Michelle E. Stevens ‘91

Earns Top Rankings As A Fund Manager

Michelle E. Stevens says “it felt great, but was kind of surprising” when she was named the No. 2 fund manager out of 8,000 by Forbes Magazine last fall. Perhaps she should not have been so surprised; after all, one of the mutual funds she had been managing at Transamerica Investment Management LLC had been ranked No. 7 out of 100 by Barron’s earlier in the year.

Cindy Wetzel Lentol ’90

Finds Success On The Big Screen

For Cindy Lentol, the opportunity to work alongside such stars as Matthew McConaughey and Tommy Lee Jones probably never entered her mind while at Wittenberg. Although interested in acting, Lentol never pursued the field during her college days, preferring instead to play field hockey, work in the sociology department and immerse herself in college life.

Kay Carl ’59 thought it was a story worth telling, and she would know. For 30 years, Carl worked in the Clark County School District in Nevada and presided over its phenomenal growth.

Distinguished Teacher

The phrase “kid at heart” may describe Matthew J. Smith, but it’s what he does in the classroom that truly defines him. Since joining the faculty in 2001, he has turned his own childhood interests into powerful teaching tools that help demystify media messages.
