The Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) Board of Directors conducted its annual summer meeting June 14-16 in Atlanta, Ga.

Outgoing Board Chair Arlene Greenfield, BSHE ’71, presided over her final meeting during which the board discussed involvement in regional efforts associated with the University’s The Promise Lives Campaign; transitioned the work of the board to new committees; welcomed incoming Chair Bill Hilyard, BSED ’67 and Vice Chair Julie Mann, BBA ’02; and recognized four retiring members:

  • Todd Calamita, BBA ’93 (Charlotte, N.C.)

  • Charles Crews, BSIS ’93 (Gahanna, Ohio)

  • J.D. Hupp, BSSE ’99 (Beaver Falls, Pa.)

  • John Wharton, BBA ’71 (Athens, Ohio)

A highlight of the meeting was an alumni event for Atlanta-area graduates, their family and friends. More than 75 individuals attended the event to celebrate Ohio University and The Promise Lives Campaign, to network and to enjoy the company of fellow Bobcats in Atlanta.

In attendance were Ohio University President Roderick J. McDavis, BSED ’70; Atlanta OUAA Chapter President Neil Brogan, BSC ’96; OHIO’s The Promise Lives Campaign Regional Campaign Chair Michael Swain, BBA ’97; and 2012 Alumni Distinguished Service Award recipient Carl Walker, BSED ’56. On Saturday, the chapter hosted a Gwinnett Braves Game, which 30 Bobcats attended.
