President’s Notes

by DAVE BLOCKSOM ’68

I want to personally thank all of the volunteers who helped to make our Centennial year celebration a success. Special thanks to Carol Mitchell Lawrence ’84, Rich Eby ’59, and Nichelle Bolden ’84 and their committees who staged the Centennial Gala Weekend events. More than 1,060 alumni and guests attended our Gala Dinner and After Party, 600 attended our Alumni basketball game, 60 participated in the golf outing, and 160 joined the Sunday Brunch and Tour. Proceeds from these events funded the Major McNeil scholarships, the Withrow School of Business, and Withrow’s athletic department. Alumni from every class between 1944 and 2019 participated in the events; for many, this was their first alumni event. The Centennial certainly raised Withrow’s profile in the community!
