Alumni Remembrance Ceremony

Nov 16, 2012, 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Old College Hall | Forest Grove Campus

The Office of Alumni Relations recognizes alumni who have passed away by completing a final Sign, Shake and Ring in their honor.

Tradition to incoming students, the Sign, Shake and Ring ceremony is done as an initiation into the University.

When alumni pass away, the Office of Alumni Relations inscribes their name into a book of remembrances, and in their honor we ring the bell in Old College Hall to acknowledge their passing.

We will be remembering Connie Bese, MAT '09, Sam Arashiro '79, Len Gilman '41, Jack Inmon '70, George "Bud" Johnston '50, Fred Chin '52, O.D. '53, J. Lee Stevens, O.D. '61, Joyce (Hall) Goeller '41, Mike Korach '43, Rhoda Mills '39, Lincoln "Eric" Hoilien '60, John Petersen '61, Marilyn "Bobbi" (Collatz) Bodor '49, Beth Westcott, MAT '94, Marcia Byers West '69, Curtis Knight '52, Bob Lindley, O.D. '64, Donald Papke '59, Katherine Selmar '84, Donald Todd '51, William Pollock '49, O.D. '50, former department chair of psychology, Dr. Maurice McDowell and professor emeritus from the School of Professional Psychology, Dr. Jay Thomas.

Family, friends and former classmates are welcome during this informal ceremony done four times a year on the Forest Grove campus.

The Office of Alumni Relations encourages members of the University community to provide obituaries so we can contact their families.
