Brother Rice VP of Alumni Relations Jim Casey ‘70 has a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Here he is braving the elements (75 degrees and sunny) with four friends from the Class of 1969 and an unidentified Crusader wannabe at a Sox game on August 8, 2018. The are from left to right Bob Clasby, Jim Stalley, Casey, the Wannabe, Mike Vanier, and Pat Garrity. The Crusaders are chilling their refreshments with BR Chicago koozie.
When Brother Rice Alumni Relations Vice President Jim Casey ’70 learned that Tom Phelan ’18 was going to Ohio State, he reached out to Dr. Mark McCord from the Class of 1972. Find out what Dr. McCord is currently working on at OSU here!
Tom delivered on a promise to connect and have a picture taken with Dr. McCord, but even more importantly, Tom reports they had a great meeting and are “planning to have plenty more in the future.” Tom said Mark “was very welcoming and will be an awesome resource.”
Pictured with Tom and Mark are two fellow Buckeyes, one a recent graduate from doctorate studies, and both with backgrounds in civil engineering. Apparently, it did not take long for Tom to make meaningful connections, thanks to Mark’s openness to a fellow Crusader.
All alumni are encouraged to network with each other and share news about this with Jim Casey at email@example.com and Jim is happy to help facilitate connections with and among fellow alumni, of all ages.
