The WPI Alumni Association is pleased to be honoring Bill “Tuna” Trask with the Alumni Association Distinguished Service Award during Homecoming weekend. This award recognizes an individual for his/her lifetime contributions to the WPI community at large and reflects the friendship, support, and overall responsiveness to the needs and interests of students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff over the years. A reception will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 2 to honor Trask, who has been, and continues to be, a friend and mentor to the WPI family.
