Johns Hopkins Alumni Council: The First Ten Years

The 150-member Alumni Council is founded to represent all divisions and geographical areas and to enhance services to the University, its alumni, and students. One student from each division also sits on the Council. Today, the Alumni Council represents 94,000 alumni.

Divisional alumni office is created for Homewood Schools (Arts and Sciences and Engineering).

Baltimore Alumni Chapter is established. Today, the chapter sponsors more than 30 events a year. Outside of Baltimore, more than 100 events are planned each year in 42 regional chapters, including four chapters abroad.

Woodrow Wilson Award for distinguished government service is established, joining the Distinguished Alumnus Award and Heritage Award as honors for alumni and friends.

Host Family Program is created to give entering students a family tie away from home.

Thanks to the Host Family Program, begun in 1991, students like Andrew Schmidt of Ohio can ease into freshman year with a "home away from home"--in this case, the friendship of 1973 grad Robert Scholz and his wife, Rebecca.

Excellence in Teaching awards are established for all divisions.

Alumni Council president becomes ex officio member of the Board of Trustees.

Alumn Council Pair Share Special Bond

Dreams are coming true for Charles Johnson-Bey, Engr '89. He has spent four years in the corporate world--at Motorola and Corning--working on image compression and next-generation optical communication networks. In August, he moved back to his hometown of Baltimore to teach electrical engineering at Morgan State University. Charles and his wife, Lena--literally the girl next door--have two fine young sons. And at Hopkins, where he feels "a stake in its future," he was elected to the Alumni Council last fall.

"Teaching is a lifelong dream," explains Dr. Johnson-Bey, who received his Ph.D. at the University of Delaware. The happiness in his voice is unmistakable. "I feel blessed."

One of his early dreams materialized in the fall of 1986 when he entered Johns Hopkins with a scholarship endowed by computer engineer Charles Einolf, Engr '56, of Atlanta. Charles Johnson-Bey played football (tying Hopkins' single-season solo sack record at nine) and also excelled at his studies, graduating in three years. "It was a wonderful experience, which is why I am so tied to Hopkins," he says.

"The scholarship was extremely important," he continues. "After graduation from Poly [the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute] I worked for two years as a chemical technician for another Poly grad and took evening classes at Hopkins. Some of the older folks in my classes advised me to sell my car, quit my job, and go to school full time. I didn't think I could afford it, and then the scholarship came along."

The two Charleses first met, to their mutual delight, during 1997's Leadership Weekend at Hopkins. Now they are serving together on the Alumni Council, of which Mr. Einolf has been a member for three years. The latter calls himself a "senior member" of the Council, where he serves on the Nominating Committee, the Awards Committee, and the Ad- Hoc Committee for Technology. He says the Alumni Council is a "great experience" and that he is enjoying "learning a lot about Hopkins and about people."

Charles Einolf also grew up in Baltimore, and after World War II earned his bachelor's degree while raising a family and working at IBM. His career took him to Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to England, and ultimately to Atlanta, where he was an adjunct lecturer at the Georgia Institute of Technology on the IBM Faculty Loan Program. He retired from IBM in 1984, having twice received the Outstanding Corporate Award.

"When my father died in 1982 he left me some money, and our children had finished school," Mr. Einolf relates. "I felt I owed Hopkins an awful lot. So my wife, Dorothy, and I decided to set up a scholarship fund in the name of my father and stepmother."

Over the years, 14 students have held Einolf scholarships, and the Einolfs have enjoying meeting them whenever possible. In one of them--Charles Johnson-Bey--Mr. Einolf has a new Alumni Council colleague whose dreams he has helped make come true.
