Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Congrats Dr. Sam!

When I was in college we had a faculty advisor to my Fraternity, Psi Upsilon www.castlealumni.com , Dr. Sam Fager. A medical doctor (former head of student health at the University of Pennsylvania), he was a great friend to all, and was even initiated in the fraternity itself (he went to an inferior college in New Jersey, one without fraternities, so he could not pledge one at Princeton). Penn and Princeton are Ivy League rivals, FYI.

Anyway, Sam was the best man at my wedding, and has stayed involved guiding the undergraduates and even the alumni at times. He is the central point for all info on alumni since so many of us keep in touch with him. In addition to an undergrad degree from Princeton, he has a Masters from Stanford, MD from Hanahman Med School (Philadelphia), Masters in Health Care Admin from Wharton at Penn, and a law degree from Georgetown. He is a pediatrician by training and works in the ER at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and works for the Joint Commission on Hospitals, an accredation agency.

Recently the national fraternity held its yearly convention in Philadelphia and Dr. Sam received the Distinguished Alumni Service Award. Congrats to Dr. Sam!
