@bellarmineU November 30


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Bellarmine University

Location: Louisville KY

This year’s project continues to open my eyes to facts I just did not know about certain colleges. I often know a lot about NCAA Division II institutions but for some reason I never knew that Bellarmine was a Catholic College named after  Saint Robert Bellarmine.

Saint Robert Bellarmine, S.J. was an Italian Jesuit and a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. He was one of the most important figures in the Counter-Reformation.

In the world of higher education Bellarmine is a relatively young campus having been founded in 1950. In 1950, the year of Bellarmine’s inception, the new school became one of the first in the Commonwealth of Kentucky open to all races.

The Bellarmine campus of today stands on property that was a part of a royal land grant from King George III to James McCorkle for his service in the French and Indian War.

When the American Republic was born, the land was retitled by Thomas Jefferson, Governor of Virginia, of which Kentucky was then a part. During the antebellum period, this land was a plantation owned by the Griffin family, who, impoverished by the Civil War, sold the estate to Bishop William George McCloskey for a seminary, Preston Park, which opened in 1871 and lasted, with interruptions, until 1909.
