Thank you to all who attended our annual Spring Reception last week! As always, it was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the College. Hundreds of members of the Peirce community gathered together under the tents on Carlisle Street for an evening of food, drinks, friends, laughs, and networking. The skies might have opened up for parts of the evening, but a little rain never stopped us!
The Alumni Association honored several standout Peirce people during the event. Albert G. Cederstrom, Jr. ’43 was the recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award. As we blogged about previously, Al announced as he accepted his award that he has committed $50,000 to establish the Albert G. Cederstrom and Emilie I. Cederstrom Memorial Fund for Human Resource Management. The Alumni Association also honored Babette Pace ’06 with the 2012 Distinguished Service Award. She has done outstanding work on behalf of Peirce with students, alumni, faculty, and the paralegal community. Peirce President James J. Mergiotti and Peirce Alumni Association President Steven Wurtz ’08 also stepped to the podium to reflect on the events of the past year.
Be sure to watch our previously posted video featuring Mr. Cederstrom and his gift, and then watch the video below for more highlights from our Spring Reception -- maybe you’ll see your own face in the crowd!
