While attending Chaminade, and for seventeen years I was a Marianist Brother. In the recent issue of the Chaminade Quarterly there was a mention of a proposed reunion of the class of 1963 in August 2003. This would be the 40th anniversary of that class! That number gave me pause, a great deal of gratitude for the good life God has given me, and appreciation of the education I received at Chaminade. I lived in Kieffer Hall right after it was completed, and remember digging holes in the rock with an air hammer to plant the landscaping there. I would like to receive more detailed information on the reunion with the hope that I might be able to attend to celebrate this milestone in our lives, and to visit my old Marianist friends and classmates.”

Joe Norris

BA, English, 1968
Joe  NorrisI was happy to see that Bro Waldeck\'s mural is still there, if a bit the worse for wear. I spent a lot of time with him while I was there, and one of my peak memories is the time he gave me a one-on-one guided tour of the Honolulu Art Academy\'s Asian art collection, including the piece he did his thesis about. It was a privilege and a delight to be in the same space with him, and I do not say things like that lightly. He did the mural to point towards the Marianist Mission, which it does well, but he himself was a most effective icon for it. As such, it and he might well serve as illustrations of the institution\'s mission statement, and be properly showcased to that end. If anyone on campus still remembers Bro Waldeck, they might find the words \"icon\" and \"showcase\" rather paradoxical. I knew him in retirement, puttering about with his paints and not getting himself talked about that I ever noticed. I don\'t know any stories about him other than my direct memories. That is exactly the point. If you can measure the yeast, you don\'t have bread. He and one lay teacher have affected my life more than everyone else there put together, not by anything in particular they said or did but by who they were. For anyone with a functioning central nervous system, life is full of moments when being alone is not good, and the only effective way not to be alone is to place oneself mentally in the presence of the company one needs. The Marianist Mission is to make that kind of presence accessible in a morally toxic world; which is what he is telling us in that mural.

1985
"My days shared at Chaminade were the best! It was at CU from the years 1983 to 1985 that my life started to make sense. In the article, "Calvinism and Culture: A Historical Perspective', written by Irving Hexham, he says, 'All the wisdom we possess consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and ourselves'". On June 14, 2003, I graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts in Theology. For many reasons I never completed my program at CU; but continued my studies at IUPIU for one year of dental school. What sustains me to this day from many trials are the fond memories I experienced through the people of Hawaii, the students attending the university and the learning. Above all else though I will never forget Dr. Art Mori, who was both an encouragement/inspiration to me. I am destined to change the world for the better; and it will manifest beyond my education and experience. I am confident to exemplify through my work as a Rehabilitation Counselor for the State of California for the physically and mentally disabled. I attribute to the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ through the mentoring and caring of people like Dr. Art Mori. Learning comes from books, lectures, experiments, and tests... But life transformation comes from love and understanding through people who sincerely care for the welfare of our future generations."

I am in my last year of law school and will be taking the bar. Okay, so ALOT of prayers are going to be needed come July 2004. I will take the CA Bar first and then the HI Bar second. It will take a while to pass I am sure. My goal is to become a law professor and legal scholar. Not a lawyer. My experience as a law student has been eventful, filled with drama, a ton of stress but overall quite enjoyable. Being a business major, we had extremely brilliant professors at CUH. Dr. Callahan, Bro. Christiana, Dr. Hutter, Dr. Klauser, and Dr. Murray to name a few. It has been the same; to be surrounded by professors who have written their own case books leaves one speechless.”

