May 14–16, 2009

The first session consisted of comments by Dean Tom Crady. We next had presentations from representatives of the Undergraduate Student Assembly and the Graduate Student Council, followed by question-and-answer sessions. Next was an athletics update from outgoing Athletic Director Josie Harper and incoming interim Athletic Director Bob Ceplikas ’78. Following Josie’s and Bob’s remarks, a framed certificate of appreciation was presented to Josie by the committee on behalf of the Alumni Council.  We then heard from a panel of students, all members of the Hill Winds Society, on a variety of topics. 

The last 20 minutes of the meeting were devoted to committee business. The committee decided that we should continue the past practice of selecting as vice chairs two first-year committee members, who will become co-chairs in their third year on the council. The committee then elected Axel Grabowsky ’60 and Susan Hess ’81 as co-vice chairs.
