What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
M c C a l l u m r e t u r n s t o C a r r o l l by Mike Stratman Staff Writer Rev. Dougald McCallum want ed to design race boats and build muscle cars, but life threw him a curve ball. After he graduated from high school McCallum worked in the fiberglass industry. He had aspirations of starting his own business, McCallum said. “I’d rather start a business because my family is full of entre preneurs,” he said. He wanted to be like the others in his family who had businesses. McCallum’s parents and brother had their own trucking companies, he explained. One would never suspect this priest comes from a family who owned their own trucking compa ny, Town and Country Transfer. After working in the fiberglass industry his brother offered him a job driving trucks, McCallum said. After three years working for his brother, he was offered a job in New Brighton, Minn, working steel. He admits that during his grade school and high school years he was below the average on compre hension tests. He was placed below beginning level classes. Teachers encouraged him to take business classes instead of lan guage classes. “I always had a deep spirituality, a desire/hunger to be in relation with God, to know my creator,” he explained. At this point he decided to break off an engagement and attend the pre-seminary pro gram at Carroll College. However, he began a major in classical lan guages, his weak est area of study. He mastered Latin and Greek from the classical language program. He was then asked by the bishop if he would consider the seminary, recalled McCallum. The bishop sent him to Rome to study at the Gregorian University because of his back ground in Greek and Latin. Just to enter the Gregorian University, he needed to know Italian, he explained. McCallum had much support from his friends he made from Carroll. Colleen Dunne,Associate Director of Campus Ministry, has known Rev. McCallum for 14 years. She first met him when she was a freshman at Carroll and he was a junior. They had sung together in the campus liturgical choir. One class she had attended with him was a class called perspectives in natural science. It was a class for those who were not scien tifically inclined, Dunne explained. “He always worked hard, he always knew how to make a balance,” Dunne said. He was seri ous about his role as priest and teacher, but outside those roles he had a good sense of humor, Dunne said. He is committed to what he does and enjoys life, and is a friend that you can always count on, she said. Another good friend of McCallum, Patrick Harris, director of student activities has known him for 18 years. Harris had attended the pre-seminary program with McCallum at Carroll. While they attended school together, they decided to take a week to enjoy life and visit the Grand Canyon, Harris said. They had decided to take McCallum’s vehicle. However, when they were in the middle of nowhere the engine blew-up. A guy who stopped to help them said he could fix the vehicle if they were willing to tear down an old bam for him, Harris explained. So, they had fun the rest of the day tearing down the bam, said Harris. “He has to fill the role of a priest, which he does very well...he’s got a very professional attitude with his work he does, and at the same time what I like about him is he’s just kinda like one of the guys,” Harris explained. McCallum enjoys being around people who don’t pressure him about his role as a priest, Harris said. He studied in Rome for seven years before being ordained in 1997. He spent four years as a parish priest prior to teaching at Carroll. Since then he has become fluent in French and Spanish. McCallum is even in the process of obtaining his doctorate degree. “One of the most helpful classes that I took when I was here was formal logic... teaches you how to stmcture sentences and logically develop sentences,” McCallum explained.
