PHOTDGRAPHY BY JOHN T. CDNSDLI
Peer inside the academic buildings of Lebanon Valley College and
it may be a challenge to find a professor lecturing in front of a
room full of students scribbling notes. Instead, professors don
funeral costumes or film 'Videos'' during classes. Students taste
seaweed or help each other struggle through clarinet fingerings.
s college faculty employ innovative teach-
ing methods to reach students, the image
of a professor simply speaking behind a
lectern may soon exist only as a stereotype
and faded memory.
"A generation ago, most college
teaching was done by the lecture method," said Dr. Stephen
MacDonald. dean of the faculty and vice president for
academic affairs. "A faculty member came, stood in front of
a class and adopted a mande of authority. One lee
tured. and students took notes, or at least pretend-
ed to take notes."
Reflecting on his own teaching,
MacDonald said, "Preparing a good lecture is
very hard work... In preparing it, you learn a
The dean said lecturing takes students
a step further away from the original learning
"The students are taking notes on what is already
notes on something else." Like successive audio recordings,
he said, "With each copy, the fidelity begins to suffer."
Such realizations have led toward a trend of using other
teaching techniques in college classrooms.
"I think there was a desire to put more of the learning back
in the hands of the students, so that they became something
more than an audience," MacDonald added, "so that students
are actually doing something intellectuallv alive."
With contemporary approaches, the dean said, professors
are considering a central question: "Is the measure of the
course what I have taught or what they have learned?"
MacDonald stated that the various teaching styles at LVC
stem not from any edict issued by his office, but from the
creative ways professors have devised to help students learn.
"So much of it is collaborative learning today. So much
of it is group work." said Dr. Phylis Dryden, an associate
professor of English.
For example, during a course on advertising she assigns
student groups advertisements from different periods,
including the '60s or '70s, then asks them to look
"It's called the community of learners
now," Dryden explained, then added with a
laugh, "Other students have said, 'She didn't
teach a single lesson all semester.'"
Dryden uses multiple modalities — visual,
auditory and kinesthetic or tactile — to reach
people who learn in different ways.
Sometimes, Dryden uses costumes, including when
she teaches about William Dean Howells' story "Editha."
The story is about an overly sentimental woman who convinces
her fiance to fight in the Spanish-American War, and then
becomes a melodramatic mourner after he is killed.
Dryden comes to class dressed in all black, down to a hat
with a veil and a black hanky. She greets her students: "Hello,
my name is Editha. You'll have to excuse me. I'm not feeling
too well these days. My fiance was killed in the war..."
Dryden said, "After this demonstration, they couldn't
possibly go away thinking Howell was doing anything but
ridiculing her, because I'm ridiculing her."

Botanist Dr. Susan Verhoek has found that one of the best ways to
engage students is bring the natural world into class
"Some people think that what I do is gimmicky. There are
times when it probablv is. There always is a purpose to it,"
Drvden said. "It's a way of talking to them about something
that is really serious, but it sticks in their minds because of
these outlandish costumes."

For many years in his management communica
tions course. Dr. Leon Markowicz has video-
taped students' speeches so they can review
their performance afterward.
"They come into class and see the camera,
and they get all stirred up," said Markowicz, a
professor of business administration.
During the semester, students complete five
presentations tannine; from two to 10 minutes. Some
include question-and-answer sessions and involve computer-
based presentations. Each is captured on video.
"When they see themselves, they need very little commen-
tary from either their colleagues or from me," Markowicz said.
"A lot of students are very surprised at what they see: 'I didnt
know I fidgeted here. I didn't know I pulled at mv necklace.
I didn't realize I said so many urns.' The believing is in
After a speech, the student also receives a feedback sheet
from each classmate listing strengths and suggestions for
"If 10 or 12 of their peers tell them that their right knee is
bending or 'It's distracting when you scratch your ear,' thev
will believe the consensus statements.' Markowicz said. 'Every
student improves. Some improve more than others. Everybody
starts at a different place," Markowicz added. "What happens
is the students take charge of their own speaking. They are in
charge of how they're presenting themselves."

Botanist Dr. Susan Verhoek has found that one of the best
ways to engage students is to bring the natural world into class
— or to take students outside. Verhoek uses visual aids to
demonstrate traits like convergence, when plants tend to look
alike because of their environment. She'll bring along a cactus
from LVC's greenhouse, as well as a milkweed, which looks
similar. Students also do taste tests on plants such as the
seaweed used to make sushi.
Verhoek, a professor of biology, also teaches about differ-
ent types of fruit, helping students to classify them as pome
fruits such as apples and pears or stone fruits peaches and
plums . "Once you've cut open a pineapple, then you must
taste it," Verhoek said, adding that this lab can get mixed
reactions. "Many of the students decide they don't
really like avocadoes."
Verhoek's classes also venture outside Garber
Science Center to Mt. Gretna, where they
identify different wildflowers, or to the
adjacent state game lands to assess what trees
make up that forest. During outings like these.
L\'C students helped field-test a book Verhoek
wrote on spring flowers.
'The laboratories where they look at microscope slides
are not as popular as the ones where they can go out and
walk in the woods." Verhoek said, adding that students
respond best to lessons "when they can actually see what it is
they're trying to learn about, pick it up. turn it over.
In another hands-on learning opportunity. Dr. Mary Pettice,
assistant professor of English, teaches journalism and editing
classes in one of the College's computer labs, where each
student can work on a computer with access to the Internet.
She said students perform the work of actual reporters
during class. They learn the basics of a "news" event, and
then turn around and write a story in the next half-hour.
"They realize when thev go out tor internships or into the
work world that they don't have a week to write a story,"
She said her own experience has shown that learning
these skills is useful even tor people who don't plan to
become journalists. "Being forced to write quickly in some
situations has improved mv writing in all situations, she
Pettice said that in the lab she's able to give students
immediate feedback while they're writing, suggesting that
thev check spelling or rework an articles lead.
"I'm able to catch things." Pettice said, adding that the
computer classroom is helpful "partly because it mimics
the newsroom and partly because 1 can get my hands in

