St. Mary’s College of Maryland Foundation, Inc.
Everything we do is in support of St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
Thank you Harry and Pete
for your service and dedication!
Harry has championed St. Mary’s College for decades. Harry served on the College’s Board of Trustees from 1992 to 2005, and beginning in 2006, the Foundation Board of Directors for which he was both President and Treasurer. A savvy, intellectual resource for all things financial, he was instrumental in the College’s Heritage Campaign and the most recent $2.5 Million Capital Campaign Challenge. Harry created the Weitzel Research Award in 2004, an annual award to benefit students who pursue undergraduate summer research in the sciences or the humanities; his investment provides a pathway to experiential and applied learning opportunities for talented and ambitious students. For all of these things, Harry received the College’s prestigious Order of the Ark and Dove in 2017.
Pete has faithfully served on the Foundation Board since 2013, most recently as Secretary. He helped launch the transformative $2.5 Million Capital Campaign Challenge in July 2014 and guide it through its successful completion. Under Pete’s leadership, KBRWyle sponsored the College’s 2016-17 Natural Science and Mathematics Colloquia – a series of interdisciplinary lectures focused on trending topics and new developments and designed for students and the surrounding community. Pete has been a loyal annual donor and a true ambassador for the College.
