Why did you decide to be a part of the Alumni Association?
I have always had a personal connection to the University because of my involvement in various band ensembles and Kappa Kappa Psi fraternity during my undergraduate years. That relationship continued after graduation as my wife (also a graduate) and I attended many functions at Lock Haven University. By its nature, the band experience fosters a team philosophy and promotes leadership. When I was invited to join the Alumni Association, I felt it was a good fit. It allows me to offer help and to contribute ideas in a broader fashion. I cherish the friendships I’ve gained through the Association.
