Senator leads regional legislative group

John Chichester (BAD '59), a Virginia state senator, was unanimously elected chairman of the Southern Legislative Conference (SLC) for 1994-95 by legislators from the 16 member states. The SLC fosters intergovernmental cooperation in the South through organizing regional and state-by-state responses to governmental problems. As chair of the conference, Chichester will lead the organization in addressing such issues as health-care reform, violent crime, and the impact of unfunded federal mandates on the South.

Rowell heads new petroleum technology council

Deborah Rowell (ECON M.S. '76) has been named executive director of the new Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC), a national umbrella organization formed to speed technology transfer to U.S. oil and natural gas producers. Rowell hopes the program will help energy producers locate reservoirs of oil and gas and comply with environmental standards while producing a high volume of oil and gas at a reasonable price. "If our energy producers are fully utilizing the newest technology, their efficiency will make it unlikely that our country could be crippled by an oil embargo," she says. Rowell heads the PTTC Washington, D.C., staff and sits on the board with regional representatives from across the United States and executives from oil and gas companies including Texaco and Interstate Oil and Gas. The program is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy, the Gas Research Institute, several state governments, and industry.

A reel career in Hollywood

As supervising editor at the Disney Studios for five years, John Carnochan (ARCH '71) edited such animated films as "The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast," and "The Lion King." Now Carnochan is part of a team setting up a feature animation division at Warner Brothers. "My architecture degree from Tech--the only degree I have--gave me a basic design background that is a pretty good match for the work I do," Carnochan says. "Animation is a long process that requires a lot of design and imagination with attention to details. Those things are also important in architecture." Today's animated film combines artistry and imagination with high-end computer graphic systems. Carnochan's involvement in film began in his student days at Tech, where he made several short documentaries. After graduation, he worked for the campus film unit before moving on to edit action films for National Geographic, Jacques Cousteau, and HBO. In addition to his duties as supervising editor at Warner Bros., Carnochan is helping to design studio facilities for the animation unit.

Expanding ties for minority architects

As president of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) for the past two years, Robert L. Easter (MARCH '79) helped the organization more than quadruple its membership. Easter worked to involve the organization in national political issues and international affairs. He assisted South Africans in the formation of the Association of Black Architects, a sister organization to NOMA, and worked to bridge relationships between black and white architects in that nation. Easter is president of Kelso & Easter Inc., an architecture, interiors, and urban design firm in Richmond and Alexandria, Va. He also is an ordained minister and is enrolled in additional graduate studies at the Divinity School at Howard University. Concurrent with a four-year tour of duty with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, he began practicing architecture in 1979 as a project designer for Ford & Associates Inc. in Baltimore. He is active in community, civic, and professional activities, including work through the Alexandria Sheriff's office and the District of Columbia Department of Corrections as a volunteer in penal facilities. His professional and volunteer work has been recognized in such national publications as the New York Times, Progressive Architecture Magazine, and Inform Magazine.

Hopewell named top financial advisor

Lynn Hopewell (Phys '60), president of the Monitor Group investment advising firm in Falls Church, Va., was voted one of the top 60 financial advisers in the country by Worth magazine. Hopewell, who specializes in retirement planning for clients with an average net worth of $1 million, was one of four top advisors featured in the October 1994 issue of Worth. Hopewell also was recently appointed to Virginia Governor George Allen's Commission on Champion Schools. The 49-member commission has been charged with crafting a plan to restore academic integrity and improve the academic performance of Virginia's students. Hopewell is a former electronics engineer and computer consultant who earned an M.B.A. at Harvard University. He also edits the Journal of Financial Planning.

Her career path: service

Since receiving the Wentworth Community Nutrition Award as a Virginia Tech senior, Joy Horner (HNF '92) has continued her service to others on three continents. After graduation, Horner worked for Romanian Orphans Social and Education Services, serving as nutritionist on a multi-disciplinary team in a Romanian orphanage. While there, she made a commitment to the Mennonite Central Committee to work as a nutritionist in Brazil. After only six months in Brazil, a family emergency pulled Horner back to the United states, but not away from service activities. She now works in Washington, D.C., as a food-service coordinator for Christ House, a 34-bed hospital for homeless men. In addition to critical medical care under the direction of four live-in doctors, the staff provides assistance with housing and job placement. "It wouldn't make sense just to turn the men back out onto the street when they recover physically," she says. Horner's Virginia Tech classes in international development led her to believe that service must include impowerment. "I have chosen to be involved in projects that don't create dependency," she says. She hopes to return to Brazil within a year or two.

