My Post-Grad Journey:
Following graduation, with my Psychology degree and all I learned from two mentors at Fairfield (Dr. Ron Salafia and Dr. Alex Tolor), my wife (Linda) and I headed to the University of Delaware to begin my doctoral studies in psychology. My strong research background (especially my work as a research assistant to Alex) served me well. I completed the requirements (including my clinical psychology internship at the Devereux Foundation) in 4 years. In 1973, we moved to New York for my position as Assistant Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York - Plattsburgh. The combination of research and clinical training allowed me to go beyond teaching throughout my 45 years at Plattsburgh. I published over 100 professional articles and 16 books, and received the State University of New York Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Scholarship in 2006. I retired as Professor Emeritus of Psychology in 2018. Linda and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in September, 2018, with our two sons and their families (including 3 grandchildren). We enjoy living in a small, college town on Lake Champlain, close to Canada and Vermont. And, I am still writing and nearing completion of an updated version of an Amazon e-book for parents of children with disabilities.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
My fondest memory was Senior Week because I got to share my final Fairfield experiences with my parents and wife. Most importantly, it was my chance to show my gratitude for their love and support.

My Post-Grad Journey:
Shortly after graduation, I began a two year commitment as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Turkey and Ghana. I taught English as a Second Language in both countries--at the high school level in Turkey and the teacher college level in Ghana. This experience exposed me to new cultures, languages, religions, politics, and poverty. I credit the Peace Corps with broadening my perspective about so many things--how I wanted to live my life, what I valued, how I viewed the world--ideas I started thinking about at Fairfield. It also confirmed my interest in education as a career when I returned to the United States, and fueled a lifelong passion for world travel.

I began my career in Camden, NJ, in 1971 first as a teacher, then counselor, and finally federal program administrator. In 1976 I joined the New Jersey State Department of Education where I spent the bulk of my career--33 years--in a number of key positions. During that time I worked for six Governors on a variety of education initiatives, and was the director of a number of offices that focused on curricular issues, urban education, and secondary education. I ended my career at the department as an assistant commissioner for the Division of Educational Standards and Programs. In this position, I was responsible for the development and implementation of the Common Core Standards, the statewide assessment system, a new high school transformation initiative, teacher and administrator licensing, and career and technical education.

In 2009 I retired from the state and went to the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association where I became the CEO of the Foundation for Educational Administration. Here was an opportunity to support the state's school and district leaders and to assist putting policy into practice based on many years of state experience. I retired after nine years in July 2018.

As an educator, I strongly believe in lifelong learning and to that end I earned a master's degree in 1974 in counseling psychology from the College of New Jersey, and a doctoral degree in educational administration from Rutgers University in 2004.

I have a lot of interests, but two areas predominate. During the 1980s and 1990s I sang regularly with the Trenton Civic Opera and the Princeton Opera, two local theater groups. I performed over 25 leading roles and the experience taught me much about how to work with others and how to perform in any situation. Since the 1980s, I have also spent a great deal of time traveling. I have taken two around the world trips covering 18 countries, and travel regularly each year visiting incredible places on nearly all of the continents. All of these adventures have been with my partner and best friend. We met in mid-life, are married, and live in Doylestown, PA.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
My time as editor-in-chief of The Stag, the student newspaper, provides a lot of memories. The end of the sixties was a tumultuous time in the United States and all of the critical events impacted our campus. In addition to our interest in the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, and other national issues, Fairfield was also grappling with coeducation, an ambitious building program, and student rights. My best times were sitting with the Editorial Board discussing our reaction to these events and reaching consensus on a position. This often occurred at the Howard Johnson's restaurant in Fairfield on all-you-can-eat fried chicken night. The ability to think critically, to argue a position, and to write clearly were skills I learned at Fairfield and used my entire life.

My Post-Grad Journey:
After graduating with a degree in History I entered military service (the Army) for three years. One year in USA training in the Signal Corps and then two years in Bangkok, Thailand. After military service, graduate business education and certification- MBA, MS Taxation, CPA. I worked a dozen years for a national CPA firm and then thirty years as Director of Taxation for a diversified multinational manufacturing corporation, retiring January 2015 at 67. My wife and I (married 48 years) live in Simsbury, CT. My interests include hiking, fly-fishing, participating in our church (Parish Council, Finance Council, etc.), reading, studying the Italian language and cooking Italian food, and socializing with our family and with our friends. My wife and I travel domestically and internationally extensively. We have two married children, living in Manhattan and the Boston area, and three grandchildren.

