A Weekend to Remember
More than 550 alumni and their guests returned to campus in June for Reunion Weekend 2012. Mother Nature could not put a damper on this parade, as participants braved the rain, enjoyed an outstanding picnic and rally, and danced the night away at the always-festive class parties.
Celebrating the Gift of Education
Being selected as a Capital One Academic All-America is one of the highest honors a student athlete can attain. Bentley was fortunate to have six players earn the coveted credential from the College Sports Information Directors of America during 2011-2012. Here, the six (including Matt Michel '13, above) share their strategies for excelling in the classroom and on the field.
Jack Perri’s basketball philosophy dates to his days as a two-time Falcons captain: Concentrate on what you can control. The tenet has served him well both on and off the court.
In April, the Class of 1998 alumnus was named head coach of the men’s basketball team at Long Island University–Brooklyn, an up-and-coming Division I program that ranked fourth in the nation in scoring in 2011-2012.
Michael Abrahams ’77 can often be found shooting a weekly 18 holes at Leo J. Martin Memorial Golf Course in Weston, Mass. But the public course is more than a place to work on his drive: He manages its capital budget, along with those of every other state-owned recreational property in Massachusetts.
The alumnus has been director of capital funds for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) since 2006.
Kate Maloney Albiani ’00 embraces a challenge. She doesn’t blink when couples arrive at her interior design firm with entirely different visions for the living space they want to make over.
“I’m working with a husband and wife right now. He’s very traditional – likes the whole New England-style antique thing – while she is very modern. She wants a streamlined, tailored, high-gloss, glam look,” says the owner of Cambridge, Mass.-based Kate Maloney Interior (KMI) Design. “‘Good luck,’ they told me. ‘I don’t know how you’re going to do this.’”
David Samra ’86 figures that he has scrutinized more than 10,000 companies throughout the world during his nearly 20 years in international investing. His mission: finding stocks that are trading at bargain prices relative to the underlying value of the companies they represent.
To Tina Bennett ’89, her job as president of Conservation Services Group (CSG) isn’t just work. The company’s mantra of energy efficiency is illuminated throughout her household in Medway, Mass.
“We’ve invested in energy-efficient windows and high-efficiency appliances. We also recycle as much as we can and get our two kids involved in that as well,” Bennett says. “It’s part of our daily routine and conversation.”
