It’s fun being around a lot of great people outside the Twin Cities,” says Claeys.Even some coaching advise was traded with the Paynesville high school football coach.”We won’t let him off the pontoon until we find out everything we need to know,” says Max Meagher.”Same with me with the on-side kick secrets, we’re going to find out how to do it successful every time and change Big 10 football,” says Claeys.The event is a fundraiser put on by the Goal Line Club, with help from the Central Lakes Bass Anglers Club.Anglers Club President Ron Mehr says they began planning the tournament last fall.”We wanted to set it up so it was family friendly and not as a competitive tournament,” says Mehr.About 38 boats went out on Lake Koronis looking for that prize winning fish. And it’s didn’t take long until coach Claeys reeled in a one pound bass.”We were worried about getting skunked but we got a couple of them, but we are having a good time,” says Claeys.Claeys says events like this are fun for his entire staff, and they will get back to campus refreshed and ready for the fall. (Photo: Alex Svejkovsky, WJON)last_img read more

Zeidenstein appointed VP for resource development at Rice University

first_imgShare8CONTACT: B.J. Almond PHONE: (713) 348-6770E-MAIL: [email protected] Zeidenstein appointed VP for resource development at Rice UniversityHe will succeed Eric Johnson, who is retiring June 30Darrow Zeidenstein will become Rice University’s new vice president for resource development when current VP Eric Johnson retires June 30. Zeidenstein is now associate vice president for resource development. ”During his eight years at Rice, Eric Johnson led the university’s first nationally based comprehensive fundraising campaign and brought Rice’s development program up to par with those of our peer institutions,” said President David Leebron. Due to Johnson’s strong leadership, the $500 million ”Rice: The Next Century” campaign exceeded its goal by $2.7 million even though the stock market crashed while the campaign was under way, Leebron noted.”While I am sad that Eric has decided to retire at the end of the semester, I am also happy that Darrow Zeidenstein, whom Eric has been mentoring the past three years, has accepted the offer to become the new VP,” Leebron said. ”Darrow represents the future of development, which has evolved into a much more professionally managed discipline.” Zeidenstein said Johnson’s achievements at Rice will make his own transition to the VP position much easier. ”Eric has been extraordinarily generous with his time and knowledge and has positioned the development office to be counted among the best operations in the country,” Zeidenstein said. Since joining the Rice staff in July 2004, Zeidenstein has headed up individual fundraising programs and has overseen the execution of Rice’s current campaign planning.As he prepares for Rice’s next campaign, he is fully aware of the enormous competition among fundraisers. In Houston alone, campaigns totaling about $6 billion are in progress. ”This is a fundamental challenge,” he said. ”It’s not just about competing for the same donors. It’s also a competition to make the Vision for the Second Century more visible so that we have broader community support.”Zeidenstein’s goal is to make sure Rice is among philanthropists’ top three considerations. ”We know that people give to more than one institution,” he said. ”Through communication, we have to show those who are inclined to support higher education what is distinctively excellent and compelling about Rice.”     Before coming to Rice, Zeidenstein was a managing director with the philanthropy consulting firm of Marts & Lundy, where he served both as a campaign consultant and head of the firm’s Digital Solutions practice. Under Zeidenstein’s leadership, the firm provided highly customized services to clients who needed assistance in evaluating or developing high-impact fundraising strategies using analytic methods and digital technologies.Zeidenstein is also a former executive director for strategic planning and marketing strategy at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also served as chief gift planner and head of the university’s central major gifts team. Prior to that position, he was director of planned giving and director of research and systems at the Stern School of Business at New York University.He has a Ph.D. in economic anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.A. in social anthropology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Specializing in the economic development of the Middle East, Zeidenstein is a former Fulbright scholar (Syria) and a Social Sciences Research Council postdoctoral fellow (Morocco). He has also held a fellowship from the National Science Foundation.Zeidenstein is married to attorney Nejd Jill Yaziji. They have a 6-year-old son, Julian.Editor’s note: An image of Zeidenstein can be downloaded at FacebookTwitterPrintEmailAddThislast_img read more