There are a number of themes that encapsulate my memories of how my experiences and learning at Fairfield shaped my life since graduation. Using those themes, I will try to talk about my life.

Lifetime Learning
When we graduated, I was thinking about graduate school or law. The Viet Nam conflict, and my desire to start a life with Bethany, sent me in another direction. After a few weeks at Southern Connecticut State, I became a fifth grade teacher in rural Upstate New York, Copenhagen Central School. I soon moved up to be the junior high English Department (a department of one). I had to figure out curriculum, internal policy, a different life style, and really cold, long winters. I took graduate courses at SUNY Oswego and St. Lawrence University. I also learned, in no particular order, how to be a JV wrestling coach, director of student plays, scoutmaster, president of the faculty union, and chair of my parish fund raiser. After four years, I realized that all in all teaching was not my future, it was either teach or seek a new career in administration. I applied to and was accepted at Fordham University School of Law. This was a move to NYC and a realization after one year that I needed to earn money while going to Fordham full time. Beth was doing her best as a teacher in a Catholic school in East Harlem. I saw a flyer that Shearson Hayden Stone’s legal department was looking for a law student to work on some mysterious area called Rule 144 sales. General Counsel Phil Hoblin- a 3 F man (Fordham Prep, College, Law) was willing to take a chance on a semi-2 F man (Fairfield and Fordham.)

I was soon learning about securities regulation, litigation, corporate governance, brokerage operations, even how to send internal wires- Figs-H-Ltr. I learned how to be second chair in arbitration, write an answer, and lug the boxes of documents to a hearing.

From Shearson to EF Hutton, the New York Stock Exchange, a start up broker as its general counsel, LF Rothschild, and finally Pershing Division of Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette. I learned more regulation, handling litigation, negotiating skills. At Pershing, I continued to learn as a manager, senior officer, member of risk management groups, speaker at seminars, and international law as we expanded to London and Japan.

I was asked to serve on Fairfield’s Board of Trustees by Father Al Kelly, SJ and that was a great learning experience as well. The internal workings of a great university and the opportunity to learn from highly accomplished fellow alumni-trustees and Jesuit members of the board was and is a highlight of my life.

Today, I continue to learn as an expert witness and consultant. In my current service on my Town’s Planning Board, I continue to learn about land use law and public feelings about this highly charged area.

What we all learned at Fairfield —deep dive learning, reflection, and the connectedness of everything one learns— served me well and made that possible.

Strong Sense of Morals and Ethics
Learning to do and stand for what is right is a life time project. For me, it started with parents who demonstrated high standards and demanded it of the children, was inculcated at St John Nepomucene in Bridgeport, continued with the fathers at Notre Dame High, and was rigorously taught at Fairfield. Obviously, in the financial services industry there are many opportunities to consider and decide what is the right course. I am proud to report that on retirement I was cited for being a steady hand for right as Pershing’s General Counsel.

Clear Thinking and Clear Writing
One thing stands clear from our days at Fairfield, we were made clear thinkers and clear writers. It may have been Walter Petry asking over and over what exactly did Jefferson say or on Joe Grassi asking to explain Plato, or parsing a poem in a literature class, or writing a paper in Music Appreciation, but it was always there. These habits of clear thinking, articulation, and clear writing continue and form a basis of success. I think of smart associates at Pershing asking me to edit their annual self-assessment, of drafting and redrafting answers in litigation and business reports, and being the go-to person whenever clear writing is needed.

Habits of leadership by having articulated goals, expressing them well, and self assurance were all part of the experience at Fairfield. For me, it was participation in Student Government and membership in Phi Kappa Theta, Fairfield’s experiment with fraternities. Whatever leadership means, it began at Fairfield and continued as President of a teachers’ union, corporate general counsel and senior officer, chair of securities industry committees, trustee, planning board chair and Grand Knight in my local K of C.

