Alumni Basketball Game This Saturday

I hope you’ll join us this Saturday, January 21, 2006 for the annual alumni basketball game.  Tipoff time is 1:00 PM. Come back to campus and enjoy watching the legends hoop it up.

At 3:00 PM, Coach Mac Petty’s Little Giants will take on Kenyon in a North Coast Athletic Conference match-up.

See you at Chadwick Court!

SCC Chili Supper Draws Crowd

The Schroeder Center for Career Development team – Scott Crawford, Stephanie Hopkins, Ben Hewitt, Jill Rogers, and Toni McKinney – hosted a welcome back chili dinner last night (January 15th).  As you can see, a lot of our young men turned out for chili, cornbread, and the works.

Good things are happening at the SCC – on your next visit to campus I highly recommend you stop by and talk with Scott, Stephanie, and the rest of their team.  You’ll be impressed.   




Written Comps Over – Seniors Rejoice!

Saw several seniors yesterday…all ready to tell me that their written comps were over.  I thought they were all talking about coming by the Alumni office because all I heard is "See you at Tommy’s!"

    a.  A bark worse than the bite?
    b.  A once-in-a-lifetime-experience?
    c.  Your worst nightmare?  
    d.  A rite of passage just like Chapel Sing?
    e.  All of the above.  

 I know what my answer would be – what’s yours?

David Scott '64 – World Traveler

David Scott ’64 (Lower right) sent this photo of his recent travels to Chardigarh (Punjab) India.  David was in India for several different purposes, all dealing with his efforts to expand his digital publishing company, Polyglot Press.

David had enough time to take some pictures of the scenery so it wasn’t all work and no play.  

Check out the black monitor in the background with the "sticky notes" attached.  Truly a small world! 

Andy Ford H'03 – Some Little Giant

I read the bios of the three candidates coming to campus to interview for the presidency. I guess that means that Anne and Andy really are going to step back from the forefront here.

To every alumnus I meet, their time at the College was the "golden age" of Wabash and the president then was "their" president. Thad Seymour was and is "my" president. However, Andy Ford is also "my" president – for sure.

Big, big shoes to fill…



Dave Parry '57 – Explaining the Calls

If you’re like me, you’ve been watching a boat load of college football over the last several days.  There have been a number of very close calls – many reviewed and several changed after the review.  Game changing moments!

During those "TV timeouts" you’ve probably heard explanations of the calls and the success of instant review by the expert himself, the NCAA national coordinator of football officials. He seems to have skipped across the country, from Florida to California, spending his time flying or attending football games.

That expert is none other than Wabash’s own Dave Parry, Class of 1957.  Dave was an NFL official for many years and now seems to be in the broadcast booth as much as Corso and Holtz!

Thanks Dave for all you do for college sports – you’re some Little Giant!


Jeff McLochlin '83 – Serving all of us

Larry Knauff ’62, from League City, Texas, shared the following with us about Wabash alumnus Jeff McLochlin ’83.  Thanks Larry!

"Wabash alumnus, Army National Guard Master Sgt. Jeff McLochlin, Rochester, Indiana, second from right, and several of his buddies climbed a 10,000-foot peak near their base recently. McLochlin is near the eastern Afghanistan city of Gardez training Afghan soldiers."
