Bob Labozetta ’69, MA ’75 writes: "After 33+ years teaching at the secondary and lately the community college level, I have retired my chalk and white board pens, closed my grading software, and boxed my PowerPoint presentations and lessons. The last six years my wife, Susan, and I resided in Oregon, and last summer decided to chuck it all and travel full-time. We sold our home and most of our possessions, bought a motorhome, and now see the USA (but not in a Chevrolet). While Susan continues her art (sculpture), I may put my SCU education to work by writing who-knows-what. Figuring out how to brew beer on the road, fishing across this great land, and viewing historical sites that I discussed in the classroom but never took the opportunity to visit are prominent objectives as well."

Charles Foley ’69 writes: In March 2013 Texas A&M University published my biography of the first Catholic bishop in Texas, French Vincentian Jean-Marie Odin.