Steve Hackett

Steve was a proud alumni of Fairfield University and was looking forward to receiving the information and material on the 50th Year Reunion. He was saddened that he was not able to be present at the reunion due to his health issues. Steve was always grateful for his years at Fairfield University and felt that he had been very well prepared for his 30 year teaching career. He also enjoyed his time as a Stag and among his memories of the 'U" were living at the beach as an upper classman and the time he spent with a group of friends who had a student band - The Bleach Boys - a take-off on the Beach Boys.

Following graduation, Steve taught English and was a Guidance Counselor at Ludlow HS & Fairfield High. For several years he also coached the swim team and girls’ softball team. As a long-time member of First Church Congregational, Fairfield he was very active as a Deacon and Confirmation Mentor and touched the lives of many young people. Following his retirement, he relocated to the West Palm Beach Florida area where he passed away on February 12, 2019. Steve is survived by a son and daughter and four grandchildren.

My Post-Grad Journey:
After leaving Fairfield in June I went to San Antonio in August for Officer Training School at Lackland AFB. After three months at Lackland I was assigned to Vance AFB in Enid, Oklahoma for pilot training and I graduated a year later. I was then trained to be an instructor and spent most of the next four years back at Vance teaching newly minted officers how to fly. In June 1974 I left the Air Force and moved to Boston and attended Suffolk University Law School at night. I became a member of the NJ Bar in June 1979. I then joined Associated Aviation Underwriters subsequently known as Global Aerospace as a Claims Attorney and became the department head in 1994. From the time I began my insurance career until I retired in 2012 we were directly or indirectly involved in the litigation and resolution of most major airline accidents both domestic and international including the World Trade Center attack. My wife Cathy and I have been married for thirty-eight years and we had three children together and two more from my prior marriage. All five are married and we have six grandchildren and are expecting three more during 2019. We do a lot of day care and have great fun doing it. We have been fortunate to have traveled around the world on business and otherwise and are looking forward to additional trips.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
At Fairfield I enjoyed living at the beach senior year, going to basketball games and being with the great people who were my classmates. My favorite courses were Robert Emerich’s Drama and Shakespeare, Dr. Joan Walters’ banking courses and Dr. Edward Dew’s South and Central America political science. Although at the time I didn’t appreciate why we had to take so many required credits in Theology and Philosophy I eventually came to see the benefits of disciplined thinking. I am thankful for the values I learned from my parents and reinforced and refined by the Jesuits; during my career those values helped me to maintain an attitude of empathy and resolution rather than mindless confrontation and endless battle.

When I graduated in 1969 with a Bachelor’s Degree in History, I was commissioned the same day in the U.S. Air Force. I next attended Georgetown University Law Center. I graduated from there in 1972 and waited to be called to active Air Force duty. In June 1973 I was called to active duty and assigned to Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois. Serving four years of active duty, I entered the Air Force Reserves and retired in 1998 with 28 years of service. I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.

I then worked in Illinois in private practice for a while, then in the Illinois Government from 1978 until 2003. I was the Senate Legislative Liaison for Governor James R. Thompson for one year. Then, I was General Counsel to the elected Secretary of State James Edgar from 1981 to 2000. When Mr. Edgar was elected Governor in 2000, I was appointed the Director and General Counsel for the Illinois Development Finance Authority, a state economic development agency. After a four-year term there, I became the Chief Administrative Judge for the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation. After four years in that position, I was appointed the Chairman of the Illinois Department of Revenue’s Board of Tax Appeals.

In 2003 I retired from the State of Illinois and went to Washington D.C. to work for the Department of Defense as an Administrative Law Judge. I conducted hearings all across America. In 2017 I retired from that position.

Now I pursue my hobbies and other interests, such as reading history, building and operating model railroads, participating in various model railroad clubs, and political organizations. I am President of the Lionel Operating Train Society, an international model railroad club.

My wife Kirsten and I live in Grayslake, Illinois, north of Chicago. We have two adult daughters, Sarah and Susan. Sarah graduated from Fairfield in 2007. She works in Washington D.C. with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She recently had our first grandchild, a daughter. Susan, who graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut in 2011, teaches Latin and Greek at private academy in Elgin, Illinois.

