Athletic Hall of Fame

Established in 1971 by the National Alumni Association, the Mount St. Mary's Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes annually former athletes who "have exhibited athletic prowess of an outstanding nature in an intercollegiate sport." The late Monsignor John L. Sheridan, former president and star athlete on basketball and football teams, has the distinction of being the first person elected to membership in the Hall of Fame.  Since that auspicious beginning, the Hall of Fame has inducted other former basketball and football standouts, as well as representatives from the baseball, cross country, boxing, soccer, track, tennis, lacrosse, decathlon, field hockey, softball and golf teams. The inductees also include one other former president, the late Dr. John J. Dillon, Jr., and several coaches and individuals who have made significant contributions to the athletic program. Three teams have been enshrined, notably the 1962 NCAA College Division Basketball Champions.

2019 - William P. Beierschmitt, Ph.D., C’80

School of Natural Science and Mathematics – Kraig E. Sheetz, Ph.D., Dean

Dr. William Beierschmitt, C’80, received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Mount St. Mary’s University in 1980, and his doctorate in toxicology from the University of Maryland in 1986. After completing three years of post-doctoral training at the University of Connecticut Toxicology Program, he joined Pfizer’s Drug Safety Research and Development group in Groton, Connecticut, beginning a 30-year career as a toxicologist in the pharmaceutical industry until his recent retirement in August, 2018. Subsequently, Bill became a founding partner and expert toxicologist with D & B ChemTox, a consulting firm specializing in the risk assessment of chemical impurities in pharmaceutical products, a position he currently holds.

During his 30-year career at Pfizer, Bill held a number of scientific positions of increasing responsibility and scope in both early- and late-stage drug development. Bill was the preclinical toxicology author for more than 20 Investigational New Drug Applications (INDs) to support the initial clinical testing of potential therapeutic candidates, and a contributor to three successful New Drug Applications (NDAs) to support the marketing of a new pharmaceutical product. He was a member of several external scientific consortia that developed recommendations and guidance documents pertaining to the use of novel excipients in pharmaceutical formulations, and the safety of various impurities in pharmaceutical products including metals, solvents, and those that leach into parenteral products from packaging.

Recognized for his expertise in impurities in pharmaceutical formulations, Bill founded Global Risk Assessment Services in 2006, a group composed primarily of toxicologists who provide chemical risk assessment support for impurity-related matters for Pfizer’s Research and Development operations, and all their manufacturing sites worldwide. Thus, given this scope of operations, the Global Risk Assessment Services group helped to support the safety and quality of Pfizer’s entire research and marketed pharmaceutical portfolio.

Bill is a Diplomat of the American Board of Toxicology, and a Fellow of the Academy of Toxicological Sciences. He is a member of a number of professional scientific organizations, including the Society of Toxicology and the American College of Toxicology, where he has held a number of elected positions during his years of affiliation with them. He has written several book chapters, as well as published a number of articles in peer reviewed journals, one of which was selected by the Society of Toxicology for its annual best publication award, a manuscript dealing with mechanisms of acetaminophen (Tylenol) hepatotoxicity.

Since 2010, Bill has been a member of the Board of Advisors for the School of Natural Science and Mathematics at Mount St. Mary’s University. In this capacity, he has been particularly supportive of the summer research internship program, believing such experiences form the very foundation for a student to more fully develop their potential as an independent scientist. Bill and his wife Michelle are supporters of a number of local and national charities, believing strongly in the concept of giving back. Bill, Michelle and their family reside in and around Waterford, Connecticut.

For 12 years, he served as a member and chair of the Board of Trustees at Mount St. Mary’s University as well as on numerous committees of the Mount’s board, for both the university and seminary.

Dan is the recipient of an honorary doctorate degree from Mount St. Mary’s University and Seminary, and two Papal Awards for service to the Catholic Church and Catholic education. In addition to earning a Mount degree in 1964, he earned a master’s degree in educational administration from George Mason University (1976). He was always eager to learn more about American history and in particular, American Catholic history and its influence on American society throughout the years earning a Master of Arts degree in American history from the University of Notre Dame (1983).

He is grateful for the loving support of his wonderful sister, Joanie Candee, whose late husband, Harry Candee, was a member of the Mount Class of 1963. Dan is forever in debt to the Mount for accepting him as a student and forming him as a Catholic man with great confidence to serve others through the ministry of Catholic education.

Dan’s favorite Mont memories are the happy years spent as a Mount student and alum, and his association with outstanding priests and faculty members who instilled in him and others, the true meaning of being a Catholic gentleman, in caring service to others. He is truly humbled by this recognition from a place he dearly loves and serves.

2019 - Rev. John J. Dietrich, S’92

Seminary – Msgr. Andrew R. Baker, S.T.D., Vice President and Seminary Rector

Rev. John Dietrich, S’92, graduated from the University of St. Thomas/St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston, Texas in 1988, with a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy. He attended Mount St. Mary’s Seminary from 1988 to 1992 and was ordained on April 24, 1993, for the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut.

In 2005, Dietrich received a master’s degree in Christian spirituality from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska. In 2006, he received his certification for spiritual direction and directed retreats.

From May 1993 to January 1995, Dietrich was parochial vicar at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Naugatuck, Connecticut. He served as director of vocations for the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut, from January 1996 to August 2001.

For the next six months, he served as the assistant spiritual director at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary. In 2002, he became the director of spiritual formation at the Mount. He was extremely popular among the seminarians as a spiritual director. He never said “no” to a seminarian even if it meant many long hours meeting with them. He heard confessions every day in IC chapel starting at 6:30 a.m. and regularly assisted both lay people and priests from outside the Mount in their spiritual growth. He gave spiritual conferences every other week, taught several sacramental practica courses, and provided an elective on Christian spirituality. He is known by an entire generation of seminarians as their spiritual father. Dietrich returned to the Archdiocese of Hartford in 2018 and is currently the pastor at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Forestville, Connecticut.

Dietrich spent a summer in Guatemala for a Spanish immersion program and regularly celebrated Mass in Spanish here at the seminary and in local parishes. He is also a faithful donor to the Seminary’s Annual Fund and was very generous of his time, talent, and treasure to Mount St. Mary’s Seminary.

Dan is extremely knowledgeable about tech, globalism, AI, big data, its use and misuse, and the need for ethical decision making in our high tech world. He speaks eloquently about his life’s journey and how much the Catholic liberal arts education he received at the Mount, and specific people at the Mount contributed to and supported that journey.