In Introduction to Experimental Psychology, students —
many of whom are not science majors — divide into groups to
design and carry out an experiment. Some of them have
explored when children develop gender identity, how listening
to music affects memory and whether people are likely to con-
form to group opinions. The teams develop a hypothesis and
conduct research to test it.
"Many times thev don't turn out the way students expect
them to," said Dr. Deanna Dodson, assistant professor of
psychology. "I really don't care how the experiment turns out.
What I care about is that they learn the process of doing
•Each group prepares a poster with an abstract summarizing
the experiment, plus sections detailing the methods, graphically
illustrating the data and the conclusions. Dr. Louis Laguna,
assistant professor of psychology, also teaches a class using
the same methods.
At the end of the semester, the posters, along with those
developed by students in Dr. Laguna's section of the course,
are displayed in a hall in Garber Science Center, where other
faculty can look at them and question the teams. The goal is to
introduce non-science students to the practice of presenting
research at a conference.
"I'm sure they do presentations within the context of their
major, but for most of them this is a very different format than
they're used to," Dodson stated. She said the course is meant to
help students better evaluate scientific claims they'll encounter
every day as consumers.
Dr. Jeanne Hey, associate professor of economics, said
that more than any style of teaching, "I think what
probably matters the most is the relationship that I have with
"I know their names; I look them in the eye. They know I
care; they know I'm there for them," said Hey, who at 67 has
six children and 10 grandchildren of her own.
"I can be one of the guys with them, or I can be their
mother, their grandmother...whatever it takes. That's something
I have with them because of my age and experience," she said.
"It's my confidence that I understand young people and
empathize with them, know when to be tough and when to give."
Although Hey said she does use lectures, her classes are also
flexible. She starts each session by asking a student to present
information on a current event relating to business or the
economy, which leads to discussion. "Some days we never get
beyond what the student brought in," said Hey, who is also
chairperson of the department of political science and economics.

In Tom Strohman's woodwinds class, future music teachers
must learn instruments they may never have played before.
"The instruments are put into their hands, and they're
expected to play these things. They're actually mimicking what
it is they're going to have to teach," said Strohman, assistant
professor of music. "They're going to have the same struggles,
trials and tribulations that beginning students will have."
Strohman said he breaks the class into groups of three to
five people, and has a student who is already familiar with the
instrument help the others. "It also gives that particular student
a chance to practice his or her teaching skills," he said.
Strohman also teaches an orchestration class in which stu-
dents learn how music is written. In addition to lectures and
demonstrations by Strohman, it includes assignments for
students: "Here's a melody. Here are six instruments. Arrange it
for me," Strohman said.
As a final project, students write a piece to be played by
the class. Strohman said this forces students to arrange music
specifically with the talent of the performers in mind,
something they'll need to do as teachers.
"There's a difference between how the Philadelphia
Orchestra and Lickdale Elementary Orchestra will sound," said
Strohman, a 1975 Lebanon Valley graduate. "The classroom is
not the only way that teachers in the College teach." With the
school's small size, he pointed out, students can bump into a
professor in the quad and end up in a one-on-one educational
discussion. That type of interaction allows benefits to flow
"Many times I'll be watching a student do something, or
hearing their response, or watching two students work with
each other. I'll learn things," Strohman said. "We all learn
from each other."©

URING NEARLY" TWO
DECADES, FIELD HOCKEY AND
Kathy TlERNEY HAVE BECOME
synonymous at lebanon

place tlerney has headed a

percent WINNING RECORD,
ALONG WITH AVERAGING 1 1 WINS
A SEASON, WINNING DOESN'T
KEEP HER PREOCCUPIED.
"I don't think of success in that way," saysTierney, a 1979 graduate of SUNY
Brockport. "Winning is a reflection of the players who played field hockev.
Success for me is the kind of relationships I've developed and the impact on the
Tierney was a standout player, leading Brockport into the 1978 Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) Championships, a 32-team national
tournament featuring the best schools in the nation.
After earning her bachelor's degree in physical education, she was an assistant
field hockev coach at UMass Dartmouth and at Brown University before arriving
at the Valley prior to the 1983 season. She notes. "Things that were important
to me (back then) were developing a program and working with talented student-
athletes, and we're still attracting them."
The first waves of success started coming in 1988. when the Firing Dutchmen
qualified for the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) plavoffs. LVC advanced to
the championship and beat Elizabethtown College in a 1-0 thriller, marking the
first time a women's team from the Valley had captured a MAC Championship. In
another first, Lebanon Valley qualified for the National Collegiate Athletic
Conference (NCAA) Division III Championships, advancing to the quarterfinals.
Since then, LVC has made it to at least the MAC playoffs every year, though
the next MAC title would wait until 1991. That team tied the school record of
15 wins established bv the 1988 squad. In 1992. the Valley repeated as MAC
Champions, the first sport in school history doin£ so, coupled with a second
NCAA appearance. A third NCAA appearance followed in 1993, with the Valley
using a penalty-stroke shootout victory in advancing to the quarterfinal round.
Since 1995, the Valley has qualified for the NCAA Championships every year,
a feat unmatched in school history. Does she concern herself about the \ alley
capturing a national championship? "To be honored as one of the best teams in
Division III is quite an accomplishment," remarks Tierney. "It's more about the
lust ask several LVC held hockey alumnae.