No stranger to fiction

A story that began in Virginia Tech's Pritchard Hall has spun out into short stories in one of the country's leading science fiction magazines. Tom Ligon Jr. (ETE, BIOL '75) has published eight stories (two cover stories) in Dell Publishing's Analog Magazine. He says the stories have emerged from a novel he began writing as an antidote to his Virginia Tech Engineering texts. He started writing a novel, which, although still unfinished, has furnished material he's been spinning off lately as stories that Analog editors find extremely interesting. In his day job, Ligon says he "breaks things" for ARTECH Corp., a Chantilly, Va., testing firm. "I do destructive testing," he says. "Every day it's something different; sometimes it's cars, sometimes it's rocket parts, sometimes it's consumer products--Today I'm trying to break electrical cords." Ligon's official job title is engineering technologist because he's proud of the title of his Virginia Tech major. Ligon is disappointed that Virginia Tech phased out the laboratory-oriented, highly hands-on engineering technology program. This background has been very useful, both on the job and in his fiction, Ligon says.

Names added to War Memorial Pylons

On Dec. 6, 1994, four more names of Virginia Tech alumni who died in military combat were engraved on the pylons of the War Memorial. Those added were: B.B. Hawks Jr. (BAD '41), who died in World War II; Medal of Honor recipient Richard Thomas Shea Jr. ('48) who died during the Korean conflict; and Donaldson P. Tillar III (ME '88) and Michael N. Manns Jr. (GASC '90), both of whom died in Desert Storm. Shea's name also is engraved on the War Memorial cenotaph, along with the names of six other Virginia Tech alumni who received The Medal of Honor. The Virginia Tech Alumni Association is responsible for confirming that individuals reported as killed in action were Tech alumni, and that they were, in fact, killed in combat. Names of alumni who have lost their lives in military service other than combat may not be engraved on the pylons.

G. Burke Johnston, first arts and sciences dean, dies

G. Burke Johnston, 87, former dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, died Jan. 1. Johnston came to Virginia Tech as an English teacher in 1930 and, in 1963, became dean of the college he helped to found. Johnston, nationally known as a Shakespearean scholar, also wrote two books on author Ben Johnson. He hand set type to print copies of his poetry for friends on a home press. He also sculpted, painted, and carved wooden figurines related to stories he had read. Johnston remained active at Virginia Tech after his retirement in 1974. The G. Burke Johnston Student Center, built on the site behind Burruss Hall where Johnston once lived, was named for him in 1990. Johnston was a native of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and a graduate of the University of Alabama and Columbia University. Contributions may be made in his name to the Virginia Tech Educational Foundation, care of University Development, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0336.

You Are Old, Father Johnston
by Bill Lipscomb

"You are old, Father Johnston," the grandson said. "You've more books than there's salt in the sea. I doubt there's a volume you haven't yet read. Why don't you discard two or three?" "These myriad tomes," Father Johnston replied, "Keep a bookworm from feeling alone. And when I'm especially lonesome inside, I publish a book of my own." "You are old," said the youth to the affable sage. "For the perilous rigors of sport. But you keep playing tennis with men half your age, And you run them all over the court." Said Johnston, "I no longer serve very fast, Though it's true that I've added some spin. I can't run as well as I did in the past, But I seem to have aced you again." "You are old," said the grandson, "and long since retired, Yet the pages still roll off your press. Your sculptures and poems are widely admired, And you play like a master at chess." "I dabble in Renaissance arts," Johnston said, "Though my efforts are trifling and mean. In games I'm a novice; why, you were ahead Till I traded my pawn for a queen." "You are old," said the grandson, "and yet you protest That your schooling has barely begun. You should clean out your basement and go get some rest, But you seem to be having such fun." "I must save my breath, I am needed tonight," Johnston answered, "for matters more weighty. Mary Tabb's baked a cake, and its candles burn bright. I am planning to blow out all eighty."

He also was senior vice president of Chaney, Thomas, Stephenson and Hill Inc., an insurance and bonding agency. Hoback served as president and director of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets Alumni Inc. He was a member of the board of directors of the Virginia Tech Foundation, the Virginia Tech Alumni Association, and was a charter member of the Ut Prosim Society. He served as national chairman for the Virginia Tech Campaign for Excellence regional campaign committee and was president of the Hotel Roanoke Foundation. He was past director of the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Retail Merchants Association, and the Merchants Association of the Roanoke Valley. Contributions may be made to the Harold N. Hoback Endowed Merit Scholarship for the Corps of Cadets, c/o University Development, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0336.

Crash kills alumnus on bowl trip

Sidney Page Lavinder (MSCI '90) died in a car crash near Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 30 as he was traveling to see Virginia Tech play in the Gator Bowl. Also in the car were his brother Drew (MSCI '92) and his college roommate, Paul Aliff (FIN '90). Neither was seriously injured. Lavinder, who was working on an M.B.A. at Duke University while employed as an executive at Precision Fabrics in Greensboro, N.C., regularly attended Virginia Tech football games. His father, Samuel Lavinder (BAD '60), and older brother, Brent (PSCI '85), both of Collinsville, are also Tech alumni.
