Schultz, Bob

Bob Schultz ’69, chief of the medical staff at the Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa Medical Center, will be retiring in April. He has been a doctor at Kaiser for 30 years, and he has delivered about 2,500 babies and supervised 300 doctors and 1,100 other workers at the Santa Rosa complex. Schultz's 30-year career as an obstetrician-gynecologist and administrator parallels Kaiser's growth from a clinic at Creekside Plaza in 1980 to a medical megacomplex that handles 141,000 patients at facilities in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park and Petaluma, accounting for about 44 percent of the county's privately insured residents. Greg Rosa, a Sebastopol family practice physician, said that Schultz is as responsible as anyone for Kaiser's success in Sonoma County.
Schultz worked in his father's butcher shop as a teenager, as a park ranger while attending Santa Clara University, and as an electrical engineer for Raytheon in Massachusetts before finding his calling. He enrolled in UC Berkeley's public health graduate program in 1970, and then switched to medical school at UC Davis and finished there in 1976. His stint in private practice in Lebanon, Ore., lasted just six months as sawmill shutdowns crushed the local economy, forcing Schultz to close his obstetrics office. A medical school classmate invited him to join Kaiser in Santa Rosa, and Schultz found his place, or, as he said, “You come for a job that turns into a career.”
Schultz is a bachelor half the year, as Priscilla, his wife of 42 years, lives on the 30-acre upstate New York farm from May to October. That's all going to change, as Schultz is leaving Kaiser eight months before hitting mandatory retirement age of 65. He'll be with Priscilla and Butte, his black Labrador “walking buddy,” in the countryside near the Berkshire Mountains when the fall colors—Schultz's favorite sight on Earth—explode in October. Schultz is looking forward to a summer at his farmhouse in upstate New York, walking his dog, peering into the heavens with a telescope and settling down with Sudoku puzzles.

Maynard, Maryland Secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections, approved by Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, as a member of the Maryland Parole Commission. This will require that I close my private law practice in which I have engaged for the past 40 years but the challenge of the new position will allow me to transform my professional career into one of public service."

Ogden, Bud

Bud Ogden ’69 was inducted into the seventh annual West Coast Conference 2015 Hall of Honor class. Ogden was a catalyst for the Santa Clara men's basketball team amidst one of its most successful runs in program history. He proudly represented the Broncos from 1966-1969 and led Santa Clara to two NCAA tournament appearances.  Ogden was named to the WCC All-Conference first team in 1968 and 1969, which followed a second team selection in 1967. Furthermore, Ogden was honored as an All-American selection in 1969 by the Helms Foundation and the USBWA as he led the Broncos to a No. 3 national ranking.

Ogden etched his name in the Santa Clara and WCC record books as one of the all-time greats. His 55 points against Pepperdine in 1967 still ranks tops amongst single game scoring performances at Santa Clara and is the third most all-time in a WCC game. Three other Santa Clara records he holds from that game include most points in a half, most points by a sophomore, and most field goals scored in a single game.  Ogden ranks 14th in Santa Clara history with 1,437 points scored and sits 10th all-time in rebounds with 694. Ogden's scoring average of 18.2 points per game ranks third all-time in Santa Clara history.

Bob Labozetta ’69, MA ’75 writes: "After 33+ years teaching at the secondary and lately the community college level, I have retired my chalk and white board pens, closed my grading software, and boxed my PowerPoint presentations and lessons. The last six years my wife, Susan, and I resided in Oregon, and last summer decided to chuck it all and travel full-time. We sold our home and most of our possessions, bought a motorhome, and now see the USA (but not in a Chevrolet). While Susan continues her art (sculpture), I may put my SCU education to work by writing who-knows-what. Figuring out how to brew beer on the road, fishing across this great land, and viewing historical sites that I discussed in the classroom but never took the opportunity to visit are prominent objectives as well."
