On June 10, a farewell gala was held to pay tribute to the vi- sion and leadership of President Emeritus Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., and to mark his retirement. Friend and former SU Trustee Timothy F. Maloney, Esq., performed as master of ceremonies and shared many anecdotes. We were also proud to be joined by the Rev. John W. Swope, former President of Cristo Rey Je- suit High School in Baltimore, who gave the blessing; and by Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, Ph.D., President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, who delivered the keynote ad- dress. To honor Manning’s legacy, proceeds from the event will sup- port the Kevin J. and Sara G. Manning Scholarship fund, which benefits students who are the first in their family to attend col- lege. Manning Scholars are selected as incoming freshmen and continue to receive the award until they graduate. The schol- arship has already aided one deserving student in achieving a Stevenson University degree. 16 | VENTURES/SUMMER 2017 Flourishing Traditions Green & White Sponsors • Alpha Landscape Contractors/Matis Warfield • The Archdiocese of Baltimore • Baltimore Business Journal • Bank of America • Sandra and Malcom Berman • Brotman Financial Group, Inc. • Brown Advisory • Bunting Family Foundation • Cigna • The Daily Record • Mr. and Mrs. Samuel M.
