A View of RECONNECT II

reconnectII

Held July 21–24, RECONNECT II united alumni across decades and celebrated the University's African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American community. More than 600 alumni, friends, and family members returned to the Heights for a variety of engaging events, including presentations from the admission office and the AHANA Alumni Advisory Council; a welcome from University President William P. Leahy, S.J.; newtworking; campus tours; and a service showcasing Voices of Imani current students and alumni.

The highlight of the weekend was the black-tie gala held on Saturday evening, featuring a moving tribute to Keith A. Francis '76. Francis was a prominent member of the AHANA community who served as a mentor to countless BC students and alumni and was instrumental in bringing prospective AHANA students to campus. A University Trustee, Francis passed way in 2011, though his legacy continues to shape BC today. In addition to the tribute, the inaugural Keith A. Francis Inspiration Award was presented to Dan Bunch '79, MSW'81, director of Learning to Learn at BC.
