MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN As the Alumni Association launches a new magazine in 2011, I wanted to thank all of you who had such an impact in 2009 and 2010. There were accolades from business publications, remarkable students earning their degrees, unprecedented involvement by the alumni, and the loss of a prominent member of the Crummer family. Dr. Edward Moses made a difference in the growth and quality of the Crummer Graduate School through his efforts as Dean and Professor. We miss his spirit and his passion and we know that the school would not have received the recognition it has earned without his early involvement and vision. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we are deeply honored by those alumni and friends who have generously supported the creation of a new scholarship in his name to ensure his legacy. In the following pages you will find the names of alumni, friends, faculty, staff members, and businesses that have generously contributed in 2009 and 2010. Your gifts are reminders that the efforts of everyone at Crummer are important to our alumni and friends and we strive to be worthy of your support. Thank you.

Craig McAllaster

Richard “Dick” Conklin ’70MCS “Crummer has come a long, long way since I attended in the 1960s while working on Project Apollo at KSC. Now that we are back in the area, it’s easier to visit the campus and attend special events, such as the Crummer Oktoberfest Scholarship Fundraiser. My ex-employer’s matching grants program still works, making it easier to contribute. It’s great to be back!”

With 6,017 Crummer alumni scattered across the United States and abroad, the Clubs will provide a variety of opportunities for alumni to connect and help create a closer alumni network. Our first 10 cities were selected based on areas with large concentrations of alumni as well as alumni interest in getting involved.