Sometimes, it's not where you start, but how you wind up.
Arnold certainly learned that as a player. "I wanted to play
forward," remembers Arnold, who played that position at
Chambersburg H.S., "but (Tiernev) turned me into a mid-
fielder, and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it."
Arnold earned eight letters at the Valley, four in field
hockey, one in lacrosse and three in Softball, all with
Tiernev as head coach. "She was new, and she was interest-
ed in me, as a player, and also in my family," she notes.
A two-year co-captain and MVP her junior and senior
years, Arnold guided the Dutchmen to 1 1 wins in 1987, a
record, and became the first All-Amencan selection in team
history, alongside Bryna Vandergrift Leslie '89. "I'm a
competitor. I was part of the developmental process," says
Arnold, who as a senior earned the Kappa Lambda Nu
Award, given to the outstanding female athlete. "I had a lot
of great teammates."
Upon earning her bachelor's degree in mathematics,
Arnold worked several years in insurance sales before
returning to the Valley and earning her secondary educa-
tion certification in 1996. "I loved what I did," she points
out, "but with teaching, I knew I could make a difference."
After teaching for two years in the West Shore School
District, she took time from the classroom for her
family. Inducted into the LVC Athletics Hall of Fame last
year, Arnold has a son and a daughter and lives in New
Cumberland, and continues math tutoring.
Sandra Charles '90, DO.
Much like Arnold, Charles was a multi-sport athlete at
the Vallev, earning four letters each in field hockey and
Softball. However, most importantly, Charles found in
Tierney a coach who knew more about the game, and a
coach who cared about more than the game.
Coming from West Snyder H.S., Charles had plaved
on a team where the coach did not have prior playing
experience or previous coaching experience in field hock-
ey. As such, she relished the idea of Tierney practicing
what she was preaching. "I guess I was actually
impressed by her ability in stickwork," recalls Charles.
Charles was also handling heavy coursework as a
biology/premed major. Fortunately, she discovered in
Tierney someone who appreciated student-athletes and
understood their academic goals and needs. "With labs,
I would come late to practice," she says, "and she was
A two-year starter at forward, Charles kept her game
plan, heading to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic
Medicine and earning her DO. (doctor of osteopathy)
degree in 1994. She runs a family practice in

a son this summer.

Susan Sarisky '92 ~^=~
When she was at the Valley, Sanskv planned on
becoming a teacher. While she has staved in education,
she's never quite left her roots. A Philadelphia native.
Sanskv came to the Yallev not having experienced much
competition. "Coming from the Catholic League, vou
onlv go so far," admits Sariskv, a product of Bishop
"The caliber of plavers was a lot deeper. I'm sure I
took note of that." remembers Sariskv. "It was still a lot
of fun. I was proud of just being on a team." A four-year
letterwmner and starter as a junior, Sariskv earned her
bachelor's degree in psychology and staved around
another semester for her social studies education
certification. She then returned home, planning on
heading into high school teaching.
However, a funnv thing happened on the way: an
opening in 1993 at L\'C for an admission counselor. "I
was psvched," she savs. "That was exactly what I wanted
Sariskv served as an admission counselor until 1998,
when she became student emplcnment coordinator. After
earning her master's degree in education administration
last year from Temple Universitv. she continued as
emplovment coordinator and, this summer, she became
assistant director of financial aid.
So, what's working withTiernev really like? "I was
constantlv in awe of her. She was alwavs looking at
how vou make the most of what vou have going on,"
replies Sariskv, who has learned her lesson well. "It's a real
privilege working with her. She's alwavs good for a laugh."
Alyssa Mowrer Bradfield '95
Onlv seven players in the history of LYC field hockev
have twice earned Ail-American honors. Bradfield is
among them, getting tabbed in 1993 and 1994 as a for-
ward. "She Tiernev came across as being very confident."
recalls Bradfield, coming out of Penn Manor H.S. to the
Yallev. "She was just verv motivating and in touch."
An excellent student as well as a top plaver, Bradfield
earned MAC all-academic honors as a mathematics,
secondarv education major. And. she remembers the
drive to the MAC Championship in 1992 verv well.
LYC was facing Messiah College, which had beaten the
Dutchmen in the regular season.
"After that game." remembers Bradfield about
Tiernev, "she said. Tm going to take this game tape and
figure out how to beat Messiah.' I knew she would come
through. I think if vou give her a challenge, she'll take
it." The team did also, earning a 1-0 shutout for the
MAC Championship. "That was really unusual tor plav-
mg Messiah, scoring early and holding them scoreless
the rest of the way," she says. A four-year starter.
Bradfield established a single-season scoring record, with
25 goals in 1993. and co-captained the team as a senior.
She taught at Cedar Cliff H.S. for four years and.
during the first three, she coached the field hockev team,
becoming the head coach her third season. After that,
she focused on the classroom, eventually taking a teach-
ing position at Elizabethtown H.S.. where she is in her
second year. Bradfield lives in Mavtown, has one son,
and is expecting a second child in February.

