Helping youth gain valuable lessons

Help a child, change the world, the adage goes. But how many of us truly make that concept a reality on a significant scale? Three UB School of Management alumni have, impacting the lives of hundreds, likely thousands, of young people. These alumni are making their mark in different ways and in different places.

“Camp Paintrock is the perfect place for students to realize new life lessons and begin to ‘paint/create’ a future pathway to success.” John Alm,
President, The Paintrock Canyon Program
UB alumnus

John Alm ’73, a retired Coca-Cola executive, wanted to help underprivileged youth experience the joys of summer camp. He and his wife, Carolyn, bought a 7,000-acre cattle ranch at the base of Paintrock Canyon in Wyoming and developed a camp where post-eighth graders gain a new appreciation of life, the environment, and the realization of new horizons.

William Steul ’64, ’68, retired financial executive, is co-chair of the Trinity Excellence in Education Program (TEEP), a free, out-of-school-time program for Boston middle and high school students, nearly all of whom need academic support and live in neighborhoods with higher-than-average level of violence and poverty.

Thomas McCausland ’72, retired executive with Siemens Medical Solutions USA, who is now chairman of the corporation’s foundation, which provides more than $7 million annually in support of educational initiatives in science, technology, engineering, and math.

After graduating from the School of Management, Alm, Steul, and McCausland went on to different careers in different cities, but ultimately, they took different paths to the same destination—changing the world, one child at a time.
