Nearly 350 alumni return to Winona during Reunion Weekend 2015

Nearly 350 alumni return to Winona during Reunion Weekend 2015

The stories got more interesting and the laughter got louder as the weekend went on. About 350 attendees enjoyed reconnecting with each other, as well as their alma mater during Saint Mary’s Reunion Weekend June 26-28. Alumni who hadn’t seen each other for decades reached out for firm handshakes and heartfelt hugs. Several alumni who hadn’t seen the Saint Mary’s campus since they graduated were amazed to see the growth of the university, as well as its extensive educational presence. The weekend included tours of the bluffs and campus, a fun run for all ages, a canoeing excursion, a community luau picnic, a chance to build a mosaic masterpiece, trolley rides through Winona hot spots, and more. Winona alumni also held class reunions all over campus, throughout the downtown, and beyond. A lively Golden Reunion class gathered Friday evening, and Brother William presented them with special diplomas proclaiming mastery of “the art and science of life experiences.” Saturday evening, special honors were given including: Distinguished Alumnus Award, William G. Jungbauer ’75, J.D. of North Oaks, Minn.; the Alumni Appreciation Award, William Herzog ’70 of Lakeville, Minn.; and the Outstanding Young Alumna Award, Jennifer (Folgers) Baertsch ’05 of Winona. Regardless of age, major, or location, alumni shared similar memories of excellent education, caring faculty, lifelong friendships, and a sense of community and belonging. It was a weekend of rekindling friendships, telling (and occasionally embellishing) stories, and celebrating the successes of Saint Mary’s and its alumni. Thanks go to all those who worked hard to prepare campus for these events. And thanks to everyone who attended; we hope you enjoyed your time with...
GIS students to help find missing Minnesota fort

GIS students to help find missing Minnesota fort

WINONA, Minn. — Today’s geospatial technology will soon be applied in the hunt for a 300-year-old historically significant site in Minnesota. The Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota M.S. in Geographic Information Science (GIS) program has been awarded a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant in the amount of $8,800. The Minnesota Historical Society awarded the grant as part of efforts to find the historical location of Fort L’Huillier, believed to be located near Mankato, Minn. Fort L’Huillier was founded by Pierre-Charles Le Sueur around 1700. Le Sueur had begun mining along the Blue Earth River, only to discover what he thought was copper ore was “blue” clay. When Le Sueur returned to the fort, he found it attacked and abandoned with no sign of the 20 original settlers. As the years passed, the location of the fort was lost. Numerous attempts to locate the fort, between 1835 to 1987, have been unsuccessful. The site is considered historically significant because this French Contact Phase location is important in the early history of Minnesota and the Upper Minnesota Valley. Last summer, Saint Mary’s students in the Advanced Modeling and Analysis GIS class, researched the fort’s location for about a week. The project fit perfectly with the course objectives: to explore “real-world” modeling scenarios with practical and applied scholarship. This summer, as part of the MHS grant, students will begin validating and expanding upon previous research, examining historical oral accounts and written documents for spatial clues. “We plan to bring some newer technology to this project,” said John Ebert, assistant professor and GIS program director. “We will go through historic documents to...
