Classmates, happy New Year and sincere wishes for an enjoyable and rewarding 2019. Last year was an interesting one, with a couple of challenges along the way. You can get caught up by accessing our first electronic newsletter, which was published and emailed last fall. 2018 Fall Newsletter
We will continue to use email for many communications, so please make sure that your email address is up to date. Contact Chuck Bunting for information and to make appropriate updates.
Class Dues notices went out on-line in late January. Paying your Class Dues is essential for maintaining the Class infrastructure. Our dues support specific Class initiatives and are separate from gifts to the university. Paying Class Dues also gives you exclusive access to a reduced rate on a subscription to the award-winning Cornell Alumni Magazine. Pay your class dues online today by clicking here: Pay Class Dues.
When you pay your Class Dues, please consider adding a donation to our Class Gift Fund. Or you can give a separate donation by clicking here: Class Gift Fund. As you know, the CGF has provided many memorable gifts to Cornell. The Class of 1962 Baseball Scoreboard, shown below, stands proudly over Hoy Field and will do so for the next fifteen years. You can review the story of the Scoreboard in the electronic newsletter. 2018 Fall Newsletter
We have continued to support the key Class legacy gift, the Class of 1962 Fund for Photography at the Johnson Museum of Art. In January, the Class Council approved the donation of an additional $9300 to the Fund, bringing total Fund donations to $59,450. (To see our Class collection online, Go to: Johnson Museum of Art; Search: the Collections; Keyword Search: Class of 1962 Photography.) You can, also, check out our photography collection under Archives/Johnson Museum Brochure.
We have also continued to support the Frank and Rosa Rhodes – Class of 1962 Tradition Fellowship. Anja Samardzija was the 2018 recipient and she was selected again for 2019. An article on Anja appears in the Fall 2018 electronic newsletter 2018 Fall Newsletter. Anja advised that she is studying electrical and computer engineering with the intention of going to graduate school after completing her undergraduate education. Most of her interest is working in the intersection of artificial intelligence, robotics and biomedical devices. In addition to being a Dean’s List student, Anja is involved in a wide range of campus and community activities.
Please advise of any questions, suggestions or concerns. Good Health and Happiness in 2019.
Neil Schilke, President
