Tucson alumni host Thunderbird president
Thunderbird President Larry Edward Penley, Ph.D., traveled two hours south on Nov. 7, 2013, to meet with alumni in Tucson, Arizona, and to answer their questions about the school’s planned alliance with Laureate Education. “I think most are now more comfortable with the planned alliance,” Tucson chapter member Gary Miller ’73 said. ”Dr. Penley was honest and answered questions, mine included.” Tucson alumni will not meet in December 2013 due to the holiday rush, but chapter co-leaders plan of a full calendar of events in 2014.
