Fall 2010

The Arizona Chapter has provided its members with several opportunities to reconnect with fellow alumni. In October, the chapter welcomed Northwest President Dr. John Jasinski and his wife, Denise. In December, the chapter hosted watch parties at The Paradise Lounge in Phoenix, Ariz., for the semifinal and national championship football games. In March, the chapter welcomed Coach Mel Tjeerdsma and his wife, Carol, as they hosted a National Championship Celebration that included a meet-and-greet and autograph signing at Cadillac Ranch in Tempe, Ariz. The following day, the Tjeerdsmas joined the chapter at a spring training baseball game in Surprise, Ariz., where the Kansas City Royals took on the Oakland A's. In the past year, the chapter also created groups on both LinkedIn and Facebook to allow members to stay connected and network with each other as well as with Northwest. Visit "AZ Bearcats" on either site to connect with them.
