Jerry and Pam Kearney Host PACE "Breakout Minnesota" Gathering

Posted Dec. 17, 2015
 

In early November, Jerry and Pam Kearney hosted a group of 11 Princeton undergraduates for a week at their lake home on the Iron Range in Northeastern  MN.  Participating in Princeton’s PACE Center for Community Engagement "Breakout Minnesota” project, the students were studying the issues arising from the "mining jobs vs. the environment” debate currently being argued in MN.  After a hectic

day of meetings with competing stakeholders, the students returned to our home to discuss the issues before a roaring fire and then enjoy one of Pam’s regional cuisine dinners.  We were impressed with the students’ enthusiasm and engagement!  Anyone interested in the students’ summary of their steep learning curve about the issues can read their blog @ http://breakoutminnesota.tumblr.com/


Class President Kitto Hosts Portland Gathering

Posted Dec. 21, 2014

On Dec. 15, Class president RICK KITTO hosted a gathering of classmates from the Pacific Northwest at the Kittos' condo in the Pearl District in Portland, directly across the street from the world-famous Powell’s Books. In attendance were BOB ANDRE, BRUCE DEBOLT, STEVE and Sandra HOHF, CLIFF ROBERSON and GEORGE SHERIDAN as well as Woody and Anne English ’68 (photo, right.  Left-to-Right:  Hohf, Sheridan, Andre, DeBolt, Kitto, Roberson, English). The gathering was prior to the reception and dinner at The Nines Hotel nearby to welcome the new president of Princeton, and honorary '69 classmate, Christopher Eisgruber ’83.


The distance awards for the ‘69 gathering went to Bob Andre, who was down from Seattle where he is still practicing law, and Professor Skip Sheridan, up from Eugene where he is a professor of French history at the University of Oregon.


It was something of a homecoming for President Eisgruber, who went to high school in Corvallis, Oregon, where his father was a professor at Oregon State University. He has a diverse background and interests: Chris led the Corvallis HS chess team to a national championship; majored in physics at Princeton; has a law degree and clerked for Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens; and had been Princeton provost since 2004. He was greeted enthusiastically in Portland by a dinner crowd of 250 Princeton alums and guests representing all classes. He admitted that as a high school student in the PNW he had his mind set on Stanford, but was not admitted at The Farm so chose to attend Princeton—their loss, our gain—without ever having visited the campus.


Classmate Buechner Creates New Non-Profit:  Champions for Urban Youth

Posted Nov. 13, 2014


Princeton University Alumnus ’69, Robert Buechner and Dick Adams, retired P&G executive, have co-founded Champions for Urban Youth, an arm of the not for profit Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, to connect mature adults in our community with public school students. They believe that through Champions for Urban Youth, "Our entire community will be enriched by the sharing of experiences and values caused by bringing people together who come from different cultural and economic backgrounds to generate win-win situations. The important point of this concept is to provide individuals in our community the opportunity to connect with schools in ways that they will feel will be of most interest to them. Then the volunteers and the students will benefit.”


Bob Buechner has raised the bar for all of us as he puts forth a compelling call-to-action through his new book, My Winning Season: Becoming a Champion for Urban Youth.


Buechner and Adams hope that through Bob’s new book, the concept of Champions for Urban Youth will gain some traction. "With so many different opportunities for individuals to volunteer in our public schools and other urban institutions, it only makes sense that there be an organization active in the actual recruitment of individuals with both time and interest in matching their skills with the needs of the community.”


ABOUT CHAMPIONS FOR URBAN YOUTH

The purpose of Champions for Urban Youth, founded in 2014, is to connect mature adults in our community with public school students. This movement, Champions for Urban Youth, encourages everyone to use their own gifts and resources to affect positive change right in their own neighborhoods.
