(Community Matters) Brett was an undergraduate who I met in 2004 while teaching at UT’s McCombs School of Business. At his request I became the faculty advisor for his Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity. We’ve been close ever since – during which time he graduated from UT, enlisted in the US Marines, deployed to Japan, returned, met Maria Redford in Dallas, and then answered a special call for reenlistment in a stealth, one year deployment. Maria, with a masters in religious studies, is chaplain at Dallas’ Ursuline Academy. Faith (specifically Roman Catholicism) is very important to both friends. Not sure I’ve ever attended a wedding officiated by five priests (each important in their livers) and attended by at least several others. What a wonderful launch for the life of two wonderful young friends.
