Seniors weigh options for class Legacy Fund options

first_imgAfter sifting through hundreds of suggestions from Notre Dame seniors, the final options for the Class of 2011 Legacy Fund focus on helping students who are in need of financial assistance. Each year, the Student Development Committee (SDC) chooses a few ideas for the fund and the senior class votes on them and chooses where they would like their donations to go. There are five choices this year, and the voting began about a week ago and will most likely extend until Wednesday, said SDC Co-Chairs Maggie Nettesheim and Maria Sellers. “Something we definitely thought about a lot is that we wanted it to be something that would continue to make a difference on campus,” Nettesheim said. “We wanted it to be something that would improve life on campus and would continue to do so.” This year’s choices focus on providing funds for students who are in need of financial aid for a variety of occasions. The first option is a study abroad assistance fund. This program would be designed for students on financial aid who wish to go to abroad, Nettesheim said. “If they choose to go abroad, it would give them a little more spending money,” Nettesheim said. The second choice is a partial tuition scholarship for incoming freshmen each year. Seniors’ third option is a stipend for students who would like to do summer service, but aren’t sure where their funds would come from. “The summer service one would be a fund for those who want to do service, international or national, but they don’t have funds for where they’re living,” Sellers said. Nettesheim said it would be particularly useful for students who do not feel they could give up a summer income, and it could apply to any service endeavor, even if it’s not through Notre Dame. The fourth choice is an emergency assistance fund. This money could be used at the discretion of rectors in the event of an emergency, such as a death in the family of a student who is unable to cover the price of a plane ticket home. The last option is a donation to RecSports, which would allow for the purchase of new uniforms or equipment. SDC used multiple sources to gauge where the seniors wanted the fund to go to, including booths at senior events and an online poll. Nettesheim said this year’s senior class was very enthusiastic in contributing ideas. “We got probably 200 suggestions from the senior class when we did the online poll,” Nettesheim said. “We in the committee then narrowed it down from those suggestions.” The final outcome of the vote will most likely be announced in December. Tim Ponisciak, the assistant director of the Annual Fund, said the Senior Legacy Fund can generate anywhere from $60,000 to $100,000. Contributing to the Senior Legacy is the first step into the Annual Fund, which is a general fund that accepts donations to support “virtually everything under the Dome,” such as financial aid for students or advancing Notre Dame’s Catholic mission, according to its website. “In the spring we’ll send out a letter and brochure telling them about the sponsored fund, but also telling them a little about the Annual Fund,” Ponisciak said. Ponisciak said seniors are encouraged to contribute to the sponsored legacy fund, but they are also welcome to make a donation to any other fund at Notre Dame. “For a senior to participate in the legacy they don’t have to give to the sponsored fund,” Ponisciak said. “They can participate in another aspect of campus that they feel strongly about.” Although it is targeted toward the current seniors, other members of the Notre Dame community can contribute to the legacy as well. “Through the phone center, we call their parents to see if the parents want to give on their behalf,” Nettesheim said. “Also, that fund stays in existence. Any alumni really could donate.” For Nettesheim, the Senior Legacy Fund is important because it gives seniors the opportunity to give back to the University that gave so much to them. “I think most of us leave Notre Dame feeling like it’s been the best four years of our lives,” Nettesheim said. “And if you can get seniors exciting about giving back to the university and start that commitment early then I think that’s great.”last_img read more

Dustin Garneau’s first stint with Angels is a real homecoming

first_imgGarneau, 31, signed a minor league contract last November with the Angels, his fourth organization. He was batting .247 for Salt Lake with a .368 on-base percentage and .589 slugging percentage at the time of his call-up.A veteran of 696 minor league games, Garneau has appeared in 88 major league games with the Rockies, A’s and White Sox. He has a .194 batting average and five home runs in 252 MLB at-bats.“Good receiver,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said of Garneau. “He’s been swinging the bat well in Salt Lake, takes a lot of pride in working with the pitchers, which is important. He’ll fit right in.”Although Garneau’s next game in an Angels uniform will be his first since spring training, the organization has taken steps to ensure a seamless transition from the minors to the majors. All the Angels’ catchers were briefed on signs in spring training. Hitting coach Shawn Wooten is with Salt Lake now, Ausmus said.“I’ve been working with … all the hitting guys to change my swing for the better,” Garneau said. “I got real comfortable the last couple weeks with all the big changes I made. And with my receiving and catching stuff, it’s been all Eddy (Rodriguez) the catching coordinator with Jake Guzman too. It’s been fun working through some stuff.” ANAHEIM — Angels catcher Dustin Garneau grew up in San Pedro. He attended San Pedro High, then Cal State Fullerton, then traversed the minor-league landscape of the Colorado Rockies’ system for parts of nine seasons.Wednesday, he learned what it was like to drive from his house to his office.“I live two exits up the freeway,” he said.One day after he was pulled from a Triple-A game in Sacramento, Garneau was selected to the Angels’ 40-man roster and joined the major league club for Wednesday’s series finale against the Twins. He takes the place of backup catcher Kevan Smith, who was placed on the seven-day injured list. The seven-day IL is reserved for players diagnosed with a concussion, the unfortunate byproduct of a foul ball that caromed off Smith’s mask on Tuesday night. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img SIMMONS UPDATEShortstop Andrelton Simmons met with a foot and ankle specialist Wednesday, one day after he was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 3 sprain in his left ankle. He was not given a formal timetable for a return to game action.Simmons said the specialist was able to formally rule out the possibility of surgery. He’s expected to keep his foot in a protective boot for another 1-2 weeks, until his swelling subsides to the point where he’s able to walk without the boot. At that point, he can resume throwing, working out, and other baseball activities. Simmons will presumably need a minor league rehabilitation assignment after that.If the Grade 2 sprain that befell Simmons’ right ankle last year is any indication, the 29-year-old shortstop will exceed whatever expectations are set forth for this recovery.“Normal might have taken like three weeks,” he said of the last ankle sprain. “But I thought I was ready to play after like five, six days. It was still not ideal, but you know. I’m not expecting that quick a recovery, but I’m hoping for a miracle.”ROTATION PLANSAndrew Heaney is expected to throw a bullpen on Friday. The left-hander remains a candidate to start Sunday’s game against the Texas Rangers, an assignment that is still officially to be determined.Heaney hasn’t faced major league hitters since March, when he was beset by elbow inflammation. In a rehab start with Salt Lake on Monday, he struck out 10 batters in 4⅔ innings.“I threw like two-thirds of an inning in spring training so there wasn’t any progression,” Heaney said. “I had nothing to start from. The goal was to simulate what a spring training progression would be. … I’ve been feeling good physically and mechanically for weeks now.”The Angels’ starting rotation is full, and Ausmus said he’s considered moving to a six-man rotation. Griffin Canning and Tyler Skaggs are scheduled to start Friday and Saturday, respectively, against the Texas Rangers. Beyond that is anyone’s guess.“Let’s wait to see what happens with Heaney first before we start slotting other people,” Ausmus said. “We don’t wanna go to a seven-man rotation. One step at a time.”UP NEXTTwins (LHP Martin Perez, 6-1, 2.89 ERA) at Angels (RHP Matt Harvey, 2-3, 6.35 ERA), Thursday, 1:07 p.m., Fox Sports West, MLB (out of market only), 830 AMRangers (LHP Drew Smyly, 0-3, 6.51 ERA) at Angels (RHP Griffin Canning, 2-1, 3.80 ERA), Friday, 7:07 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830 AMlast_img read more
