2013 Alumni Weekend

//////////////////////

If you weren’t at this year’s alumni weekend, then you missed out on an epic event. More than 150 guests attended the weekend’s festivities, which included an awards reception, a Capitol Hill briefing and an alumni ball, our signature event of the year.

Held at the Josephine Butler Parks Center in D.C.’s historic U Street Corridor, the ball was an evening to remember full of delicious food, cocktails, a D.J. and dancing. A silent auction raised over $1,500 in scholarship money for future TFAS students. Many thanks to the alumni host committee who helped throw a fantastic party!

Guests who attended the Capitol Hill event were treated to a briefing from a group of alumni volunteers – Jeremy Harrell (ICPES 07), who works for Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.); Kevin Seifert (ICPES 06), who works for Rep. Paul Ryan (Wisc.); and Jeff Zubricki (IBGA 05) of the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. The alumni panel discussed the issues important to their congressmen or committee and took questions from a lively audience in the Rayburn House Office Building. After the briefing, the alumni hosts led the delegation on a tour of the Capitol.

Of course, alumni weekend wouldn’t be complete without honoring our most accomplished alumni. This year’s alumni awards were presented at a reception held at TFAS Headquarters. Click here for a story about this year’s award recipients.
