Mathis Calvin III

Mathis Calvin III

Mathis Calvin III has a long history of helping others, starting in high school, when he would swap study hall for the chance to assist in a classroom of students with multiple disabilities. That led to his first job at a summer camp working with children who had special needs—a job ultimately responsible for his interest in becoming a special education teacher.

In 2006, 12 years after enrolling at Warner, Kathryn Colicchio got called to the main office at East High School, where she was working at the time as an administrator. There waiting for her was Brian Brent, Warner’s associate dean for graduate studies. The unannounced visit was an attempt to persuade Colicchio, who had finished her coursework nearly a decade earlier, to finish her dissertation.
