This year Lori and I have the honor of co-chairing the ISU Alumi Association Cardinal & Gold Gala with Harvey (’70 ’73) and Marcia (’73) Freese. We cordially invite you to celebrate with us on February 9th. It is sure to be an evening of excitement with nearly 600 of our fellow Cyclones. Tickets are going fast!

Like many Iowans, my family and I are Cyclones. My wife, Lori (’86) and I (’87) both graduated from ISU. Our son, Carl, played football at and graduated from ISU (’12 ’14) as well. Recently our son, Jake, was accepted into ISU to pursue a Masters of Systems Engineering (’19). We are fans and supporters of this great institution as well as lifetime members of the Alumni Association.
The Guiding Principles of the Alumni Association are the same principles that have guided me both personally and professionally—innovation, collaboration, building community, and passion to name a few. It has always been my passion to assist businesses, corporations and investors (for-profit, public and charitable sectors) including ISU entities, to Transform, Perform and Grow. Much like the Alumni Association, we aim to help people and organizations who are changing the world, achieve what matters most.
To make their mission, vision and principles a reality, the Association works very hard to build the ISU community and connect alumni, students and friends of ISU with each other. The ISU Alumni Gala is the annual celebration that raises “funds for critical student and alumni outreach programming that inspires future generations of Cyclones, as well as vital scholarships for first-time generation college students.” Something very near and dear to our hearts given that Lori is a first generation college student.
Help us achieve what matters most in our ISU community—-building, transforming and growing our future generation Cyclones. You’re invited to come and celebrate!
