The Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for the 2009 alumni awards:

• The new Blaisdell Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes alumni whose contributions and achievements in their profession or community mark them as illustrious persons even among the accomplished body of Pomona alumni.

• The Alumni Distinguished Service Award pays tribute to an alumnus or alumna in recognition of that person’s selfless commitment and ongoing volunteer service to Pomona College.

• The Inspirational Young Alumni Award honors a graduate of the last decade for his or her dedication, perseverance, and consistency in following the inscription on the College Gates: “They only are loyal to this college who departing bear their added riches in trust for mankind.”

Send names of nominees, with a brief supporting statement, to the Alumni Office at 305 N. College Avenue, Claremont, CA 91711, or alumni@pomona.edu by Oct. 31.

Update Your E-mail
Did you know that our most popular alumni events sell out before most people even hear about them? That’s because alumni with e-mail hear about events before the “snail mail” makes it to your home or office. Now, updating your e-mail address with the College is as easy at 1–2–3: 1) Go to www.pomona.edu/emailupdate. 2) Enter your name, class year and e-mail address. 3) Click Submit. That’s it.

Meet the Alumni Board
Under the leadership of President Tom Minar ’85, the Alumni Association welcomes four new board members this year: Eliza Finley ’09, ASPC President; Andy Agle ’91, a member-at-large from Santa Monica, Calif; Susanne Garvey ’74, a member-at-large from Alexandria, Va; and John Graham ’86, a member-at-large from Claremont, Calif. Meet all the board members online at www.pomona.edu/alumni (click on “The Alumni Board”).
