ON THE RISE

ANTHONY LOCOCO, KENTUCKY

JOURNALISMHALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

In April, Tony Lococo, M.S. ’85, M.A. ’03, became the first high school

teacher to be selected to the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame.

Lococo just celebrated his 35th year at Trinity High School in Louisville and

31st year as the adviser to ECHO, the student newspaper, and Shamrock,

the student yearbook. In that time, he has helped launch a number of

journalism careers and has guided the publications to several awards.

“I have a hard time wrapping my head around being selected for this

honor,” Lococo said. “It was really gratifying at the induction ceremony to

see how much the journalism professionals remembered and respected

their teachers that had inspired them.”

Lococo received his first master’s degree from IU Southeast in 1985 and another in 2003.

“I loved the campus,” he said. “I loved the teachers there. It’s a wonderful place to learn and a wonderful place to

decide what you want to do and develop your skills.”

DR. DORIS TEGART, INTERIMPRESIDENT OF

BELLARMINE UNIVERSITY

The Bellarmine University board of trustees appointed Dr. Doris Tegart, M.S.

’77, to the position of interim president following the death of President

Joseph J. McGowan on March 1.

She will serve until a new president is selected through a national search,

according to a statement from Bellarmine.

Tegart has worked at Bellarmine for nearly 25 years as executive vice

president, provost, senior vice president for academic affairs, vice

presidencies for special projects and enrollment management, executive

assistant to the president, associate provost, dean, department chair and

professor.

She earned her master’s degree in education from IU Southeast in 1977. She also taught for four years on

campus. She said her time at IU Southeast introduced her to the IU system, which compelled her to pursue her

doctorate in education, women’s studies and administration at IU Bloomington.

“IU Southeast was a pivotal time for me and opened up many options delivered by a group of outside-of-the-box

thinking faculty,”Tegart said.

She notes Dr. John Reisert, former professor of education, as her favorite faculty at IU Southeast.

“He was able to give practical examples and application of the content,” she said.
