Erik Jackson '05 is May's Macbassador of the Month. As a director of M Club, an alumni group for former Mac varsity athletes, Erik has organized events including spring, winter, and fall sports days on campus, and offered ideas for M Club events that other alumni chapters can use. He has organized alumni gatherings in Denver where he lives, including a Macalester team for the region's Race for the Cure in October 2009, a happy hour in March 2010, and alumni participation in the Edgerunner 5K earlier this month.

When asked why he is so enthusiastic about his alma mater, he said, "It's the people. Attending Macalester was a defining time for me and the people throughout the Mac family — the staff, students, and alumni — have brought a lot of joy to my life. I hope my contributions help just a little bit for others to feel the same."

He is also serving as co-chair with Christina Hagstrum '05 of the Class of 2005 5-year Reunion Committee. Even with his busy schedule, he has worked tirelessly to reach out to classmates and invite them back to campus this June 4-6. He is a loyal Annual Fund donor and has given every year since he graduated. Join us in congratulating Erik for being Macbassador of the Month!
