2015 Reunion – Class of 1958
Celebrating Mont Alto Magic
“My first remembrance of Mont Alto is that there is something magical going on here,” said Robert (Bob) Slagle ’58 after being named a Penn State Mont Alto Distinguished Fellow on June 3rd, during the Class of 1958 Reunion. “The magic is still here, and I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate with you,” he said. “We are Penn State and this is Mont Alto!” View photos from the reunion here.
For members of The Class of 1958, the main Reunion objective was to reminisce and reconnect to Penn State Mont Alto and each other. There was plenty of that and so much more during their three-day reunion, June 3-5.
The classmates and their spouses – about thirty in all – explored the campus and recorded their individual biographies about their careers after graduating from Penn State. They learned from Penn State faculty members, Drs. Lauraine Hawkins and Peter Linehan; heard historic tales from Storyteller Nancy Pritt; and chatted with forest technology students enrolled in Dr. Beth Brantley’s class. On June 3rd they honored a few of their own, when the Joseph E. Ibberson Founders Tree was recognized and the 2015 Distinguished Fellows were named.
The 2015 Distinguished Fellows are (l-r) Robert (Bob) Slagle ’58, Joseph Barnard ’60, and Lt. Col. Richard (Dick) F. Kost ’58, US Army (Ret). Not pictured is the late John F. Marker ’58.
