Marv Levy '50 was photographed with President David McInally and Charlie Kohawk during the Make Your Move campaign kickoff in the fall of 2015. Levy returns to Coe on April 22 to receive the Founders' Medal and for the dedication of Marv Levy Way.

Coe College will honor Marv Levy '50 with its highest honor, the Founders' Medal, on April 22. As a past recipient of Coe's Alumni Award of Merit (1972), Athletic Hall of Fame (1973), and honorary degree (1991), Levy will formally be awarded the Founders' Medal for "exemplifying in extraordinary degree the qualities of a liberally educated person."

Born in Chicago, Levy served in the Army Air Corps from 1943-46. At Coe he lettered in football, track and basketball. He graduated magna cum laude and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He later earned a master's in English history at Harvard University.

After coaching in the college ranks at Coe, the University of New Mexico, the University of California (Berkeley), and the College of William & Mary, Levy transitioned to NFL coaching stints as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles (1969), the Los Angeles Rams (1970) and the Washington Redskins (1971-72). He was the special teams coach on the Redskins team that lost 14-7 in the 1972 Super Bowl to the undefeated Miami Dolphins. Later, Levy won two Grey Cup championships with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, and then got his first NFL head coaching job with the Kansas City Chiefs from 1978-82. He coached in the USFL with the Chicago Blitz in 1984 before becoming the head coach in Buffalo from 1987 through 1997. He was also the Bills general manager in 2006-07. His lifetime coaching record is 185-143-4 (.565), including a 43-31-4 mark in Canada.

Levy, who lives in Chicago with his wife, Fran, was named Coach of the Year in 1988 and AFC Coach of the Year in 1988, 1993 and 1995. From 1987-97, the Bills were first in AFC winning percentage and second only to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001.

Levy becomes the eighth Founders' Medal recipient, joining Paul Engle '31 and William Shirer '25 in 1976; F. Gaynor Evans '31 and S. Donald Stookey '36 in 1980; and Don Ebinger '47, Russell Knapp '30 and William Whipple '35 in 2001 as part of Coe's sesquicentennial celebration.

The celebration begins with a light breakfast buffet in Stewart Memorial Library as Coe showcases improvements to the gallery spaces due to the generosity of Kim Benjamin '75 and his family. The Founders' Medal Ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. followed by the dedication of Marv Levy Way on Coe's campus at the corner of College Drive and D Avenue. Click here to register.


Coe Day of Giving announcement

Kohawks support their alma mater with Coe Day of Giving

Kohawks everywhere will unite this Thursday in support of their alma mater for the third annual Coe College Day of Giving. The special day will be a celebration of all things Coe, and include the opportunity for alumni and friends to share memories, show their Kohawk pride, and support the college financially.

Primarily conducted through social media, the Coe Day of Giving will be highlighted by Kohawks re-engaging with the college. Throughout the day, videos and updates will be shared. Alumni and friends are encouraged to express their Coe pride and memories by posting comments, photos or videos using the #KohawkDay hashtag. Thanks to the generous contributions from many challenge leaders, gifts made to the college on Thursday will be matched to multiply their impact.

Last year, more than $215,000 was raised through the Day of Giving program. The 2016 Day of Giving was successful not only in terms of the financial benefits for the college, but also in terms of overall participation. The number of first-time donors to the college increased by nearly 50 percent compared with the previous year, while the number of young alumni contributors grew by 20 percent. Kohawks from 46 states participated, with members of the classes of 2013, 2016 and 2014 making the most gifts.

The Day of Giving includes celebrations across the United States, with a large event and an on-campus celebration planned for students, faculty and staff in Cedar Rapids. Celebrating with fellow alumni and supporting their alma mater, the event gives Coe's more than 5,000 alumni living in Eastern Iowa an opportunity to proudly wear their crimson and gold.

"The Day of Giving is a fun and creative way for our community to celebrate and expand the impact our gifts have on the lives of our students," said Vice President for Advancement David Hayes '93. "We are grateful for the enthusiastic Kohawk spirit and generous support Coe receives from alumni and friends on this special day."