'ARES FOR A CRUC
Casey Iezzi '98
The list of AIl-Americans at LVC includes 20 players,
who combined have earned 27 All-American honors.
Iezzi is one of the many who stand out as a true
example of a scholar-athlete.
A native of Bainbridge, Iezzi was coming from
Elizabethtown H.S. where she paced the team to the
Lancaster-Lebanon League title as a senior, scoring the
winning goal in the championship. Still, she knew she
wasn't highly regarded as a player.
"What impressed me was her willingness to find out
what kind of player I was," notes Iezzi. "Kathy made me
feel she was a dedicated and caring coach. Our talks also
boosted my confidence as a hockey player." Iezzi went on
to earn four letters in field hockey and one in track and
That confidence was displayed especially in 1997.
Coming from a school-record 1 6 wins and a trip to the
Division III national semifinals at the College of New
Jersey, LVC knew it was the team to beat. For the first
14 encounters, no team could as the Valley assembled an
undefeated streak of epic proportions, becoming the
top-ranked team in the nation.
However, Messiah defeated the Valley for the
Commonwealth League championship, but that merely
provided for a momentous MAC title rematch at
Messiah in a driving rainstorm on turf.
"Our team knew that we were expected to play out-
side our comfort zone,' to challenge ourselves, to push
beyond our limitations," remarks Iezzi, who scored 1 1
goals that season at forward, "and we beat Messiah that
day 4- 1 on their own field."
Though LVC lost in the national semifinals of the
NCAA Division III Championships, Iezzi was destined
to reap further rewards. On April 23, 1998, she earned
the highest honor a student-athlete can receive, becom-
ing the first in LVC history to receive GTE Academic
All-America honors. That year, she also became the
school's second recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate
Scholarship. Joda Glossner '95, also a former player of
Tierney's, was the first recipient.
Iezzi has continued as a trailblazer, taking her B.A.
degree with an English major ^literature concentration)
and heading to Northern Arizona University this fall
for a master's degree in teaching English as a foreign
language. There, she is receiving a full teaching assistant-
ship. "Much of my ability to stand in front of a
classroom with confidence and poise can be attributed
to Tierney," points out Iezzi. "No matter what I thought
of myself, she always had faith in me.'W

□ N THE SENIOR BRIDGE IN FRONT OF THE NEW HEILMAN CENTER
STORY BY STEPHEN TRAPNELL'90 PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOHN T. CONSOLI
For Dr. Suzanne H. Arnold, Lebanon Valley College's new Heilman
Center for physical therapy is a concrete expression of her commit-
ment to two families.
major supporter of
the project, she decided
to name the center in
memory of her father,
Howard E. Heilman,
and her brother, Bruce
E. Heilman. Suzanne Arnold's father
was a contractor who built custom
homes in Lebanon County. Her
brother also worked in the business,
specializing in woodworking and
"They worked together, and they
were a team," Suzanne Arnold said.
"I dedicate this building in memory
of their fine work."
Fountain at the entrance
of the Heilman Center
The center includes a therapy pool,
classrooms and an exercise room lined
with huge windows overlooking
neighboring farms. "I am excited to see
the kids get an education in physical
therapy." Suzanne Arnold said. An avid
swimmer at the College's pool, she
added. "I feel that this building will help
people to be more physically fit."
At the dedication of the Heilman
Center during this year's Alumni Weekend,
LVC President David Pollick said. "Suzie's
generosity is the type of kindness that
while she is giving she picks up the phone
and calls and says. How can I give more?'"
As an Annville resident. College supporter and frequent
visitor to the campus, she has developed close ties to
"It's just like family to me. I know everyone. Everyone
is so friendly," she said. "You can't walk past a student
without them saving hi to you."
Suzanne Arnold, who previously helped spearhead the
effort to create the College's art gallety that bears her
name, was also excited about the prospect of the physical
therapy center. The building is home to the College's
newest master's degree program.
"I think it's wonderful that the College is expanding,
and I think it's gorgeous," she said of the Heilman Center,
which is adjacent to the Arnold Sports Center on the north
side of the campus. "I spend a lot of time there. It's very
relaxing and I enjoy it very much."
"It's been very rewarding to me,"
Suzanne Arnold said. "I see the students — their activities and
interests. That's where my heart is."
A longtime supporter of Lebanon Valley College, she
serves on the Lead Gifts Committee for the upcoming cam-
paign and the LVC facilities committee, and she is co-chair of
the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery Advisory Council. She is
active in many aspects of gallery programming including
sponsorship solicitation, art acquisition and volunteer recruit-
ment. Also co-chair of the Spring Fling Committee, she
recently established the Suzanne H. Arnold Foundation,
which is dedicated to benefiting youth who have an interest in
the arts. The Foundation has already undertaken several proj-
ects. A native of Lebanon County, Suzanne Arnold believes
the expansion on the north side of campus will strengthen
the College's ties to its neighbors.
"There are already people coming to the sports center,"
she said. "I think we're going to have a lot more people in the
community taking part, because it's so beautiful back there."
Ed and Jeanne Arnold in the Heilman Center
For Dr. Edward and Mrs. Jeanne Arnold, they believe that "If you are
going to be a small school, you have to be a good school. . .This is just one
sign of the tremendous strides that Lebanon Valley College has made."
Two other friends of the Heilman Center who recognized its
value to the community are Dr. Edward H. Arnold and his wife,
Jeanne. "There is no question that there is a tremendous
demand for therapists," said E. H. Arnold, who formerly served
as chairman of the board of Lebanon's Good Samaritan
"There is a definite need for this skill. That was probably one
of my biggest motivations."
As central Pennsylvania's population ages, he said,
more people will require the skills of physical therapists.
E. H. Arnold pointed out that both Good Samaritan Hospital
and Lancaster General Hospital supported the College's plans
for the physical therapv major.
The first class was admitted to the new master's degree track
in the 1 999-2000 academic year, and as of this fall. 43 people
are enrolled as pre-physical therapy students.
"It's emphasizing that there is very strong interest from the
students as well as a need in the market," E.H. Arnold said. "If
you can grow in areas that arc themselves growing.. .students find
good, quality employment.'
Dr. Ron Scott, associate professor and chair of the
physical therapv department, said, "This is a different kind of
program in a sense."
He pointed out that students in the five-and-a-half-year pro-
gram will be grounded in the liberal arts before thev even start
clinical studies. Coursework will include the socio-cultural
aspects of rehabilitation. American Sign Language, Spanish and
other curricula to help students serve diverse populations.
E. H. Arnold is chairman and chief executive officer of
Arnold Industries, Inc., a transportation and logistics business
based in Lebanon. He is also vice chairman of the College's
Board of Trustees and was previously honored for his support
in the naming of the Arnold Sports Center on campus.
Jeanne Donlevy Arnold is retired from her position as Senior
Vice President of Patient Care Services at Good Samaritan
Hospital. She now serves as a consultant to organizations and
is an active volunteer in a number of Lebanon community
agencies. She is also a member of the LVC Campaign
Communications Advisory Committee.
The Arnold family has been a long-time supporter of the
College dating back to E. H. Arnolds father Henry. He is a
former Trustee who was actively involved with Lebanon \ alley.
The Colleges football stadium, Henrv and Gladys Arnold