My Post-Grad Journey:
After graduation and a summer spent working in New York City it was off to basic training in September of 1969. I headed out to Missouri along with seven of my classmates from Fairfield including my roommate of four years, Tom Quackenbush. After being discharged from the Army, I starting working for a small bank on Long Island and New York. I married in 1972 and shortly thereafter moved to Westchester where we still reside in Rye. We raised three children there, two of whom continue to live nearby. After earning an MBA from Pace University, I went on to a career of thirty-nine years at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in Bank Supervision. This was a job that I looked forward to every day and which afforded me the opportunity to work in an ever-changing financial landscape. I retired from the bank at 69, although my wife, Emily continues to teach middle school math at a Catholic independent girls’ school. We continue to enjoy our family, our two grandchildren, and visiting our son in San Diego as often as we can. Writing this, I see post-graduation memories continuing to be made.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
My favorite memory is really a four-year stream of memories from wondering the first day on campus who my roommate would be, and then rooming together for the next four years, to remembering graduation day and wondering what was next. In between there was switching majors from Classics to Marketing and still managing to graduate on time. The presence of Jesuits in the classrooms and the dorms, basketball on campus and the opening of the student center and library stand out. I went on to making lifelong friends during my four years while a lasting memory of course, was meeting my wife, of 47 years, who had come from Marymount College to an off campus party in the fall of 1968.

My Post-Grad Journey:
Since leaving Fairfield with a degree in Education / History, I worked at Brian McMahon H.S. in Norwalk and discovered that my wife to be was waiting for me, not in New Rochelle, but in New Haven. Karen and I were married and moved to Bridgeport and then to Fairfield were we taught in that system. Life drew us to a family of 4 children and teaching in Singapore. I earned an EdD degree and then became a superintendent of schools and I am still working as a retired, part time superintendent in Hampton, CT.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
Besides all of the friends and professors I had, I carry with me two vivid memories. The first was the campus in spring were I could see all the way to Long Island. The second was Walter Petry. He made me into a "real" student because he challenged me to read and then think about what I read. Oh ya, Fr. McGinnis came to my parent's home and had dinner in our very small Cape Cod house. I loved it, my parents were soooo scared. But all turned out well as did my life living with Karen and our children.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
I grew up in Wallingford, CT and followed my high school basketball team and thought I knew school spirit. Enrolled in Fairfield, not nothing a thing about the Stags emerging basketball program. First game my freshmen year was at the old New Haven Arena against the then pre-season ranked #1 team in the country, St Joseph's. I will always remember when the Stags came onto the floor for pre-game warm ups. Toilet paper flying everywhere, the full house of thousands screaming and chanting Fairfield at the top of their lungs. I was just blow away. Then 6 Stags dunked the ball in a row during warm ups. Besides everything I had loved about my first three months at Fairfield, that moment was one of such pride, awe, shock, and bewilderment. I thought I knew school spirit, but what I was experiencing was beyond comprehension.

My Post-Grad Journey:
After graduating, I spent six months at Army Reserve basic training at Fort Polk, then explored a variety of opportunities, including an MBA program and positions in a technology company and with the Bureau of Narcotic and Dangerous Drugs (now the DEA.) The latter ended before it began when I was in a car accident and couldn’t pass the physical. During the seven months I spent recovering in the hospital, I decided to go to graduate school for social work. I spent the next 43 years working in nonprofit agencies focusing on child welfare, juvenile justice, and legislative advocacy in New York State. Since St. Patrick’s Day 2016, I’ve enjoyed retirement with my wife, Casey, traveling the world, riding my bike, volunteering, and spending time with our 10 grandchildren.

What is your favorite Fairfield University memory?
Besides the fun at Ship Ahoy and parties on Beach Road, what I remember most is learning to appreciate the value of lifelong learning. Entering Fairfield, I believed the benefit of education was securing a job and pursuing a career. Over the next four years, I came to appreciate the value of continually learning new things, seeing other perspectives, and understanding there is always something more to explore. One specific event was the tipping point. In my junior year, Dr. Rossi, the biology professor who was facilitating special seminar, talked about what he did to stay current in his field, keep learning, and remain informed about world events. Every day he got up at 5 am, he told us, read newspapers, journals, and a variety of books. I was amazed; he was already successful, had a good job, yet he did this and enjoyed it! Looking back today, my reaction seems funny, but since then, I have valued ongoing learning, and this has enriched my life for the past 50 years. The only regret I have is that I never said, “Thank you, Dr. Rossi.”

We continue to remember in a special way the members of our class who have gone before us...

Eternal rest grant to them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May these and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
