With Spring Break behind us the campus community is rushing headlong into the final six weeks of the school year. This is always an energetic time on campus and even as our students, faculty and staff look to finish the semester strong, we begin to look forward to next fall. A few upcoming events over Homecoming weekend to mark on your calendars are all of the class reunions (1956, 1961, 1971, 1981, 1986, 1991, 2001 & 2006) and a special reunion for all former athletes who were coached by Jim Chroust in basketball, football, or track. Coach Chroust and his wife, Carol, will be back in Sterling for the 2011 Homecoming festivities October 14 & 15. The Chrousts will be the Grand Marshalls of the Homecoming Parade. Be watching upcoming eNewsletters for more information as details are finalized. It would be a blessing to the Chrousts to have many of Coach’s former athletes back on campus. Start planning now to “come home” to Sterling in October.
One other event that is closer on the calendar is the Mississippi Valley Alumni event on April 29th . The First Presbyterian Church of Moline, Ill, will be the site for Mississippi Valley gathering. The evening will begin with a potluck supper at 6:30pm followed by a Skype conversation with four current SC students. The address is 801 16th St., Moline. For questions or to RSVP contact Keith Asmus ’71 563-940-6698.