"If you are going to be a small school, vou have to be
a good school," Arnold said. "That to me is our biggest attrac-
tion, that you can get involved in whatever you desire because
the College is not that large and there are so many facilities.
He mentioned this war's visit by the world-champion U.S.
Women's Soccer I earn, which practiced at Lebanon Valley before
a game in Hershev. "It is such a first-class facility now. you can
attract events like that. Arnold commented.
He said his involvement with the College has been
valuable to him. as well as a benefit for the school.
"In the last 20 years, we have had very dynamic
presidents," Arnold said. "To me. its a learning experience.
The styles of the presidents are extremely different, yet
it prows that there are different ways to accomplish things.
As he and Jeanne watched the Heilman tenter take
shape and its physical therapy program become a realm", they
realized that this newest addition to the campus fits into the
school's ongoing development.
E.H. Arnold said. "This is just one sign of the tremendous
strides that Lebanon Villev College has made.

World Class Soccer
Comes to the Valley
BY CORY W. THORNTON '99
Ben Olsen, U.S. Men's National Team Mia Hamm, U.S. Women's National Team Mark Pulisic, LVC Head Coach
hen you think about wotld-class soccer,
you might not think Lebanon Valley
College. But maybe you should.
For starters, the men's and women's head
soccer coach, Mark Pulisic, is a former star for the professional
indoor soccer team, the Harrisburg Heat. Add to that an
award-winning soccer stadium and a couple of National and
Olympic teams and LVC is in the thick of what's happening
in United States soccer.
Last April, LVC allowed the United States Under-23
Men's Olympic Team to use its state-of-the-art facilities.
Two months later the United States Women's National
Team also made use of the field, as well as the new Heilman
Center, to prepare for the inaugural Women's Gold Cup
Tournament, which was held at Hersheypark Stadium.
"It gives the school a lot of credibility," said Pulisic.
"There is a commitment to the facilities like no other school
around, and it's a good situation for all. The rewards of first-
class events and high-quality teams are coming very quickly."
So, whether or not it's national star Michelle Akers using
the fitness room of the Heilman Center or Olympic gold
hopefuls booting the ball around the pitch, LVC looks to con-
tinue its interaction with the more worldly side of athletics.
"It's great for the students," said Pulisic. "To watch such
high-quality soccer in their very own stadium, and to be able
to tell their friends and family about it, it's really exciting."
Editor's Note: Both LVC teams qualified for the playoff for the
first time in their respective histories.
Cory W. Thornton '99 is a freelance writer and an assistant sports information director at Gettysburg College. While
a student at LVC, he lettered in men's soccer for four years under Coach Pulisic.

