What do a lawyer, two professors, a business executive, magazine editor and two health care administrators have in common? All seven will be honored Friday at Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center during a luncheon for the 2012 Washburn Alumni Association Fellows.
Honorees are Brad Haddock, jd ’80; Ron Marshall, bs ’73; Glenn Nierman, b music ’72; Eric Slusser, bba ’83; Robert Stephens, bs ’74; Carla Walker, ba ’99; and Carol Wheeler, bsn ’83.
Fellows have been honored by the Alumni Association since 1992 to recognize distinguished alumni. The program brings alumni to campus to meet with students, faculty and other alumni and share their expertise formally and informally in the classroom and other campus settings.
“We’re pleased to honor these wonderful alumni and grateful that they give back to our university,” said Alumni Association director Susie Hoffmann. “Each of the schools and the College of Arts and Sciences benefit greatly from their visits to campus.”
The 2012 Fellows have a wide variety of experience in their various careers:
The luncheon is one of several events hosted by the Alumni Association during Homecoming week. On Friday morning, the organization hosts a 20-year anniversary reception for all Fellows. At 5 p.m., the Alumni Association hosts After Hours, a monthly social.
On Saturday, the Alumni Association hosts a tailgate beginning at 11 a.m. north of Moore Bowl before the Ichabods’ game against Northwest Missouri State University.
