Simmons, Margaret

Margaret Simmons '69 writes, "I am in Naples, Italy, the most beautiful city in the world, working with Save the Children. I have been teaching teachers as well as about twelve classes of young elementary to middle school kids. I can tell you that 'Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes' is a very big hit with my population! Retirement did not agree with me."

Jim Luke '71 is completing his 18th year of teaching high school chemistry and physics and will retire this coming July 2016. He writes, "Teaching, after college and graduate school, has been both the most rewarding and most difficult job I have had in working a total of 47 full-time years, 29 in private industry. But it is now time to do some of the things I put off: singing, being in plays, traveling, and enjoying just plain fun. Thanks Santa Clara for being the fuse that made this all possible."

Hagan, Rick

Rick Hagan '73, '77 writes, "I retired as director of Housing on August 3, which was also my 35-year employment anniversary at the University of San Diego. Being a time of reflection and counting blessings, I am very appreciative for the opportunity George Giacomini '56 provided when, in 1974, he entrusted me with the responsibility for supervising the residential life program at Santa Clara. Who would ever have dreamed of the amazing career that would result from that opportunity?!! I also want to thank Frank Oliva '74, Mike Radford '74, and Tom House '74, J.D. '77 for the support each of them provided me that led to such a rewarding career of working with college students for 40 years. However, now I am enjoying the flexibility retirement provides and spending more quality time with my wife, Suzanne, who continues to teach 3rd grade, plus our three children Ryan (28), Kelli (26), and Sean (24) who all live nearby in San Diego. I am already enjoying a fast start on my goal to do more traveling, with trips to Julian, Temecula, Anaheim for the D23 Expo, Mammoth, and Hawaii while beginning to plan for the European adventure Suzanne and I will experience together next summer."
