A Message from Your Class Reunion Chairs

Michigan Tech from the air

Dear Class of 2010

Alumni Reunion 2020 begins Thursday, August 6, with virtual content being posted on the reunion website. While this is not the way we would have liked to hold reunion, the Alumni Engagement staff has put together some fun content for us to see what’s going on at Tech and rekindle those memories of the Copper Country.

Be sure to log on to our Class of 2010 page and comment at the bottom of the page to share a memory or share what you’re up to now.

Also, if you haven’t contributed to our class gift effort yet, please consider doing so. We recommend giving to the Husky Emergency Assistance Fund, but gifts of any amount to any area of campus will help current students and show what Michigan Tech means to us.

We look forward to interacting with you during our virtual reunion. Congrats on reaching this 10-year milestone!

Sincerely

Stephanie (Lindstrom) Heiden and David Heiden
Class of 2010 Reunion Co-Chairs
