WCU Alumni,

As you are aware, the WCU Alumni Association (WCUAA) recently completed our elections process and I am happy to announce the WCUAA Executive Committee. President – Dean Gentekos ’07, Vice President – Matthew Holliday ’09, Secretary – Denise Trigo ’98, Treasurer – Robert (“Bob”) Smith ’72 and Past President – Jeff Stein ’91. Although the Association is under new leadership we hope to propel us to further success. We look forward to facilitating an inclusive and refreshing fun culture within the Association, and hope you will look for opportunities to attend our tremendous events where you can connect with us and each other.

For most, choosing a University for your undergraduate career is a difficult decision and I was no different. Quite honestly, all the facts and circumstances should have led me to a different institution. My gut told me differently and I felt something very special at my visit to West Chester. That gut feeling turned out to be right. I fell in love with West Chester University and the borough throughout my years as an undergraduate. So much so, that I am happy to say that I still call West Chester my home. It's such an honor to represent fellow alumni and to have the opportunity to make a difference for WCU and the alumni community.

H
owever, none of this would be possible without the help of a lot of individuals. The success of the Alumni Association is driven by the Board of Directors, committee volunteers, the Director and Assistant Director of Alumni Relations (Debbie Naughton & Jenna Birch ’06) and most importantly, by you.  If you haven't been as active in supporting the Alumni Association as you would like, don't fret, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to do so this year. Please visit our volunteer page for more information on how you can get involved with the Alumni Association.  I hope to see you at Alumni Weekend, May 19-21, 2017.

The Board of Directors thanks you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon. Your loyalty and support for West Chester University is what makes our Alumni Association stand out amongst the rest.

Go Rams!

Dean Gentekos ’07