Survived by his wife Lori and son Ian James, Rowel was laid to rest at Borthwick Mortuary in Honolulu on Tuesday, May 13, 2003. Rowel, a night shift manager at Home Depot in Honolulu, was of Filipino decent and raised in Samoa. His wife Lori, and sister Olive “Jing” Silver reflect that Rowel had the biggest smile and heart, as well as a warm and embracing soul. His classmates remember Rowel as accepting of all and always willing to listen and lend a hand. Here are a few of their memories. David J. Burzynski, B.A. International Studies, ’93 “ I have the greatest memories of Rowel. He was a kind, gentle soul that was friendly from the start.” Jennifer Nitchman Chong, B.S. Criminal Justice, ’93 “ Rowel was a good friend. I could always count on Rowel to lighten the mood when it was heavy, which was often in the dramas of college life. I'll carry his beautiful smile in my heart always.” Robert C. Rossi, Jr., B.A. Economics ‘94, M.B.A. ‘95 “ My wife Pari (Pari Kim Rossi, B.B.A. ’95) and I owe a lot to Rowel as he was our referee on quite a few occasions. Who knows, without Rowel’s calming influence we may not be married now.” Our prayers and condolences go out to his family.

Back then I was a poor student living on noodles 3 times / day, and nowadays working and living in a nice neighborhood really close to Stockholm. Each time the winter comes around I miss Hawaii each and every minute, getting tumbled by the waves at Sandys or Makapuu, .sailing outside Diamond head on a real Hawaiian outrigger fishing in the sunset, or kayaking outside Kailua beach.. yep lots of great memories that I quite easily label life in paradise. I only wish that the distance between Hawaii and Sweden wasn't so great... I could easily see myself spending 6 months in each place. Or even come back to Hawaii and live there for a couple of years again. Hmm..people that I'm not in touch with but like to be.. Anthony Stupfel, Hal Archer, and Gene Descalze.”

“I feel I received an excellent education from Chaminade, and am sure many other students agree. You can investigate the opportunities and be creative in your thoughts and actions. My interests, or highest interest, were in writing papers, i.e. expressing myself and the slant of the subject. Of course, other academic interests were just as important. I took a year's classes at WSU. A beautiful college, but I had to adapt to black and white thinking. Everything was taken word for word from the textbooks. They did not encourage creative thinking. My interests: I took a flying course at the former Blue Mt. Aviation. I loved it, and passed the ground test; however, after only two flights with my instructor, I was grounded for medical reasons. Next winter--the snow is melting now--my family of skiers and I will ski at Blue Ridge, about 15 miles away. Wish me luck--it will be my first attempt. I love to sketch black & white pictures. The best element in getting a degree is branching out. I have decided to write--not journals--but fiction with psychological and para-psychological overtones that may some day merit as teaching tools in psychology classes. A big dream- yet I've always been a risk taker. Above all, treat others as you would have others treat you. Don't look at the flaws- but cherish the goodness in others.”

Thank you so much for the education I received while in Hawaii.” William is a detective and lives in Tennessee.

BA, English, 1997
As a senior English teacher in Rio Grande Valley, Texas, Jennifer helps to make her students’ dreams possible by preparing them for college. Jennifer says that “the Rio Grande Valley and Hawaii have many similarities. There is a language barrier, low economic status and a real need for strong education. “It is great that I can tell them I went away for college and it turned out amazing!”she said. Like so many other Chaminade graduates living on the mainland, Jennifer closes her eyes and remembers the beautiful ocean and people to feel a sense of calm when life becomes stressful. She believes experiences she had in Hawaii and at Chaminade prepared her for the life she leads now.

Hal A. FraserOn March 16, a group of nearly 50 people gathered at Kaimuki Park. Many of them had just spent the last six weeks exploring the ins and outs of creating a business plan and running a better business. Of the 38 graduates of the Core Four Business Planning Course, five graduates decided to present their business plans for review by lenders with representatives from non-profit organizations like the Hawaii Community Loan Fund, government agencies like the Small Business Organization, and most of the major Hawaiian banks. This graduation night and six weeks of training had been made possible by the generous funding approved by Dr. John Webster, Director of the Hogan Entrepreneurial Program at Chaminade University. Now these graduates were presenting their business ideas in the basic business interview that occurs with lenders daily. The presenters were surrounded by their peers, quietly observing and learning from watching the exchange. Back in January, along with the help of Robyn Uyeda, a Chaminade senior in the Hogan program, we distributed hundreds of flyers door to door in Palolo Valley. Nearly half of the class's final 43 students responded to this direct marketing effort. That night all presenters did a wonderful job presenting their businesses. Amazingly most of them had explained that they would fund their business starts themselves, but wanted to challenge themselves by presenting to the lenders. Hal Fraser, is a business trainer and president of The Hawaii Center for Entrepreneurship, Inc., which teaches Core Four on Oahu. Hal, to the right, is pictured here with Dr. Webster.

