In Memoriam The PCPM community suffered a great loss when LeGrand Newman, M.Ed., Associate Dean of Student Affairs, passed away last June at the age of 54. LeGrand received his baccalaureate degree in biology from Elizabeth City State College and a Masters degree in education from Temple University. LeGrand served the College for over twenty years. He was a dedicated and important member of the Student Affairs staff. In addition to being instrumental in minority student recruitment, he directed the STEP program which introduced junior college students to the field of podiatric medicine and the College. LeGrand also coordinated the SARP program for incoming first year students. He was a friend and counselor to all PCPM students and in particular a mentor for minority students. He was also active in many outside organizations such as the National Association of Medical Minority Educators. LeGrand was a trusted colleague and good friend for many years. His warmth and service to PCPM are greatly missed. —M. Lucinda Strycker, D.P.M. Senior Editor of Achilles 1996 Follow your dream- take one step at a time and don't settle for less, just continue to climb. Follow your dream... if you stumble, don't stop and lose sight of your goal, press on to the top... For only on top can we see the whole view, can we see what we've done and what we can do, can we have the vision to seek something new... Press on... and follow your dream. -Amanda Bradlev 5John F. D'Aprix President Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine JOHN F. D’APRIX rataocM To I he Class of 1996: You have negotiated successfully to its completion, the first leg of your professional journey by completing an unrelentingly challenging course of study experienced by only an exceedingly small percentage of our society. For this, you have my heartfelt congratulations. You also have my respect for having been so strongly motivated that you perserved in the presence of not only a daunting curriculum, but an anxiety-engendering environment of change. Yours Is the first class to feel the full impact of major sea changes in the healthcare sector which undoubtedly will alter irrevocably the course of podiatry as a profession. As it is unlikely that these seas soon will be calm, it is important for you to rely upon the anchor of your own skills and knowledge to secure your competitive position and to seek safe harbor with others in the profession. Finally, you have my best wishes for a healthy and prosperous future life in which the memory of this small College and your brief passage through it will be increasingly appreciated.

I will go And they turn as one and head for the plain No need for the whip oh no need for the rein Now the clasp of this union who fastens it tight Who snaps it asunder the very next night Some sav it’s him some say it's her Some say love's like smoke beyond all repair So my darlin' my darlin' just let it go by That old silhouette on the great western sky And I'll pick out a tune and they'll move right along And they're gone like smoke and they're gone like this song Say a prayer for the cowgirl Class of 19% • 61Suk I.

Biology There was a woman who made it a habit of taking her morning stroll along the seashore. As she walked along, she would stop to pick up the small starfish that had been stranded ashore by the tide and toss them back into the water. This action slowed her pace a bit, but she didn't seem to mind. One morning another walker stopped her and asked: "I’ve noticed you picking up the starfish. Why do you do that?' The woman replied: "When the starfish are washed ashore, they can't get back into the water. If you don't throw them back, they will die." The inquirer continued: "But thousands of starfish are stranded ashore everyday. You can't begin to save them all. You are just wasting your time." "1 know that in the bie scheme of things it doesn't make much difference," the woman replied, as she stopped to pick up a small starfish and gently tossed it into the waves. "But it sure Makes a big difference to this one little starfish." Mom Dad: When I was little, you tickled mv feet, put me to bed in feet pajamas, and read me Dr. Seuss' 'The Foot Book."

Trinity College B.A. Biology As I close a very important chapter in my life there are a few people I must thank. Primarily, I must thank the Lord jesus Christ for being the wind underneath my wings enabling me to soar above all the pain and obstacles that were in my life these past few years. Secondly I thank you Lord for my family; parents who have been my constant source of support; a little sister who has taught me to put more life in my life; a brother who has taught me to simply relax and take life as it comes. Little brother I will always love and miss you. Finally I must thank my friends at PCPM for making these years a truly enlightening experience. In closing 1 must say that I have grown tremendously as a woman, and most importantly simply as a person. I have come to know my strengths and weaknesses. Lord I can only pray that with your help that I may turn those weaknesses into strengths. Class of 19% • 85David P. Lambarski, D.P.M. Rutgers University B.S.

Attitude, to me is more important titan the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures than successes, than what other people think or say or do. it is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill It will nuke a company, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for mat day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude... I am com inced that life is 10? what happens to me and %'■ how I react to it. And so it is with you... We are in charge of our attitude.” ■ 1996University of Maryland B.A. Social Science Stephen F. Levin, D.P.M.

Blit make allowance for their doubting, too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting. Or being lied about, don't deal in lies. Or being hated, don't give way to hating. And yet don't look too good not talk too wise; If you can dream and not make dreams vour master. If you can think, and not make thoughts your aim, if you can meet With triumph and disaster. And treat those two imposters just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools. Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken. And stoop and build'em up with worn - out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings. And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss. And lose, and start again at vour beginnings. And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve anti sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in vou Except the will which says to them: ' Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue. Of walk with kings -- nor lose the common touch. If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you. If all men count with you, but none too much; If vou can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run. Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it.

