first_imgThe day before receiving their degrees, three seniors and one ALM candidate at the Harvard Extension School were commissioned Wednesday as officers in the U.S. military. The late-morning ceremony took place in Tercentenary Theatre as hundreds looked on.Honored were Army 2nd Lts. Victoria Migdal of Pleasantville, N.Y., a neurobiology concentrator who will enter the Medical Corps after medical school at Vanderbilt University, and Nicole Unis of Lanesborough, Mass., a ALM degree candidate in finance assigned to the 6th Military Intelligence Battalion, 98th Regiment, at Fort Devens, Mass.; U.S. Navy Ensign Evan Roth of Canandaigua, N.Y., a government concentrator assigned to the USS Lassen based in Yokosuka, Japan; and U.S. Air Force 2nd Lt. Isaiah Peterson, a philosophy concentrator who will be commissioned into the Judge Advocate General’s Corps after law school at Georgetown University.Harvard’s relationship with the Reserve Officers’ Training Program (ROTC) dates to 1916.Before the ceremony, Roth waited with his family in front of the John Harvard Statue. Reflecting on his four-year climb to the end, a degree and a commission, he said, “We talk a lot about the ‘long crimson line.’ There’s a long legacy of service here.”Administering the oaths was Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. “You’re about to become part of a long and illustrious heritage,” he told the new officers, recounting service by Harvard graduates starting with the Revolution. “They have fought for America in every element there is, on the land, in the air, on, under, and above the sea.  And every time — every time — Harvard graduates have been there.”Mabus called the ceremony “a circle completed” in his own life. More than 40 years ago, as a fresh-minted Naval officer, he reported to his first ship in the Boston Naval Shipyard during the Vietnam War. “I am very proud that our country today may debate the purpose of a war,” he said, “but is united in support of the warriors who fight.Navy and Harvard ROTC veteran Bruce Johnstone ’62 welcomed the new officers to an experience of a lifetime. “You’re going to be their teacher, their mentor,” he said of people they will lead. “You’re going to be an inspiration.”Harvard President Drew Faust praised the new officers for “a choice that will continue to distinguish you among your classmates and among your fellow citizens.”President Drew Faust and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus applaud during the commissioning ceremony.

Curtis R. Stevens and Army Lt. Col. Timothy J. Hall, commanders of the ROTC units associated with Harvard. Stevens retires from the Navy at the end of this month and Hall will soon leave the Boston area for a new Army assignment in Germany. They have been “not just wonderful teachers and mentors for our students,” she said, “but wonderful colleagues — and diplomats — as we worked through the complexities to achieve what we celebrated with our two ribbon cuttings this past year.”A Naval ROTC office opened at Harvard’s Hilles Hall in September; an Army ROTC office opened there in March.“We have heard a great deal in the media this past year about the 1 percent — those at the pinnacle of the economic pyramid,” said Faust. “I want us to think for just a moment about a quite different 1 percent.  It actually is closer to one half of one 1 percent. This is the proportion of the American population that is enrolled in the military.”Faust reached into the past for a lesson. “The Founding Fathers cautioned that we as a nation must not permit the military to become separated from its society and its citizenry,” she said. “In the era of the All-Volunteer Force, we must be particularly attentive to this imperative.”last_img read more

first_imgIt’s 3:30 p.m., and Kevin Donahue is already running late to practice. With a game against Rutgers only three days away, the assistant coach of the men’s lacrosse team should have already started strategizing with his fellow coaches. So far, he’s nowhere to be found. Finally, 15 minutes into practice, Donahue saunters down the stairs of Hookway Field and nonchalantly takes his place on the sidelines with a lacrosse stick in hand.For the last 22 years, this has been Donahue’s life. Despite playing an integral role in nine of the program’s 11 championships, the assistant coach has never received a single paycheck from Syracuse University. None. He works for free.To make ends meet, Donahue has spent the last 31 years working as an earth science teacher in the West Genesee Central School District, primarily teaching eighth-graders at West Genesee Middle School.The double duty has left Donahue to shoulder the burden of a hectic schedule. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I’m up at 6, work by 7,’ Donahue said. ‘I work until 3 teaching at school. Then I change and drive to practice at 3:30. I get home around 7. Watch tape for a couple hours. Say hi to my wife at 10 o’clock and go to bed around 10:30.’So the occasional tardiness should be expected. But when does it become too much? Doesn’t he ever question his ability to juggle both?