Wabash College Board of Trustees Alumni Representative

The four alumni presented here have been selected as candidates to serve on the Wabash College Board of Trustees by the Board of Directors of The National Association of Wabash Men. Ballots were sent to all Wabash College Alumni in early March. Each alumnus is privileged to vote for two of the candidates on the slate, or write in the name of any qualified alumnus whose name does not appear here. (A qualified alumnus is any man who attended Wabash for at least one year.)

The men who receive the greatest number of votes will be elected and serve on the Board for a four-year term, 2008-2012. (One trustee is elected by alumni in odd-numbered years and two in even-numbered years. Six of the 30 members of the Board of Trustees are elected by alumni.) This year’s candidates are Ted Grossnickle ’73, Terry Hamilton ’89, James Kilbane ’84, and Scott Smalstig ’88.

In recommending candidates, the Board of Directors has in mind the following qualifications desirable for a Wabash College trustee:

  • He supports the mission, core values, history, and traditions of Wabash College, and has a vivid sense of owning the College and making it strong for the next generation;

  • He professionally is a high achiever who shares time, talent, and treasure to the benefit of the College;

  • His interest in education should be genuine and deep-rooted;

  • He identifies and helps recruit young men to attend the College, participates in admissions and advancement events, and when possible provides career development opportunities for students;

  • He places Wabash College at or near the top of his philanthropic endeavors, including participation in the Annual Fund; and

  • Participates in campus events, visits classes, and actively engages in informal discussions with students, faculty, and staff.

Ballots will be canvassed on the fourth Tuesday in April, and the result will be reported within three days to the secretary of the Board of Trustees.

All ballots must be received at Wabash College on or before April 22, 2008, for consideration.