Martins support Hickok expansion in memory of former neighbor

Vince and Jan Martin
Vince and Jan Martin

To say Eliza "Roby" Hickok Kesler '31 had a contagious love for Coe College is an understatement. Just ask her former neighbors, Vince and Jan Martin.

Living in Cedar Rapids from 1974-79 while Vince managed FMC Corp., the Martins bought a house on Linden Drive SE next door to Roby and Carl Kesler. "Thus began a wonderful and close friendship that lasted until Roby's death," Vince said. "And, of course, one could not be a friend of Roby's without being drawn into the Coe circle."

Before her death in 2005 at age 95, Roby liked to tell people she was "born under a bush on the Coe College quadrangle" because she grew up on the campus where her father, Charles T. Hickok, was professor of social studies from 1905-39. Hickok Hall was named in his honor when it was built in 1950.

In addition to experiencing Coe, the Martins explored greater Cedar Rapids through Roby. "She introduced us to the community - people, history, organizations," Jan said. "She was so happy to help us in this way."

The Martins left Cedar Rapids for AMCA International in 1979 before Vince co-founded Jason Inc. in Milwaukee in 1985. Vince joined the Coe Board of Trustees in 1989 and served seven terms before becoming a life trustee. He retired from Jason as CEO in 1999 and as chairman in 2004.

Vince said his tenure as an active trustee was rewarding, especially in his role as chairman of the Investment Committee while steering the college through the 2008 stock market crash. "It was a good fit, as Jan and I have always had a great appreciation for a liberal arts education and likewise have always been supporters of the many fine small liberal arts colleges in the Midwest," Vince said.

While Vince served Coe, Jan was a trustee at Milwaukee's Alverno College. She was also on the board of the McCormick Theological Seminary.

That appreciation for liberal arts colleges and their friendship with Roby prompted the Martins to pledge $200,000 to name the Hickok Hall lobby in Roby's memory through Make Your Move - The Campaign for Eby and Hickok. They recently also pledged $25,000 to name an elevator in the performance arena expansion to Eby Fieldhouse.

In 2000, admiration for their former neighbor inspired the Martins to give $75,000 for the creation of Kesler Lecture Hall. In 1993, they made a similar gesture, setting up a scholarship in Roby's name to recognize her accomplishments and service.

"When the time came for the Hickok expansion, it was clear to us that we should participate in honor of Roby," Vince said.

You can join the Martins to help these large-scale projects become reality and multiply the impact of your gift. By raising $6 million for Make Your Move, the college can receive a generous $3 million grant from the Hall-Perrine Foundation of Cedar Rapids. Visit www.alumni.coe.edu/makeyourmove today.


Trading beaches for boardrooms
Kohawks explore Chicago careers on spring break

Rather than living in the moment, a dozen Coe students spent part of their spring break planning their future.

The Alumni Office and the Center for Creativity and Careers organized the spring break externship in Chicago. Students spent March 5-8 meeting professionals and exploring careers and internships across a variety of exciting fields and industries.

"Taking the time to explore Chicago as a city, as a place of future employment, and a potential place to live really changed my perspective and broadened my horizons with regards to plans after graduation," said Meredith Wall '19. "Meeting and networking with Coe alumni was a major part of the trip and very beneficial to my understanding of how different career fields choose to hire employees and the possibilities available after graduation."

Dray Schreiber '18 said the Chicago externship was his best spring break. "I made a ton of connections with people ranging from lawyers and HR personnel to CFO/CEOs," he said. "This experience has had a significant impact on me and I have been considering working in Chicago after I graduate."

Even students just getting started at Coe found value in the externship.

"The Chicago trip was an excellent opportunity to meet with alumni, visit their place of employment, and explore possible career opportunities," said Alaina Tschida '20. "Since I'm still a first year, it was really timely to shape my future education and internship plans."

Students visited downtown Chicago companies covering fields and industries including energy, business administration, finance, engineering, entrepreneurship, law and others. In addition, they attended two networking events with area alumni.

