Mens Golf

Stevenson’s men’s golf team won its second consecutive MAC Commonwealth Championship and made its fourth trip to the NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship in May.

It was the second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament for the Mustangs who have won three MAC Commonwealth championships in five seasons in the league. Head coach Chris Ramer, who was named Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his career, has led the team to four conference titles overall.

Stevenson posted 13 top-five finishes this season, including three team titles. The Mustangs finished the season with seven top-five finishes with all three first place finishes coming in that stretch, including the conference title.

Making a Meaningful Difference

For a third year, the annual Stevenson Scholarship Luncheon was an occasion for celebration as scholarship donors and their deserving recipients were able to meet and get to know each other, some renewing their acquaintance from the past year or two.

Samuel M. Dell III, Trustee and sponsor of the Geraldine and Sam Dell Endowed Scholarships for Character and Excellence in Business and the Sciences, served as emcee and provided insight into his own experience. “It has been an inspiration for me and my family to meet these scholars and to see how we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of truly exceptional young people as they develop into positive contributors to the broader community,” said Dell.

Fenton Scholar Caroline Camper ’19 addressed the donors present and echoed the feelings of her fellow students when she remarked, “You all are creating a future for us that is bright and hopeful and allows us to pursue our education without the overwhelming worry of not being able to pay for it. Thank you for allowing me and many others to reach our full potential and achieve our dreams.”

At the April 23 event, milestone anniversaries also were recognized, with 10 consecutive years of awards from the Jo-Ellen Turner, Ph.D. Endowed Scholarship in English and the Linda Connolly Fenton Endowed Scholarship in Nursing and 15 consecutive years from the France-Merrick Foundation Scholarship and the Carolyn Manuszak Scholarship in Memory of Dr. T. J. Manuszak.

Dell Family Pathway Dedication

Spring is a season of renewal and possibilities, an ideal time to recognize those who have devoted themselves to nurturing the growth of our students and this institution. On April 18, the SU community gathered at Owings Mills North for the dedication of the Kevin J. Manning Academic Center; the Sara G. Manning Greenhouse, a new facility in the Beverly K. Fine School of the Sciences; and the Dell Family Pathway, encompassing the new bridge that now ties together the Owings Mills and Owings Mills North areas of campus. These namings honor the remarkable contributions of President Emeritus Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., for his tireless efforts in transforming this University; Sara G. Manning for her encouragement and embrace of the Stevenson community; and Samuel M. Dell III, Trustee, for his generous investment in the potential of our students.

Paying it Forward

Imagine the hundreds of students through the years whose scholarships helped them to complete their education and become graduates of Villa Julie College and now Stevenson University. You may have been among them. At the 3rd Annual Stevenson Scholarship Luncheon in April, Carolee Martelle ’63 ’89 ’97 encouraged students to pay it forward to those who will come after them as she has done by establishing a scholarship fund. As our alumni achieve their life and career goals, they are playing an increasingly larger role in support of our scholarship program. We offer our heartfelt appreciation to these graduates who have chosen to pay it forward. Listed below are the scholarship funds established by grateful alumni.

Manning Gala

Family and friends were honored to join Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., to celebrate his legacy.

On June 10, a farewell gala was held to pay tribute to the vision and leadership of President Emeritus Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., and to mark his retirement. Friend and former SU Trustee Timothy F. Maloney, Esq., performed as master of ceremonies and shared many anecdotes. We were also proud to be joined by the Rev. John W. Swope, former President of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore, who gave the blessing; and by Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, Ph.D., President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, who delivered the keynote address.

To honor Manning’s legacy, proceeds from the event will support the Kevin J. and Sara G. Manning Scholarship fund, which benefits students who are the first in their family to attend college. Manning Scholars are selected as incoming freshmen and continue to receive the award until they graduate. The scholarship has already aided one deserving student in achieving a Stevenson University degree.
