In Remembrance

Wednesday, Jul. 21, 2010

In the years that I attended SCU, I never met Father Locatelli face to face. I did, however, feel the effects of his leadership in the University and its students. As president he cultivated a community of scholars who would become active participants in our global neighborhoods. As spiritual leader, he promoted the overall sense of openness and welcoming atmosphere I felt every time I walked onto campus. Though saddened to hear of his passing, I know that Father Locatelli left a lasting impression not only at SCU, but on me. He was a mover and a shaker in Silicon Valley and I feel blessed to have been a student under his leadership.
