BOOK ON COACH BROWN COMING FALL 2009
Who is the coach that made a difference in your life? For former Regina runner
Matt McCue ‘01, it was Coach Brown. To pay tribute to him and honor his mem-
ory, McCue has written a book about Coach Brown, Regina’s legend of the fall.
An Honorable Run details McCue’s high school years of running for Coach Brown.
He chronicles moments of joy juxtaposed with periods of frustration and despair.
Only after he left Coach Brown to run for the national champion University of Colo-
rado Buffaloes, was McCue truly able to appreciate his mentor’s wisdom.
McCue, now living in New York City, started his publishing career as an intern for
Rolling Stone before moving on to Vanity Fair. He has written for Runner’s World
and Dyestat.com. While An Honorable Run details his unique relationship with
Coach Brown, McCue shares the special traits of Coach Brown’s character that every one of his athletes has experienced—his crush-
ingly tight hugs, his familiar quotes, and his infamous practices starting at dawn.
An Honorable Run will officially launch on Labor Day weekend for $14.99, but Coach Brown’s friends and family have the opportunity
to pre-order it now for $9.99 plus $2.99 for shipping and handling. McCue is slated for a book signing at Running Wild in Coralville on
September 5, 2009, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. McCue will donate a portion of the proceeds from the pre-orders to support research
for a pancreatic cancer cure.
Those who pre-order the book will receive their advance copy during the week of August 24, right before the start of the cross country
season. For your advance copy, please send a check made out to Matt McCue at: 3679 Whitetail Lane, Iowa City, IA 52240. Be sure
to include your home address, email, and telephone number. You are also encouraged to send any special memories of Coach
Brown. They will be added to the book’s website, anhonorablerun.com, over the summer. To contact Matt directly, email him at

Thirty-three Regina students received Catholic Community Foundation tuition assistance scholarships at the Foundation’s second annual scholarship luncheon
on May 15, 2009. On behalf of its benefactors, the Foundation made awards totaling $14,700. Endowed named scholarships are established with a $10,000
gift, with respective annual average gifts of $500 made to recipients.
BECAUSE OF THE GIFTS OF MANY, WHAT THE FOUNDATION WAS
ABLE TO DO FOR REGINA IN SCHOOL YEAR 2008-2009:
• GIFTED OVER $600,000 IN OUTRIGHT CASH GIFTS TO THE SCHOOL, which included $268,000 for teacher salaries; fully
funded the salary and benefits of the president leadership position; provided over $125,000 in tuition assistance for Regina stu-
dents/families in financial need; $100,000 for general needs of Regina’s annual operating budget and provided substantial fund-
ing to many special projects and programs at Regina with gifts restricted by donors to particular program areas.
• FINALIZED A GIFT OF LAND VALUED AT $62,500 FROM A REGINA NEIGHBOR ON ROCHESTER, which when added to
1st Avenue property purchased in early 2008 through a donor gift of $213,000, makes possible the future potential for a 1st
Avenue access into Regina.
• COORDINATED THE PRODUCTION OF REGINA’S PROMOTIONAL/RECRUITMENT VIDEO AS A RESULT OF A $10,000

• PLANNED AND CARRIED OUT ALL 50 OF REGINA’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES.
• BUILT AN ALUMNI KIOSK WHICH HOUSES AN INTERACTIVE COMPUTER WHERE ALL OF REGINA’S ALUMNI FROM

grandchild who are Regina alums and a number of great-grandchildren who currently attend Regina.
