“There Are No Self-Made People”

While dining at Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Marion, John Gunter is asked why he has generously supported his alma mater. He responds without hesitation.

“A Heart of Gold”

After starring for the Saluki football team in the late 1960s, Carl Mauck ’69 embarked on a 13-year playing career with four teams in the National Football League. The SIU business management major then subsequently served more than 21 years as a NFL assistant coach.

SHAPING THE FUTURE U

Norma Faust

“People at SIU have not forgotten me as an alumna. Some seek my advice. Others include me in events and continue to make me feel special—and did even before they knew I had included SIU in my will.”

Chris Phan

“SIU School of Law gave me the professional education to become a Navy JAG officer. This amazing opportunity allowed me to successfully run for Garden Grove, Calif., city council and be an Orange County deputy district attorney.”

Jan Thomas Pasek

“I really grew up at SIU. The university, its faculty and fellow students gave me confidence about myself that I was lacking when I first entered the school.”
