Witt Nation 2009 Hits The Road
The Office of Alumni Relations’ award-winning alumni tour kicked into high gear June 19 with new faces and a new theme. Titled “Witt Nation-Engage,” this year’s tour introduces the full-time traveling duo of Ashley Manson ’09 (below left) and Ben McCombs ’09 (middle). Both will be joined throughout the trip by Director of Alumni Relations Linda Prain Beals ’87 (right) and fellow members of the inaugural Witt Nation team Bob Rafferty ’02, director of new media and webmaster, and Ashley Petersen ’07, assistant director of alumni relations. This year’s trip also has a significant faculty component with more than 25 faculty members signed up to participate at one or more stops.
“The enthusiasm and excitement about this year’s trip has been overwhelming,” Beals said. “We are thrilled to be on the road again.”
While on tour for 33 days, the 2009 Witt Nation roadies will travel more than 8,000 miles, host events in 27 cities, conduct several service events and meet more than 1,000 Wittenberg alumni, students, and future students, all the while capturing their Wittenberg memories and stories as they discuss what it means to be a Wittenberger.