New Position, New Perspective
BY SHANNA ADLER
Record enrollment! Largest class
in the history of the College!
Retention rate at an all-time
high! These accolades have reverberat-
ed in LVC's hallowed halls throughout
the last decade as the College has
experienced unprecedented growth.
The Alumni Programs Office is familiar
with this expansion.
In the last 10 years, LVC has graduated
more than 2,700 alumni, nearly 1,000
more than in the 1980s. These "recent
graduates" now comprise 25 percent of
the current alumni base. And like the alumni who have gone before
them, they have distinct needs and expectations of their alma mater
and the services it provides.
Until recently, the alumni office, headed by director Ann Hess
Myers with support from Marilyn Boeshore, has handled these
needs and expectations. This summer, the College added an
assistant director position. Deborah Bullock Wescott '95 joined
the staff in July and will oversee recent graduate and senior
class programming and work with the Career Connections, Alumni
Ambassador and Student Alumni programs among other projects.
Wescott brings an alumna perspective, as well as a family histo-
ry, to the office. A 1995 graduate with a bachelor's degree in
American studies and a minor in music, she hails from Salem,
N.J., and a long line of LVC graduates — her mother, Patricia
Davis Bullock '62; aunt, Hazel A. Davis '57; sister, Mary Bullock
Neyer '97; father-in-law, Jamie G. Wescott '65; and brother-in-
law, Dan Neyer '95, all graduated from the Valley.
She also met her husband, Jonathan D. Wescott '93, a fellow his-
tory major, while at the Valley. They married in 1996. Recent
restructuring of the Student Services division at LVC brought the
couple back to central Pennsylvania where Jon has assumed the
job of director of residential life.
It seems Debbie has a knack for being at the right place at the
right time. "This position came along at just the right time
for me. I was looking for a change. ..and this position seemed a
logical step in my career — and further proof that my liberal arts
education prepared me for a variety of work experiences. But
more importantly, this job gives me the chance to give some-
thing back to the place that has been such a large part of my life."
Myers anticipates she'll shape the position, as well. "Much of what
Debbie is doing hasn't been done before, so there is a great deal of
room for her to develop an innovative program." In fact, she's
already begun doing so.
With complete responsibility for recent
graduate programs, Wescott plans to
invigorate young alumni by designing
programs and opportunities that will
keep them "active, informed and satis-
fied." A tall order for some, but one
Wescott understands, being a recent
graduate herself. "Alumni who have
graduated in the last 10 years expect
different types of events, different
modes of communication than alumni
who graduated 30 years ago."
Jon -93 and Deborah '95 Wescott in front of Millet Chapel Wescon p | ans t0 address those expec .
tations by working closely with the Recent Graduate Adviser/
Committee, a group comprised of alumni representing each of the
last 10 graduating classes. Furthermore, she will encourage atten-
dance at zero-, five- and 10-year reunions by holding them at
Homecoming rather than Alumni Weekend.
Before she holds her first alumni event, Debbie will begin work with
another constituency — the Class of 2001. "This is a completely new
outreach for our office," explains Myers. "We want to engage the
senior class early by offering programs and opportunities which will
help to prepare them for the 'real world' and educate them about
their post-graduation commitments to LVC at the same time."
A true believer that commitment is built through consistent pro-
gram offerings, Wescott plans to establish events that will become
traditions for the senior class. A "Senior Moment" in the fall and a
"Senior Send Off" in the spring, an Alumni Networking Session and
a Career Connections Seminar are just some of the events she has
already planned. As senior class adviser, she will work closely with
the class officers to make seniors aware of alumni office programs
available to them, including reunion planning assistance. "I plan to
encourage them to organize their reunion now. I maintain that if
they get involved now, they will better understand their role as
alumni once they graduate. It all comes down to a simple phenom-
enon: active undergraduates lead to active alumni," adds Wescott.
In her free time, Wescott will don the hat of "Web Liaison" for the
alumni office and work closely with Webmaster Kristy Floyd to
develop a user-friendly alumni link, providing yet another resource
for alumni of all ages. "It is just another opportunity for us to reach
out to a large number of alumni," offers Myers. "I will be spending
more time out of the office, but I plan to use that as an opportunity
to meet with more alumni and to take our alumni program efforts
beyond the campus." It is clear that with the addition of Debbie
Wescott the alumni office looks forward to expanding its efforts and
better addressing the needs of all its alumni.

MARKETING WITH A TWIST
BY HEATHER ROBINO
The next time you're walking through the mall and you just can't pass up an
Auntie Anne's soft pretzel, think of Judy Shaffer M'00. At only 26, Shaffer
has parlayed a lifelong interest in marketing and her recent LVC MBA
degree into a very successful career promoting one of America's favorite snacks.
"I'm a marketer through and through," says Shaffer. "I actually live to analyze the
commercials onTV rather than watch the shows."
As marketing manager for Auntie Anne's Inc. of Gap, Pa., Shaffer oversees the
planning and execution of national marketing efforts for more than 650 Auntie
Anne's stores, which tallied $186 million in system-wide sales in 1999. Her staff
supports franchise owners in various ways, from providing in-store promotional
materials to helping them sponsor local little league baseball teams. One of her
company's most popular promotions is their "History of the Pretzel" program,
where school children learn first-hand how Auntie Anne's pretzels are made by
rolling the dough themselves in their classrooms.
"I absolutely love my job," Shaffer states. "It's fun to promote pretzels every day —
they're delicious, they make people smile and they're an easy sell."
Before pursuing an MBA, Shaffer worked as the first assistant director of market-
ing for West Chester University at a time when, she says, colleges were just start-
ing to realize they needed to promote themselves differently. After 18 months in
the world of academic marketing, she took a job with Auntie Anne's in 1997. Now
living in Lancaster, Shaffer found Lebanon Valley's MBA program attractive
because it offered her a comprehensive curriculum while affording her the con-
venience of taking classes at Franklin & Marshall College.
"Getting my MBA was something I always knew I'd do, and it has really helped me
to broaden my perspective on life and work. In fact, I think the learning that took
place beyond the classroom — interacting and networking with my classmates —
was just as valuable, if not more so, than the academics," she says. "I feel accom-
plished [in my job], but I know I have a long way to go. My MBA is going to make
whatever I do in the future a smoother ride."

