Crediting Washburn for setting the stage for successful careers, seven Washburn University graduates were honored as Alumni Association Fellows on Friday at the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center.
Alumni honored were Bradley E. Haddock (School of Law), Ron W. Marshall (School of Applied Studies), Glenn E. Nierman (College of Arts and Sciences), Eric R. Slusser (School of Business), Robert E. Stephens (College of Arts and Sciences), Carla D. Walker (College of Arts and Sciences) and Carol L. Wheeler (School of Nursing).
“I couldn’t have asked for a better education,” Slusser, bba ’83, said. “I’ve run across students and graduates of schools across the country, including what many say are the best business schools, and I’d put a Washburn graduate against them any day. Washburn’s education serves us well.”
The 2012 Fellows represent a versatile group of honorees with careers in law, health care, business, editing, teaching and nursing. You can read more about the Fellows on the Alumni Association’s 2012 Fellows page.
“We’re thrilled to honor such a wonderful and versatile group of alumni,” said Alumni director Susie Hoffmann. “These alumni do great things for the university and their support of Washburn speaks volumes.”
The Alumni Association kicked off the celebration Friday with a reunion reception for current and former Fellows. The program began in 1992 and has included more than 130 honorees. Several former Fellows attended the event, as well as the 2012 luncheon at the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center.
The Alumni Association capped the day with After Hours, a monthly social.
