alumNI NEWs ] alumNI hIghlIghTs highlights of a vibrant year for bac alumni aIa conve ntion a nd Expo in san francisco The AIA Convention is always a great opportunity to connect with BAC alums living at a distance. BAC staff, including Constance Ferreira, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, traveled to the west coast in April to attend the 2009 AIA Convention and Expo. We were delighted that alumni and friends sought out the BAC booth. Some reminisced, some were looking for updates on campus happenings, and all were impressed with the progress of the BAC programs, and most notably, the College’s greater national and global educational profile. Together with the BSA, the BAC held a reception for friends that host ed BAC alumni, recipients of AIA awards, and architects elected this year to the College of Fellows. We look forward to seeing our alumni at the 2010 AIA Convention in Miami on June 10 –12, 20 10. Information about the alumni reception will be available at www.the-bac.edu. alumni attendance at 2009 commencement was a Record high The BAC alumni were well represented with over 40 in attendance, robed and hooded. Since alumni serve the BAC in many varied capacities, as members of governance, faculty, committees and boards, Commencement is a great opportunity for alumni to collectively join in the celebration of our newest graduates. Each year we encourage alumni to participate, and increasingly, we are seeing more and more alums on campus in May. Alumni, we hope to see you next year! The alumni association bestows honor of 2009 distinguished alumni in ser vice award to leo mccormack ’70, aIa Alumni Association President David Silverman, ’94 presented Leo with a plaque to commemo- rate his over forty years of ser vice to the BAC as a dedicated volunteer, faculty and govern- ance member, citing as he presented to Leo, “Your ser vice sets a standard of e xcellen ce and devotion by which voluntee rism is mea sured at the BAC.” For decades, the BAC community has greatly benefited from Leo’s commitment and continued service, performed in a noble, unassuming manner. We are grateful to count Leo amongst our most valued BAC alumni. The class of 1984 celebrates its 25th Reunion Members from the classes of the 80’s, friends, and colleagues helped the Class of ’84 celebrate an important milestone, the commemoration of their 25th reunion. The event took place in the Library and was held in conjunction with the BAC’s 120th Commencement exercises on May 30th. Holly Cratsley ’84 was the mastermind behind the get-together, and was delighted with the turnout. The BAC kinship was in full force as old friends reconnected and shared their BAC stories of struggles and triumphs. Holly commented to the group, “As alumni, we are the finest example of what a BAC educ ation produc e s.” Indeed, BAC alumni are the product of a very unique education model, based in professional practice and rooted in the spirit of lifelong learning. Holly also added that as the first of the reunion gatherings, she hopes the ’84 reunion inspires other alumni to participate in organized events on campus. class of 1984 Reunion leo mccormick shirley Ransom 38 pRacTIcE