DEDICATED HIMSELF TO LANDSCAPING BLAIR
A Unique Cultural Exchange
BY HEATHER ROB1NO
hen the Reverend Jeffrey Whitman '77
of Harrisburg traveled to the United
Kingdom in 1996 with Dr. Pierce Getz
'51 and the Masterworks Chorale from Annville, he
was hooked and knew that he wanted to go back.
Pastor at the Colonial Park United Church of Christ
since 1994, Whitman was eager to delve deeper
into his church's roots by actually experiencing
life in an English church. He got his wish.
Rev. Whitman arranged for a three-month sabbatical over the summer, the cen-
terpiece of which was a pastoral exchange with the Reverend Brian Sturtridge of
Ringwood, England, a retired minister in the United Reformed Church in England.
Rev. Whitman embarked on his trip at the end of June, beginning with a week at
the lona Community off the northwest coast of Scotland, where he lived in a 13th-
century restored abbey. The lona Community was organized in the 1940s and is
committed to working with the poor, the children and youth, and issues of world
peace and ecology.
Spending time at lona was a spiritual retreat for Rev. Whitman — in fact, he had to
take three buses and two ferries to get to the remote location — and, he says, "in
a lot of ways lona was one of the real highlights of the trip for me."
After leaving lona, Rev. Whitman spent the next five weeks exploring southern
England and serving the United Reformed Church in Ringwood. There, among
other things, he was asked to speak about Pennsylvania and his church, and he
tried to draw some connections.
"The worship experiences were truly memorable and varied," says Whitman,
"from evensong in the great cathedrals in Salisbury and Westminster Abbey, to
leading worship in a small Methodist chapel in Dunham that could only seat
about 20 people, to a visit to the grave of William Penn in the church yard of the
small Friends Meeting House in Jordans."
The final two weeks of his exchange were spent at Oxford University, where
Rev. Whitman was one of 40 individuals from the United States and Canada to
participate in the Oxford Summer School of Religious Studies atWadham College.
"The exchange has been an enriching experience. I have enjoyed the opportuni-
ties to talk about the church in England with laity and clergy who are
trying to provide a faithful witness in small and struggling churches," Whitman
states. "I have discovered that in many ways England is a paradox. One can stand
in awe in the great places of worship such as Winchester Cathedral and St. Paul's
in London and marvel at the faith of the people who built these. ..and at the
same time travel to Galstonbury and see the remains of what may have been
the greatest cathedral of them all — destroyed by people of faith during the
dissolution of the abbeys by Cromwell."

A Modern Music Man
BY HEATHER ROB1NO
fter 30 years as a music teacher in
the North Schuylkill School
District, Dale Schimpf '69 of
Frackville, Pa., decided to retire in 1999.
What he didn't know then was that his
retirement would be anything but restful.
"I wanted to keep busy," says Schimpf. "I also
noticed that the parochial system didn't have
any music education program to speak of."
From this observation blossomed an idea
that has grown into a true labor of love for
Schimpf. He approached officials of the local
Cardinal Brennan Junior/Senior High School about resurrect-
ing their long-defunct instrumental music program. Having
received a recommendation from the Middle States
Association accreditation committee to enhance its arts
programs, the school was receptive and agreed to hire
Schimpf as a free-lance music instructor, allowing him to teach
private lessons to interested students. In just a year's time, he
has acquired over 30 students in grades five through nine, and
is always recruiting more.
What is most remarkable about Schimpf's recent endeavors
is how he was able to provide musical instruments for his
pupils, something Cardinal Brennan didn't have and couldn't
"The last band they had was at least 10 years ago, and there was
only a part-time director," explains Schimpf. "All that was left was
some sheet music in a box and some drums in a closet."
Coincidentally, Schimpf's son Scott, now a
sophomore music major at Lebanon Valley,
had a roommate named Raymond "Tug"
Bressler, whose father is a member of the
Williams Valley School District School
Board. Through a fortuitous bit of network-
ing, Schimpf and the elder Bressler negoti-
ated an arrangement whereby Williams
Valley donated their surplus instruments to
Cardinal Brennan. Now possessing a
decent collection of tubas, snare drums,
bass drums, mellophones, timp-toms and
saxophones, Schimpf and Cardinal
Brennan were on their way to a full-fledged band.
A year later — in addition to playing euphonium recreational-
ly in the Pine Grove and Cressona community bands and
serving as a church organist and choir director — Schimpf
keeps his ear to the ground for creative opportunities to
acquire the necessities for his band. Just recently, he
arranged to receive 90 old band uniforms from the South
Williamsport School District. And he plans to obtain addition-
al instruments and percussion equipment from the national
Mr. Holland's Foundation, as well as through generous pri-
"There's a certain amount of satisfaction in starting something
from scratch and seeing it develop," notes Schimpf. "I'm
having a ball. Most of my kids have only been playing since
last September, but we have a band of 18 students. I like to
share music with anyone I can. ..these kids were thirsty for it."
Dale Schimpf's daughter and her husband are also LVC alums. Amy (Schimpf) Stahl '98 graduated with a music degree and now works for J.W.
Pepper, a national sheet music distributor, in Paoli, Pa. Her husband, Brian Stahl '98, serves as the middle school band director for the Upper
Moreland School District. In addition, Dale has served as alumni ambassador for Schuylkill County for many years.

YOUNG ALUMNI PROFILE
BY BRADEN SNYDER '00
ike many college students, Jennifer Gochenaur '99 was unsure of her career
plans shortly into her collegiate experience.
"When I first started out I thought I would be a doctor," said Gochenaur, a
biology major. "But I wasn't as interested after spending hours and hours in the lab
— it wasn't for me."
But Gochenaur's future became much more lucid after some ecology courses at
Lebanon Valley sparked her interest. Completing an internship with Aqua-Niche, a
habitat restoration company, was the clincher.
"I liked being outside," she said, "and I liked being part of something bigger than
Consequently, Gochenaur now works as the soil watch coordinator for the Delaware
Nature Society (DNS), the largest environmental agency in the state of Delaware.
Although her job is multi-faceted, it consists mainly of three things: coordinating her
company's educational outreach, overseeing volunteers in the Nature Society's Soil
Watch Program and monitoring construction sites as a Certified Construction
Reviewer (CCR). Her main goals are to reduce sediment pollution in streams and
rivers, to improve the quality of water and to increase awareness.
"A lot of people understand the importance of clean water," explains Gochenaur,
"But most people don't make the connection between land and water."
CCR's are unique to the state of Delaware, which has experienced an increased
amount of construction since the 1980s. As a CCR, it is Gochenaur's duty to work with
construction and development industries to promote better soil conservation. If
these construction sites maintain state-mandated erosion and sediment controls,
Gochenaur rewards them through public relations
benefits, such as appearances in DNS newsletter
One of the things that Gochenaur enjoys the most
about her job is the opportunity to do a variety of
things. Fortunately, this variety is assured. The DNS
Soil Watch Program will soon be expanded into a
comprehensive watershed program that will focus
on all aspects of non-point source pollution, not just
Most of all, however, Gochenaur values her occupa-
tion because of her genuine concern for the environment.
"We all do this," she said, "because it's something we really care about."

