CBU Lasallian Fellows Class of 2015


The CBU Lasallian Fellows: Ronald Fotso, Shanice Oliver, Mallory Harvey, fellowship donors Robert Buckman and Joyce Mollerup, Lauren Harrett, and JD Wolfe

CBU has named Ronald Fotso (Computer Science ’15), Lauren Harrett (Civil Engineering ’15), Mallory Harvey (Civil Engineering ’15), Shanice Oliver (Marketing ’15) and JD Wolfe (Biochemistry ’15) as its 2015 Class of CBU Lasallian Fellows. The 2015 Fellows were introduced to the CBU Community at the Academic Convocation on August 28 and will be formally inducted in a special  Awards Dinner on September 11.

CBU Lasallian Fellowships are presented annually to five members of the senior class based upon the reflection of Lasallian values in their scholarship, leadership, and service. Each student was nominated by a member of the CBU faculty or staff because of academic excellence, commitment to social justice, the active nature of his or her faith, and an inspired approach to change-making.

Upon graduation, the Fellows will be awarded $5,000 as a means of perpetuating their work in the community. The Fellowships are made possible through the creative generosity of Joyce Mollerup and Robert Buckman.

We already have 279 of our September of Service spots filled! Now, let’s “CBU up” to fill the other 800 or so — sign up here: www.cbu.edu/sos.

To kick off our month of service, our first volunteers woke up early on Labor Day morning and headed out to St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen to help them prepare sandwiches, serve their guests with a meal, sort clothes, and more!

Here’s this week’s schedule — there are slots open, so sign-up to help out with:

Tuesday 4:00-6:00 Help build (and clean) community at Caritas Village (14 spots left). Caritas Village uses art, music, hospitality, theatre, classes, and connections to creatively join people together in common goals from many different ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

This food is then distributed to critical feeding agencies across the country at no cost to the agencies or the hungry people they serve.
Friday 12:30-4:00 Help homeless persons get needed resources at Convoy of Hope (right across from CBU) (44 spots). Convoy of Hope serves their guests of honor by providing them with free groceries, health and dental screenings, haircuts, family portraits, meals, and much more.. Hope Starts Here.

FACE IT MEMPHIS!  An exhibition of photographic portraits entitled “Face It Memphis!” is in the Beverly & Sam Ross Gallery through October 2, 2104. The exhibition of portraits by Memphis Camera Club members contains 106 photographs. Artists represented in “Face It Memphis!” are Beth Behm, Bill Belus, Steve Copen, Paula Cravens, Saj Crone, Beverly Hammond, Saji Madapat, Patty McLaughlin, Becky Ross, McRae, Mike Neal, Paul Nolte, Patricia Possel, Tom Richey, Uttam Shah, Patti Smith, Rog Spahr, Quinn Strother, Mary Stubbs, and Joe Sullivan. More information is available at www.cbu.edu/gallery.

PROCESSING THE IDEAL: Nick Peña, Associate Professor of Art at CBU, is exhibiting his paintings at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens through October 5. The exhibition, titled “Processing the Ideal,” features large-scale paint­ings that re-visualize perceptions of the “American Dream” and the effects that pursuit has on our environment. Many of Peña’s paintings begin with personal nostalgia and culminate in serious, social, or polit­ical inquiries. He considers both changing social norms and the physical appearance of the American landscape in his work. “Processing the Ideal” presents an interesting conundrum and questions if the ground that we live upon is both physically and ideologically solid. More information at CBU News Center or at www.dixon.org.

heartrateDr. Chad Baker (Electrical & Computer Engineering, Emeritus) recently took first place in the “Tour de Midtown,” a competition at the InsideOut Life Gym that replicates the actual Tour de France bicycle race on stationary spin bikes. When the riders were on hills, participants cranked up the resistance on the wheels of their spin bikes. Very few days were on the flats and those days were combinations of mad dashes with varying resistances. Over 50 gym members participated in the competition, and the participants rode over 250 miles in 21 days. Dr. Baker won 8 of the 21 stages and over $600 in prizes. The picture at left is his heart rate for the final class, the ride to Paris.

 (Biology) ran in the Chik-fil-A Labor Day 5K and would like the CBU Community to know that he finished 1236th out of 1300 runners and 562nd out of 574 men runners, but he finished in the TOP 20 among his age group rank! OK, there were only 20 in his age group, but the point is he did it! (According to Dr. Eisen, Dr. Frank Buscher “was a LOT faster.”)

Welcome to CBU!

Mandi-BaldufDirector of Athletics Brian Summers has appointed Mandi Balduf as the sixth softball coach in CBU history. Balduf comes to CBU after seven successful years at Chowan University in Murfreesboro, NC. She compiled a 185-175 career record while guiding the Hawks through a transition from NCAA Division III to Division II. She posted a 78-8 career record in five seasons of CIAA play, winning four division championships and two conference championships, reaching the NCAA Atlantic Regional twice.

Balduf was a four-year starter at Tiffin University in Tiffin, OH. After graduating, she served a year in AmeriCorps in Kentucky, where she also worked as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Kentucky. She also served as a graduate assistant at South Dakota and assistant coach at Tiffin before moving to Chowan.

“After a thorough examination of a strong national candidate pool that included head coaches at multiple levels, Mandi Balduf rose to the top as the best person to lead CBU softball,” said Summers. “Mandi’s previous experience as a Division II head coach, her commitment to academics, and the passion she expressed for building programs and teaching young women set her apart.”

Balduf succeeds Paige Wright-Lovett, who resigned after two years to move to Texas with her family.
