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.
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 ’73. 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.”
All alumni are encouraged to network with each other and share news about this with Jim Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org and Jim is happy to help facilitate connections with and among fellow alumni, of all ages.