In 1954, Lebanon Valley College graduated a senior.
Not a dramatic occurrence in and of itself, but 17
years later when that graduate returned to begin his
career in collegiate athletics, it was the beginning of
In 1971, current LVC athletic director Lou Sorrentino
returned to his alma mater to take on the role of football head
coach. He then put on the hats for the men's basketball and
baseball head coach positions, guiding all three sports for three
years. He eventually took the entire athletic department under
his wing when he was appointed athletic director by his former
men's basketball coach, dean of students and vice president
emeritus. Dr. George "Rinso" Marquette.
"I had been coaching high school for 15 years," said
Sorrentino, "having some success when Coach Fred Sample
called me about coming back. I actually got the opportunity
twice. The first time I couldn't afford to come back. The second
time I still couldn't afford to come back but I did anyway."
Many are glad that he chose to do so. "Lou is a tremendous
person who has been so giving of his time and energy to the
entire LVC community," stated LVC field hockey head coach and
associate athletic director KathyTierney. "Lou hired me in 1983
and always gave me the freedom and gentle mentoring to grow
professionally. I could always trust his instincts about issues fac-
ing me as a coach and administrator. For me, Lou will always
personify the friendliness and caring of LVC."
Now, 45 years after he took up coaching, 30 after returning
to LVC, 20 after becoming the LVC athletic director and a semes-
ter away from a retirement slated to come at the end of 2000,
what do all the numbers add up to for this Dutchmen great?
"I enjoyed coaching," said Sorrentino. "When football
came back after being behind 20-0 to beat Muhlenberg 21-20
and when we didn't have outstanding teams. I enjoyed being
athletic director when men's basketball won the National
Championship in 1993-94 and I enjoyed knowing that the
players were giving their best."
"Lou Sorrentino is truly special," said current Bucknell
University head men's basketball coach, and former Dutchmen
head coach, Pat Flannery. "Lou is a gifted teacher with tremen-
dous feel for people, great knowledge of many sports and a
totally genuine person. To go to a school as a young coach and
meet, learn and serve under Coach Lou was outstanding."

^VALLEY NEWS BRIEFS
■*iTOP 10 SCHOOL
For the fourth consecutive year, Lebanon
Valley College is ranked among the top
10 regional liberal arts colleges in the
North in U.S.News & World Report's
13th annual "America's Best Colleges"
issue and guidebook.
Lebanon Valley is number nine on
the list and is also named number seven on
the list of "best value" colleges — a ranking
that relates the cost of attending a college or
university to its quality.
"I continue to be enormously proud of
the quality of the Lebanon Valley College
educational community," stated President
Dr. G. David Pollick. "To be recognized
year after year among the top 10 institutions
of our kind in the North has become a well-
established and well-deserved recognition."
U.S.Neivs bases its rankings on academic
reputation, graduation and retention
rates, faculty resources, student selectivity,
financial tesources and alumni giving.
The College's enrollment numbers continue
to climb as the 2000-2001 academic year-
opened with some 1,430 full-time students.
The new school yeat officially began on
Saturday, August 26, with an opening con-
vocation in Miller Chapel.
Some 394 freshmen and 41 transfers
joined the student body. Eighry-eight
percent of last year's freshmen returned
to campus this year, marking the second
highest retention rate the College has seen
in the past decade.
"The College is continuing its upwatd
enrollment trend with a terrific new class
and outstanding retention," stated William
Brown '79, dean of admission and financial
aid. "This year's record enrollment of over
1,400 keeps LVC ahead of its pace to enroll
1,600 full-time students by 2005."
According to Brown, 169 of the new
fteshmen were in the top 10 percent of their
high school class and received a Vickroy
Scholarship, which pays half of the College's
$17,870 tuition. Another 91 students were
in the next decile of their high school class
and received Leadership Scholarships, which
pay one-third of the cost of tuition. Fifty-
four students were in the third decile and
earned Achievement Scholarships, which
pay one-fourth tuition. In addition, six indi-
viduals were awarded Academic Recognition,
which provides half-tuition scholarships
to transfer students from area community
colleges who were members of the honor
society, Phi Theta Kappa.
The entering freshmen come from 14
states (Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois,
Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan,
New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and
West Virginia) and seven foreign countries
(West Indies, Malaysia, India, Japan, Kenya,
Bermuda and Canada).
The College is also expecting some 480
part-time students, with some 220 in the
Master of Business Administration program
and some 95 in the Master of Science
Education program. In addition, some 43
students have enrolled in the five-year mas-
ter's degree program in physical therapy.

Nucleotide Sites of E. Coli GMP
The goal of the NIH project is to eluci-
date amino acids that are important in the
catalytic function of the enzyme, GMP
synthetase. If successful, the project will
provide fundamental information about
the enzyme's catalytic sites that can assist
in the design of pharmaceutical agents for
chemotherapy and for anti-rejection thera-
pies following transplant surgery.
The experimental work will be carried
out in the laboratories of the Garber
Science Center, with some samples sent to
the Macromolecular Core Facility of the
Hershey Medical Center for analysis. The
grant supports three consecutive summer
research sessions (during the summers of
2000, 2001 and 2002).
Lebanon Valley College personnel
involved in the project are Dr. Owen Moe,
professor of chemistry; Dr. Walter Patton,
