The statue honors the De La Salle Christian Brothers’ 80 years of service to Saint Mary’s. Benefactors of the project, Bernie and Jan Wagnild, Robert ’49 and Frances Perry CST ’51 Skemp, and the Class of 2013, were recognized.
A new bust of Brother James Miller ’66, for whom Residencia Santiago Miller is named, was dedicated Oct. 8 during an informal ceremony. The bust is located between the Residencia and Brother Leopold Hall. Brother James was doing “God’s work” of bringing education, faith and hope to marginalized Guatemalans when he was killed on Feb. 13, 1982. Four gunmen shot Brother James as he was mending a wall outside the De La Salle Casa Indigena where he worked.
