Andrew Hovel, MHS Alum, Man of Extraordinary Service Award - The Caritas Man of Extraordinary Service Award was created this year through the generosity of an anonymous donor to honor Saint John's undergraduate men that have demonstrated dedication to serving others both at CSB/SJU and/or the local community. These men show a commitment to society through an active participation in student leadership, civic leadership and social leadership. They are or have been actively involved with service organizations, student activities, and/or academic services. This year one freshman Johnnie, one Sophomore Johnnie, one Junior Johnnie, and one Senior Johnnie will be chosen to receive this award. Each Man of Extraordinary Service designates a volunteer organization to receive a $500 cash award in his or her name; each student designates a volunteer organization to receive a $500 cash award in his or her name. Early in the spring semester, call for nominations is issued to CSB/SJU students, staff, and faculty.

Calvin Weber is a member of the Morton Rink and his team won the US Trials over this past weekend for the 2011 World University Games. Looks like each individual player is responsible for their airfare to Istanbul, Turkey (from Istanbul to Erzurum airfare and food & lodging in the Athletes Village is all picked up by USA Curling). Since no one goes to Turkey in the winter it looks like a Chicago to Istanbul flight can be purchased for $700 RT, not bad. Anyway pretty exciting news for the team, they recently were measured for clothing by Nike and will receive a lot of free swag for qualifying.
