From the Archives: Regis alum one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks

November 14, 2014 by

Arnie Herber was quarterback for the 1929 Regis football team. When Regis stopped the football program because of the stock market crash, he moved back to his hometown of Green Bay, Wisconsin, to work as a handyman in the Packer’s clubhouse. Despite being given the nickname “dummy” by the squad, Coach Lambeau gave him a tryout and then signed the 20 year old for $75 per game. Herber went on to lead the Green Bay Packers to four league titles as one of the NFL’s finest passers. His nickname was soon changed to “The Kid” and then “Flash.” He played eleven years for the Packers and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1966.

Ode to Itipini exhbit

October 13, 2014 by

Illustrations from Ode to Itipini are on display through October 28th. Regis instructor, Natasha McConnachie, illustrated the children’s story Ode to Itipini written by her mother, Jenny McConnachie.

Jenny McConnachie is a registered nurse and long serving Episcopal missionary in South Africa. Jenny wrote Ode to Itipini as a tribute to the community that she worked with for over twenty years. Itipini was a community built on a refuse site- outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. Jenny’s story chronicles a day in the life of the community: struggles, delights and the care provided by volunteers. Natasha’s mixed media/collage illustrations convey the mprovisational nature of shanty homes and the colorful people who made their home there.

Join Natasha and Jenny for an informal exhibition closing on Tuesday, October 28th, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Illustrations are for sale at $300 each. Half of proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders to fight the Ebola crisis in West Africa. The book is available for $9 through Natasha at 303-960-8063 or online at magcloud.com.

Congratulations to Martin Garnar

October 1, 2014 by

Martin Garnar, Reference Services Librarian, is also an adjunct faculty member in the Library and Information Science Program (LIS) in the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver and will receive the Ruth Murray Underhill Teaching Award on Thursday, October 2nd.

In their nomination letter, Karen Riley, dean at the Morgridge College of Education, and Mary Stansbury, chair of the research methods and information science department, wrote that Garnar is “first and foremost an exceptional professional librarian. He is nationally recognized for his work in the areas of intellectual freedom and professional ethics, both of which are key concepts in this program and serve as a foundation for the profession.

“Engaging students in class discussion can be challenging, particularly for adjunct faculty as they have less interaction with the students,” Riley and Stansbury noted. “As emblematic of his commitment to teaching and to students in general, Martin works with those students individually, helping them find ways to be comfortable and confident articulating and contributing their views and knowledge.”

Congratulations to Martin on this award!
