it’s no surprise that he is a member of the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame. Earlier this year the Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters presented him with the prestigious Robert Gallimore Distinguished Service Award.

Another Emmy for Nicole
Although it won’t exactly qualify as an acceptance speech, Washington and Lee alumna Nicole Mooradian did have a brief and heartfelt response to the news that she had won an Emmy Award from the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Nicole tweeted: “Holy crap I just won another Emmy.”
A key word there is “another.” In fact, Nicole has won an Emmy in each of the two years since she graduated from W&L in 2008. Both of the awards came when she was working for Internet Broadcasting Systems in Phoenix, which is the web publisher for KPHO-TV. She was the web news editor for KPHO.com.
She received her first Emmy, in 2009, as part of a KPHO team that produced KPHO’s Assault on Arizona series. The Emmy in the Advanced Media–Investigative category was for the web component of the series.
The latest Emmy was in the Investigative category for a series on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s abuse of power. One of the elements of the web component that Nicole developed was a Who’s Who of Arpaio’s targets.
Nicole left Phoenix in April and now lives in Los Angeles, where she does works on projects for the Los Angeles Times and does freelance web production, development and maintenance for several local companies.
It's Only Natural
Boyle Investment Co., a Memphis-based real estate investment company with Washington and Lee connections, made headlines recently by donating 290 acres of land to the Wolf River Conservancy. The non-profit land trust, based in Memphis, is charged with conserving and enhancing the Wolf River corridor and watershed as a sustainable natural resource.
Bayard Boyle Jr., a 1958 graduate, is the chief executive officer of Boyle Investment Company while Paul Boyle of the Class of 1991 is executive vice president and first executive manager of the company. Bayard’s father and two uncles founded in 1933.
According to stories in the Memphis media about the gift, Bayard Boyle Sr. originally bought the land 35 years ago. The land is reportedly worth $2 million, and the gift was the largest in value in the 25-year history of the Wolf River Conservancy. The area will now be designated as the Boyle Preserve in Bayard Boyle Sr.’s honor and “will permanently conserve the natural habitat for the abundant wildlife on the site, including deer, turkey and many species of birds.”
In one of the articles about the gift, Bayard Jr. said: “We’re donating it because it’s a valuable natural area that has really beautiful trees and old oxbow lakes, and it fits in with the Wolf River Greenway Conservancy plan.”
Bayard Jr. joined the company in 1960 and became president in 1971. In 1986, he assumed the role of chairman. Paul joined the firm in 1992. He reviews the operation of Boyle’s land, residential, office and retail departments, and provides extensive financial analysis of partnership and joint venture structures and projects.
Dreaming Big with a Blog
Shaun Devlin, a member of Washington and Lee’s Class of 2014, is one of 10 first-year students from around the country selected by the Center for Student Opportunity (CSO) to share their college experiences through an online diary. With her selection as a blogger, Shaun receives a CSO Opportunity Scholarship of $1,000 a year for four years.
Like the other nine students blogging for CSO, Shaun is the first in her family to attend college. She is from Plano, Texas, and graduated from the Culver Academies in Indiana.
Shaun, who plans to major in politics and Spanish, writes in the introduction to her blog that “I have never had the full financial or emotional support of my family. It’s a difficult realization that those who are closest to you are unable or unwilling to help you achieve your dreams. I hope that in attaining the CSO Opportunity Scholarship, I can set an example that, with determination and positive thinking, it is always possible to beat the odds and prove yourself successful in the path YOU choose.”
“Shaun is a shining example of how to turn college dreams into reality,” said Matt Rubinoff, CSO’s executive director. “We hope that this blog helps the hundreds of thousands of under-served, low-income students understand that the opportunity for college is within reach.”

Remember Fort Gregg
Visitors to the West Virginia Book Festival in Charleston this coming weekend will have the opportunity to hear Washington and Lee alumnus John J. Fox III, a 1981 graduate, discuss his latest book on the Civil War, “The Confederate Alamo: Bloodbath at Petersburg’s Fort Gregg.” John’s presentation is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, at 11:30 a.m. at the Charleston Civic Center.
