These alumni volunteers were recognized as Macbassadors of the Month in 2016.
- Kathy Kim '12
In recognition of her continued dedication to current students and fellow alumni, Kathy Kim '12 is our Macbassador of the Month for March.
Kim, an economics major, has been back to campus no fewer than five times this year for a variety of events, which makes her one of the most active alumni volunteers on campus. Her visits included connecting with students of color, assisting with interviews for the Career Development Center and talking with students about her work as a consultant in the Healthcare Industry at Optum.
"Macalester has played such a large part in who I am today and I'm so grateful for the lasting friendships and the contributions from the staff and faculty," Kim says. "My experience on campus was made so much richer by the alumni network. The generosity of the alums that I've encountered speaks to the quality and character of the Macalester family. It's an honor to be a part of it."
In addition to her generous gifts of time and talent, Kim is also a member of the Annual Fund's Grand Society. Please join us in congratulating Kathy Kim '12, our March Macbassador of the Month!
- Karl Anuta '57
In recognition of his decades of dedication to the larger Macalester community, Karl Anuta '57 is our Macbassador of the Month for February.
Anuta majored in Political Science and Economics and pursued a legal career after Macalester, serving as an attorney for the U.S. Department of Interior, Frontier Refining Company, and Husky Oil Company before starting his own private practice in Boulder, CO. Anuta has been an active member of the Colorado chapter since the '70s, organizing ski days for alumni and hosting MAC in the City and other alumni gatherings. Anuta is a regular Annual Fund donor and a member of the James Wallace Society, Macalester's planned giving society.
"Participating in the Colorado Macalester alumni group has been fun for many years," said Anuta. "When we moved here over 55 years ago it allowed Barbara (Olds, '56) and I to meet established alumni and learn about our adopted state. Now I can reverse the process. Plus, at my age it's fun to associate with the newer graduates and learn what sort of issues they (and Macalester) face today. I would certainly encourage all alumni to get active. It benefits both the individual and the college."
