membership for the 2001-2002 board of trustees.
Gerry Gallagher, a 1983 graduate of Saint Martin's College, will
serve a one-year term as the chairman of the board of trustees. Trustee

Corporation to serve on the board after the required one-year's hiatus
between terms. Scott, who is a professor of history and religious
studies at the college, is replacing Brother Edmund Ebbers, O.S.B.
