Maydonovitch, John
John Maydonovitch M.S. '73 is one of four recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award, presented by Santa Clara's School of Engineering, for distinguished accomplishments in service to his profession, community, and the University.
 
As chair of the Industry Advisory Board, he has provided outstanding leadership and secured donations to support engineering programs. In 1999, he established two awards to honor the late professor Gerald Markle, founder of the Applied Mathematics Department—one recognizing excellence in teaching, and one supporting student scholarship. As CEO of MCE, a local manufacturing company, he regularly recruits Santa Clara engineering students for internships, providing important mentoring and job experience, while exemplifying the Jesuit model of giving back.

Lyons, Mitch

Mitch Lyons J.D. ’73 writes, "Joanne and I wanted to say how sorry we are that the timing of the reunion conflicts with a preplanned trip to Tuscany for her 65th birthday. What a shame as both of us would have loved to come back and join you all. As I looked at the pictures that flashed on the website's 1973 page, I was struck that my memory is not as bad as I thought and everyone looks great. I could put faces (albeit older) to names, like Dick Cunha J.D. '73, Rick Watters J.D. '73, and Joseph Kalashian J.D. '73 on the opening slide (also loved seeing Dan Martin J.D. '73). Then I looked at the list who make up the committee and would love to see you all. Again, Joanne and I send our love. Quick catch up. Joanne and I are both retired and enjoying our first grandchild, Greta Lee Schalfman. Babysitting Monday and Tuesday and loving it. Joanne is about to become a flower show judge. Like all subsets, this one takes an amazing amount of time, artistry and patience. So does staying married to me for 43 years. She loves the whole process (the flower shows, not necessarily me) and I'm glad she has found something rewarding in retirement. About a year and a half ago, I started the Social-Emotional Learning Alliance for Massachusetts (www.SEL4Mass.org) in order to shift the conversation to a long-term educational plan to reduce violence and addictions in our society. We have over 300 educators on board with 9 working committees. It takes up about 40 hours a week of my time. Using advocacy skills after 26 years as a plaintiff's lawyer. Had fun writing an article for SCU Law Magazine at the opening of the Institute of Sports Law and Ehics. I hope life is good for you all and we wish you all the best, sending our love to all."
