I owe a great deal to Marquette University (beyond an education, it is where I met my wife), and my volunteer work has centered on the University. While serving as president of the College of Communication Alumni Board, I helped establish a Mentor Program. It annually pairs up 75+ undergrads and professionals in a year-long program of meetings and events that provide guidance and direction for students, and sometimes lifelong friendships as well.
