In Memoriam

Monday, Jul. 19, 2010

I had the privilege to occasionally work with “Papa Loc” through my student involvement as an undergrad and he epitomized the three Cs he so deeply instilled in the SCU community — leading with competence, conscience and compassion. His "can do" attitude was infectious and motivated me to take an active role at SCU beyond the classroom. He always made himself accessible for students, faculty and staff and will be deeply missed. I fondly remember chatting with him over a meal about the importance of being a citizen of a global society and proactively taking action in order to be an agent of change. These words resonate with me even stronger today in both my personal and professional lives. You have left an indelible imprint on SCU, Fr. Locatelli, and your legacy will endure. Thank you for your selfless acts of kindness, dedication and commitment to making SCU the prominent example of Jesuit higher education it is today.
