Hall of Fame Nominations, Reunion Planning and Picnic Photos

As the esteemed Tom Trombley noted in his President’s Message, there have been some updates at the Alumni Association website.  Take a moment to check these out!

The Annual Hall of Fame dinner is October 19 and reservations are due October 4. See the invitation here and celebrate the induction of outstanding Riverside Alumni: Alumni Ellen Arsulic Forbus – Class of 1980, Deborah Sorber Rosch – Class of 1980 and Col. Brian Peterson, USMC – Class of 1989; and Athlete Alumni Melissa Ezzo Latshaw– Class of 1993, Russell Pernus – Class of 1991, and Nathan Tekavic – Class of 1997. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Cleveland Northeast – Mentor. Tickets are $30 per person.

For next year’s Hall of Fame — 2020 — nominations are now open and will close January 31, 2020. Nomination forms are available here for the categories of Alumni, Athlete and Faculty/Staff. Read the criteria and information needed and begin your planning to nominate someone you think is deserving. A list of past honorees is here — check to make sure they have not already been recognized.

We’ve added a new section to the Reunion Resources section called “Finding Classmates.” Reaching out to classmates to let them know about a reunion is a tough job for the reunion committee. Finding them is even more daunting. We’ve posted some suggestions on how to find classmates, including a list of all known individual class websites or Facebook pages. We even have some other advice like, “start early!” If you are involved with planning a reunion, please check out the resources section, and do let us know as soon as you have some dates nailed down. We’ll post that in the Events Calendar and update it as your plans progress. And do let us know if you have additional suggestions or website locations!

If you were not there, the Fifth Annual All Alumni Picnic was a smashing success! We’ve posted photos from that and the 2018 Picnic on the Picnic page.  Mark the dates on your calendar and plan to attend the next picnic! More details about the picnic will be coming in the next months!

There other updates — more photos and videos. Check it out and leave us a comment or two!
