IN PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
Recognizes with Deep Appreciation
the Extraordinary Achievements of
J. THOMAS MACY '57, T'58
2015 Class Treasurer of the Year
26 or More Years Out
Congratulations, Tom, and thank you for your hard work on behalf of your Class and the Class Treasurers Association. Since 2012, you have been an extraordinary example of what it means to be an outstanding class treasurer and leader.
"Tom's financial experience, ability to manage our class financials, and strong communication with the executive committee have all been essential elements to his success as our class treasurer," says Class President Bruce Bernstein '57. "Tom played an instrumental role in establishing the Class of 1957 Great Issues Fund at the Dickey Center, an endowment fund started as our class legacy gift to Dartmouth."
Jennifer Casey and Dartmouth Alumni Relations also speak very highly of you and your accomplishments: "In serving as the Class of '57 treasurer, Tom has ably demonstrated that each and every officer role contributes to the overall leadership of a class. His financial reports and management of significant gifts to the Dickey Center show him to be a volunteer and loyal son of Dartmouth with skill, vision, and integrity."
Tom, your accomplishments as class treasurer are truly impressive. Last year, you collected $38,100 in dues and "add-on" donations from your classmates representing 58% class participation. The average amount collected was almost double the requested dues amount. Through your efforts, your class was able to contribute $30,000 to the Great Issues Fund last year and has contributed a total of $130,000 to the fund over the past two years. In addition, your class contributed to the Dartmouth Athletic Sponsors Program and Dartmouth Memorial Stadium Project.
A business administration and economics major, you played an active role on campus while at Dartmouth as a member of the Glee Club and the Foley House. You earned your MBA at Tuck and went on to become a partner at Price Waterhouse where you worked for forty years. You are now retired, with three children: John, Paul, and William, and live with your wife, Alice, in Guilford, Connecticut. You have played a very active role as an alumnus in supporting Dartmouth College. Prior to your role as treasurer, you served as necrology chair. In addition to your Dartmouth volunteer efforts, your wife Alice volunteers as the newsletter editor for the Class of 1957. You have also impressively contributed to the Dartmouth College Fund every year since graduation.
In appreciation for all you have done for the Class Treasurers Association and for Dartmouth College as a whole, it is an honor to present you with the award for the 2015 Class Treasurer of the Year.