Lori 'Summer'  Stearman“After I arrived in Florida I worked in the criminal justice field as a Loss Prevention Officer and also a Juvenile Probation Officer. The Juvenile Probation Officer position was the better of the two. However, there came a question of ethics which hit me like a brick when my supervisor actually asked me to lie on the forms so that juveniles whom had been arrested for a misdemeanor would be sent away from their families for up to a year. With the right frame of mind I continued to look for another job which landed me at the helm of Jacquieline Davis. She is one of the world's top female bodyguards and has worked with many rich and famous. Currently she is guard to J.K. Rowling of The Harry Potter series. I worked as her tour coordinator and booked her first lecture/book signing tour within 10 states on the Eastern United States coast including guest segment appearances on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX affiliates. During this time of working with J. Davis I was also working on my feature scripts which I'd written while studying at Chaminade. One of the scripts titled "The Capricorn Crossing" finally got picked up by literary agent Faye Swetky and I'm hoping for a sale of a very high action/espionage script. One other script which was written for the entire island of Oahu titled "Hobiecat" has been read by numerous agencies and independent studios. Hopefully, it will fair well with my agent, although the search for any producer is still a daily exercise.”

Alfredo Santayana

MED, 2009
Alfredo Santayana writes: "My wife, a U.S. Army Soldier with several tours in Iraq, and I are currently assigned to Fort McPherson, Georgia where we are both serving the U.S. Army in some capacity (we miss Hawaii!). My recent degree in education from Chaminade has opened so many doors for me and my family. As a civilian, I work at the Army Education Center, counseling and advising our men and women in uniform in reaching their education goals. Jobs in Georgia are increasingly scarce and very comeptitive. I am fortunate to be employed. The Lord has blessed me with a loving family, stead work, and good people as friends. For that I am truly grateful. I know there will be challenges in the near future (base closures, more deployments and possible layoffs). However, I remain positive that we will overcome them all with the Lord's help and bring our child into the world with everything he will need to have a wonderful life! Vita in verbo!"

Christopher Tavares

BS, Forensic Science, 2009
Christopher Tavares is participating in The Marianist Volunteer Program (MVP). It places volunteers in one-and two-year assignments in the U.S. and foreign countries. Its mission is to provide opportunities for men and women of faith to share in the Marianist charism by building a community in mission for peace, justice and solidarity with the poor and maringalized. Christopher is in Africa. He writes, "I have found people in need of baisc stuff of life - education, nutrition, money, hope. But, I have also found a culture overflowing with the stuff that makes life worthwhile. The happiness and generosity that enfolds me here is beyond comprehension and honestly, without justification or explanation. I am a teacher. Three days a week I rise to the calls of roosters and grace the concrete floors of an aging secondary school. I sweat as I scibble notes on the chalkboard with debatable legibility. The students, dressed in proper school uniform of white collared shirts, dark slacks, closed toe shoes and an invisible tie, hastily copy down my every slanted letter. I am their only resource. Textbooks are rare treasures. All too tragically, the two are often interchangeable. As students pose difficult questions, I become a human thesaurus and, with a touch of clever cultural engineering, fight to bridge the inevitable gaps in communication. Sometimes I succeed. Sometimes I do not. But it's the small successes that truly matter."
