Boylston street became memory lane June 1–3 as more than 400 alumni, friends, faculty and staff returned to campus to celebrate Alumni Weekend 2018. Generations of Emersonians gathered to relive memories, reconnect with friends and classmates, and celebrate all things Emerson.
The weekend featured many special reunion celebrations, including a huge showing from?the 50th?reunion?Class of 1968, and a kick-off party with a life size replica of the beloved Beacon Street “Wall.”
Guests saw the recently revamped Expression Magazine come to life in the new Expression:LIVE! event, connected with classmates on the Boat Cruise, celebrated with families at the All Class Lunch, and danced the night away with DJ Nora Jordan ’12 at the Bash@Center Stage, held in Emerson’s brand new dining center.
The Alumni Association Awards Breakfast, which included the State of the College from President Pelton, was held on the Robert J. Orchard Stage at the Paramount Center. Following the address from Pelton, Alumni Board Immediate Past President Travis Small ’97, passed the gavel to incoming President Carla Lewis ’86. Her first duty as President included recognizing five accomplished alumni. Author Drew Daywalt ’92, journalist Frederick Nnoma-Addison ’02, and technical director Howard Zweig ’68 received the Distinguished Alumni Award. Publisher Stacey Barney, MFA ’04, and actress Emily Skeggs ’12 received the Young Alumni Achievement Award.
“I am grateful to Emerson for so much: for encouraging and nurturing my writing ability and teaching me how to do the same with others, and for introducing me to book publishing, which had been only the vaguest of notions to me until I took a Book Publishing 101 course in my first year,” said Barney in her remarks, given on her behalf from Emerson Graduate Program Director Creative Writing Jabari Asim. “At Emerson I found my career and I found myself. Thank you to this tremendous community for preparing me well and for bestowing?this award?upon me. It means the world to me.”
The spirited and dedicated Class of 1968 presented Pelton with a check for $310,544, one of the largest reunion gifts in school history. The event concluded with a special recognition for Barbara Rutberg ’68, who for 18 years, served the institution in many roles, from Alumni Board President, Director of Alumni Relations, AVP of Development and Alumni Relations and on three occasions, and as Interim VP for Development and Alumni Relations. ?
Emerson Trustee Pat Peyton ’84 spoke of Rutberg’s impact on the Emerson community and presented her with a small gift. President Pelton also recognized her, and on behalf of the College, presented her with a $10,000 gift to the Barbara S. Rutberg ’68 Endowed Graduate Scholarship in Fiction.
“You are someone whose generosity, humble and selfless commitment to Emerson is woven throughout our great community. Thank you for all you’ve done through these many years,” said Pelton. “Today, it is my pleasure to honor you and present to you a gift that will go to work immediately and in perpetuity in your name, to help our deserving students, just as you intended.”