"The students and the program were well received by other members of the firm, and the entire experience made me proud to be a Kohawk," said Andrew Borders '03, a partner at Chapman and Cutler LLP. "I am pleased to see Coe offering this type of experience and connecting students with alumni in this and other ways."

During their visit at Chapman and Cutler, students met with attorneys from the law firm, as well as professionals in project management, human resources, accounting, marketing, event planning and data management. The firm employs over 500 people in a variety of career fields.

Participants also visited BP, the largest producer of both oil and natural gas in the United States. Led by Head of Human Resources for Global Oil Americas at BP Beth Cook '98, BP provided an overview of the company and one of its business segments, Integrated Supply and Trading. Students heard about many career options within the organization and participated in a trading simulation.

"The students who participated were bright, engaged and did their research on my company, which showed up well to my colleagues that assisted with the overview," Cook. "It was an amazing experience and something more alumni should get involved with and students should take advantage of."

Charles Davis '86, a business consultant for non-profit organizations, hosted the group and Chicago-area alumni for a networking event at his home near Soldier Field. He said the externship reminded him of the two internships he completed while attending Coe.

"Watching the students network and being proactive with questions, giving their resumes and business cards was very impressive," Davis said. "The students truly seemed like they had a great time and learned a lot."

Director for External Partnerships Barb Ernst Tupper '89 called the spring break externship an amazing opportunity.

"Our alumni are generous in so many ways, and their involvement in this experience was no exception," she said. "Students saw first-hand what it means when we say 'Once a Kohawk, Always a Kohawk' and learned the value of networking while getting multiple opportunities to practice it. 'Our connections become your connections' came alive on this trip, and the Alumni Office and Center for Creativity and Careers look forward to planning more programs like this that bring students and alumni together."

Spring break externship participants met with Fred Rose '11, who talked about his career path and his role at SuperNova. The entrepreneurial tech start-up company delivers education, tools and solutions that empower individuals, banks, advisors and their firms to benefit from the power of comprehensive, holistic wealth management.

Alumna delivers drug talks to Coe community

Rebecca Anderson '71 and her Coe faculty advisor, Chemistry Professor Emeritus Stan Watkins, catch up at Thursday Forum.
Rebecca Anderson '71 and her Coe faculty advisor, Chemistry Professor Emeritus Stan Watkins, catch up at Thursday Forum.

Freelance medical and scientific writer Rebecca Anderson '71 returned to Coe in March to lead a Thursday Forum series on prescription drugs.

Contemporary issues affecting patients, doctors, drug makers and regulators was the focus of the series given to an attentive audience of adult learners. The series covered everything from significant historical events and drug discovery to clinical trials and regulatory oversight.

The timely series was delivered as federal legislators considered a proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act popularly known as Obamacare. Meanwhile, Iowa lawmakers considered a "right to try" bill that would give residents facing terminal illness access to medicines that have passed Phase 1 of the Food and Drug Administration's approval process but are not yet on pharmacy shelves.

Anderson holds a bachelor's in chemistry from Coe and earned her Ph.D. in pharmacology from Georgetown University. She has 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical research and development and now works as a technical writer. Her most recent book is "Nevirapine and the Quest to End Pediatric AIDS."

The book was the subject of a seminar Anderson gave to Coe chemistry students March 29.

Anderson said she enjoys meeting with students and faculty during her visits to Coe. Her extended stay in March also allowed her to chat with Thursday Forum regulars like Chemistry Professor Emeritus Stan Watkins, her faculty advisor at Coe. She also returned to Fort Madison on weekends to visit family in her hometown.

A resident of California for the past 20 years, Anderson experienced an unfamiliar climate as winter persisted through March in Iowa. "Your late season snow storm kind of took me by surprise," she said.

Thursday Forum lectures are held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus. Each session begins with coffee and pastries from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. A luncheon is offered at the conclusion of each series.

Courses are usually taught by Coe faculty, although occasionally presenters with an association to the college are invited to participate. The classes blend lecture, use of media such as film and music, and discussion.

