“Now more than ever, we all need to stay positive and engaged and we need to have the courage to connect with others in a genuine way,” Adasiewicz says. “I look forward to being a part of the great things this new LeBow alumni organization will achieve together.”

The Alumni Association kicked off their slate of programming for the year with a virtual Quizzo night, held via Zoom, on October 29.
