What are some memorable moments from your time on PSUB?

For all of us, two special memorable nights were the late night visits when we learned we had been selected for the Junior and Senior Boards. Hosting Louie Armstrong and the Lovin’ Spoonful would also be important. We can’t forget the camaraderie of working with the other board members on the different projects.

Advice for current students:

In your life you will have to deal with all types of people-some good and some not so good. You can learn from all of them, some as examples to follow, and some as examples of what to avoid. You will have a happier life if you remember the way you react to a situation is about you, not what the other person does.

How did being a part of PSUB help you throughout your career?

During my career I had to present at conventions all around the country and to host clients and prospective clients.  l also had to become comfortable working as a professional with older and highly placed company executives. My experiences at PSUB provided an introduction to that kind of interaction and professional dealing.

Homecoming Breakfast

Homecoming Breakfast

This year PSUB students had the opportunity to interact with 16 alumni. We had people from the 1960’s all the way to 2016. It was very exciting to hear how PSUB has transformed over the years. Ken Schwab (1969), Craig Newman (1971) and Lynaire White (1984) all spoke to the group about how PSUB has impacted their lives and their careers. We are grateful that they took the time to share their stories with us and the students. Attendees at the breakfast had the chance to look at old President binders, scrapbooks, and posters, as well as the chance to mingle with others. It was fun getting to see members reconnect and catch up with one another!