Thursday Forum was the brainchild of Eliza "Roby" Hickok Kesler '31, who informed then-President John Brown in 1988 that Coe needed to mount a program that would compete with Cornell College's lecture series. James Y. Canfield Professor of Psychology Wendy Dunn, then associate dean of the faculty, worked with Kesler to establish the program and form the Thursday Forum advisory committee. Thursday Forum debuted in January 1989.

The advisory committee, a group of about a dozen regular attendees and supporters, determines the year's programming based on proposals solicited of Coe faculty. Occasionally, a special topic is suggested and presenters are recruited.

Stookey colleague donates book proceeds to Coe

Photosenseitive Glass and Glass-CeramicsTwo years after the death of CorningWare inventor S. Donald Stookey '36, Coe continues to benefit from its ties to the magna cum laude graduate and Founders' Medal recipient.

Corning colleague Nick Borrelli is donating royalties from his book, "Photosensitive Glasses and Glass-Ceramics," to Coe in Stookey's honor. Borrelli recently donated $2,500 - an amount doubled through Corning's matching gift program - representing initial royalties he received from the publisher.

"The proceeds are not going to amount to much and, since the book was entirely written at work, I felt the monetary rewards should go to help some young scientist," Borrelli said.

"Photosensitive Glasses and Glass-Ceramics" is a highly technical book written for scientists in the field, Borrelli said. It contains many examples of Stookey's novel glasses.

The book discusses how glass and glass ceramic interact with light, both transiently and permanently. It includes ways that light permanently alters the properties of glass and glass ceramic like the color, refractive index, and mechanical and chemical behaviors. Each photochromatic phenomenon is discussed in detail from the physical and chemical origin to the method fabrication and, ultimately, to their utilization.

The book, 229 pages with 16 color and 197 black and white illustrations, is available in hardback from CRC Press for $239.95. The eBook version is available for $167.97. ISBN 9781498745697.

Borrelli, a corporate research fellow at Corning, received his master's and Ph.D. in engineering from the University of Rochester (New York). He started at Corning in 1962 as a research scientist. Borrelli holds 151 U.S. patents and received the President's Award from the International Commission on Glass, given for lifetime achievement in glass science.

Stookey died at age 99 in November 2014. He had more than 60 patents to his credit and received numerous awards over the years for his inventions and contributions to the development of ceramics, eyeglasses, sunglasses, cookware, defense systems and electronics.

Born in Hay Springs, Nebraska, Stookey moved to Cedar Rapids with his family when he was 6. He attended Coe - where his grandfather, Stephen Stookey 1884, was previously a professor, dean and interim president from 1904-05 - and graduated with a bachelor's in chemistry and mathematics. He went on to earn his master's in chemistry from Lafayette College and his doctorate in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Stookey went to work for Corning Glass Works in 1940, performing research on glass and ceramics that led to several inventions. "Glass chemistry research had barely started," he once told the American Ceramic Society Bulletin. "My main objective was to be a pioneer, discover new things, produce things that had never been seen before."

Stookey retired from Corning in 1987 after a career of 47 years. He received Coe's Alumni Award of Merit in 1955, an honorary doctor of science degree in 1963, and the Founders' Medal in 1980. In 1986, he received the National Medal of Technology from President Ronald Reagan and he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2010. His autobiography, "Explorations in Glass," was published in 2000.

"The passing of Don Stookey represents an end of a unique era of Corning's innovative research," Borrelli told Chemical & Engineering News upon the death of his Corning colleague. "I had the pleasure to know and work with Don for many years and as yet have never met a more inventive scientist. In a way, I am still working with Don, since many of my present research projects link back to his pioneering efforts."

In recognition of creating innovative programs to prepare students for career success, Coe College was recently named Iowa's ACT Career Preparedness Exemplar as part of the 2016-17 ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign. The campaign identifies exemplars in each of four categories—students, high schools, postsecondary institutions and employers—from each participating state.

