  1. Great to hear from you…
    I really will try to make it up for the reunion.

    Still living in upstate NY near the Adirondacks in Utica NY. An hour East if Syracuse and lake
    I tell people here I’ve moved to a big
    City and warmer weather.

    1. Hey Brian, it’s been a few years since this reunion but, maybe this will get through to you. Just wanted to see how you and Marge are doing. We had an MKM reunion in August and you were missed!

  2. Tim with DTE Energy Regulatory Affairs (started out in the steam heating plant…thanks to thermodynamics!). Nancy with Eastpointe Schools as a Speech Pathologist.

    Looking at retirement, but working a little longer to keep 2 of our triplets on the health care plan!
    One of them is doing her Master’s research at MTU right now & starting med school in June. The one not needing our health care is an MTU grad! So happy to have two of them experience the best university in the country (daughter #3 -Kent State grad- regrets not going to MTU).

    We are always in Copper Country Alumni weekend, so hope to see you at Eagle Harbor Beach, the KBC, or at reunion activities!

    1. Hey Mark. After getting my MS and Ph.D. From MTU in 1987, I moved to Pittsburgh and retired Nov. 30, 2018 after 31 years at Alcoa.

  3. Well, no physical reunion at MTU or KBC this week, but we are physically distancing at Eagle Harbor beach this week. Nancy Masnado Bloch, Tim Bloch, Joe Tinetti & Theresa Carlton Clevenstine

  4. After working as an engineer for IBM for sixteen years, I resigned to pursue my dream to “teach the future engineers of IBM.” This fall, I will start my seventeenth year as a physics teacher. I currently teach at the Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public High School in Worcester, Massachusetts. We are an International Baccalaureate school so I have the challenge of teaching Thermal Physics, Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics. I love physics and I love working with teens. It is the perfect career for me!

  5. +Hello-Am retired at 70 miles from MTU.Still love this country but then I was raised in it.I had many jobs but most were in sales.

  6. Hi,
    Ken Goodwin (’81) and I live in NW Indiana and are doing well. We both hired into Inland Steel in July 1981 after he graduated and moved to this area. I worked there until 2004 (IT) and he just retired from there last year after 38 years (engineering, analysis, purchasing, etc). We have two 30-something sons who are married who both have little daughters. This pandemic has certainly screwed up a lot of things, but we are blessed nonetheless. Stay safe!

  7. Still working at the former Bethlehem Steel Plant in Burns Harbor, IN since spring of 1980, along with my wife (MTU as well). Enjoying CapEx project management for the corporation as well as the grand kids when I’m not at work. Still having fun water skiing and playing ice hockey although the COVID-19 situation did put a halt to things for a while. My best to everyone during these unusual times. Take care!

  8. Hello, did anyone here attend Dr. Chimino’s Physics lectures? Wondering if anyone here is holding on to the test sheets from Dr. Chimino with formulas on the back.