‘Just a couple hours ago,’ Donahue said with a slight hint of sarcasm.Mr. DonahueMost of Donahue’s students at West Genesee don’t know about their professor’s alter ego. In the classroom, he is recognized as Mr. Donahue, an expert on potential and kinetic energy. The students, however, aren’t aware that Mr. Donahue once emitted kinetic energy as a lacrosse player and now enacts potential energy on the sidelines. It took Jovan Miller, a junior midfielder and one of Donahue’s former middle school pupils, until high school to discover his former teacher’s other identity. During eighth grade, he had absolutely no clue.And Donahue wants to keep it that way. ‘I’d rather not tell (my students),’ Donahue said. ‘I don’t want them to see me in that light, to be honest with you. I don’t think they need to know. I’m their science teacher and that’s what I do.’Of course, every once in a while his cover is blown. About two weeks ago, a student caught a glimpse of Donahue on television and burst into class the following day to reveal the news.‘I saw you on TV yesterday,’ the student said to Donahue. ‘I hope I wasn’t picking my nose,’ he responded to deflect the attention.That’s simply Donahue’s personality. When his colleagues at West Genesee congratulate him on a victory, he politely accepts the praise and initiates a new conversation. Boasting isn’t a part of his repertoire. His brother, Tom, understands that better than anyone. Just ask him where his brother keeps his nine championship rings.‘They’re somewhere in a sock drawer at his house,’ Tom said. ‘He doesn’t display them because he doesn’t like the attention.’With his coaching pedigree, Donahue could have easily landed a paid coaching position at another Division I university. But he said he’d rather stay behind the scenes. He loves teaching at West Genesee way too much.‘I think if he wasn’t working up (at Syracuse), I think he’d still be right over at West Genny,’ said Bob Deegan, a former colleague of Donahue’s at Camillus Middle School. The Golden BoySyracuse head coach John Desko first noticed Donahue’s knack for teaching and leading in high school. During their time on the West Genesee High School lacrosse team in the early 1970s, Desko constantly teased Donahue for being the brainiac of the bunch. Each time the coaches praised Donahue in front of his teammates, it gave Desko more ammunition to fire off another joke.‘We used to call him the Golden Boy when he played in high school because he was the guy that was always doing the right things and the one coaches used as an example to the rest of the team,’ Desko said. ‘He was always a serious student and a committed athlete.’The Golden Boy eventually brought his Midas touch to Syracuse, where he co-captained the Orangemen alongside Desko to their first NCAA tournament appearance in 1979 and collected All-American honors for manning the team’s midfield three times, making first team in his final season. Meanwhile, off the lacrosse field, Donahue assembled his own collection of academic awards. In true Golden Boy form, he claimed dean’s list honors as he pursued a bachelor’s degree in biology.‘When I had time to watch TV, I ended up gravitating to the science shows or doing my own readings on science,’ Donahue said. ‘The material was just naturally interesting to me.’That passion for science paid off. Upon graduating from SU, Donahue immediately landed a job as a science teacher at Camillus Middle School. But in the process, he never once abandoned his passion for lacrosse. He needed athletics to complement his academic obligations. For the following seven years, Donahue served as the middle school lacrosse coach and as the JV assistant coach at West Genesee High School.That was until he got the call.The coachBob Deegan remembers when Donahue was offered a voluntary position on Roy Simmons Jr.’s coaching staff. Deegan, then a colleague at Camillus Middle School and the JV coach at West Genesee High School, said both he and Donahue were torn over the circumstances.    The opportunity to reunite with Desko and Simmons was appealing. The opportunity to leave a successful high school program that he established wasn’t. ‘It was a big decision,’ Deegan said. ‘He was a big part of our success at the high school here, too. He questioned the hassle and thought, ‘Am I going to be able to work it out where I can teach here, get up there on time, and still do the same kind of job as a teacher?”But that wasn’t the only stipulation. Donahue needed his wife’s blessing. By accepting the job, he would essentially inherit the burden of two full-time jobs, leaving little time for family life. That meant less time to talk. Less time for romantic outings. And a few more lonely nights. Despite all the detractions, Laurie Donahue encouraged her husband to resurrect the Golden Boy legacy