Best of Luck! 10S • Class of 1996Ashley K. Reeve, D.RM Union College B.S. Biology Desiderata Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, eve the dull and ignorant; they too have their story Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit If you compare yourself with other, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in you own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass... You ore a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right tri be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

The agreement outlines the process for gradual withdrawal of the Israeli troops and transfer of governing authority for Palestinian self-rule in 30 percent of the west bank. It also allows for Palestinian elections and the release of 5,000 Palestinian prisoners being held. Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated by a Jewish extremist in Israel on Nov. 4,995. Million Man March: On Octobr 16, 1995 in the fourth-largest demonstration in Washington history, African-American men converged on the nation's capital in response to the call from Louis Farrakhan to rally for unity and brotherhood. The first US Apache and Blackhawk helicopters roared into Bosnia on December 24,1995. A tangible sign of a NATO mission commanders said was on target and taking control of front-line positions. French troops seized front-line checkpoints north of the city, and took over part of a large resort in Serb-held Ilidza west of Sarajevo that is to become a NATO headquarters. They also reached agreement with the Serbs and the Muslim-led government on an initial pullback from front-line postions around the Bosnian capital.

Before it was through the storm had killed at least 20 people in four states and caused 1.8 billion in damages: the third-costliest storm in US history. Opal caused the sea to rise 15 feet which destroyed homes and businesses along a 120-mile stretch of the Florida Panhandle. Opal followed close on the heels of Hurricane Erin 2 months earlier. On April 19, 1995 a car bomb exploded in Oklahoma City destroying the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building and killing scores of men, women and young children. Shortly after the explosion, Timothy McVeigh, a Gulf War veteran was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. Two days later, he was recognized as one of the bombing suspects and was charged. On October 3, 1995 the long-running real-life soap opera played its final episode. In "the trial of the century", OJ Simpson was acquitted in the June 12,1994 stabbing murder of his fomer wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. A white Ford Bronco leading a police chase, Simpson trying on the "the murder gloves" in court, and the testimony of persecution witness police detective Mark Fuhrman are lasting images. The Year in Review • 133HEADLINE SPORTS Above photo: In Super Bowl XXX, despite playing nowhere near their best, the Dallas Cowboys won their third Super Bowl in four seasons on Jan. 18,1996 beating Pittsburgh 27-17. No team has gotten that many Super Bowl titles in such a short span. Center photo: On Dec. 9,1995 Germany's Steffi Graf emerged as 1 as she beat Monica Seles in New York to win her 4th US Open title. For Graf, it was the third consecutive Grand Slam title, coming after victories at Wimbledon and at the French Open. "Nothing can ever come close to this one. I had a lot of obstacles to climb over," said Graf, who played with a bone bruise on one foot. In spite of her defeat on the court, Monica Seles was a victor of sorts. This loss was the first in a dozen matches that marked her inspired return to the sport after a 2 year absence. Left photo: For months, baseball fans were talking about The Streak. With each game he played, Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. drew one game closer to breaking one of baseball's "unbreakable" records. In 1995, Ripken not only equaled 2,130 consecutive games, he surpassed it! Right photo: The Cleveland Indians and the Atlanta Braves squared off in the first World Series in 2 years.

Dr. John Fenice It began in September of nineteen ninety-two John and Ang moved to Phillv; his dream to pursue A lifelong ambition, a podiatrist-to-be. To earn the coveted title, doctor of podiatry. John studied hard; the hours were long yet he didn't seem to put a foot wrong. In clinic he easily withstood the heat while working on patient's aching feet. Congratulations, John, of you we are proud and Angie deserves some applause, long and loud! As a family we offer a special gift to you seven bunions, to corns and a hammertoe, too! We love you!!! Artie, Jennie, Marie, Van, Emma, Julie, Paul, Erin, Cheryl, Henry, Paulie and T.J.CONGRATULATIONS!!! JOHN FENIGE D.P.M. This is a story of four years in Philly, that turned out to be quite a dilly. We think it will be four, let's hope it's not more, to commute from New York would be silly. The day we arrived I knew, John had to find something to do. He was hired on the spot, at a place called "The Trot," PCPM beckoned and John said ado. Here's where life as we knew it did end, I said goodbye to my husband and friend. I learned how to shop, while John was at CHOP, all night keeping infants on the mend. Your years of studying have been long and hard, just take a look at your report card. We'll just have to wait and see, about that residency. Cross your fingers and hope its near Barnard. So here's to the class of '96, and to those whose feet they will fix. We raise our toes in salute, may the bunions bring you loot, so much so you'll do Clip Chip's just for kicks! I knew you could do it! ___________________________________Love always, Angie Dr. John V. Fenice Way to go Baby John, Finally it's about time! You started with an MBA in New York City And finished with a DPM by way of Philly. You'll treat some toes, maybe even earn some dough. And whether you work in NYC or Philly, Angie can become a PA in either city! Congratulations to you and Angie! All the best of health, happiness and PROSPERITY!! All our love.

When you were young and just a kid, was it really that long ago? riding dirt bikes was all that mattered, was it something you'd ever outgrow?
