Chris writes, “These ideas, like all creative thoughts, are just the seeds I want to plant in your minds for what is possible. You guys are the experts here. Feel free to write back with new ideas for how we can get people reconnected and make our alumni network as strong and vibrant as we can.”
Chris and members of the eighth-grade Class of ’08 kicked off the Nueva Connection Challenge! On December 23, 2018, Chris hosted his own reunion with six ’08 classmates, including one attending via Skype. Chris explains, “We visited the Hillsborough campus, watched a rendering of the planned new buildings, talked about what we’ve been up to, how college was, and our career paths. A lot has happened since we graduated from the eighth grade.”
