Zecevic, Aleksander
Aleksander Zecevic M.S. '90, Ph.D. '93 is one of four recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award, presented by Santa Clara's School of Engineering, for distinguished accomplishments in service to his profession, community, and the University.
 
As professor of Electrical Engineering at Santa Clara University for the past 20 years, Dr. Zecevic also serves as associate dean for Graduate Engineering Programs. His research in the control of complex dynamic systems has resulted in a book and more than 40 publications in leading journals. His interest in the intersection between science and religion has opened the door to a constructive dialogue that transcends simplistic arguments of religious fundamentalism and radical secularism, and has resulted in the publication of two books on the subject, as well as the development of a unique course, "Chaos Theory, Metamathematics and the Limits of Knowledge: A Scientific Perspective on Religion." An excellent educator and a deeply thoughtful collaborator, Dr. Zecevic's search for truth, beauty, and knowledge honor Santa Clara's Jesuit tradition.

Bonini, Sarah

Sarah Bonini J.D. '93 has joined the Campus Ministry staff as senior administrative assistant. Sarah has a long history with SCU, beginning with her work in Orradre Library in 1989. She served as a resident director for several years as well, and most recently worked with the Northern California Innocence Project as project manager since 2010. We are thrilled to have her share her administrative and pastoral gifts with our team.

Sarah will carry on the custom of sharing bereavement notices with the campus community on behalf of our members who have lost loved ones and wish to share that information. So many have found this tradition a means of both offering and receiving support in a time of grief.  It is our policy to send out information only if the SCU member wishes it to be shared. Please send any such information directly to Sarah at sbonini@scu.edu. You may include information about funeral or memorial services as well.

Bertelsen, Thomas

Thomas E. Bertelsen Jr. MA ’93, a longtime benefactor and board member of the Jesuit School of Theology, has helped launch a $230,000 endowed scholarship fund for the Berkeley-based school, in honor of Oakland Bishop Emeritus John S. Cummins.

The donations have created the John S. Cummins Endowed Scholarship Fund, which will be invested to provide scholarships for students from Asian countries – especially Mongolia, East Timor and Nepal — to attend JST. The first scholarship is expected to be awarded in the fall of 2014.
 
“We are grateful to Tom Bertelsen and the other donors for helping open wider the doors of JST to theology scholars around the world,” said Michael Engh, S.J. “This is true to the Jesuit Catholic spirit of advancing the mission of the Church, wherever the need is greatest.”
 
Bishop Cummins began his relationship with the Jesuit School of Theology in 1962, when he became chancellor of the Diocese of Oakland and was made liaison to the three Catholic theological schools that were part of the Graduate Theological Union. He served on the board of directors of JST for ten years, and will step down in June.
