Election of Alumni Council Representative (2018-2021)

For the past three years, our class has been ably represented on the Alumni Council by Jim Staros, whose term will be ending on June 30, 2018.  The time has now come for selection of Jim’s successor to the Alumni Council for a three year term ending June 30, 2021.  For this purpose, our class Executive Committee has designated a nominating committee consisting of our class President (John Mathias), our three Vice-Presidents (Rick Willets, Andy McLane, and Kelly Simpson), and our most recent two Alumni Councilors (Jim Staros and Peter Elias).

And now the Phoenix bro NEWS!

Fall events have reconnected me (and therefore us) with Phoenix brothers LIVE and In PERSON! Yes, it's true. I have actually rubbed old achy shoulders and raised a wavering glass or two with brothers in the flesh, and what a great treat for all of us. Many laughs, memories, and catching up.
