Kashemeire-Beebwa, Josephine

Josephine Kashemeire-Beebwa, DMJ, who completed the ISW program at the Jesuit School of Theology in 1979, writes: "I now live in Rome as a member of the General Council for our Congregation. Please God I will be here till end of 2015. May God bless you all. I have been on the council since 2005. For the last 5 years I was one of the 3 nonresident councillors. We came to Rome or any other part of Europe (once to California!) for meetings; and we went back to our respective countries of residence. Last year in August we had our General Chapter and I was one of those re-elected. However, this time the chapter voted that the number of councillors be reduced and all must live together with the S.G. That is how I landed here. I have been thrilled to meet up with Barry Burns, FMS [who also completed the ISW in ’79]. We have had a couple of hours together over a meal, catching up with our time and friends at Berkeley. Wishing you all God's blessings."

Duncan, Paul

Paul Duncan ’79 writes that he is "Semiretired and writing a book called High Technology and Complex Decision-Making. Spends time fishing. When Sony was first coming out with a compact disk, I worked on that as a consultant and had the name changed. They wanted to call it WORM (Write Once Read Many Times) and I convinced them that wouldn't go well in the States. I worked on over a thousand projects. I did the strategic two year and five year strategic planning for Kodak and its affiliates. I helped manage and  market the introduction of the first color copier. I okayed the underseas cable in the Atlantic for private networks. From '75 to '79 my girlfriend at the time made me a handmade quilt bedspread and I still use it every night. It's still in great shape. After SCU went to grad school at Berkeley, but you just don't get that SCU community. Personal edict: 'Never abandon your own ship.'" I am the West Coast Director of the Pathological Liars Society.  But then, how can you believe that??
