The 2016 Kohoutek Alumni Weekend brought music, emeriti faculty and Pitzer grads from across the continent and class years to the Mounds in April.
Amy Rosen ’76, a nationally recognized expert in comprehensive urban school-system reform strategies, was named the 2016 Distinguished Alumni Award winner. Community leader Better Avila ’08 was the 2016 Young Alumni Achievement Award recipient. The two were honored at a reception on April 22 at the Pitzer College President’s Residence.
Interim President Thomas Poon completed 26 laps around Pitzer’s campus to meet a $26,000 fundraising challenge. He also donated $100 per lap to support first-generation college student programs. Students, staff and Alumni Board President Brian Christiansen ’93 joined the fun.
