James Smith '75

After returning to the area recently and seeing how the Pitt-Greensburg campus had grown, I was interested in reconnecting and found that I could be involved with activities and the alumni group. As I became more involved, the opportunity to serve in the PGAA as a Board member arose. Since I had time and was enthusiastic about making a contribution, I was glad to participate. At this time, there are two primary goals that I would like to pursue: to further the mission of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg by helping to differentiate it from competing institutions in the eyes of the public and prospective students and to engage both recent and long-time alumni in creating an active community of mutual support and help to enhance the value of the Pitt-Greensburg experience.

Diane (Williams) Hasbrouck '09

I am honored to serve as Vice President of the PGAA. It is very fulfilling to give back to the University that provided me many opportunities to excel as a student leader. While serving on the PGAA Executive Team, I plan to contribute to the growth of already established PGAA events, add new opportunities for alumni, and continue to involve more alumni with Pitt-Greensburg and the PGAA. Another goal is to assist the campus community to provide future and current Pitt-Greensburg students with memorable leadership, service, and career opportunities.

I loved my time as a student at Pitt-Greensburg, and I want to continue my involvement as an alum. The moment I heard they were looking for new members for the Board, I immediately knew it was an opportunity I wanted to be a part of. As a student, I was heavily involved with campus clubs and organizations, such as SGA, SAB, Residence Life, and Habitat for Humanity. Through those experiences, I was able to make changes on campus and make a difference in other people's lives. With all my past experience, I hope to bring some fresh ideas to the PGAA and give back to Pitt-Greensburg since it has given me so much. I am really looking forward to being a voice for the alumni and helping out with events, such as Blue & Gold Weekend.
