As a part of Western’s Back 2 Bellingham 2017 alumni weekend, ATUS hosted a reunion for current and former employees. The event featured a fabulous spread of dishes and desserts prepared by current and retired employees of ATUS. Wine for the event was bought by Troy Mandeville, a former student-employee of the ATUS Help Desk. His family donated several cases from their private label. Other beverages were provided by Thomas Kirby, a Talent and Recruitment Coordinator for the Ben Kinney Companies Tech Division. Thomas is also a Western graduate. He was at the reunion recruiting students for internships.
The reunion was a time to become reacquainted with former colleagues. Additionally, David Hamiter and AJ Barse introduced a new campaign to raise money for future events and future students of ATUS. The Viking Funder site prominently features a video describing new services provided through the Student Tech Center and the new Digital Media Center.
The event could only be provided through the help of those hosting the food tables, financial donors and those lending a hand in set-up and tear-down. We thank you all.
Look forward to another reunion on or about May 19, 2018.
