    In Hoc Signo Awards Presented

The General Alumni Association presented the annual In Hoc Signo Awards at the College’s reunion banquet this past June. This year’s recipients were Charles J. Buchta ’63, Charles E.F. Millard ’54 and Stanley A. Slowick ’74.

Charles J. Buchta ’63
A devoted leader on behalf of Alma Mater, Charles J. Buchta has long displayed his dedication to his College.

His service to Holy Cross has been ongoing and far-ranging. A class agent and member of the Varsity Club, he has been a career planning counselor, an admissions advisor and a class chair. A lifetime distinguished member of the President’s Council, he is also a member of the 1843 Society and the Holy Cross Leadership Council of New York. An alumni board director, Buchta has served on the Bishop Healy and Summer Fellowship committees. A correspondent for the Class of 1963, he was the winner of the Perotta Award in 1983 and the Cavanaugh Award in 1988. He also has served as the treasurer of the Class of 1963 Foundation, assisting classmates and widows in need.

Following a 30-year career as a senior executive in the banking industry, Buchta founded an independent management consulting firm, offering his expertise to financial and manufacturing companies, as well as non-profit institutions.

Buchta and his wife, Marjorie, are the parents of three children, including Suzanne ’95. They reside in New London, N.C.

Charles E.F. Millard ’54
A tireless ambassador for Alma Mater, Charles E.F. Millard has served Holy Cross with verve and honor for decades.

A member of the executive committee of the Holy Cross Board of Trustees for 17 years, Millard was chairman of the Board from 1977 through 1982. Whether sponsoring the Will Jenks Chair or serving as a member of two presidential search committees, his savvy and leadership have brought vision to Mount Saint James. As chair of the Campaign for Holy Cross, he helped to raise over 75 million dollars for the College. The recipient of an honorary degree in 1999, Millard is a member of the 1843 Society, a career planning counselor and a lifetime benefactor of the President’s Council.

After 10 years in the advertising business, during which he became the youngest vice president in the history of the Benton & Bowels Agency, Millard joined the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of New York in 1967. Serving as president, chief executive officer and chairman of the company, Millard expanded sales from $60 million to over $500 million. A member of the board of governors of the National Soft Drink Association, he has also served as chairman of the board of Lance, Inc. and director of First Fidelity Bank of New Jersey and the Connecticut Bank & Trust Company.

Millard and his wife, Marylou, are the parents of eight children, all of whom are graduates of Holy Cross. They reside in Hobe Sound, Fla., and Fenwick, Conn.

Stanley A. Slowick ’74
Energetic, dedicated and resourceful, Stanley A. Slowick has never missed an opportunity to serve his College with pride and passion.

One look at the number of committees on which he has served, and the numerous positions that he has held, makes manifest Slowick’s devotion to Holy Cross. A president, vice president and director of the General Alumni Association, he has been a member of the GAA’s executive committee as well as the strategic planning committee, the nominations and elections committee and the book prize committee. In addition to serving as the co-director of the regional clubs committee, Slowick has brought his leadership and expertise to the budget and finance committee. A member of the President’s Council, he has served as president of the Rhode Island Club of Holy Cross.

Slowick is the senior vice president at the Sargent Rehabilitation Center and a resident of Warwick, R.I.
