Scholars Reception with Doug Deardorf April 6, 2018
On Friday, April 6, 2018, TIAA Board Chairman Doug Deardorf '84 and TIAA Board Member Will Counts '09, convened with our Scholars at a private reception in the iconic Tower Board Room to further celebrate Campus Tribute Weekend. The full cohorts from Fall 2017 and Fall 2018 joined, as well as Kevin Roos, '16, from TIAA's very first Scholar's cohort from Fall 2015. Doug Deardorf addressed the ongoing importance of the Scholars program for both Thunderbird and for TIAA. "The building may move," he said'; "but that's just the hardware. The software - the people you meet and the memories you build - will endure." Special guests included Jenn Demoney, TIAA Scholars Program Manager; Abe Jacobs, '03 and Robbie Schuldt, ’86. After the reception we welcomed all passerby to stop in, and spent a few hours getting to know more amazing Tbirds.
