Amazing Father Locatelli

Wednesday, Jul. 14, 2010

I was fortunate to have Father Locatelli as an accounting professor for 4 quarters in 1976 thorugh 1978. We had the first accounting class in Kenna 102, a large lecture hall for a class of about 80 students. Father Locatelli would ask questions and then call on the students. The amazing thing was that Father Locatelli knew our names when he called on us before he had ever met us! It turns out that he had memorized the names to the faces from looking at the "Freshman Record" photo album. He was an amazing man and this was just one small hidden example of the care he had for all he met
