In a few short weeks, Homecoming will be here and the Society of Wabash Class Agents will be back on campus for their annual meeting. This Homecoming marks the 60th Anniversary of the Society. We’re set to welcome back class agents spanning the decades of the 1940s to the 2010s.
In between all of the logistics surrounding Homecoming, I couldn’t help but think about the contributions of some of our best class agents. And when you think about impact, my good friend Dick Griesser ’51 is right at the top of the list.
He was sooooo proud of the Class of 1951 and their long time support of the College – they are among our most loyal classes. He treasured his classmates. Sure, the Phi Psi bunch held a special place in his heart but that’s OK…they should. Think about the time Dick was a student at Wabash – War, new fraternity, world changes – and you get a sense of lasting memories in a number of ways.
Dick now resides in Class Agent heaven, I am pretty sure. I’ll bet he sees Dorman Hughes ’43 every day.
Being a class agent isn’t easy. It’s a labor of love…for Wabash and for the class. Dick Griesser was a standard bearer.
