Welcome to the South Bend Alumni Association
Sunday, May 26, 2013.
South Bend Alumni Association (SBAA) board chairman Tim Baker announced that former South Bend Mayor Stephen Luecke has been named executive director of the organization. He will begin on June 10.
“We’re excited to have a person of Steve’s caliber to lead our organization as we continue to develop and grow,’’ Baker said.
Luecke was the longest-serving mayor in the history of South Bend, holding the office for 15 years until 2011. Prior to holding this office he served on the South Bend Common Council for nine years.
“I am honored to have been selected for this position and eager to join the South Bend Alumni Association team,” Luecke said. “The SBAA has a valued history of supporting our students and our schools. More importantly, they have a clear vision to expand these outstanding services. I look forward to working with graduates and with school and community officials to advance the SBAA mission.”
The South Bend Alumni Association awarded scholarships and grants in May to eleven local students. Recipients of the TCU/Superintendent’s Scholarships are Myles Bolden of Adams High School, Malcolm Cannon of Clay High School, Kathleen Price of Riley High School, and Nicole Figuero of Washington High School. The scholarships are $4,000 each, payable at a rate of $1,000 a year for four years. Other recipients are Melissa Konter, the Lauren Davis Scholarship; Elizabeth Arndt, the Joseph Fragomeni Sr. Scholarship; Toria Sullivan, the Kathryn & William Shields Scholarship; Andrew Gnott and Emily Lyon, Endowed Scholarships; and David Shafer and Jacob Freske, Second Chance Grants. Each of those awards is for $1,000.
The weather was nice, the golf course was beautiful, and everyone had a good time May 15 at the annual TCU/Superintendent’s Scholarships Golf Tournament. OJS Building Services took first place with a score of 58. American Structurepoint captured second place with a score of 61, while third place went to Curtis Products, which scored 62. They each won foursomes of golf at area courses. Foursomes also were given to randomly selected places. Teams that won those were Laven Insurance, which placed 11th; Dudeck Roofing, which placed 12th; and Electronics, Inc., which placed 20th. Precision Control Team 1 walked away with last-place honors, with a score of 87.
