A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Svetozar Steve Pejovich

While many Americans don’t give their freedom of choice a second thought, Svetozar “Steve” Pejovich has constructed an entire economic philosophy around the concept.

Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, during the reign of the Nazis and raised under the oppression of the post-war Socialist regime, he knew first-hand the privations of not being able to exercise the rights many U.S. citizens take for granted.

.

Pejovich championed his free-market stance at the Texas A&M Department of Economics where he taught for over 25 years.

To honor his distinguished contributions to the field, as well as to inspire and educate generations of Aggies, the College of Liberal Arts and former Pejovich student Sheila Amin Gutiérrez de Piñeres ’88 have established the Professor Svetozar Pejovich Future Leaders Award for Texas A&M University undergraduate economics students.

The award is an endowed fund for the benefit of Aggies taking part in The Heritage Foundation Internship Program. Students selected for the coveted spots will receive scholarships from this award to defray, and hopefully one day cover, the costs of interning in Washington, D.C.

Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, and individual freedom. The internship program attracts young leaders of the highest caliber who are given substantive work, acquire policy expertise, and build marketable skills.

Publishing

Christ - The Alpha and Omega

The Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Western America is pleased to announce the publication of an outstanding book by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, a disciple of the great twentieth-century theologian Archimandrite Justin Popovich. Bishop Athanasius' thought combines adherence to the teachings of the Church Fathers with a vibrant faith and a profound experience of Christ in the Church.

Christ - The Alpha and Omega is the first of a planned collection of works of contemporary Serbian theologians. It is an anthology of Bishop Athanasius' articles which have appeared in Serbian, Greek, French, English and Russian. Focusing on themes central to Christian patristic Triadology, Ecclesiology and Anthropology, the book reveals the ultimate purpose of man and the universe, and speaks of how each of us can realize this purpose within the divine-human community of the Orthodox Church. Bishop Athanasius reminds us that the God-man Jesus Christ is the Beginning and the End of all things, and that we must seek our own end, goal, and fulfillment in Him.
