Inaugural Showcase Banquet draws large crowd
Close to 200 people came to the Newman University campus Nov. 21, 2013 for the first-ever Newman Showcase Banquet. The banquet, which honored high-achieving high school
senior students accepted by Newman, was sponsored by the National Alumni Board to give students and their parents a look at what the university has to offer.
More than 20 young alums in the Wichita area acted as table hosts for the event, which included a welcome by President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D., and comments about the university by Newman students, alumni and faculty. The evening concluded with the theatre production “Into the Woods” for those able to attend. The event was hosted by Director of Alumni Relations Sarah (Kriwiel) Cundiff ’86, ’90 and Assistant Professor of Chemistry and National Alumni Board Member Ryan Huschka, Ph.D. ‘07.
