OMAHA, Neb. -- Dubuque native John P. Schlegel has figuratively gone a long way from his days as a member of the Wahlert High School class of 1961 to this coming Thursday, when he will step down as longtime president of Creighton University.

After leaving Dubuque and Wahlert in the early 1960s, Schlegel became a Jesuit, eventually receiving a bachelor of arts in philosophy and classics from St. Louis University, a degree in theology from the University of London and a doctorate in international relations from Oxford University.
