For those of you who do not yet know me, my name is Paula Delaney. I am pleased and honored to be serving as the WPI Alumni Association President for the next two years. As a proud member of the class of 1975, I have found a number of ways to stay connected to our alma mater over the years, including the Alumni Association Board of Directors, Women of WPI, Tech Old Timers, Homecomings, Reunion committees and more. I look forward to connecting and working together with many of you.
It was wonderful to see so many alumni join us on-line earlier this month for our virtual Alumni Association Annual Meeting and class reunions for classes ending in 0, 1, 5, and 6. If you missed the meeting, you can catch up with the recording here. During the celebrations, we honored 22 alumni spanning the classes of 1960 to 2006 with Alumni Association Awards for professional achievement, service to WPI, and humanitarian leadership. What an inspiring group! Take a look at the complete list of winners and a snapshot of their achievements here.
As I look forward to the coming months, I hope for many opportunities to connect with you, perhaps even catching up in person on ‘The Hill.’ Stay tuned for upcoming events and programming. You can share your thoughts on the topics you’d like to learn about through this brief survey.
Until then, I hope that you stay well and healthy, and have a fantastic summer!
Paula M. Delaney ‘75
WPI Alumni Association President
