When Bob Wantz toured Shepherd College in 1951 as a high school senior, his interest was only in getting a day off from school. Instead, the visit opened his eyes to a world of opportunities and a lifelong commitment to the university. “I loved the school from the first day I was there,” Wantz said. Everything clicked for that visit. Wantz remembers it was a beautiful sunny day and the school choir sang “The White Cliffs of Dover” in front of Reynolds Hall. The tour included 15- to 20-minute visits to different classes and ended with a Rams baseball game.

Alfonso Ruiz isn't sure how his mother did it. As a single mother, she would see her three boys off to school, work as many as three jobs, have dinner on the table, oversee homework and see them off to bed. Then, as they drifted off to sleep, she would hit the books. “She was the little engine that could. She just managed to keep on going,” Ruiz said. Susan Ruiz, 55, of Hagerstown, stayed home with her four children when they were young. But when she divorced in 2000, she needed to find a way to support her family.