Coe received the award for two specific initiatives, both of which link Coe's broad-based liberal arts education with career preparation. As part of college's current strategic plan, "A Bolder Coe," the college has created a new Center for Creativity and Careers. Within this center, Coe focuses on providing meaningful connections between students and the world of work, with an emphasis on leveraging alumni connections. Last September, the college created a new internship specialist position to expand and improve the college's internship program across all disciplines.

"Coe's mission includes goals that prepare students for life following graduation and emphasizes the fundamental abilities of communicating clearly, working productively as team members, making informed judgments, and fostering and sustaining an attitude of intellectual curiosity and creativity," said Director for External Partnerships Barb Ernst Tupper '89. "We believe the new Center for Creative and Careers not only helps Coe achieve its core mission, but also enhances students' experiences and leads them to career success beyond academics."

Along with the Center for Creativity and Careers initiatives, a pilot psychology internship program has been developed to promote career success by helping students explore psychology-related careers and develop the applied knowledge necessary for those careers. Students enroll in the Applied Contemporary Psychology (ACP) class before undertaking an internship experience. The ACP course serves as a guide for students to gain a better sense of their vocational abilities, potential areas for professional growth and career-related interests. Course content focuses on critical prerequisite skills, including written and verbal communication such as mock interviews, networking, leadership, and preparation of professional resumes, cover letters and personal statements for the job market.

The Applied Contemporary Psychology (ACP) course was developed by Coe Assistant Professor of Psychology Benge Tallman '04. In its second year, the course has already increased the number of psychology students completing internships by six-fold.

"The psychology internship program, in conjunction with the Center for Creativity and Careers, has significantly strengthened Coe's footprint in the Cedar Rapids community as an emerging leader in training critical thinkers who are flexible, adaptable and liberally educated," said Tallman. "Above all, the most exciting and influential impact of the psychology internship program has been the student success stories. Students rave about how transformational their internship experiences have been toward their personal and professional goals."

Established in 2013, the annual ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign celebrates achievements and creates awareness around the goal of college and career readiness for all. ACT developed the campaign to recognize the individuals and institutions doing more with less, overcoming personal or community obstacles, and serving as examples to others working to improve the condition of college and career readiness for all.

ACT State Councils - comprised of education and workforce professionals in each state - selected the Coe College programs for the state exemplar designation from a group of applicants for the Iowa ACT Career Preparedness Award.

"Each year we are proud to recognize exemplary students, high schools, postsecondary institutions and employers working to advance the condition of college and career readiness in their communities," said Scott Montgomery, ACT senior vice president of public affairs. "The individuals and groups named ACT state exemplars demonstrate perseverance and innovative thinking, and serve as examples to others working to improve college and career readiness for all."

Coe and the other state exemplars will now be considered for national semifinalist status by an ACT Selection Committee, which will narrow the talented group into four national semifinalists per category. Finally, a national selection committee will choose one semifinalist per category to make up four national exemplars. These national exemplars will be honored at an ACT recognition event in late fall 2017 in Iowa City.


Coe receives Corridor Worksite Wellness Award

Coe College was recently recognized as one of the top three employers in the "greater than 750 Employee" category as part of the Corridor Worksite Wellness Awards at the Corridor Business Journal Health Care Summit.

Corridor Worksite Wellness Awards acknowledge workplaces that promote organization-wide health and wellness. There are five categories based on the size of the organization, with an additional award given to the organization with the most improved score.

The awards are determined by the Corridor Worksite Wellness Committee based on a score from an assessment made available to all employers in Linn and Johnson Counties. Non-affiliated parties are able to submit nominations on behalf of an organization, in addition to organizations being able to submit assessment on their own behalf.

This year's assessment was changed to allow for online submissions and nominations. Organizations also had the opportunity to host members of the committee on the site.

The Coe College Wellness Committee is comprised of faculty and staff who are dedicated to promoting wellness, fitness and healthy lifestyles. The philosophy of the committee members is that wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The model used on the Coe campus includes social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to the quality of life.
