< Khaled Habayeb | Macbassador Profile List | Rita Reynolds Gehrenbeck >

When Reunion weekend rolls around, Peter Ahn '87 may let out a sigh of relief. Besides being a cofounder and partner in the Minneapolis-based Hemisphere Companies and a member of Macalester’s Board of Trustees, Ahn is chairing the Class of 1987’s 25-Year Reunion Committee.

"Peter Ahn has been an enthusiastic chair for the Class of 1987 25th Reunion," says Director of Alumni Relations Gabrielle Lawrence '73. "He has recruited an excellent committee, which has set ambitious goals for class attendance and participation."

Although this has been a particularly busy year for Ahn, his dedication to Macalester stretches back to his graduation. He has spoken to economics classes, served as a career networking resource, and provided job shadowing opportunities. He also serves as an Annual Fund class agent, was a member of the Step Forward campaign steering committee, served on the lead gift and Grand Society committees, and has made an Annual Fund gift every year since 1990.

"I volunteer because I can, I have the time, and I love Macalester," Peter says. "If I can connect alumni to the college, provide an opportunity for them to come back and learn about today's student experience and see the importance of Macalester, then volunteering becomes even more meaningful."
