Rosemary Jackson, the director of alumni services for Vanguard University, arrived at the school's annual alumni awards luncheon ready to award this year's honoree. No one told her that this year's honoree was herself. Unknown to Jackson, the alumni association board had voted to honor her as the 2001 Alumnus of the Year. They were able to keep it from her through an elaborate "hoax" until the real announcement at last month's luncheon. Rosemary Jackson began her career at Vanguard University on May 21, 1965 as the secretary for the president of what was then Southern California Bible College.

A Vanguard University alumnus, Newport Harbor boys' basketball Coach Larry Hirst remembers his first collegiate game well. It was an exhibition against Athletes in Action, featuring Kevin Heenan, the father of Sailors senior Dennis Heenan. "I still have the box score from it," Hurst said. The tie to Vanguard is there ? and Dennis Heenan just made it stronger. Heenan has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball for Vanguard. He said he also considered Westmont, Biola and Azusa Pacific, but his trip to Vanguard and meeting with Lions Coach Fred Litzenberger won him over.

Steve Virgen Steve Crenshaw never had the benefit of youth soccer, while growing up in the Victorville area, but he still made an effort to learn more about the game. Crenshaw, the Estancia High boys soccer coach, played pick-up soccer games near his neighborhood in Victorville. It wasn't until college he actually competed in organized soccer. That's when his passion for the game took on a new life and, eventually, he would become a coach for the Eagles and lead them to a CIF Southern Section Division IV championship.

Marisa O'Neil Vanguard University saw record enrollment this semester, forcing the school to use a waiting list for the first time in its 84-year history. Enrollment increased 7% this year, with 2,051 students at the school, said Jessica Mireles, associate vice president of enrollment management. Mireles said that part of the success has come from problems associated with budget cuts at other schools. "A lot of it is the market," Mireles said.

John Wilson I had been up Mt. Whitney before, backpacking up and down over three days with my wife, Mary, in 1990, taking time to get acclimated to the altitude, and slogging it out up from the 8,300-foot trailhead to the 14,497-foot summit. But my three companions had never been up, and since Whitney is the highest point in the contiguous 48 states, and just a few hours up the 395 Highway from Costa Mesa, we decided to tackle it in a macho one-day assault.

Steve Virgen Back in high school, before Jeff Gloger transferred to Capistrano Valley and before he became the starting point guard for the UC Irvine men's basketball team, he had a nickname. People called him, "Flea." Six years later, the 6-foot-4 redshirt freshman still lives up to the name he received in his one year at Santa Margarita. "I was just annoying and pestering people on defense," Gloger said. "I guess you could still say that now."
