Dozens of alumni and friends gathered on September 23, 2012 in Houston, TX to welcome President Farvardin. Following up on the success of last year’s beach party in Galveston, Dr. Farvardin was welcomed by the Houston Alumni Club Chair Frank Roberto ’76 and his wife Margaret Rose at Brennan’s of Houston, the city’s premier destination for Southern hospitality and fine dining.
More than 35 alumni and guests attended the lunch and listened about the positive changes happening at Stevens. Dr. Farvardin spoke with alumni and answered questions ranging from recent U.S. News and World Report rankings to increasing admission standards.
The event also marked a changing of the guard for the Houston club. Remarking on the distinguished service of chair emeritus Al Foytlin ’68, Roberto said, “I am honored to continue in his footsteps, and all those before him, in bringing the group together for friendship and entertainment.”