and impart that knowledge to the future of Syracuse lacrosse. And Donahue claims he is forever indebted to her. ‘My wife allows me to do this,’ Donahue said. ‘She takes care of all the bills, the food being on the table, everything being washed. Without all the things she does, I wouldn’t have been able to do this at all. I’m up to here doing everything I do as is, but without her help doing all that, this would be impossible.’Donahue would be rewarded for his bold decision. In his first season on Simmons’ staff, he inherited the opportunity to mentor two talented twins from British Columbia — Paul and Gary Gait.And the Gait brothers flourished under his tutelage, collectively shattering NCAA scoring records and leading the Orangemen to two NCAA titles. They would eventually be inducted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame.But his list of his midfield protégés doesn’t stop there. Charlie Lockwood. Roy Colsey. Steve Vallone. His résumé is overflowing with stars he produced.‘A lot of that success at Syracuse is because of him,’ said Deegan, who still coaches at West Genesee. ‘You can see it right away. He has a knack for saying the right thing at the right time. It’s not an accident. He’s been through it. He’s studied it. He’s confident in what he’s doing and he’s good at what he does.’Once Desko took over in 1999, Donahue’s responsibilities as an assistant coach expanded even more. In addition to working with the midfielders, he was assigned to develop the squad’s faceoff men — an integral aspect of the Syracuse offense.It’s been Donahue’s specialty. Most notably, he molded Danny Brennan — a key cog in the Orange’s 2008 championship run — into a faceoff machine. During his senior year, Brennan etched his name into the record books, leading the nation with a 66.7 faceoff winning percentage.‘If you look at Syracuse lacrosse and the stats of our faceoff guys, Kevin (Donahue) is a huge part of that,’ Desko said. ‘He’s scouting the other team, getting guys ready for different techniques, evaluating our guys as far as which techniques they should be using against the opposing players.‘He’s a very important part of our coaching staff, and (there’s) not a lot of free time in the day for him, but he gets it all done.’And Donahue has nine championship rings to show for it.The family manDespite his success in both realms, Donahue continues to question his ability to juggle his responsibilities. When he first joined the SU coaching staff, Donahue only had his wife to worry about. Along the way, though, he became a father of three children — two boys and one girl.That’s where things get difficult. Donahue makes every effort to spend time with his family. He said he tries to have dinner with them. But it doesn’t usually happen.After practices, Donahue usually allocates time to evaluating game film and organizing his lesson plans for the following morning. The latter has proven to be a challenge, considering West Genesee recently implemented the use of SMART Board technology into its curriculum. ‘He’s actually had to work harder this year and with more passion because he has so much more information to express,’ said Collin, his eldest son and a junior attack for the Orange. ‘He still has a lot to learn.’He’s still learning how to deal with scheduling conflicts, too. Two weeks ago, Donahue’s youngest son, Dylan, played a lacrosse game against Baldwinsville High School — the team coached by his brother. Among family members, it was billed as the battle between the Donahues. Unfortunately for Kevin, he couldn’t attend. He was busy with his coaching commitments.‘It killed me not being there,’ Donahue said with his voice softening. ‘I don’t like missing their games. But I try to make it up to them other ways.’And Collin recognizes that. Growing up, he experienced his share of games without his father in attendance. But Collin said he always atoned for his absences during the school week.‘As hard as he worked, he always seemed to put aside a few minutes here and there to do things he enjoyed with us,’ Collin said. ‘He would have time to come out to the front yard and shoot around with us and do other things.’Those ‘other things’ also included some science talk. In addition to inheriting his father’s love for lacrosse, Collin also gained an affinity for science. And by college, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and pursue a degree in earth science education.But that’s what Donahue lives for. Whether it’s his son, his students or his players, he relishes the opportunity to instruct and influence anyone willing to learn.‘He’s the reason I’ve been shooting so well this year,’ said Miller, the SU midfielder. ‘And honestly, he treats me exactly like he treated me in class. He’s always upbeat. He’s a great teacher and listener. I think he’s literally one of the hidden secrets in college lacrosse.’[email protected] Published on April 19, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