A history major at W&L, John has written several books and articles on the Civil War. His latest chronicles events at Fort Gregg on April 2, 1865, and was released to commemorate the 145th anniversary of the battle at which a handful of Confederate soldiers made a desperate last stand at the fort.
Saturday’s Charleston Gazette featured a condensed excerpt from the book, in which John described how the 12th West Virginia Infantry helped to take Fort Gregg and Petersburg, Va., which led to the fall of Richmond and the end of the war.
John’s first book, “Red Clay to Richmond: Trail of the 35th Georgia Infantry Regiment,” won two awards — the 2005 James I. Robertson Jr. Literary Prize for Confederate History and the 2006 Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board Award, given by the Georgia Secretary of State.
When he’s not conducting research or writing, John is a pilot for American Airlines. He and his family live in Winchester, Va.
Music and Medicine
Dr. Quinn Peeper, a member of the Washington and Lee Class of 1982, is an ob-gyn with a busy practice in New Orleans. He also has a flourishing musical career. He and partner Michael Harold are well known around New Orleans for their piano performances. They are bringing their talents to Quinn’s alma mater on Friday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m., for a recital at Wilson Hall. The duo will play selections from Handel, Mozart and Murkowski, plus Chopin, in commemoration of that composer’s birth 200 years ago.
When he was a student at W&L, Quinn accompanied the glee club. He went on to obtain an M.A. from Oxford and his M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He did his OB/GYN residency at Cornell.
The concert is sponsored by the Lexington branch of the English-Speaking Union (ESU). Quinn serves as president of the New Orleans chapter of the ESU. Tickets are available at the door or at Cocoa Mill Chocolate, in Lexington.
Secretariat's W&L Connection
With the Oct. 8 debut of the movie “Secretariat,” Washington and Lee is proud to note that Christopher Chenery, a member of the Class of 1909, owned The Meadow–the Virginia stable that bred and raced the famous Triple Crown winner.
When he was growing up in Ashland, Va., Chenery would walk several miles to a relative’s horse farm in nearby Doswell so he could learn more about his favorite animals. After earning a B.S. in engineering from W&L, he went on to careers as an engineer and then as a successful and wealthy utilities executive. In 1936, once he had earned the wherewithal to finance his passion for Thoroughbred racehorses, he bought the very farm in Doswell that had belonged to his relative and established The Meadow. There he bred many fine and famous horses, which together won more than $8.5 million on the track between 1939 and 1972.
By the late 1960s, Chenery was ill and unable to continue at the helm of The Meadow, so his daughter, Penny Chenery (then known as Penny Tweedy), took his place. The movie tells her compelling story, that of a woman who had been filling the roles of housewife, mother and volunteer before she transformed herself into an expert on horseracing and saved the family business. While she had many able human accomplices in this daunting task, two racehorses gave her considerable help: Riva Ridge, who won two legs of the Triple Crown in 1972, and Secretariat, who won all three of the races in 1973.
In the famous photo above (courtesy of Secretariat.com), he is winning the Belmont Stakes by an astounding 31 lengths and setting a world record that still stands. Secretariat spent 16 years at stud in Kentucky, and died 21 years ago this week.
The Roanoke Times ran . Christopher Chenery’s granddaughter, Kate Chenery Tweedy, has co-authored with Leeanne Meadows Ladin a new book about the family and the farm, “Secretariat’s Meadow.” And Julie Campbell, associate director of communications and public affairs at W&L, recently published “The Horse in Virginia: An Illustrated History.” All three of the authors are quoted in the Roanoke Times story.
Here on campus, the trophy case in Doremus Gym contains The Meadow silks (the shirt worn by the jockey), a color image of Secretariat and other Chenery and Meadow souvenirs.
Oh, and one more thing—when you watch the movie, or videos of Secretariat’s actual races, note the colors of his jockey’s silks. They are blue and white, in honor of Chenery’s alma mater.
The Art of Diplomacy
When Grace W. Shelton, the U.S. consul general to Bermuda and the first woman to serve in that post, planned an art exhibition for her official residence, she focused on contemporary, American female artists depicting natural settings. One member of that select group of 11 is Staunton, Va., artist Patricia Piorkowski Hobbs, who also happens to be the associate director and curator of Washington and Lee’s University Collections. Pat worked with the State Department’s Road.” The monotype, “Cowpasture,” is depicted here.
