|ARCHBISHOP RAYMOND HUNTHAUSEN (1921-2018)|
A true leading light of Carroll left us this past week with the passing of Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen on Sunday, July 22 at the age of 96. The Archbishop was a treasured and respected member of the Carroll family. While at Carroll, he was a student (class of 1943), professor, coach, athletic director and president who left an enduring legacy on campus and beyond. From the trees he planted, to the Hunthausen Activity Center which he inspired, to the Hunthausen Center for Peace and Justice which carries forth his life’s work to advocate for peace, justice and the overlooked in society, his spirit continues to grace campus. He has inspired generations through his extraordinary example of service to the human family and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, the priests and faithful of the Diocese of Helena and the Archdiocese of Seattle, and all who he influenced throughout his amazing life.Through his broad sphere of work and influence, he touched many lives and much has been shared through various media channels. Below are just a few selections of stories shared by those who knew the Archbishop:

|HALL OF FAME COACH BOB PETRINO SR. (1937-2018)|
Another legendary Carroll forefather left us this week with the passing of Hall of Fame Coach Bob “Putter” Petrino Sr. on Thursday, July 26 at the age of 81.
Petrino served as the head coach of the Fighting Saints for 28 years, beginning in 1971. He guided the Saints to a 163-90-2 record with a .644 winning percentage, winning 17 Frontier Conference Championships and earning bids to the NAIA Playoffs nine times. He tallied four undefeated regular seasons. He was the winningest coach in Carroll history at the time of his retirement. He ranks 24th all-time in wins in NAIA history. Of his 28 seasons at Carroll, he carried winning records in 24 of them. He mentored 17 All-Americans and was named the Frontier Conference Coach of the Year 13 times.
“Coach Petrino meant a lot to Carroll and to the Helena community with his leadership qualities and with his commitment to athletics and football,” Carroll head football coach Mike Van Diest said. “He had a great career in his 28 years here. Our staff is blessed that we are able to follow in his footsteps and build on the foundation that he had built with Carroll football.”
He is a member of five Hall of Fames, including the NAIA National Hall of Fame, the Montana Coaches Hall of Fame, the Butte Athletic Hall of Fame, the Carroll College Hall of Fame and the Helena Sports Hall of Fame. Read more.
Please join us in extending your thoughts and prayers to the Petrino family during this difficult time.
