Editor’s Note

Working for the University of Denver Magazine, I’m constantly reminded of how remarkable our DU family is. Of course, the students, faculty and staff on campus are tremendous, but it’s the alumni who most amaze me.

In this job, I meet or hear from alumni nearly every day. They send class notes and share memories and bits of nostalgia. They forward news of family members and fellow Pioneers. I’ve formed friendships with those who call or write regularly and look forward to hearing their updates and feedback. Most of the news alumni share eventually winds up in the pages of the University of Denver Magazine or in our online news publication DU Today.

The backgrounds of our alumni are as diverse as their life callings. They are following their passions and living lives of meaning and purpose. Their stories recharge me.

You’ll read about some of those remarkable, inspirational alumni in this issue, including solar energy pioneer George Lof, benefactor and trustee Donald Sturm and Ryan Greenawalt, national board director of the Log Cabin Republicans.

You’ll also read about alumna Lori Ware, whose son, Seph, is pictured on our cover. He has a fatal form of muscular dystrophy, and Lori is in the fight of her life to save him. I had the great pleasure of meeting Lori and Seph when they visited campus in August. Seph’s gigantic spirit and Lori’s love, faith and passion have moved all of us who have worked on that article. I find myself thinking of them often and praying for their family.

I hope that the stories in this issue leave you feeling inspired, informed, entertained and connected to your DU family.

Please keep the stories coming.
