IN PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
Recognizes with Deep Appreciation
the Extraordinary Achievements of
JO GOLUB '98
2015 President of the Year
25 Years Out and Younger
The Class of 1998 is on the move, with Class President Jo Golub setting the course and navigating the tricky alumni waters of the second decade after graduation. Fortunately for her class, she is an able captain, shepherd, and team leader. Jo, the Class Presidents' Association leadership is proud to recognize you as Class President of the Year for 2015.
Gabi Sarhos '98, class newsletter editor, says, "As class president, Jo came on at a time when we really needed a rallying cry. She's done a remarkable job connecting us again, launching and growing our Facebook presence, and increasing mini-reunion participation to a record for our class. She brings out the best work in our Executive Committee, and she understands the challenges and rewards of leadership."
You were a drama major and magna cum laude graduate, and we know your love of Dartmouth is not just an act, as you are married to an '03 and the daughter of a '51. You have held a number of volunteer rolls over the years and, most notably, were named Newsletter Editor of the Year in 2003.
A busy litigation partner at a renowned San Francisco area law firm, you have always found time for your classmates and College. Class secretary Jeffrey Beyer says, "Jo's efforts for the Class of 1998 definitely go above and beyond what I would think of as typical for a class president. Not only is she extremely helpful in nudging us towards our goals, she is also highly organized and completely enthusiastic. We are all busy people, but somehow she always finds time to check in with other officers to make sure the 'trains are running.' I can't think of anyone who better deserves being honored as Class President of the Year."
Since you began your tenure in 2011, your class has gone from holding one mini-reunion to six, has increased the number of newsletters per year, developed a class project with the SEAD program, and seen a dramatic improvement in your annual self-assessment. You and your team have put all of the infrastructure in place for great class engagement opportunities and are now executing their plans and having a bit of fun in the process.
Jo, the Class Presidents' Association is proud of your great work. We echo the sentiments of your classmates and salute you for your impressive leadership of your class. Congratulations and thank you!
