Westminster alums can be found making a difference in many ways all over the country.  Audrey Remley, emeritus faculty member, recently reunited with two such unique alums and provided an update on their lives. 

Melinda Veatch, Class of 1983, was a member of the notable first entering class of women in 1979.  She is an ordained Presbyterian minister and currently is the Executive Director of the Tarrant Area Community of Churches in Fort Worth, Texas.

Roy Birk, Class of 1996, is a language analyst with the US Department of Defense.  He lives and works in Maryland and speaks both French and Arabic.

In this age of social media, it’s easier than ever to reconnect with old friends via Facebook, Twitter, Skype, etc.  Despite being able to catch up on what you’ve each been doing the last 10, 20, 30+ years, social media cannot replace that face-to-face feeling!  Reminiscing about favorite professors, tough exams, great parties and the Westminster experience is best done in person.  Many of you do this each year at Alumni Weekend, but others have found yourself losing track of people who were once close friends.  Don’t let another year pass by – make 2012 the year you RECONNECT with Westminster friends!  Contact the Alumni Office at 573-632-1937 or email alumni@westminster-mo.edu to take the first step.

Have you already reconnected with your Westminster friends?  We’d love to hear about it!  Share your story our Facebook page or email alumni@westminster-mo.edu
