Welcome alumni and board members
Dear Fellow Newman Alumni,
I am honored and privileged to serve as your Newman University Alumni Association president for 2012-2013. I offer a special welcome to members of the Class of 2012, and to students entering Newman for their first year. I look forward to working with board members and the director of Alumni Relations to help Newman further its mission of empowering graduates to transform society.
Please join me in welcoming our newest Alumni Association board members: Larry Crow Jr. ’06; Patrick Edwards ’07; Jesse Gray ’12 (Young Alumni Representative); Ryan Huschka ’07 (Faculty Representative); Luke Knoblauch ’06; Niki (Lee) Manbeck ’09; Leona (Darveau) O’Reilly ’64, and Logan Winter ’13 (Student Representative). Also, now serving on the Executive Committee are Tad Druart ’87 as vice president, and Mike Ludlow ’08 as secretary.
We are proud of our alma mater and through our involvement, we hope to attract more alumni volunteers and professionals to return to campus and help us build stronger, deeper, more meaningful relationships with a wider base of our alumni.
Please be our guests and join us at one of the many outstanding events held on campus each year: The Party on the Plaza-Oktoberfest in September, The Fall Sports Reunion in October, The Athletics Hall of Fame and the Cardinal Newman Banquets in February, and The Last Call Party for seniors in May. We also invite you to cheer on our Jet student-athletes as they compete in a multitude of sports.
The association embraces your continued support, your selfless commitment to volunteerism, your enthusiastic participation and your generous financial commitment to make a difference. I encourage each of you to stay connected and give back to the institution that has provided us with so many life and career options. You are the stakeholders of this fine university.
It is indeed my pleasure to serve as your president. The coming year promises to be an exciting time, with many outstanding activities and events.
I hope to see you around campus and in the community at large.
