The Seminary By P. Stefán The Seminary is the story of a fictional school located in the Pacific Northwest founded by a wealthy shipbuilding magnate and his wife Thor and Ingrid Jorgensen. Unable to have children of their own, they desired to provide a place where young people could have an opportunity to receive a high quality education. In their will the Jorgensens gave their fortune as an endowment to the school with the proviso that a certain percentage of each incoming class be provided a free education. Its purpose was to benefit those less fortunate in society. As the stature of the school grew and as admission became more prestigious, the resentment toward these beneficiaries amplified. They became known as “lotties,” a derogatory term likening them to lottery winners. In the beginning it was a noble idea but under the administration of Dr. Reginald Thurgood, the flamboyant sixth president, it took a turn for the worse. Before he became president the school had gone through a series of scandals. Through the sheer dominance of his personality and effective leadership its prestige rebounded and thrived. As with many people who amass unlimited power Dr. Thurgood fell under its spell and a darker side arose. He saw the “lottie” program as a means to satisfy his own sexual appetite. The girls accepted into the program became sex slaves and to keep them submissive, Dr. Thurgood held volatile information that could be used as blackmail against them. When Maria Gonzales was chosen it was for two reasons. First, her Latin beauty was stunning, and second, her parent’s immigration status was questionable. What Dr. Thurgood and his small group of inner confidants were not taking into account was Maria’s strength of character that had been instilled in her by her parents. With the help of her fellow “lottie,” Jack Klein, they took a stand and brought down this corrupt man.
