In recognition of his service on the Alumni Board, the Alumni of Color Reunion Committee, and the Class of 1973 Reunion Committee, Broderick Grubb ’73 is April's Macbassador of the Month.
Grubb, a Mac political science and economics double major, lives in his hometown of New Orleans. Despite the considerable distance and drastic change in temperature, Grubb has traveled back to Mac four times since October to attend Alumni Board and Reunion committee meetings.
He cites three reasons for serving on the Alumni Board and two Reunion committees: Meeting and making new friends who share similar ideas; reconnecting with the the college and his memories from his time as a Mac student; and giving back to "an institution that has been responsible for so much good that has happened in my life."
In addition to his generous contributions of time and talent, Grubb is a member of the Grand Society, the Summit Society, and the James Wallace Society, as well as a steward of the El-Kati Lectureship. "I support the College financially because the financial support of many people afforded me with the opportunity to attend Mac," said Grubb. "It is my time to pay it forward."
Grubb is particularly motivated to stay connected to the community because, he says, "Students of color, with the support of the administration, were able to persuade members of the Board of Trustees that diversity at Macalester was a good thing and should be supported by the college. I want to make certain that the college continues to seek out and support academically talented students and that students of color are included in that number."