“As an art historian, I am interested in all types of artwork,” Pat wrote in the exhibition’s brochure. “As a painter and printmaker, however, I gravitate to landscape, both rural and urban, as subject matter.” She usually paints locations in Staunton and Augusta County, but during the summer she works at a camp on the Cowpasture River. The three pieces in Bermuda flowed from that location and inspiration. You can see some of Pat’s other work here.
Consul General Shelton writes that Pat’s landscapes “are imbued with a sense of serenity, reminding me of leisurely Sunday drives.” The exhibition hangs in Cedarhurst, the consul general’s official residence, in Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda.
The ART in Embassies Program, which began in 1963, encompasses more than 3,500 original works of art loaned by U.S. citizens. The art by Pat Hobbs and her fellow American artists graces the public rooms of 200 U.S. embassy residences and diplomatic missions around the world.
All that Jazz for Photographer Patrick Hinely '73
Washington and Lee photographer Patrick Hinely, Class of 1973, is one of three artists whose work is on display at WVTF-FM’s gallery in Roanoke this month.
When he’s not photographing events at his alma mater, Patrick is pursuing his other passion, photographing jazz musicians. He made the images in this show between 1974 and 2007. They were published as a calendar book in 2007, by the German Jazzprezzo imprint of Nieswand Verlag.
An open house at WVTF on Friday, Oct. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m., will feature live music by the Star City Harp Ensemble and refreshments from Center Stage of Rocky Mount. The studios, offices and gallery of the National Public Radio affiliate are at 3520 Kingsbury Lane in Roanoke. The exhibition runs through Oct. 29. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
One of Patrick’s striking images from the exhibition is reproduced here. It’s a 1988 shot of Sun Ra’s Arkestra in performance at Lime Kiln in Lexington.
Life is a Stage for Beach Vickers
Beach Vickers, a 1972 W&L graduate, told the Charleston Gazette recently that he used to stage plays for neighborhood kids on his grandmother’s back porch in nearby Montgomery, W.Va. Admission was 5 cents, and the cast almost always included a couple of dogs.
Beach, a journalism major and former newspaperman, is now living in Los Angeles, where he works for Universal Studios Digital Services at NBC Universal Studios. He still acts and directs, though, and he was back in West Virginia recently to direct the Kanawha Players’ production of “Lil’ Abner,” where he had some dogs and a pig back on stage for old times’ sake.
In the years since W&L, Beach’s career has taken lots of twists and turns, as he illustrates on his website. Theater has been a big part of his life ever since those makeshift performances on his grandmother’s porch. One of his W&L memories is performing “Alfred” in the Theater Department’s production of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,” which had a brief run off-off-off Broadway in New York.
Beach is now working on a proposed travel series for public television, “The Mountaineer Traveler,” which promotes West Virginia tourism.
Hall of Famers
The Washington and Lee Athletic Hall of Fame inducted its 23rd class last month. Former basketball coach Verne Canfield, former lacrosse player Don Carroll ’76, former football, lacrosse and wrestling athlete Robert Hull ’96, and former soccer, lacrosse and basketball player Karin Treese Bauer ’99 were the four honorees.
• Verne Canfield served as the Generals’ men’s basketball coach for 31 seasons (1965-95), compiling a 460-337 (.557) record. His 460 wins still ranked 39th on the Division III all-time wins list entering the 2009-10 season.
• Don Carroll ’76 was a four-year letterwinner and two-year captain for the lacrosse program, helping the Generals to four straight NCAA Division I Tournament berths, including three appearances in the semifinals.
• Robert Hull ’96 earned four letters as a member of the football team, one as a member of the wrestling team, and participated for two years with the lacrosse team. A three-time First Team All-ODAC and First Team All-State selection in football, Robert made the Division III All-America team three times, including as a first-team pick following his senior season, when he set a school record with 14 sacks.
• Karin Treese Bauer ’99 received four letters with the soccer program, two with the lacrosse team and two with the basketball team. In soccer, Karin was a four-time All-ODAC selection, three-time All-South Region honoree and two-time All-State pick.
You can watch the inductees make remarks at the Hall of Fame banquet:
